@Biga173rd I Totally agree 100%.  The line up alone is a joke for simply buying sneakers.

@jayrye I totally agree a continuation of the XX8 again with pieces from the cement 3 elephant print with a close shape of the 14's including the 23 on the heel just in a different font.

I like the woven type material but am disappointed in the design aspect of these XX9's.  The Air Jordan shoe from the 1's through 23's all had a unique design to each and everyone from inspirations from a P51 fighter plane(V's), Jordan's favorite ferrari (XIV's), jazz music (17's), a stealth fighter (XV's) and so on.  After delaying the XX9's by a year I am disappointed.

@ayochaser I agree.  Making the elephant print from the 3's over used.

I was wondering how someone already has picked up a pair of Jordan Future in the BRED colorway even before the March release.  They aren't even the first colorway release, I thought it was the lime green color.

I will give you my opinion mikeylab from someone wearing Jordans since I was 13.  It will be my honest opinion.  As a Jordan fan, sneaker head, collector I am one of those who back in the day always and will love NIKE AIR JORDANS.  I always got excited of the 2 main  releases one in February because of Michael Jordan's birthdate and the other around October/November the start of the regular NBA season, not like today where you can get a retro almost every month.  As I kid my parents gave me Jordans on my birthday in October so I was always excited about the new model coming out.  Up until SLAM Magazine came out in 1994 you never new what they looked like.  After SLAM released its first issue in 1994 I began another collection.  Also when you came into the store believe it or not you never had to line up.  When my Mom bought me me 4's, 5's, 6's and on I never lined up.

Anyways sorry to bother you with my life but my point was every Jordan from the 3's and on were always amazing in design and quality.

With these JORDAN FUTURE I understand the combination of the fly-knit technology becasue of what is "IN" right now.  In other words go with the fad. 

Just like when Reebok came up with the "PUMP" gimmick Nike actually followed suit with their version which I believe was worn by now retired NBA legend, hall of famer and champion David Robinson.

During the early days of the  Air Jordan was only 1 technology for the longest time the NIKE AIR POCKET.  Air Jordan didn't follow the popularity of the Reebok Pump and have an Air Jordan Pump.

My main problem with the Future is this Fly-Knit is not the future but the NOW!!!  A lot of the running shoes have these and so will the new KOBE BRRYANT 9's next month.  But I am so disappointed in the FUTURE AIR JORDAN because of the lower design of the Air Jordan XI's.

To me the previous model XX8 was more of a future design than these current FUTURE JORDANS.  I do understand my Jordan's very well and know the zippered sleeve technology used on the XX8 was not the first.

I hope that answers your question mikeylab.  Simply put they glued the FLY-KNIT upper with and XI lower,

I totally agree 100% but some of the other colorways are so bad case and point the 3lab5 in the all elephant print.

I hate when Nike comes out with crazy colors like this Air Jordan 3 Powder Blue.  When Michael Jordan played his signature shoes always had 3 colorways, a white model at the beginning of the season, a specific color for the all-star game and an all black model for the remainder of the season and playoffs.  Just another money making scheme for Nike.  Hate these powder blue 3's.

Just wanted to comment on these so called rare Air Jordan's.  In regards to these Air Jordan 3Lab5 there is too much happening.  The tongue could have been kept like the original, the reflective tongue that is.  The plastic grill should have been kept that clear plastic like the originals again as well as the plastic the laces go through.  Other than that I like the finish on the entire shoe.  I prefer these over the previous 3lab5.

I agree 100% with LUX09NC.  These days shoe companies are simply milking their customers with stupid releases of an iconic shoe such as the Air Jordan and making an entire shoe out of one part of another.  The elephant print on the Air Jordan 3's is what made the shoe different among other brands.  When you ask me what I like of the Air Jordan 3 it is the small piece of the print on the heel and toe.  I personally would never buy these all elephant print Air Jordan's.  It is like the "weather man" and "thermal" foamposites.  Those tow pairs especially the thermal look like a wonen's time of the month rather than a thermal reading.

Shows you just because you make tons of money that you have any taste.  These foamposites look like shit.
