The Air Jordan X and XII seem to be favorites when it comes to re-imagining Air Jordans into lifestyle models. Truth is, the Ten and Twelve are two of the more simpler Air Jordans of all-time, so it makes complete sense that those two models in particular would translate into ideal ‘weekend’ shoes. The Air Jordan XII Clave was first previewed back in October, and reception to ‘hybrid’ model was a mixed bag. However, with this first look at the Air Jordan XII Clave in its rightful form, it’s clear that it would mesh perfectly with sneaker rotations heavy with Blazers, Tokis, Ainas, and other chukka-style ‘dress’-sneakers that have become so popular over the last few years. Two colorways will hit Jordan Brand retailers – the OG ‘Taxi’, and a new Varsity Red/White colorway – so continue reading for additional angles and let us know your thoughts on the XII Clave as it is currently scheduled for an April release.
Air Jordan XII Clave
Looks like another pair of office Jordans. Like the white! Stop hating, Jordan is a professional and professionals can't always rock basketball shoes. Real men with real jobs
See.. mayb if u made more concords, chicago 10s, cement 4s instead of dis bullshit, more people would b happy walkin around out here. Remember when js were 135 & their were pleeeeeeeeenty pair. Now they 160 & 20 to 30 pair at most places. Now u see where all theor attention is goin... buuuuulllllllshiiiiiit asssss concept lounge kicks dat look like cheap retros sold at a pay less
this shoe sucks because it doesn't have a galaxy pattern!!!!!!!1!!!11!!!! jordan sucks so bad!!!11!!!!1!!!! but still give us our retro releases!~!!!!11!!! (sarcasm) seriously the lack of intelligence of some of the people on here astounds me. i thought all you hypebeasts and fakers were too busy assaulting people for their Galaxy Foams? and PS: I actually like this shoe. Come at me bro!
are these for NBA players who have to dress up for Stern's punk ass dress code? Just wear solid 10s and you get the same dress-up effect, maybe even more so....who wants Lunarlon on a casual shoe? Try again JB.
I think they are nice, as an adult I cant wear a sneaker all the time. The taxi ones are nice, but a black or dark gray would be even better.
wouldn't mind getting these at all, sneakers like this are needed. time for suin different, suin classy .
Still trying to formulate in my mind how, exactly, I'd rock these, but the Taxis ain't so bad. I'm diggin' the outsole.
these were good then i saw the other pics, it was gabage. fix the back. i only liked the outsole cause it reminded me of the 12's
this si exactly why jordan should of never got its own side brand. its not gonna sell online, its not gonna sell at nike towns, its not gonna sell at an outlet, it simply wont sell! we all know this! it will sit and sit and sit at outlets before getting maked down on a hash wall, why make this junk. its pure junk. big freaking whoop its got lunarlon. so do my running shoes! do you know what i can do with 110 dollars?! its not even remotely what Jordan heads want as fans. does he ever listen to us NO he makes taxis in a clave shoe! BOO MJ your starting to piss us all off really bad!
