Daily Dose: Air Jordan 2012 Lite supports quick cuts

Jordan Brand / The Air Jordan 2012 Lite uses lightweight technologies to support the ankle and foot during sharp, multidirectional cuts.

What: Air Jordan 2012 Lite
When: Available now
How much: $150
Where: jumpman23.com
The Scoop: The basketball performance shoe integrates Flywire, a technology that provides a sturdy support system for your foot. Since Flywire is durable, less material is used in the overall construction, helping to keep the shoe lightweight.

The inner sleeve is made of mesh for a snug fit that allows the foot to breathe.

The heel collar is slightly asymmetrical to support the ankle and allow for some flexibility. The heel also has a cushioned notch to help reduce chances of slipping when making sharp cuts.

On the bottom of the shoe, a multidirectional traction pattern offers a supportive grip.

The Air Jordan 2012 Lite is available in six colors online and additional colorways are expected to release during the next few months.
