    Those inserts they’v been putting in the 4s and 5s make them look crazy. I always toss mine immediately

    My Met 5s look nothing like the ones recently posted.

    I swear if Jordan Brand made a shoe that was objectively better than the OG quality wise, people would still complain and think the OG was better.

    I don’t think a retro will ever surpass an OG for many. I think the 1994 retro 2 and 3 perfected their original designs. I can’t say that too loudly around here though.

    Nothing wrong with liking the OG, and nothing wrong with liking newer retros as well. What makes this all wrong is when someone gets flamed for their opinion either way. Remember a lot of us in here arent material experts and dont care when things got changed as far as shape and types of material goes. So its rediculous to show reasons with pics to prove someone else is wrong in their own thinking. Some may like other past retros more than others. If we want to continue to harp on peoples opinions about past retros, we are wasting our time because NONE of them are true to their OG form. Everyone has their own opinion thoughts and feels toward certain models, why cant it just stay that way?.
    While Im on it, calling a shoe trash is funny to me. Especially if said person never actually had and or worn that shoe ever before. A lot of peoples opinions and thoughts are based on what others have said before them. Some just repeat what they have already read or heard. Just because its on the internet, dont make it gospel. I swear if a reputable utuber said OG 6s were trash, several would believe it.

    This is the problem with the entire JB forum and makes it unbearable to even read, let alone post most times. In some cases, people argue over shoes that they've only seen pictures of and haven't even held them in hand. It's crazy.

    Picked up 2 pairs back in 2016 and keep one on ice. Definitely an appreciated shoe for me since I first discovered these on the feet of MJ on the cover of Michael Jordan's Playground VHS tape. Back then, I couldn't afford them but they were and still are one of the top tier model/colorways in Jordan's playing era of all time. Might wear my pair today actually.

    This is the best comparison I’ve seen by far. Gives an actual side by side perspective on height and materials.

    I love these so much. I really need to double, but it’s hard with other of my favorites keep dropping :frown:

    From what I’ve observed since about 2011 is that the price on these doesn’t get as high as the OG 3s 4s or 6s. I see these caping off at $300-$350 maybe over the next 10 years.

    JB definitely did a great job with these. Can see some little differences but over all a very solid retro. Love my pair.

    Have always wondered why the hell they can't even get the font correct for the 23 on the heel. Just another little simple detail that should not even be an issue, yet there's JB screwing with things for no good reason yet again. I remember like it was yesterday when MJ busted out the OG 23 PE 5s in the 1990 playoffs and seeing pictures of them in an SI feature about the Bulls vs Pistons ECF. That was the first time I'd ever seen a "PE" like that. Thought it was sooooo sick LOL
