Air Jordan 12 Royalty Review

The Air Jordan 12 Royalty looks like a very well-known colorway, but just isn’t it. That doesn’t mean it’s a bad look though. Jordan Brand tweaked things just enough for it to have a life of its own, while also giving off that classic Taxi look. The Air Jordan 12 Taxi resells for quite a sum of money. If you’re looking for that look and feel but don’t want to pay a high price, this is a good option, and one of the better retros of the year. Your wallet won’t cry as much.
