    Just numbers - 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

    I have an emotional attachement to those designs. The 3 (1988) I was in 8th grade and I continued getting them all throughout high school. I remember, me and another guy had this little competition on who would get them first...lol, I remember going into school and seeing that he had the Vs before me... so pissed..lol

    A lot of classics on your list. Only one that seems to not fit is the Chutney 13s, what’s your story with those.

    So Jordan never wore the Chutneys but it IS an OG colorway.  I was sooooo happy when they retrod them recently.  I was always a big fan of them.

    Cool, I like them also. Was able to pick them up at an outlet not to long ago. They were just the "which one of these is not like the other" on your list. You looking forward to 2019 "the year of the 4"?

    Nope.  The IV actually doesn't do it for me.  I am looking forward to the Concord XI on Christmas though.

    Some of my other favs of J's that I have never been able to pick up for a decent price...  I give you the Jordan VII Obsidian and Filbert.

    Yeah I screwed up...  I should have pounced when they first came out.  I figured they would drop in price but for whatever reason they never did.  Too rare I guess?

    Did you pick up the Fresh Prince Grape Vs? I thought about it, but the no laces were kinda gimmicky for me. Although I have seen the customs being done for laces.. so I might pick these up at some point. They are done perfect (NA on the back, material).

    Believe it or not I never got the love for the Grapes...  So no on that.  I actually had the Tor Bravo set x2 and wore the V's and they sucked so I sold both sets.  I sold them for $800 each.

    Used the set sold for $800!

    So one of my favorite shoes that I own is a House of Hoops exclusive.  I used to visit the Harlem HOH quite a bit to pick up things that were only coming out of that spot.  It was a "locals only" pretty much so super limited stuff came through there.

    One of the kicks I picked up were these Nike Vandals.  They were called "catch a cab" by sneakerheads but the official title of them were "For Love of The Game".  The reason I know that is because that is what it says on my receipt, lol.

    So here they are.  There is 3M material on it so when the flashbulbs go off the checkering pops.

    Great shoe.

    Here is a link on the shoe too.

    I figure there might be 100 of these if that?  Some shoes are so damn rare that no one knows about them.

    Enjoy

    My favorite Nike's ever were the Air Raid II Peace blacktop kicks -- "live together, play together." I bought enough pairs of those to last me five years, I think.

    This looks like a mash up of the Jordan vii&viii, Hurache and Black History Month shoes!

    I do like it though!

    lol, they are just damn cool. Fit nice, comfortable, and the tech of no lace tightening is cool, works great and does give your foot that "locked in" feeling. I'm just wearing them casually, but I would think they would be great on the court also.
