I took one of my senior pictures in these in 1996, I loved these. I'll try and scoop them up again when they come out.


I still have my InstaPump inflator. My dad hooked it up to an air tank that I kept in my room to refill my shoes to avoid buying new CO2 cartridges. It serves no purpose anymore other than to just take up space.

@jason_ess @NewbombedTurk  I always remember is sticking out very slightly from the back, almost flush with the back of the area. That hole in the picture looks recessed slightly to me with no button. It could be the angle, either way I hope they put the air bladder in there, unlike they did with the 180's

Doesn't really look like the air release button is in this picture.

I had these back in the day, I think I wore them once. I didn't want anyone making fun of me.

@youarereallydumb @NewbombedTurk Similar pattern or not, not everyone would look at that, and make the connection. Nike using a material on two or three different shoes is nothing new, whether Tinker designed it, or Nathan VanHook. I never looked at that shoe once, and thought about the Yeezy 2.


You're lame if you can sit there and tell me that people are going to buy this shoe simply because of who designed it. They'll even tell people "The same guy that designed these designed the Yeezy 2"

Yes, please let everyone know that there's a "connection" to the Yeezy 2, so they'll be sold out in seconds, and resold for 3x retail.

I had the maroons in 8th grade, had to wait till they went on sale get them too. No way I'd be able to wait that long to get them if they retro them.

@hozezae I knew that because I have both the 2000s and the 2010s. I never said they were exactly the same, I said closer than the 2014. Reading comprehension escapes you.


I'm 36 years old, I had the 1's when there was only the 1's, so I was around too when they first came out. The more the retro a show the further it gets from the OG. It's like making a copy of a copy of a copy, it's never the same.

@kcookrocks @hozezae I handed a pair of white/pink ones back to the guy at Finishline, and walked away from them on Saturday. Like I said before, the pink doesn't bother me as much as the shape of the ankle. Compare a pair of 2014s and even 2010s, and they're different. For me being a favorite feature of the shoe, it killed it for me.


It'll be just like the Bamboo XX8, all I saw was how ugly they were....Yet they sold out in minutes, just like any other hyped up Jordan.

@hozezae I know what Infrared is, and I like that it's a bright red, the problem is the 2014s aren't red, they're PINK.


I have the black 2000's and the Infrared Pack, those reds are way closer to OG than the pink they're trying to push on us this time around. It's a valid complaint that the red isn't even red this time.

@TheJordanVault @NewbombedTurk The Pinkfrared I could have handled to a point, but the ankle "bubbles" on them is all wrong. It doesn't bulge out anywhere near what previous releases did. The second I pulled them from the box, that's the first thing I noticed next to the pink blinding me.

Yes, please retro the Maroon VI's so you can mess them up like you did the Infrared VI's. I was looking forward to 2014 and the VI's, but now that I've seen them in person, I'm highly disappointed with what they think is passable for a VI.

At 7:04 CST they were sold out. I added them to my cart by 7:00:30 minimum, and they still managed to be gone.


All this hype and bullshit for a shoe that went clearance, and sold for as cheap as $40 a few years ago. Now normal people have to scramble to try and find them for retail.

I got these in 6th grade, because my mom wouldn't let me get the Jordan IVs. These were the closest thing I could get to them IVs, because she was scared I was going to get jacked for my J's.


I loved these shoes, I can't wait to get another pair 23 years later

These were my first pair of Jordans in 1st grade, I'd love to have another pair nearly 30 years later, but I'm afraid that it'll be close to impossible to get for retail.

It's worth what someone is willing to pay for it, and since they're still for sale, they're obviously not worth $7k

I guess sarcasm is hard to get in text form. I know these cost nothing to make. It's all about demand, and the people who will never stop buying no matter the cost.

We knew the second the AJ3 88's sold out in minutes for $200, that they were gonna start jacking up prices further.
