Undecided. I haven't really liked any retro's since the 5's and these are kinda ehh. But I've always been a sucker for those tounges. I don't know...

I know nobody likes the Spiz'ikes (including me) and I swore I'd never buy them but I had to cop these to go with my

That is an original colorway. MJ wore them in the All-Star game that year. I rocked them as an 8th grader before I cared about fruity color combos. I will probably wait until December for the Black/Reds if I buy any. Terrible last half of the year for Jordans. I haven't bought a pair since the I's Old Love, New Love pack.

And Gloss, if you needed that color combo you should have looked out for the III's that came out a while ago. Still ugly, IMO, but at least they are III's.

^ Those III's have orange. The Spiz'ikes I got have "pro-gold" which is an exact match to my Fielder jersey. I've been looking all over for some aragon blue/pro-gold Nikes for month. This was the closest, plus I kinda dig them now that I tried them on. The other Spiz'ikes are just plain ugly, especially those Pumpkin's that Bun-B rocks.

Jordan Brand is a disgrace. Money grubbing clowns is what they have become.

The only "decent" Jordans dropping the rest of the year are these.

I kinda like these 8's. The cement Spiz'ikes aren't bad but I don't really want anymore of my $ go to Spike Lee's shitty movies.

Actually, the color on these is also "Pro Gold", picture is probably just off. Jordan brand released a lot of stuff with the same color way to commemorate "Do The Right Thing" based on the movie poster.

Here is another shoe in that colorway they did. Jordan Select Low.

Yeah those are the Brisk jawns. The colors are a bit bright for me. I like the "white" in the Spiz'ikes.

Aquas are my favorite Jordans ever. So comfortable. The retro is really good quality too.

Those Playoff 8s are money as well.

The Do The Right Thing colorways are a travesty.

After the Playoffs the 10/13 pack is the next big deal. I love the shadow gray 10's. I hope the majority of the shoes in the packs are the red/black colorways though. 2008 should be interesting.

I seriously do not get these shoes, they are so fucking wrong on multiple levels.
But looks like they should be an easy cop for those who do like them.
Other than the Cement IVs and Patent XIs, I'll pass on future retros.
