While the Jordan 1 has had a year to remember, becoming the go-to sneaker for high-profile collaborations and exclusive colorways alike, the Jordan brand hasn’t been slowing down on the other family members. Take the Jordan 12, for example, which stands as one of the most underrated silhouettes in the Jumpman vertical. As if we needed any more proof of the silhouette’s true power, the Jordan 12 Retro “Indigo Blue” — also dubbed the Jordan 12 Retro Stone Blue — drops on August 22nd and you can get your eager hands on it first at StockX.
Since Michael Jordan sported the Jordan 12 in what has been remembered as the ‘Flu Game’, where he battled flu-like symptoms to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 3-2 playoff lead over the Utah Jazz, the silhouette has held a kind of legendary power in the arena of Jumpman styles. This pared-back, stone-blue iteration takes the model back to its basics and we’re loving it. The understated colorway packs a punch and has a heavy retro vibe to it.
The Jordan 12 is arguably the Jordan style with the largest cult following, with die-hard Jumpman collectors positioning it above the collaboration-favorites like the Jordan 1, 3, and 4. With retro-fuelled colorways like the Retro “Stone Blue” still dropping today, it’s not hard to see why. A quick look at StockX market data shows that this pair is selling at an average of $255 with a high-point of $450. You’ll be able to bag a certified-authentic pair from StockX from the moment it drops.
