Jordan Brand’s Son Of Mars debut last week was met with surprising success, leaving store shelves at a much higher frequency and pace than expected. It seems like these days, any Air Jordan or Air Jordan-inspired shoe is at risk of disappearing at retail, but with the growing community of sneakerheads and the widening tastes and preferences, it’s a retail trend that was quite honestly, to be expected. There are four known colorways of the Jordan Son Of Mars thus far; the ‘Pop Art’, the Black/Red, an unseen ‘Olympic’, and this White/Varsity Purple rendition that should hit retailers soon. If the release of the Pop Art is any indication of how the Club Purple release will go down, you’re better of locking in your pair right now by securing one of the available units from el-store on eBay.

Pass, def can't wait for the military blues. But I'm probably gonna miss them cause of all the "sneakerheads" nowadays... I remember when I got the 06 military's a couple weeks after the Release
I'm out on a limb, but the pop art S.O.M.s are fresh. much better on feet than in pics. The green laces killed the pop arts, so that was an easy swap. Strap really doesn't suck that bad in person. Hate all you want but the SOMs are fly - Yeezy roots lol I'm in the same boat on the purple overboard - JB gotta fug it up somehow. Packaging design needs a kick in the balls too, shits lame compared to the retros.
Does anyone else look at these and think back to the mid 2000s and think of that one guy who bought Jordans from a gas station and called them "exclusive"?
I'm not trying to hate but since when was purple cool? That's a hypebeast color. They always say shit like "YeahI love DGK!"
I like the concept of combining retro classics but strap just tipped the scale overboard from this shoe becoming a hit
I'm waiting for a dope colorway of these.... These have some potential... I haven't completely written these off... Stick a classic colorway on these and you got yourself a decent pair of everyday kicks...
These aren't bad, but those Pop-Arts... EWWW... I'm actually liking this one hopefully more good CW comin up
love da cw... but still jus a uuuugly ass shoe. Take dat dam 20 strap off... and now dat lil wayne wears these shoes, their even moooore ugly lol
i got military blues and laney 5s at the nike outlet for $89.99 but for some reason these days... they are heat. I dont get it.
ya fucking retarted everything is purple purple weed purple drank purple grape V's purple haze hat from ecap city...every fucking color in the world is dope re-thefuck-lax
well since YOU said purple isn't cool then, f*** the aquas, f*** the grapes, f*** the concords, f*** the flint 7s, f*** the charcoals and f*** the sacramentos........... stupidass^^^^^
they show the date in slam magazine which is around april 7 but not 2 sure but thats what it say in the magazine
a lot of sneakerheads did. I'm not even gonna lie I was one of them who did sleep on them because my check didn't come before the release date. The following weeks on I think that tuesday or wednesday I went to the mall with my card and scooped up a 10.5 (half size smaller than usual) and walked out. Good ol days where something sudden happen and you still had a chance to get your shoes a couple days later. Nowadays if you get stuck at 2 red lights you can forget about it.
