They slapped the "Nike Air" on the back but watch the quality be horrible just like on my 2011 black cement 3's. Fucking paint chipping on white midsole and not to mention the slopping heel on the back.

All these complaints.. Should've seen back in April 2003 when EVERYONE complained about NIKE AIR removed in place of the Jumpman.. Haha

Nike is full of bs. I don't even want these but for everybody who does this is some pure, unadulterated bullshit

"These were the first Jordans to feature the "NIKE AIR" logo on the back, but later replaced by the Jumpman logo, with the words "AIR" underneath it, similar to the Air Jordan VI. "

Yall dont feel like sheep yet, huh? What would it take lol. By a show of hands, who knows the OG said "NIKE" under the outsole. But these are "OG"? They didn't post that pic this time though lol: with "JORDAN" on the bottom. "Who cares?" you say? But you'll pay $200+ship/tax for a "Nike Air" on the heel tab, which will instantly be covered by jeans lol. Took it a lil far but, c'mon yall. Even worse, next year they are releasing the Re-Retro 3 OG Vintage Bobby Johnson 1988 Dunk Contest Specials wit Nike on the insole, heel tab and outsole. But with crimson laces lol.

I feel sorry 4 the sneakerheads who get these cuz with every year passing the quality getting gayer in 20 years these bad boys r gonna look like G grades or payless shoes

These aren't coming to Australia..Can anyone help me find a way to get them on release date? From an online site?

i guess they're trying to combat resellers buying up all the sneakers and flipping them on ebay. which makes sense. because more than likely they will limit the amount of pairs you can buy and will lag from people purchasing slowing up the process. anyhow this is smart on their part and only people getting upset are the resellers. now they will have to find away to get them in large amonts

Can't wait to cop a DS 2011 pair for $160 when the hype makes the Jumpman "passe".

Its because of blogs like this putting this info out that noone can get the sneakers they want when they want cause the hypebeasts and resellers get this info and jump on this shit... smh.

Just make them a GR, Nike/JB.  Just like back then.  There was no Twitter or RSVP.  Sometimes I wish it was '88.

Ok people. It is an ONLINE ONLY release on Nike's behalf (4:51 pm est, 3:51 pm CT, 2:51 MT,, 1:51 PT) OTHER STORES are having them. This ONLY concerns you if you buy from nike. Shit!

Can we get a review on these?   I'm guessing since no one has, they're going to be standard.   I'm never one to bitch about quality (it's rarely as bad as people gripe about), but an extra $40 for a different heel tag?   Old man Nike can lick my balls.   Give me something butter soft with higher end flex paint, and I'm in.

Ahhh all the sheep are sad lol. Id get these if they were black cements no doubt. Its too much room for error with these. 200 and all white? 160 ill be good with that lol.

Ok Sneakernews, you know you messed up.  You're saying: "as we near the Feb. 2nd release", but the release day is the 6th... LOL.  Which one is it? Double sheesh! :D 

gotjordans

I knew there would be a catch.  So, now it's online via Twitter only, and NOT on Nike.com... Sheesh! If this wasn't just another way for Twitter to get more members to sign up...

I still can't justify paying an extra $40 just for a Nike Air logo, to each his own i guess
