The two highlight Retro releases of the month of June will be the Air Jordan XII ‘Obsidian’ and the Air Jordan IV ‘Military’, and based on this first look at Jordan Brand’s June 2012 footwear line-up, we can see that those themes have indeed spilled onto its lifestyle and Team releases. Shoes like the Air Jordan Retro V.1 and the Jordan 1 Flight Mid will arrive in ‘Military’ uniforms, while the Air Jordan XII Clave and Jordan Flight 23 Classic will don the darker Obsidian to match the original ’97 colorway. There’s still plenty of other releases to note, like the Melo M8 and Jordan 1 Phat in classic Bulls attire, so peep all the Jordan Brand June 2012 Footwear and we’ll keep you updated with more releases.

They aren't putting forth a very good effort with the new generation of the brand. Its disappointing
Melos are horrible the jump man looks out of place... Jordan brand could do a lot better they are with that bullshit
Not that it matters, because all of these are wack, but is there a reason you put the picture of the Flight 9 Max RST on the first page, and then the description of it on the 2nd page?
You're implying that they pay (with money, not gum) people to purposely design shoes that are inferior to an existing design? And for the purpose of making existing designs stand out more? Am I wrong to think the OG designs speak for themselves and lend features to the new products; with every intention to make the new design more attractive to the people who recognize retro features? Lol. What you're saying is like saying BMW manufactures and markets 150,000 base model Mini Coopers so people will be more attracted to a fully loaded 550i. There's a market for everything and JBs "ugly" "lower price" line satisfies the diversity in the market.
Wait, what? Why would they do that? If they wanted the Retros to stand out, they wouldn´t make new ones to begin with. The problem is they´re going with different looks and that the styles are more varied plus the fact that not everything is designed by Tinker Hatfield anymore.
