For the Spring 2012 roll-out of Air Jordan X and Jordan X-related releases, Jordan Brand included a special edition hangtag which featured a frosted red ‘X’ and a black Jumpman label, a throwback to the ‘hangtags’ that accompanied some of the earliest Air Jordan releases. Here’s a first look at the Air Jordan XII ‘hangtags’ that will come in tandem with the Air Jordan XII ‘Playoffs’ Retro; to fit the extra Roman numerals, the ‘XII’ hantag is rectangular in shape, as is the black Jumpman tag. It is likely that other Air Jordan XII releases, like the ‘Cool Grey’ and the ‘Obsidian’ will come with these tags as well, and the issue of the missing hangtag issue could be pop up again. Take another look at the hangtag after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for more updates on 2012’s Air Jordan Retro releases. via mentalkicks
hand tag said "Air Jordan Collection" so its for collection only, forget about the quality stop. the hype keep it to yourself.
Guys calm down. FYI there is pretty much no shoe on the market that utilizes "real" leather. It's ALWAYS synthetic. That being said, there are vast differences in quality. And sadly I have to say these pictures differ from what we've seen from the XII retros so far. I was actually hyped because it used to look very nice, but this pair is worse to a point that makes it appear out of shape. Most notably look at the lining in between the black partitions. It should appear padded, with a minimal spacing in between the partitions. These just look flat. I seriously hope they will improve the final product.
stfu bout quality its eitha get em or dnt. stop livin in da past its a shoe not a fuckin science experment every person dat talks about the 15-20 year olds destroyin da game is an idiot older dudes started the resellin campin out n all dat otha shit so if anythin u guys are killin da game. matter of fact fuck yall sneaker game we creatin our own. let us camp for gr's if we want or buy well ova retail(witch i would neva do since i work at footlocker) worry about ur self n mind ur own business fagets
That second pic looks fake the Ribs of the shoe dont even poke out like the 12'suppose to i hope those are just display shoes and not the final product cause 12 playoffs are one of my favorite j's..And i never ever complain about quality but that is just horrible thats like taken the hollowgram bubble out the 13's lol
121.80 size 10 for me no worries i pay cheaper then 97 retail they a lil off but there's nothing like the og's, so either get them or not they still will sell out sad to say 174.00 in New Orleans
The kicks aint even out yet and some dumb ****'s act like they are camping in line. And of course the quality is not the same. The OG 97's 12's were some real quality of shoe. But I'm not a hater I wil get them and sport them oh soooooo fresh!!!!!!
From the poor quality to the price hikes, sneakerheads need to find a different avenue when purchasing kicks. Not sayin start buying fake shoes(even though they probably have the same quality) but the sneaker game has become a major headache to those that cannot wait in line for hours on end and camp over night because of priorities and i really dont see them stoppin the hysteria anytime soon. At this point buying b grades and c grades will be the proper action to take and show these companies that they are not far away from fakes than the sneaker community actually claims. Constructive criticism and alternatives need to arise from this point forward...cuz muthafuckin sneakerheads need to think outside the shoe box for once
fuck man i'm trying to quit jordan but everytime i see these pics i just cant stop about copping them........
Man everyone stop Bitchen if you were a true sneaker head wait in line and earn the shoe. The shoe is what it is stop haten on the qualityy and get off this web sight if your not a true sneakerhead! Truth.....
Damn these look cheap. They actually look like a variant pair that I received by an idiot. Still getting them, but I miss that puffyness in the leather along the sunrise stitching
Google the ogs from 1997 and then look at a side view, and then you see why. The leather is so flat on these, it used to have indentions. Fact is JB is lazy and people like you who only care about the name and not the quality make ppl who actually give a fuck about what their buying suffer with the horrible quality control they push out b/c you drones will buy anything
All I hear is bitching and. Complaining. HypeBeast,bad quality.15-20 year olds ruin da sneaker game. STFU. I'm FUCCIN 20 nd I DNT get every damn shoe and I DNT camp in no FUCCIN lie and DNT pay over retail to get them early. I get the ones I want and if I DNT GET'EM o well I DNT. Cry Lik a Lil bitch. If got some bad to say DON'T FUCCIN GET'EM. Keep yo money and yo comments to yo self. Damn. By da way if I can get these imma get. Fucc all thumbs dwn and negative comments
Damm man this is the only sneaks website I got to where every niggaz hatin on sumthin may it be the leather or wannabees or price hike I mean damm at first it was funny but you guys complain more than females
Someone please explain to me when people became leather experts from viewing of pictures! I see the same tumbled leather in this pic as Louis Vuitton, Prada, and Gucci shoes, when I actually touch it then I'll be able to judge the quality. Damn near all leather looks identical in pics. I'm definitely going to buy one for myself and one for this kid who's mom donated a kidney to my uncle. Quit complaining all the fuckin time!
Hangtags are always a plus when it comes to shoes its the little things that make it more special. Definetly copping.
Hope they press enough tags for all the shoes they fuckin make! I'm still pissed my X's didn't have the tag, crooked mothafuckas!
you idiots complain about the quality but still plan to cop? Make up your damn minds. Btw, anyone receive their hangtags from Nike about the X's?
gimme some pics on the obsidians !!!!!!!!! this is a no brainer!!!!!!!!!!!! JAYS ARE KILLIN MY WALLET !!!! HELP I' AM ADDICTED TO JORDANS !
Leather looks cheap but they do have bulkier look like the OG's. Hangtag's are cool, give jays that classic nike look.
Yo, it's somethong about waiting on line for hours to get the satisfaction of getting such a lovely shoe. Can't wait April!
oh my god...i usually dont complain about quality like alotta guys but look at dat pic wit da hangtag....see how flat the gaps are in between the stitching??!?!?! shit looks almost fake
WOOHOO HANG TAGS... COPPIN' WITH OR WITHOUT THE HANG TAG. ANYONE SELLIN' A PAIR OF 2002 RAPTORS?? SIZE 9. I NEED A PAIR TO WEAR.
I feel so much pity for you, waiting "hours" for a General Release is blasphemy and will always be. If its not a QS or LR you will never see me wait over an hour.
Bro I got to get the money from my great grandmother. Might have to sell my Xbox and play station to get em but I'll do anything to get em from you dribbles!!!! I love u man!!!!
BET!!!!! I can tEll all my friends I will be getting the concords for the low price of 500$!!!! Stain!
