The Air Jordan 12 Utility 'Grind' offers a refreshed take on the legacy silhouette that introduced Zoom Air cushioning to the Jordan franchise. Subtle mottling is applied to the rubber midsole, indicating a mixed composition that includes at least 3% Nike Grind. The upper is constructed from black crumble leather with matching black suede overlays. The 12's signature lizard texture is relegated to the Phylon midsole. Ballistic black mesh is used on the tongue, with a tonal Jumpman icon outlined in red.
