    Hopefully they keep it like it was originally with the leather and don’t change it like the flu game 12’s

    • Darnell Yancey

      Real talk! “All I need in this life of sin!”

    • Marcus Mccullough

      already have these?like 3 months ago. i wanna see the team jordans the ones tony kukoc wore in the playoffs. now those the ones i want

      • Darnell Yancey

        Word! Those and the Jumpman Pro Quick that Eddie Jones wore, were pretty iconic, to not be an actual numbered Jordan.

        • rfryer87

          Jumpman Pro retros dropped in 09, although they were changed up a bit
          (way to go JB -_-)

        • DugLast

          You’re in luck. Sneaker Files says the Jumpan Pro Quick is dropping again next year.

  • freeballer

  • bjack827

    Man they need the Black and White ones with the Gold tips to rerelease those have always been my fav.? . . . remember when Martin gave tha lil kid them on his christmas show!!!!! #CLASSIC

    • Nasty_nas

      Those are called the “Taxi’s,” and those are my favorite 12’s as well.? Can’t wait to see them re-retro.

  • Zareh

    12’s in 2012, i’m ready

  • ImSo5-0-4!!

    I wish they would release the obsidians before the playoffs like in 97, but I guess I should just be happy they’re coming back and shut the hell up.

  • jordancoppinsincebirth

    both are copped but ive been waiting on the obsidians to drop for the longest. 6th grade i wanted them and they sold out in my size making me settle for the red and white ones that dropped the same day. ill prolly cop 2 pair just because of that moment.

  • Hrbomber1113

    I thought the rumor was the obsidian 12’s and the carolina 11’s were going to be in a pack for 2012?

    • whodi

      That’s what I heard too, but im guessing we’ll get the xmas drop like the last 3 xi’s

      • Anonymous


  • Bennis

    Nice…i still have og’s of each. Beat to a pulp though.
    Pics dont do justice…in person there are very distinct diffrences.

    Cant wait like bart scott.

    • Anonymous

      Bart Scott and his “Can’t Wait” patent can suck it. ?Everyone said can’t wait WAY before he did. ?Just dumb. ?That shit is bullshit (BS) just like his initials.

  • Anonymous

    Favorite pair of 12’s definitely copping

  • Matt78u

    They they releasing all these pairs before 2012 hits cuz they know we all gonna die lmao!


      I hope they drop the Aqua 8’s then

      • kixluva

        Me to, & maybe some playoff 8’s to instead of those wack ass 8.0’s . I think they will though because 2010 we got the 6’s, this year we got 7’s, so it’s only right we get 8’s next year. I’m praying >_< (fingers crossed)

  • Anonymous

    Looks like 2012 is gonna be a expensive year!

  • D3rrtydarun

  • Nver2bg

    why do the prices keep goin up but the quality of the leather keeps goin down?…crap looks like vinyl on the new shoes and the suede looks paper thin

  • Just4Kickz

    Let the sneakerheads say…YEEEEEEES!!!!!! *Michael Jordan On the organ* Lmao

  • Bahamianboi

    Dope will certainly get them

  • Jole Mescudi

    When those obsidians come out I’m a be happy I got my OG’s even more !

  • Mr. I Got’em

    Most definitely!!! I love the ?Obsidian?!! I missed them the last time and I’ve been waiting a long time for these!!

  • JME

    Still have my original ones. They’re in decent shape. Could do for a new pair.

  • Jackson6986

    I am going to get both pair.

  • Shoecoppa101

    Will not cop if suede, passed on the blk/red and will pass on these too if its suede!

  • Azwethinkweiz021

    Hell yeah NICCAAAAAS – hahahahaha!!

  • Imdbledsoe

    Obsidians are a must! But I hope they do SOMETHING to prevent the white from yellowing. . . @ImDBledsoe:disqus?

  • WZA

    Yes the Playoffs are so mine

  • Anonymous

    Hope they don’t yellow
    Hope they are LEATHER
    Hope the build quality is nice
    Hope the shape is true to OG form

    If not, I’m not a sucker to buy those kicks at $10 more for all Jordan/Nikes in 2012. ?Come strong or don’t come at all. ?The Flu Games were just a damn joke, so I hope Nike learned from the sales response on that release.

  • Noradon Dixon *Ceo

    The zoom in the Xii are crazy.

  • Radd

    Both will be on my feet!

  • Robinsonb61
