Is there a more perfect date than June 23rd for an Air Jordan Retro release?  Coming just after the end of a gruelling school year, a late June drop also signals the end of the NBA season, and for Michael Jordan during 1996-97, that also meant the fifth of six championship rings.  Coming up this June on ‘his’ day will be the only one of the five OG Air Jordan XII colorways MJ never wore, the Obsidian and white AJ12 whose French and University Blue accents remind us that tonal designs are timeless, even if the majority of sneaker releases only discovered this in recent years.  We’ve been waiting fifteen years for this utterly timeless style to earn a retro release, and with some Korean shops already moving their stock, the June 23rd release date feels even closer. A detailed viewing courtesy of IST below, so take a look, and if you can’t wait the two months, cop ‘em now on eBay.

Playoffs, Grey/orange 12s and obsidians are all a must, I'm a huge fan of 12s. Thank you to everybody who will skip the playoffs to get the obsidians, thank you to everybody who is sleeping on the grey/orange joints and thank you to everybody getting the playoffs and skipping on the obsidians- I got everything covered

Most of us got playoffs from 04 not to many have these. Yeah you might see a few walking around in B- grades 97 saying there OG. But OG's sold in the US came from China not Taiwan so there fake. I need two pairs because I cant do another 15 years I'll be too old

Unless people stop over paying individuals for their lack of service, then the hypebeast movememnt will continue. Celebrities are the biggest hypebeasts of all.

@CheckMyDope

well some people log on to SneakerNews in hopes to see sneaker news. some people like seeing detailed images of a sneaker before waiting in line for potentially hours so they can decide whether they like how it looks and most people understand this so they don't complain and whine about "hype" that was never really intended in the first place.

please stop calling shoe collecting a game. A game is when two or more opposing people or groups compete. There is no competition in collecting.

IMKING

how is it hype? this is a sneaker site so they are going to post pics and articles bout sneakers. if you don't like it then go somewhere else.

First off a competition is two or more people competing to get somthing. there for your wrong.

I guess you've never been in a line, or had to decide which shoe store to run to, to line up. Or what door of the mall to line up at. It seems to be a huge game with about 250 players per drop these days.
