Jordanheads who have managed to recognize what sneaker John Wall appears to be laced up in are probably feeling quite envious of him. Of course, he is one of the best point guards in the NBA presently and he has proven that fact in his previous two games. So, there are definitely plenty of reasons to be envious of the Washington Wizards star. However, this time they have a valid reason because unlike John, sneaker collectors will have to wait a couple of days more in order to get their hands on the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue.”
John Wall has participated in the NBA All-Star thrice. Prior to defeating the Philadelphia 76ers and then the Chicago Bulls, he had scored back-to-back triple doubles in the two games before them. While he was formerly sponsored by adidas, John was clearly rocking the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue” during all these games. Ever since the expiration of his contract with the Three Stripes, the point guard of the Washington Stars has rocked a variety of different kicks from some of the most popular footwear brands of today. In the case of Jordan Brand, he has even worn the Air Jordan 2 and the Air Jordan 3 on the hardwood.
Considering that the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue” has not arrived at retailers yet, it is likely that the Jumpman had a hand in the pair that John was spotted wearing. Unfortunately, Jordan Brand has decided to make sneakerheads wait a little longer. This sneaker was so close to making its way towards retailers, just a few days are left until March 26th, which was its previously announced release date, but it has been postponed.
Now, the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue” will be hitting the shelves on April 2nd, after April Fool’s Day. While the wait is not too long and Jordan Brand likely have their reason for pushing the sneaker’s release forward a bit, it has still added to the anticipation that Jordanheads have probably been feeling.
