Old is new again with the Air Jordan 12 Retro ‘Black Concord’

When a product as iconic as a Jordan sneaker has such a long lifespan, it’s difficult to write something new about it.

But that’s also the beauty of the Jumpman’s signature shoe line: the consistency and familiarity of the sneaker brings us back to the first time we saw it, whether it was on our feet or on Michael Jordan’s during one fabled playoff run or another.

The Air Jordan 12 is one of those shoes.

We all know the design origins. Tinker Hatfield took inspiration from the Japanese “rising sun” motif for the lateral stitching, and from a high-heeled women’s fashion shoe, added faux-lizard print to the mudguard.

We all know the basketball heritage. MJ battled through food poisoning and played the infamous “Flu Game” during the NBA Finals against Utah in 1997 wearing a black-and-red version of the AJ12.

The year 2020 has seen this silhouette released in ‘Indigo’ and ‘University Gold’ livery. Now, with fall and winter wardrobes in mins, Jordan Brand is unveiling a new take on a classic brand colorway.

The Air Jordan 12 Retro ‘Black Concord’ combines black suede and leather in the upper, with metallic hits of the namesake Concord purple at the lace eyelets, heel tab and Jumpman badging.

Cop yourself a classic colorway in a new form when the Air Jordan 12 Retro ‘Black Concord’ releases on 10/23 at jdsports.com and in select stores via product drawing.

*Grade School sizing will be available in-store only.
