But You Got Them J’s… Why?
Sneaker heads o’ plenty are currently losing their minds over the brand new Air Jordan release - the Jordan Retro 11 Low White Varsity. It’s a very clean shoe and I’m sure the price will financially send some owners into bankruptcy. I, as a basketball fan, get the aura of the Air Jordan brand when Air Jordan was playing but I can’t understand why people who don’t remember his Airness from his playing days would want to wear the sneaker of the guy who currently owns the worst team in the NBA. Note that when you wear Jordan’s now you are currently wearing the shoe of a charcoal colored old black man with a Hitler mustache in those God-awful Hanes commercials. Is this what people are paying $400 to a thousand to support? A black man in first class who weird white men want to show their underwear too?!
I’m a basketball fan and Michael Jordan, the player, will forever be the greatest I’ve ever seen but I’m not paying $400 for the shoes of the guy that drafted Adam Morrison, yo! I’m sorry. Thanks to NBATV and Youtube I can relive the greatness of Michael Jordan anytime I want. I don’t have to wear some low version of the Space Jam shoe to connect with the great #23. Nike’s slick and is remixing the Jordan more times than Puffy has Biggies Juicy verse. Let’s keep our heads about us people. Of course, if your money is right and you can swing paying $400 to a thousand on a sneaker of a man who can be seen sitting at the end of the Bobcats bench aging with each loss? So be it. However, there’s another retro sneaker you can cop for like $60 and can find at virtually any sneaker store. It’s call the Converse black with white toe aka the Bill Russell. That’s the shoe of a man with six more championships than Jordan and $60 bucks won’t have you in the poor house “rockin’ them J’s though”
