Iconic Air Jordan 12 ‘Taxi’ Is Coming To The Golf Course
Michael Jordan wore a version of the shoe during his legendary NBA Finals “Flu Game” in 1997.
The latest Air Jordan to shed its high-top and hit the links is a signature silhouette linked to one of MJ’s many awe-inspiring championship performances.
The AJ12 is marked by a single-color leather upper featuring a stitch pattern meant to resemble the Japanese flag’s “Rising Sun” symbol. The faux reptile leather toe guard provides a secondary texture in a different color.
Five colorways were originally available, including the black and red version sported by a sickly-but-unstoppable Jordan during during Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals, aka the “Flu Game.”
There are a couple major differences between the original basketball shoe and the Golf version, namely the addition of spikes to the sole and the transition to a low-top style.
Prices haven’t been announced, but the Air Jordan 12 Low Golf “Taxi” hits Nike’s webstore on Friday, March 11.
