In 2011, Jordan Brand embraced the Chinese Zodiac without reservation, featuring the Air Jordan 2011, Air Jordan 2011 Q-Flight, and Air Jordan VII Retro in a gorgeous color palette capturing the traditional Chinese undertones with the Red/Gold colorway. Here we have a look at the Air Jordan 2012 in a new Blue/Yellow colorway, representing the animal in focus for 2012 – the Dragon; it features a two-toned upper of royal and aqua blue with a contrasting bright yellow on the inner lining as well as on the Dragon graphics on the tongue. The Jumpman logos on the tongue and upper are adored in a pure white, as is the solid outsole. We’ve got a detailed gallery awaiting you below so take a good look and let us know what you think, and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for more info on the Air Jordan ‘Year of the Dragon’ release. via air-randyhk.

the 2011 was a nice shoe...these still have potential in my eyes, call my crazy. We gonna have to move on from the retro's...they already running out...and many been done 3 times already...It looks like ppl are moving to Lebrons, Kobes and KD's, etc...but Jordan has to live on as a brand and until ppl can accept these new designs...I dono what the future holds. Tinker IS trying WAYYY too hard...he needs to go back to his simple, classic designs...but @ the same time an artists (which he is) has a style and if he goes "simple" it's jus gonna end up lookin like the same shoe he designed earlier "Oh that looks jus like the 3" or "that's just a wanna-be 11" (like the 2011)...Artists have styles so his "style" is gonna be recognizable no matter what.

Everyone hated on the LBJ IX initially as well but they're flying off the shelves now. Don't be too quick to judge.

The shoe's aint bad really. The three things that don't fit right to me. That leather patch in the middle looks tacked on. Look heavy. As has been said, Jumpman is waaaay too big.

The shoes not THAT ugly. Stare at the first picture... I mean, this is Year of the Dragon, so eventually, this same shoe will be a collectors item. Def not copping though.

JB was always the brand that set the trend. So why the F*ck is there fly wire on the shoe? If you going to push the limits at least do it with some F*CKING originality.

What the fruitcake is up with that over sized jumpman? Scrap these and hire the design team for the KD IV.

I was pretty harsh about this shoe, and these have made me eat my words. These look great but eating humble pie sucks.

The logo on the tounge is crazy, with the dragon around the jumpman....they should take that logo and put it on a different shoe cuz THESE FUCKIN SUCK!!!

I can't believe JB finally put a white outsole on a shoe that doesn't have white in it. It's about time!

There is potential....These are decent, they show off the shoe better than the black and white...Im just about to wait and see.

WTF are those? I'm sure they would charge an arm and a leg because its "year of the dragon". Instead of releasing these they should re-retro the 8s.

@Dizzle2324

This is the only colorway that makes this shoe look decent either way tho shoes sucks

roger that

bottom looks dumb with, should be blue/yellow/white or blue/yellow only

yeah. i agree. tht fly wire has it's own design pattern within the technology, which makes the overall design of the shoe look laxy as hell! i'm mostly unsatisfied that there is nothing new to look at, im already done exploring the new design. gotta c in person for the final verdict tho. peace

I hear you on that. Too many people are concerned about what others like. Do you and make it work. The best thing about the 2012 is that so many dislike, which is what I like. Thant way a million folks won't be wearing the same thing.

The db4 was fire, they didn't look like it on the pic by itself but on feet they are hot
