What i remember the most about the original white on black release was how beautiful the 3 stripe white teardrop looked like from afar. It was as striking as the black leather mudguard of the Jordan 11 concords. With the new colorways, the most distinctive feature of the shoe, the 3 stripe teardrop pattern was drowned out. Whats idiotic about adidas (unlike nike) is that they never re-release their classics in the same colors as the originals. Its practically never the same shoes.
