Whenever Jordan Brand opens up a new brick and mortar location, it makes sure to stock the shop with rare sneakers for eye candy to go along with the retail offerings. The new 306 Yonge store in Toronto, which makes its debut during the 2016 All-Star weekend, is no different.

One of the most exciting pairs spotted there is this alternate take on the "French Blue" Air Jordan 12. The sneaker is a 2004 sample, originally intended to tie in with Michael Jordan's time with the Washington Wizards.

Fans of this shoe should know by now that the regular retail version of the "French Blue" Jordan 12 is coming back this year. Watch for that pair to release on March 26.
