these are great to me if you really wanna have the closet pair just buy the 2013s and skip this release

If that was the case don't you think they would put tumbled leather on the other 1s in 2016? I think my theory of only the trinity being tumbled is plausible. Plus Jordan Brand doesn't change the shoe that much.

Well, if it is true that they're tumbled then I wouldn't have guessed from them since the 2016 version is actually a retro of the 2011 version. My theory (if anyone said the same thing then our theory) is that Nike/Jordan Brand wants the trinity to have the same leather type.

where was it ever confirmed that '16s were a retro of '11s? it wasn't. i think ppl just assumed and ran with that theory strictly based on the "banned" name attached to the '16s and the tumbled leather. the truth is '16s are just a remastered, re-retro version of breds, period. if '16s were a retro of '11s, i figure '16s would also have the "X" on the heel.

this. i also think when the rumors first surfaced everyone thought it was the retro of the 2011 banned release because everyone kept attaching the name to the shoe and JB had the lil banned campaign with it

They took the X and added on the inside of the shoe along with the correct date.

u just disproved your own theory. if the "trinity" all have tumbled leather, then that confirms '16 breds are NOT a retro of '11s.

Technically they are apart of the trinity given the colorway.

true. good points. i guess we'll have to wait and see what the final product looks like. i'm just glad they didn't try some foolery like tumbling the leather on the BTs.

technically, at least in my mind, the trinity is actually breds, chi, and BTs. not sure how/why royals and shadows were ever included in the "trinity." but i guess that's a whole nother debate.

Yeah, that the Red (Bulls) trinity but some people believe the trinity is the Black, *Insert Color Here*, and White original colorways.

I have the 2001's, but I'll still try for these just for the shape and comfort.
 
That comparison a page/ few pages back was still off in terms of color. People were saying these are the right shade, but I think it's too purple and the glossy finish doesn't help either.

Yall up in here debating what the "trinity" is LMAO!!!!! The trinity of the 1s will vary person to person. Nobody will ever have the same opinion.

Can you just stop man. You are not a "sneaker genius." The 2016 is not a retro of the 2011. That's ridiculous. After the Bred dropped last year you were also telling everyone that the Royal for sure wasn't going to be tumbled. You have zero sources. You make assumptions and try to pass it off like you have information. Not trying to be rude, but this is why so many people get into battles with you. Not everyone can be a source of sneaker information, just accept being a casual fan of the shoes.
