This 2106 rendition stays true to the original and is crafted with a white leather upper, metallic accents, mesh tongue, and "NIKE AIR" tongue tag.

Using two main themes as inspiration, jazz music and luxury, they are crafted with a soft white leather upper, feature crocodile skin-embossed leather accents on the heel/tongue, and are complimented by "copper" on the heel and lace loops.

They are also widely known for their comfort, ankle support, and since the AJXII is the first Air Jordan model with Zoom Air technology, superior cushioning.
