The Air Jordan XII, debuted by Michael Jordan in 1996, has already garnered legendary status on the basketball court. Now, it looks like the AJ XII will hit the football field on the feet of some of the biggest names in the game.

With the unveiling of the Air Jordan XII cleats, Jordan Brand took the opportunity to officially introduce two new members to its football team, Dallas Cowboys’ star receiver Dez Bryant, and defensive back Earl Thomas of the Seattle Seahawks.

Bryant and Thomas will join other Jordan Brand NFL athletes in wearing the latest gridiron boot from the brand. Each player has been given two customized colorways that coincide with their official team colors. As for the shoe’s construction, it features the same iconic overlay as the basketball version, as well as Zoom Air technology.

Check out Hakeem Nicks in his Air Jordan XII cleats during tonight’s Thursday night showdown between the New York Giants and Chicago Bears.
