The Jordan Brand thought of some new ideas for the iconic Air Jordan Retro 12 (XII) but only to release in big kid sizes. Similar to the black/university blue Air Jordan 12 (XII) that released earlier this year, however, these particular Air Jordan 12 (XII) basketball shoes sport an all black colorway constructed from nubuck and patent leather. Varsity purple and teal accents take the form of the outsole, jump man logo, heel, and border of the tongue. The upper is black nubuck and what appears to be a clear film over black pebble leather on the top cap. Grand purple is used in the mid-sole while the back tab gets a splash of aquamarine. This is a brand new color scheme for the Air Jordan 12 (XII), we can say the Air Jordan 12 (XII) black/grand purple-aquamarine retro basketball shoe is in a class of it's own.
