    It's Chinese to English translation. Basically, the shoe will come Nike+ equipped.

    Yeah but I think JB is looking more toward creating performance shoes now. I heard the 2012 was a good shoe to ball in

    BTW, glad to see your avy finally got fixed [​IMG][​IMG]

    This.....x 10
    If you knew how Jordan handled the 2012 and how little Tinker dealt with it... youd realize they need a kick in the pants... cuz no one cares anymore.  Give it to Justin to create I say.

    They only thing still interesting about the Jordan line is the marketing BS Tinker has to put out his %$! year after year to try to convince people he actually tried with/cares about the shoe. [​IMG]

    Seriously though, I find it comical that they're still doin this yearly signature. Shoulda stopped at 23. Shoulda never started naming them after the year. All they'll do is sit unless some clowns actually bite on the new gimmicky 'performance' concept.

    Jesus %*@#$$# christ! Look at all the cries of 'gimmick' and 'Tinker is losing it' based solely on one picture of new technology! Do you realize how many past Jordans have included technology that was unheard of hitherto? People cried gimmick then and now look at the implementation in other shoes. I love how everyone has their hate ready. Everyone constantly whinges about the rising cost of shoes that don't implement new tech (retros). I applaud the innovation.

    Yup. I heard the Jordan 2012s were good. I'm thinking about picking up a pair soon.

    Pesimisim at its finest here in the Jordan forum, I admit I thought the 2012s were trash when the first pics came out but the finished product turned out just fine imho , I'll reserve judgment until we get a finished product this time, I appreciate the use of new tech bought 2011s on sale strictly for ball and they perform great , I'll probably do the same when the 2012s come to the outlets, because after all theses sneakers are in reality BASKETBALL SHOES!

    The point is that they're more concerned about on-court performance than looks. Remember, Jordans were (and still are) BASKETBALL shoes.
