Air Jordan XX8 aka 2013, new "Proplate Zoom" Technology OFFICIAL THREAD. - Page 6

post #151 of 6716
if Nike wanted to continue to do good numbers post retirement, all they would have had to do is one thing.

PUT JORDAN IN THE SHOES

imagine this..

youre flipping through a magazine and you come across this full page ad..

mj shooting a fadeway jumper in poorly lit arena all by himself wearing the 2012.

thats right there is game over for me i would have to buy them.

advertise the latest jordan on the man himself i dont care how old he is.

they should have been doing this since 2003.

^^ I concur

 

I like the 2012's a lot, so I'm very interested in seeing what the 2013's have in store for us.

We buy shoes because they look great or they're a great deal (like the 2012s that are on sale right now) and for most of us, their actual performance is just a nice perk. I'm hoping for the best with the 2013s (the 2011s are still one of my favorite shoes to wear), but JB has been generally pretty disappointing with this line.
those guys are pros, they can hoop in almost any shoe, just look at all the guys hoopin in those garbage retros

I BUY JORDANS PURELY FOR THE LOOKS. IF IT DOESN'T LOOK GOOD, I'M NOT BUYING IT.

DON'T CARE HOW MUCH OF A PERFORMANCE BEAST IT IS. I HAVE OTHER BALLING SHOES FOR THAT.

I read on KATC that they are going back to numbering the shoes, this these will be the 28s instead of the 2013s

Exactly, the funny thing is you will have a few fools who pay retail when they can grab it for $60 at the outlet 1-2 months later and tell everyone that they will regret not buying. JB has become the biggest joke in shoes, the only thing i am interested in is to see the pic so I can have a good laugh. Carry on JB stans.

agreed. the 2012s performed very well and were extremely comfortable... especially since i got two pairs for $120 lol. i love them, and i really dont think that look that bad, compared to all the other yearly signatures.

I like all of the Air Jordans and I take them for what they are worth.  Unfortunately, most people only want retros.  I can't wait to see what the 2013 will look like.  I will probably buy them because I usually get the flagship model with the exception of the 2010.

Could be nearer to $270 like the 'Bron X+ depending on whether they choose to bundle the 'Sport Pack' with it.
post #166 of 6716
the teaser pic of the AJ 2013 reminds me of a sports car interior somehow.
If the shape and colorblocking is good I consider to get them.
Also hope that they don't sell for too high price.

Either nobody cares about the signature Jordan anymore or Nike is doing a GREAT job keeping these secret.

Most people follow this method.

Including me, for the most part.

probably some really good ballin shoes, but knowing JB its probably lookin over 200 smh

post #179 of 6716

2011 are the best well balanced post-numbered Jordan to come out in terms of style and comfort, 2012s are good for ballin but they included too much gimmicks on the shoe, hopefully the 2013 are a blend of bothohwell.gif

post #180 of 6716
gimmicks, Gimmicks and MORE GIMMICKS!!

nike, masters of creating some BS backstory to tie in with the so-called "tech" (that, in reality has no function) to build some sort of emotional connection with the consumer so that we, not only want the shoes, but HAVE TO HAVE THEM.

newsflash nike, they have to at least either:

1. look good
2. perform well

-OR-

3. be limited ohwell.gif
