With the FIBA World Cup starting at the end of the month, Jordan Brand has been readying special silhouettes inspired by the prestigious international basketball tournament, one of which is this new Air Jordan 12. As this year’s competition takes place in China, these global hoops-inspired sneakers draw from the host country’s signature vibrant colours for their accents.
Pops of regal metallic gold are spread across the top two lace loops/midfoot badge, and bright red is used for detailing on the throat, tongue, and sockliner. All of these accents are then brought together by a crisp white tumbled leather base, which also features a blink-and-you’ll miss it tonal flag print on the mudguard. Gold Chinese characters grace the red heel tab, and an outsole with a black/red carbon fiber midfoot plate completes the elegant-yet-sporty stylings.
