The upcoming Air Jordan 2012 flagship has caused quite a stir since detailed images surfaced just weeks ago. The White/Black colorway was scrutinized down to the tiniest of details, and the ‘Year of the Dragon‘ coerced some interesting thoughts from our readers, but what emotions are evoked by this University Blue/Grey colorway? Featuring a tonal upper with suede panels overlaying the glossy Flywire-laden shell, the Air Jordan 2012 ‘University Blue’ transmits that ‘UNC Tar Heel’ message clearly while maintaining that grown-up, graduate appeal. Of course, your opinions matter the most, so drop in your two cents in the comments section below after taking another look at this upcoming Air Jordan release. via aaronknows.

this design is garbage! i just now started rocking jays thnx to the 2011's. after one glance at these i know these will damn sure sit on a shelf. Designer should kill himself

I think that the design is lacking a lil, not enuf creativity i agree. The flywire base is uninspiring. I like lil things aboout it, but what ppl have to realize is that a lot of kids who buy jordans today, dress like they're from the '90s! I was a kid back then, and it was all about african prints (the Air Jordan 7) Patches and colors (Air Jordan 8) etc. Look at how Fresh Prince used to dress, he's a perfect example. Jordans are inspired and designed by the generation that surrounds it, which means, today's generation isn't setting new trends to inspire new designs that you all like. You dress retro and you buy retro jordan all the time, so of course you wont like the new shyt.

And where is the number 23 at? Every "Signature AIR JORDAN" has had a 23 somewhere on the shoe

the best way to get them to start back paying attention to DESIGN, is to definitly NOT COP!!!

What's even worst is the fact that there has been 27 comments posted about this shoe and nobody had the guts/nuts or common decency to check you and your usage of the "N" bomb madness. People will let anybody pass this word around like it isn't nothing. I don't care about your color, so even if you're Black like me, White, Asian or whatever...you should cool down on that word. Grow up.

What's up with the "N" bomb. Even if you're trying to be funny...It's not. The only "N" bomb/Ignorant MF is you and you're definitely NOT hot 2x. You're not shining in 2011 and you're not going to shine in 2012!

I LOVE THE COLORWAY, BUT THE DESIGN IS SH-T.

Awful. This colorway doesn't do this shoe any justice. Take away the grey and add some white. The midsole should be white also.

Too much blue. And the gray is terrible.

I wouldnt pay 30 bucks for these things. The wingtip looking toebox looks aweful. Too much damn flywire as well.

How could you drop a deuce on the university blue colorway like this. You could've atleast put more white in the shoe. I need to get this degree and get on board so I can show these people a lil somethin! ~Terrible~

Jerronimo

Gross, nasty, discusting looking shoes......but the technology behind them.... awesome, epic. JB needs to work on the design..these things are ugly no matter what color you make them.

Bogart

Weak. They could be revised though. Those holes make em look like golf shoes!

Still baboon ass ugly. If you want to cop these but think they cost to much, just wait a few months......hell, wait a few YEARS..... They'll still be on the shelves collecting DUST. I'll laugh in anyone's face I see with ANY colorway of 2012's

The should at least call the team junkman shoe instead of aj 2012. imo

@britters127

These are even worthy of being called a Jordan team shoe let alone be the 2012s!! smh JB yall gotta do better than this!

ShoeHefner

Im speechless. These are by far the most horrid Jordans ever! You spent decades making fashionable basketball shoes and then sit down and create this??? Hell, take a look at the Melo's, the CP3's and the D. Wade's. JB is becoming a big dissapointment. Especially since now, the only way for anyone to take JB seriously is to buy something retro'd from the Nike/Air Jordan line. Get it together, PLEASE!

Ok I'm really trying to like these. 3 colors so far aren't helping. Hoping that maybe in person they are better.

Flywire on an air jordan?? What happen to being original jb?? I remember when others copied you jb. You guys were innovators, coming out with new designs AS WELL as technology. What happened guys?? Ah well, at least sneaker heads will save up their hard earned money when all of these 2012s come out.

WTF? JB HAS GONE MAD!! For crying out loud it's gona be the year of the DRAGON for goodness sake! They should brought straight heat! How hard is it to create a desent looking pair of kicks .....how did they do it for all those years and now just create garbage!!

@sd_fuller

WELL FOR ONE, I CAME TO COMMENT ON THE SHOE, NOT THE IDIOT. IT'S OBVIOUS ALL THEY WANT IS ATTENTION AND YOU SIR SUPPLIED THEIR NEED. JUST IGNORE THE FOOLS. NOW FOR THE SHOE: THE 2011'S GREW ON ME BUT I DON'T SEE THESE DOING THE SAME, AT ALL
