The Jordan Brand Flight Forum 2011 was a precise indication of the future of the brand; By combining inspired designs with the latest in technology, Jordan Brand looks to renew the post-Michael Jordan generation as well as the single most anticipated signature sneaker of the year. Here we have a look at a sample of the Air Jordan 2012, set for a February 2012 release; the upper features a seamless, one-piece construction with visible Flywire support that spans the entire shoe, while the midsole adopts a unique scarred detailing. We showed you a sample of the Air Jordan 2012 before, and if you can recall it, you’ll note that the upper has been completely re-tooled with new materials for a more obvious ‘tech’ design. With no other Air Jordan 2011 releases coming our way, it’s time to roll out the red carpet for twenty-seventh installment of the Air Jordan line, and it begins now with this sample preview. Let us know what your thoughts on the Air Jordan 2012 are so far, and be sure to stick with Sneaker News with all the updates you need. via dreamsole.
C'mon Tinker! i can't believe he designed these. You have always thought outside the box but these look so boring. the black shapes look so chunky. the visible flywire looks so cheesy and that enormous jumpman?? at least make it reversed on the left shoe like the good old days!! What happened? the 2011's were headed in the right direction why don't you build off the success with that? instead of just scrapping them completely. SMH
I have one pair from every year unworn in the box, but if this is the real 2012, I'm done collecting. The 2009 and 2010 were very hard for me to justify buying, and for me, the only colorway that saved 2011 was the YOTR. This is the straw that broke the camel's back. I'm no designer, but that midsole and that jumpman on the side are just embarassing to even look at. Thanks for the memories JB.
they look like another cheap pair of team jordans, if you ask me, the 2011s are the best RECENT jordan from the legacy. i used to hate the 2010s but theyre classics compared to these, at least they had something going on, these are way too bland
...JORDAN BRAND has sucessfully DESTROYED M.J.s SNEAKER LEGACY. If the JORDAN label were still a part of NIKE sh*t like this would never even reach the drawing board.It looks like they hired some designers who got fired from AND-1.
They follow stock market trend, from a soaring AJ-2011 to a plummeting AJ-2012. Whatever CWs they slap into these, it will be lame.
Doesn't matter to me if they come up with YOTD (Year of the Dragon-2012) limited edition.
AN EPIC FAIL in design, material...overall look.
Can't wait to see AJ-2013....next.
Why did they take the leather away?!! The first leather sample which somebody requested to take down was a much better quality, classier shoe. I will not be buying this shit, unless they slap that premium leather back on. I bought all of the 2011's and doubles on a few. I'm not retro bias either!
Each numbered air jordan always had something controversial in them, mostly loved, seldomly disliked (AJ2010) but this? This looks really IMO, looks like a redesigned Melo 8, which im not liking much either.
THESE HATING COMMENTS R BECAUSE JB R SUPPOSED TO B THE LEADERS IN SHOE DESIGN NOT FOLLOWER AND WITH THE USING OF FLYWIRE AND HYPERFUSE ON THEIR SHOES R BEING FOLLOWERS....THESE SUCK ASS!!! BRING TINKER BACK!!!!
