Jordan Flipsyde

Jordan Flipsyde

Last year, the Flipsydes dropped to disappointed reviews. For this coming November, they’re back, but can these AJXII-inspired models change the opinions and avoid the outlets?

Drawing design cues from the “Taxi” XIIs and “Flu Game” XIIs, these will drop in two new colorways. The black pair is accented with a red outsole, leather toe caps and heel logos. The other uses black leather for accents on white uppers. Both feature mid-panel eyelets in red or gold. For added heel protection, the Flipsyde features a heel air bubble and an uppers made entirely of pebbled leather.

Believe it or not, but there was a time when old school skaters were anti-Nike SB. Much has changed since, obviously. Can Jordan Brand transfer its dominance from hoops sneakers to the skate market, or is this another anti-purist move hurting JB’s image?

    skateboarding and Jordan just don’t mix. the only relation Jordan had with skateboarding were the Jordan 1′s. other than that no skater will know about the “flu game” or what jordan these are linked to.

    As if Nike SB, and 6.0 weren’t enough.

    DwightSchrute – Im a skater and Im a basketball player. I know what ALL Js are about since I grew up watching him. I have used many Js to skate in from the AJ1, AJ 3,4 &5 along with The AJ12. So dont just assume that skaters arent fans of sports, and dont participate in sports other than skating. Now I personally think that JB making a skate shoe isnt the worst thing that they could be doing, but if your going to do something do it right. I thought the first Fltpside was cheap and uncomfortable and would rather skate barefoot than in these. This version looks more rugged but still a bad shoe.
