Later this year, Jordan Brand will be bringing the Air Jordan 12 “Taxi” out of the vault with a few minor changes that involve a suede toe. 

Previously retro’d in 2013, the Air Jordan 12 “Taxi” was a re-release from the original 2008 retro, which honored the iconic black/white colorway MJ sported during the 1996-1997 season. Now for 2021, Jordan Brand will be revisiting the special colorway with a new addition of suede on the upper. While no leaked images have surfaced, the edition is slated for a White, Black, and Metallic Gold design. The sneaker is expected to arrive in OG form with just one minor but game-changing adjustment of taking the usual AJ12 leather mudguard and swapping it out for smooth luxurious suede material.


The Air Jordan 12 “Suede Toe Taxi” will be dropping this Holiday 2021 season via select Jordan retailers and for the usual AJ12 retail price of $190. Enjoy a mock-up below and make sure to follow JustFreshKicks for updates and more of the latest daily sneaker news from your favorite brands.
