The DMP and CDP releases seem to throw a lot of people off on how widely or often a retro has truly appeared, especially in the case of shoes like the DMP XI or VII. No one is bitching about getting a true concord release are they? Seems like the same thing to me.
But are you serious JB?! 2012 has must have purchases for me EVERY month, if not every other week. I've got the money, but I never imagined they would release such a string of shoes... pretty much starting on Black Friday and continuing for an entire year. And for the record, 2011 has been pretty damn good too: WC3's, Playoff XIII's, Bordeauxs, Wolf Gray Vs, YOTR VII, TB3's, Cardinal VIIs, Banned 1's, BC3's, Last Shot XIVs, Concord XI's. I mean that's about a dozen solid releases right there, and it looks like there's going to be twice as many in 2012!!!
All of the 4's (White Cement, Black Cement, Military Blues, Fire Reds)
Most of the 12's (Taxis, Playoffs, Obsidians, Cool Greys)
X's (Chicagos and those new Royal Blue joints... probably more coming, hopefully STEEL)
XI patent lows
I mean right there is 15 must haves for me, and we haven't even learned about any limited edition or quickstrikes that are surely going to be in the mix (BINs? DBs, some kind of pack?)
