Back in 2015, the Air Jordan 12 was chosen for an unexpected collaboration between Public School and Jordan Brand. Two years prior to that in 2012, Jordan Brand had dropped plenty of other brand new and retro releases of Air Jordan 12. The Air Jordan 11 was undoubtedly a breakthrough model from Jordan Brand, but the Air Jordan 12 did not fail in living up to and even exceeding expectations. For those who do not know, the Air Jordan 12 was the first silhouette to feature Zoom Air. Not much of a surprise that Jordan Brand has whipped up yet another Air Jordan 12 rendition.
This latest colorway of the Air Jordan 12 comes dressed up in Royal Blue, a hue with the hex color code “1E3F9F” and is most notably known for its appearance on the Nike Air Foamposite One from 1996. As the hues name suggests, it does indeed have a connection with royalty since it was created more than 200 years ago for United Kingdom’s Queen Charlotte. Of course, the hue gained tremendous popularity after Nike utilized it and in Spring 1997, it was even used as a hue on one of the Air Jordan 1’s iconic original colorways.
Over the years, just about every well-known footwear brand has added Royal Blue to its color palette. It is obvious that Jordan Brand is not done with its Air Jordan 12 releases of this year. This brand new colorway is now set to join 2016’s upcoming Air Jordan releases. This particular Air Jordan 12 appears to have uppers predominantly made up of suede, while mudguards feature textured leather overlays. Above all, the Royal Blue hue covers the entire sneaker and as of yet, it is uncertain whether this is potentially a premium rendition.
Even if it is not, sneakerheads can expect to have to spend over $190 in order to cop a pair of it. Of course, that will not happen until near the end of the year since this all-Royal Blue Air Jordan 12 will not hit the shelves until some point in November of this year.
