Six years since its first retro release, the Air Jordan Retro 8 “Playoffs” returns. This particular colorway of the Retro 8 has major significance in basketball history because Michael Jordan wore this exact colorway when he completed his first three-peat with the Chicago Bulls. The “Playoffs” colorway features black durabuck all around the upper and the 8′s iconic graphics on the panels near the heel and inner lining. The red Jumpman on the neoprene tongue is surrounded by the chenille material exclusive to the Retro 8. On the outsole, all four colors used sparingly on the upper are prominently displayed.
The Air Jordan Retro 8 “Playoffs” will be available Saturday, June 29th at House of Hoops by Foot Locker, Foot Locker and Footlocker.com (starting at 8:00 a.m. EST) for $160. Check the Launch Locator to see which stores will have this release and take a look at the detailed photos below.
