Following both a Shock Drop and Exclusive Access release via the SNKRS app throughout the month of September, the heralded Air Jordan 8 “Playoffs” officially returns to stores this weekend.
Iconized for its role in the first of Michael Jordan’s 3-peat championship run, the Air Jordan 8 returns amidst the silhouette’s 30th anniversary to a tried-and-true reissue of the 1993 model. Jet-black nubuck overlays and tumbled leather sections pair with chenille tongue tabs and embroidered forefoot straps for a nostalgic trip into the Beaverton brand’s archives of decades past. Hits of “University Red” and white harken to over 30 years of lore while colorful stained-glass inspirations invigorate the inner lining and heel counter.
The Air Jordan 8 “Playoffs” releases tomorrow, September 30th, in full family sizing for a retail price ranging from $100-$210. In the meantime, the pair can be seen one last time below alongside our accompanying store list.
For more from underneath the Jumpman banner, the Jordan 4 “Sail” recently surfaced in first-look imagery.
