The Air Jordan 12 Black Taxi sneakers by Jordan are a must-have for sneaker enthusiasts. The name of this Jordan 12 colourway comes from the all-black upper combined with the metallic gold accents that dress the eyelets and part of the mudguard near the midsole of the sneaker.
Made with high-quality materials, they provide a comfortable and supportive fit. Varying shades of “Taxi,” the same yellow hue that emerged on the original Jordan 12 back in 1996, then, animate everything from the “JUMPMAN”-branded lateral accent above the midsole to the upper eyelets. A suede upper that comes in a padded, quilted fashion surrounds the ankle, and a pull tab on the heel allows for the sneaker to be put on and removed easily.
Air Jordan 12 History
Released in 1996 and designed by Tinker Hatfield, the AJ 12 debuted in a black and white colourway, with inspiration drawn from the Japanese flag. The design built upon the legendary success of recent Air Jordan releases and took its place among collectors’ favourites.
