Bio not provided
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.

These were an OG colorway with a black sole back then though.

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.
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Sneaker News NINE@NINE: Black Foams
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.

@LAMdoe Shooting Stars pack my man. 95% of people are selling theirs as they just wanted to Foamposites, but they're both awesome.

I hope they bring back the UNC/White and Royal/White Jordan 1 OGs that are blocked like the White/Black pairs that are coming this year. After that all we need are the metallic silver/purple/blue/orange/green/red collection.
1 month ago on True Blue: A Look Back at Blue Air Jordans
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.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Another Look at the Nike Air Foamposite Pro “Elephant Print”
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.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Nike Kobe 9 EM “Metallic Silver” – Release Date
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.
I hope already having the details doesn't make these pointless. I can always return them though and the 14 pairs of Kobe 9s haven't failed me yet.
1 month, 4 weeks ago on Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low – White – Black – Wolf Grey
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.
1 month, 4 weeks ago on “China” Nike Kobe 9 EM
@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.

They're called the All-Star and Away colorways. They're both OGs...looks like the dude writing it is one of those that WASN'T around to remember the OG KBII.

@Da_Real_Big_Infinite Yeah, they look like a flea market pair of He Got Games. Bring back both the low colorways before this trash comes out.

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.

Both are musts for me. I dunno if it's the pics but the parts that look like carbon fiber on the Ferrari pair are supposed to be like a champagne color on the black toes. I had them when they first came out and still have a second OG and they've always had that slightly gold tint. So they're kind of off...still have been missing these for awhile
Retro the 3s already and bring back the old school Volt 1s. It's impossible to find a 12.5 in them.

All of this makes me wonder why Nike hasn't been cashing in on the Grinch colorway? Especially with how similar the Kobe line is compared to the LeBron. I got both the OG Grinch and South Beaches off Eastbay.com OVER THE PHONE and barely trying...that's how much the sneaker game has changed.

I wish they'd stop the Concord nonsense so they'd be easier to get for people like me who just like them for more than a nickname. On the other hand...wtf is Nike/JB doing? June is absolutely out of control. The Nike Gold Elite collection, 2 Lance Mountain X Jordan 1s, 3 Lil Penny Posites, white/varsity red OG Jordan 2s, Family Forever Jordan 1 High OGs, Cigar and Champagne Jordan 6s, Jordan 11 Low Infrared/Speckles, What the KD 6s, LeBron 11 South Beaches, LeBron 11 Low Floridians, Kobe 9 Elite Influence and now these "Concord" Foams. That's just too much. Considering how minimal last weekend was they really should have moved some stuff to there.

@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.
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Family Forever” – Release Date
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite And you KNOW those Hares are coming next year since all 4 other OG 7s have dropped since 2011. That'll make 1-9 and 11-13. Are we really going to have to wait a decade for some 16s and 17s? Or 4 more years for all those awesome 10s they're holding back?
what's left? unc/white, royal/white and the metallic silver/blue/green/purple/orange/reds? Anyone have more than that left?
