    Similar color scheme as those Friends and Family PSNY Air Jordan 12s that features an all-Black upper that is constructed with a waterproof nylon material, along with Red accents and a White rubber outsole.

    Colorway is dope, the nylon not so much.

    This would have been a dope color way with a leather upper

    If it were leather they'd almost be the playoffs but I wonder if these would be good beaters.

    Good colorway but the nylon on these is not a good look at all. And i think that this nylon material will crease up really ugly with wear. Easy pass on these for me

    Nylon is a good dirt catcher also sun fades rather quickly too.. I'm betting that these will sit..

    I like the idea. But something is telling me "don't do it"

    These are hideous-the color blocking is great but the materials look terrible. Who signs off on this stuff at Jordan Brand?

    It boggles my mind how many bad Jordan Retro+ releases there are.. I'm wondering if Jordan Brand purposely puts out bad retro+ cws so people will fiend for OG cws.

    There are problems with the OG colourways too - horrible shapes, lack of decent sockliners, etc... At least with this retro+ garbage you know you're buying a replica of a shoe, with the OG colourways it's as though you're getting authentic fakes.

    On topic, the XII was not intended to have materials other than the full grain leather. This shoe just looks horrendous.

    Agree with the colour blocking. I will need to decide on the material once in hand.

    Bought them today at Foot Action in Union Square. They look exactly how you think they do. Feel good on feet, light weight. Not universally appealing shoe, but looking forward to wearing in the Fall and Winter.

    Can you ball in them?

    And how did you get them so early?

    Doesn't feel like it would be terrible to ball in, but I wouldn't. Foot Action just had them early at their new JB section. Had to go half size down from the usual because of availability but it fits fine.

    Saw these in person yesterday. Not bad, but I won't drop $190 for them. I'll grab a pair later on discount if they sit like the NYC 10's.

    ...And they don't feel like something you'd want to ball in.
