After taking some heat from officials in China Jordan Brand opted to swap the insoles on the Air Jordan 12 Retro “Rising Sun” which originally used the signature Rising Sun graphics. Jordan Brand quickly rushed out notices to retailers informing them not to release the sneakers on their intended release date and to watch for a shipment of new plain white insoles to swap in. Before all this went down and Jordan Brand made the decision to do this some shops sold their supply early which lead to a good amount of Rising Sun XII’s being sold to consumers with the Rising Sun insoles. When it was announced the insoles would be changed it left many Jordan fans wishing they had copped a pair early online instead of waiting for the official release in their areas or through one of the major distributors like Finishline and Footlocker cause now they would be getting a pair without the Rising Sun insoles.
We are pleased to inform you that you can now get a pair of the Rising Sun insoles on eBay. There are 9 auctions currently listed on eBay for the insoles so if you copped a pair of the Rising Sun’s but didn’t get the Rising Sun insoles make your move quickly and scoop a pair up before they are gone. You won’t regret it.
