I remember when these were initially unveiled, the majority of the people were doggin’ them. From people saying Jordan 11s should never be low tops, to people complaining about the red inner lining. People managed to find something they didn’t like about the shoe, anything! As soon as release date arrived, it appeared that everybody and their momma wanted them! What’s up with that? Low top or mid top, the Jordan 11 Low Bred is clean! Once people found out that Jordan actually wore them as PEs back in the 90s, it was over.
An all-red Jordan retro is almost always a hit. This one was no different. A red leather upper combined with a speckled midsole. What’s not to love? Add in the story behind the shoe and it made it that much more appealing. Although I personally didn’t get a pair, I’m a sucka for the stories behind a shoe. For some reason it makes it more valuable and gives it more meaning, at least through my eyes. The Air Jordan 10 Bulls Over Broadway definitely deserves a spot in the top 10.
Let’s face it, the Air Jordan 7 Hare was the only “Hare” model that really mattered. Everything else we could have done without. Not only does the Jordan 7 “Hare” make the list, it’s also the only Jordan 7 that has come out that actually came out decent. I’m not too sure why Jordan Brand has a hard time manufacturing good looking 7s, but it appears that Jordan Brand did their thing on this one. Maybe it was the retro colorway that made people want it, or maybe it was that the Jordan 7 Hare actually looked good without trying too hard that made people gravitate to it. Either way, it gets a spot on the list.
You know this one was going to be here, and you know exactly why. Undoubtedly one of the most influential sneakers in the history of shoes, how can this not be on the top 10? As a matter of fact, if I had to rank them, simply because of the history behind it (and not the comfort!), the Jordan 1 Chicago would be at the top of the list. It’s a shame many of us weren’t able to grab a pair, either way, this definitely deserves a spot in the top 10!
The Jordan 11 Georgetown is a good example of a new colorway on a Jordan retro that actually looks good. It looks good because it doesn’t look as if it’s trying too hard. The colorway is not too complex yet it’s not too subtle or plain either. It’s a solid and classic color scheme that works well together. Many people don’t like the Jordan 11 Lows, but this is actually a really good colorway that fits the Jordan 11 Low rather well.
