Continuing what has been a big year so far for the Jordan retro brand, the Retro 12 “Cool Grey” will drop today, May 19. This release is the second Retro 12 release of the year, after the XII Playoffs, and the first non-original colorway. This XII has a mostly cool grey suede upper with white leather on either side. Team orange accents on the tongue, midsole, and toe give this release just enough of a color pop to deem it worthy of the Jordan Retro line. The grey, orange, and white colorway have some people thinking that this release was inspired after Michael Jordan’s new team, the Charlotte Bobcats. We may never get the answer to that but we do know this is going to be a fantastic release.
The Jordan Retro 12 “Cool Grey” release today, May 19, for $160 at Foot Locker, House of Hoops, and Footlocker.com at 8am EST. They will also be available in kids sizes. Call your local store to find out if they will be carrying the release.
