Air Jordan Original Colorways – How Many Do You Own?
If you’ve had the rare opportunity of walking around the Nike Headquarters, chances are you took a prolonged stop at the Michael Jordan building to see the insane exhibit of Air Jordans and memorabilia. For the Jordan Brand employees, seeing a sneaker layout of that magnitude is an everyday occurrence, so while they’re used to seeing all the best Air Jordans of all-time (like this spread of Air Jordan 1 through 2012 sitting prettily on a table), some Air Jordan fanatics have never seen ‘em all at once. Our question to you is: How many of these Air Jordans in the classic Bulls colorways as well as the newer flagship editions like the Wolf Grey Air Jordan 2012 or the Wizards-specific joints do you own? Check out the full spread below and fill out the quick survey below!
I remember when my mom bought me a pair of taxi 12 back in the day. I wore size 8 back then and balled in them and then wore them every day until they were dead. RIP my og 12s and then the playoff 13s. I still have the box filled with basketball cards.
"IMO all of the 1-23 sigs are Worthy of my feet, HANDS DOWN!! "" realeast shit spoke all day first if u cant stand the 15s then u never owned them period on feet with jeans they "SICK' second wtf 18s are the ish too ovious YOU never owned them if u forgot about em .... 19s jeez have u seen them on feet that all i can say plus double stacked zoom air ....point is all js are the great ecexpt for the 20 and the 22......... thefucwrong with yall.....not gona sit back and let people act like there are only 13 good modles of js
I just completed 1 - 2012 this year. I picked up the IV's, X's, and CDP XVII's that I was missing to complete the collection. I have multiple colorways of some (retro & Original). Don't know at this point how many pairs of Jay's I have, I have to count them again. I will post a pic soon.
People need to stop hating on the newer j's. I've been collecting since the 80s and some of the newer ones are more comfortable and better on thr court than any of the older ones. The 2010 and 2011 arw great on the court. You need to realize what these shoes are made to do. Those that hate the new ones., are the ones that just own them to chill out and not ball in.
I guess based off the votes, it shows who r true air Jordan/sneaker heads unlike these newly found ones that just jumped on scene a couple years ago!
I dont have the IX. Gave my Olives away. Never cared for the XII that much. Didnt like the XV til I got a pair and found them comfortable as hell. XVI XVII XVII XIX I found ugly. Didnt like the XXI 2K9 2K10. On the fence about 2K12. Much better shoe in person than pictures. All the rest I own. Even some OG pairs in V and VI.
I got the og colorways from 1-8 then 11-14 & the 22 & 23's and then i have 1-14 & the 18's and 21's in non-og colorways as well. Im 42 pairs all together in just jordans but only 14 pairs of og cw's so "im still in the hunt".
At one point in time I had 8 of em.. 6s 8s 11s 12s 14s 16s 17s & 19s. Only have 11s & 12s now. In the process of selling all Js except for 11s & 12s.. "Trying to catch em all" isn't a very smart goal, but goodluck to those still on the hunt.
i have 17 of them. i dont have those 1s (got the patent leather version),4s (sold the CDPs), 5s (sold them), 20s (passed), 21s (missed), 22s (gave away), 2009-2012 (trash)
I got a pair of 18-23, but most I copped for a little bit of nothing 03 to 06 people where into steve maddens, dunks and air force. Plus I had footlocker hook ups.
I think some people misunderstood what they were talking about. They mentioned original colors that each came out when the model first dropped. I think some people got it confused and thought what were the original first color way that specific model first dropped i.e. the white/black 13s that were in the movie He Got Game compared to the black/red 13s in the picture. The white/blacks dropped first but both those and the black/reds are original colors that released back in late 1997-1998
As of right now, I only have 2 OG colorways, and the actual OG 8's. And I'm just fine with that. There were other nikes that I was on the hunt for at the time. Combine that with limited funds and responsibilities, there was only so much that I could purchase. Nevertheless, I am just fine with where I'm at right now. There is no need to keep up with the Joneses.
Got them all but gave it all away cause i aint got no space at home for all the jordans i have. looking to cop js. call me if you want some retros :D
I wouldn't mind having 1-23 but not the rest of the 2ks but I only have 3 pair of the OG color ways. Tht is the 14s 11s nd the 5s but I will step my game up.
I can't front I'm a hypebeast who just started my collection I won't say how many I got but my favorite ones are the 12, 6, 21, and 11
I own 17 pairs of original bulls/wizards not counting each color I'm only counting actual numbered models that dropped which means I only own 17 models.. I have pairs of 3,4,5,6,7,10,11, og 12, og 13s, og 14s, og 17, og 18, og 19s, 21,22,23 and the aj 2k9s. Working on 2k10s and 2k11s. If you're wondering out of the picture above I own 7 that are pictured
I got 24 out of da possible 27 shoes... 1 thru 14, 16 & 17 were da best.. really like da 23 finales too.. but after 23, only pair ive copped were da 2011s. And those were jus to hoop in
I hope yall know that Nike and JB look at polls like this, and use them in there marketing strategies to rope yall into buy there product. They see how crazed we get off of these sneakers. Its called Supply & Demand, the more we consume and show interest, THE MORE JORDAN WILL RAPE OUR POCKETS.........Thumb me down if you want, i'm just stating the obvious
If memory serves me right, aren't the white/black (not playoffs) 13's the OG colorway not black/red? O_o
Your memory did not serve you correctly on this one jay. The original 13 is the bred in the picture. They were the sneaker that combined the g.o.a.t.'s "black cat" nickname with his passion for golf. Dave-0 would've been better off saying nothing. Pretty much everything you said is inaccurate. The pictured 7's(raptor) are the original 7 smh. Do you really think that this would pass editing if they had multiple cw's wrong? Do some research guys...not you jay, you were just slightly off this time because that's a common misconception. These are all correct
wrong stupidass the breds were not the original 13 you phucking moron! it was the he got games that came first because im no genius but it know 1997 comes before 1998. next time when you google to try to impress the sneaker community on something you clearly dont know make sure you click a good link. LMAO
You're talking about the pair denzel had on in the movie he got game. Yes those are also an og color way that the 13s came out in.
