    Pros - GOAT colorway, good fit, solid for hooping, high versatility, very clean looking shoe.
    Cons - Shape could have been better, quality is suspect for the price paid.
    To me, the Space Jam XI's are the best Jordan's ever created, so when I found out they were going to be retroed for the 2009 holiday season, I had to get them!

    My initial reaction to the Space Jams was of pure excitement. They looked great! The only thing that I didn't like was how there were little bumps on the outsole of my left shoe, and a few on the other shoe. I honestly just rubbed them off the best I could. I'm pretty sure no one could tell from afar. 

    I hooped in these a few times early in the basketball season, and I wore them at the end of the very successful season. They were solid for hooping. It took a while to break into them, but they felt much better after two games. They are not the best shoes to hoop in, but for a retro with very little new technology, it sufficed.  For reference, I'm a 6' 1", 185 lbs guard.

    After the season was over, I started to wear my Space Jams casually. I've hooped in them only a handful of times since, but for the past few years, I've worn them exclusively for casual purposes.

    I've owned these for almost 5 years now, and they are the best shoes ever in terms of aesthetics. 

    I will be patiently waiting for the next retro (hopefully within the next two years [​IMG]). I would like the shape to be closer to the original. Also, I hope it goes back to "Jumpman Jam" on the tongue!
