There have been Cool Grey renditions of several Air Jordan Legacy silhouettes over the decade-plus since the Air Jordan XI first brought us this crisp look. And with the response to each pair being so overwhelmingly positive, one could argue that it’s currently the single hottest shade on Jordan Brand’s color wheel. This new Air Jordan XII coming up for the summer serves that tradition of excellence well, opting for a warm orange twist that’s one step beyond the various lace swaps to which the base colors are so friendly. The selection of Team Orange keeps these just as versatile a match, a reminder that the mix of red and yellow is as easy to compliment as it is difficult to rhyme. Have a closer look after the jump and check back with us for the exact release date for this May drop. via SH
Air Jordan XII
Cool Grey/Team Orange-White
These are fresh as fuck..i thinkk I mite even cop too am I the only one talking about this dope ass shoe and not hype..real sneakheads get the shoe no matter what I havent missed out on any shoe I wanted except the concords but that shit was crazy
I don't know about you guys but I like how JB added the orange to the shoe other than just making it completely grey and white. Now only if they could make enough for everybody...smh wishful thinking...
SCOTTIEBUDDZ is whats killing the sneakergame, i am NOT going to buy a pair of sneakers that origionaly cost $150 for $400...MY time is important and costs money, so I REFUSE to stand in lines and camp out for days for some freaking sneakers, i buy sneakers to wear because they are fire. most of the retro's i buy it/s because i loved them growing up, lived through them and want them again...that was the dumbest statement ever, determination to camp out, i have a damn house, why would i willingly want to sleep outside for some sneakers.... Real sneakerheads ROCK their kicks, your a COLLECTOR....collect on young buck!!!
Quote:ROFL, you are the hypebeast "pride myself on having pairs not to many people have", exactly you dont want a shoe because you like it, you dont want a shoe because you think ir performs well or looks good; you only want a shoe because its "limited" and because the your mom and dad will buy your $500 shoes for you. GTFO you stupid hype beast piece of shit. only idiots like you that have never played a sport in their life are whats keeping this hyped shit going. to walk around the mall so dudes can check out your feet. LOSER ____________________________________________________________ NICE! EXACTLY what I was thinking when I read his post. Fucking Hypebeast, Have fun collecting all the newest shoes you "think" are rare... All us OGs will have the OG pairs that are really rare and, because we have been established in this game for decades... We already have a connect to get the shoes that mean something to us and that we love. So have fun standing in line and going through a whole lot of bullshit to make a few hundred... I usually drop that the Friday before the J's come out at the club wooing your bitch, NIGGA!
The only Grey 12's were the flint grey not cool grey...And these are real cold i wana cop but I have had white bottom 12's before and once it gets dirty after a few wears they are almost impossible to get back lookin presentable and its alot of sick releases comin out...Still contemplating these cus they are sick
12s one of my all time favs. Bought my first pair back in 1996 from jc penney for $90! Im getting these along with all the other 12 releases coming this yr. I skipped the royal 10s and I'm skipping on the stealth 10s aswell to me they aren't must have so I rather let someone else get the chance to own a pair of sneakers
I got da cool grey 11 but these are different & unique... so i think i might grab these. Not gonna cop da 11 lows since dats jus chaos waitin to happen. So ill consider these in May
Nike should stop making people fight for sneakers. Put enough pairs out for everyone. Stop letting these resellers get the upper hand on your loyal customers. In good time Nike will find itself coming in second to reebok and adidas because its going to be hard for the real nike lover to find the shoe they desire or even see the sneaker in the streets on people feet. Just sick and tired of the Nike. About to be a former customer.
would of liked the shoe 10Xs better! if they would of kept it plain with just grey and white...honestly i mean the orange makes it pop...but now its probably ganna be harder to match if it was grey and white..it would be a definite cop...but that orange throws me off...idk...man! it would of been perfect just white and grey!
People should boycott resellers! If you dont get the shoe,then you dont get it. In the end youll eventually get over it. If resellers get stuck with shoes,then they will stop with their BS. In the long run we will benefit.
Only a hypebeast would say make more pairs. Making more pairs of a sneaker just defeats the purpose of collecting and being in this lifestyle and game. I pride myself on having pairs not to many people have. Nike will never come second behind reebok or addidas, you dont see any other brand having people wait for there exclusive kicks like nike or jb. And honestly nobody gives a f**k if your going to be a former customer, especially nike. That just shows you dont have the determination to camp out and get your pair yourself and shows your not true to this lifestyle and your deff not a real sneakerhead. Just means more pairs for real sneakerheads.
Hypebeast? Scottybuddz is an idiot without a job or has to be in high school. Hypebeast? Hypebeast stands outside for a week like yourself. Make more pairs so the real sneakerheads can get off of work and find them a pair they really want. Instead of having scottybuddz and his butt buddies take em all to resell. Sorry I have a life scotty and you should pride yourself on keeping ya moms off that poll. P.S. Scotty doesn't know that fiona and me do it in my van every sunday She tells him she's in church but she doesn't go Still she's on her knees and scotty ......................................................
i have a job. Thats nothing to do with being determine idiot. Life is more important than kicks you juvenile. Make more sneakers so when hypebeast like yourself finish waiting on line for a week, I can get off of work knowing scottybuddz and his homo friends didnt snatch all the latest. By the way you have nothing in ya closet thats says im the only one with these but those metallic swoosh panties u got for fagentines day. Think b4 you type. Thumbs down sucker. Little six grader tried to flex. FOH
ROFL, you are the hypebeast "pride myself on having pairs not to many people have", exactly you dont want a shoe because you like it, you dont want a shoe because you think ir performs well or looks good; you only want a shoe because its "limited" and because the your mom and dad will buy your $500 shoes for you.
