The difference is, that people did not "collect" shoes back then, and didn't care. We wore these out the store, used the box for our baseball cards, and in 6 months the pair was trashed from hooping and the playground!
I know $190 sucks, but its in line with inflation TBH. I buy Jordans for the memories, not the quality.
Inflation? We're talking a $40 price increase in just four years. JB has you brainwashed, put down the Kool-Aid. There's absolutely no valid reason why my three pairs of 2011's are worlds above my pair of 2015's when it comes to quality. People like you ARE THE PROBLEM.
I am talking OG to OG model. 1991 vs 2015 inflation. These were $125 back in 1991.
I buy about 3 models of JB per year, because I know the quality sucks and it is, what it is.
I speak with my dollar, if I can't deal with it, pass on the shoes and keep it moving. I'm tired of hearing y'all complain about normal mass produced variances, expecting some hand made piece of art. These are made by machines and 12 year olds.
