For the first time in five years, you’ll be able to get your hands on the classic ‘Taxi’ Air Jordan 12.
Originally released in November 1996, the ‘Taxi’ 12 was the launch colorway worn by Michael Jordan to start the Bulls’ championship 96-97 season. With a classic commercial to boot, it became one of the most popular shoes in the entire Air Jordan line.
The shoe features a white tumbled leather upper with sun ray-inspired stitching and black textured leather overlays along the sides. Gold works the upper eyelets, while taxi yellow and red share various details on the sole.
These classic Jordan shoes will be released here this Saturday, December 14 for $170 at 8:00 a.m. EST / 7:00 a.m. CST. Follow @Eastbay on Twitter and @OfficialEastbay on Instagram for all release information and updates.
