I love jordan brand, I collect mainly the 1-14 retros. especially 6,7,8,11,12,13 "the shoes he won his 6 championships with.. I was never a fan of the 16s because the patent leather toe box makes these shoes look like dress shoes or something.., more so on the black and red 16s.. I know these aint a patent leather toe on these shoes but they still dont look like right in my opinion. im not hating im just stating my opinion. the 16s are not a shoe I felt like I NEED in my collection.. 2013 is definitly gunna be a great year for us who love jordan/nike shoes. im very excited for 2013.
