Jordan Brand‘s Summer 2021 retro collection is rife with tweaked takes on classic styles, one of which is the Air Jordan 12 “Twist.” Offering a crisp white and black color scheme enhanced by vibrant metallic red accents, the “Twist” serves as an elevated homage to the Chicago Bulls‘ white uniforms — and now we’ve been given our most detailed look yet at its construction thanks to Instagram leak account Sneakertigger.
This AJ12’s upper is crafted from both tumbled and pebbled white leather, the former on the collar, heel and forefoot, the latter on the mudguard. Signature stitched lines add texture, and metallic red makes its presence felt on the midfoot badge and top two eyestays. Black is introduced into the mix via the throat’s “TWO 3” spellouts, the tongue’s Jumpman logo, the collar lining and the two-tone heel tab. Down below, midsoles are done up in white with a red Jumpman on the toe bumper for extra flair. Black herringbone outsoles surround a carbon fiber midfoot plate to complete the look.
