Over the past several months, the Jordan OVO XII’s have been a hot topic of conversation. A shoe that seems to get delayed over and over again and has never really had a solid release date, sneakerheads and Drake fanboys (there’s more overlap than you might think) always seem to be discussing when the shoe might be dropping, and what they hope it’ll look like. Well now they don’t have to wonder about the latter anymore.
The first official images of the OVO XII’s (and the shoe’s style number) hit the Web earlier this week, leading to speculation that we’ll see a release sometime in the next few months (the current popular rumor is early 2017).
The shoe is very similar to the first OVO X, and very true to the OVO aesthetic as it features a white leather upper, stingray panels, and gold accents. It’s safe to say that anyone who liked the X’s will love these, as they’re arguably even cleaner.
What do we think about the shoe? We’re fans. We liked the X’s a lot (even though we’re not really that big into white shoes), and even though Drake hasn’t been at his best lately (we all know Views wasn’t really that good), these shoes take us back to Drizzy’s glory days. This is a great pair to stash in your vault until summer when you can break them out and turn heads left and right … and it’ll also be great trade/sell bait if you’re in the market for something else.
We’ll keep you updated with any more OVO XII news and info as it becomes available, but for now, do yourself a favor and go play some old Drizzy. Comeback Season. Thank Me Later. Take Care. You’ll be glad you did.
