History of Air Jordan 12 Playoffs

Michael Jordan debuted the Air Jordan 12 in 1996-97 where it earned the nickname of “Playoffs” for the role it played during his magical run in the All-Star Game. It featured alongside the “Flu Game” colorway. He wore them again in the post season. It was the first Air Jordans to feature the Zoom Air. Five colorways were released between 1996-97.

The Air Jordan 12 Retro Playoff was first released in 2004 with Nubuck leather. The specialty of the 2004 release was that it was online exclusive for ‘Team Jordan’ members who were registered members of Jumpman23.com and the Nikestore.com. They were mailed a unique URL including the date and time to buy the Air Jordan 12 Retro Playoffs 2004. Needless to say, the Nike.com site crashed as it wasn’t prepared to take the traffic load.

The Air Jordan 12 Retro Playoffs were released alongside other nine colorways including the ‘French Blue’ edition. And yes, it was released in low top which was again a first for Air Jordan 12. It returned back in 2008 as a part of the ‘Countdown’ package.

The Air Jordan 12 Retro Playoff saw its third run in 2012 alongwith the Obsidian edition in its original form.           

The features of the Air Jordan 12 Retro Playoffs for 2022 are similar. The only difference is its hardware that is given a slightly darker finish.

Metallic silver accentuates the sneaker’s top two molded eyelets. The Jordan brand is used on the heel tab, and the tongue has a red Jumpman emblem with "Two3" sewn down it. A red "23" appears on the outsole heel of a white Phylon midsole. For performance benefits, the Air Jordan 12 Retro Playoff has full-length Zoom Air cushioning, a carbon fiber plate, and a rubber outsole with herringbone traction pods beneath the forefoot and heel.
