Back in 2009, Jordan Brand had dropped the Air Jordan 1 Retro “Infrared” in Asia. When sneakerheads had headed over to retailers to cop a pair, they had become to astonished to discover that Jordan Brand had apparently altered the colors and materials. A great deal of sneakerheads had actually appreciated the fact that Jordan Brand had done this. Although the predominant hue that this sneaker was supposed to feature had been “Infrared,” but it had been replaced with a different yet similar hue, “Max Orange.” As a part of its upcoming Jordan releases 2017, Jordan Brand is apparently planning to drop an Air Jordan 12 featuring this hue.
For sneakerheads who are wondering, Max Orange happens to be a dark rich orange hue, which can be spotted in the Air Jordan 12 photos accompanying this post. The Air Jordan 1 “Max Orange” also had a Black-colored base, while it was also equipped with plain White midsoles. Furthermore, instead of patent leather, nylon had been utilized for the uppers. Changes such as these had led sneakerheads to feel that this particular Air Jordan 1 iteration resembled the Air Jordan KO. After arriving at retailers in Asia, this colorway had also ended up hitting the shelves in the United States on January 31st, 2009.
Even though the Air Jordan 12 has dominated 2016, there will apparently be plenty of releases next year too, including those of its low-top variation, such as “Max Orange” one featured here. Its uppers are made up of a combination of leather and suede, looking quite ominous since they are covered in Anthracite and Black. Even though this colorway has been nicknamed “Max Orange,” the vibrant hue only makes its appearance on the sides and over the Jumpman branding throughout. This sneaker is also equipped with all-Black rubber outsoles that have carbon fiber accents on top. Based on rumors, this Air Jordan 12 Low “Max Orange” will retail for $170 somewhere in January 2017 at select Jordan Brand and Nike stores.
