Originally released more than 17 years ago, the “Taxi” Air Jordan XII was first reissued back in 2008 as part of the Jordan Brand’s Countdown Pack colllection. Now returning for the second time to help close out 2013, the ‘Taxi’ Air Jordan XII returns in true form with a tumbled leather build, metallic gold Jumpman-branded eyelets and a bold leather mudguard in black to finish off one of the most beautifully color-blocked Air Jordans ever. A true classic is back. The Air Jordan 12 Retro “Taxi” returns in its original colorway, launched in the season of MJ’s fifth championship (’96-’97). It features a white, tumbled-leather upper with stitching that mimics the rays of the rising sun. Taxi gold pops on the lace stays and black leather finishes the upper. A touch of Varsity Red peeks through the solid black outsole and the “23” on the heel strip.
