We’ll spare you the Jim Mora quote (already used it for the XIIIs), but we are indeed talking about ‘playoffs’ here on Sneaker News. One of the great understated additions to the Air Jordan Legacy will see its first retro run since 2004, and thanks to the complete lack of tweaks, they are indeed who we thought they were. The Air Jordan XII Retro ‘Playoffs’ reminds us of a time when Michael was play[ing] to win the game[s] leading up to his fifth NBA Championship ring, an achievement culminated in June 1997 when he hoisted the Larry O’Brien trophy at United Center rocking this very pair. You might have also seen them on the cover of NBA 2K10, so especially for younger sneakerheads who won’t remember that these effectively booted the also-upcoming OG ‘Obsidian’ AJ12 from its expected place as the ’97 All-Star shoe, these help acquaint the new generation with the period of unparalleled excellence that makes MJ most people’s GOAT. Click through so you can examine the subtle grandeur of this Tinker Hatfield masterpiece and stick with Sneaker News for the exact US release date. via in52

I'll probably get thumbed down and what not, but... I actually have to say the quality of the materials looks quite promising from those pics. The leather is DEFINITELY thick and the small fuzzes on the cutting edges give an impression of REAL materials used here. I find it funny how most people don't realize that 99% of all shoes are made of synthetic leather, so the "plastic" argument is silly. Nevertheless there are MASSIVE differences in quality and I stick to my point: These look good. Peace

Hates these (12's) in general when they dropped in 1996-97, but as time has gone by I appreciate the shoe design so much more and can't wait to cop a pair ! I don't mind the red jump mad at the front, brightens the shoes up a little .

Mate, I don't buy on hype. After the 11's, anything that followed was going pale in comparrison ! It just took me a long time to appreciate the design of the 12's, the simplicity of the design has stood the test of time and has given this shoe iconic status.

because opinions change dickhead

I'm 29 live on my own an have a family although I will cop both 12s an most of the releases this year i wish i had your attitude i wanna stop buyin kicks so bad but due to not being able to get them as a child i buy them all now but sometimes i look at the cash i spend an think what if i saved that money but as long as income is rolling in as it is i guess im good but if the income stop ebay will be my best friend

ILL WILLS

I agree but there are older folks who are able to get them both, thank god cuz I want them, kobe big bang and the cement 4's. I dont mind all the newer sneakerheads but it just sucks you all make it harder and more expensive to get kicks these days. That said have respect for your elders. Also when you say €ay shit it sounds really €ay

sorry buddy but umm i got children to feed bills to pay...? shoes are not that important to me as they once where not really wanting to spend about almost 400 in a month on shoes...i mean im sorry that im not as this guy says a "wannabe 15 20 year old sneakerhead" which you probably are...and living with your parents no bills or nothing must be nice...anyways keep your self in place little man...
