Tinker Hatfield pays an incredible amount of detail with his footwear designs, so let’s take a look at some of exciting details of the Air Jordan XII as we gear up for this Saturday’s release of the ‘Playoffs’ colorway. Inspired by the land of the Rising Sun, Tinker placed pronounced grooves on the upper with stitches to create that ‘Rising Sun’ effect. Tinker further stylized the Air Jordan XII, which was also inspired by a 19th century woman’s dress boot, but placed an embossed lizard-skin material at the mudguard, which also spilled to the forefoot portion of the midsole. Additional accents like the silver-plated lace-rings on the upper gave the shoe a bit of a luxurious touch, while the visible carbon fiber plated on the outsole carried on the design function that first arrived with its predecessor – the Air Jordan XI. Finishing off the design was a plethora of Jordan insignia around the shoe, like the Jumpman stamped at the toe and the ’23’ at the ‘bumper’ of the heel. A true beauty to behold is the Air Jordan XII, so take a look at the gallery of these fine details below and let us know if you’ll have the ‘Playoffs’ on your feet this weekend. Photos: us10
