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

I can't express the joy I have knowing these are dropping!...the last JB retro I was really really amped about was the Bordeaux 7s, but I remember everybody passing on these for the red and white's when they dropped the same day as og's. Ooohh how the tables have turned...
