An initial look at the 2023 version of the “Playoff” Air Jordan VIII

The Air Jordan VIII turns 30 in 2023 and in commemoration of that milestone Jordan Brand has wisely decided to re-release the “Playoff” colorway.

The returning version of the shoe MJ wore as he and the Chicago Bulls defeated the Phoenix Suns 4-2 in the 1993 NBA Finals to cap their first three peat seems to be a fairly competent recreation of its forbear.

It sports a black upper with white, black and red graphical print overlays flanking the lower heels. Red-bordered white “23” can be seen on the top strap that criss-crosses the upper with a carpeted Jumpman seen on the tongue. Like the original , the 2023 version sports red red pull tabs instead of the blac seen on the last released version in 2013.

The “Playoff” Air Jordan VIII is scheduled to return September 30 at and select retail establishments; they will carry a 210 USD sticker price.
