These and the LeBrons are really well done. Considering the Kobe 8s got 3 pairs of the YOTS and also a YOTH I'd really hope the 9s will be available, especially with how well they were executed.

@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.

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.

@Da_Real_Big_Infinite Thank you. Obviously they're not dropping the Hares when they're the last of the OG 7s to not release in the past 3 years. Hell the Olympics have dropped twice, we got the real Charcoals and the faded ugly ass ones from the pack, and the Bordeauxs and Cardinals released in 2011. It also surprised me that they dropped 2/3 of the OG colorways of the 8s last year when they were so close to the year of the 8s. I only really liked the 3 OG pairs and Chromes honestly so they'll have to go with a TON of special releases to make up for it.

Until it's a problem for them to the point where they're losing money they'll drag it out and give halfass fixes and/or excuses to try and satisfy the people who hate getting screwed out of shoes by bots...but on the other hand will still try for the shoes the next weekend because they/we have no choice.

@Nikes_Jordans_ @hrbomber1113Exactly. In a world where random people on the internet can get entire societies to believe that celebrities are dead MULTIPLE times...I'm pretty sure Nike can just claim they're stopping bots or post a couple of things on NT. That's an extreme conspiracy theory but I don't buy they're fixing things without evidence. It's like the 100th episode of South Park where they debate about being for or against the war and then they finally realize that being a country that can claim they care while doing things that say otherwise is being able to have your cake and eat it too. Nike is just acting like they're doing all these things to stop bots because the rest of us not using them are getting bufued but in reality they sell the same amount of shoes no matter who gets them and that's all they really care about. If rare stuff starts selling out they'll fix that shit in 24 hours.

4 months ago on Nike Takes It a Step Further, Denies Bots in Person

This is all nice and all, but do any of you remember the FIRST Nike bot prevention they announced? It was on the re-released Jordan 3 DBs last year. They claimed they caught a bunch of bot users on NDC and they wouldn't be getting their shoes and to keep posted for more details. Of course they might as well have given the shoes to the bot users since they never showed up again on a restock or another planned release of the remaining pairs. When I see the pairs that were not sold to bot users RESOLD shortly afterwards to people not cheating...THEN I'll give a fuk. Because in the end whether they sell them to the bot users or just hold onto them, give them to celebrities or never make them available again, those shoes aren't available to those not cheating the system. And THAT is the goal that matters to me.

I first started thinking with the Sport Blue and Maroons I'd have all the VIs I've wanted besides the DMP ones. Then I started thinking that they'll never release since they'd have to do the pack and XI mids don't drop besides at Xmas. Then I thought if they're still refusing to release the Columbias that would be perfect. I still don't get refusing to give us the Columbias, regardless.

Not to mention these probably would be pretty far down the list of colorways we've seen of the Elite 9 so far. Maybe even the worst 2, but because they're super exclusive the hype will get out of control and there's no chance.

@SneakerDoeI could just copy and paste except replace, "House of Hoops won't call my tickets" with "House of Hoops or any other store getting them doesn't exist for hundreds of miles". The only solace I get from that is that if my town got them they wouldn't call me either as I haven't won a raffle in well over a year. Quite honestly when they were talking about just retroing the 2s I thought they'd be like $150 and not that hard to get. Reactions were lukewarm. Then they brought out the entire pack and said it's going to be super limited and BOOM hype machine. I went from trying to figure out how to budget 8 extra pairs in 2 months to not having to worry about getting a pair.

 I try every weekend on Nike.com and the BEST I've done is get in line and wait until they sold out completely. Most of the time I get in line and i get an error that kicks me out after a few minutes and I can't add them again. Other times it literally just gives you the out of stock message the second they become available. I really hope somebody out there is figuring out how to make sneaker bots completely screw up Nike.com and cost them money and time with a malfunctioning website or a virus etc so Nike.com will actually do something about them. If you look at it as it is they still sell every pair and nothing changes for them. Sure, we're all mad that we all of a sudden can't buy anything but we still come back when it's our only shot at the shoe. So it's not their problem. Sneaker bots need to become a Nike.com problem or we're screwed forever. Let's go hackers!

@ihatehypebeasts@Bighec_236Know wtf you're talking about before you try and talk smack. The retro version had the ugly lines on the side. the OG pair didn't have lines. The white/red and final shot OG pairs had the lines but these were the first to release and they didn't have lines. They're so much better without the lines. fucking hypebeasts..

