After modifying the Air Jordan 4 for the links, Jordan Brand is planning to convert another Air Jordan model into a performance golf shoe next year.
Recent photos shared by Jordan Brand athlete, Pat Perez, on Instagram show a new take on the Air Jordan 12 Low repurposed as a golf sneaker. The colorway is derived from the original “Taxi” Air Jordan 12 from 1996, which is comprised of a white leather upper, contrasting black mudguard, and metallic gold eyelets. Jordan Brand has also remade this colorway in the recently released “Royalty” Air Jordan 12. However, the usual herringbone traction patterned outsole on this pair is upgraded with removable spikes for traction and stability on the course. Also, instead of the traditional back tab message reading “Quality inspired by the greatest player ever,” this new interpretation reads “For the love of 18,” referencing the standard amount of holes on a golf course.
According to @zsneakerheadz, the debut of the Air Jordan 12 Low Golf in the “Taxi” colorway is slated for Feb 25th, 2022. Keep it locked with Sole Collector in the coming weeks for official updates.
UPDATE (02/23): Official Nike product images have emerged of the “Taxi” Air Jordan 12 Golf. Per J23app on Twitter, the golf shoe will now drop on March 11 instead of the initial Feb. 25 release date. A retail price has not been announced.
