First Looks at the Air Jordan 12 “Dark Grey”
Update 09.21.19 // First looks at this December’s “Dark Grey” Air Jordan 12 have surfaced, and as expected, it’s not going to be a retro of the fan-favorite Flint colorway (as if we’d ever get what we want!) — but it is remarkably similar. It rocks a white leather base paired with a lighter shade of grey on the outsole and mudguard and adds in grey liners and heel pulls. Metallic silver hardware has been included at the midfoot, and — for something a little different — zig-zagging stitching rides the Rising Sun-inspired indentations. For release info, see further below.
OG Post 03.28.19 // A ton of rumors have been floating around early this year and late last about the possible return of the “Flint” Air Jordan 12 for late 2019, rumors which have continually been shut down. A retro of the pair would be the first since it’s original release in 2003, so after such a long hiatus you can see why Jordanheads have been screaming for the colorway to drop.
While the rumor has been quashed again this year, we’ve got word via @DJFolk that we will be receiving a White/Grey-Red pair of the Air Jordan 12 in December this year, but it’s highly unlikely it will be a 1 for 1 copy of 2003’s fan-favorite release that shares the same color makeup. That’s not to say that a retro of the Flint colorway is out of the question — but don’t get your hopes up. But we’re not surprised — Jordan Brand has been put in a tight spot with retro releases of non-OG colorways, after a widespread demand for the return of the “Mocha” Air Jordan 3 resulted in a retro release last year that ended up sitting on shelves. That only makes the decision to retro colorways like the “Flint” Jordan 12 all the more difficult to decide upon.
Pairs of this Air Jordan 12 “Dark Grey” have been locked in for a December 21st release, with a list of retailers stocking the drop to follow shortly. To stay in the loop with updates on the drop, be sure to bookmark our Jordan Release Dates Calendar, which will be updated with more information as soon at it becomes available.
