This Saturday, the Air Jordan 12 “Playoff” emerges in low-cut form celebrating the very same heritage and history as its traditional counterpart.
True to the original in every facet with exception to its height, this spring release of the Air Jordan 12 Low “Playoff” allows for ankle-bearing wears during the warm weather months. Not to mention securing “Playoff” 12’s without the resale prices of the original, which range upwards to $ 500 for the 2012 retro.
Calendar the February 25 Jordan Release Date this weekend and make sure to let us know if you plan to pick up a pair in the comments section below.
Air Jordan 12 Low “Playoff”

Earlier today we previewed the upcoming Reigning Champ x adidas Ultra Boost 3.0 collaboration. But that’s not the only release forthcoming between the Canadian sportswear brand and the three stripes. They’re also cooking up an AlphaBOUNCE colorway.
Similar in tone to its aforementioned counterpart, a grey mesh upper gives the shoe a tonal presence slightly offset by a speckled BOUNCE unit. This heathered look is one very foundational to Reigning Champ, as it’s an aesthetic often found on throughout their collection of hoodies, sweats and crews.
Give the Reigning Champ x adidas AlphaBOUNCE a better look below and keep it locked to Nice Kicks for more details.
It’s only the afternoon at Agenda Las Vegas, but the vampires are already out. Yup, Jim Jones is on deck at yet another Agenda tradeshow, promoting his New Vampire Life clothing brand. This coming season, the Capo certified line will launch an array of jerseys playing off some of basketball’s brightest stars both past and present with his own ad libs adding flavor and personality to each uni.
Often at Agenda, we caught up with Jimmy to hear about what kicks he brought out to Vegas and his favorite pairs to rock with his upcoming jersey collection.

Jim Jones: “You know the name, ju heard! The Storm Blues with the Golden State Vampire jersey, a lot of sauce drippin’. I felt since I was on the West Side I had to give them a little Golden State, West Side memorabilia. We out here, we saucin’, we drippin’ sauce like my n*ggas in Houston say!”
Anyone is Michael Jordan‘s immediate family is particularly privy to Air Jordans of all types. His wife, Yvette Jordan, probably has the best access of all. That notion is proven today when she debuted a one-of-one Air Jordan 1 “Banned” wedge custom.
SoleFly, a shop owned by Yvette’s brother, teased the image of Mrs. Jordan in the shoe which highlights wedge tooling similar to the Nike Dunk Sky Hi silhouette. Jordan Brand hasn’t much tinkered with this build on their sneakers, but it seems that what Yvette Jordan wants, Yvette Jordan gets.
What do you think of this take on the Air Jordan 1? Grab a better look below and share your thoughts.

With twelve NBA All-Star Game appearances behind him, LeBron James is already the all-time All-Star leader in points scored, dropping a combined 291 points that he’ll most certainly be adding to again this weekend.
When he takes the floor for the 66th annual game tomorrow night in New Orleans, he’ll once again be debuting a special edition pair of sneakers, which has become a customary occasion throughout his career. Ever since taking part in his first All-Star weekend in the wheat Air Zoom Generation during the 2004 Rookie Challenge held in Los Angeles, James has worn a collection of coveted kicks for each February’s festivities.
Check out every single sneaker worn by LeBron at All-Star Weekend over the course of his career in our latest edition of Kicks On Court Classic, and let us know your favorites in the comments section below.
