Air Jordan, meet Full-length Zoom Air. The Air Jordan XII was the first Air Jordan shoe to feature Nike’s state-of-the-art Zoom Air cushioning, but face it, Michael could’ve led the Bulls to a fifth championship and a 69-win season wearing Jesus sandals. The Air Jordan XII, a Tinker Hatfield joint, will make a return in 2012 in a number of original colorways, like the Obsidian/White colorway that has yet to re-release, and the Black/White ‘Playoffs’ colorway that was re-issued just once before. Here’s a quick look at the 2012 Samples of both the ‘Obsidian’ and the ‘Playoffs’ Retros; if the 2008 CDP release of the Taxis are any indication of the quality of the 2012’s, we’re definitely in for a treat. Check out the extra shots below and let us know which of the two you’ve been eagerly waiting for. via kimchee2go on NT.

hey i have the OG obsidian 12s size 12 in excellent condition for sale hmu at firstname.lastname@example.org
Well.....it looks like I am going to lose my house because imma be broke lol. I may be homeless but I got the freshest kicks!
i jus want da playoffs. those are 1 of da dopest cw i ever seen in da 12s in my opinion.... i still got da obsidian lows... hopefully they will release da white & french blu or da white & flint grey 12's next yr too
The first Jordan to feature zoom air... which was rendered absolutely useless by the solid midsole/outsole!! But I do love 12's given how solid the midsoles on most jordans were up to xiii its no wonder mj had knee and shin splint problems!
Love the 12's, only thing that would make 2012 better is if the REAL flu games dropped alongside the taxis and playoffs.
i wish it was still a pack like the rumors earlier said...but i'll settle for both coming out sometime either way hahaha
jauntae,NO... nubuck or suede looks like crap on the XII. How can you like those 2009 flu games???????It disgraces the OG. Anyways, I really hope Jordan Brand use smooth leather on the Obsidian XII like they did on the originals. OG or 2003 Retro black/red XII (Flu Game) > 2009 flu game
Is your brain filled with dumb juice or what !!! The 12's should stay with the leather! I still got my Obsidians chillin in the closest, ive worn them and the soles yellow-ish now and the leather is so so so so NIIIICE !!!! Anyways get off that dumb juice boy !
