The Jordan XII was released in 1996 and was the first shoe released by the Jordan brand. The Jordan 12 playoffs were first released in 1997. It was the first Air Jordan to feature Zoom Air cushioning. As the name suggests, it was worn in the 1997 NBA playoffs for the Chicago Bull home games and in the 1997 all-star game in Cleveland Ohio.
The shoe draws inspiration from women’s footwear and the Japanese flag.
This latest rendition of the Jordan 12 is very close to the OG. The Jumpman closest to the toe is black and the carbon fiber is very close to the original. The eyelet also more closely resembles the OG.
The XII is made up of a leather and suede upper with a carbon fiber spring plate. The shoe features a herring bone outsole.
The XII features Zoom Air cushioning in the heel and forefoot for impact protection and response.
The XII fits true to size and is very comfortable.
The XII is ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. It provides good traction and durability.
Overall, the XII is a good sneaker that offers good performance and is a great shoe to play basketball in.
