The AJ12 “Indigo” is reminiscent of the Tinker Hatfield-designed OG “Obsidian,” combining a genuine leather “Indigo” blue upper with a white lower-quarter leather trim and other blue components. “Stone Blue” has been used to highlight the laces, sock liner and fabric heel tab, while “Legend Blue” has been used as a detailing color, making the Jumpman logo on the heel and the embroidery on the tongue pop against the leather base.
Elsewhere, Jordan Brand has added matte-finished metal eyelets and has colored the iconic “23” stamp on the heel in “Indigo.” A white sole unit houses the word “Jumpman” near the lateral mid-panel, and also sports “Legend Blue” details on the outsole.
Interestingly, sneaker sources around the Internet are reporting that the uppers will wear away with time to reveal a unique pattern underneath. The Air Jordan 12 “Indigo” is due to drop on August 22 at 3 p.m. EST for $190 USD a pair, and can be picked up on Nike’s website and at select stockists worldwide.
