Retro some Pippen shoes for us instead. There's a TON of pairs that they haven't brought around in forever, if ever. These are hideous. They're like the Penny 5s ugly ass cousin. Speaking of retroing some shoes, I'd love the home and away Penny 4s since we're doing the Penny 1s again so quickly. And the Home/White Penny 1s would be nice with the Black/Away Penny 1s that are already confirmed.

I've always held out hope for the Kobe PEs. I mean Reebok released his Lakers Question PE and he was never even with them so maybe, just maybe, I'll get a Kobe version from during his signature exile. And if I was REALLY lucky maybe I'd win the lottery and be able to afford to track down and buy the Jordan III Home/Jordan VII Home and Away/Jordan VIII Home/Jordan IX patent leather PEs. I still remember realizing he was wearing PE IIIs when he posterized Yao for the first time and drooling. I'm also dying for a Jordan IX Penny PE.

I need these with the blue sole and definitely the Olympic pair w/ the #6 on the back. I thought Nike really dropped the ball in 2012 when they made that 4 pack of Olympic shoes: More Uptempos/Barkley's 180s/Shox BB4s/Huarache 2K4s. I can't knock any of those, but they dropped the 1996 #8 Olympic Pippen More Uptempos like a year+ before while the Penny Nike Flight 96s have never been retroed. Oh well. I hope they rectify that oversight this year.

I'm guessing these look kind of like an "away" version SINCE THEY'RE THE FREAKING AWAY PAIR AND 1/3 OF HIS OG Penny Is!!!!!!! How do you guys not know this? It's not the Jordan 1 with a billion OG pairs and AJKOs and all of that. 3 pairs. Orlando pair. This pair. And an almost all white pair with blue swooshes and a tongue like the Orlandos. Not that hard.

No wonder this website operates like a teenage hypebeast....Half the people writing don't know jack about the history of shoes. Some know about the true Grey Toe Jordan XIIIs and their full story and then there's the people that don't know an OG Penny 1 colorway when they see them or realize that the Black Toe 14s are missing the pearl midsole or the Jordan XI IE Bred Lows with a charcoal bottom are supposed to have a gum sole. I was freaking 10 when this stuff came out. Perhaps they need to delegate all the stupid repeat "articles" about new shoes coming out and what celebrity is wearing an ugly ass pair of 1-of-1s today or what color of the week they're dipping an entire Jordan line into, to all of the people that don't know the history. And in turn delegate the stuff about the retros and history to the few that know it on here. With the incessant repeat articles for no reason, the spam and dumbass twitter conversations in the comments and just flat out not knowing your shit it's getting harder to come here for "news".

Just bring on the White/Black pair along with the White/UNC and White/Royal pairs of the same color blocking. Then hit me with the Metallic Pack. Oh and feel free to start dropping OG 16s and 17s. And I wouldn't mind the less popular/known colorways of the 13s and 14s like the 5 combined lows and the Oxidized and Indiglo 14s. But mostly...it's the Year of the 6. We're already being given 4/5 of the OG colors. I understand only giving 3/4 on the Year of the 3 and 5 because the missing pair was released shortly before or afterwards but none of those had NEVER been retroed. Maybe since they've released all the OG colorways but the Hare 7s since 2011 (and even then they were in the 2008 CDP) that they'll push the Maroon 6s back a year. Not a ton of 7s and 8s to fill up the next two calendar years. I'm also biding my time until the Year of the 10 so maybe we can finally get the City Pack.

The OGs came in Orlando, almost all black and almost all white. I don't remember if the black pair had a clear/white airbag or blue like this. Anyone know/remember?

@Audoematic @hrbomber1113 You do know your stuff. I know what you're talking about. In the playoffs he wore a lowtop all black pair with a red bottom vs the Jazz and a lowtop "Playoffs" pair vs the Pacers. But they made a hightop like this with red pods but somehow different. I saw a pic a long time ago and can't find it now.

Sneaker News =/= sneaker history. He wore these in his LAST Bulls season. The 14s were only brought out at the very end of his last season while most of that year was spent wearing all the OG colors (besides low and the Flints). Remember how there's the Black/White Playoff 12s and the Flu Games in the Finals as well vs Utah the first time?


So, can anyone tell me where these differ compared to the OG samples? They seem so close to what I remember but something is off.

@inTheNameofQuen I guess I'll just throw my 2014 pair in my OG box and sell them for $600 lol. I'm not going to do that but I sure as shit wouldn't have worn my OG pair as hard if I knew a slightly worse version was coming that I was going to buy anyway, despite the white midsole. Dumb to have a worn OG and a DS off-color 2014 pair, but oh well.

@ThaFix @hrbomber1113 I had them brand new when they came out. It wasn't yellowing as the pair I own now looks the same as 1999. The biggest problem is they become sticky (somehow). I'm not really sure why they went all white. They just love to take beloved classic and make people happy when they hear they're dropping...only to see the real pics and have them change one minor thing to fuck it all up.

