Sneaker News posed the question if this past Saturday was indeed the biggest sneaker release day ever, and it’s pretty hard to beat a lineup that deep. It could happen on Black Friday 2012 at the rate we’re going now, but in the meantime, Nike and Jordan Brand managed to commemorate the most romantic of holidays with a custom-built love letter to basketball’s greats of yesterday and today. Along with the Nike LeBron 9 iD ‘Foamposite’, NIKEiD will debut the Air Jordan 2012 iD with what has to be the most immersive and thorough customization process ever offered. The AJ2012’s six insole/bootie combinations add impressive depth to your level of control, and these sample colorways suggest some fine artistry is easily within your grasp. Click through to see a variety of designs ranging from one strikingly similar to the ‘Wolf Grey’ Deluxe to a black, white and red joint whose glossy Flywire base shows how the twenty-seventh Air Jordan offers an evolution of some of the ideas present in the beloved Eleventh (Tinker’s designs for both were inspired by fine dress shoes). The AJ2012 iD is just about to launch on NIKEiD; which palette do you have planned for yours?
