Is it true that one of the most beloved original Air Jordans actually struggled in stores in some regions of the States? While you can expect any Air Jordan IV to fly off the shelves these days, we can only wonder if the upcoming 2012 Retro release will experience a similar retail dispatch like its 2006 predecessor. Even priced at $115 and releasing right at the start of the new school year, the Air Jordan IV ‘Military’ was still available for weeks after, with some stores marking them down considerably. Are these another ‘On The Fence’ release like the Air Jordan XIV White/Red, or has the desire for Air Jordans, particularly that of Air Jordan IVs, grown so much over the last six years that these won’t last beyond a day? We’ve got a detailed gallery of the 2012 Retro after the jump so let us know if you already have an ’06 pair on ice, if you’re copping these on the day of the release, or if these don’t interest you much at all. via SA

These pics are horrible, i dont think they will look this baby blue in person. I think its just the pics.
I think the color looks off because of how high the contrast is in these photos. As a guy who usually hates everything Jordan puts out quality wise, these are already looking better than the 06's. If the mid-soles don't crack and the toes don't crease as easily they're def. better. They also look better than the Cements that just dropped. Again, I think the blue is just off because the picture has been enhanced.
best jordan ever, y'all retards if ya don't camp in front of your next-door-store, more for me and more money for me selling them on ebay to you bastards coz ya'll give in to the hype in no time, morons, gief meee your monneeeeeeyyyy !!111!!!1!!
That Jordan logo on the tongue, the arm is too skinny. On the bottom of the shoe, the arm is thicker. Wassup with that?! Not feeling that grey/beige either
If they don't sell out though the weekend and are available the following Monday and can use my discount on them and they don't crease or chip on the sides like the 06 version then I'll consider them. But just like eveyone and they mom bashed the Dave white 1s and they sold out watch these end up the same. Then again the blk/red xiv didn't sell out and are still around but those ugly royal x sold out smh.
It's crazy... these dropped my sophomore year in high school. They didn't move AT ALL... nowadays they're gonna be gone just like that. Damn... guess ima have to cop Olympic VIs early if this is the case with Retros...
The craze of Jordans died down during that time. It isn't until the last few years that everybody wants J's again. I wear the old retro releases sometimes and I get all kind of attention like they never seen the shoe on foot before but in all actuality those were the same retro's that sat for weeks on shelves that people overlooked or really didnt care. Shit is CRAY!
Only question I've got is will they have fixed the cracking issues with the paint on the midsole... Have an '06 pair that I've worn about 10 times and they already look like... yes that. My '12 White Cements don't seem to have the problem though...
yup, im copping . so ill see all you hypebeast waiting in line, while ill cut in front of the line to get both of my pairs to....
I can't wait for these to drop. I remember not being able to get them back in 06 when I was junior in high school so these will def. be on my feet this summer. Only thing I find wrong with these is that the military blue is a shade lighter then the 06' and OG's, the grey is lighter too.
it's just mind blowing that when these released in 06, stores couldn't even get rid of their stock in a month let alone 10 minutes. either way, I hope I can get a pair to add to the sneaker rotation.
the gray looks sandy and the blue looks too light like a little darker carolina JB always got fuck something up
People who cut in line are the scum of all sneaker copping! GTFOH! NObody wants you around son for real.
