For quite a while now, sneakerheads have been clamoring for a retro of the Taxi 12s. And while the Jumpman hasn’t quite delivered, they’re soon to bring a colorway relatively close: the Air Jordan 12 “Royalty.”
The base itself is rather faithful, adopting a black, pebbled toe and a white-dressed, tumbled leather base. Elsewhere, the tongue follows suit, affixed adjacent with the very same gilded speed hooks. But aside from the exchangeable black laces, the changes start with the logos, their neutral color replaced with gold finishings. What’s more, the branded plate along the lower midsole is swapped out as well, matching the regal themes of the aforementioned details.
For a closer look at the release in-hand, see below. These are currently expected to arrive October 9th at Nike SNKRS and the usual retailers.
In other news, the Nike trademarked the Air Jordan 1.
