We were teased with some Air Jordan XIIs in the spring, when the low cut version of the white/black/taxi and an all-black/patent model of the shoe were released.

This summer, fans of the XII will get what they were hoping for, in a large, four-shoe release (including a new cool grey colorway) of the shoe that MJ rocked in the 1996-97 season. Three OG colorways will return as well, which include the obsidian/white, the white/black/taxi and the black/white playoff shoe.

UPDATE: Looks like I jumped the gun with the release date. The Jordan XII releases next summer, in 2012.
