OVO x Jordan Retro 12 – While the Jordan Retro 10 with Drake’s OVO crew has been confirmed for release there is still a shroud of mystery around the fate of the collaborative Jordan 12. While both sneakers are coveted by Jordan collectors the 12 is part of Jordan’s championship glory, while the 10 a part of his second return. Similarly the contrast between the two OVO editions are also very different. The 10s use white and gold while the Retro 12 sticks to a stealthy black nubuck base. The sting-ray leather makes its way across the toe while the outsole uses a translucent black. The sneaker is currently limited to Drake’s small group of friends and family, but there is a chance it’ll follow a similar release pattern as the 10.
