As further reveals are beginning to confirm, Holiday 2021 marks an observable shift for Jordan Brand’s series of Retros. Rather than bring back the classics in true-to-original form, the Jumpman has opted to tweak them very subtly. For example, this upcoming Air Jordan 12 borrows the iconic “Taxi” colorway and gives it a slight makeover.
Though at a glance it may seem identical to its predecessor, this pair is said to provide a number of sizable changes, the most discernable of which being the mudguard. While it’s typically dressed in leather snakeskin, the latter is now subverting expectation with a blacked out, premium suede. Adjacent, the quilted side panels and tongue stick to a white leather, their tumbling framed by darker linings, midsoles, and the usual heel counter detailing. What’s more, it’s said that these will feature a substantial amount of “Metallic Gold” — the branded tab at the lower profile, the eyelets, and the Jumpman embroidery to name a few.
For a look at what to expect, see the mock-up above. These are currently expected to release in a full family size run some time during the Holiday 2021 season.
In other news, the Jordan 3 Pine Green is going to release around the same time.
The Air Jordan 12 “Taxi” is due to release on October 9th.
