This release sees the sneaker forego its traditional all-leather construction for a premium royal blue suede-based build that’s accented with leather overlays. The “Deep Royal Blue” shade covers the majority of the retro sneaker, although there are a few touches of white including the embroidery across the tongue.
This nearly tonal royal blue look has drawn comparisons to Public School’s Air Jordan 12 collaboration from December 2015, which featured an all-gray makeup and similar materials.
Originally released in 1996, the Air Jordan 12 is in the midst of a strong retro campaign this year. It’s been issued in a number of styles, such as a white OVO collaboration, a wool version, and an “Alternate” colorway, just to name a few.
If the Air Jordan 12 “Deep Royal Blue” is on your radar, you’ll have a few options to get them come Saturday. The sneakers, which are priced at $190, will be available exclusively in men’s sizing via Nike SNKRS at 10 a.m. ET. If you aren’t able to score the pair online, they can also be found from select Jordan Brand retailers nationwide.
