Our recent ‘On the Fence’ look at the ‘Cool Grey’ Air Jordan 12 suggests Jordanheads are looking toward others from this insanely packed summer full of heat. Among those ‘distracting’ other drops is another of this summer’s AJXII Retros, but not just any old combination of colors. This is one that we’ve been waiting for over fifteen years to see in stores again, so don’t be surprised when the ‘Obsidian’ Air Jordan XII Retro is gone just as soon as it’s resurrected. This June 23rd release is indeed the spot-on OG reproduction we’ve been craving, although the metal eyelets aren’t so much ‘metal’, but a coated plastic. Click through for more shots, let us know where these rank on your list of summer sneaker shopping priorities and cop in over a month in advance from mmehanna on eBay.
Air Jordan XII Retro
Obsidian/White-French Blue-University Blue
I got the playoffs, going to get the cool greys, and thinking about getting these. They say the third time's a charm...haha
They are fresh, but not as great as the playoffs so I just need one pair. Bring the Bred XII's back with leather upper NIKE!
See how SN even throw shots at JB, about the metal tips being coated plastic. Even still what fo you ppl get out of the eyelets being metal over plastic nothing. It cant do anything more spectacular than plastic just get over it.
Alot of you so called sneaker heads are gona flame for this but im feeling the cool grey 12's over these... Yea these are OG blah blah but at the end of the day its about personal opinion and i dont really like this color way.. o yea... FIRST!
It's just another example of what people have saying about JB for years; the price keeps going up while the quality keeps going down and there is something wrong with that. As for what metal can do that plastic generally can't is last. I hope that you don't honestly think that plastic is just as strong and durable as metal is.
If you aSas a real sneakerhead then you would neva refer to those 12's as cool grey......there was only one cool grey and dat was the 11.....everything else is juss grey.....freakin duck....
U must not like da flint 13s or military 4s either. Cuz those 2 shoes have 2 shades of blue also. And alot of people think those are classic
