    Maaan looking at these shoes and seeing that they are coming out is crazy! Being an 80’s baby these joints are classics. Lets you know that JB isn’t doing to well selling his other products, but at the same time he is listening to the street and giving y’all what y’all wanted so have fun copping! Got the ones that dropped a couple years ago so I’m goood.

    But a Wednesday?

    And online only?

    C’mon man!

  • http://theshoegame.com LG

    Online only is going to make this more harder to get…100 million people online at the same DAMN! time.

  • Guess Who?

    Figured they’d do something like this make ‘em extremely limited and what not but hey at least the asg pack drops the week after

  • Tas423

    What these suckers don’t know Jordan is on the bottom of the shoe not nike

  • Big Mike

    Damn , I done sold my 2011 Jumpman Airs thinking these were dropping.

  • AlSneaks

    I’m still mad at the price tag, but it is what it is.

  • Sek

    They should’ve just dropped as a QS with no release date.

  • Towelie

    Dang I was hoping to see suckers lining up and getting trampled over.

  • http://www.theshoegame.com Kole

    Trying to make me broke $200. Ha if they think people are going to get a big buy. And if that only online thing is true. Two ha’s for that.
    What up with that????

  • Royal “no longer call me” swag

    I never can buy kicks on line on release dates due to the weak ass server always crashing. Oh we’ll.

  • bdogg

    hope my boy can get me these.. i get 2 favors for the year..this may be one of em!!!

  • Julio

    Not knline only other stores will get them

  • dotsupreme

    my boy at finishline said they will be hitting stores seen it on the there inventory list or w.e don’t quote me but i cant seeing it being online only…

  • omar najeeb

    Eff-that! I ain’t beat for payn 2bills fro em joints. These 3s arnt even my top 5 alltime. They dope.but not top 5 for me to be payn xtra for em. Like s’body else said , I still got my joints frm coupl yrs ago. Ill hav 2 b good wit that

  • Lem

    Got a pair of these already minus the Nike Air. I’m not one to buy 2 pair of the same shoe. If my 20ll’s were beat I would buy but since they aren’t it’s a no go. Good luck to all who want them though.

  • gotjordans

    Yeah, they are nice. Hmm, $200.00 and online only. And on Nike.com too… Wow, no Eastbay, no Foot Locker, and no Champs… Good luck!

  • shoe guy

    sucks that they are doing this online nike only BS… these will be impossible to get. just like that damn DB 9s.. nikes site is so lame…

  • gotjordans

    Just give me the time of the day, and I’ll get online, and see if I can cop a pair just for fun!

  • C0unt3rCultur3

    Old heads who really care about the “Nike Air” should already have 3 or more pair of these posted. The young cat’s never saw MJ wear ANY shoe with “Nike Air” so that should be a total non-issue!!! If you ain’t got White AJIII’s already, you’re hella young or hella lame anyway so… 10 years ago, I would have paid $300+ NO question but today, tat’s not enough to make me break bread! I actually feel robbed being a loyal JB supporter since 87!

  • TheSneakerDude

    I know yall young niggaz dont remember when Js came out on Wednesdays. 80s babies only!

  • the greatest

    please tell me what time they drop

  • RYU

    to many other nice sneaks coming out to be bothered really theyre not at all impressive or different as far as jays go mos definitely not worth two bill. jays are a dime a dozenbut on a positive note if you get congrats mayne 2013 is already full of other ways to spend ya benjies I swear to you these joints as far as symbolism goes are not the last that youll see
