Meet the New “Field Purple” Air Jordan 12 Retro

The sneaker game isn’t a sprint – it’s a marathon. Jordan Brand knows this, so they’ve stacked the back half of 2023 with must-have Retro releases to end the year with a win. One of the sneakers set to release this year is the Air Jordan 12 Retro “Field Purple," which is slated to hit shelves this August.

While not directly referenced, the Los Angeles Lakers are no-doubt an inspiration behind this upcoming pair. It features a black tumbled leather upper with “Field Purple” leather mudguards on the lateral and medial sides. The “Field Purple” tone also accents the tongues and heels, while metallic-gold eyestays call to mind the coveted Larry O’Brien trophy.

Moving towards the sole, you’ll come across “Field Purple” midsole and outsole units. The silhouette’s signature carbon-fiber shank plates come in a bright “Taxi” yellow and black scheme, cementing the Lakers theme.

Mark your calendars and set your alarms; the Air Jordan 12 Retro “Field Purple” will release Saturday, August 12th, on and at DTLR stores in full-family sizing.
