The Air Jordan 12 Playoffs are hands-down my personal favorite Air Jordan of all-time. There are a variety of reasons for this choice, from Michael Jordan messing around and getting a triple-double in the 1997 NBA All-Star Game to hitting the game-winning shot of Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz to this commercial, and the common thread among them is that MJ was a badass and he was wearing badass shoes. From the black and white color blocking that looks intimidating yet awesome as hell to the hits of red throughout the shoe, it was a perfect for the black socks and bright lights of a Chicago Bulls playoff run.
So how do you make the greatest pair (again, this is my opinion; you are totally within your right to disagree, but know that I don’t care and I won’t change my mind) even better? By adding gold, of course. Similar to how the DMP Air Jordan 11s made the Concords even better by ditching the Concord part and making it gold, the Air Jordan 12 Wings does away with the red and silver and opts for something a little more classy and refined. Enter the gold.
Black, white and gold. Yeah, it doesn’t get much better than that. And Mr. Foamer Simpson has a pair and put up an early review about it. Yeah, I’m jealous, I won’t lie. For more news and information on this upcoming release, check out our Air Jordan 12 Wings launch page.
