Don C and Jordan Brand have collaborated once again to bring you the Air Jordan Legacy 312. The first shoe that the two collaborated on was the Air Jordan 2, of which Don C came up with the Arctic Orange and Beach colorways.

The Air Jordan Legacy 312 is a modern shoe with hybrid characteristics. It is a combination of four sneakers: Air Jordan 3, Air Alpha Force Low, Air Jordan 1, and Nike Air Force. The polyurethane midsole carries forefoot and heel Air sole units to provide a responsive ride. To prevent slipping, the solid rubber outsole is designed with the classic Air Jordan 3’s modified traction pattern. Premium tumbled leather composes the upper of the Air Jordan Legacy 312, giving it a high-class feel.

Cushion. The Air Jordan Legacy 312 features a polyurethane midsole. For responsiveness, the shoe comes with a heel Air sole unit and an encapsulated forefoot Air sole unit.

Traction. The traction pattern of the Air Jordan Legacy 312 is a duplicate of that of the Air Jordan 3. It features modified circular and rectangular shapes. It provides smooth court control and a stable grip.

Length and Width. The Air Jordan Legacy 312 is reported to have a good fit. Normal footers can opt for their true Jordan sizing. As for narrow- and wide-footers, they are advised to fit the shoe in the nearest outlet.

Lockdown. The Air Jordan Legacy 312 comes with a standard lace-up system. It allows wearers to achieve their desired fit. The Velcro strap adds lockdown to the forefoot.

The upper of the Air Jordan Legacy 312 is made of premium tumbled leather. The leather is coated with polyurethane for a high-quality look and feel. The forefoot has perforations to give ventilation to the foot.

Because the Air Jordan Legacy 312 is a high-top basketball shoe, stylists recommend that it be worn with a dark monotone slim or skinny jeans to show off the tongue and neat design of the shoe. The getup also looks best when paired with a leather jacket.

Since the Air Jordan Legacy 312 is a collaboration and serves more as a fashion statement than as a performance shoe, a good number of colorways are available for shoppers to choose from.
