Jordans and Nikes have become exceedingly popular over the last few years, and while there exists a select group in the population that persists in believing that it still is a ‘sub-culture’, sneakers have become THE culture – perhaps the defining fashion phenomenon of this generation. Kim Kardashian rocking the Cement IIIs is a perfect example that Jordans have become a ‘hot’ item, but that shouldn’t take away from your own individual relationship with sneakers (and why should another person wearing your favorite kicks have any affect on you?). And while it’s no mystery that copping sneakers isn’t what it once was (even Nike is taking measures to alter the horizon), not every release is an instant sell-out.
This Saturday’s release of the Air Jordan XI Low might fall in that category for a number of reasons; it’s not an original colorway (albeit still a Bulls get-up), there are other desirable releases month, and some still can’t mess with Lows. However anything with patent leather seems to sell like hotcakes, and with Michael himself rocking some PE varieties of the low-top Air Jordan XI, the excitement for these could be underestimated. In any case, the choice is yours come Saturday, as these will likely fall under Nike’s ‘Twitter RSVP’ procedure and won’t hit Nikestore until 8 AM. So, are you on the fence on these?

I have question. I live in ny, and I plan on buying these. Is showing up at 7am a good time to be there ?? I plan to go to 34th in the house of hoops, and I'm a size 10. Please, someone let me know ..
glad no one likes these....... wont be that hectic this weekend......... esp with these new release rules..... MUST COP FOR ME !!!!!!!!!
Sorry guys, I got cut off. I was gonna say, "Lol, thanks for not copping these so me and all the other "down lows" can all wear them and identify each other by the shoes we're wearing. I think they're thuper thweet!
Im done with Jordans, is a mission to get a pair this days. Plus their expensive sneakers, and quality is garbage. I Refuse to camp and also I refuse to pay resell price im not feeding this little lazy monsters with no jobs..
The way the sneaker game is right now if you like them you better cop them now because these are going to go for $300+ after release date. I like them and I already cop them. Good luck to those who likes them and going to cop because even if people saying these are ugly its going to be hard to get especially if you live in NYC.
I know the malls and shoe stores are going to be insane... Glad I have mines already! I never thought it would get as real as it has gotten lately over kicks...
Copped... Will be fire with jeans.... And they're like awhit version of breds so how can you go wrong
Coppin dem Laker frogs n these... Oh n dem LeBron Elite away since they still in stock. Got da home joints already.
Ain't no being on the fence with this one. Thirsty ass kids are still gonna line up and cause chaos at malls smh
On the Fence? Nope! im jumpin over the fence on release date to cop these lol i kno th was corny but these 11low to fresh to pass up
Since most of you n00bs weren't copping jay's in 2002-2004, but I'm 95% positive this was actually a variant colorway bootlegers sold, SMH at nike now selling these as authentic.
I hear the pros and cons you all are throwing out there...but EVERY shoe has is goods and bads...EVERY shoe...but Im still getting these...DEF cop for me...
Pass. The patent leather already looks yellowing and hasn't released!!! Smh. But Quality aside, They look ok but def not worth the hype every jb release is getting recently.
II'll tell u want I'm on the fence about these so I want kamp out but that morning ill go to the mall and if they got my pair n my size I'm gonna kop
Love xi's till I die and red is my fav. Color...but I jus can not cop these being about a 7 or 8 and there are to many 10's (no not the Jordan...10 on a scale) on the horizon...if there still around in months to come then cool, if not oh well
this site hypes up the wackest sneakers. anything with patent leather sells??? lol really and who gives a shit kim k wore kanyes 3s. that makes it hot?
instant sell out! it doesnt matter anymore if its a non og colorway everybody including nuns at church are gonna cop
The only reason Kim even knows about the sneaker culture is because of the men she dates. Otherwise CLUELESS!
