Air Jordan 12 “25 Years In China” Honors Tinker Hatfield’s Early Design Sketches

China’s relationship with Jordan Brand is celebrating a silver anniversary — a milestone materialized in the form of Air Jordan footwear under the “25 Years In China” collection. Already manifested in an Air Jordan 12 Low, Air Jordan 1 Zoom CMFT, — and even a Zion 2 — Jordan Brand will now pivot back to China’s first taste of the brand, the Air Jordan 12.

Seen here today via official imagery, the pair shows yet another tribute to the first-ever Air Jordan released in China — the OG “Taxi” colorway — which has been a running theme in Asia-exclusive releases. Here, though, it also appears to honor one of Tinker’s early Air Jordan 12 sketches, as the color blocking of this release replicates Tinker’s handiwork pictured on the pair’s special graphic insoles. Like that sketch, the release features a sweeping Taxi Yellow outsole, complete with red tread underfoot. Up top, you’ll see a familiar mix of white and black, with rear pulls and tongue tips again paying tribute to Tinker’s original drawings.

According to sources, the Air Jordan 12 “25 Years In China” will be part of the brand’s November schedule, though a confirmed release date has not yet been set.

With more details to follow, you’ll want to keep your eyes glued to our official Twitter account for further updates. Until then, enjoy a detailed look at the pair here below.
