I've seen many people have the Jordan XI as a favorite shoe and a lot of people rockin that shoe. I've seen people rockin the Spacejam CW,BredCW,Coolgrey CW,etc... but not much rockin the Columbia CW.What are your opinions on the Columbia XIs because I want to get a pair of 11s and possible in theColumbia CW. Any opinons? Should I cop them?

Columbia's are definitely popular but their problem is the yellowing of the patent leather since they are 8 year old sneakers. There is no way to reversethat yellowing and combined with the inevitable yellowing of the soles, the shoe goes to yellow. Too bad we dont get blue icey soles like the OGAll-Star's.

Cop what you like. You spend your own, hard earned cash. Don't worry about what others think on your choices.

Personally, Columbias are ok. ALL other colorways are better.

I think the Colombias are nice, imo the 4th best. Only because the fact they yellow bad!

If they drop now im sure they'll yellow in lese then 2 yrs.

I have two pair. While they are nice, keep in mind they are 8 years old, and a straight dirt magnet for being so damn white. Personally, I like my jordans alittle scuffed and rugged, and these XIs are doing just fine keeping up with my aggressive play.

Exackly. And despite what sooo many people want, retroing them will only degrade the quality even more making the yellowing occur faster and worse.

Columbia's are better than all the XIs except the Concords.

Breds have the red sole
Spacejams are overhyped
Nvr liked the CG
