Our Nice Kicks staff compiled a list of the top 23 sneaker releases that are expected to hit the shelves in 2012. Are you already plotting on how you’re going to obtain the Air Jordan 10 “Chicago”? Is the Nike Air Yeezy 2 the only sneaker on your mind right now? Take a look at our “23 Sneakers We’re Looking Forward to in 2012″ list, and let us know which pair interests you the most in our voting poll below.

23. Nike Air Foamposite One “Electrolime”

Sneakers We're Looking Forward to in 2012

Expected Release: Spring 2012

2011 was an extremely big year for Foamposite in all shapes and colors. The Air Foamposite One, the Foamposite Pro and the Total Air Foamposite Max released more than 10 times in all. We will at least see two Foamposite One colorways in 2012 including this vibrant “Electrolime” pair. Is this more eye-catching than the “Electric Green” Foamposite Pros?

        and one very shitty recently released album.

        1. Anonymous says:

          Shitty album, are you serious!?!? ?Two of the hardest lines of the year are on that album and they’re on the same song no less; Double M Genius.

          “N****s is Kemba Walker tryna see me Pitt fall” ?

          And

          “Foamposites: if you ain’t got em then you Penny-loafing”

          1. um you do realize that one maybe good song on an album does not make that album great, right?

          2. treesty says:

            Yep. Few new albums can be enjoyed from start to finish; obviously there are exceptions. It’s also pretty funny that the 2 lines ol dude pointed out are references to hoop and shoes. Nice punch lines and all, but more mix tape material.

          9. ive herd harder lines on Lord knows and See World gtfoh

          10. Wale says:

            Drake eats butt

          11. 2 lines doesnt make a 15 track album, great. A majority of the album had nothing to do with ambition just straight up gettin pussy

        2. Naptowns Finest says:

    4. MelloShin says:

      Hey im thinking about sleeping on Chi 10s and waitin for Cement 4s cuz im a broke nigga lol. But i made the mistake of skipping the Black Cement 3s for the Concords, then i couldnt get the Concords because of how insane the release was. What i’m asking is,?will the release of the white cements be overhyped and hard to get, possibly close to concord level? Would it be easier to just buy the Chicagos?

      1. KevinR says:

        It’s hard to tell, but I highly doubt it will be as hectic as the Concord 11s release. If you get there early you should have no trouble getting a pair.

        1. GuyAboveMeIsAnIdiot says:

          you’re so dumb!.”if you get there early u should have no trouble getting a pair”..obviously!.lol

      2. Cochrandeasia says:

        na i would go head and get the 4′s aint gon be no line like it was for the concords

      3. authentics says:

        If u tryna get the Jordan 3 cement them still available we got them ..

    5. KevinR says:

      The Lebron 9s aren’t releasing a South Beach model.

      1. GuyAboveMeIsAnAssWiper says:

        how do u know?.u work for nike?!?.or r u lebrons personal ass wiper (probably how he got the info)

        1. TheGuyAboveMeIsABiggerIdiot says:

          actually the designers flat out said that they werent coming out with a south beach cw

          1. GuyAboveMeIsAnA$$Wiper says:

            another of lebrons personal ass wiper?.damn come to think of it how many ass wipers does he have?

          2. guest says:

            good one, i guess?

    6. Orangepop says:

      I don’t think there is a South Beach 9….

    7. Orangepop says:

      I don’t think there is a South Beach 9 I just read the one article by Nicekicks and I think thats the case. That’s a shame

    8. ur da true definition of a fukin hypebeast…..columbias..plain…..yeezys ugly..south beach…overrated?

  5. CJ says:

    NiceKicks, In 2012 id like to see:
    1. A better way to look at these photos. Like put them in a slideshow or?something.
    2. A mobile site
    3. A more up to date release date page.
    *Like if you agree*

    1. Ryan Conrad says:

      I’d also like to see the performance of the site addressed. ?I don’t know if it’s the theme, the script running the complex footer bar, or a combination of other things, but Nice Kicks drags compared to similar sites.

    2. Dopeboyfresh says:

      Lol, I doubt we’ll ever see a slideshow… We can only wish though.?

    3. treesty says:

      I definitely “liked”, but NK and the involved advertising agencies get more money every time we scroll past the ads on each page. Just one of those things we can’t do anything about, and I’d rather click 23 links than sit through a mandatory commercial or something similar.

    4. Marcus.C says:

      Complex owns this site, or has something to do with it and they always have flash slideshow-ish pictures and videos that you can easily click through without reloading every page. I have no idea why they would not try to streamline their site when they’re usually one of the last sneaker sites to post breaking sneaker news. The only reason I come to this site is because ??of the Nice Kicks store in Austin. Why not hire some UT students to code the site for some free kicks. I’M?AVAILABLE?

      On another note this probably will not happen,?I’m?pretty sure Nice Kicks would rather have us click through 23 pages of pictures and banner-ads to generate?revenue…

      Sole Collector> Nice Kicks

        You knock Nice Kicks for being worse than Sole Collector AND ask for a job?! LoL. Good luck with that…

    I’m excited about the Saucony Elite spring 12, but this is probably the weakest release they’ve done so far, with every other one I’ve wanted all of the colors and settled for getting 2 of 4 or 2 of 3, this time I’m really only excited about 1 of them. Grey Cement 4s of course and the 10s have moved up on my list, but the rest of this list isn’t really stuff I’m too enthusiastic about.

    1. Bradley H says:

      ?i’m gonna have to pass on the Bodega x Saucony jawns…their release in Septemeber was dope, but this new one coming up, not so much…

      I’m extremely dissapointed…. I would like to see someone else design the 2013 Tinker has lost his creativity?

      1. CJ says:

        I mean really 2012s look like Jordan just stuck “flywire” (wtf that is) on some concords. If ur gonna make a shoe and staple it with the year make it something new and wat ppl actually WANT to buy.

    3. Busta Rhymes says:

      This is the by far the shittiest shoe to drop from JB in some time, it makes me wonder if they are afraid to pay the designers to do more than color in new Retro’s for us to copp every fuggin month… ?Back to looking for Big Bang Lebron 9′s and Lower Merion Kobe 4′s?

    Looks like a slow year. Cement and Military Blue 4s will be it for me…

    1. whodi says:

      To each their own but to say 2012 will be a slow year is not the case

    2. Fjdaslfal says:

      what about the cement 4s playoff 12s and chicago 10s have some respect for the history of these releases plus theyre all fire

  11. Ryan Conrad says:

    Bordeaux Spizikes, really? ?SMH

    1. leeFX says:

      AGREED.
      I like most Spiz’ikes just because I like how Spike Lee (or whoever actually designs them) took some of the best parts of different Jordan’s and combined them but the Bordeaux release takes it too far.

      The University blue Spiz’ikes that are due out are sick though, just like the recent Knicks release. Glad my first pair of mostly orange shoes were orange Knicks Spiz’ikes!

    Why they didn’t list the Columbia XI’s or the Olympic VI’s, but listed the aforementioned, is completely absurd!
