Those who stopped by PSNY’s 330 Hudson pop-up shop in New York today caught the first glimpse of the label’s unreleased “Wheat” Air Jordan 12 collaboration. It didn’t take too long to get an answer to the burning question.
The Air Jordan XII is arguably one of the greatest sneakers in Michael Jordan’s signature line. Originally released in 1996, the XII is most known for Jordan’s “Flu Game” performance and the Chicago Bulls’ subsequent victory in the 1997 NBA Finals. Twenty years later, Jordan Brand is updating the silhouette that regularly uses a mixture of leather and reptile-like material on the upper with a different material — nylon.
We’re currently in the midst of Jordan Brand celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 1, and the Nike offshoot has big things planned past the end of this year. Announcing in a press release today, Jordan has many retro sneakers planned for Spring 2016, and they pay homage to critical junctures in Michael Jordan’s history.
The Air Jordan “Lab Series” continued last month with the patent-coated 11Lab4, and now we have a better idea of which model will be getting the hybrid treatment next.