Still waiting on legitimate Black Toe 14s as well as the Indiglo and Oxidized Green pairs. Always thought it was odd that the 14s are, and have been, retroed but only 2 out of the 7 OG pairs (including the 3 lows) have ever had a proper retro. I remember there being a ton of early rumors about the 14s getting their OG pairs retroed along with some 10s and 17s and none of it came to fruition. I hope they fix that this year.

Just like the Practice Questions from last year. They put a regularish pair out first and then an almost all red pair out second. I own all three so far. If I'm lucky I'll get these too. At least I won't have to deal with Nike.com aka the place where you can't buy an extra pair of laces without a bot.

That pack launched right after the entire sneaker culture went to hell with the Space Jam release. I, like many others, was sold a pair online only to get an email at about 2 pm the next day (aka too late to get them anywhere else) saying, "Sorry, but we sold too many and you won't be getting your Xmas present." The kick was they could have just said so as this was before stuff sold out in seconds and pairs were available for many hours after release on Finishline.com. Then in January they drop the Varsity Red 6s and later the Varsity Red 6s. Then a couple of months later they drop the Infrared pack. Pure business genius to know after the Space Jam release that they had us over a barrel. They released the Varsity Red pairs before the pack was confirmed and people didn't pass on the Varsity Red pairs thinking there's no way they release that pack after releasing the Varsity Red pairs. I ended up selling my Varsity Red pairs on eBay. We've been over a barrel since.

With a shoe with 2 simple OG colorways that you're already bringing out to everyone who wants a pair, I think some new colorways, the Oregon State pair etc could be really nice. I'm hoping they can spread this out through 2014 because there are so many pairs already jammed into the end of 2013 and there are too many of these to fit into a small time frame already packed with must have Jordans and plenty of nice Reeboks, Penny and even the Converse Aero Jam.

I can see them marketing this with the so called "Powder Blue" 10s as a "Charlotte" pack since those Powder Blues are actually Charlotte Hornets. Other than that, it's really frustrating to see Jordan bring out constant garbage when there are so many OG 10s that people want and can't get. I get it with the 3-5s when you've done the OG colorways so many times but were talking about more than a handful of OG colorways for one model that are clearly wanted and have never been retroed. Doesn't make sense.

Why people are paid to blog about shoes and don't even have the OGs from his playing days down is beyond me....It's not like in 15 years when some poor fools are going to have to try and keep all the KD/Kobe/LeBron colorways lol. I mean there are literally 20-25 colorways for all 3 and almost every pair has more than one name to it. These guys have it easy now. It's like 5 or so OGs from each model after the Jordan I and then a couple of lows for the 2s, XIs, XIIIs and XIVs. I've been wondering about this forever....the "Jordan: History of the Franchise" that's on the right of every page on Sneaker News in a little black box with all the models up to the 2009s and the SB history below it....The 3s they have in that picture were never made were they?

@Da_Real_Big_Infinite With the barrage of 5s we got this year and the fact that there are 3 OG 6s we've never had retroed without a pack I'm going to be extremely disappointed if the Maroon and September Blues don't make it. If they weren't going to give us the Columbias with the proper Columbia blue sole this year they should have done some awesome low pack with some combo of the Snakeskins/the two REALLY OG (with a damn gum sole this time) IE lows/Concord/Bred lows we've seen. I'd sign up for the original IEs in OG form in a pack, the Concord/Bred lows in a pack or the Snakeskins by themselves before these Gamma Blues. Hard to believe the Cool Greys and Gamma Blues are making it before the Columbias. Also, they should have cut out several of the 5s they dropped this year and given us the Chrome/Aqua 8s like everyone said we were getting. That and the Lightning 4s. I'd also dig the CDP 2s and the OG lows as well.

If they're going to make these limited (and obviously they are and have been) they should be an auction only shoe like they did with the Air Mags. That would basically end reselling and maximize the amount made for charity. Basically they'd sell for what most of these will end up selling for on eBay, but the money would go to DB instead of resellers. Personally I wish they'd just keep making them until nobody would buy them and make a ton more money and we could all get a pair but we know that is NEVER going to happen.

@jhoward You do realize that people buying on the secondary market are scamming hardcore, right?

I'm sure some would have taken you up on the offer except for the fact that you could have bought them for $200 and never donated a thing and they'd be screwed. Tons of people write in saying they only have X much money but they really need X shoes for their dying loved one and to please help them. People really do pull that scam all the time.

