Air Jordan XII Retro ‘Obsidian’ – Detailed Images
Is there a more perfect date than June 23rd for an Air Jordan Retro release? Coming just after the end of a gruelling school year, a late June drop also signals the end of the NBA season, and for Michael Jordan during 1996-97, that also meant the fifth of six championship rings. Coming up this June on ‘his’ day will be the only one of the five OG Air Jordan XII colorways MJ never wore, the Obsidian and white AJ12 whose French and University Blue accents remind us that tonal designs are timeless, even if the majority of sneaker releases only discovered this in recent years. We’ve been waiting fifteen years for this utterly timeless style to earn a retro release, and with some Korean shops already moving their stock, the June 23rd release date feels even closer. A detailed viewing courtesy of IST below, so take a look, and if you can’t wait the two months, cop ‘em now on eBay.
Air Jordan XII Retro
Obsidian/White-French Blue-University Blue
not a fan of 12s .. my nubucks i only wore like 3 times since the last time they came out ''/ ...i dont like the shape
Playoffs, Grey/orange 12s and obsidians are all a must, I'm a huge fan of 12s. Thank you to everybody who will skip the playoffs to get the obsidians, thank you to everybody who is sleeping on the grey/orange joints and thank you to everybody getting the playoffs and skipping on the obsidians- I got everything covered
pure summertime heat. upset that the cool greys have orange in them. the orange thru the shoe off to me. these are an easy cop.
Some of yall should quit bitchin about who buys and who wears what. Either buy or dont. 95% of the world could care less how you feel.
Most of us got playoffs from 04 not to many have these. Yeah you might see a few walking around in B- grades 97 saying there OG. But OG's sold in the US came from China not Taiwan so there fake. I need two pairs because I cant do another 15 years I'll be too old
Yeah these are super clean! But I don't even want to start thinking about these till I have those playoffs on my feet!!!!! But yes I will be grabbing these!!!!!
these are fresh as fuck ama be coppin these and all other 12s droppin was gunna pass but these are the first time these retro i gotta cop
I can't express the joy I have knowing these are dropping!...the last JB retro I was really really amped about was the Bordeaux 7s, but I remember everybody passing on these for the red and white's when they dropped the same day as og's. Ooohh how the tables have turned...
Classics; But Might Pass Just Cause All These New "Sneakerheads" are gunna cop and they're gunna be on pretty much everyones' feet.
That's why I put em up for a sec n bring em out when everyone destroyed theirs. I love this shoe tho.
i second that not a fan of the cool greys either not that there terrible im just not gonna spend the 170 on them

Can you stfu about sneakernews hyping shit cus obviously you cone on the fking website and click on the link. They post the shoe back to back but you just stated the same comnent in the same post.
Unless people stop over paying individuals for their lack of service, then the hypebeast movememnt will continue. Celebrities are the biggest hypebeasts of all.
well some people log on to SneakerNews in hopes to see sneaker news. some people like seeing detailed images of a sneaker before waiting in line for potentially hours so they can decide whether they like how it looks and most people understand this so they don't complain and whine about "hype" that was never really intended in the first place.
please stop calling shoe collecting a game. A game is when two or more opposing people or groups compete. There is no competition in collecting.
how is it hype? this is a sneaker site so they are going to post pics and articles bout sneakers. if you don't like it then go somewhere else.
I guess you've never been in a line, or had to decide which shoe store to run to, to line up. Or what door of the mall to line up at. It seems to be a huge game with about 250 players per drop these days.
