The Air Jordan 20 “Playoffs” is definitely one of the most eye catching Air Jordan models to be released this year. That is a little surprising considering how it only use three colors – but arranged in such a way that you cannot help but stare. It is a high ankle design that does not have any laces but rather, uses an ankle strap to keep the shoes safe and secure.

Air Jordan 20 “Playoffs” Design
The first thing you should know about the Air Jordan 20 “Playoffs” is that it does npt come with the traditional design. There is no tongue or laces to speak of in this model and there is a small skin gap showing right below the ankle strap.
The Playoffs makes use of two major colors: black and white. The trim is vertically divided into the two colors with zero markings. Unlike other designs where each shoe is a perfect replica of the other, Playoffs makes use of the mirror’ image. Hence, the white portion is located at the inner portion of the feet while the black is placed at the outer side. When you put the two side by side, you will have a large white space in between, actually making this stand out more than your typical Air Jordan.
What really completes the look is the large silver picture on top of the shoe where the laces should have been. Horizontally transcending the center is a white box with black markings and doodles, combining a variety of icons and logos related to Air Jordan. Most obvious is the Jump Man logo done in black and marginally larger than all the doodles in the design.
Right on top of the white box is a silver patch, this too bearing the Jump Man logo. From the back, you’ve got the “456” design embedded into the fabric, making it easy to see despite the color. The other shoe sports the same design but instead has the numbers “123” carved into it.
The soles follow the same vertically divided pattern on the toe box, one side grey and the other side a shade of silver. The bottom part is adorned with basketballs scattered throughout the length of the shoe, done mostly in silver, white, and black.
