November 24th, 2003, one of the most important Air Jordan releases in sneaker history.
The black, white and university blue Air Jordan 12 Retro was the first online exclusive released by Jordan Brand. Known as the “Nubuck’s,” they feature an all black nubuck upper with hits of university blue and white found on the tongue, outsole, and back heel pull tab. This all new colorway of the Air Jordan 12 Retro had everyone’s attention as soon as the first images leaked. Everyone was wondering how they would release only to find out that they would not be available in stores.
