It’s crazy to think that just twenty-five some odd games into the NBA season, we’re already only two months away from the Playoffs. And that goes double because not only will the Association’s postseason be starting on April 28th, but sometime during that month, we’ll also be revisiting a tournament run that culminated in the fifth title in seven years for what remains the league’s second-best team (regular season record-wise) of all time. The Air Jordan 12 Retro ‘Playoffs’ is like opening a time capsule from spring 1997, the kind of strong nostalgia juxtaposed against a timeless design that emphasizes how perfect this Tinker Hatfield effort really is. Jordan Brand couldn’t have picked a better model to release during an early 2012 that’s trending hard toward simple black and/or white designs, so now we’re just left waiting for that exact release date. Stick with Sneaker News to find out when that’ll be, and have a look at some new images in the meantime. via TTB
Air Jordan XII Retro ‘Playoffs’
B-grades or fakes! the "Jordan rectangle" logo is stitched on crooked ass hell. the right shoe is kind of showing the complete rectangle and the left the bottom is completely gone lol.
small changes. Still looks good. Glad they didn't change to black suede like they did on the FLU GAMES. Leather is better!
these look like they will be worth a cop but thats what I thought about the cements too until i saw they were mostly plastic. got my fingers crossed
Mmmmm...I can imagine feeling the glue stains and shitty synthetic leather uppers in my hand. I can also feel my wallet getting lighter for an unjustified price mark-up. C'mon JB if you're going to re-release these do it right or don't do it at all.
it looks like they went back to 1995 with the embroidery the jumpman on my 04 pair looks 10x better than that
i just pre-jacked in my pants. MOMMA!!! haha. I needs big kuntry what we got to do to get these lol.
couldn't agree with you more bro. I get them on employee discount and I've been second guessing alot of "must cops" i couldnt imagine paying retail for the recent releases
Then whats the point,on here, anyway common sense would tell u those r in the stage of crumbling. Sounds stupid to pass on these
15-20 year old wannabe ass sneakerheads yes you know who you are most of you reading this kill your self stop destorying somthing you know nothing about just cause of the hype and you wanna copy be your self cause all at once sometime between last year and the end of 2010 out of nowhere all you wannabes hit at once and true sneakerheads know what im talking about its just a fact and go figure it was when rappers started trying to wear Js rather your even aware of it or not...#annoying
I have no idea what half of what you said meant. Quit judging people's ability to make sneaker decisions on their age bro. If your half as badass and experience as you say you are than you must of started young too. Lastly rappers have been wearing J's years before lil wayne and all them were doing it. Get your facts straight before you start running your mouth or maybe your not as experienced and 'OG' as you seem to be claiming.
Once again I find it necessary to shit on this guys parade smfh who the hell made u the boss of all bosses when it comes to the sneaker head community!? Go kill YOURSELF! Why the fck does it bother u so damn much that these kids and other ppl are jus now getting involved in the game? It's because ur a self absorbed asshole stuck in an era of FOOTWEAR that's GONE! Let it GO! Face it, ur worthless to the sneaker head movement and ur opinion isn't worth the time u spent typing it. Ur like the old guy in the park, waiving his cane @ innocent kids living their life and having fun screaming "back in my day" maaaaan fck ur day!! Did ur grl friend or wife leave u for a 20 something in a fresh pair of J's?? Cuz u sound like a bitter DICKHEAD go hang urself w/ Reebok laces ***got... P.S. I'm from the Jordan era, I'm not some "kid"
Yuu cant categorize wannabees by age man im 18 years old with enough pairs of retros and OGs to be considered a real sneakerhead so keep your shit to yourself dick kuz Js may have started in 85 but were keepin these shoes alive.......but i agree fuk them wannabee ass bitches who fuck up the game for real sneakerheads
I'm copping 6 pairs bro so if u want a garunteed pair just hit me up and i will only charge u about 100 bucks over retail.
CONECT???..I also know "aloth" about MJ too..more attention on school less on sneakers you know nothing about!!
tell u what, thoes six pairs brett WAS getting,,well he just lost them with the help of my CONECT at ur local footlocker who has a brother at footaction who has a twin at champs, whos mom works as at a eastbay call center........ SOOO hit me up and i'll only charge u 125 over retail......the good thing is that im 14 so im ok with negotiating and i do know aloth about jordan and his shoes......i watched him play live.....one youtube clips!!!!
