Jordan Brand unleashed the Air Jordan Fusion 8 in an abundance of colorways throughout the first half, however, tomorrow marks the initial release of the Air Jordan Fusion 12. Obviously, the Air Jordan Fusion 12 borrows some of its design cues from MJ’s 12 signature sneaker, the Air Jordan XII. Specifically, the stitched-panel upper is the most noticeable inspiration from this Fusion’s predecessor. Yet, it also contains characteristics of its own such as the ankle strap. As for this colorway, black nubuck and textured leather make up most of the upper, while Blue Sapphire stitching graces the nubuck sections. Lastly, a Cyber-stitched swoosh provides a nice complimentary color accent.
Some of you have had enough of the Fusion models, but Jordan Brand will launch again the Air Jordan Fusion 12 this summer. Although the hybrid Jordans can get tiresome, the 12’s actually sold well when originally released. The new colorway at hand features Black/Blue Sapphire-Cyber, while the contrast stitching gives them a solid look.
Though Jordan Brand is in the process of winding down their Air Jordan “Fusion” collection, they still have a couple more colorways of the AJF8 to release. This pair is obviously inspired by the “Playoffs” Air Jordan 8, and thus hosts a black nubuck upper with varsity red accents on the outsole, tongue, and rear pattern and flint grey accents on the Air Force 1 midsole.
No other shoe in recent Jordan Brand history has received an equal amount of acclaim and hatred like the Air Jordan Force Fusions have. Jordan purists stayed away and chastised the designers, while Air Force 1 lovers and those with an open mind (particular the younger generation) embraced the hybridization of these two iconic kicks. The AJF series now reaches the Air Jordan VIII, and it contains all the features that made the 8s a standout, with it’s criss-crossed instep strap, fuzzy emblem on the tongue, and paint-streak design above the midsole. The Air Jordan Fusion 12 has been spotted in an all new colorway set for late summer.? The latest installment of the newly-designed Fusion features a black suede and leather upper complemented by blue sapphire and cyber contrast stitching?
