Nike just released the official images of the Air Jordan 12 Wings a few hours ago. This new colorway of the Air Jordan 12 will be releasing this upcoming weekend on April 2nd exclusively on the SNKRS app via The Draw from 10am-11am EDT.
We also found out that the upper features a unique quality similar to the Air Jordan 1 Lance Mountain meaning that when the black upper is “wiped, agitated, and rubbed” it will reveal a gold wings print/pattern underneath. However, when the official images first released the retail price was listed as $190. We have now found out that someone at Nike/Jordan Brand made a mistake or they had a change of heart because the new retail price has been spiked up to $225. With the shoe being limited to only 12,000 pairs along with the color changing effects on the upper we can’t say that we’re surprised.
Now that the price has been bumped up $35 does this change your mind about wanting to go after a pair or could you care less? Let us know your thoughts below and head over to our Air Jordan 12 Wings launch page for the latest images, videos and updates.
I knew that $190 price tag was too good to be true. For such a limited shoe with special features to retail for the same price as a general release just didn’t sound right. Now the $225 price tag makes more sense. I was gonna try to buy a pair but now I’m not so sure.
