Air Jordan XII set a new direction for the line in style and technology with a 19th century dress boot inspired design and the series debut of ultra-responsive Zoom Air. Plated lace loops and embossed lizard skin detailing added a little flair to one of the most durable models in the line.

'The Dynasty' continued in the XII, as Michael and the Bulls bested Utah in six games to capture title number five. A signature moment in the series was Game 5, which you may know better as "The Flu Game." Visibly showing the effects of his illness, Michael rang up the Jazz for 38 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 steals and a block in the series-swinging road victory.

Celebrating another iconic sneaker and Day 12 of the XX8 Days of Flight, Jordan Brand introduces the Air Jordan XII in the celebratory black and green colorway.