I hate to say it but we're seeing too many Jordans right now...I'm all for OG colorways and classic shoes coming out but how many 3s/4s/5s do we need? There are a bunch of classics that we can't seem to get our hands on and on top of that they need to start dipping into the 16s and 17s and 23s or maybe bring some more great retro+ colorways back like the white flip 3s or lightning 4s etc if they have to keep bringing these out 24/7. The Fear Pack, the Bel-Air looking stuff, the elephant print 3Lab5, the ugly green glows are just over the top right now. Bring back some Hare 7s, the 10 City Pack, The Raging Bull 5 Pack, the Chrome and Aqua 8s, Columbia 11s ETC ETC. There are plenty of colorways they haven't dropped in a long time that they don't need to drop this many garbage non-OG colorways. Some are fine and not all will be good but it seems the vast majority are garbage...crimson 3s, Suns 8s, Celtics 1s, Photo Blue 9s. In an era when any Jordan sells out in 5 seconds these can't even sell out. I left all the 6s (September Blues/Maroons/Carmine/DMP pack(should without a doubt be the holiday jordan 11 next year) and great OGs with Nike Air coming out since I assume we'll get a healthy dose of 6s next year considering if you started collecting in 2011 you could have every OG colorway of the 3-5 by September this year and so many more..

This is an absolute RAPE job of these. I keep hearing about the, "if Iverson was on the All-Star team THIS is what they might have looked like!" angle. Well the truth is they freaking made an AMAZING red shoe for the game. It just never released in the USA and people have wanted it forever. On top of that they retro the navy pair and rape it as well. The soles is the wrong, color blocking is all messed up and the entire look/colorway/leather is ruined. They literally just dropped a perfectly OG pair of the black/gold ones and had everyone excited for the next 3 OG pairs (the REAL red and navy patent ones and then the white/red pair) and they come with this weak pair. What's the point in changing up an all-time classic like this? Jordan does it and keeps the years separate from all their retros but Reebok isn't at that level and people are going to want the real deal, not this. It makes zero sense at all. You were doing so well (minus the extremely way too limited Shaq Attaq release) Reebok. Get your head back in the game.

@seanlee3434 @hrbomber1113 Yeah man I totally agree. I think my biggest mistake is every time a shoe comes out that I like I buy it. Instead of thinking, "yeah I like those Foams and Kobes but I could get a pair of OG Jordans or some really rare and nice stuff for these regular releases". Also, because I'm disabled it's just a collection and never gets worn so I'm strict with sizes and have fallen into a trap of collecting packs and sets etc. It's not that I own any shoes I don't like, it's just that I should probably make a list of the top 100 shoes I want and work on that and anything that comes out on that list or close I get and let the regular stuff pass. Seems it's very difficult to be able to keep up with the massive retro drops, including Reebok killing my wallet, and get 5-10 pairs a month AND hit up eBay and get some OG versions. When I first got hurt it wasn't like I was told you're screwed. Everyone thought I'd be fine until the Mayo Clinic set it straight so I spent so much time collecting like I'm going to be wearing these soon and then switched halfway through to just a look at collection. Regardless, this is a really nice collection and I don't own a single LeBron. Not because he doesn't have awesome shoes but you just have to draw the line somewhere and if you're getting Jordans/Kobes/Pennys/Iversons/90s stuff/Pippen/Griffey etc you can't just collect them all.

It's so bitter sweet to look at collections like this for me. To have a collection like this you have to pretty much live in the right area, have a TON of money or ELITE connects. I'm a disabled guy in Kansas so that pretty much blows me out of the water for having the money to have so many OGs and rare pairs and obviously this isn't the sneaker Mecca of the world and there are basically no connections. I was out of the shoe game and was working on my degree and playing baseball and a brain injury knocked me out of life 5.5 years ago and just saw a select few shoes I had in the 90s and just got a few for nostalgia. Now I'm hardcore into it and have a pretty nice collection but it's impossible for me to take it to that next level of having the super rare stuff. Still cool to see people who can and aren't just total dbags who know the right person. Also, I see he has a huge size gap in his collection which must help as finding a 13 in some rare pairs is about impossible.

I can't believe they jacked up BOTH colorways. The logo is supposed to be gold. The reebok on the upper by the laces is supposed to be all gold and the sole is supposed to be much darker. On top of that they don't have the correct texture. It's all smooth compared to the OG. And that's just the navy ones. The red ones are missing the gold too. WTF are they messing these up for?

@Da_Real_Big_Infinite Agreed but lets stop this nonsense and go OG sbefore the new CWs come like Reebok is doing with the Shaqnosis and did with the Kamikaze. We haven't even seen the White/Home Sonics colorway yet have we?

I was only 11 so I might be mistaken, but weren't these called the "Charlotte Hornets" of the city pack?

