It’s been almost 3 years. 3 long years since the last time my favorite Jordan ever dropped. I went through withdraws. I took my pair out to rock, then put it back in the box because I didn’t want to mess it up, then I took it out again and put it on my feet.
I wore it in the winter. The summer. The spring. The fall. I wore it at any and every given opportunity, yet I somehow still managed to keep my favorite shoes ever crispy.
And now, they’re dropping again next weekend. That’s right, the Bred I’s are back on shelves next Saturday … and Jordan Brand was sure to do them justice. I’m geeked. The quality looks incredible, and copping them will give me a chance to put my 2013’s back on ice for a few years.
I’m trying to double up. To triple up. To quadruple up. I’m really trying to cop as many pairs as humanly possible (yes, I’m going to be calling all the plugs and filling out every single raffle I can) … and I wouldn’t even flip a single one of them.
Why do I love the Bred I so much, you might ask? That’s a fair question, and I have a three-part answer. The first part: the Jordan I is my favorite shoe ever. It’s clean. It’s simple yet beautiful. It looks great brand new, and some would say even better a little bit beat up. The second part: the Bred I is the best colorway of my favorite Jordan ever, so it’s a no-brainer for my favorite shoe. Just look at it. Hype aside, how could you not love it? It goes with literally everything you could want to wear. The third and final part: the backstory is just too great. MJ getting fined by the league every time he wore them? Nike paying the fine in a genus stroke of marketing? That’s truly the stuff of sneaker legend.
So catch me at the mall next week filling out raffles and keeping my fingers crossed. I’ll probably even wear my 2013’s when I’m over there just because I’m that much of a stan. Best of luck to you on getting your pair too … I just hope you’re copping to rock.
