The list of Air Jordans that have yet to receive the retro treatment is a short one, and you can scratch off another original this June when the "Obsidian" Air Jordan 12 makes its first return to retail. Originally released in February of 1997, this classic features an obsidian tumbled leather upper with white laces and textured leather mudguard overlays. French Blue lines the interior, while University Blue is used for embroidery on the tongue and additional details on the heel. Finishing off the look below is a predominantly white outsole with obsidian tread.
After a 15-year hiatus, the "Obsidian" 12 will return to stores in its true mid-cut form on Saturday, June 23. Retail will be $160.
