Our latest piece of Sneaker News gives the spotlight to a shoe whose official name guarantees that only those lady sneakerheads who can fit into its grade school sizes might have been around the last and only time this model was released. The Air Jordan XII Retro GS ‘Obsidian’ takes us fifteen years back to a year when the NBA had its players suit up in their teams’ individual jerseys a la Major League Baseball instead of going with the traditional East blue/West red. So even though Michael Jordan never wore these in a game, they have an interesting story all the same, the visual component of which chronicled in additional images below. Photos: Air-Randy
Air Jordan XII Retro
Obsidian/White-French Blue-University Blue
and i wear a 7 so these look like my size. very fresh, cant wait to pop the tongue on these bad boys with those all white laces and silver lace locks hitting! smh #hotsummer
Had these in middle school and have to have them again..not too many new ones have the carolina scheme to em..come to think of it since 1998 every air jordan has gotten progressively worse so not sure color matters at this point..
Can't wait to cop these. My big bro had them back in high school and i wanted them ever since. Lol, its a shame tho that Im gonna have to wake up early and get to the store when they open just to get my pair. Times have def changed...
or you can just get them online. if you dont have to be the type of person wearing them the day they come out.
personally, ima cop these besides the Playoff ones... with so many black and red colorways, my collection kinda lacks color, except for a few shoes i own. so im bettin on gettin the Obsidians.
people dont care bout the low 12's too much but they love the regular 12 huh? lol. but the light blue accents make this shoe look good
Theres a 2 month time difference lol just cop em both like fuck it ..I have the 04 playoffs but ima cop the new ones too..the differences are subtle
