Totally Agree. I thought the 2011 with the windows were crappy, but they grew on me as they hit the outlets....roll.gif. With more complete pics it will be interesting to see these.

If these are made with the intentions of performance like that last few models they have potential. I look forward to seeing pictures of the entire shoe.

I think this is right fam, people, kids especially, want to do as their heros do. For me the jordan XII is the only jordan I buy in multiple colors because I remember seeing jordan getting crossed over by iverson. This makes the shoe significant for me as the Playoff XII's were my first pair of Jordans that I remember.  For anyone that owned originals and now buy retros, you may remember exactly where you were when you bought the OG's and the retros may take you back there.

2009, decent except the high heel

2010, beautiful shoe which they f-ed up be putting the window.

2011, swing in the other direction and make them too plain

2012, I dunno wtf they were thinking
post #219 of 6716

these are gonna be rediculously priced. i mean if the apl concept 1s started at 300 dollars are something like that. then these if they are really do help your jump will be at least 250 regular and then 360-400 with the nike + tech. i mean these shoes are getting techy but i don't think that it justifies a price increase so high. they already make crazy profit off the retro's. hopefully these come out good and perform well on court but i am not getting my hopes up cuz i think price will be outrageous.

I hope there is a cheaper regular vanilla model. No Nike+, no extra insoles, no extra lace lock , just the shoe

Jordan Brand has always and will always be about performance. I'm still holding judgment like always until I get these in hand and on feet! Oh, by the way the 2012 is CRACK! That's all.
post #223 of 6716
Jordan Brand has been really innovative the more recent Air Jordan models, but I wish they would put that effort into the design. I haven't purchased anything since the XX3s (which are amazing, BTW), not because they're not numbered, it's just they haven't been attractive enough to justify the price. Sometimes you need to put form before function, it's just a sneaker.

Everyone constantly whinges about the rising cost of shoes that don't implement new tech (retros). I applaud the innovation.

I had the same thought but not because of the tech, because they will probably cost over $300 and will be no better than KD's or Hyperfuse's

I have the 22's, 23's, and 2010's and they are still at the top of the performance charts. Nike has used the some of the performance from previous Jordan models and put them into current Nike models. Jordan is still a ground breaking performace shoe. Style is really not what they are after right now, it is second as performance is always first starting from the Air Jordan 1.

... and with a big grin on his face he easily swatted away Iverson's shot.

For the youngin's who never had a chance to see MJ live in action during his prime, he reflexes were amazing, out of this world amazing.
Never, never have I seen anyone come close to MJ in regards to reflexes and reaction times.

I had the 2010 team and 2010 outdoor and they were both great shoes but I also had the 2009 which were supposed to be great performers and they were terrible. I also see a lot of kids wearing Jordans that are clearly for style. I hope the new ones perform though but I'm sure they will cost way more than I am willing to spend

Very well put. Performance has always been the main focus. They obviously put some effort into style - they still do - but not in a way that hinders performance (them focusing on style gets us the Spizike, Son of Mars, Flight 45, etc. but that's another point). Many of the XI's features stem from performance (the clear rubber sole for grip, the "backpack"-like mesh for breathability) and if you went back in time, reactions might shock you after years of IX's and X's. It's because of MJ and the shoe fans that the XI became so iconic, not because the designers put a huge effort into making it a style icon.

Groundbreaking...really??  Didn't the 2012 use first generation flywire that originally debuted for the 2008 Olympics??

post #240 of 6716
I cant believe it. Its less than 4 months
Before release of the 2013 and we only

I remember that the air jordans XVI to
XX leaked out to the community around
6 months before release back then.
