    When will it end? I quit buying a couple of years ago when the quality went bad and the prices went too high and the Jumpman on the back instead of Nike Air. Inotice the Space Jams came out again. I missed it. I got the e-mails from Finishline and Eastbay saying they were available but of course they weren'tsince they sold out right away at midnight. I'm not sure if I would have purchased anyway since they are $175! They should be $125 which still is high fora pair of shoes. I was crazy into Jordans about 5 years ago. Tried to buy everything that was retroed. I sold just about everything. I still have a few leftlike my 1994 3's. Best shoes ever! Would be sweet if they made those again but it will sadly never happen. The quality on those were sweet and had Nike Airon the back. Very close to the 1988 OG's. I also still have some XI lows in the red/white which are trashed but the quality and comfort was nice on thesetoo! When they meshed Jordans with Air force ones I admit it was cool at first but man they have gone too far. Some of those are terrible! Sorry I am just anold collector who wishes Jordan Brand would go back to the quality and comfort they once had. So, how is the comfort and quality of those Space Jams that justcame out?

    there's always gonna be bandwagon hoppers. as long as they exist...Jordans will sell. and if they wait 9 years to re-release a hot shoe, i.e. space jamsthey WILL sell out. and as far as the comfort/quality...i have no idea lol.

    The most recently released Jordan that I bought were the Olympic 1s last Summer. I have just been focusing on buying the ones from 2000-2006

    i've stopped keeping up releases and havn't really bought shoes in general, but whenever a class jordan comes out in example bred I or sj come out ican't help but buy them. The feelings of buying shoes never really stop my friend, hence people will alwyas be buying.

    LOL - Yes, i am 36 and am losing my hair, not a big deal to me, it's actually easier. Maybe you are right, people quit when they get older? Funny. I likethe Jumpman logo, it's not that. I just like the OG look with the Nike Air. Like I said, I'm just an old collector who wants better quality and betterprices. and who is this guy Sneek Geeks? Where did he come from? He's crazy. I like the dude though.

    what a question.. people are still gonna but no matter what. 75% of the jordans that comeout sell very quick.. nah i'll say less than that probably. theycharge so much for the kicks now to make up fpr the ones that dont sell. they make so much its not even funny. its definetly not like before though, in my eyesquality reigns supreme

    Why are you making fun of his male pattern balding?? lol

    Yea I know what you mean, quality went down price went up.
    Jb just figures nobodys gonna wear them casually or for basketball so whats the purpose.
    Most ppl dont even wear their shoes anymore, its retarted to buy a shoe to look at

    I know I will get to a point like this one day where I stay away from jordan releases so I can't be mad @ the OP for simply questioning whether or not pplstill fall for JBs crap.

    To answer your question tho, yes ppl are still buying Jordans.
