With releases such as "Wool" on the horizon, it's been confirmed that Jordan Brand will explore the use of different materials on the Air Jordan 12 this year. Previously unannounced is this pair in black nylon, which sample owners say is actually waterproof.

Similar to Public School's friends and family colorway, the shoe features an all-black upper, offset by a white outsole. The jacket-like material is visible in this teaser shot, as are smoother leather overlays.

While we await more information, the release date has been confirmed for Saturday, September 10. Hit the follow button for updates we approach the drop.
