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.
wow, other than the fact thats been done before, yo delivery was mad corny


and im happy they didnt, because i was able to get the deluxe 2012 wolf greys for a steal no where near $223, the retros are sellin so well JB aint stressin their performance/legacy line numbers and im happy because its actually quality performance footwear for the low and im gettin it

It's long since time for them to just admit numbering the sequential shoes after the year wasn't in their favor.

 

If true, overtime, maybe they can retroactively rename the others.

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

THIS.

Most people follow this method.

Including me, for the most part.

From the statement, I can assume you buy kick just to ball in...sooo if the shoe was a beast on the court, and you could get it for way under retail, like the 2012. Why wouldn't you??? I mean thats why I got them, and once I had them in hand, I loved them.

I think they were off to a good start with the 2011 design wise. Instead of trying to hit "home runs" with every shoe in the brand, just focus on design and performance and the shoe will sell its self. The history of Jordan's past keeps me excited for the coming release, the 2012 wasn't bad it just stepped back from the 2011 in my opinion.

the last jordan sig i purchased was the one that used his print around the toe box.   i didnt even look at the new models after that.  just getting some retros i missed out on

post #194 of 6703
Lets be honest here, if the shoe looks hot and have a sub $200 option, they will sell.

All JB has to do is runs some CG ads with some of Jordans greatest in game moments with him wearing the 28s. That's all the marketing they need

The og Pro, both EJ sigs, both Baker sigs, Pures, Team 1 etc were cooked crack in shoe form...  hell, if next to one another.. even the Elites, J'Madness n' the 1st half of DJs line would honestly lay waste to, and embarrass the current 'elite' hydrocarbon based, heat-fused, foot-shaped, fruit roll-ups... 
..n' sure, weight may be arguable.. but theres gotta be more of a balance w/substance... 




Jordan Brand should be analogous to Michael Jordan, circa the 4th quarter... but in these days its more like Harold Miner, circa 1996...










Well, actually in most countries they were just called Air Jordans or nicknamed after the NBA season they were released back in the days.
I remember that me and my friends always said Air Jordan 1993 for the VIII and I personally started to switch in 1995
when the Air Jordan XI were originally released for the NBA season 1995/1996.
Please be advised that Nike did not add a number on the Jordan box before the Air Jordan XII white/black-taxis.
Before they always printed AIR JORDAN on the box, that's it.
To me the Air Jordan did not cease with the XX3 but the so far, the only one I really like are the AJ 2011.

Yep, bad move. They almost turned JB to a retro line exclusively.
Yeah, they at least need to have more players like Ray Allen, Q or Juwan Howard wear them. They stopped having people to JB and gave them their signatures(Melo, CP3, DWade), but they still need some young and rising talent the way they used to have with Derek Anderson's and Darius Miles' to promote the line. You have players wearing Jordan's, but retros, which for the life of me I don't understand. Yeah they might look better from a far, but you'd rather wear a pair of X's or IV's than 2012's? If basketball was my career, and your feet, ankles and legs are essential to your livelihood there's no way I'd risk it on 10 and 20 year old technology in half *** retros.

I Agree also, the retros already have a life of their own as they dont need anymore promotion they sell themselves basically.

Players should wear the new models and promote them in various colorways. Its like they only do it around all star game time and then drop the ball.

I remember D.Anderson had beautiful (imo) pe's of the air jordan 9 retro lows. So did Darius Miles, JB should release those white/orange AJ 9 patent mids with the clear soles.

I'm very very interested in this Shoe... You guys Keep Forgetting that the SIG Jordan is to the Pinnacle of Performance, and Style a Distant Second... But to Be honest the Recent Sigs at least to me looked nice... SO reserve Judgement until Pictures Come out. But I think these will Turn out to be great all around.



.........NUFF SAID
post #203 of 6703

And YOU keep forgetting that the Sig J was all about the blend of PERFORMANCE and STYLE.  The style was just as important as having the most innovative tech.  They have neither now.

post #204 of 6703
Maybe you should wait to see them before passing judgement.
post #205 of 6703
interested in seeing these. there is a small chance of something nice, a big chance of some garbage
post #206 of 6703

This looks very promising. Jordan Brand is always on the cutting edge of technology.

The 2012's were really a great sneaker, very comfortable and performance orientated.
My belief is that they did not get great reviews because they design was aimed at a more
more mature buyer - 26+
