Profile of the Jordan Legacy 312 Low

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

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 provides a secure fit while a visible Nike Air midsole provides cushioning underfoot.

Performance

Cushion. The Jordan Legacy 312 Low is equipped with a Nike Air cushioned midsole. At the heel, a visible Air unit enhances cushioning and 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 that offers superior grip on a variety of surfaces.

Fit

Length and Width. These Air Jordan basketball sneakers reportedly fit a little big. Buyers advise going down half a size for a snug fit. However, if you want a bit more room around your toes, going true to size is 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 feature a Nike Alpha Force-inspired midfoot strap for added lockdown and support.

Material

The upper of these Air Jordan basketball sneakers are constructed with a combination of smooth leather, synthetics, and textile for enhanced durability, comfort, and support. 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 to iconic models to create 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. 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. 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.

Don C’s meticulous attention to detail assures 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 at the tongue, and the Jordan Jumpman logo on the heel.
