Look, if you’ve had the pleasure (or misfortune depending on what kind of kicks you prefer) of reading my work here on KoF for the past few years, you’ll know that my taste in Air Jordan retros typically starts and stops with colorways that were actually around when I was a kid. There are a few exceptions to be sure, but for the most part, if MJ didn’t wear them, I don’t care. Now that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t care either because hey, “buy/wear what you like,” but don’t expect everybody to fawn over them just because they’re retros and have a Jumpman on them. Forgive me if I don’t share your excitement when I hear things like “Green Glow” or “Lady Liberty” or “Gamma Blue,” I’ll leave to the younger generation to enjoy.
That being said, if there is one pair of kicks that will make me line up like a crazy person like I did (as a joke) for the Air Jordan 6 “Black/Infrared” a few months ago, it’s the upcoming Air Jordan 10 “Double Nickel” release. Even though I own a pair of the 2012 retro, the “45” makes all the difference in the world. Honestly, nothing else matters this month. Gold Foams, Wheat LeBrons, Kamiazes with Pumps, worldwide Yeezy Boost drops and retros that may or may not reference Marvin the Martian are great and all, but March 28 is the biggest date in the sneaker calendar year so far. Enjoy everything else that’s dropping this month, I guess. I’ll be counting down the days….
All release dates and prices are subject to change because of course they are.
