There is obviously a reason why Michael Jordan has been dubbed the G.O.A.T. because he truly is the greatest athlete to have played the sport of basketball. He was an equally impressive offensive player and perimeter defender. Throughout his career as a member of the Chicago Bulls, he had led his team to six championship victories. However, if basketball can be considered as his first love, then his second love was baseball. It is because of MJ’s former participation in baseball that Jordan Brand has transformed their iconic models into cleats over the years. This time, the Air Jordan 12 is arriving in the form of baseball cleats.
Earlier in 2016, the Air Jordan 9 had received the cleats treatment, designed to be worn on golf courses. More recently, Jordan Brand unveiled Air Jordan 9 cleats variations for its athletes in the NFL. Each Air Jordan 9 cleat rendition was either a mid-top or low-top and dressed up in a color scheme inspired by each player’s respective team. The cleats were also featured a Dynamic Fit inner bootie, personalized branding embroidered onto the tongues, and a single-pull lacing system. Even rookie Jordan Brand athletes from the NFL, namely Corey Coleman and Jalen Ramsey, also received their own PE pair.
However, the Air Jordan 12 baseball cleats have not been whipped up exclusively for any particular MLB athlete or athletes. Rather these Air Jordan 12 baseball cleats could end up being among 2016’s general Jordan releases. Despite having been transformed into baseball cleats, the model still retains its signature profile, with contemporary-looking, carbon fiber and leather uppers that are dressed up entirely in Black. Apparently, these Air Jordan 12 baseball cleats will be available in two different options, one with metal studs and the other with molded studs.
Many of the sneakerheads who cop Air Jordan sneakers happen to be athletes themselves, especially amateur basketball players. While a release date has not yet been announced or confirmed, baseball players will likely be interested grabbing a pair of these all-Black Air Jordan 12 baseball cleats.
