To clean that up a little, it's not to say they wouldn't sell or there isn't a demand. He's the greatest player currently in the NBA.

I think it would be tacky. Jordan tried and I don't think his retros really took off until he retired from the Bulls? Probably should fact check that but naw, I don't think LeBron should yet.

I don't get the Chicago shout-out. Were any of the players that wore these shoes on the Bulls? If not, isn't this really just a backhanded reminder of MJ's dominance?

Frankly, any air Jordan, especially that came out while MJ was still in Chicago, should have a "bred" colorway if it doesn't already.

I like these. I do second what YellowingSucks says too. Customs are just that, custom. You don't go to Brooks Brothers and get a shirt with someone else's initials on it.

I know I am in the vast minority here, but 11's pretty well played out to me. I love the design and the classic colorways, but frankly I find the retros to be too narrow, and the patent leather is cut lower, so it hits an odd spot on my foot. I would rather see some other things that I haven't seen 100 times already, like the AM'96 or even the Air Metal Max.

Never understood why these get no retro love. I personally like the 96's better than the 95's. If the Metal Max version ever drops..... sweet baby Jesus!

The infamous 'BRed' colorway looks the best to me so far. That's the safe and cliche answer, I know, but if I was to buy a pair, those would be it.

 @jason_ess Haha right on. I'm not up on Reebok like I probably should be, I just know a while back there were some Iverson's re-released, I believe it was the first 'Answer's, that did not have the original DMX tech in them and people were pissed. So I was afraid it was a trend with retro DMX sneakers.

 @abuddadustflix  @Cth724  @DreamChaser I hear you. My point was simply at some point the Jordan line will be our generations Chuck Taylor. Probably not in the immediate future, but I mean the tech in Jordans is already pretty much outdated for the court in comparison to all the high speed low drag stuff coming out now. They have already pretty much moved into the lifestyle shoe category, not to say people don't still wear them on the court, just saying they aren't wearing them for the performance as much as they are the nostalgia.

Not currently better than the Jordan line. Time will tell. At some point Jordans will become like how people look at Chuck Taylors now.

Best thing I have seen lately that Nike has done to hit resellers in the face was the Jordan restock at HoH this past Friday. Think about that, you are a reseller, trying to sell your Jordan XII Obsidian at $250, and Foot Locker just got restocked..... HAHAHAHA, you just got stuck, dirty reseller. Here's what I don't get about resellers. I know it's not all shoe stores, but at the HoH in Columbus, if there is a major release, they hand out numbered tickets on a random day before the release date. Then on release day you show up at 8am, line up in ticket order, and cop. So as a reseller, you have to find out when tickets are dropping, stand in line for that. Then go back the next day, and stand in line for that. To get one pair (depending on how many of your 'staff' is with you). So all that, to cop a pair of shoes at roughly $175 ($160+tax) to try and resell them on average of $250. Two days of lines and all the hassall to make $50/pair? And that's on average, on a bad day you make $20, although I understand on a good day (say the South Beach LeBrons), that's hundreds of dollars a shoe. But still, there's maybe one/two of those kind of kicks a year and the heat is turned way up in terms of exclusivity and EVERYONE wants them. So I just don't get it, hopefully reselling sneakers is a passing fad.

 @heezer  @azgame I can back you up. At least at Foot Locker. Same deal, and they (HoH) just got restocked with the Jordan XII Obsidians/Cool Grey, Military Blue IV, and Olympic 6 and straight were not allowed to buy them. They could get the GMP but had to pay full price, not sure if they had to do the ticket shenanigans or not.

As much as I wanted these I was derailed by the House of Hoops restock on Friday. Looking forward to hopefully copping the VII at least on the interwebs.

In my opinion Reebok is going about it backwards. They need to get people back on the hook before they do all the super limited releases like they did with the Iversons. I am all for some Reebok retros, if anything to shake Nike's tree a little and force some competition.
