The early 2010 release of an Air Jordan 1 Alpha along with a similarly styled Air Jordan 2010 had us expecting that the signature ‘Tinker Hatfield’ palette would be some combination of ivory, orange and black. But for the latest Air Jordan flagship release bearing the brilliant designer’s name, we get something much simpler and perhaps more timely. The Air Jordan 2012 Deluxe ‘Tinker Hatfield’ Quickstrike goes with the simple black/white mix that’s dominated the spring season, their early-’12-ness further reinforced by (year of the) dragon embossing on the medial ankles. The strikingly simple colorway really draws your eye toward the AJ2012’s many luxurious details; will you look to cop these when select Jordan Brand retailers like West drop theirs on March 15th?
