The upcoming Air Jordan 2012 flagship will make a ton of noise once it splashes down in 2012, but does it have what it takes to be deemed a successful follow-up to the Air Jordan 2011 – the ‘comeback’ Air Jordan? On the outer face of the shoe is a wingtip-inspired construction, with perforations lining the upper leather panels, but inside the shoe is a high-tech performance-grade build, with the ‘Fly Over’ cushioning insole and the removable inner bootie. Thus far, we’ve seen just the White/Black version as well as the ‘University Blue’ and the polarizing ‘Year of the Dragon’ edition, but stick with Sneaker News for even more updates and get your Air Jordan XXVII ahead of time by copping this sample from smooth888168 on eBay.
JB needs a new design team. Those 2012 look like some 1950s wing tip shoes. The sock is not original Adidas did it first back in the day. Not feeling all those holes on the shoe. I also agree with a comment made above these do look like some low end Jordan's. Fire the design team & rehire tinker or get the guy who designed new zoom rookie
whats crazy is a week before they drop the same kids on here saying that they are trash will be saying that they copping.ya,ll kill me with this shit.yall did the same thing with the 2011,s..lol and if im lying im flying.these are a step up .the only thing that bothers me is the toe cap.if not for the toe cap they would be perfect.they would actually look like something jordan would make but all in all these are hot.im copping first day.
I would like to see a few more colorways but I'll probably cop. They're obviously not my favorite release ever...but I still like em. The last pic w/ the laces pulled out makes em look a lot better.
the booty looks better than the shoe!! jb should start selling the booty as a house slipper or something like that
I first thought the Air Jordan 2009 was the ugliest pair of Air Jordan's but the 2012's are the worst. I never like when Nike created many different types of Air Jordan's such as Spizike's, 6 Rings, Melo's, all the way to the original Jumpman lineup. I always believed as a true fan the the Air Jordan shoes from I all the way up to 2011 is were they should have stayed. Michael Jordan only wore the main shoes on the court in a white color, a second color-way usually by the All-Star break and the black color in the playoffs. These pair of so called Air Jordan 2012 are the worst design yet. I am not buy these at all. They look like a pair of those low end Air Jordan shoes rather than the premier type seen on Michael`s foot during a game.
I agree.. love the 17s. I actually like the 17-20 line. In fact every single Air Jordan would be nice compared to these.
I agree these are quite hideous , however (with a reluctant sigh) these will undoubtably be great performance shoes. They have the same premise as the kobe 7s but will probably be a little heavier, all in all when these hit the outlets and are reasonably priced at 49.99 (to match the lack of swag) ill probably get them and hoop outdoors on the gravel courts in them immediately lol
I'm sure all Jordan brands lines have to get aproved by him first before the final releases. Most of his clothing lines looks whack too!
Have you guys seen the way Jordan dresses these days! Bad taste in clothes! That guy needs to learn how to dress, and he probably thinks these shoes are hot!
