Air Jordan XII (12): 1996-97

The first AIR JORDANs to utilize Zoom Air Technology for lightweight cushioning and lightning quick responsiveness. MJ wears them as he scores 38 points against the Utah Jazz, including a three pointer in the dying seconds, despite being so ill with the flu he has to be helped off the floor after the game by teammate Scottie Pippen. Using the Japanese rising sun as the inspiration, the Air Jordan XII features flowing lines reminiscent of the sending out its morning rays. The XII released in 1996 and 1997 in five mid-top colorways.
