The Air Jordan 2012 marks the 27th shoe in the Air Jordan franchise. This year’s model builds off of the Air Jordan 2011′s two midsole modular system by featuring two interchangeable inner sleeves and three interchangeable midsoles for performance customization. With legendary shoe designer Tinker Hatfield and Tom Luedecke, Senior Footwear Designer for Jordan Brand at the helm, the shoe’s design continues the tradition of using premium materials on the upper by combining Flywire technology with rich, full-grain leather overlays for lightweight support and a premium crafted look. In addition, the AIR JORDAN 2012 features an innovative “Flight Carbon” plate in the midfoot that is made with a combination of glass and carbon fiber and is contoured to the natural shape of the foot for optimal support. The Air Jordan 2012 FLIGHT SYSTEM will be customizable at retail based on the consumers style of play and will feature one inner sleeve and one midsole for a suggested retail price of $180 USD and will be available on Saturday, February 25. The Air Jordan 2012 DELUXE will feature the two inner sleeves and three midsole options allowing for six different shoe configurations for a suggested retail price of $223 USD. The DELUXE hits stores tomorrow, February 8.
