Air Jordan 8 'Playoffs' back for the win
When Michael Jordan first rocked the Air Jordan 8 "Playoffs" back in 1993, he did so while trying to beat an impressive Phoenix Suns team. After battling to the top, the sneakers became almost as legendary as the man wearing them. Now, the kicks are being re-released for the third time since they first came out and sneakerheads around the nation are likely rejoicing.
According to Sneaker Watch, the "Playoffs" come right on the heels of the Air Jordan 8 "Bugs Bunny" kicks, meaning fans of the Jordan brand are sure to be spending all of their pay to pick up the latest in the collection. Not only are these kicks famous for the games they were originally worn in, but also because they don't feature the famous Nike "Swoosh" logo.
In fact, back in the early '90s, the man behind the shoe, Tinker Hatfield, insisted that Jordan's "Jumpman" symbol was famous enough, and that the kicks didn't need the "Swoosh" to sell in stores, High Snobiety repots. With so much history, the kicks are sure to fly off the shelves when they're released June 29. They're also popular thanks to the all black colorway with pops of orange, blue and white on the sides.
Those interested in buying a pair can do so by heading to Jimmy Jazz stores or JimmyJazz.com.
Are these the sneakers you've been waiting for all year?
