The Air Jordan 2012 Lite is set for a worldwide debut this July as we lead up to the 2012 Olympic Games in London. The AJ2012 Lite could be spotted on the feet of a number of participating countries vying for Basketball Gold, as we’ve seen a Red/Yellow ‘China’ colorway (a country with which the USA squad may be set on a collision course with). As we get more detailed viewings of this slimmed-down Air Jordan 2012, we can note that footwear designers have gone with the multi-dimensional approach, as we’ve seen shoes like the Fly Wade 2 and Nike LeBron arriving in a series rather than a singular shoe. Do you prefer ‘Lite’ over the original? Check out the new detailed images below and stay tuned for more viewings of country-inspired Air Jordan 2012 Lites, and let us know which colorway you’ve seen thus far is your favorite.

im thinking this is fake...i bet sometime soon jb is gonna issue a statement saying they didnt make this plastic-wrapped turd of a sneaker. Yea jb has fallen off quality game for a while now but this would've been a catastrophic fail if they actually did make these. I know its burns eyelids to look at these j's again but do it anyway, tell me its not something u would see off a website that sells fakes
Fcuk!!! Tinker lost it. Prolly he ate some CHORIZO in Spain or Mexico and reminded him of the PIG's INTESTINES stuffed with gizzards when he designed these so-called 'Lites' b/c that's exactly what I see here. SMH
Anyone else feel like the shine on these looks like the vacuum-sealed shoes you see on shelves of places like Flightclub? Lmao, I remember when these first showed up at sneakernews I thought it was a vacuum-sealed shoe.
I know JB is supposed to be all about class but these colorways are just uninspiring and down right boring
This is pathetic.. I may be alone on this, but maybe JB should take a break. Hit the drawing board hard and get to work on a new legacy. Till then focus on releasing quality retros that are already loved...
People who play ball LoL....im a retro lover till death, but retros are horrible to hoop in...i dont know how the nba players do it
Retros r the past thats why there isnt much focus on those, these r for ball players the future of footwear. Retros had there time and ima retro guy but i understand business and for him these ugly performance shoed is business
They change the insoles to Customs made for them. Oh and those who have retro ps have prolly the whole shoe fitted for them
Your right but that same material goes into most retros but the ppl dobt realize it cuz they want OG quality
