Retro 11's are fire. One of my favorite J's. I'm too old to be wearing powdered blue Jordan's though.

Our culture is far too materialistic

I grew up idolizing my cousin. All I wanted was Jordan's and new girls everyday. That's what I wanted growing up. I'm 26 now with a great career and live in Miami Beach.

These are good college kids still..let them enjoy it my man.

The sneaker head culture is a cult that that old heads don't understand. With J's, it's more than the material, it represents you.

i get it and in truth it makes me happy to see them so happy

But it's also sad for poor and minority people to be represented by a shoe

A shoe manufactured by poor and minority children making pennies so billionaires can make more

But ok
Glad to see these kids celebrate
They truly deserve their joy
