In 1996, when the Air Jordan XII (12) was first released, there were no low top models released from the that year when the OG dropped. It wasn't until 2004 when they were offered as a low top retro in obsidian, blue, and white and another in white and black. Now, 7 years later in 2011, we get another low top version of a shoe that used Japan's rising sun as an inspiration for the design on the upper. In this monochromatic offering, there is a suede black upper with alternating perforated and smooth panels, a patent-like material that looks to have a slight composite material pattern, and the famed pebble outsole. There are slight hints of what looks to be varsity red on the tongue's jumpman, the outsole's jumpman (which can be seen in part on the toe), and the outline of the heel tab. No more information is available as far as the release of this low version, so stick with Freshness for more information.
