Authentic Shoes – Air Jordan 12 Retro Royalty Taxi
Jordan Brand revisits one of the most popular and recognizable original Air Jordan colorways of all time, but with an added twist that adds a subtle touch of regal luxury. The Air Jordan 12 “Royalty” draws strong comparisons to 1997’s “Taxi” release by keeping with the same white leather upper and faux-lizard textured mudguard. What’s missing is the hit of Taxi Yellow on the heel racing stripe and the exposed carbon fiber plate at the mid-foot, as well as the red Jumpman logo that sits at the toe. While the golden eyelets by the ankle are true to the original, Jordan Brand swaps out the mid-foot piece to a matching gilded plate for further touch on the “Royalty” moniker. Jordan Brand confirms that the shoes will come with an extra set of white laces, OG-style shoebox packaging, and full family sizing. And while the brand hasn’t corroborated just yet, the tentative release date is November 12th, 2021.
