While a job at Jordan Brand would be a dream come true for many of our readers there’s always a slight intimidation factor to consider. As in: could you keep up with the sneaker collections of the folks on campus who live and breathe all things Air Jordan? This recent string of shots gives you a good idea of what they’re working with, a sequence that began appropriately last Tuesday with the Air Jordan II, moving up one step in the line each business day since. Click through to check out the pairs of Air Jordan’s II through VI on-feet at the Jordan Brand headquarters (and keep your eyes peeled for some interesting samples among them) and let us know if you think you could hang with these guys in the comments below.
A. I could keep up but I def wouldn't be in the lead! LOL
B. I'm indifferent about JB coming out with re-releases. For instance, the Thunder & Lightning 4s were hard to cop so I don't mind that re-release but a sneaker like the Toro Bravo 4s which sat on the shelf for days I feel like shouldn't be released. For those of you that don't remember, that pack was hated on profusely when they came out.
There is a black leg in there guy and a few brown legs. I mean if you're so concerned about diversity, I'm not sure I see any female legs. You're not being racist. You're sayin JB is, but it seems you're the one overly concerned with color. I would hope JB isn't hiring based on color. Either way is stupid. Not hiring blacks or whites for their color, or hiring so many blacks or so many whites because of a need to have a certain number of each. It's all retarded. You hire the person with the right qualifications. Hopefully there's a cross section of everyone, but if there isn't?? NO BIG DEAL. Calling Jordan a racist or a sell out is just ignorant. Why haven't I heard anybody callin Kanye a sell out for gettin with Kim??? Or Wiz for Amber??? Chillllllllllllll with the race card
@Kev Loco typo!!...LOL Didn't even know I put the number 4 until u replied. My bad. Yes, that 4 is supposed to be a 5 or a V! There is no such thing as the Toro Bravo 4!- Sneakernews, I am sorry for not re-reading b4 posting.
For the collectors' who have the limited shoes, they don't want them to re-release b/c it takes away from the exclusivity/shyne/rareness that they have in their pair. People who were unable to get em want another crack at getting em cuz they're so clean as well as so expensive to try n cop now at reselling prices. Thats the difference of opinions. As long as JB innovates and comes up with classics like the tokyo 5s and toro bravo 5s then I'm cool with those particular pairs not rereleasing even though I don't got em, but really want em. But thats only if they come out with some new dope one-hit-wonders.
@MartinD44@JrSnackzA: Black People are only 12% of the population so of course there are gonna be less. B: There are more women than men in the US in all age groups so, right where there women? well i reckon that most might work for nike or more women-centic products. C: I figured that most of the blacks were wearing pants cus white guy wear shorts all year long.
Word to everyone's mamma! I wear all my shoes, but at some point you gotta retire a pair from active duty. All those who're bitter about rarer Js comin back should be content they can get a new pair to rock, in stead of hoarding away the PRECIOUS
@MartinD44 yea ppl should just get over it, if they keep releasing og colorways hell release older noncocolorways. The cool greys got release, ppl just self fish and why, let everybody gey a shot. By now u same folks need a new pair
