Retros for days! That’s what we the consumer have been seeing constantly. It also doesn’t help the high price point makes retro products less desirable, however, for some, it’s the name or label that resonates. An old school shoe has gotten some updated flair and Jordan Brand is bringing something different to the table.
The updated Air Jordan 12 Retro features a fully modified upper that utilizes nylon backed by neoprene. The material should wrap nicely on foot. The lateral side still features the leather (synthetic), the usual Phylon midsole, and same rubber outsole. The shoe also features the same full-length Zoom Air loved by many. This particular model resembles the “Friends & Family” pair in collaboration with Public School NYC. Suffice to say, sneakerheads will be lining up for these.
The Air Jordan XII Retro ‘Nylon’ is slated to release on September 10 with a hefty price tag of $190. Do you plan on grabbing a pair? What do you think of the updated upper material? Let us know what you think in the comments.
