Earlier today, we got our first look at a new chukka from Jordan Brand that draws upon an Air Jordan Legacy model we’ve confirmed for a couple substantial retro releases in 2012. It seems fitting to see more AJXII-inspired fare in ’12, so here’s a first look at the Air Jordan XII Runner. A far cry from the battle-tested if bulky Twelves, this sleek new lowtop keeps the signature sweeping mudguards and appears to have sublimated sunrays to mimick the AJ12’s signature stitching pattern; even the place where its carbon fiber spring plate would rest has been copied. We’ve already seen the XII transmuted into a casually-oriented hybrid via the CMFT series; how do you feel about an Air Jordan XII Runner without full-length Max Air cushioning?

I don't mind them since most runners aren't great looking and I like the style of the 12's.. only thing I see is that it looks pretty thin around the ankle area. I like a little more support when I'm running
I'm usually all about new and exciting models from JB that take inspiration from classics...but these are a FAIL.
