Air Jordan 12
AJ XII got started with a woman’s fashion shoe from the 19th century called “Nisshoki”.On the Air Jordan 12 there was more than just the women’s high heel for inspiration, but also the Japanese Rising Sun flag played a big role in the making.
The stitching down the sides resemble sun rays. If you look at past Air Jordan sneakers, you will notice the famous “23″ located somewhere on the model. On the Air Jordan 12 Michael wanted a different look with his number 23. So an idea came to Michael Jordan to have 23 written down the tongue, written like this: Two 3.
A lot of good qualities were on the Air Jordan XII, for example they had the Zoom Air unit (also the first Air Jordan to have a Zoom air unit), modified herringbone pattern for improved traction and a more improved carbon fiber shank plate. When the Air Jordan 12 first released in 1996 they sold for $135.00, and five different color ways were released. In 2003 two color ways released selling for $135.00, and a pair of Air Jordan XII cleats released. A couple months later an Air Jordan XII package was sold which came with the Air Jordan XII, hoody and hat which sold for $200 (online only). 2004 was now here and four color ways came out of the Air Jordan XII, which went for $135.00, and three AJ XII lows dropped selling for $115.00. via Sneakerfiles

Bathing Ape (Bape)
Bathing Ape Bape Roadsta Bape Crepes
The brand A Bathing Ape (also called Bape) was established in 1993, but the first sneaker to release was in 2002. Bapes are identical to Nike Air Force 1, but came in a lot more color ways, and different materials.
It is not easy to get your hand on a pair of authentic Bapes. Nigo (founder) only has a few stores that sell A Bathing Apes, (one in the United States). It is also rumored that 100 pairs of each model releases, and when you buy from one of the locations its 1 item per person.
Retro 6 AKA Porche
The retro 6 was also worn during the first NBA Finals, giving the fact that 2014 starts the year of the 6. On the Air Jordan 6 Michael Jordan gave direct orders to have a clean toe, so Tinker Hatfield made sure the Air Jordan VI had a reinforcement around the toe, making the AJ VI the first basketball model to obtain this. MJ had problems putting on the past five models,
so Tinker designed two holes on the top of the tongue, and one loop on the back, calling it “a spoiler”.
