Another numbered Jordan release enters the arena with Gamma Blue accents, which makes a total of five we’ve seen to date. On the other side of the 3Lab5 drop, we saw the Jordan 1 and its ’95 hybrid borrowing its look from the AJXI, and now that last model’s successor gets a turn. The Air Jordan XII makes its first appearance here with Gamma Blue on the signature asymmetrical mudguards, the rest of its upper and the colorway in general sure to draw comparisons to the ‘Nubuck’ Twelves of 2003 and ’09. These stand apart from the Nubucks with a couple of red hits, and it’ll be interesting to see how that may be incorporated from the rear angle. Stick with Sneaker News for more photos and a release date and let us know where these rank among the slate of upcoming drops that has expanded significantly of late.

Mannnn i'm a 12 fan to the heart so i'll be looking for these. I'd much rather these be just a regular powder blue and remove the red accents, but this'll do.
It would be nice if they made the Jordan jumpman gamma blule on the black lace holder it would really make the shoe pop. Also change the lace tips to gamma blue it would be a nice detail. @nike @nikebasketball @jumpman23
looks like Carmelo's PEs during his Denver days.
Always been a fan of that color way.
Black/Yellow or White/Yellow would be sick too
Replace that nubuck with leather, in my person opinion they should have never started to put nubuck on 12s.
Not bad actually. Da red hits gives it a lil contrast... U definitely gonna see Nate Robinson wearin these in Denver
