18 | DAVE WHITE x AIR JORDAN 1

A follow-up to 2011′s 23-pair Dave White x Air Jordan 1, this Bulls-centric colorway designed by famed UK artist Dave White was a special release on February 11th. This Swoosh-less Air Jordan 1 first surfaced in the latter half of 2011, and a wide release didn’t happen until around All-Star Weekend – roughly one year after the WINGS For The Future auctions for the original Dave White x Air Jordan 1 came to a close. In addition, these Air Jordan 1s were priced at $175 and disappeared quickly, proving that most basic of Air Jordan models by comparison could hold that premium factor.

everybody hating on the filberts... they belong on the list maybe at the bottom but they beling... what gets me is the 11 lows made it and not the Olympic 7s... the bred XI's are where they should be anyone who has them higher is truly a hypebeast... like homie @mike0811  said they havent been released since 99... while the 11's dropped 3 times since then

Black cement 4's should've been second or first and the same with the black/red 11's....couldn't go wrong with neither one!

I'm suprised the white cement iv's were number 1. I was expecting the bred iv's or bred xi's to be #1.

I agree 100% with number 1. I honestly thought the bred xi's would be 1 but I'm pleased to see sneakernews staff have a very similar taste 1-23 as I do. I would change a few places but over well done sn.

As usual the Playoff 12's are ranked way too low. The Bred 4's need to be number one. And the J2K 7's shouldn't even touch this list.

Honestly I used to love Jordans so much, but now he is retired and I'd rather rock a pair of Lebron's that come in some many new different raw a$$ colors. I'm so tired of seeing new people that have no clue about the man's shoes they are buying, and spending their parent's hard earned money on! Hypebeasts can go to heck, which is why this blog is stupid anyway. They make these shoes so crappy and cheap now a days and charge 20-40 extra dollars for them, I call robbery! But after all this rant I just had to get off my chest, I think Olympic 7's needed to be on here as long as they were lower then Olympic 6's, and Gold Medal Pack, Kilroy Pack, J2k 7's, DB 9's should have been in top 5

Top 5 Wasnt Bad. Switch The Bred XI's for the Chicago X's and im even happier.

"The Air Jordan IV ‘White/Cement’ may not have skyrocketed in resale price or widespread appeal to the younger generation..."

 

but now that you made it number one, i guess it would be different on ebay lol

Motorboat Jones should have been lower. Olympic Pack 6/7 should have been higher. Cool Gray 9 should NOT have made it. Olympic 7 should have made it. I agree with top 3, however bred 4 should switch with cement 4 as no1. Thats just my 2 cents.

Pretty sure the red suede 4s will be in the top 3 this year

Dont agree with some of the ratings but im happy that the cements took that number 1 spot, overall good list.

Where's the J2K 1's???  Those shoes were one of the most detailed and most dope shoes I've seen come out of the JB for years! The combination of nubuck, tumbled, smooth and patent leathers and a sweet dust bag.....  Really SN? 

 

These shoes are like a family full of police officers,,,, A MUST COP!!!

 @AndreyMerinov its because this come out last time year 1999.. to me its a legit no. 1..obviously you have no idea..you're just a bandwagoner in jordans.. in short "pretender"

@GreedyEaly the thunders almost define hype!! It's a black and yellow 4 in limited quantities. Every limited professional football team cw will be hype period.

 @Da_Real_Big_Infinite

 Agreed. Both are clean, but I remember pics of Jordans in the breds. I'm sure there are pics of him in the cements, but its also not a bulls cw. Although the most important difference to me is one of function. The WHITE cements are just gonna get dirty way quicker than the breds, and I hate when I can see my white laces getting dirty. No the breds will wear better IMO.

@Shaded Olympic 7's have been retroed way too many times. So why should they be on the list?

@kingofSoles son u wouldn't know what a classics is been in the game a longtime n just stating the fact most the people here saw that shoe on we got plug cork for $130 at the outlets n it was badly made I had a pair n sent it right back like many others did I have the playoff 12's too n those were way better n just cause I don't like a shoe u like doesn't make me a hypebeast ur one just for saying that

 @Lilmr81  @GreedyEaly  im sorry bruh but not at all only true Jordan heads know about the rarity of the thunder 4's JB was smart to drop em after the 11s so hypebest would be so caught up in the bred hype they would overlook them im glad they did that so i could get minez

Da_Real_Big_Infinite

@MartinD44 hell yea... I remember gettin my bred 4s as a kid too.. jus looked more smoother then da white cements... And fa me da bred 4s have always been in my top 5 best Jordan's ever

 @Tennessee1257  they came out the same day the J2K filbert 7's came out... you know, number 20 on the list.... smh

 @GreedyEaly  Just no, wayyy to much hype around Thunders especially since that's a garbage CW. And it doesnt matter how much hype were around the Bred's b/c they released 500,000 pairs.

 @Tennessee1257  LoL,,, skinny jeans.... 

 

listen man, i'd love to scratch back and forth like this all night but i've got grown up shit to do,, soooo,,, YOU WIN, YOUR RIGHT, I'M WRONG. i shouldn't have posted an OPINION about shoes i like,,, MY BAD. 

 

squashed

@powder245 I wasn't wrong. They were a pair, the "original" pair that came on the scene in 2010. And even when I realized they did come out, again, I acknowledged that.....like a grown man. Don't be upset with me because the shoes you paid over $100 for can now be found in a discount outlet lol. You took the first shot at me. Don't be mad cause I shot back lol. And as far as me buying what's hot, I buy what I want with the $$$ I earn. Give a damn about what's hot or not. But the bottom line is the J2K's are ass butter that you use to slide in your skinny jeans with. But like you said, to each his own

powder245
powder245

 @Tennessee1257  nah, i think they're butter... BUT, that's my opinion... to each there own.    Fact is that they DID come out in 2012 and you were wrong,,, don't be salty about that...    grown ass men don't act like kids. Enjoy buying what everyone else tells you is hot.  

Tennessee1257
Tennessee1257

@powder245 kid?!?!?! Grown ass man homie. J2K's are crap, that's why they were made with scraps. They knew people like you would buy them lol! You'll never have to worry about being robbed or killed for your J2K's, wishing you luck would be redundant

@powder245 (snaps fingers) oh yeah, the ugly ass black and red joint. Just shows you how (in)significant the shoe was lol
