Re: Air Jordan Shoes

Sorry lol

At least it awoke a level of nostalgia for you and probably a good memory or memories.

Re: Air Jordan Shoes

I owned a few pairs back in the day. I still like some of the designs, but my problem is I just don't think the shoes go with anything I wear. I like some of the 'natural' variant color ones like this - https://sneakerbardetroit.com/air-jo...-release-date/ - but I also just don't think I could wear high tops anymore.

Re: Air Jordan Shoes

They were $125 or so when I was getting them in High School. the III, IV and V were among my favorite athletic shoes ever. After that they slowly, and then quickly went off the rails IMO.

Re: Air Jordan Shoes

Never owned a pair. My mom never let me spend that much on sneakers as a kid.

And now I don't have much desire since it doesn't really fit my fashion style, I don't play basketball and I don't have much interest in collecting them. I do think Air Jordans are still damn cool though.

My first though was, "wow, that's kind of slick." My second thought was, "wow, this won't help me at all." With few exceptions, I would never buy any product that is likely to be counterfeited anyway, most especially any form of clothing or jewelry, for exactly the reason you stated.

Re: Air Jordan Shoes



I never owned a pair of Jordan's though I can remember seeing the first version in a store back in the 80's and being shocked by them.

The Nike Air Max Barkley edition above worn by Sir Charles and the Fab Five were my favorite basketball shoes ever. They were amazing.

Re: Air Jordan Shoes

I never had or owned Jordans, would have loved them probably when I was younger. I don't wear basketball shoes for "fashion" or casually, and for actually playing basketball I'll wear other Nike's like the Hyperdunk line.

Re: Air Jordan Shoes

I owned the Air Jordan V shoes. I still think they were the best.

Re: Air Jordan Shoes

I never had these growing up, so was all over them when Nike first started making retros of them some 15 years ago. The quality of the initial retro's was great - it since went down hill in later years.

I pretty much have all of the AJ I through VII line. I never really cared or followed the AJ designs past the VII. The IVs in tour Blue are great. My favorite is also the V - both the OG black and white.

I don't much wear any of them out and about.

Re: Air Jordan Shoes

Interesting.

I was already a HS senior by the time Jordans first came out and my athletic shoes of habit were by then plain white leather whatevers.

Heck, for decades now I just buy a new pair of plain white leather Nike Air Monarchs every year or two.

Re: Air Jordan Shoes

I know people collect anything and I get that cause I collect stuff.

So people paying this money, no, parents paying this money for kids
to wear those sneaks is crazy.

Adults buying them to collect them is something I can understand.
