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 in white leather and fan-like stitchings on black suede, 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 (12) and Air Force 1 (One). 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 plus traditional Nike Air sole found on Air Force 1. Like other Air Jordan XII Fusion, this edition has all the signature hybrid features. The updated colorways of Black/Varsity Red-White-Metallic Silver is currently available at NikeStore.com.
Color: Black/Varsity Red-White-Metallic Silver
