The basic intention of a sample sneaker is to let a company show its retailers the selections they might stock for coming seasons. In the modern sneakerhead era, the sample has risen to mythic proportions with both previewed models and unreleased gems drawing more attention than ever before. Here’s a series of Jordan Brand samples set to release for the fourth quarter, which includes some huge upcoming drops including the black/Gamma Blue Air Jordan XI, ‘Laney’ Jordan V and ‘Taxi’ XII Retros, a couple of new Six Rings and several other styles. You’ll want to take a closer look below, then let us know which of these Jordan Brand holiday 2013 styles has you most excited.
Only two shoes on that table I'm thinking about are the Taxi's and Laney's. Steels are good too but everything else is trash in my opinion.
Cant wait till they put a release date on the laneys and the 10s. Oh the 5s look fake as shit and the 11s are wack too. Id rather Jb release the colombias instead.
6 rings. Seriously? :l Oreo, Laney 5s and steel 10s catch my interest. Gotta see more pictures of the Gama/Laney Inspired 11s?
seriously im gonna get those 11's for customization purposes only, they gonna be black outs for sure but i dont know what the pods are gonna be like so semi black out i guess lol
As the C.E.O. of Nike/Jordan Brand we've been noticing a lot of kicks were stolen from our HQ & we've been BREACHED!!! XD (JK)
Thanks for trying to smuggle us some down low pics of these, but upgrade your phone. Was this pic taken with an iphone2? Already know I'm getting two of those XI's and one will be blacked out.
The 11s are dope, 10s are a must have, laney 5s sick, black n white nubuck 5s hot, them 6rings nice. Gimme the table
@BoricuaSole I hope so they're the pair I never got to own
@StupidFleeBILLS Thats for next year,Year of the 6s
@JahRemyKluminati No son of mars low...
@TheSneakerGuy That would be dope if you took the soles from the charcoal 11 lows and swapped them with the gamma 11s and aint the jumpman black n u got a charcoal 11 high.
@Chea_Movement If they release all the 8s this year wat are they releasing in the year of the 8s?
@Chea_Movement these are 4th quarter of da yr shoes... not summer or fall
@SkilledHooper82 Thats how I'm feelin. I could potentially pass on the 10s even though they're one of my favorite signatures comfort-wise, and I need a few to fill out my 10s. I'm thinking about those 11s though. More pics will probably sway me. For the most part, the new CWs are fails imo.
@skilledhooper82 same ones on my list except those 10's...the last ones that dropped where trash.squeaky as fuck i sold them for like $50 just to get rid of them lol.
@SkilledHooper82 Truuu!!! Not feeling those 11s at all... They should have just dropped the Columbia's
@fly li and 12s. cant forget about the 12s
@midzae - yeah bro i see them, and are those the same CW 1's to the right of those V's? toe box on those sure do look like em. Laney V's, steel X's and taxis XII's for me- game over. fucc tha rest.
@dopeman978 ppl like u got JB put out all this b/s.
@midzae - after re seach, those Vs u were referring to, in the back, i think those are the son of mars
@KEVINTHEH0929 unlike you, I don't just limit myself to just retro jordans! That I actually like seeing different Jordan kicks than the same ol 1- 14s that everyone and their moms sweat and hype about! Can't always limit your taste to just the same old kicks that everyone wears
