Arguably the most popular colorway of the Air Jordan 12 is set for its second return to retail just a week from today. Made famous by Michael Jordan during the 1997 NBA All-Star Game and road to the Bulls' fifth championship, the "Playoff" Air Jordan Retro 12 spots a black tumbled leather upper with textured white leather mudguard overlays on the lateral and medial sides. Varsity Red works Jumpman branding and detailing on the tongue and heel, while grey takes care of tabs on the side panels and a faux carbon fiber plate in the sole.
Look for these classics at spots like Miami's Mr. R Sports next Saturday.
