Jordan 12 Field Purple Is a Nod to PEs We Still Dream About!

Jordan 12 Field Purple AIO BotDid you ever wonder what a sneakerhead’s biggest heartbreak is? It’s a freaking PE that never releases to the public. Just like friends and family kicks, these joints never see the light of day… unless you’re F&F, duh. But well, not all of us are this lucky nor have the best sneaker plugs, so we gotta settle for public drops. (Even then we risk taking Ls without a sneaker bot.) Fortunately though, Jordan Brand makes it up for us with releases that are VERY similar to PEs and F&Fs. And the new Jordan 12 Field Purple is exactly that! 

Before the Purple 12s, There Were Gary Payton’s PEs!

Before we talk about the PEs, let’s tell you about Gary Payton, aka the Glove. Gary Payton is a former NBA player who got drafted in 1990 and retired in 2007. Payton was such a good defensive player that he earned his nickname “The Glove”. And during his 2003-2004 season with the Los Angeles Lakers, Payton rocked some hot PE Jordan 12s. The colorways were white and yellow, black and yellow, while the last one was black and purple. All of the kicks featured “The Glove” embroidery on the heel. And to this day, they’re still some of the most impressive PE Jordans worn by an NBA player.

Jordan 12 University GoldNow, in July 2020, Jordan Brand dropped the Jordan 12 University Gold. It featured the same colors as one of Gary Payton’s PEs, minus the embroidery. The kicks retailed for $190, and they’re worth about $268 in resale! You see, the kicks are kinda affordable if you’re looking for something cool to own. But if you don’t wanna pay resale, we gotchu, because Jordan 12 Field Purple is coming soon!

Jordan 12 Field Purple: The Closest We’ll Get to Them PEs

The new Jordan 12 Field Purple will basically feature all the dope details of the 2003 PEs. But you know, we ain’t getting no signature on there. Still, the black leather base and purple lower part of the upper are worth owning. And the golden details of the eyelets certainly make the kicks eye-catchers. You can take a look at them below and be the judge yourself! The kicks will drop on August 19th, 2023 with a price tag of $200. It’ll also be available in full family sizes!
