  • Realballer

  • Fresh Water

    No Way! This suede shit is not happening… lol I'd rather cod some OG's for double the retail price of these!

  • Jay man

    These are not suede thank you they look like the stuff on the nubuck 12s

  • Angel

    Hot shoe but the yellowing makes them undesirable

  • Southpaw

    These make the BINS look even better….and makes the 07s great and 2000 retros perfect.

    I love the V’s and I’ve had 4 pairs. Retros from recent years have made a significant departure from the OG V’s and their retros in 99/00. The 3M tongues on the older releases were sewn on fabric, now they are a 3M coated synthetic pad. I’ve got a pair of the AJF 5 lows and that’s where I first noticed the deleterious difference. You see, the sewn 3M took years of abuse but the new 3M coating rubs off. It also gets scuffed easily by the lace locks, which is a pain in the ass since the shoes look dope with them on. That said, I’m waiting excitedly for these, as well as the Grey Wolf’s (Wolves?).

    OT, This year is also a good year for the VII’s. The Bordeaux’s were the first pair I had when I was young, I’m ecstatic that JB is finally retroing them! The build quality on the Orions is good, though I wonder if the white will withstand more than a light thrashing…. That said, the Cardinals are gonna be so nice too. You know I’m right!

  • Dear Brand Jordan

    Stop ruining the dreams of many people. You are like parents having to break the news there is no Santa every time you kill another shoe. I will rock my 00s and 06s till the next retro, thanks.
