1997. 2004. 2012. 2022. It’s been a long time between drinks for the Air Jordan 12 “Playoffs”, but finally, after a ten-year absence, the sneaker will return for the celebration of the silhouette’s 25th anniversary.
Sneaker sleuth @zSneakerheadz has unveiled the release, which is expected to be but one of a handful of Jordan 12 options over the course of the year celebrating the milestone, but this is the first confirmation of an original colorway for 2022. Associated with the Chicago Bulls’ Championship-winning 1996-97 NBA season — which means they have, and will always be immensely popular — the pair (along with the OG Taxi and Cherry) has been near the top of retroheads’ wish list for years. Its versatile black and white leather build is met by unintrusive silver streaks, with Bulls flavor peppered in at the Jumpman and heel branding. For Spring 2022’s Air Jordan 12 “Playoffs” retro, you can expect much of the same — perhaps with something special included for it’s anniversary celebration — perhaps special packaging or insoles.
Grab a detailed look at the sneaker’s last retro (2021) here below, and make sure you’re following us on Twitter for further developments as we edge closer to its Spring 2022 release.
