Following the success of the Bordeaux Jordan 12, which was a great hit with fans across the board. Jordan is blessing your feet once again by releasing the new 'Dark Grey' colourway, following the premium aesthetic as the Bordeaux with a soft to the touch suede that encases the heel, extending through to the toebox. Contrasting textiles of the soft suede and the leather panelling makes for an eye-catching look.
"Quality inspired by the greatest player ever" is quoted on the heel and sums up the entirety of the sneaker, this Jordan is crafted to embody the spirit of Jordan and inspire whoever wears these, which is why the build is flawless.
The Dark Grey upper provides a deep tone that is perfect for a lifestyle aesthetic, allowing you to rock these with essentially any outfit that you deem fit. The contrasting Light Grey outsole/midsole. Marvelous touches of Metallic Gold lather the eyelets and atop of the heel pull tab which is a potential throw towards the Retro 'Taxi' colourway. 23 branding is planted on both of the midsoles at the rear in Black to stand out against the lighter Grey.
The design is said to be inspired by the Japanese 'Rising Sun' flag also know as 'Nisshōki', which is why the suede panelling features a subtle sunray style detailing along the flanks. The 12's were also the first of the Air Jordan series to include Zoom Air which shows the innovation and comfort they bring. Not only were they rocked by Jordan, other basketballers including Scottie Pippen replaced his old Max Air's and chose to wear the 12's instead, showing how they can have a great impact on and off the court.
Releasing tomorrow at 08:00 am BST (17/11/17) with limited availability, priced at £165.
