The Air Jordan 12 is widely-considered one of the last great models in the first-half of Michael Jordan’s signature sneaker line. Among the dozens of colorways that’ve emerged on the Tinker Hatfield-designed sneaker, those associated with the Chicago Bulls’ 1996-97 NBA season are immensely popular, with the “Playoffs” style rumored to return Spring 2022 for its 25th anniversary.

Worn throughout Jordan’s second championship-winning playoff run upon returning to the Bulls, the sneaker features a predominantly two-tone arrangement. The lizard skin-mudguard pairs with a tumbled leather underlay that’s stood the test of time, retroing in 2004 and 2012 in original trim, and as a low-top in 2017. “Varsity Red” throughout the shoe’s branding – namely at the spine – maintain the pair from entirely following a “yin-and-yang” color platte, while further harkening back to the League’s rules of footwear having to match with a team’s uniforms. Shimmering metallic eye-lets near the top of the tongue also deliver personality to the Jordan 12, which has gone on to be a favorite among collectors.

Enjoy product imagery of a pair from 2012, and anticipate Nike SNKRS details to surface as the year comes to a close.
