For Jordan, 2020 marks the revival of quite a few noteworthy icons — be it the Air Jordan 5 Fire Red or the long-awaited DMP Air Jordan 6. But in terms of the brand new, the Air Jordan 12 has unfortunately been excluded, sitting behind tie dye Air Jordan 1s and a clean duo of Air Jordan 11 Lows. And though its latest was left out of the brand’s Summer 2020 preview, the 12 will actually be making its first debut of the year in July, marking bright with accents of University Gold. Its color blocking, much like that of its predecessors, arrives simple with only two tones; aside from the aforementioned, the upper runs replete with black shades, tinting down its pebbled leathers as well as its adjacent details — eye stay hardware, laces, and lining, for example. Forward, the toe cap embellishes with smooth panels whose neighboring overlays, midsole pieces, and toolings match with the same titular yellow. Revealed via @zsneakerheadz, the pair can be seen close-up just below. Be sure to sit tight for its release at Nike.com and select shops later in July 18th.
