The basketball World Championships are less than two weeks away (rejoice!). You know it. We know it. And the fine people at Jordan Brand are certainly aware of the fact as well. That’s why the Jumpman is gearing up to drop a series of special edition sneakers for the most prestigious FIBA tournament there is. Stay tuned to BSTN Chronicles for future releases of the pack!
Kicking things off is a novelty iteration of the popular Air Jordan XII silhouette that pays homage to the tournament’s host country of China. The Jays combine a clean white tumbled leather upper with eye-catching accents of bright red and metallic gold. However, the twelve’s sneaky highlight might very well be the geometric print, visible ever so slightly on the shoe’s mudguard.
The Air Jordan XII FIBA releases at the BSTN online shop and in stores on Saturday, August 24th.
