Banned 1's and it's not even close. That release was so fun, and it's pretty rare that you have fun with a release now-a-days. And the thread pretty much epitomized what this website is about and that's people helping eachother. Hands down, one the best releases I've been apart of. And not to mention, JB finally gave us what we wanted with that release, a quality retro and the oh so important "Nike Air".
Banned was a great release but if you wanna talk about hype...the concords have my vote. Just check how many pages the topic has and we still have 4 months to go. I've seen so many people jump on that thread with new accounts but its cool cause im loving the new comers showing some love for the shoe. So I'll go with concords with banned coming in a close second.
Banned 1s, one of the craziest releases ever! I actually traveled to another state to get my pair, that's a first. I probably should've just quoted ohdannyboy. He summed the Banned 1 release up pretty well. The Concord 11 release will be crazy but there will be plenty to go around. Most of us probably want even leave the house for the release. And the Concord 11 is a classic, it doesn't need hype for the release. Everybody and their grandma will be in line for them when they drop. I guarantee most that line up of for them didn't do it because of hype. It's Christmas time and a Air Jordan 11 is dropping, nuff said.
Not even a question for me. Bordeaux VII retro was 19 years in the making. I mean really, who remembers the constant rumors of their release, year after year, only to be repeatedly disappointed? I must admit that there is alot of excitement around the Concord XI release.
so much to choose from but...
Id have to go with Bordeaux since its the FIRST retro since OGs released... concords, true blues, blk/red aj1s, and both cement 3s have all been retroed or re-retroed before
I stopped buying retros a few years back, but this year they are releasing all the shoes I loved. Its a tough choice, but got to go with the concord xi. I am already trying to find an in to get those shoes and they don't come out until Christmas.
Banned 1s release was ILL
but hype wise, it goes to concords first, and then true blues next haha. people that didnt even like jordans were talking bout the true blues cuz everybody else was... not even cool haa
