Make sure you weigh in on which brand you think has the best YOTD releases at the end of the feature.

While we are still in the dark as to when and how most YOTD releases will hit retailers, the YOTD AF1 was happily welcomed amongst the ranks of past Chinese Zodiac releases a little over a week ago. Loaded with subtle nods to the dragon atop a wealth of premium materials, these are a stellar addition to any sneakerhead?s collection.

  18. Memrcs says:

    Those AJ 2012′s look like some kind of crappy ass shoe kit with all the accessories and packaging, they want you to feel like you’re getting alot whe. U buy some junk for $200+….C’mon man stick with retros!

    1. AJ 2012, These are strictly for collectors and basketball enthusiast. If they keep releasing retros every month it water downs the product. It takes away from the value. Expand your outlook on shoes. You have to learn to look outside the box.

  19. Travis R says:

    what about the lebron 9s?

  20. These are nice. The AF1′s are the best though.
