Air Jordan XII ‘Playoffs’ – New Photos
It would be tough to distinguish one Air Jordan from another without the classification system we have in place today, but thanks to these easy terms like ‘Playoffs’, one can quickly become an expert on all the taxonomic ranks in the Air Jordan kingdom. Not even the most colored Air Jordan historian could pinpoint when and where this system was put into place, but let’s just be glad it exists! This particular Air Jordan XII colorway has adopted the ‘Playoffs’ moniker because Michael wore these during the Home Playoff games of the 1997 Playoffs; remember MJ posterizing Dikembe Mutumbo and introducing to the world his new standing fist-pump celebration after sinking a game-winner in Game 1 of the Finals? Yeah, he did that in these. We get to re-live those moments when the Playoff XII hits stores this April (the first time since 2004), so check out these new photos below and let us know where this ‘Playoff’ coloway ranks among your all-time favorites. via kickz-lab.
Air Jordan XII ‘Playoffs’
i have mine from 2004 so i am fine but 1 thing i keep seeing on the web is sure they released in february 2004 but the product date on the tag says 03
Aww man, I'm in middle school again. I bought these back in the day off Vintage USA deadstock for $80!! I bet the seller was smacking himself silly. I'm definately coppin.....
can't wait for these and the taxi 12s. you can never have too much of the playoff 12s. only 2 sneakers i'm going to get.
I'm gonna put these in a pipe and smoke em'...straight crack son!!!! Then I'm gonna double up!!!! JB is getting all my money....Chicago 12s, Cement 4s, Playoff 12s...oh, it hurts so good....
Definitely one of the most elegant Jordans. A lot of good memories and a clean bicolor look make these a must have. Can't wait.
I'm just praying they don't use the same cheap ass leather on these that they used on the Black Cement III's
I cant wait for these!!! you best believe im getting 2 pairs for these. one to rock casually and one to rock on the courts. no need to stock
I got the OG pair of these! And to all u mother fuckers sayin im lying! Eat a dick homos, i get wifi cus im in stable condition! Dribblez of old is back! Watch ur back wolf!
AUGUST OR SEPTEMBER. I'M GOOD ON TAXI'S I HAVE THE CDP & LOWS FROM LAST YEAR. I HAD AN OG PAIR BUT I SOLD THEM FOR $200.
YOU DIDN'T GET ANY OF THE 12'S THAT CAME OUT IN 2009? THE ONLY 12'S NOT WORTH GETTING WERE THE UGLY BUTCHERED FLU GAMES. IDK IF I'M GOING TO COP THESE I STILL HAVE THE '04 RETROS WORN 2X. THINKING ABOUT IT.
All they need to do is bring back the French Blue's, Flint Greys, LEATHER Bred's and sprinkle the Melo 12's in there... And 2012 would be the craziest year for kicks ever...
AAAAH! 2012 man thats all i got to say...what a year for retros! its ganna be great and crazzzy!! so many hot releases and some we still havnt even heard of yet!! can you say broken pockets! cant wait 10s 4s 12s pretty much 1 month after the other then the Olympics both comin juuly at the same time jordan needs to slow down some of us got childern! lol
