2017 ‘Taxi’ Air Jordan 12 Rumored for Holiday Quickstrike Release

Air Jordans 2017 was originally released from 1996-’97. Five colorways were released and they were the first Air Jordan to feature Zoom Air. They were retroed for the first time from 2003-’04. The first run of the Air Jordan 12 Retro also included the first-ever ‘online exclusive’ release for Jordan Brand, the ‘Nubuck’ colorway. They were only available to ‘Team Jordan’ members (registered members of Jumpman23.com/NikeStore.com) who were mailed, yes mailed (not e-mailed) a special URL to go to along with a date and time to purchase the shoe. Needless to say, the site wasn’t prepared for this and the amount of traffic caused nike.com to crash.Bots beat you to the latest retro release?

So if you think a NDC site crash today is big, imagine how it was in 2003 when people still had dial-up modems. By the end of May 2004, ten Air Jordan 12 Retros were released. This included the original black/red colorway (with a leather upper) as well as a ‘French Blue’ edition which changed from its original sample due to MJ being fired by the Wizards after he finished his final season with them.

Three more colorways would release after that, which included the ‘Rising Sun’ edition which was re-called due to its offensive insoles and released a couple months after their original scheduled date. The original black/red colorway returned, only this time with a nubuck upper, inspired by the ‘Flu Game,’ complete with unique details throughout the shoe in honor of MJ’s performance.Moments ago, the Go Ducks Twitter account shared this unique spin on the “Wool” Air Jordan 12, customized with duck tongue patches, designer Tinker Hatfield’s signature on the pull-tab and ‘Go Ducks’ written along the collar.Originally released in 1997, the Air Jordan 12 has come a long way in its 20 years of existence.
