    theyre great and all, and grail worthy until a true OG gets announced. Surely you understand the dilemma here...

    I havent gotten around to breaking out my pair, and now im in the lucky position of cashing in and buying a hopefully better pair. Win win?

    I’m still looking forward to that happening

    Well I could of said worse but shrug.

    My opinion could change by the time this shoe comes out. As of now

    Too soon. Could of came up with another or similar cw. Now good to those people who want to cop. Imo it’s a let make everyone happy, who couldn’t cop the 1st several times shoe cw wise.

    I copped ‘15 Chicagos last month. If a “True OG”
    Version is announced in near future, I won’t trip one bit. ‘15s look and feel great. Won’t mind having both versions.

    With these ‘85s supposedly being released in such large numbers this time around, I doubt they’re gonna be in super amazing quality like we’d dream. Not saying they’ll be bad quality, but I can’t see these being both the largest produced 1, and being the pinnacle of quality. The messed up thing is that regardless of how “OG” these really turn out to be, in 3, 4, 5, how many years until they rerelease them again, they’ll again be deemed as being an even closer representation of the originals. And the bad part about this is that people like us will need to buy each iteration, as they’re always deemed as being closer to the originals, therefore still limiting them being able to be acquired by everyone. If they rereleased them every once and a while, but they were just the same each time (like Chucks or Air Forces), eventually everyone would be able to get a pair, as collectors and shoe nerds like ourselves wouldn’t have that added necessity to get each release with its different details/features.

    Yo, if they released all the 85' remasters with H2H quality I'd be IN for each one. My no dbl up rule would have to have to be challenged. What's funny is that we've all talked about JB doing this years before Folk broke the news. Either way though, if they're done right I'm in.

    Sounds like JB wants to finally see if Air Jordan I hype is sustainable at big holiday/event Retro release numbers. Makes sense.

    I ran my 2013s into the ground, have probably worn my 2016s less than 10 times, and I'm still in for 2 if they do this well.

    Until they add the curve to the sole though, I'm not impressed by the "just like the '85s" talk.

    Buying at least 2 breds retail or resell.
    I’ve only worn my ‘16s once 4 months ago so I can only imagine the glitter surprise when i open the box lol.

    But shout out to those that put me on to the meguiar’s wipes

    I can see this becoming a trend, continue to pump out Jordan 1 Retro High Blk/Red every 3 years because Jordan Brand knows, they will sell regardless because we will want every iteration of it since each offer something unique and different. Or JB will finally place this color way in the vault Like Gentry said he would do the Jordan 3.
