Air Jordan 12 Retro Playoff

 

Another great release from Jordan Brand means more history for you guys. So lets get to it. 1996 held the release of on of my personal favorites.

The Taxi XII. They were released in November 1996 and retailed for a whopping $135. In 1997 Nike launched the new sub-brand called Jordan brand making the 12s one of the first Jays to be released under Jordan Brand. Also making them the first Jays to not feature a swoosh or “Nike” logo. They were given the name taxis as the sneaker features a black and yellow portion similar to NYC taxi cabs. The kicks are modeled after the Nisshoki



(the Japanese rising sun flag), as you can see by the stitching featured in the upper and the 19th century women’s boot



as you can see by the overall shape of the sneaker. The arch features two rands (A strip of leather placed under the back part of a shoe or boot to make it level before the lifts of the heel are attached) and embossed lizard skin making the sure extremely durable and good for ballin’.

But now for the release.

April 21st 2012 Jordan Brand will be releasing the Air Jordan XII Retro Playoffs.
