Can't sell any of the regulars for $200 so make an EXTREMELY ugly low version and charge the same price. Just add the hype of the only previous pairs with this nickname being impossible to get. Problem solved. Instant sellout

@pippowz @JMBasquiat I'm with both of you...I was wondering wtf they were thinking in 2013 when they dropped 2/3 of the OG 8s so close to the year of the 8. Now we'll have easily the best 4 Jordan 8s released in the couple of years before what should have been the year of the 8s. Did they figure they didn't have enough 8s to do an entire year of them and combined the 7s and a few 8s while taking a hiatus next year? I dunno what they'd do, but I've been holding out hope that we made it to the year of the 10s and it brought about the return of the City Series. What do you think they'll do next year?

@overtimeoften I don't think they are going to release. The blogs just threw that pair up as a generic pic. They never said the Orlando CW would release and all the pics said it was pics of the last release. The Away aka All-Stars were what they were talking about. I'm hoping for the last CW, the white pair.

They look like the All-Star 5s, not any weathermans (weathermen? does it work like that if it's a colorway and not a person) I've seen.

@MrNike37 Absolutely a mistake. They jacked the price up of the 1s AT LEAST $20. You can't really tell because the Nike Air High OG pairs were $140 until the fragment pair that was supposed to be the first remastered and they were $165 and they just announced the Chicago/Bulls Nike Air High OG version at $160, so laser adds either $20, $25 or $40. I'm going with $25 myself. Maybe round up to $250 for the XXs

The real BS is that the Knicks colorway dropped THE SAME DAY with Nike Air OG branding so they have no excuse, like they started the Nike stuff later. That is some majorly greedy BS right there.

@Iseeulookin973 No, I see it as a major change. On one hand it's possible that is an early pair and they'll be back to normal. I can remember numerous pairs coming out with changes from the OG pair only to have them release with the correct style/color etc and have the pics change closer to release date. What about the jumpman on the back of the 10s? Anyone know if they're going back to the OG way of those?

This is the dumbest thing I've ever seen. There are 3 OG colorways and 2 of them released in 2013 already! So they're going to drop 2/3 of the OGs in 2013, then use the VII's 23rd anniversary Black Friday on the last pair of OG VIIIs??? At least make them the Chromes or something. What are they supposed to release during 2016 for the VIIIs? Are they just stopping then because I was really hoping to get to X/XI because we'd likely be getting the City Pack and MULTIPLE OG XIs a year, plus more. I love the shoe but this is F*CKING STUPID.

Jordan had a pair of PE Jordan 13 Lows that he wore, as far as I can tell, only in the Playoffs. They had an almost all black pair with red soles and another that looks like a Jordan 13 Playoffs low. I'd like to see the tongue on these. Anybody else know what I'm talking about?

So aren't these supposed to be exactly like the OG pairs? The Jumpman on the back is going the wrong direction. Plus the white leather panel on the side of the left pair is clearly all jacked up and creased. These look like the same quality as before, and I don't mean 1995.

I wish I could find a DEFINITIVE list of Jordan 1 OG colorways. I know for sure that we still need a Retro High OG version of the White/Royal, White/UNC or Powder, White/Grey, 6 Metallics (Black/Red/Orange/Green/Navy/Purple), plus the AJKO Retro High OG in Bred, White/Grey, White/Red and finally the Retro Low OG version of the White/Grey, White/Red and White/Navy. This is after they've dropped Retro High OG versions of the Bulls, Bred, Black Toe, Royal, Shadow, White/Black and the AJKO Retro High OG in the Bulls colorway. Anyone want to add or say anything about this list?

I know the flyknit was a unique challenge but that doesn't mean all the other parts had to match..could have had the glow in the dark sole of the All-Star pair and different mudguards/insoles/laces/tongue etc. Could have at least given us the Masterpiece multi-color flyknit and changed everything else up if they were going to make the flyknit match.

Everybody notice how the OG Columbia pair isn't nearly as yellowed as the 2001 retro? When these released the sole was REALLY blue. Not just tinted blue that fades to clear like what we get now, but an actual color and not a clear sole.They held up so much better. OG Concords had this hint of grey that kept them looking great as well.

How are these "loosely" tied to Griffey? He wore them in cleat version and had PE regular versions. Also, MJ wore these as cleats. But hey, why hire people that know anything. Keep throwing out garbage without reliable information 24/7. You guys need an entirely different "retro" writing crew. If it's been released before, please keep these ignorant writers as far away as possible. It only confuses those that want to learn the real history and those are getting fewer and farther between.

Good lord.....how many times can one website explicitly call a pair of shoes OG or not. They were OGs and didn't release, but were made back during the original run and this is right on with the OG pair. This website is going downhill so fast it's absurd. The Penny 1 Aways/Jordan 1 white/black/These Grey Toes have all been sold as multiple different things to us and all 3 have been non-OG or OG MULTIPLE times each. The Penny 1s were "an away looking colorway"/96 All-Star game shoes that he never wore/finally 1 of 3 OG pairs that Penny wore all the time and were released. I mean, even if you already didn't know stuff like that and it's YOUR JOB to write about shoes and give info for a living...google it people. If you're going to take a stance on something at least keep it consistent. And my stance on you is you consistently only have a few writers that have ANY clue about shoes and their history. Why don't you put those people in charge of these kinds of articles and the people who only wear Yeezy and South Beach colorways to the stuff without history.

They need to just come out with a separate Sneaker News:NYC so people quit wasting time looking at these articles that have no chance at a pair of shoes and aren't relevant to them. There's been A LOT of NYC only articles on here lately...and that's cool. It's NYC. But announce it and don't make it look like there might be a way to cop online or what not. Also, separate beef but thanks a lot for giving us all the heads up that the Nike Kobe 9 High EXT Snakeskin was dropping on Nikestore. These MFers dropped 50 articles on those Kobes and never told you where you could get a pair in person or online and then poof they release on Nikestore 2 hours after all the other stuff that day. Makes ZERO sense.

What happened? All of a sudden this blog doesn't know what Jordan and Penny shoes were OGs etc? First the Black/Blue Away Penny 1 wasn't an OG. Then it "looked like an away colorway", then it was the 96 AS colorway he never wore. It was just an away colorway he wore plenty of times. 1 of 3 OGs. I know the Jordan 1s are hard to lock down what's an OG and what isn't but it took me 3 seconds to find that poster online. Pathetic.
