Cross another shoe off your non-retroed Jordans list, as the "Obsidian" Air Jordan 12 (in its true mid-cut form) is heading back to stores this summer. Originally released in February 1997, the shoe sports an obsidian tumbled leather upper, complemented by French Blue accents and white on the mudguard overlays and outsole. A low-cut variation of the shoe was released in 2004, setting the stage for an official return this year.

Two weeks after you pick up your "Military Blue" 4s, the "Obsidian" Air Jordan 12 will arrive at retailers on Saturday, June 23. Retail starts at $160 in men's sizes and runs down to infant.
