It still doesn't feel like they've recaptured that SB magic from the early 2000's.  Oh well, I guess they're making a conscious effort.

Dating back to the 90's, I've never really been a fan of the 9's (with the exception of the charcoals), but some of these really have the potential to make it on my radar come this holiday season.

 @LadariusSimonton  @Shoeguy93  @CheckMyDope Actually it's ONE pair of the AJ 3's that's been confirmed, and it's a new colorway.  I doubt all those colors are coming back in 2014.  J/b might use the 5 releases in 2012 as  a reason to put the 4's on an extended hibernation.

 @BiscoeTheBoss  @Shoeguy93 If Jordan Brand was concerned about our collections, they'd go Broke!  They're more concerned with their profit (as any successful business should be).  Every release leaves thousands empty handed due to various financial and/or other priorities.  Coming back every couple of years to recoup  that money from those that missed out makes perfect sense.  I hear where you're coming from, but I have to agree with J/b and Nike......

 @RDogg23 I doubt it!  After these drop in early December (as speculated by some sites), the 11's will follow and then the focus will be on 2013's 5's, 13's and possible 8's.... Last year, the last pair of  3's to drop was the Black flips around the beginning of December, then that was the last we heard of 3's(until next years crimsons at least).

Leather is suppose to crease and conform to your foot due to it's durability!  That's how you know whether you have "Leather" or "pleather".  Just a little FYI for ya.

I received both my under grad and MBA in business, so from a business point of view I think it makes perfect sense.  At the moment, the Culture/Market is HOT!  To Nike, I say "if sneakerheads wanna buy kicks when times are tough (Recession), leave no stone unturned!   Get what you can get while you can; as long as the money is still out there".

 @GyanShieldsdad It all depends who thinks it's a "Big Problem".  As long as Nike is making their money back and some, it's all good and fair business.  In a perfect world, pre-ordering would work!  However in life, nothing ever works without it's flaws.  It's not a problem or an issue for Nike's higher ups until murders start to become the norm followed by congressional hearings on C-span, ABC, and NBC news.  When that type of publicity hits Nike and their Stock, you'll see some real change.  For now, this division known as the "Urban sneaker community" isn't worth any of the precious boards time, only our hard earned dollars.

I think ya'll reaching a bit!  You guys aren't necessarily known for dropping ground breaking news like Modern-Notoriety, Counterkicks, and Sneakernews.com.  So with that said, where'd you obtain this information? Today's news has been about the fire red fives, Bred 13's and black and royal blue 1's.  Not one of those sites including Theclosetcollectors mentioned anything about Grapes.

Date: May 14, 1995

For Game 1 & 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Michael Jordan turned heads and broke necks breaking out the “Concord” Air Jordan 11. Repeating history, these shoes were swiftly banned because of a uniform violation since the rest of the Bulls were wearing blacked out sneakers. Game 3 MJ took on Penny wearing his shoe, the Nike Air Flight 1, but for Game 4 in front of the home crowd, Jordan broke out a shoe that would be later referred to as the “Space Jams”. ?Though the shoes did technically sport black treads on the bottom of the sole, the shoes did rock a royal blue Jumpman and clear sole just like what we would later see in his Silver Screen debut.

 @SirRocco But that's how it all began. I'm 28, and back in the 90's/ early 2000's that's how we chose our kicks.  We enjoyed the looks, compliments and the ability to turn heads at school, the mall, movies, and social gatherings.  What's wrong with the younger generation today doing the same?  You want History, go to the Library, get a book on sports history, or turn the channel to ESPN Classic!   All I'm saying is let the young heads today do their thing!

You all better get use to this raffle system.  Word from my corporate offices "Finishline" is, if the Bred/Playoff 11's release is successful (using this system), we can expect this method for 2013 Jordan and Foam releases.  Oh, I called Nike's customer service yesterday and spoke to one of the reps and inquired on the feedback they received from the GMP release, and she said they (both retailers and Nike) were quite pleased.  I asked her how they came to that conclusion, she responded "No injuries, No robberies, No BAD PRESS = SUCCESS"Nike Raffle and Twitter RSVP coming to a retailer new you soon! 2013..........................

I don't resell sneakers, but I'm smart enough to know the "Recession is still in Session".  As a business major who also holds an MBA, I can't knock the hustle.  My man sold both of his Galaxy's for $2200 and I couldn't blame dude at all!  IMO

The soles have to be either black, that shade of green, or the shade of the shoe for these to be a PERFECT!  Icy blue soles don't work for every pair of foams.
