Consumers have bought countless old school Jordan classics without the Nike Air branding just because of the love for the shoes....I just find it ridiculous to have a product out 2 years ago and then re-release the same shoe, probably to the same consumer base who bought the previous drop because prior to it re-releasing..it hadn't been out since 2003. From a business perspective, it's a great move..we all get excited when something returns from the past we haven't had in awhile. For most of us, or it seems..some of us, it's not a thrill when you consider it's a limited tease....and the Nike Air branding should've never been taken off years ago in the first place.

I have my originals from 88 (worn) and several DS pairs of "Nike Air" 3s from 2001. Carting them through several moves, and taking care to store them, now seems like it was a waste of time. Once these 2013 joints drop, my collection becomes irrelevant. The point of collecting (i.e., having old or rare stuff that nobody has because they're not made any more) is now moot. EVERYTHING is being rereleased. Nothing old is special. Just wait a year and it will be back. I mean, Nike released the 3s last year! Part of why I always liked buying shoes was to have something special that not everyone else had. That has become impossible. What's next? Danny Supa Dunk retros? Eminem Jordan 2s? I'll always buy shoes, but my mindset now is strictly to wear them. Collecting is a total waste of time and money.

Ehhh. Honestly, I feel like JB could've done a better job.

Why would I want THE SAME SHOE that released in 2011 with the only difference being "Nike Air?"

They should have put the Nike Air on a different shoe that we haven't seen in a while.

Don't get me wrong, i'm for Nike Air, just not on the same shoe that was released almost 2 years ago.

Hmm....

*wonders if Fire Red 3s will have NIKE AIR*

You guys are celebrating JB tricking you into buying the same shoe in a 2 year period mean.gif

At this point, Nike Air ain't that serious

I doubt it. Only reason this shoe is getting the "treatment" is because JB is trolling hard, and wants to have a 25 year commemoration of the slam dunk contest Jordan won in 88. The Fire Red 3 will more than likely have the Jumpman plastered on the back tab like any of the other 3's in the last decade.

wait so you were a collector, and now you're saying that collecting is a waste of time? which one is it? Like I quoted above....Nike Air should've never had this mentality as a "precious pedestal to collectors" to preserve the collectors and OGs J's. That was Gentry's stupid thinking.

To be really discouraged at JB because Nike Air is returning on an Air Jordan, shows the real mindset on how people look at Jordans. Being that the mindset isn't truly sentimental at all to begin with.

I'm good with my 2011's. Good to see OG collectors getting ******* on. I love when they cry about their precious OG's.

Maybe not you, but they know that most ppl who copped last year will be gunning for these. It's pretty much a slap in the face.

Missed out on the 2011 release, getting a pair is a must.

I keep my 2010's in constant rotation. Comfy all around great shoe. Not to mention one of my all time favs. Def gonna cop a pair whether or not Nike Air or Jumpman is on the back.
post #85 of 18155
They prolly gonna make only 88 in the world in honor of 1988 or even worse 3 for the serial # Jordan it is in the series...watch..you know how JB is either that or they gonna charge $500 ....dipset


Honestly rather have them re-retro the Infrared VI w/ no pack and do it right...right material and right shade of infrared w/ no Nike Air .....put THAT OUT

That makes no sense. You're talking about the 01 retros and then the OG's. The OG's lost little to no value when the 2001's came out. Stop man. I remember that plain as day.
post #87 of 18155
Of course, the ones who've never seen Mike actually play ball will be wearing these sick.gifmean.gif.

Congrats to those who are going crazy now. I was buying retro's when they first released them with the NA.

Didn't cop the white cements.
Those will be copped.. Me.. My wife..and I will get her fam n my fam to all try n cop.

This completely BLOWS for anyone with an OG or a 94 retro. Makes them almost worthless.. And pointless for taking care of
