    Before everyone kills me. Here are like a few things that I'd like to use to my defense.

    The early Jordans are just as classic as some of the other SF approved sneakers. Maybe not on a Converse level but if you want to talk classic some of them have their role in 'classic'.

    And I can't speak for most of the newer Jordans but seriously I've hopped on over to that 'baller sneaker thread' and some of them are a lot worse than the early Jordans.

    And the whole 'belong in a gym' thing... Same argument for Boat shoes, Workwear... bla bla bla.

    And don't get me wrong, I'm not defending all Air Jordans but I think people are just quickly dismissing these when some clearly have their place in history and some look pretty good and are a lot better than that baller sneaker thread.

    After all this time on SF there are still some (I'm thinking Jordans 1-5) that I would wear given the right colorway.

    Do you have any real interest in any of these nonsensical threads you start?

    Which also both suck, just like Jordans. There is a guy in the library here wearing green white and yellow jordans. They look pretty damn bad. I see lots of asian chicks wearing bizarro colourwayed jordans, they look bad too. This is the wrong forum, you're looking for HYPEBEAST.

    sadly, you just won't find too many people who could actually appreciate jordans on this forum.

    personally, i am huge fan (although not so much with the retroes) of jordans, especially of the v's and xi's. there's a lot of history behind each of the shoes...
