Air Jordan 12 “French Blue” Release Date,Last year, i.e. in 2016, Jordan Brand went on somewhat of a spree of dropping one Air Jordan release after another, a few of which were returning colorways. One of them was the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue,” which was brought back the very next day after April Fool’s Day last year, on April 2nd, 2016. The sneaker made its comeback in celebration of the Air Jordan 12’s 20th anniversary and the last time it was seen at retail shelves was back in 2004. Despite having returned after twelve years last year, it turns out that Nike.com has restocked the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue.”
The Air Jordan 12 “French Blue” was one of the most popular colorways of the model that sneakerheads were interested in copping back in 2016. However, it is unlikely that anyone was expecting to see the basketball sneaker as baseball cleats, but that actually did happen, although Jordan Brand was not responsible for it. Apparently, Russell Martin was among the sneakerheads who copped the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue.” However, lacing up in his pair as it was, he got in touch with customizer Custom Cleats Inc. and got the sneaker transformed into a baseball cleat. His cleat pair can be seen above.
This is an excellent opportunity for sneakerheads who were still not able to add this sneaker to their collection now that it has joined recent Air Jordan releases 2017 after being restocked. Of course, they will have to head over to Nike.com to grab a pair of the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue” at a price of $190.
More importantly though, this Wednesday, sneakerheads browsing through Nike.com would have been upon noticing the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue” available on the website. Sneakerheads do not have to worry because it is the same version as last year’s, so it will be dressed up in the same distinct color scheme as the original. Its uppers are made up of tumbled leather, predominantly clean-White, but also featuring French Blue-colored overlays over the forefoot and rear portion of each shoe. The French Blue hue also covers its outsoles, while it also has Black-colored branding, Metallic Silver-colored top eyelets, and some Grey-colored detailing.

Max Orange is not exactly an entirely new color. Rather, even Nike has made use of this hue in the past and continues to do so. Even Nike’s latest Air Max Thea LX releases is dressed up in Max Orange. It happens to be a women’s exclusive iteration that has uppers made up of smooth tumbled leather, dressed up predominantly in Max Orange. The collar sections of the sneaker also feature some exotci accents, while even python overlays can be spotted over its rear mudguards. Along with the Max Orange hue covering it, its premium construction instead of the usual mesh uppers tends to set it apart.
In 2017, Jordan Brand plans to drop the Air Jordan 12 Low in a wide range of colorways and the first one will be the one featured here, which has dubbed “Max Orange.” However, it is predominantly a Black-colored sneaker with uppers made up of nubuck, while its mudguards are covered in leather. This colorway gets its nickname from Max Orange-colored accents, namely the “JUMPMAN” spelled out on the sides and the other Jordan branding visible on its heels, outsoles and tongues.
Instead of the regular Air Jordan 12, sneakerheads can expect to see more Air Jordan 12 Low iterations join the Air Jordan releases 2017. This particular Air Jordan 12 Low “Max Orange” is on its way to retailers and arrives on January 14th, 2017, so interested sneakerheads better be prepared to spend $170 to cop a pair.
Air Jordan 12 GS Chinese New Year Release Date,If you’re running a little late on gifts this year, you might want to make up for the lateness by giving a pair of Air Jordan 12 GS Chinese New Year shoes. Set for a January 28th release, having your kids wait for this particular pair of new Jordans might well be worth the effort as the colorways boasts of an excellent shade and design that’s sure to catch everyone’s attention.
To start off, the shoes follow the universally loved Air Jordan 12 silhouette. This form is characterized by the curvaceous vertical lines running from the top to the bottom of the shoes, creating additional planes, texture, and depth to what would have been an ordinary surface. The soles are also unique in that they seem to merge with a portion of the trim.
For the CNY GS release, Nike decided to go with a soft white color with a hint of pink. Images show what appears to be a very slight hue of pink on the white, creating the illusion that you’re seeing something ‘white’ but not really. It’s a tough color to describe, making it one of the more interesting hues today.All in all, the Air Jordan 12 GS Chinese New Year is an excellent buy for kids who are more than eager to show off their presents a little later after Christmas. The kicks will sell for $160 through all Air Jordan stores on the 28th of January, 2017. No need to fret – although the shoes are in celebration of the Chinese New Year, they will be available in other countries – not just China. Better check out this pair as well as other Jordan releases 2017.
The rest of the shoes, however, are a little easier to describe. Red accents can be seen on the edges of the shoes with metallic gold buckles placed at the top for that additional splash of clash. The tongue is kept white in color with Chinese symbols on the center. Want to know what they mean? They’re actually the number “12” in Chinese – which is a great way of incorporating the culture of the holiday they’re celebrating with.
The soles are kept white with what appears to be two different materials used. One while is a little coarser as expected of soles; the other layer is smoother in texture. Flip up the shoes and you’ll find the Jumpman logo in its resplendent red glory. From the back, you can see the number 23 which is done in red. There’s also a little bit of white engraving on the heel portion spelling JORDAN but sadly, not that obvious.
Air Jordan 12 Low “Playoff” Release Date，Many sneakerheads reading this are probably familiar with the classic and highly coveted Air Jordan 12 “Taxi.” Both basketball athletes and sneakerheads quickly grew fond of the sneaker when it had made its original retail debut back in November 1996 because of its basic and simple design. The colorway was dubbed “Taxi” because a Black- and Yellow-colored portion can be spotted on the arch areas and outsoles, which was inspired by taxicabs of New York City. The sneaker also received the retro treatment back in 2008 and 2013. Sneakerheads who already own a pair of the Air Jordan 12 “Taxi” could now pair it with the jersey seen here.
Sneakerheads themselves could pair this jersey with their own Air Jordan 12 “Taxi” and/or “Varsity Red” pairs. However, even if those sneakers are not a part of their collection, this jersey would also go well with the Air Jordan 12 Low “Playoff,” which is scheduled to be among the Jordan releases 2017.
The collaboration between Michael Jordan and Mitchell & Ness continues in style with the return of something that is not footwear but has still been admired by sneakerheads. It is none other than the alternate Black-colored pinstriped Chicago Bulls jersey that Michael Jordan had worn back during the 1996–97 NBA season. Back in the 1990s, a trend had developed to add pinstripes onto basketball uniforms, which is the reason the Bulls iconic alternate jersey featured the Red-colored stripes. The replica seen here from Mitchell & Ness does its best to be almost perfectly identical to the jerseys from back in the 1996 and 1997.
The year 1997 had also marked the 50th anniversary of the NBA, which was when this jersey had been introduced as an alternative to the Red, Blue and White color scheme of the traditional Bulls jerseys. Throughout the 1996–97 NBA season during which this alternate jersey had been worn, Michael Jordan would be frequently wearing the Air Jordan 12 “Taxi” and “Varsity Red.” Thus, it has become one of the most distinguished jerseys in the entire NBA and this replica version is available from the Mitchell & Ness flagship store and the NBA Store at a price of $300.
