unc georgetown debuts air jordan 2012 pes NCAA Feet: UNC & Georgetown Debut The Air Jordan 2012

College basketball offered up some premium entertainment last night as the UNC Tar Heels squared off against the big-time rival Duke Blue Devils and Big East heavyweights Syracuse and Georgetown got down and dirty in Western NY. Not much more can be said about the history behind these two match-ups; Duke and UNC have been trading blows for decades, while ‘Cuse and G-Town – without question one of the biggest rivalries in college sports – threw down in what is likely to be their last bout in the Carrier Dome, so it’s clear why Jordan Brand selected this great night to debut the all-new Air Jordan 2012. The UNC Tar Heels sported PE colorways of the Air Jordan 2012 ‘University Blue’, while Georgetown spiced things up by throwing some Volt into the mix by way of the ‘Wolf Grey’ joints. We’ve got some nice in-game action shots for you below so take a look and stick with Sneaker News for more NCAA Feet action as we near the tournament! via Yahoo

Air Jordan 2012 Media Launch – Part 2

February 7th, 2012 by | 16 comments

air jordan 2012 media launch part 2 1 Air Jordan 2012 Media Launch   Part 2

After wrapping up the question and answer portion of the Air Jordan 2012 Media Launch with Tinker Hatfield and Tom Luedecke, media was sent over to “baggage claim” where flight attendants presented us with a Jordan x Cole Haan Weekender Bag containing a pair of Air Jordan 2012s and some gear to hoop in. After “choosing our flight” and suiting up, it was on to the next curtain, which moved aside to reveal a full hardwood basketball court inside the airplane hangar. We were run through an extensive set of drills and warm-ups, putting the shoe to all kinds of tests in order to get a feel for the on-foot reaction to all kinds of movements, cuts and impact. Whether it was the high or low liner option, everyone seemed to respond favorably to the performance of the shoe, but it was some pickup games for the attendees left standing after the drills portion that would provide the ultimate test for the Air Jordan 2012.

Alongside the court, another long curtain walled off the final area of the launch – an overwhelming spread of Air Jordan 2012 samples covering most of the room. While some new colorways like the All-Stars and Bred edition seen earlier today were revealed, the majority of the Air Jordan 2012s seen throughout are Nike iD samples showing off the multitude of customizable options for the shoe. In addition to the Air Jordan 2012′s arrival on Nike iD on February 14th, we can also expect to see an iPad app and some other goodies on the way. Keep reading to check out some pics of the event, some new upcoming colorways and a slew of iD samples that very well may change the way you look at the Air Jordan 2012. Whatever you thought you knew about this shoe up until now, put it aside for the moment and take a look at what the Air Jordan 2012 has to offer.

Air Jordan 2012 Media Launch

February 7th, 2012 by | 13 comments

air jordan 2012 media launch Air Jordan 2012 Media Launch

Jordan Brand is well known for pulling out all the stops for the launch of a new flagship model, and this year’s Air Jordan 2012 media unveiling was certainly no exception. Sneaker News was fortunate to be part of a select group of media picked up this morning and driven to a mystery location for the event. The cars eventually pulled up to a hangar in New Jersey’s Teterboro Airport with a large metallic Jumpman logo on the side of the building leaving little doubt that we had arrived at our destination. Once inside, media was “checked in” to their “flight” at a counter manned by members of the JB team and even a few flight attendants, and then piled into a room where the Air Jordan 2012 was officially introduced. After a brief set-up, the shoe’s designers, Tom Luedecke and none other than the legendary Tinker Hatfield (proudly repping his alma-mater in a pair of ‘Oregon’ Air Jordan III’s), were brought up on stage to run through the backstory and details of Jordan Brand’s latest installment to the Air Jordan heritage line.

As you might expect from what you’ve seen of the shoe, there is certainly a dress shoe influence, but it’s origin might not be what you were thinking. The inspiration for the wingtip aesthetic came from quite an unlikely place – a Tinker Hatfield architecture gig for the city of Portland. Tinker had been working on a rejuvenation project for a Portland neighborhood known as Jump Town, which was once a Northwest hub for jazz music and its fashionable culture. He was intrigued by the idea of the wild “zoot suits” that were worn in those days and the flashy footwear that often accompanied them. The idea was born and the look was translated via iPad sketching into what eventually became the Air Jordan 2012 – a shoe with some visual call-outs to a forgotten era crossbred with some next level technology found inside.

Aside from its unique look, the standout feature of the Air Jordan 2012 are its modular parts and the wide variety of options that can be explored. The idea of offering two different inner sleeve booties and three swappable insoles with different levels of cushioning comes down to one simple concept – allowing the consumer to tailor the shoe to their own customized specifications. No matter your size, position, style of game, there is something to cover it all, whether it be over the long haul of a season or switching up from game to game to adapt as you go. The innovations cross into some new ground for the Air Jordan line and are definitely worth a closer look in person when they start hitting retailers tomorrow in the first two colorways. Keep reading for a thorough look at this afternoon’s Air Jordan 2012 introduction with Tinker Hatfield and Tom Luedecke and stay tuned for part 2 of our launch recap later tonight.
