Air Jordan 2012

While Jordan Brand plans to drop some nice retros this year, their Air Jordan 2012 is highly anticipated. Set to drop this month, the sneaker marks the 27th shoe in the Air Jordan franchise.

As you can see from the pic we spotted on, this year's model builds off of the Air Jordan 2011's two midsole modular system, featuring two interchangeable inner sleeves and three interchangeable midsoles for performance customization.

Designed by Tinker Hatfield and Tom Luedecke, the Air Jordan 2012 boasts premium materials on the upper by combining Flywire technology with rich, full-grain leather overlays for lightweight support and a premium crafted look.

Additionally, it will feature a "Flight Carbon" plate in the midfoot, made from a combination of glass and carbon fiber and is contoured to the natural shape of the foot for optimal support. It is also customizable at retail.

According to HypeBeast, the 2012 Air Jordan will retail for $180 and drop on February 25. The Deluxe version, featuring two inner sleeves and three midsole options (allowing for six different shoe configurations), will sell for $223 and drop on Wednesday (February 8).
