Upon revealing the Air Jordan 2012 Deluxe ‘YOTD’ release date earlier today, we noted that we won’t be getting a sequel to the Chinese New Year-themed AJ2011 Q Flight because it’s built right in to the multiple ‘Flight’ package. But that doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to select the flight of your choosing this year, because in addition to the Deluxe model, Tinker Hatfield and Tom Luedecke also designed their modular system to be broken into its individual components. The Air Jordan 2012 A comes with a sleeker low-cut sleeve and packs the ‘Fly Over’ midsole with Zoom Air cushioning in the forefoot plus encapsulated Air in the heels. That one’s coming up in white/black, while the also-low-cut Air Jordan 2012 Q, whose Zoom-heeled ‘Fly Around’ cushioning is available with Old Royal or Varsity Red booties and laces. The same color options are also up for grabs with the higher cut Air Jordan 2012 E, the model offering a full-length encapsulated Air cushion to help you ‘Fly Through’ your opponents. Jordan Brand will drop all five of the A, E and Q offerings on Saturday, February 25th, so with all the options available, which will you choose?
Air Jordan 2012 A
Just brought me a pair. They r ridiculously comfortable and with all that comes with them. They r well worth it. But I would have brought them anyway!!!!
These are super tight. Jordan's done it again.old school look. With needful twist. Love the choices. Like have multiple shoes@ 1nz. Jordan always thinking outside the box. The price fair when u think of all you get. People hate what's new. These just took Jay's next legal. Soon like always other brands will jump on wagon n copy...Jay's. Old school needful all school.. voice u can't. Afford that's. OK. Hating flies u can't. Ain't.. real talk son
These Kicks are just wayyyyyy too overpriced!! smh they are all the same shoe just with different laces and Sockliners!!!!!!! smh YOTD maybe but overall,i'll def pass!!!
the haters clearly hype beasts who don't play ball at all~ them shoes r for performance, period. the look of them are decent for impression, but obviously can be growing when you look at them more. i just can't wait to test out the whole system! must be outstanding on performance
please ya'll line up to pay $160 for some 20 plus year old technology and don't have another $20-$60 on state of the art tech and cushioning options? I get some don't like the aesthetics, or shape of the shoe, but you can't complain about price while at the same time camping for $175 11's...just sayin.
i rather wear the cushioning then the sneaker they look better then the shoe smh, and for $180 i dont see retro no where in this release, so they might want to drop that price to $110, these jordans is one gift i wouldnt take
Everybody run, the haters are out. Don't matter what this thing looks like, none ya'll be happy unless they just keep selling 11s for the next 100 years.
thats black/white colorway with the mixed bootie and lace colors kind of give the shoe more personality. i mean we gotta really think about this...the purpose of the shoe is clearly performance and i think the tech here is a big step forward. and there are way worse looking jordans out there.
i dont think its that bad i like how the black/white n red colorway looks but would i ever buy a pair no
I'll be the first one to admit that I like these jordans for some reason i believe that with the right pair of jeans these would be undeniable.The sole has kinda the same profile as a pair of foams and the dress shoe look, makes them very distinct Did a pair on nike id and im gonna cop jus because i like what i came up with
No! I never thought I'd ever say this but, JB please bring back Gentry Humphrey!!!!! The 2012 is atrocious!
