Jordan Brand is not showing any sign of slowing down entering into 2017; the Jordan 12 have been so far their weapon of choice. Every retro 12 at the exception of the black nylon edition has literally sold out. My routine scouting has landed on another possible new colorway in the making- the Air Jordan 12 Retro Chocolate Brown Gum.
R&B singer-songwriter Anthony Hamilton has a pair of Jordan 12 specially made for him in the same brown and gum colorway. The shoes feature a tumbled leather upper dressed in brown with gum accents on the heel and outsole. Jordan Branding hit the heel ( brown #23) , the back tab and the outside of the tongue ( white Jumpman). Additional details include round black laces, black eyelets and the gum outsole that completes the look of the shoe. I saw the shoes on a foreign website, so they could potentially just be fake; believe it or not, but these grey market websites are usually good indicators on what sneakers JB might be concocting. I know Redskins fans will jump all over these were they to drop.
Unless JB confirms that these Air Jordan 12 Retro Chocolate Brown Gum will release, take everything I have said with a grain of salt; meanwhile enjoy the pictures below and stay tuned for further updates.
