Dez Bryant and Earl Thomas Officially Join the Jordan Brand Family of Athletes.
The AIR JORDAN XII has always held a special place in the lore of the AIR JORDAN franchise. First debuted by Michael Jordan in 1996, the AIR JORDAN XII features an iconic overlay in contrasting color across the toe and lateral side of the shoe. The AIR JORDAN XII was the first Jordan to feature full-length Zoom Air, a technology that is commonplace in today’s Nike Basketball products.
Now the twelfth shoe in the AIR JORDAN signature line will take the field on Jordan Brand football athletes. Jordan football athlete Hakeem Nicks is expected to wear the AIR JORDANXII cleat in tonight’s game in Chicago. Nicks’ cleat will feature a silver base with the option of a university red or rush blue overlay. All of the Jordan football athletes cleats will be featured in team colors and feature two midsole options.
At the same time, Jordan Brand announced that wide receiver Dez Bryant and defensive back Earl Thomas have officially joined the brand.
“We are excited to add Dez and Earl to the Jordan family,” said Michael Jordan. “Dez and Earl are amazing athletes and both bring a passion and flair to the field that exemplifies the Jordan Brand.”
Bryant, a 6' 2" wide receiver from Galveston, Texas, is in his fourth professional season and is one of the most dynamic athletes in professional football. Bryant has pulled in 29 receptions for 423 yards and six touchdowns in five games this season. Bryant’s AIR JORDAN XII cleats will be a white based shoe and will feature a navy blue overlay on the toe and midsole.
Thomas is a tenacious defensive back in his fourth season as a professional. The hard-hitting safety has recorded 32 tackles, two interceptions and two forced fumbles in five games this season helping lead his team to a 4-1 record. Thomas will have two AIR JORDAN XII’s to choose from both will feature an action green overlay on a solid base of white or navy blue depending on the cleat.
Michael Jordan wore the AIR JORDAN XII during the 1996-97 basketball season including the 1997 championship series. Michael’s performance in game five on the road highlighted the series, which would result in his fifth championship. While suffering a 103-degree temperature, Michael put on a legendary performance by scoring 38 points, grabbing seven rebounds and handing out five assists while wearing the black/varsity red color of the AIR JORDAN XII.
