Twitter Conversations: The Air Jordan “Ultimate Gift of Flight” Pack
Making plenty of noise last week was the Air Jordan “Ultimate Gift of Flight” pack, a two sneaker set that is poised to show up in December with a rumored $500 pricetag. The group presents a dilemma that you’re no doubt familiar with: Is such a price worth it when Retro 11s top out at $185 and the XX9 retails for $225? Or maybe if you’re only going for the “Pantone” Jordan 11 in the set? We took to Twitter to find out what our readers thought about those questions and about the history of Jordan packs in general. Remember that Jordan Brand has plenty of times before gone the route of putting two retro pairs together for a pack release, but given the shoes and the price, it’s time to revisit this topic.
Unsurprisingly, the AJ11s are the most cherished historically. That’s not due to any particular fault of newer models like the Jordan XX9 and the Jordan CP3.VII that have recently been involved with these sort of box sets, but there’s always been a clear and heavy bias towards retros as far as Jordan Brand fans are concerned. We posed some questions to see what you had to say on the topic of Jordan packs and the upcoming Air Jordan “Ultimate Gift of Flight” pack, so read on below and make sure to follow @SneakerNews on Twitter for a chance to participate in this weekly sneaker discussions.
