Just yesterday Sneaker News was overwhelmed by the grand launch of the Air Jordan 2012, bringing you detailed viewings of the Air Jordan 2012 Media Launch Event as well as thorough release information on upcoming colorways and the Air Jordan 2012 iD. The Air Jordan 2012 was a partnership between Tinker Hatfield and Tom Luedecke, a rock-solid team that brought you the Air Jordan 2011. In this thorough video detailing the design concept and attack plan of the Air Jordan 2012, both Tinker and Tom talk about the revolutionary Fit System, which dates back four years, to the key performance highlights of each of the six individual cushioning configurations, using the three Jordan Brand athletes (Wade, Melo, and CP3) as demonstrators. Check out the full tech sheet as well as a great video of the two innovative minds speak about the latest Air Jordan creation below and let us know if you’ll be copping the Air Jordan 2012.

they hot and all but tinker i think that u should stay with the old retros.... they look like the type that mj. wont wear..
When the 7's came out ppl complained that they had no air bubble, when the 9's came out ppl complained that they were too ugly to be J's, when the 10's came out ppl complained that they were too plainand when the 11's dropped, well, everyone loved the 11's from the get go. My point is that J's usually grow on ppl and these can do the same if you give them a chance too.
I just hope that they come out with the id inner sleves. The gray is tight but with the neon volt green is a lil much. Black, white or gray would be fly with this kick
as an engineering student right now, i can definitely appreciate all the tech and design that went into this shoe and i feel like its gonna be very effective at what it was made to do and thats help basketball players perform on a daily basis.
Got mad respect for these guys, but lets face it: Tinker is just gettin old, and Michael just knows people are going to buy it.... ¯_(ツ)_/¯
I tried them on today and they are extremely comfortable and should be an excellent ball shoe. They are really nice in hand and look good on foot.
Not this time Tinker,...not this time. sorry! bad day just caught you when designing this. There is 2013 to rebound.
This is what Air Jordan is all about to me, they're not made to be worn on the street and get attention, they're made to be the best shoes to wear on court playing basketball. These shoes are continuing the tradition of being the top shoe for basketball and I think they look good as well, but buying them just for the aesthetics alone is missing the entire point...
I know that Tinker is the best in the business for what he does. I have insane amounts of respect for this sneaker legend, but I can't get over how out of place he looks as an old man wearing all this JB gear.... No disrespect to him though.
Still ugly no matter how good they ball. I understand that Jordan has always been about balling. But this is really the 2011 in a new shape with 3 insoles instead.
usually the case with Jordans but some models are just ugly to most... Like these, the 19, 20's, 22's and 2010's with the "window" ...I'm going to pass on these too.
I agree with you, all this people complaining that you may pull them off if you wear the right type of jeans... WTF!!! I don't see any ball players in the league playing in Jeans. Their intended purpose is to be a top of the line on-court performer.
Is everyone that doesn't like these a hater??? If that logic is true then...get off of your knees and remove that penis from your mouth, you hypebeast!! These things are NO comparison to any classic Jordan. For $223 retail....the words over priced come to mind.