For the billionth time the original a had pearl/goldish midsole. Perhaps when you said form you didn't mean colors as well but this is not the pair I had in 1999 and got another of in 2008.

Picked them up last time but will again. I'd love some 2-4s as well. This is really out of the blue as well. I bet people will be going nuts but they were EASY to get last time and I ended up buying a pair of Eastbay for like $50 months after the release. Of course back then I got 2 pairs of Royal foams for $200 each over the phone without a problem. How times have changed.

Agreed they missed a bunch (even though they kind of took care of a few on the black/neon page by grouping the cactus and coughdrop pairs that were color blocked the same), but were the blackouts REALLY more valuable on the secondary market than a pair of OG Royals when they came out? I disagree.

They need to drop these and the White/Royal, White/UNC OG pairs that are color blocked the exact same way. Then next year finish it up with the Metallic pack (There is an almost all white with grey or silver highlights that's color blocked just like the Metallics but I dunno if it's just white and grey or it's a metallic silver. Pics aren't showing me enough). They have to fill it up with something since out of the 7s only the Hares haven't been released in the last couple of years.

These are some of the ugliest shoes I've ever seen. They haven't ever retroed the Dr Dooms yet this actually gets shat out of the design department. Unreal. These are worse than those fake Jordan with the Air Max 360 soles on them in all the horrible colors/backgrounds/graphics etc.

I can't believe they're going to drop these right before the Beethoven Elite Lows and after dropping a billion high energy EMs in a row. These could have broken up the constant yellows and bright colors a month or two ago but who on earth is going to go for these when they could get the Elite's in 2 weeks? Insanity.

Nike is doing well with the Flightposite...I'd love to see some more PEs, the Eggplant, OG gold and I'd love to see the Eggplant and this Copper back on the Foams along with extending the Foam retro line. After all the damage they've done to the Foam line recently a huge plus like that would really help a comeback.

They showed a billion pics and had a bunch of articles detailing the maroons coming out.....LONG before any pics or samples of black/infrareds. Maybe they're holding them back for early next year since they've made all of the OG 7s at least once since the CDP Hares.

@GeneLin They made those Philippines premiums that were REALLY nice and they were EM. I think they basically just mean they're more rare as they're the same quality of the Bruce Lee/Easter/USA EM pairs I own.
 Of course that pair had a sweet icy sole that looks like a pair of thong sandals as well as the upper going from a tribal/bead looking pattern back into his number and almost a flannel look and these are the most plain and lame pair of 9s they've made so far.

@Nucleus_One Thank you. Literally all the places that look like carbon fiber on the midsole and teeth of the Ferrari pair are that champagne/gold tinted color and definitely not white on the OG. And a second OG is exactly what it sounds like. If you went to the store and bought a box of cereal...and then another...you'd be buying a second box of cereal. See, in the English language second is a word that denotes the number two in order or amount. I was 13 and wore a 9.5 when they first came out. Then I bought another pair of OGs in size 13 when i was 19. Second OG...meaning I had a pair right when they came out and I have a pair that's old and they have the same color. The midsole gets sticky but it doesn't yellow. Seriously, how hard is it to google the OG pair and see that it's clearly not white? Nucleus, I passed when they came out with the side panel version as well but the OGs definitely had the gold/off white/champagne deal. Thanks for not being a douche and knowing what you're talking about. You are in the vast minority on both accounts. Also, still trying to figure out how saying a shoe DOESN'T look exactly OG is hyping. I think that's what, "You hype" means.

Man, the only problem is how close the Kobes are to my Phillipines.....Still love them though. I'm not a KD collector but the 7s sure look nice and its looks like they finally went back to more of the 4s look that was so popular (althought with enough changes to make it work). Can't wait to see more colorways.

@weldonmiguel @hrbomber1113 @Da_Real_Big_Infinite Why would they waste the last OG colorway to release since the CDPs when 2014 is already jammed pack? We have yet to see Jordan release a model one year newer than the anniversary pair so it makes sense it'll be in 2015. There aren't many solid other colorways of 7s outside of the OGs either, unless they're granting a genie wish and bringing the Kobe PE 7s, which will NEVER happen.

Holy Shit Nike/JB.....take it down a notch on the 14th These Family Forever 1s, Cigar and Champagne 6s, Infrared/Speckle 11 lows plus Floridian LeBrons. That's insane for one day. Just the 11 lows and the rare Cigar/Champagne releases on the same day is asking a lot. I thought I'd be busy on the 7th with the SB X Jordan Lance Mountains, OG white/red 2s and Lil Penny Posites. I'm actually glad they put off the What The KD/LeBrons. This is already too much. And that's only half the month! If those South Beaches pick up the hype I'm expecting it won't get much easier on the 21st. They went super easy on us through March and April but are coming on strong.
