Air Jordan 8 Destroyed

Had to say farewell to my Air Jordan 8 Retros. These kicks went to Italy and Greece with me being retroed the week before the trip. Yes, I walked the dusty Colosseum and visited the original site of the Olypmics in these AJ8 back in 2003. But after years of sitting in my garage, the Hawaiian […]

Similar Reactions to iOS7 and the Air Jordan 11

The love it or hate it reactions to Apple’s newly released iOS7 mobile operating system remind me of the Air Jordan 11 when it launched. There is no middle ground with both iOS7 and the AJ11 polarizing its audience. Too shiny, too unconventional, too flashy, too bold – the naysayers described the XI, initially including […]

Maybe I Should Fear the Jordans

After watching Macklemore’s video Wings, maybe I should be fearful of the Jordans. Although at my age, I’m not worrying so much about about defining my identify through my kicks. It’s more about reminiscing the past through retros and enjoying the colors and designs of contemporary kicks. Maybe I should worry about coworkers eyeing and […]

Air Jordan XX8 to Be Worn by Pandas?

The Air Jordan XX8 is on that cusp that separates genius from mediocre. At first glance, this ninja-looking bootie seemed like it relied on historical designs of Air Jordan designs. But then again, Tinker Hatfield, the soul of Air Jordan creations, was at the helm of the XX8. Besides the technology that includes the Jordan […]

Air Jordan XX8 to Be Worn by Ninjas?

I’m not sure what to make of the silhouette of the newly announced Air Jordan XX8. From initial pictures, I’d say these will be worn by ninjas, by fishermen (they remind me of tabi), or by Snake Eyes from G.I. Joe. Eight inches tall, a zip up upper, responsive, light, and expensive at $250 a […]
