The best looking 12s are the White/red "Japan" 12. I wish Nike/Jordan Brand never missed with the overall shape of the shoe. The Japan 12 is the Js that got me into collecting Js.

12/12/12 – it’s a fortuitous alignment of month, day, and year that falls on our laps just once a year, and considering we won’t see that abbreviated date for another century, we might as well take the cue and feature the most iconic “12” sneaker in history – the Air Jordan XII. This Tinker Hatfield design was unveiled in the ’96-’97 NBA Season, worn by Michael Jordan in four different colorways – the “Taxi”, “Flu Game”, “Playoffs”, and the White/Red – and in all those shoes, MJ has pulled of some amazing feats of excellence.
Most of Michael’s iconic moments in the Air Jordan XII aren’t mysteries by now: the Flu Game, during which MJ poured in 38 points while terribly ill, the understated Triple-Double at the All-Star Game, the 55-point outburst against the young Bullets in the Playoffs – the list is pretty much endless. We’ve compiled a nice gallery of Michael Jordan in the Air Jordan XII, so enjoy this XII feature on 12/12/12 and let us know what your favorite Air Jordan XII moment in the comments below.
