Profile of the Jordan Legacy 312 Low

In 2019, the team-up of the streetwear designer and Chicago’s very own Don C with Jordan Brand resulted in a unique amalgamation of iconic elements from some of the most iconic basketball sneakers of all time.

Jordan Legacy 312 Low design

An homage to Michael Jordan’s legacy and Chicago’s 312 area code, the Air Jordan Legacy 312 Low fuses elements from the Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 3, and Nike Alpha Force Low. This modern mash-up boasts a combination of leather, mesh, and textiles on its upper. A midfoot strap provided us with a secure fit while a visible Nike Air midsole provided us with fantastic cushioning underfoot.

Performance

Cushion. The Jordan Legacy 312 Low is equipped with a Nike Air cushioned midsole. At the heel, we found that the visible Air unit enhances cushioning and we felt that it offers protection against impact.

Traction. Similar to the iconic Air Jordan 3, the Air Jordan Legacy 312 Low features a solid rubber outsole with a circular traction pattern, which we enjoyed on a variety of surfaces as it kept us surefooted AF.

Fit

Length and width. Trying them on, we realized that these Air Jordan basketball sneakers fit a little big. We advise going down half a size for a snug fit. However, if you want a bit more room around your toes, we found that going true to size would be your best bet.

Lockdown. The Air Jordan Legacy 312 Low is equipped with a traditional lace-up closure that provides a customized fit. These Jordan shoes also featured a Nike Alpha Force-inspired midfoot strap that effectively supported and locked us down.

Material

The upper of these Air Jordan basketball sneakers is constructed with a combination of smooth leather, synthetics, and textiles, which we confirmed to enhance durability, comfort, and support. We also love how the high-quality tumbled leather upper also provides a premium look and feel.

Style

Streetwear designer Don C is famous for his luxe take on sportswear. For his latest project with Jordan Brand, he infuses the same high-end aesthetic into iconic models, creating a modern mash-up with a premium look.

The Air Jordan 312 Low is a hybridized silhouette that features the most recognizable elements of the Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 3, and Nike Alpha Force Low. We discovered that these Air Jordan basketball sneakers mimic the ankle collar of the third Air Jordan, as well as its midsole, outsole, large heel tab, and iconic elephant print mudguard.

We found that the toe box, quarter panel, and tongue are all derived from the first Air Jordan. Completing the silhouette is a Nike Alpha Force-inspired midfoot strap. We believe that Don C’s meticulous attention to detail resulted in the assurance that you’ll have one of the most unique sneakers on the block. Additional design elements include the Nike branding on the midfoot strap, the Air Jordan Wings logo on the tongue, and the Jordan Jumpman logo on the heel.
