2008 is going to be a very hot year. Its going to be a love it OR hate it type of year. Jordan has decided to do a best of both worlds type of thing for 2008. Here we have the Air Jordan 12 and Air Force One.
Looks like a really… interesting sneaker. To say the least its got people talking. Some say its ugly, others say it is history in the making.
Jordan 2008 is going to be special because of the fact that this year will be the last time Air Jordan will be made. In other words the will only be team player and specific sports players (like Derek Jeter) are going to be the only sneaks made by Jordan. Air Jordan 23 will be the last… no Air Jordan 24 or 25.
So in 2008 Jordan will make these Fusion sneakers. How many I don’t know. I do know that 2 are scheduled. I like the Air Force x Air Jordan 5, but I am not sure about this fusion between Air Jordan 12 and Air Force One just doesn’t work for me.
It looks like a well made sneaker. It ends up being more Air Force One than Jordan but that is ok. It is probably better that way when it comes to the 12. The Jordan 12’s were not one of the best looking sneakers (they look like space boots to me) but that is just my point of view.
I bet this sells well though because of the retro look and because it is Jordan/Air Force.
For more shots, check out Nicekicks. For more opinions, read the comments. The sneaker is set to release in January, 5 2008 for 145 dollars. It is also a lifestyle release so it will only be sold at stores with Nike lifestyle accounts.
I am blown away at how many air jordans there are. Nike makes a zillion different kinds.
