    Has it really been 23 years since "The Shot?" 23 years since MJ's Bulls advanced passed a strong Cavs team into the 2nd round of the 1989 Playoffs? 23 years since MJ rose above Craig Ehlo at the free throw line and hung just long enough for a split second open look?

    It has, indeed. And to celebrate MJ's heroic game winning feat, JB's next big release comes with a Cavs not Knicks inspired Air Jordan IV.

    Kinda messed up that they'd release a shoe in an opposing team's colorway that MJ killed with a dagger to the heart. But if you're familiar with past Jordan Brand releases, you'll remember that this is NOT a new tactic. They did special colorways for a few of MJ's 60+ performances and even some Team Jordans got the special "eliminated foes" treatment.

    Ok guys these shoes run .5 size big. I'm normally a 9 for the rest of the Jordans but the IVs run big just like the WC. Glad I took a 8.5.

    So what's the word on how easy these will be to get at the usual retailers like Footlocker, Finishline, etc? I know they'll most likely be on the online sites but I wanna know if they'll be easy to cop in store..I always had a connect but the ones I had either don't work at the stores I used to buy from or they're not reliable enough for me to depend on like I used to
