Air Jordan 2012 Lite - Joker

This Summer, the Olympic Games have taken the spotlight for special color schemes.  Rolling around every 4 years, the sneaker fans always look forward to one of the biggest sporting exhibitions of the world, as country specific releases take precedent.  Another event held during the summer happens every year in the finest city in America – the San Diego Comic Convention.  Sneaker brands use comic book themes with regularity, and and this July is no different.  Representing four characters from DC Comics, Jordan Brand has taken their latest Air Jordan model and given it the superhero treatment.  For our SDCC Spotlight Special, the Joker version of the Air Jordan 2012 Lite takes the stage.
