Retro's XII's Still at Retail Collecting Dust Unappreciation vol. Tell'em Why You Mad

Joined Mar 15, 2005
I'm a huge fan of the XII's, but let's face it, they haven't sold well at all, and what's worse is that they're still in the mall and on the web sitting and have yet to receive a price reduction. As much as I don't care for the Flu Games and RS's, I do want a pair of each to play in, but not at retail when I know there are FSR's available months after release.

End rant.

Im in the same boat as you I love them also. I check dang near everyday and hit up my local outlet waiting for them to go on sale! I am watching them closely because I wear a common size 10 as soon as I see them for like eighty bucks or so Im copping the white and red and flue games. I hope I can get 2 pairs for the price of 1 if im lucky

Yea i thought the white/red 12's would've sold out by now because of the good quality and because its a OG colorway but just like the Nubucks, Flu games, and Rising Suns theyre still sitting around. Hopefully i can get a discount later on.

Those Obsidian XII are hot. I saw a guy with them and I had to stop and be schooled on them.

I want the white/reds but there is no way I'm paying retail. Even with the 20% Eastbay discount I still think that's too much for a shoe that is this old.

Good . That mean these will for sure end up at outlet for $79.99 or Nordstrom Rack for $50 around summer time

i copped the white/red XIIs on ebay from a trusted seller...right off the bat with my offer which was $100

i've been walking around different stores in Brooklyn and i'm seeing some spots lowering their prices.It's only a matter of time before all the XIIs get reduced.

Stores are holding out as much as possible to try and get that retail price...but they wont

No 12's are moving in Canada either. I copped the cherry's on employee which was well worth it; quality is on point.

I feel lucky to STILL be debating whether or not I want the Flu Games for bball... I'm digging Ray Allen's black/green 12s, and am hoping that the flu games will kinda sorta eventually somehow maybe start to look like them to me, but it hasn't happened yet. As of today, the Flu Games are not a "must have"... no Jordan I don't already own is actually, including the 2010.

If I see Flu Games in person for around/under $90, I'll buy. Otherwise, I'll keep sitting here looking at them online thinking they look a bit "off" and too pricey for what they are...

Copped the White/Red XII's for $80 and LOVE them for bball!

All of them are made with good quality and comfortable as heck. Im still waiting to cop the Flu Games when they hit lower than 100.

I honestly think that you can find a decent size for around 100 bucks tops! Just gotta look around the web, ebay, NT, etc... I havent looked for a pair yet but I know they are only a click away somewhere...

only reason the white red 12s didnt sell well is cuz of the spacejams release but flu games sold ok

12's don't sell well because of the shape and size. They look like boats on most peoples' feet. Not much of a casual shoe if you ask me. Good for basketball though.
