Built by Don C, the Jordan Legacy 312 Low has a storied heritage that often celebrates Chicago’s rich basketball and street culture through a variety of vibrant colorways. Once designated as Chicago’s Don C’s signature lifestyle shoe, the Jordan Legacy 312 and its low-top remain one of Jordan Brand’s mainstay off-court footwear options.
The upper features White leather as the main base layer. Different shades of gray appear on many details of the upper. The swoosh and outsole use the same level of gray, echoing each other. A light gray tongue matches the label. White laces appear on the tongue as a finishing touch. Another shade of gray appears on the elephant print on the heel. Soft seafoam green appears on the upper’s overlays and breathable mesh lining as the second main color of the upper. The upper is decorated with seafoam green Velcro with a gray NIKE logo.
While smooth white leather serves as a neutral canvas, sea foam green toe box, mudguard, and forefoot straps subtly inject color, creating an appealing and unexpected contrast. Gray Swoosh overlays and heel paint add extra layers to the overall design, keeping it sophisticated without looking overwhelming. A sail-colored midsole and gray outsole heel complete the upper. The visible translucent shock-absorbing AIR device is located at the heel, providing a reliable cushioning effect for the shoe.
