Kicks: Air Jordan XII Returns for Summer 2012

by Chris O’Leary/@olearychris

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.

    Hopefully they don’t pull a fast one and try to incorporate ‘nubuck’ or any sort of ‘suede’. Nothing kills my shoe boner then shoddy material.

    these are my favourite shoes of all time , i copped the red and white ones a few yrs ago and wore em out playing on concrete, great shoes though, these and the 2010s are the most comfortable Js for me.

    these shoes are the worst shoes for a quick guard to wear….
    the soles are very VERY hard and rigid hindering lateral movement noticeably….

    i bought these when they first came out sometimes in the late 90′s, paid $250 after taxes and wore them 5 times put them in storage and got lost in the move, i LOVE the way they look, but the way they perform was absolutely horrible
