During 96-97 season, Nike’s Zoom Air unit made its debut on Air Jordan XII, the first in Jordan Brand collection to use the super lightweight, responsive air unit. With its reinforced forefoot and fan-like stitchings on white leather, inspired by “Nisshoki” or Raising -Sun flag used by the Japanese armed forces. The AJ XII demonstrated as a force to reckon with on the court.
So it is quite appropriate to create a hybrid of a sort from the 2 iconic footwears – Air Jordan XII and Air Force 1. The new creation, named Air Jordan Force Fusion XII, preserved much of Air Jordan XII’s appearance, with the addition of the Nike Swoosh and signature ankle strap found on Air Force 1. Like the previous Air Jordan XII Fusion, the Playoff edition have all the signature hybrid features. With exception that black suede cover most of the upper.
The launch date of Air Jordan Force Fusion XII Playoff is set for March of 2008. However, as always, you can get yours early from our friends at Marquee Sole.
