The ‘Cool Grey’ spin seems to work wonders on Air Jordan Retros, doesn’t it? After debuting over a decade ago with the Air Jordan XI, the following Air Jordan IX, IV, and III installment were instant hits and were all part of the 32-seed pool of the Sneaker News Non-OG Air Jordan Tournament. But is that the case for this Saturday’s release of the Air Jordan XII? While ‘Cool Grey’ all but guarantees success, the verdict is still out on the Air Jordan XII, as it incorporates Team Orange on the midsole Jumpman ‘plate’ as well as the TWO3 detailed on the tongue and the heel accents. This colorway of White/Grey/Orange has, in fact, been done before with 2008’s Air Jordan VIII (although that one used a ton of reflective material to give it a snazzy effect), but like the Charlotte Bobcats (which this colorway could be tied to), we could expect less than spectacular performance. Other ‘On The Fence’ spotlights like the Air Jordan X ‘Stealth’ are still available in retail stores, so will the Cool Grey XII join it? Let us know if you plan on copping or passing on the Air Jordan XII ‘Cool Grey’ below by leaving a comment and voting in the quick poll.

True jordan sneaker heads will cop all J's no matter what, and not make excuses.. Just be real and say you dont have the money or your mommy said no.. lmao yall are LAME
A true jordan sneaker head will cop all J's no matter what, no excuses... everybody saying ima pass and get the obsidians why not get both.. Just be real and say you dont have the money cuz you have to ask you mommy
on the fence. I love grey...just not the orange on these. May 19th is my bday. I will have to see them in person. 12's are one of my fav J's. Last pair I bought were the Flu-games and the materials were ok. Still rocking my obsidian lows
I think these 12's are smooth. Just a clean look. What make me laugh is most people who are passing are saying they passing because the Military's and Obsidians coming out right after. I bet if yall had the money yall wouldnt pass.
I just want em cuz they never ran this colour in the XII before, and whoever made that comment about the stealth X's = TRUTH! They looked like a regular damn $80 team jordan to me, but they sold out pretty quick. I've got these XII's in my closet, and 4 more pairs ready to sell on ebay about a year from now.
Reading through the comments most won't buy these which will make my experience all the better. I love 12s you can't wrong with owning too many. It is a classic looking sneaker and style. I'm very lucky and blessed to be able to get these on Saturday and also get the 4s and the other 12s coming. I will "cop" very happily.
XIIs are one of my all time favourite silhouettes so am copping to keep up the rotation, the colourway is ok but ive had enough of cool grey for about a decade now...
can SN be anymore on JB's nuts. on the fence but let's show a certain shoe a billion times otherwise JB won't pay us, that's SN's thinking behind it. THE SHOE GAME has this site beat in everything, they show one picture sometimes and you won't see it again, this site will show the same picture. i don't give a fuck if they never show my message. bunch of lame ass people behind SN, if this was 15 years ago you'd all still be working at MC DONALD'S
copped last week for retail, their cool, nice quality and looks good with sweats. Maybe not worth the price but only copped so I can get my hands on South beach Elites
These are nice looking. Not for that price though. I hope NOBODY buys it and it drops to about $60-$70 and I'll cop.
Thats BS . All Month niggas hype and say there gonna cop , then when its crunch time . niggas on to the next shoe -__- fckn hypebeast #COP
Lmfao at son who said no look pass. I definately agree. Those joints is weak. Anyone who was born after 1988 probably think they hot.
ima cop but i can see why people dont want to buy them with military 4s and obsidian 12s coming soon
those are really really nice actually, but i'll pass due to the fact that the olympic 6, obsidian 12 and military 4 are releasing soon.
Its said when this so called Collectors are worried about the resellers, man that should have nothing to do with you.... True Jordan Collectors will have these and if you got pull like me you should have had ur since Monday....... 252 we RuNnInG NC!!!! if you need sum thing early holla at us
I'm 1 that won't copp its too many other hot kicks that they bringing back to get why settle for shit that looks like this? Big waste of money n time I can see if they were releasing the official black n red leather XII's. I wouldn't be breaking my neck trying to get these but to each is there own.
why not get them... add them to the collection then sell all 3 of the 12s that are coming out this year for a great price
Be real Kane, stop acting like a tough Internet guy and admit mommy said no to you , get worked dawg u little square bear ROFLMFAO
All the XII's do have a smooth look to them. I like these because they're different and the orange looks nice with the grey. I copped the Cavs, I'm coppin these and the Questions next week. O.T. + no kids = copped!
you right they make all these excuses but when it realy come's down they dont have they money to be a true sneaker head or mommy said no... lol
Forgot to mention I seen and heard alot of people giving these the "bobcats" nickname or tying them to the bobcats. Maybe because I'm a New York guy but first thing that comes to mind everytime I see these is Syracuse
