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.

Do them in actual Hornets colorways or hey, how about bringing back the two, never retroed, OG lows?

I'm 99% sure these weren't even an OG colorway...anyone have any pics of OG Bred Lows or knows? All I know are the Almost all white with some grey, one with some red and another with navy. That's all i've ever seen. Any help??

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.

@Pnut414 These would show up online at Eastbay and Footlocker with pairs being RETURNED and unworn. Anything pre-Space Jams was normal and civilized. Even the CDP packs weren't that hard. After the Space Jams it all went to hell.

In the pics they look purple which reminds me of a Hornets colorway. I'm so glad NO gave that name up so Charlotte could get the Hornets back. Now if only they worked out a deal to let Utah give the Jazz back to NO....that Baseketball scene is hilarious...

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.

@Criplize THANK YOU. Why can't Sneaker News get just ONE writer that knows their OG shit? They had an opportunity to set everyone straight with the Bred vs Playoffs 2 years ago and just kept saying Bred, Bred, Bred.
Were these available in the OG run? I can't find a decent comprehensive list of OG Low 1s

I like these better with this view, but we'll see. So much of his past heat that still needs to be brought back out. Same goes for the Penny line. Flight 96 Olympic/Penny 1 Home/A proper Nike Air Up retro/plus the underrated 4s. I'd love a Home Pippen 1/Both the Home and Away Bulls Pippen 2/a select few 3s and 4s/Bred More Uptempos and White/Reds as well/Uptempo 97 Home/Nike Air Way Up PEs/Nike Air Way Up Home version without the black on the heel and all his early heat like the Nike Air Maestro 2s/Air Flight Lite etc

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.

So the blog that just told us the White/Black 1s WEREN'T OGs is going to give me the complete guide to buying Jordans this season? Why the hell can't they come out and tell people some really tough stuff to get will be a general release or some tough to get Jordans aren't OGs. How can a blog know the Grey Toe XIIIs were OG SAMPLES but at the same time not know those 1s were OGs?

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.

So the only pair of OG VIIs that haven't dropped since 2011 and they're going to f#@k them up that bad? I guess in 2016 they'll drop the Aqua VIIIs (aka the only pair of OG VIIIs that haven't dropped since 2013) in full snakeskin leather. People love these shoes already. The hard part is done. You did it. Hare's are guaranteed sellouts as they are. Why was there even a meeting about changing anything? Just drop them as they've always been. You'd think JB would realize how bad they are at making new things with their collection of non-retro garbage and just leave classics alone.

What that hologram midsole looks like in real life is absolutely what will determine if these are awful or good pickups. I got a pair offline just to see and I'll send them back if the hologram sucks in person. If it was just straight black it would be nice. The 1s and 9s of the Baron pack were both very well done.

@_DeLi_ And the White/UNC and White/Royal plus the OG Lows and we're set on all the OGs! Well..if they released the black patent leather pair from 2013 and from Japan back in the day to more than 15 people anyway. Oh, and why was the Bulls colorway that released the same day as the first OG Nike Air branding Knicks colorway in January of 2013 a regular version with the Jumpman and not the Nike Air?
3 months ago on Air Jordan 1 “Laser” – 30th Anniversary
Yeah, brand new as in an OG colorway that has already retroed before as well. What is wrong with this site? If you don't know just don't mention it. The Penny 1s releasing tomorrow that first weren't OG and then were OG PEs for the All-Star game when they were worn plenty and OGs, the Nike Flight Light High White Men Can't Jump "OGs". That's just off the top of my head from the last couple weeks or so.
3 months, 1 week ago on adidas Crazy 1 “All Black”
@RT5 there were silver as well. They retroed with a clear sole and had a black sole originally. They can be seen in the pic on this page where he's very young and dunking.
I don't have to think about the Penny signatures in these colors. They've made all but the 2s in red colorways. The Chicago 1s, the White/Red 3s, there are White/Red and Bred 4s, Red Eagle and Lil Penny 5s as well as the Metallic Red Foams. Most of Kobes over the years have red colorways as well.

@SherlockFoams Dude, I know. I hammered them on this from the start when they weren't even calling them OGs. Now they're OGs that didn't release. The classic Orlando everyone knows, these and an almost all white pair with a blue swoosh and a few other touches were the 3 pairs. There were no PEs. There was basically an all black, an all blue and a mix in the Orlando pair. I understand all the confusion about what Jordan 1s were OGs with it being basically a first and a massive amount of colorways and different heights, but we're talking 3 well worn pairs from the mid-90s....crazy.

They really aren't bad at all but what's up with the "Question" logo on Answers? And can we get proper Answer 1 retros of the Navy, White/Red and Red All-Star colorways with real SUPER comfy DMX 10 tech? I know they dropped some wannabe Navy OG and All-Star colorways but they missed a lot on them. This isn't JB where differences will be overlooked on retros. I'd also love the underrated Answer 5 to come back out and the Answer 4 Finals colorway as well. Lots of good stuff to bring out. Good job so far on Shaq and Kemp but they need more work on the Iverson retro plan. Still pissed I missed the Shaq Attaq Home pair because packershoes.com deleted every account and I couldn't log in and make a new account in time. I was on the road and planned it so I'd get home as soon as possible but right at release time and it totally hosed me on my Shaq collection.
