When it comes to its construction, the Air Jordan 12 Utility “Grind” perfectly blends the redeeming qualities of the model with some updated preferences that fall in line with Nike, Inc.’s efforts towards reducing a carbon footprint. Speaking on the former, this upcoming release sees genuine leather uppers on the quilted area, while a faux snakeskin texture returns to the midsole of the shoes. Adding to that premium effect is a suede mudguard and the signature metallic eyelets that have spelled the success of the ’97 model for nearly two-and-a-half decades (a quick reminder that 2022 is the 25th Anniversary of the Air Jordan 12).

The newer elements to this AJ12 is the use of a ballistic mesh on the tongue for a sportier, more lightweight approach, while Nike Grind – the proprietary recycled rubber – is used on the outsole. According to Jordan Brand, the outsoles of these are made with at least 3% Nike Grind. Doesn’t seem like a whole lot, but enough to not only make use of waste while leaving the rubber traction uncompromised.

The Air Jordan 12 Utility Grind officially releases on August 21st, 2021 in full family sizes; these will be available at Jordan retailers across the nation. Got your eyes on something else?
