A recent rekindled flame.. I recall my first pair of Jordans being Air Jordan V’s, in white. Man, I loved those shoes. I don’t know how my parents afforded them. Or the VII’s in Bordeaux I got after that, or the XII’s I got after that!
Recently they have remade these shoes that started in the early 80’s. The first remake that caught my eye was of the Air Jordan I’s, but in University Blue(aka Carolina Blue) with a pic of MJ on the side taking a jumpshot during his days with the Tar Heels. Had to have them.
More recently the Air Jordan V’s were re-released in black. Growing up, a friend had black, and I always liked them, so when they hit the market, they were must haves as well, and the flame was rekindled.
There is some fairly serious sneakerheads out there, but I am not one of them. I only have four pairs now.. ;) JG.
