Sneaker history

Help: People love to read about the history of a sneaker. What inspired the design? Was it part of a set? What year did it come out, and in how many colours and style variants? Comment is cool, but facts rule!

Inspired by the land of the Rising Sun, Tinker placed pronounced grooves on the upper with stitches to create that ‘Rising Sun’ effect. Tinker further stylized the Air Jordan XII, which was also inspired by a 19th century woman’s dress boot, but placed an embossed lizard-skin material at the mudguard, which also spilled to the forefoot portion of the midsole. Additional accents like the silver-plated lace-rings on the upper gave the shoe a bit of a luxurious touch, while the visible carbon fiber plated on the outsole carried on the design function that first arrived with its predecessor – the Air Jordan XI. Finishing off the design was a plethora of Jordan insignia around the shoe, like the Jumpman stamped at the toe and the ’23′ at the ‘bumper’ of the heel. A true beauty to behold
