Sneakerheads probably know that one of the three PSNY x Air Jordan 12 colorways is dubbed “Bordeaux.” It is the Burgundy-colored and it is probably not a coincidence that Bordeaux happens to be the name of wine produced France’s Bordeaux region. Originally, wine does not contain certain secondary flavors that only become evident once the wine has aged for at least 2 to 4 years in the bottle, as a result of which extra layers of complexity are added. A truly good wine has just the right structure,’ which is made up of five basic components, namely acid, ethanol, flavor, sugar and tannins.
To truly enjoy a wine more, none of these basic components should be out of balance and its structure should be perfect. It is hard to bear drinking a poorly structured wine. The aroma coming from a good glass of wine also contributes to your enjoying the wine. So, always slowly swirl the wine in your glass before drinking it, so that its bouquet is revealed, and then breathe it the fragrance. Make sure to never fill a wine glass only half full. Hints of familiar smells such as apples, chocolate, citrus, flowers, plums, vanilla, and wood can be discovered, depending on what type of wine you are drinking.
It cannot be denied, the monochromatic and tonal color scheme of the PSNY x Air Jordan 12 “Bordeaux” does resemble the color of wine, French or otherwise. However, its uppers are actually made up of premium nubuck and as mentioned, they are dressed up in a wine-like Burgundy hue. Of course, since it happens to be a collaborative release so it also features some special branding, such as Public School branding over the insoles and special PSNY tongues. The above photo of the actual sneaker was shared by a user named “zombiejesuz” on NikeTalk.com and rumor has it that only limited pairs of this iteration are going to arrive.
