Overview of Jordan 12 Retro Wings 2016 Sneakers

Inspired by Japan's Rising Sun flag and a woman's 19th-century shoe's high heel (yes, you heard that correctly!), the Tinker Hatfield-designed Air Jordan 12 made its debut in 1996. MJ wanted a comfortable, durable heel that was also stylish, so he took his cue from a woman's shoe profile.

The OG Jordan 12 originated with five colorways in 1996 and 1997. The Air Jordan 12 Retro series was later introduced in 2003 and continues today. From OG colorways like "Taxi" and "Flu Game" to exclusive Retro collabs with OVO and PSNY, Air Jordan 12 sneakers are sought after for their bold silhouette, sharp color combos and long-wearing durability.

Air Jordan 12: History and a Brand New Launch

After the extraordinary success of the Air Jordan 11, Michael Jordan's 12th signature shoe was released in 1996. The official launch of the Jordan Brand occurred the following year, and the Jordan 12s were the last of the line to be sold in a Nike branded box.

Aesthetically, the AJ 12 merged details like stitched leather panels that resembled rays from the sun with a sleek shape based loosely on a 19th-century dress boot. Performance-wise, the Air Jordan 12s retained the revolutionary carbon fiber plate introduced in the Air Jordan 11 and added Nike Zoom Air cushioning - the first Jordan sneaker to do so.

Jordan 12 Retro Wings 2016

On April 2nd, 2016, the Air Jordan 12 Retro Wings made its way to 12,000 stores as a limited release model. The Jordan Retro 12 Wings are designed with a black leather upper that is meant to fade away to reveal a pattern of gold wings across the Japenese-inspired Rising Sun Upper. The Jordan 12 Retro Wings 2016 complement the upper with a mudguard and gold tooling donning the "Wings" branding at the midsole. On the back, the heel strap is designed with the silhouette graphic of Jordan's wingspan featured on the legendary 1989 poster. The upper on these sneakers also feature gold, metallic upper eyelets to top off the luxury aesthetic. The sneaker is also fitted with a full-length Zoom Air unit embedded in a Phylon midsole and herringbone traction on the outsole.
