Air Jordan XII Retro ‘Playoffs’

air jordan xii retro playoffs 6 570x427 Air Jordan XII Retro Playoffs

The modern sneaker scene offers more retro releases than any other point in history, but there are times when the choices of what’s available seem a bit confusing.  For example, the Air Jordan XII ‘Taxi’ is a beloved design, and it’s one that translates well to a lowtop variant, but some sneakerheads wondered why we got another ‘Taxi’ Low this spring when they’d already dropped back in 2003, while some of the OG Twelves still sit on the shelves.  But that’ll change next year as we get three of the five originals including the ‘Bulls’ and ‘Obsidians’, along with this pair that was retroed in early ’04 and recently graced the cover of NBA2K10, the Air Jordan XII Retro ‘Playoffs’.  This is the shoe in which Michael Jordan closed out the 1997 NBA Finals in Chicago after a heroic performance in Utah wearing the ‘other’ postseason XII that’ll forever be known as the ‘Flu Game’.  These arguably have a better lifestyle appeal thanks to white instead of red mudguards paired with their black full grain leather uppers, but with the Obsidian pair also coming soon with the same blocking pattern, will you even be able to choose between them?!  Click through to see more of the ‘Playoff’ AJ12s and stick with Sneaker News for all the 2012 Air Jordan Retro release dates.  via Marquee Sole

Why can't we get plane ole retro's the red jordan on the back and the red jumpman on the toe throw the whole shoe off if the colorway ain't broke don't fix it hopefully these r just some samples

more jordans please
more jordans please

12 colorways rated in order frm 1st to last: playoffs, flint grey, french blue, bred,obsidian, taxis. I tend to lean more towards black or dark colored jays because their easier to keep clean

Y'all ready for another one of my lame azz posts?? Hating on every Jordan kick that's about to drop and the Sneakerheads that truly appreciate them....that's me son! When I'm not driving my Mom's minivan around town trying to mack on girls at the food court, you can usually find me in my room reading comic books and playing Risk with my stuffed animals. Again, this is aside from me being a chatroom gangster of course. Y'all know I "type tough" cause I is zon!! Yeeeeah boi!!!

U gotta be joking 2 minor changes and u bent outta shape, havent u learned by now they have to change something to keep the OG different from the retros and retros diff from retros. If there all the same the value of them goes down

Yeah, the Jumpman on the front sole is red rather than black too. Nice though. Much nicer than the fake looking IV's coming out next year.
