What a way to end the first half of the NBA season! We’ve got a lot of NBA in-game sneaker sightings to catch up on, so let’s get to it. Starting off with last night’s much-anticipated match-up between the Knicks and the Heat, LeBron James was seen wearing the Nike LeBron 9 ‘BHM’ with the Black/White Alternate uniforms. In San Antonio, sneakerhead/small forward Kawhi Leonard rocked the White/Black Nike Zoom Rookie LWP after he wore the Air Jordan XIV ‘Chartreuse’ just days ago. The Nike Zoom Kobe VII iD has started to pop up more frequently, with great designs from Demar DeRozan, Nick Young, and Brandon Rush. Houston’s Kevin Martin jumped the gun by unofficially debuting the Air Jordan 2012 in the White/Black colorway (with the Red inner bootie, of course). Check out the rest of the NBA Feet action below and stick with Sneaker News over the All-Star Weekend as we will keep you up to date with all of the action! via ESPN

Jordan Brand took their sweet time with ‘Year of the Rabbit’ releases in 2011, extending the Chinese New Year theme far beyond the February holiday and well into the fall months.  This time around we’ve seen no indication that suggests a similar follow-up, but the Air Jordan 2012 Deluxe ’Year of the Dragon’ is indeed moving on its own schedule: a Thursday, February 23rd release that comes a full month after the earliest Lunar New Year in four decades.  The water dragon-inspired look will arrive at select JB retailers like Millennium Sports in just a couple of days, but with the NBA All-Star and accompanying ‘Galaxy’ collection about to also hit store shelves, where’s your focus for this biggest of NBA weekends? If you’re locked in on these YOTD’s you can avoid the messy weekend rush by picking up a pair now on eBay.

complex 25 greatest sneaker innovations Complexs 25 Greatest Sneaker Innovations Of All Time

In the end, all that matters is if the shoe looks good on your feet. If it doesn’t, chances are it won’t be a popular item, even if the shoe promises to make you jump twice as high or perform some other physical feat that was at once unattainable. Over the last few decades, footwear designers have successfully welded design and function into some of the greatest sneakers of all-time, starting with the debut of Air Max technology in 1987 to the six-combo interchangeable cushioning presented by the Air Jordan 2012. Sprinkled in-between this chronological list is some of technologies that you might’ve forgotten, like Reebok’s DMX or Converse’s Helium, so check out some of what made Complex’s list below and head to Complex for the full twenty-five.

Air Jordan 2012 Performance with Tinker Hatfield

air jordan 2012 performance with tinker hatfield Air Jordan 2012 Performance with Tinker Hatfield

“We always start with performance. We always start with trying to make a better basketball shoe.”

One of the reasons true genius is so rare, is that those capable of bar-setting achievements are very likely to be unable to describe exactly how they got there. In the case of a groundbreaking designer, it’s a bit more likely that they’ll be able to guide you through the process, and in the case of someone with as much experience as Tinker Hatfield, coming up with new neckbreakers is now down to a science.  Tinker and Tom Luedeke began the Air Jordan 2012 with superior on-court action in mind, and were able to offer the most complete set of personalization options ever on a basketball shoe, all while incorporating inspiration from Portland’s classic ‘Jumptown’ jazz scene.

Air Jordan 2012 Flight Lab Is On The Move

Jordan Brand had a bunch of surprises in store for last year’s NBA All-Star Game, including special edition G-Shocks, skateboard decks and a wear test in Los Angeles that invited Jordanheads to try out the Air Jordan 2011′s Quick/Explosive cushioning system.  The leadup has been similarly quiet as we approach the ASG in Orlando, but there is now at least one piece of photographic evidence that JB’s on the road to somewhere.  The mobile Air Jordan 2012 Flight Lab was seen out on the interstate yesterday, with the photographer‘s Twitter feed displaying GPS coordinates for somewhere north of Portland.  In other words, the semi was spotted heading out of Beaverton to parts unknown; maybe they’ll hit a city near you, or even the upcoming All-Star Weekend?  Keep your eyes on the JB Twitter page and check back with Sneaker News for updates.
