Just yesterday Sneaker News provided you with detailed images of the Air Jordan 2012, and readers responded by making it one of the most discussed shoes on the Sneaker News comments corner. The yearly Air Jordan flagship is always a great topic to debate because of the trail-blazing legacy the Air Jordan series has left behind, but lackluster designs over the last few years (with the exception of the Air Jordan 2011) has turned a few loyalists away. The first ‘vibe’ you get when letting the AJ2012 sink in is one of ‘luxury’; featuring acutely placed perforations along the borders of the white leather panels, the Air Jordan 2012 captures that classic wing-tip shoe design, but of course, features a hefty amount of new-age tech like the Flywire-stabilized shell, the removable/interchangeable cushioning/bootie, and the new Flight Carbon spring plate. We’ve got a great look at the details of the shoe below, so take a good look and let us know what you think. via long-7.

Melo has swag, cp3 has swag, d wade has swag. & each one of there kicks are straight #2 in the toilet bowl. & they know it.
My comment was deleted...?! Why is it Nike/JB is effectively ruling out people who wear orthotics with their new Jordans and Kobes with interchangeable inner soles?
It looks like they just slapped some random white leather all over aesthetically it looks like it plays no part in support or strength. Jb should have just made the whole shoe fly wire and called it a day these are wack
Why not have a "Future Sole" contest every year to design the Jordan's, I mean if the pros are gonna design shit like this than we need to open up the field.
Can we see them in like a size 9.. I feel like the humongous size 13s they have here are throwing me off in terms of style
i think if they didnt have the toe cap they would look way better but to me they still look ok.i rather buy these than those ugly lebrons
A lot of people forget what Jordans are for, and that's for balling. This look like they were built with a purpose and that's balling. Def cop for my b-ball peps
no wonder JB is putting out so much retro heat next year...gott make up for the loss that these are gonna put on their books
The great thing about buyin the new pair of j's back in the day was that even if you wasn't using em to play ball you can still rock em on a everyday tip...now WHAT THE FUCK HAPPEN TO THAT??...I mean I understand that these are performance ball kicks but the flagship Jordan is supposed to have that extra flavor...needless to say very disappointed
Well JB, you can take the early pics down all you want. The fact remains that this shoe is terrible. Did you think the shoe was going to transform into some fire after a few months of people not seeing it?
And since these r brought up heres where your quality goes to, actual shoes thats meant to do something in. Retros we just walk in or keep'em on ice so if u want quality get these
I wish it was bro, I wish it was........... *face palm and shaking my head* Dis what u giv us for Xmas JB?
