The Air Jordan 12 is not necessarily the most beloved Jordan model. Nevertheless, they tend to make an appearance on release calendars every year, to many fans’ enjoyment. Check out the “Chinese New Year” look, dropping in January.


The Air Jordan 12 has always been an interesting shoe. With its clean construction and premium materials, many sneakerheads have always gravitated towards the high-top silhouette. This year, the Jordan 12 made a variety of appearances on retail shelves, including retro releases like the “Taxi” makeup, and also a few new ones, like the Japanese-inspired “International Flight” colorway. Now, Jordan Brand is planning on using the 12 to help bring in the new year, with a special “Chinese New Year” colorway. The upper of this pair appears to be made from a smooth velvet and dyed all in black. The protective toe guard comes in white with a gold accent for the Jumpman branding on the sides. Gold also adorns the upper lace eyelets, rounding out the CNY theme. Finally, the inner lining of these Air Jordan 12s features a colorful red-based pattern to complete the look.
