News surfaced the other day that many Korean sneakerheads were planning on boycotting the release of the Rising Sun edition of the Air Jordan XII because they were unhappy with the military implications of the “Rising Sun” flag on the insoles. Apparently, Korean collectors got pretty organized in a hurry, starting a petition and getting various media organizations involved. The noise made by the uprising was enough to force Jordan Brand’s hand into producing an alternate plain White insole for the Asian release of the shoe in an effort to show some sensitivity towards the issue. Keep reading after the jump to see some more pics and to compare the new insole with the original “Rising Sun” version. Via Shoesholic.