Bring back ALL of the Air Max 98 models and BOTH Air Max 96s. I dunno why they drop a thousand 95s and 97s a year that never sell but won't drop two classic 96s and at least 2 and maybe 3 Air Max 98 models. Plus the underrated and awesome Air Max Deluxe. Get with it Nike.

As the old joke goes..."What's black and white and red all over?" The answer is a rape job of an old classic that should release in OG form with eggplant, gold and some sweet PE colorways that were around the league. This is just straight GARBAGE to me.

@Da_Real_Big_Infinite 100% in agreement. They pulled a Foamposite with the Hyperflights except they started going all patterns after they basically exhausted all the single color combos there were in the Foams and the Hyperflights had plenty of classy colorways to work with before going tiger print or putting an full length zoom air bag on the bottom and rainbowing the whole top out.

Very very nice. Great execution and they could get away with a black sole or an icy one and both are going to be clean. I hope this premium stuff doesn't make them insanely priced. Maybe they'll catch on since the superhero pack is down to about $100 and still sitting.

This really plays to the strengths of the Hyperflight. I'm glad Nike quit putting ridiculous patterns all over them and got back to what made them great to begin with. I personally only liked the Kobe Hyperflight of this year.

@Sneakdisser300 Yeah, it amazes me how the information is out on huge sites like footlocker but nobody including the sneaker blogs act like they have a release date.

Bring back the white/black OG pair as well before you start messing with some new colors.

 I want all 3 OG colors of the KB8 II in white, black and the AS purple PE, the Columbia XIs, white/red and black/white/red Pippen IIs, both the Penny and Pippen Nike Air Up PEs, the white/red, black/silver and white/silver Answer Vs and the black/white and white/black Nike Zoom GPs. I’d love to see some of the less heralded Penny kicks like the home and away Orlando Penny IVs and the Nike Flight 96 Olympic PEs as well as some more OG Pippen colored Nike Air More Uptempo like the white/red and Bred version and lastly a Griffey 3 retro with the great swoosh strap to finish it off.

@JeRz Hell yeah. I have every Jordan restocking and I'm hoping the exact same thing. Now if Nike restocks too...then I'm in trouble.

@KiddCP3 @hrbomber1113 Yeah that's what I meant. Thanks for the clarification as I'm sure some people would want to know the exact date. Loving the restocks so I won't have a tough time picking up these and the Black Toe 1s....hopefully

They already have a release date on the 25th...It was announced like 2 weeks ago on footlocker and Nike's websites. Get it together Sneaker News.

Or the white midsoles Fresh Water PE versions. Forgot those. So many awesome colorways and shoes tied to Griffey that get ignored. If you don't think Griffey shoes can sell that's one thing..but to drop dozens a year that look like bad fakes and leave OG classics untouched doesn't make much sense.

Bring the Volts back or how about dropping the underrated Griffey 3s for the first time? My Volts were defective and it's been almost impossible to find a legitimate size 12.5 again. Can't believe they keep dropping all these ugly colorways and weird mashups with 360 Air Max soles and we can't get the Griffey 3s or the Diamond Furys retroed even once. Even the Nike Griffey Total Max came misshapen and without the OG colors. Those were badass in OG form and extremely comfortable.

Allen Iverson was NEVER the best basketball player in the NBA and especially not 2001. Shaq AND Kobe were better not to mention Garnett and Duncan.

Damn...am I getting that old? Does nobody remember the black mesh playoffs or the all-star game sunshine yellow pairs? Those 2 and the black/white were vintage early 2000 with some Shox BB4s, the Alpha Project and Answer IVs. I'd cop all 4 OG colorways and some more PEs he wore as well.

Hell yeah bring em back...then the snakeskins and they REALLY need to retro the OG low IE black and red colorway with the gum sole. They've retroed them with the charcoal sole and those are nice, but they aren't OG. Bring em' all back.

ENOUGH. Bring back the damn OG Favre colorway. I know Brett and the Packers aren't tight anymore but what's the point in releasing all these colorways and not a mention of the colorway/player that made them famous? Link below for you youngins.

Everybody wanted them when they came out. Tuned Air was the new thing and I loved these and the Siroccos. The little hexagon with Tn or Tl  or Zm was great and defined an era.

@Da_Real_Big_Infinite  I honestly don't remember the last time they dropped an AI retro in actual DMX. The only Answer I retro was the 10th anniversary deal and it had fake DMX and both Answer IV retro runs haven't had legitimate DMX since then either so I seriously doubt these do.

I could be wrong but I really don't think these are OG. I remember the black/gold, white/red, patent navy and the unreleased patent red All-Star games. Can anyone show me a pic of him wearing these in game or an original pair?
