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.
