The grade-school-sized Air Jordan 12 Retro Playoffs 2022 for grade schoolers (GS) uses the colorway Black/Varsity Red/White. White textured leather overlays the black tumbled leather upper. A light gray leather hit just above the white midsole says, "Jumpman." Jumpman icons appear throughout the shoe on the tongue, insole, outsole, silver metal tabs on the collar, and Jordan Team patch stitched onto the heel. A black and gray checked carbon fiber shank plate is visible through the white rubber of the white, black, and red outsole.
The kid-sized Air Jordan 12 Retro Playoffs 2022 GS was released on March 11, 2022, at a retail price of $150.
