The 2013 Air Jordan retro line up has been one chock full of surprises. Chief amongst them has been the return of “Nike Air” branding across both the Air Jordan 1 and the Air Jordan III. The latest pair of the former to suit up with that look is this, the unexpected bringback of the super limited Air Jordan 1 XQ just six years after its original release. The retro isn’t a one to one replication though-as you can see there are a couple additional differences to mark it off from the first drop. Continue reading to get a look at those and tell us if you’ve got a way to get your hands on this China-only reissue.
Jb fans need to start asking why such a quality down grade. It's not like the prices haven't went up by $25-30. SMH nike/JB raping heads now days
i think it's safe to say for SN writer next time if u pick the photo from someone else at least give credit to original resources
Materials are different the 07 has a satin like material through the eyelets and collar. Where the 2013 is leather, at least with the Nike air OG it looks good plus better leather then GR. The Nike Air really on these no big deal cause these were never OG's
well who the fuck doesn't want the og? whatever at least they got the Nike Air. Hope they will continue that.
The 2007 looks better in materials and detail, but the gum sole, Nike Air, and leather neck look good on the 2013. IMO I'd rather have the 2007. It just looks better quality.
@DodiSamartino I don't know if the post was edited, but it's there now
@DodiSamartino Damn good catch on that one!
@jhoward Dont sleep on the leather of the 2013's tho...cause the leather is very soft in the inner lining. and it great quality....better then the royals n others.
