Originally released during the 1996-97 NBA season, the Air Jordan XII has a design inspired by the Japan Rising Sun flag. They were first released in five colorways, but since they have been released in array of colorways (and materials), including the upcoming "Chinese New Year" model. Featuring a fresh White, Black, Varsity Red and Light Orewood Brown colorway, with intricate details including a reflective upper, this AJXII is definitely a model to celebrate. Plus, they also feature basket weaving accents on the mudguard, the number "12" in Chinese characters on the tongue, and come packaged in an exclusive box. Look for this limited Chinese New Year-inspired model dropping soon.
