Air Jordan 12

The Air Jordan 12 is one of the most beloved Air Jordan sneakers of all time. The simplicity of the shoe and the sleek Tinker Hatfield design has allowed them to endure for decades now. The stories and legendary feats of Michael Jordan are also intertwined with the legacy of the Air Jordan 12. the AJ 12 debuted in a black and white colourway, with inspiration drawn from the Japanese flag.

The XII had a Zoom Air Unit, which was a first for a Jordan sneaker. It has a modified herringbone pattern for improved traction and an improved carbon fiber shank plate. The 12 is one of the most durable Air Jordan shoes ever made. It has a red Jumpman logo on the tongue. The lacing eyelets are metal. The 12 features various branded elements. Jumpman logos are debossed onto the metallic silver lace stays near the collar. “TWO 3” is embroidered on the throat. Jordan banners run down the spine and the Jumpman adorned tabs.

Another reason why many consider the Air Jordan 12 an iconic signature model is because Michael Jordan actually wore them during while on his way to winning his 5th championship title (aka the second title from the second three-peat). Anytime a Jordan has a good backstory to it, it makes it easier for the shoe to connect and relate to the consumer.

The Air Jordan 12 being one of only 7 signature models that Jordan wore during the finals does just that.The design built upon the legendary success of recent Air Jordan releases and took its place among collectors’ favourites. In 1997, the AJ 12 was released in a red colourway, and was later retroed in other colours in 2003, 2009 and 2016.
