It has been a long time, but it’s back. This week’s Sneaker of the Week is the Flu Games! I know these were released last november, but I just took these bad boys out of the closet today. I ave yet to wear them, but just looking at them and how fresh made me want to profile them. This edition of the Jordan Retro 12’s sports the black/red colorway Jordan rocked during the 1997 NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz. The are called the flu games because Jordan torched the Jazz 38 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals. What made this performance more memorable was that Jordan was extremely sick with the flu! Located on the nubuck upper is a sick face with the number 97 and 38 on the sides of it to commemorate this classic moment!
This week’s edition of Sneaker of the Week should not come as a surprise. If you still do not know why 12/23/09 was one of the most anticipated days of the year then take off your kicks and do not buy another pair! 12/23/09 marked the release of one of the most popular Air Jordan shoes of all time, the Air Jordan Space Jam 11! People lined up outside of Jordan retailers all through the night in order to secure a pair of these popular shoes. As last yea with the 11/12 countdown pack, I was able to avoid lines and cop me a pair for half price! Sorry to those who missed out! If you are willing to spend a pretty penny for these, sneakerfather has restocked them!
Sneaker of the Week is back! and it is back in a big way. This week’s sneaker is the best Jordan sneaker of ALL TIME! The Black/Red Air Jordan Retro 11. This sneaker released yesterday 12/20/08. They were released in a box set along with the Air Jordan Retro 12 with a retail price of $310. This release was one of the most anticipated releases of all time. Jordan heads were camping outside of stores and waiting in long lines all across the country to get them a pair. Stores were selling out within minutes. So did I camp out through the night and drop $300? NOPE! no camping out, no lines for me! Best of all, I only paid $155 for the package! Even though I will continue to collect, I feel as though my collection is complete as I now own my DREAM JORDANS! I have been trying to get a pair of these ever since I started collecting sneakers and now I have them! THANK YOU JORDAN!!
