The latest team-up between New Air Jordan Shoes
and October's Very Own, Drake's record label and clothing company, the new XII sports a crisp premium white leather upper. Stingray-style pebbling touches up the leather mudguard, while metallic gold accents and "OVO" branding double down on the high-fashion, almost opulent aesthetic. On the Air Jordan 12, white and gold look absolutely impeccable, with the treasured huge being placed on key detail points of the silhouette (the eyelets, Jumpman logos, and mid-foot TPU lip). There's no question that Jordan Brand is owning the best sneaker release of tomorrow,Cheap Jordans 2017
, Drake is on fire right now and he's showing no signs of cooling off. His relationship with Nike in particular has turned white hot, and the result is yet another scorcher in the form of this white OVO 12. The Air Jordan 12 is a crowd pleasing, fan favorite as is, but Drake's hit-making touch has made the model even hotter. The model is given a white tumbled leather build with a mudguard that feels like stingray leather and golden accents counterbalanced with hits of gum. OVO specific branding land on the outsole and insole for a signature finish. Given that this year celebrates the iconic Air Jordan 12, as we've already seen the new Wings, revived French Blue, remastered Flu Game iteration amongst many others, this particular variation is essentially an extravagant build with stingray leather utilized across the forefoot, alongside premium tumbled leather dominating the entire pristine upper. To finish off its lavish detailing, gold accents are applied on the eyelets, side panels and outsole, in addition to distinctive co-branding.
We got a closer look at Russell Westbrook's New Jordans 2016
Player Exclusive. You might remember them from a few years back when Russ wore them against the Lakers (coincidentally or not, we actually worked with Nike that night on some social media stuff so everybody was watching). The Thunder colors make for an interesting look for sure, but if the Russ connection wasn't there, chances are these would release as a GS sneaker and it wouldn't gain that much traction from the community. As much as I love the Air Jordan 3, I can admit it when the colorways aren't so hot. The only thing preventing the in-game model from becoming a 1:1 copy of the real thing are the eyelets near the toe. They are orange in the real thing but are forced to be yellow in the game because they have to match the Jumpman logo on the tongue.
