This Kids-Sized Air Jordan 12 Is Embellished with 8-Bit Icons
News on this release was first published May 12, 2022.
Update May 13, 2022: A fresh batch of imagery has come through from ,@memorylanebhm showing off the kids-sized Air Jordan 12 'Emoji'! June has been rumoured as the month of release.
Besides their extensive adult-sized Air Jordan lineups, Jordan Brand always make sure to cook up some special makeups for the kids. Sometimes these are simply pint-sized versions of adults' pairs – think the Air Jordan 4 'Military Black' – and other times they're completely new makeups like a just-revealed Air Jordan 12 in white and sky blue.
Shown off by @gc911, this two-tone iteration of Michael Jordan's 12th signature sneaker is officially dubbed 'White/University Blue/Lemon Venom.' Besides its contrasting leather upper, it features 8-bit graphics on its lateral heel, namely a heart, a trophy and what appears to be a potion bottle, and a bold 'Lemon Venom' outsole. There's also an all-over print on the collar lining that includes all the 8-bit images from the heel but also throws hearts, grapes and diamonds into the mix.
At the time of writing, a release date for these special Air Jordan 12s has yet to be announced. More likely than not, however, they'll be dropping in the coming months. Keep it locked here for more info as it's made available!
