This is a pair of Air Jordan VIII (8) Retro "Playoffs". This is the pair MJ wore during the NBA playoff run in 1993 which led to his 3th championship and first three peat. They defeated the Phoenix Suns who were led by the league MVP Charles Barkley. Jordan delivered one of the greatest playoff performances in the history of the game averaging 41 points per game in the Finals (highest ever). These shoes were Retroed in 2007 and there is no word of a re-retro so these are increasingly rare.
