AIR JORDAN 12 RETRO
To commemorate next week's FIBA World Cup in China, the Jumpman has readied a special retro version of the AJ12 that comes complete with complementing world tour-type accents to mark the occasion.
The International Basketball Association has held the cup every four years since 1950 in an Olympic-like event that brings 32 teams from all over the world to compete. To date, the USA is tied with Yugoslavia for most title wins (with five), and the team will compete against the Czech Republic in the opening round on September 1.
There's no word on whether team USA will be wearing these AJ12's, but the release pays tribute to this worldwide clash of the world titans nonetheless. Starting with an all white tumbled leather upper, the shoe is accented with luxe metallic gold eyelets and matching Jumpman plate, red padded insole and a FIBA print subtly embossed on the mudguard. An embroidered "TWO 3" is stitched into the tongue while a red "23" adorns the heel next to the accompanying tab that reads "Love The Game" in Chinese characters.
