Not sure if this its the forum but My boy bought some DS OG Playoff 8's and they cracked on him and he only wore them around the house once and I recently got some 9's which also cracked on me >:
>:
..I just wanted to know which OG Jordans crack for future reference if I decide to buy them DS.

All shoes eventually wear out their welcome. Even if they are not worn, the shoes are made of man made materials. So the obvious answer to your question would be that as time passes materials erode and weaken. There's a reason why most online sites state for older releases "Wear at your own discretion".

the only ones that really doesn crack are the original 1s because of the material they're made of
and X and up

It all depends on storage. For older OGs you will be better off to buy vnds. I've seen people on NT wear OG VIIs many times with no problem, because the shoes get worn.

VII's don't crack, they separate.

I's don't crack because the outsole and Midsole are made of rubber.

X and up are made of Phylon instead of Polyurathane.

Jordan XI's can seperate. The same goes for Retroes. If the OG's crack, the Retroes will too. My Fire Red III's from March are already starting to crack, after about 20 wears. They still look ds, except for the area around the air pocket. Truth be told. If you want to wear your OG shoes, Wear Them! The will eventually fall apart. Nothing last forever. I personally would rather get the satisfaction of wearing them than looking at them. I've got to wear every OG Jordan, so the retroes do me fine.

^^^^its not really the seperation, its just the OLD glue on the XI's that wears out due to heat and age, but they can be easily glued back....N about the III's?? Didnt JB use a different material so that it was not possible for them to crack?? Maybe it was just the paint that cracked for you

It's definitely a crack. It comes from the back of the air pocket to the heel of the shoe. I'd post a picture, but it's not that big of deal. I wear those shoes the most out of all my pairs, and if they indeed fall apart, I've got another pair.
