With 2011’s ‘Year of the Rabbit’ release being the first one out of the gate for the Jordan legacy series and now the Air Jordan 2012’s inaugural look being a zodiac themed one as well, should we be on the look out for the Air Jordan 2013 ‘Year of the Snake’ this time next year? It may be a bit too far out to start making predictions, so for the time being let’s focus on the sneakers at hand. Coming in some of the wildest packaging we’ve seen for a sneaker release, the Air Jordan 2012 YOTD really goes the extra mile with all of the included goodies, swappable insoles, removeable booties etc. Hit the jump to get familiar with this upcoming release and stick with Sneaker News to get word on when they drop. via Kenlu

I love the tech put into the shoe but it's still UGLY. We all know Jordan Brand does not care about the retros. People will buy them regardless of price or material...just sayin...

I liked it when Nike was playing catch up to Jordan, not now how Jordan is copying and playing catch up to Nike...

It's funny how when the shoe was first premiered with detailed pics everyone was like HORRIBLE..TRASH...WHACK...etc...now its "hmm i think i like these" and " these are growing on me" smh the sneakergame is corrupted with nothing but followers now

the only problem I had with this shoes is the material. if the blue was some kind of nubuck, or 3m, it would be so much better

@23Redman....you're way off base. I collect retro (not just because im used to old styles) as well as OG's. One thing that can be said about a retro that can't be said about an OG 2012 is they look great. I give them all the props in the world for quality and innovation. Aesthetically though, 2012's look like fresh hot steamy cow sh*t. You mean to tell me that with all the time and detail put in to the quality and tech of this shoe that you couldn't make it more soothing on the eye? MOST people who purchase J's don't do so to ball in, but for casual wear. Even just to resale or collect. There will always be an exception. With that being said, the shoe is STILL ugly as F*CK.......PERIOD. To each his own.

I didn't like these at first when I saw the first pics, but then I saw this colorway and it had me sold! I can't wait to see what other colorways this shoe will come in!!

not feeling the shoe in general but the whole interchangeable bootie and insoles seems to be the future of athletic shoes. sure to improve sales if you can market a shoe that can serve more than one type of athelete.

From a collectors point of view, this shoe just keeps pulling aat me. I love everything about it except the colorway, which is still growing on me. I will try and cop these rather than regret it later.

I'm still standing behind my word, and that is this is a dope model. It doesn't have to be retro to be a "cop"

@23Redman

Honestly if you are from people who do not like these new sneaker is because they're used to the old shit every time they cost more and the materials are not perfect quality like we should get some of the best athletic shoe company. Air Jordan 2012 = Best Innovate Sneaker of The Year!

Well, they don't. Their focusing more on newer things.

I'm from the old school, i love a lot of new designs. theses on the other hand are hideous. does not matter what color way. i will say they are hotter than the 2011's but that does not say much.

It looks like they took Kobe's sneaker and Lebron's sneaker, mated them, and stuck on a Jordan logo

I like the high strap thing and there are aspects of it that are innovative....I just don't like the appearance on the outer side of the shoe. The inner side and front views are ok. But the side with the jump man logo is flawed. The 2011 was overrated in performance......
