    These are kinda fresh!! Would you like to be able to purchase any shoe that nice kicks advertises? Would you also like financial freedom? Inbox me at kelvonfluellen@gmail & I can show u how!

    The color scheme could be dope, but the shoe itself is just so awkward. That tongue logo is sick, but again, on a different shoe. And what is that strap? I know it’s similar to the Kobes with the different systems or whatever, does anybody what features are for the 3 different systems (through, around, over)?

    Mike has lost his effin mind these are the worst signature Js ever….the last 3 yrs of Js has been a true disappointment. Mike just cranks out these pieces of crap and when nobody buys he cakes up off of limited release retros…smh

    • I never knew Mike himself designed the sneakers, thanks for enlightening me. I agree though, the signature Air Jordan line has been in the crapper since the 18s (with the exception on the 20s).

      I’m sure he does have say in the designing process of his signature shoe.

    Y’all Be sucking the retro’s so much that you don’t give anything else a chance. These are cool. Especially with the 3 different sock liners and 1 with a strap…I’m pretty sure these are heaven in a shoe when u play ball in them. The 2011s were cool too

    • I’ll agree with you on that. I think the retro Jordans cater more to the people looking to style their sneakers and the signature series is more geared towards those who are actually going to use shoe for it’s intended purpose, to play Basketball.

      With all the technology put into these shoes nowadays, it’ll be a waste if you never hoop in them.

    I’ll be honest here. ?I really hated the black and white version but I could definitely wear these. ?I like the version with the blue sock liner.

    • Anonymous

      I kind of think they do it to combat knockoffs too. ?most knockoff’s won’t have 3 soles 2 liners and all the packaging.

  6. the thing is, retro jordans were considered top of the line ball shoes in their day too.? they just had cross over appeal for the streets.? that is whats lacking in the jordan line for a really long time.? these probably all good ball shoes but the court is where the shall remain

    • Sneaksneak

      not really, the retros we think are hot now, were also controversial back then, its just now, everyones seen retros, theyre so recognizable and everyone has gotten an idea of hot to rock em. how many people have you seen rockin the 2012’s, none right? nobodys really had time to experiment on how to rock them

    What’s the point of all of that flywire if it’s smothered & covered in that leather?? I’m glad they’re incorporating new technology like flywire from other signature basketball shoes in the Nike line-up, but these 2012’s look unnecessarily heavy (I could be wrong?). Take the Adidas Crazy Light, for example…there is a reason it’s the top-selling shoe on websites like Eastbay, and it’s not just because D-Rose wore them last year…….it’s because of the innovative, understated design, and the weight of the shoe (like, the Hyperdunk’s when they first came out).? Same reason that a number of readers on Nice Kicks & Sole Collector have favored the inner instead of the actual shoe by itself.? Also, the never-ending choice of soles & cushions…..fail.? What’s next, is the AJ 2013 going to have 7 cushion choices to chose from?? “Fly Underneath” cushion?? Come on.? I’d rather ball in a pair of 7’s.

  8. I got enough of Jordan Brand…two kids I know of got murdered over his concords and he has not addressed it or any other issues surrounding his shoe releases. My last pair was the Bordeaux 7’s
    I won’t support JB anymore. I will leave that to you young cats who prefer quantity over quality ( thats what Jordan Brand has been doing over the last 4 years). Plus adidas is doing better collaborations and concepts with color blocking anyways. It’s not that I’m hating It’s just not the same game anymore. I’m taking my money and talents to realityville. Plus trying to style on another person is a high school trait. Too old for this shyt..( Danny Glover voice )

      How many people get killed cause someone steals their car? ?You want BMW to make a statement? ?That’s the dumbest thing I’ve heard in a while. ?Jordan doesn’t control the way retailers release the product. ?Neither does Nike. ?Ignorant ass people are not his responsibility.

      • Sneaksneak

        uhh. yeah they do control it. thats why theres only a certain amount for each store, thats why each store sells them at the same price, thats why each store could only release them at a certain time on a certain date. JB and Nike control all dat. otherwise these stores would have more pairs and release them as soon as they get their shipment

    Jordans measuring scale is too high….if u look at like this.These are better than most signatures out right now except for prolly the lebrons, and i guess the kobes(even though they all are basically the same shoe) but since MJ has created instant classics before you expect that every shoe with out even giving it time to grow on you..

    Ok it is evident that Jordan Brand has run out of ideas for the 2K Signature series Jordans, so just keep releasing retros and end the production of eye gouging releases like this one.

    I kinda like this shoe, once I slept on it. I just don’t like that super high ankle strap. I understand it might be for performance reasons, but it makes the shoe look really awkward. And really ugly. Even if I did have the shoe i probably wouldn’t use it anyway, because i prefer to play in lowtops. I don’t like anything restricting my ankles. Ankles get fucked up either way.

  12. rafi215

    I’d wear them, “low and light” for me though, that big ass strap on the “high and tight”bootie isn’t for me. I still need to see these in person.

  13. Guess Who?

    If they make a lower cut version without that gigantic jumpman on the side I’ll consider buying a pair to ball in once they hit the outlet

  14. DugLast

    This is definitely forward thinking in terms of technology. JB deserves props for that. But this shoe is really making me appreciate the simplicity of the 2011. A more stripped down “shell” (like the polished leather on the ’11) would better suit this shoe.

  15. SWAGGOO

    nice technology but when i saw this i thought it was someone tryin 2 b funny… Looks like Jordan should head back 2 the drawing board… I thought they had something last year… guess not

  16. Simmons Miquel

    These are the best year of the dragons… The 2012 Jordan’s are clean and not over the top, you can ball or chill with them on… The lebrons and kobes look awkward on your feet when you trying to match em up with clothes

  17. Durty_Basturd

    Corney, Nike your new image is ass. Over priced, over hyped bull shit. Seriously, first you weren’t trying…now you’re trying too hard.

  18. Corsi

    These are literally the ugliest shoes I have ever seen in my entire life, if I was a big Jordan head I would be so offended.

  19. cool dood

    the first ones looked cool but not hot theyre deff gonna be best ballin kicks on the year next to lebrons

    I could see Kings during the Renaissance wearing these shoes, not necessarily a bad thing, maybe this is the dawn a new era in the sneaker world, little did we know…

  21. WQin

    This time,NIKE is so absurd,this shoes is plundering of?the planet’s resources,Chinese?will not accept the way?
