what the hell… is that a sink trap??
cannot seem to understand the purpose of “the hole” – design, maybe? no plans of copping this one, though…
pretty nice, big price tag though. What is with the hole, could it be black or something to blend?
cant believe these are j’s
i would only slap these on if i were to hoop in them(and i got paid to do it)
point blank in my opinion they’re ugly
dwade’s gonna wear these..
No way im gonna buy this for 170$.
i think jordan is trying to use flywire without the flywire.
Copped x2. Haters always hate on the new Js. Always. Get over it, the new Js are always amazing to play in, and always push the boundaries of style.
this is so going to give me the advantage when i’m ballin! dudes are going to be so perplexed when they see i ball in hello kitty socks, they’ll totally lose their focus.
I like them. But the Black/Carolina is better, and $170 might be too much.
Do they have IPS or zoom in the midsole? The XX’s are still the best J’s to hoop in.
u g l y as sh1t
circle ruins the shoe.
May be I’ll get hooked later. These last years it always took a while before I started felling them J’s. But real talk I don’t understand the hole thing… And yes 170 is kinda pricey !
here’s a thought: Wade jumps ship cuz of ugly cons, then JB gives him this.. i’m thinking nike gave them the same designers..lol (i know, i know tinker hatfield did this, i’m just sayin’)
even with the hole (why mike why?) the shoes are too simple. ankle support looks poor as well. these should’ve been a team jordan for michael finley.
They look like the Eddie Jones Jumpmans with a hole in the middle of them.
Dear SLAM,why do you hate us ,what did we do to deserve more fugly shoes…Mike slippin!
Jordans are pretty much always $150-$170 thats nothing new. The hole is ridiculous. Remove that hole and you have a pretty decent looking shoe… not a $170 Jordan shoe, but a nice Jumpman or regular nike shoe.
they’re for the new ironman movie. the super hero wears them!
the outdoor version of these gets rid of the hole and they look much nicer and would be a better purchase for those of us that love the asphalt and have money to burn like cheap leaves on a bonfire.
I’m not a hater but i remember the J’s used to be an iconic amazing shoe but in the past seasons something went terribly wrong and it’s a shame the brand ain’t representing what is supposed to represent ….another Air Jordan to forget and another broken promise…sniff!!
j4zzm4n, thanks for that. those outdoor ones are waaaaay better.
they look like the Jordan 1s. I have my sight on the Jordan 1 Alpha, great shoe, can’t wait until they come out.
Yea the whole hole issue is pisses me off. Circles dont belong on shoes period its Whierd.
If people can get the XX’s, then there’s no way they can say this shoe won’t sell. It’a jordan shoe, ballers will get it, casual jeans people (ugh) will whine. Oh well, about time we get something strictly for the courts!
Yeah, these are weird but definitely better than the 2009 model though!!!
im not going to look into the details, but did Hatfield design these ones? if so time to let him go. creativity is a sinking ship
I’d wear converse before these abominations
I’ve waited so long for D Wade to release his Jordans. and this is what happened. I’m disappointed. and $170???? wow.
overall, they look lopsided and the metal circle adds retardation as the 2 themes the shoe displays.
the way the shape of the toe is so round and the circle or hole in the middle made them look like they are meant for pre-skool.the glare in the picture above hides the jumpman symbol.
i could’ve designed a better shoe than this i would have kept the interior but i would have also placed ‘jordan’ on the sole of the shoe.and i would defintently take of that hole put on the other side of the shoe. and then put a contortion system and arch the sole to add speed.i would keep the jordan symbol but i wouldnt put the hole.
to get more buyers i would price this at $113(since they are J’s)
Is this JB’s 2009 interpretation of a well-balanced design?
Please don’t insult the people’s intelligence with the highest price in the history of basketball shoes for the ugliest shoe in the history of mankind…
i like these
for all yall idiots the hole is to see through your opponent
A Must Have
I think there sick. I mean they look like a great quality basketball shoe. Only for on-court tho….but I’d defs rock em.
Im sorry, i know its MJ and people have let sh*t like the 23 fly, but no more. this shoes are ugly, I mean whats with the hole??!?!?
Slightly off-topic, but does anyone know where I can find out which websites are selling fakes? As I was looking at the new Jordan CP.3 on a site called FirstSneakers.com and they were about 80 bucks, which seemed to cheap, so I assumed they were fake.
Any help is much appreciated. PS – Christ those J’s are ugly!
the air max lebron VII are the best kicks of this season!
for 50$ i might……….
the whole is to check whether or not you forgot to put your socks on…..
these are dope. cant wait to cop’em. everybody always hates on the new Js for a little while and btw the new lebrons are pretty ugly except for the hardwood classics colour
the hole will show what color sock you have on, it looks pretty sick with black socks.
Squirrel7, that site is definitely fake. Don’t buy from them.
