Air Jordan VIII Retro “Playoffs”
Just over 20 years since Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls defeated the Phoenix Suns to win the 1993 NBA Finals, Jordan Brand will re-release the identical pair of sneakers MJ wore during the series-ending Game 6 title win. Although MJ lost the regular season MVP award to adversary Charles Barkley that year, his attraction to pressurized situations carried into the finals where he averaged a record-setting 41.0 ppg, scoring more than 30 points in all six games, thus earning his third straight Finals MVP in what would be the last season before his first retirement. The Air Jordan VIII Retro “Playoffs” returns in all of its Chicago Bulls glory featuring a black and red team colorway in a nubuck suede upper. Fans of the commemorative model can purchase the strapped-up sneaker at select stockists this Saturday for $160 USD.
