Jordan is right to add a moniker like “Royalty” to their latest Air Jordan 12 release. Since they stepped onto the scene, the brand has been precisely that and hasn’t relinquished its crown yet.
This latest colorway might remind you of a famous ‘97 edition, the “Taxi.” Jordan has opted to swap out the bright yellow racing stripe and more graphic Jumpman for a more regal look with the gilded plate across the mid-foot piece and top eyelets.
The white leather upper and the faux-lizard textured mudguard are the iconic carryovers from the OG, but these sneakers benefit from some shiny new bells and whistles.
Jordan knows how to release a product with an extra set of white laces and packaging in an OG-style shoebox. By looking back at its own legacy for inspiration and having the creativity and drive to integrate new and exciting details, Jordan proves time and time again why they are the King within the sneaker world.
Available in full family sizing, the Air Jordan 12 “Royalty” drops 11.13 at 10 am ET.
