When the news broke of Jordan Brand retiring the Jordan 3’s, you could hear a collective gasp from sneaker heads all over the world. They told us not to fret though, basically reassuring us that they are going back to the old drawing board with the retro Jordan. The news was promising, mainly because there was a noticeable decline in the overall quality of the sneaker. The complaints came far and wide as the sneakers just didn’t hold up as long as they used too and just didn’t live up to the increasing price tag.
Now we can’t compare the amount of stress a basketball player puts on a sneaker compared to someone just walking in them. It’s just the mere fact the sneaker fell apart so easily,the photo clearly shows the sneaker can’t handle any stress anymore. We are sure Jordan Brand peeped that video and heard everyone’s complaints hence the decision to “remaster” their sneakers. Now of course with the use of better materials means higher prices, as if a pair of Jordans weren’t expensive enough. Lets not even count the mom and pop joints who are selling the sneakers for ridiculous prices. A pair of the remastered J’s are starting at $190 plus tax you looking at $200 easy, low top Jordans will retail at $170.
A lot of folks are going to be looking at the cashier funny after they ring up a pair of those bad boys. We understand the increase in price if the quality is going to be dramatically improved. BUT it’s also ridiculous in the same sense for a pair of shoes that doesn’t even use that much sneaker technology like Lebron James sneaker.
One things for sure though we still believe Jordan loyalist will line up for the sneakers regardless of the price. Plus the revealed line-up for 2015 is too impressive to pass on. Take a peak on what Jordan has in store for sneakerheads below…
