The theme of flight will forever be associated with Jordan Brand given Mike’s ability to hang in the air throughout the first half of his career. Spike Lee and Michael Jordan got together for some of the most iconic commercials the sneaker industry has ever seen, but perhaps the most infamous Jordan poster of all time is his ‘Wings’ spread that featured MJ’s wingspan and a quote by English poet William Blake. This brand new Air Jordan 12 takes inspiration from that 90s nostalgia trip with a luxe take on what would usually pass for the Playoff 12s. Known as the Air Jordan 12 “Wings”, a premium black leather base sees metallic gold accents hit the eyelets and ‘Wings’ adorned midsole for an added lifestyle touch. You can expect this pair to hit retailers later this April, so check out the best look at this premium AJ12 below and let us know if you plan on picking up the colorway by taking your thoughts to the comments section.
Update: The Air Jordan 12 “Wings” will release on Saturday, April 2nd, 2016.
@blake2007 That style will release via The Draw on 4.2 at 10am ET via SNKRS. Keep an eye out for details.
