This Air Jordan 12 “Grey/University Blue-White” is one of the many colorways of the twelfth Air Jordan that are scheduled to hit the shelves this year. Since this sneaker is neither an original nor a remastered edition, it is made up of a combination of Grey- and White-colored, split grain leather. The upper of this sneaker is barely ventilated, so the heat and moisture from your feet will help with stretching the leather a bit.
You will find the heel and midfoot lockdown of this Air Jordan 12 quite excellent, and once you have worn the sneaker a few times, you will never have an issue. From heel to toe, the entire all-white soles of this sneaker contains one, continuous, full-length Zoom Air units that feel incredible. Even if you wear them casually, they will feel adequately comfortable, and once you play in them, you will not be able to believe what they are truly capable of doing. This Air Jordan 12 like its recent counterparts has a low profile and responsive cushion. While they might feel clunky at first, you will eventually adjust to wearing them.
The soles have a herringbone pattern beneath them for traction. Since the outsoles have rounded edges, you are advised to plant your feet firmly and push off from the base of this Air Jordan 12 whenever playing basketball laced up in them. The grey tongue, which features a university blue-colored Jumpman logo, contains some mesh but this sneaker is still not well-ventilated. However, this is not exactly a bad thing since it will allow the leather to stretch as much as it needs to in no time. It also happens to be a very robust sneaker because of its excellent combination of arch support, lockdown and overall fit.
If you generally play as a Shooting Guard, then this Air Jordan 12 “Grey/University Blue-White” might not be for you. However, it will exceed your expectations if you are looking for a sneaker that offers excellent traction, high quality materials, incredible cushioning, lots of cushioning, retro style and a snug fit. Of course, if you are really serious about lacing up in this sneaker and rocking it on the court, you will have to wait until its Jordan release takes place on June 25, 2016.
