1997, The Air Jordan 12 became Michael Jordan’s 12th signature sneaker in the Air Jordan line. The first Air Jordan 12 commercial that aired, featured MJ crossing over the LA Lakers in slow motion, while rocking the Air Jordan 12 “Taxi”.  How old were you when this Commercial aired?

    • lmao at the i was 2 ^^ SMH and you think your a real sneakerhead…? another 15-20yr old wannabe sneakerhead…im sorry but im just disgusted in these children…they totally destroyed the shoegame with all their hype…lines for GRs….and its funny cause in the old days when the GOAT was actually playing! it wasn't even like this! not all! but alot! of Jordans were hitting the clearance rack…those were the days…the days to be a Sneakerhead…when i say that its cause you were a true sneakerhead…cause no one else was really doing it! thats what made being a sneakerhead so special you were following no one…..now most "acclaimed" sneakerheads are kids being followers…SAD…i see all these kids wearing Js they know nothing about…and they do it not cause they love the shoes…which they think they do…its for what they call "swag"…SMFH i blame the internet hype and the "pop culture" aka these rapper losers…

      • Eat my fucking dick u old fucking fart, trying to live his good old days out, by hatin on teens. GET A LIFE, GET A JOB, AND EAT SKEET!

  1. I was 15… I used to LOVE this commercial! What's ironic is, I was just telling someone about this commercial the other day.

  2. 15! and i'm using these same shoes now (CDP) to school Lebron-wearing "sneakerheads" on the court.. who were only 2 when this aired! say hell yeah if you think you were lucky to watch the Real King MJ23 back in the 90s!

  3. I was 7 yrs old, 3rd grade, from inner city philly… I wished somebody would tell me Im not a sneakerhead.. while my cousins were building their toy collections, i was begging my uncles to take me to the avenue for the next pair of sneakers.. and my love didn't stop at Jordans, I loved OG air raids with the kente cloth design, gary payton gloves, air Ndestrukt, air force 1's, Air More uptempo, AI answer 1, etc. dudes weren't even getting robbed for kicks back then.. dudes were getting took for their polo gear (snow beach,bubble coats,"carlton jackets"), pagers, etc.. i remember when I could go to the outlets and come up on ill shit.. Now dudes are stabbing ppl for foams and concords.. Back in the day foams sat on store shelves for 6-8 mnths at a time.. I GUESS THIS IS WHAT MY PARENTS WERE PREACHING ABOUT WHEN THEY SAY "TIME CHANGES". but i didnt think ppl would move backwards smh

  4. i was four ,,,my first cop i remember falling in love with his commercial and jordan and never turned back since ,,
