Last year, i.e. in 2016, Jordan Brand went on somewhat of a spree of dropping one Air Jordan release after another, a few of which were returning colorways. One of them was the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue,” which was brought back the very next day after April Fool’s Day last year, on April 2nd, 2016. The sneaker made its comeback in celebration of the Air Jordan 12’s 20th anniversary and the last time it was seen at retail shelves was back in 2004. Despite having returned after twelve years last year, it turns out that Nike.com has restocked the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue.”
The Air Jordan 12 “French Blue” was one of the most popular colorways of the model that sneakerheads were interested in copping back in 2016. However, it is unlikely that anyone was expecting to see the basketball sneaker as baseball cleats, but that actually did happen, although Jordan Brand was not responsible for it. Apparently, Russell Martin was among the sneakerheads who copped the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue.” However, lacing up in his pair as it was, he got in touch with customizer Custom Cleats Inc. and got the sneaker transformed into a baseball cleat. His cleat pair can be seen above.
More importantly though, this Wednesday, sneakerheads browsing through Nike.com would have been upon noticing the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue” available on the website. Sneakerheads do not have to worry because it is the same version as last year’s, so it will be dressed up in the same distinct color scheme as the original. Its uppers are made up of tumbled leather, predominantly clean-White, but also featuring French Blue-colored overlays over the forefoot and rear portion of each shoe. The French Blue hue also covers its outsoles, while it also has Black-colored branding, Metallic Silver-colored top eyelets, and some Grey-colored detailing.
This is an excellent opportunity for sneakerheads who were still not able to add this sneaker to their collection now that it has joined recent Air Jordan releases 2017 after being restocked. Of course, they will have to head over to Nike.com to grab a pair of the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue” at a price of $190.
