A Closer Look at the Air Jordan 2012 "Year of the Dragon"

With the February 25th release date nearing, JB gives us yet another look at the anticipated Air Jordan 2012 "Year of the Dragon." Incomparable attention-to-detail has been carried out with this shoe, as it most notably draws connection to the number nine. Not only significant because it's the number that MJ himself donned during the USA's gold medal run during the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, but more importantly, it is an integral part of Chinese heritage, representing both the largest possible single digit as well as the symbol of the emperor. In accordance, Nine-Dragon Walls can be found throughout imperial Chinese palaces and gardens, as the shoe then highlights inspiration from each. Click through the featured imagery to get a better look at the upcoming release, and don't forget, they hit shelves on the 25th. [via Jumpman23]
