Air Jordan 12
Wondering how good the Air Jordan 12 was? Well, it’s still one of the best Air Jordan Retro models you can play with today. That’s how good it is even by today’s basketball footwear standards! Whether you’re rocking the Flu Games or the Taxis, the J12 is the way to go thanks to its bouncy cushioning.
Fresh off a championship, Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls look to go at another three-peat run. That said, Tinker Hatfield will also play a huge role to create a new basketball shoe for MJ. The Air Jordan 11 is arguably one of the most popular pairs in history, so Tinker vowed to keep the momentum going.
The Air Jordan 12 gets its design inspiration from 19th-century female boots and the Japanese Rising Sun flag called Nisshoki. Its high-top boot-like construction boasts a faux lizard mudguard for a premium finish.
Jordan Brand officially became a separate Nike division when the Air Jordan 12 came out in 1996.
The shoe also debuted Zoom Air technology on an Air Jordan and it’s also one of the best setups of its time. A full-length Zoom Air unit with a carbon fibre plate for torsional support provides a lot of responsiveness and cushioning.
MJ and the Bulls went on to win the NBA championship, their fifth overall and second consecutive Finals victory. The most popular Jordan 12 moment is none other than the Flu Game where MJ dropped 38 points while suffering from food poisoning during Game 6 of the 1997 NBA Finals.
A lot of fans still appreciate the J12 because of its cosy experience due to the full-length Zoom Air technology.
