In early 2023, it was confirmed that the Air Jordan 12 “Cherry” would be making a comeback after 14 years since its last release. After being leaked a few months earlier, insiders have revealed that the colorway will be available in full family sizes in November.
Originally released in 1997, the Air Jordan 12 “Cherry” is one of the classic OG colorways that Michael Jordan wore during the 1996-97 season. It was later re-released in 2009, and now it’s making a comeback in 2023 with the same packaging and specifications as its earliest predecessor. The shoe features silver metallic hardware and is dominated by “Varsity Red,” which covers the textured mudguard, midsole, and Jumpman logos. The lining and branded strip along the heel are black, while the tongue and quilted side panel are white.
