The Air Jordan 12 was the height of art and design, and then their marriage. In turn, they took the Air Jordan series to a new height.
The journey of the Jordan 12 is a journey of height of art, to height of design, to height of the Air Jordan series itself.
The Air Jordan 12 got its inspiration from two sources: The Japanese flag and a women’s shoe-design from the 19th century (named “Nisshoki”). From the Japanese Rising Sun flag, it borrowed the sun rays and put on the Air Jordan 12.
See the stitching down the sides of AJ12? It purposefully resembles the sun rays.
Where did the high heels come from? Simple, from Nisshoki.
