My Grandfather bought me these the Saturday Morning after they dropped (9/14/96), a Day After my 11th Birthday, which also happened to be the Morning after 2Pac Died (9/13/96).
Back then, you really didn't know what was coming out until you went in the Store and BAM they smacked you in the face! My Papa was probably trying to stay under $120 and put me in some Air Jordan's, but when I saw these bad boys, I HAD to have them. They were $140 +Tax, which back then was really High-End, but he didn't make a big deal out of it at all. I told the Footlocker guy that I didn't want the blk/red Air Jordan XI Low IE's anymore, and that I needed a 10.5 in those Pippens!
I was the envy at school & on-court thru the whole 6th Grade. One of thee BEST Birthday presents of ALL-TIME for me.
RIP PAPA ART.
