    I guess it's a good thing I don't like off-white for my shoes.  Didn't know they were in such high demand.  To each their own, I suppose.

    Anything red too.  Those usually are instant sell outs.

    So I’ve always been a huge fan of Jordan’s, but I’ve just finally been coming around to actually buying some. I scored those Fire Red Vs mentioned on the previous page. Awesome OG colorway on perhaps my favorite silhouette. I wasn’t able to get the Alternate Grape/Grape Ice Vs on the release date but I waited until they dropped a little bit on StockX and got them at a reasonable price. The OG Grapes are my favorite shoe of all time, and my favorite colors are purple and teal, so needless to say I love the colorway and can’t wait for them to arrive. 

    Some releases I’m looking forward to: Varsity Royal 3s, Alternate Bel-Air 5s, the purple Quai 54 VIs (assuming they get a wide release), the Off-White Bred IVs (I know, I know. Fat chance), any OG colorway of the 1,3,4,or 5s. 

    Any OG re-release there are usually plenty to go around.  The Quai sneakers I have yet to see release in any decent numbers here in the US.
    If these looked like this regularly I'd be all over them.  This is 3M with the lights out though...

    I'm surprised that any new colorways are hard to find unless they are collabs.

    I missed out on the GD kicks this weekend.  Wanted those...

    Another color I don't want on my kicks.  Looks like I'm in business lol

    I hope you're joking?  Infrared Vi's, Fire Red IIII's, Bred XI's, XII Cherry, Flu games, XXI Red Suede.

    Some serious heat here and I didn't name them all.

    Oh and the Carmine VII's!!!
  • RiotZactRiotZact Posts: 5,309
    Haha yes I’m joking. And aren’t the Carmine’s a VI colorway?

    Yes, I mistakenly added an I.

    Vi bubble, VII no bubble.

    Something that gained huge momentum was the Raging Bull pack with the red suede V's.  Those sat on shelves then one day BOOM.  You couldn't find them.  I had bought 2 DMP packs and sold them both for a nice profit.

    I think they are retroing the Carmines early next year. I’ll be all over that for sure. 
  • bbiggsbbiggs Posts: 5,258
    I don't like an all red shoe is what I meant.  Obviously I like a certain amount of red on J's.  The OG 4, 5 and 6 are my all time faves.  But an all red shoe...nope.

    It seems every 5 years you get a full retro or a partial.  They did a reverse colorway a few years ago and then the DMP before that.

    I think we are due for an XI Cool grey release.  Been a while for that one.  10 years now?

    I'm not a fan of all red but I love those 2 and I used to wear these:
    Air Jordan XX3 23 PREMIER 7052008 BLACKVARSITY RED-WHITE 318376 061 Size 95
    Not ALL red but they are still fire and one of my all-time fav jordans that he didn't wear.

    Is anyone else a sucker for 1 lows? Obviously the highs have more appeal but I think a lot of people don’t remember/realize that the low actually is an OG silhouette. I like that they fly under the radar so they aren’t crazy expensive and don’t sell out immediately, but one con to that is that I can’t seem to find any concrete info on when they actually drop? I want these 2 pairs really bad but the articles just say that their “coming soon”.


  • bbiggsbbiggs Posts: 5,258
    I want those black ones!  Wow.  Please share the drop date if you find it and I'll do the same.  ISO!!  :lol:

    Years ago I had bought these in Black and White.  I swore that I was going to wear these on my wedding night.  I am never getting married so oh well...

    Those are pretty slick! These were my first, and possibly favorite pair of Jordan’s that I ever owned. Unfortunately they were trashed and now they are $350 on StockX.

    Blazers are hot.  Cool ass kicks.  I had a pair of "Jackie Robinsons".

    I think I’m going to have to get these on Saturday if I can. Most people like the brown ones better (no US release date announced for those yet), but I’m a sucker for purple. This means that I’ll likely have to skip the Alternate Bel-Air Vs the following week, which sucks, but considering that I just bought 2 pairs of Vs and I’ve never owned a pair of VIs I think it’s the right call.

    I suppose if I strikeout at retail price then I’ll wait and try for the Bel-Airs, then if I miss those just go with whatever pair is going for cheaper on the resell market.

    I just saw that these will be offered on SNKRS.  I think this is the first time the Quai54's were offered in the states!  I'll be trying for these too.
