Since the start of the year, all eyes have been directed to Jordan Brand. Even our preview of the brand’s 2022 Releases continues to dominate top stories, yet to fall out of the top 6. And among the Spring’s many exciting drops, one in particular, the return of the Air Jordan 12 “Playoffs,” has garnered the most attention.
Revealed by way of official images in January, the Retro bears an extremely close likeness to the original. If not for the slight gold hue of the metallic hardware, the colorway would be practically identical to its 1997 counterpart. Even the black tumbled leathers seem aged by over two decades, appearing glossy as if due to patina. By comparison, the white mudguard, sole, and silver tabs are much more standard, staying as such atop the accompanying GS, PS, and TD sizes, all of which are near carbon copies of the adult pair.
For a closer look at said kids range, see the official images of the kids sizes of the Jordan 12 Playoffs below. All three are to release alongside the adults later this March.
