just my opinion, but i think Jordans are a waste of cash. i used to wear them all the time, but now you cant even play ball in them or walk in water. If you do.............they are gone. when Nike made them we used to play ball for 6 months or so before they went limp. maybe ive been wearin good shoes lately? cause the retros are not as good of quality as the first $120 - $160 pairs i used to buy under Nike. Now they just look good! call me boughetto, but my cash and my feet wear Ferragamo, Larken, and Cafaro. These are some of the most comfortable shoes ive worn and are handmade.
