AIR JORDAN 12 "TAXI" 130690-125
Is there a need to remind about the “Flu Game” that was a breaking point in series versus Utah Jazz in 1997? If there is one, then the reason for it are the shoes that MJ put his body to the absolute limits in. The famous XII, obviously. As the Jordan Brand says “The Dynasty continues”, there is an continuation to the great XII. The looks are basically the same, when compared to the original 1997 release, which is a good thing, it reminds a lot of the Utah Jazz series. The difference is that the Jumpman logo on the outsole is red, rather than black. The lace loops in the Retro edition are silver, unlike the original ones that were golden. There is a slight variation in the technology. The outsole pattern is “V” shaped to provide better traction. Also, the outsole features carbon fiber. It improves the shoe’s stability and rigidity. The upper part of the shoe consists of black and white leather, with asymmetric stitching. Whole construction is durable, and comfortable due to Nike Zoom cushioning unit, that also reduces pressure put on knees and ankles to prevent injuries. For players and fans that remember the 1997 NBA finals, every release of the famous “XII” is some sort of a reminder, that says if you put enough effort and combine it with a strong will, there is no obstacle that you cannot blow away on your way to your goals.
