One of the most coveted Air Jordan sneakers set to drop in 2016 are the Air Jordan 12's dubbed as The Master. The sneaker, which celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Air Jordan 12 silhouette is inspired by a vintage 1997 Jumpman poster from a previous Air Jordan release.

As part of Jordan Brand's upcoming “Poster Collection,” this pair of Air Jordan 12's will be released alongside another Jordan Brand sneaker, the Air Jordan 2. This AJ 12 Master iteration will be made up of three primary colorways -black, white and gold. Featuring a tumbled premium black leather upper, the shoe includes hits of white on the Jordan branding, tongue, midsole and outsole. Metallic Gold accents are featured on the upper eyelets of the silhouette while tonal shoe laces finish off the sneakers overall look. Taking cues from the sepia-tinted Air Jordan poster from '97, this Air Jordan 12 will mark the first time sneakerheads will be able to get their hands on the The Master iteration.

The Air Jordan 12 The Master is set to release on Saturday, Feb. 27, at select Jordan Brand and Nike retailers around the country. This pair of AJ12's will retail for a suggested price of $190 and will be part of Jordan Brand's general releases of 2016.
