The Air Jordan 12 Obsidian isn’t a new shoe, but it’s nice to bring back something iconic every once in a while. These looked like the Playoffs, but not really, which gave them their own life amongst consumers. Though these sneakers last released in 2012, and that’s the pair Chris has, they’re still a nice shoe for today’s sneaker scene. Be careful not to mistake them for a more recent release.
