The Air Jordan 12 ‘Taxi’ Becomes ‘Royalty’Release: 13 November 2021
When it comes to the Jordan lineup, it’s safe to say the Air Jordan 12 takes a back seat to earlier models. Having said that, there are a few colourways that hold a place in sneaker lore – the ‘Taxi’ is one such scheme. Now the legendary white/black combo is returning – with added gold – under the moniker ‘Royalty’.
Rumoured to be part of Jordan Brand’s 2021 Holiday lineup, the ‘Royalty’ sees the baller return with a tumbled leather white upper and textured black mudguard. The 2021 release will differ from the legendary ‘Taxi’, however, adding to the classic gold eyelets with a guilt mudguard, as well as tongue and heel details. It’s a nice tweak, adding enough to make these feel new, without alienating OG fans.
The 12 may not drum up hype like an Air Jordan 1 or 4, but with colourways like this, its fan base will only grow. If you’re part of that fan base, you can look for these to drop on October 9.
