    The Air Jordan XX1 seems to get lost in the series of Jordans, but in no way should it be forgotten. MJ had already been retired for a few years and other players were beginning to sell their own shoes. Although it was a bit bulky and higher cut than most Air Jordan sig shoes, the XX1 stood apart with it's interchangeable cushioning system.

    The XXI's grew on me as, initially, I thought they would be too bulky. But, weight aside, they perform very well. I don't just wear my sneakers casually. Iwant them to perform as I play in them since that's what they're supposed to do.

    But, JB has let me down with their retros. I wouldn't dare wear recent retros to play ball in - because Mike's company isn't living up to it's brand promise: "Qualityinspired by the greatest player ever." [​IMG]

    I never was big on the performance of the XX1. Always felt too stiff for me.

    Red's stand out so well. Still get questions on those whenever I wear them. I really wish I had the Grey Suede! I love that CW.

    This is one of the few pairs from the sig line that i've never owned...

    i've always wanted a pair to ball in though.

    Grey and Red Suedes are my favorite

    I love the XX1. Wish I would have copped the red suedes when they dropped but I passed on them...and even though it's only been a few years it seemsdifficult at times to find a ds pair. [​IMG]

    One of my favourite J's. Unfortunately I only have the CDP's
    And that is one of the best Jordan commercials ever

    Not the biggest fan of the XX1, but I do like them. All i have for now are the CDP, used to have the all-white pair when they dropped but destroyed them...Really would like to find a pair of the grey suedes at some point too

    I like the XX1. One of the few Jordans I've liked since the XIV. I've owned 3 pairs of Red Suedes, but sold them when I consolidated my collection...SMH
