23 is back and in a very big way! It may have been years since basketball legend as well as hardcourt superstar Michael Jordan hung up his jersey and retired, but his memory is alive and well in hearts of his fans.

Jordan memorabilia is still one of the top selling items in sporting goods stores. Take for example the Air Jordan line of sneakers which Nike has been producing the past years. The Air Jordan line is not just limited to one design, there have been dozens of iterations as well as models which have been released over the years. Sneakerheads and basketball fans are on the lookout for jordan releases 2016 to be sure that they get first dibs on these highly-collected sneakers.
Rapper and celebrity Drake is one of the major fans of the Jordan brand. He has been working on his own designs for the love of his favorite player. Nike had then tied up with Drake in order to come up with a new release of these beloved basketball sneakers.
What is so exciting about Air Jordan 12 OVO? Well, according to fans this is a remake of an original pair that Drake himself wore back in 2014. The 2016 edition, however, was crafted for luxury and style – less of hardcourt advantages but more “pimp my sneaker” traits.
For one, exquisite stingray leather is used across the pair’s forefoot while premium tumbled leather can be seen as the dominant feature of the shoe’s uppers. There will also be gold accents on the shoe’s eyelets, as well as the side panels and the outsole. The Jumpman logo is proudly emblazoned. Of course, the number 23 is visibly seen at the back to make sure that everyone knows that you are sporting an original Air Jordan 12 OVO masterpiece.
The release date is supposedly July 30th, but no definite date has been announced. Nevertheless, fans are expected to line up well ahead of the scheduled date to reserve their pair. The white as well as gold Air Jordan 12 OVO is reported to sell for no less than $160. However, if demand is high, we might see people selling their pairs in the black market or on the web for a much higher price.
