    Jordan I, III, IV or nothing.


    FTFY [​IMG] ...just kidding. I like most of the ones you listed, but probably would only wear those three nowadays. and this is coming from someone who wore black/red XIIIs and white/blue Penny IIs almost everyday in high school(way before Nike even considered retroing either one). But really, spizikes are enh. The black/red ones aren't that bad, but only because they resemble IVs. Way to shit on the Jordan brand Nike. Go get the upcoming Yeezys instead lol.

    BTW, the JS Wings remind me of espo AF2s.

    J4s look a little too robotic Spider-Man for me. What is a nice colorway that you recommend?

    Anyone see these in person, your thoughts? Regular Converse sizing? It's either these or leather Rod Lavers if I can find them. Other suggestions?

    I have these and went with my usual Converse size (sized down 1).

    My 3s just came in. I really, really like them. It was a little awkward at first since I wear Vans, Chucks, and Lanvins. But I'm growing to really like them. I also got lucky with sizing. I'm an 8.5 across the board and so I went true to size. Eeeeee..I can't wait to get black cements.

    By the way, should I leave the cardboard inserts inside the sneaker while I have them in storage?

    ^^^ Shouldn't matter but it can get rid of some of the creases so it looks fresh everytime you bust them out.

    ^ Merci! Looking for my next pair and I found a very, old-school picture of the 4s. I quite like it in this context and J pulls it off really well. [​IMG]

    BTW, those are the ones I was wearing in the pic I posted, mine I just a more later retro version.

    I can't believe these Wolf Grey V's practically sold out on Eastbay. [​IMG]

    ^ I'm not really a fan of those 5s but I understand their appeal. I just wish they were more colourful. Next purchase is going to be J and your 4s, black Spi'zikes, or infrared 6s.

    ^^^ sold out really quickly. I like them, but the suede & clear gum bottom are all signs that point to a shoe I won't be able to wear very frequently. Great supplemental shoe for $200, I suppose.

    Try and get the True Blues III if you can.

    ^ Yeah, somone was supposed to proxy True Blues for me back in the Baller thread but apparently, he won't be able to. I'd honestly pick up black cements before true blues though (mostly because they're too similar to my white cements). I'd consider these but again, would probably like it better in a different colorway: [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'd be pretty happy if I can pick-up a pair of true blue and black cements this year.

    I have enough concords so I am not too worried about them.

    All these Jay's are taking me back to my NT days. [​IMG]
    Kind of wish I hadn't sold most of my Jordan heat.
    At least I still have my beloved metallic 5's.[​IMG]
