Organization day, AJ edition 😓

View attachment 1623720
Looking good. I did the same this weekend and bought 6 more drop front boxes from the container store. I have 24 total so after the last 3-4 fill up, I’m going to have to get rid of a pair before buying anything new. I still have all my old dress shoes/boots taking up space even though I haven’t worn any of them in the past year but will probably pick up again soon once I start going back into the office more often.

yeah i got some of those boxes things incoming. Stupid, but NYC air turns everything 1 shade darker every 90 days, even just sitting there. Especially just sitting there.

I think one can probably guess my age by seeing the high concentration of 4-5-6. Those were my high school years 😬
never got to wear J's in high school, but I made up for it and bought several pairs of the 99 IV retros when they came out. those were probably the best made retros of all time.

I think almost everyone universally agrees the 2s suck, i never see them re-issued or worn by anyone.

I used to like 7s a lot but lost may liking and sold them. 12 still one of my fave markups but i can't imagine wearing them with anything just feel bulky

1, 4, 5 for me these days from jordan
2's are clean. If they made a nice quality retro, I would wear them. Most of the 2 retro's have been terrible quality.

+1. Sambas were as fancy as I was allowed.


somewhat ironic since I played ice hockey and wore those awful but way cool looking Nike skates. They were literally like wearing mud while trying to do a basic skating drill.

I remember saving for months for my first pair of jordans (white 5s) and shlepping to the other side of town to buy them and save $10 😅

About time sir lol…I’m currently in the lookout for the lows 👀
It's a shame they decided to shrink the size of the swoosh on the re-release. I'm still buying a pair though.

First couple wears were rough but mine are finally starting to break in.
They feel great once you break them in. I haven't taken them off since Saturday.

2's are clean. If they made a nice quality retro, I would wear them. Most of the 2 retro's have been terrible quality.
I can't wait for them to release a proper retro. I still have my pair from the 2004 release.

I'd love a pair of "premium" leather 2s...kinda surprised there haven't been any rumors given the current retro hysteria.

I remember the craze behind some pairs in like '95 to '97 or something. Kids Foot locker for this homeboy, but I still had no cash.

A cousin of mine got the blue Kukikis and I was in envy for a year. Still am about the shoes, though he OD'ed years ago, so maybe the shoes were too much for me to handle.

and, having never been tied to the "heritage" of some of the classic elements of J's ... I can confidently say Nike can drop the damn animal print on every pair of 3's. Just do it.
