Air Jordan 12
For almost 40 years, Air Jordan has been producing one of the most durable, comfortable, and stylish shoes for any occasion. Its design and quality have always been at a premium level. Jordan's mission is to inspire and enhance athletes' experiences.
The Air Jordan 12 was initially released in a white and black colorway in 1996 by Tinker Hatfield. The Air Jordan 12 model is an improved design of the previous version. This pair of sneakers was the first one to have Zoom Air which allows athletes to race quicker because of the compressed fibers that get the feet off the ground faster. The Air Jordan 12 also has a carbon shank plate. Overall, this pair of sneakers are extremely durable.
This design of Air Jordan 12 was inspired by the Japanese 'Rising Sun' flag. It is shown in bold red color on the bottom and stitches that represent the sun's rays. This Air Jordan 12 design is one of a kind that stands out the most due to its colors. Later, in 2003, MJ released new designs of the Air Jordan 12 with various colors and slightly different materials - a retro edition.
The Air Jordan 12 shoes were the first one to be released separately from Nike and solely under MJ's brand. That is why there is no 'Swoosh' logo visible on it. Although, it remains a subsidiary of Nike.
Lastly, Michael Jordan had a legendary performance with the Air Jordan 12 Retro shoes. In 1997, playing against the Utah Jazz in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, Jordan has scored 38 points despite having a fever of 103°F. Jordan led his team, Chicago Bulls, to the victory, claiming yet another title.
