Air Jordan 5 "Grape" MAY 4th, 2013 - $160 - Page 2  

post #31 of 10313
Ohh, so we have just as much info about this release as we did before. Nice to know.
If this has good quality I will cop twice, since I wouldve finally started my career by then. Bad quality = 1 cop
post #32 of 10313

sucks i was gonna sell my pair
that 23 does not bother me. In fact a few of the OGs like the Red Sole Fire Reds came with a 23 and a pretty ugly one at that.

So glad that they are retroing them next year.

One of the best colorways of the 5s.

Will most certainly cop!

Some pairs do not have bad quality. The WC IVs and Cavs are recent examples.
post #38 of 10313
Definitely will pick these up.
post #39 of 10313
Can't wait for these to release. It seems like next year all the Jordans i want to finish my collection are coming out: Black/blue 1s, Black toe 13s, Grapes, and white/black/red 8s. Maybe i'll pick up a couple more of the 5s that will come out for the 23rd anniversary.

For a release date im thinking right before or the beginning of summer. If not, Black Friday 2013
post #40 of 10313
Please no 23 on the side. Two pairs to send me into retirement, these and Concords are the Js necessary for doubling up for me.

After that, I'm out. Tired of dealing the resellers, hypebeasts, and jumping through hoops just to get a pair of shoes.

True and false. I haven't worn my Cavs IV's yet, so I cannot speak on them. But as far as the wc IV's go...they are BETTER quality, yes..."Good" quality, not so sure about. Leather is SUPER hard and stiff. Not too many glue stains, but the truth of the quality wont be revealed until they are worn a few times. For the record, my wc iv's are still ds also, but how many wears until the midsole cracks, I wonder? 12? 20? Less?

Quality is something that for loyalists of the brand, that we want, need, and deserve. For the prices they charge and continually increase, ALL retros, theoretically, should be very good quality. I will speak on ANY topic I choose to scrap, and as far as buying Lebrons...I've been doing that too..wink.gif...my passion is for the sneaker I grew up on though which is Jordans.

"Want" - yes. "Need and deserve" - arguable. You certainly don't "need" it. You may deserve it...I've been into sneakers well before this whole sneaker bubble thing over the last year or so. I actually had OG VI's in 1st grade. I hear where you're coming from. Don't get me wrong. My point is that EVERY post in the JB thread has complaints about quality. Things used to be one way with Jordans and now they're not. Times have changed. Cars are worse quality (especially American built) than they used to be and cost more now. Such is life homie.

I suppose some may believe that if you complain loudly enough and enough times, maybe JB will change their ways...?? But what's the last Jordan that didn't sell out? Military IV's? And before that...? Stealth X's? So 2 Jordans this year didn't sell out of all the Jordan retro releases so far in 2012? Yea, I think Nike/JB is ok with those kinda stats...

At this point, it doesn't matter WHAT JB releases, the quality will be subpar. You HAVE to know that at this point. So to complain about it is, as I originally said, painfully redundant. Just the idea that you are hoping that the quality will be better than its predecessor is kinda laughable at this point.

Yes, you can talk about whatever you want. At no point did I say that you couldn't. My point simply asked why you continue to do so, "scrap"...

Not entirely accurate. There have been re-retros with better quality in comparison to their predecessor. It happens, just not often enough.

Tuesday release is the best if they go back to it, send them kids back to school if they start camping on these.

I agree with your statement but imo there is a difference between better quality, then a predecessor and top quality....For example the Black/Red XI's coming out this Holiday will most likely be better then its predecessor, The CDP XI (peeling 23)...it will not be top quality though.

Please dont mistake me for complaining cause I will be the first one online trying to cop, just stating an opinion

You are correct, it's not entirely accurate. The military IV's come to mind...I didnt cop the 2012's, but I heard their quality was better than the '06 (which I have...and hate).

But speaking in generals, I still stand by my statement.

And i'm not complaining either...For the most part, I cop regardless. I do put my foot down for some retros though...White/Red XIV's come to mind...as do the Olympic VII's. Straight basura.

I have worn mine over 20x and still no cracks. I love the stiff leather. Dont se why it is a reason to complain. I didnt get a half size down since it was the 1st IV of the year and it still hasnt creased that bad. The Fire Red IVs came with more creases than my WCs have now.

Stiff vs soft leather is a personal preference, NOT a quality issue. I wish the Fire Reds came with that leather tbh. And if comfort truly bothered you, you would not get jordans in the first place. A pair of worn, snug Vs are the only truly comfortable pair in recent history (my opinion). Cant speak on last years IIIs since I missed out on them (I am hunting the two I want down tho)

If the average Jordan Brand shoe was Cav IV quality, there would be no reason to complain. Mine are still deadstock too, but come on, you can just tell. Besides that shoe has been nothing but praised on NT and that is a rarity.

And yes there is quality that is bad but you can't complain (like the recent Military IVs, they are not bad, they are just not good). Then there is quality so bad I think of burning down corporate headquarters in hopes that they get the message (Fire Reds). Im pretty sure everyone who complained about the FIre Reds wouldnt complain if it were Military IV quality, we'd say a few words of disappointment and then enjoy our shoe, as we know it could be much much worse.

I missed the 06 release. I will miss this one also. I'm one of the few that do not particularly care for the color way. I'll get the fire reds though! smokin.gifsmokin.gifsmokin.gif

Knowing JB, they'll put the "23" on the side to distinguish it from the '06 version. mean.gif

I hope they don't though.
