Ha! The AM 97 sketches PROVE Nike hasn't forgotten they made the AM 96. If only they'd drop both models.

@bienvenido Thank you...so obvious. If they were hyping it up like all the shoes releasing in 9 months you can bet the Altitudes would have been mentioned 4 or 5 times.

@Boknowmagic loved those...they're really lacking in some classic AMs from the late 90s early 2000s...plus the obvious AM 96s...BOTH of them (and i don't mean both colorways...I mean models).

They're better than I expected and the Team version looks like like Joker/Chaos that disappeared over the last couple of models. I like the Team and Rose Gold but I'll probably get all 3. I have all the Kobe Elites (and EXTs) released so far except for the HTM pairs and NRG pairs..so basically any Kobe Elite that was available in more than one city in the world. Tough to get your hands on pairs only in NYC or Milan when you're stuck in bed in Kansas haha.

@Nick_Nando_88 I'm hoping they cross off all the regular High OGs in 2015 and then get to work on the Metallic Pack in 2016. We've got the Bulls and the White/Powder UNCs already confirmed (although dropping the Bulls in 2013 without Nike Air on the same day they dropped the Knicks in Nike Air and now pulling these out is a weak move). All that's left is the White/Royal and the White/Grey as far as I know. Through 2013-2014 we got the Bred/Black Toe/Royals/Shadows/White and Blacks. Add in the Bulls and UNC and we're only those 2 away. They could easily add 2 more 1s this year. I know of at least 6 metallics (black/red/orange/green/blue/purple) and after these white/grey lows I know of the white/red and white/navy lows from 1985. In the KOs we got the Bulls last year and I know of the Breds/White-Reds/White-Greys. Know of any other OGs and have pics?

@rj87 I liked the 7s too aka the Poison Dart Frogs that were all black with mint frog pattern, but it looks like you and I are about the only ones who think these are a step back. Love my 8's and 9s. The 8's winning for me.

Damn it....TRUE RED. Put True Red back on the Playoffs. The difference is HUGE. Varsity or University Red are okay but the OGs and the CDPs are the only with True Red.

@JMBasquiat  @hrbomber1113 @pippowz I knew they were going to end the "year of the" fairly soon since they d NEVER do a year of the 11s. I figured 10 would be as far as we could get. They honestly need to start working on the 16-18s among others. They botched the 16s recently, but if you're going to jump all the way to the 20s you can hit us up with the few classic OG 16-18s. At least the man wore a lot of those great colorways and the ones that he didn't were pretty nice (Bred 16s/White and Red 17s etc).

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.

@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.

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.
