Jordan Brand first introduced the two-tiered box package in January of 2006 when the Defining Moments Package was unveiled to the public. That set-up would soon be the blueprint for a vast collection of package releases that followed, notable the 2008 onslaught of Collezione goodness that offered sneakerheads a two-hit combo of Retro flavor. Earlier this month, Sneaker News showed you images of the Air Jordan 2012 ‘Year Of The Dragon’ box that housed not two, but three compartmentalized tiers – one for the shoes and two others for the interchangeable cushioning units. Technically, the box holds one pair of shoes, but the Air Jordan 2012 truly offers six different combinations of performance comfort thanks to the mid and high-cut removable booties and the Fly Through, Over, and Around cushioning units. Basic math will tell you that you have six options to choose from, all of which are housed in this ornately designed box. The Year Of The Dragon collection is likely to release very soon in conjunction with this upcoming Chinese New Year (falling on Monday, the 23rd), but if you want to get a hold of your pair early, snag one now from id4shoes on eBay.

lol jb doing it big!!! *sarcasm* at those prices you can get two or 3 pair of shoes that's actually worth the money..but i'm disappointed that they did not include the 4 teammates, the ref and a arena lol *sarcasm*
I wouldn't mind getting these for the shear collectability factor. Not an UGLY shoe but it sucks that it takes all this to make me interested in spending money on them.
you guys have to remember this is a performance basketball shoe. lol i like to look at all the retros as old wrestling back when EVERYONE and i mean EVERYONE watched it. now its boring and no one watches it... just like the new jordans they're ugly and boring
Got them 2012 blue & yellow jordans on deck in the shop right now!!! 450$ early release!!! come to my youtube page and i bury puppies and little kitties!!!
I want a pair. But why is the price so high for a shoe not a lot of people like? Resellers get more stupid every day.
