I recently wore my pair of Cool Grey XI's for the first time and noticed a very stronge smell of glue or plastic of some sort. Has anyone else have this problem with their pair?

I like the good brand new smell as well, but this smell is different. It smells like when you get a new shower liner for the bathroom. It's really strong, I never had any of my other shoes smell that strong.

Did you buy them from an Air-randy, Slamdunkspace, etc...?

Smell reminds me of my college days back in organic chemistry lab. They slap the shoes together so fast to sell them the glue doesn't have a chance to finish curing. I wouldn't want to be the glue guy on the assembly line

Jordans with patent leather have a certain smell to them. my cool grey 9's had sort of a funky smell to them too.

Actually all AJ XI have a very distinctive smell.
Maybe it is because of the patent leather treatment or something.
