Air Jordan XII – French Blue – Black – Copper | Unreleased Sample
We’re smack in the middle of a mini-renaissance of AJ12 fashion, so here’s a look at another piece of Air Jordan XII heat following last night’s ‘Ray Allen’ PE feature; this unreleased sample features the early ’04 French Blue version but with a solid black outsole and Copper/Bronze detailing on the heel pull-tabs and on the outsole, an apparent tie-in to the Washington Wizards. These could quite possibly have been the original ‘French Blue’ version, but in light of Michael’s retirement from the Wizards by the end of the ’02-’03 season, a true Wizards colorway would’ve been a clear anachromism. What resulted was the French Blue/Varsity Red colorway, which featured a white heel-tab, definitive red accents on the outsole (particularly the visible carbon fiber plate on the outsole), and the silver ‘Jumpman’ at the midfoot. Do you think Jordan Brand should release some ‘Wizards’ colorways of Air Jordan Retros? Check out the gallery of this rare Air Jordan sample below and if you want to throw some bids on this deadstock pair, check out the auction from rapodoc on eBay.
Sneakernews is promoting fakes? All jordans are made in China. I guess samples are a new way to promote fake jordans.
I don't wanna say they're bad, I just gotta see them in person to give a good enough opinion on these. Or at least better pictures.
i rememba tha 1st time i seen this sample before they changed the bottom... all i was thinking was the wizards...tdnt kno why they didnt finalize these
These where actually suppose to drop, but they went with the French Blue blue outsole on the final product.
I think this is a nice looking colorway! way better than those cool gray ones they actually released!!! I would've grabbed these. Cool grays are a pass.
I can't understand them shi*s/shoes!!!! A stupid thing to do, Cross breed the taxis and French blues!!!
You h y p e beasts kill me. What if I found a peach and brown colorway of a Jordan? Would you consider it a "penis" colorway and offer to suck on it until completion? You f u c k i n g F A G G O T S.
There is potential for some insane color ways with the wizards uniforms..I was never a fan of the released version, but these have what the other ones were missing for me.
If you're going to try and clown someone, spell everything out correctly stupid. These shoes are too nice
