The Air Jordan 12 first took flight in 1996. Worn by his Airness in '97 along with other Team Jordan athletes, the AJ12 was a performance beast due to its Zoom Air-infused design — the first time the technology was added to an Air Jordan model.
The silhouette began with a humble five colorways that soon became some of the most recognized version of the silhouette to date. "Flu Game"; "White/Varsity Red"; "French Blue"; "Playoffs"; and of course, "Taxi."
The Air Jordan 12 has always been viewed with a sense of luxury thanks to its premium leather upper and metal loopholes that have morphed into canvasses for the brand's greatest creations. Since the first retro run of the AJ12 in 2003-2004, Jordan Brand continues to take the silhouette to new heights with a newfound sense of luxury.
The upcoming Air Jordan 12 "Royalty" carries that very torch that Jordan Brand has instilled on the AJ12 as a slight, yet eloquent, upgrade to the famed "Taxi" colorway is the perfect offering for OG sneaker collectors and the next generation of sneakerheads alike.
