Flight Club plans on sticking it to struggle resellers by no longer accepting a number of recent Air Jordan releases. We got a look at the upcoming Air Jordan 11 “72-10” featuring what’s promised to be the most premium construction to ever hit Mike’s patent leather classic. Meanwhile people almost got tricked by Complex and Extra Butter to buy K Mart’s knock off Air Jordan 3 all in the name of hype. Stick around for more of the week’s Top Stories and stay tuned for more of the latest updates right here on Sneaker News.
