The 2023 edition of the Air Jordan 8 Retro ‘Playoff’ celebrates the 30th anniversary of the shoe that Michael Jordan wore when he captured his third NBA championship in 1993. Previously released in 2013 and 2007, the legacy silhouette carries a black nubuck upper with a unique cross-strap design for a secure, locked-in fit. A crimson Jumpman decorates a tongue patch made with fuzzy chenille, while an embroidered ‘23’ lands on the vamp. A red and black brushstroke graphic adorns synthetic overlays along the lateral and medial sides of the ‘Playoff’ 8s. The sneaker rests on a matching black foam midsole with glossy sidewalls and encapsulated Air-sole cushioning. A multicolor rubber outsole reveals a golden Jumpman logo under the forefoot.
