Lol, I started collecting in 06. Only things wearable I still have from that time period are my 2 jordunk III's.

2005 HOA Infrared 90's, and all my GR 90's from 05, 06
2007 Fire red III
2006 Stealth V
2006 Fire Red V
ALLLLLL the 2010/11 III releases


All yellowed, fogging, cracking and shitty looking, jordunks still fine.

That is exactly why I sold all my Jordans. The only Jordans I have are two pair of the '18 BC III. I didn't start getting back into 90's until they fixed the paint in '15.

I noticed my red anni am1's that I wear all the time are starting to crack as well

I like the older shoes the new Jordans lack quality. Plus it get's old seeing a 9yr old wear some new General release ****..... My infared 6's OG (from 08) are 11 years old still in good condition and the yellowing on the sole looks dope.
I have a pair of LeBron 9 southbeaches that still look good, and super comfortable. Bunch of SB's that never look worn.

I like how we get upset that a pair of shoes made for pennies on the dollar in some sweatshop in China isn't "holding up after years of use"

I like how we pay hundreds of dollars for them for that matter.

Honestly, buying Jordans is probably the least intelligent thing I do, I have no idea why I keep doing it.

There are other shoes that are way better quality, but the quality on jordans have been seriously lacking 4-5 years. SB's do have good quality imo. Sauconys/Asics are good quality.

Don't have a pair of yeezy's but they look and feel like they're good quality.

You mean the bottom of the shoe?

I can't stand the breaks in color. ***** with my OCD. I prefer the midsole to be the same color as the shoe, or black.

Nothing worse than, like, black pants with white socks and black shoes with a white midsole. Looks like jorts and a combover to me.

They've been lacking in quality since like '00. If you compare any of the retroes from that time period, to anything from the mid-00's and beyond, you'll realize how trash they are.

I'm huge into 3s, 4s, and 5s. Nothing from then until today touches the '03 III retro, nothing from then until today touches '99 IV retro, nothing from then until today touches the '99-00 Vs.

I only collect OG color ways, so I can't comment on everything, but the only J's(3-5) I would put the word "quality" behind since '03 - today would be '13 FR III and '18 BC III, that's it.

yes, and lol and the analogy.

But yeah, like these, I like the break. I love white on the side, and gum/some sort of color on the bottom

Pretty much all of what J said about jordans. They have been pretty terrible for a long time now. SB's are very hit or miss also and have been for a while. Most Saucony's and Asics **** on anything nike/JB or adidas. New Balance is up there also for quality. That being said I still would never trade my nikes for them lol.

I have the 18 BC 3's. I like the white sides rather than the print sides.

There are two specific retro's that I kinda want .... Cool grey 11's and space jams

I find Jordan quality all over the place. Like, the last few pairs of 5s I've bought have been ultra high quality. Like the International 5s, the leather is butter. The Paris 5s, even the Fresh Prince ones were nice. My latest 3s have been kinda hit or miss. The Mochas were OK, as were the all whites, but like my Quai 54s are crazy high quality. The 3Ms are trash, and honestly the Tinkers are sub par too.

All my 4s have been **** for years. Even the ******* Cactus Jacks that people are paying $500 a pair for are ****, mine have glue stains all over and the quality is just trash.

They are going for over $300 right now. Not bad on a $100 shoe.

They are VERY comfortable. That ultraboost with really **** with you.

You have to relearn how to walk in them, but it is comfortable as hell. You dont necessarily need to get the Yeezys. You can get standard ADIDAS Ultraboosts for cheaper.

Ultraboosts look so wack with most clothes though.

Iniki the only boost shoe you can wear and look like a reasonable person with for the most part.
