Over the last three years, a prominent Nike Retro/Jordan Brand Retro release has cracked the exclusive list known as the Sneaker News Top 30 of the Year. In 2009 and 2011 , it was the two OG colorways of the Air Griffey Max 1, with the AJKO being sandwiched in-between. Does this Air Diamond Turf II have what it takes to make the 2012 list? We won’t go much into how badly sneakerheads have wanted these to hit stores again, but with the demand and anticipation rivaling that of a high-profile Air Jordan Retro, the Varsity Red ’49ers’ is definitely making a strong case for Top 30 inclusion. Some stores have begun to stock these ahead of the April 6th drop, but expect these everywhere tomorrow, or snag ’em right now from empire_sneakers07 on eBay.
