    Eh…Top one maybe. The others are a pass for me. Was never a ‘BK’ kid. But I’ll at least take a look with future releases. Though I do remember the ads: “It ain’t nuthin’ without the BK button”.


  • Flatsole

    Man, those sure bring back memories. Can’t say I’d grab any of these models/cw’s however.

  • Jerronimo

    I was living in LA when these first came out back in the 80’s. Crips used to wear these for the “BK” (Blood Killas) on the side. Peeps were getting shot and beat down for rockin these…no joke! What’s next STARTER jackets…..Wait I think I still have one in storage…hmmm

    Just not seein it, could you tell me what jordans you think these drew inspiration from?

    The only jordans that were released in 1989 were the Is, IIs, IIIs, and IVs. Neither of those look anything like those models.

    I guess the lace loops on the leaders are similar to the IIIs but thats about all I see.

  • curtis

  • E-MAN

    some companies need to know when to throw in the towel

    Man, I used to love the black and blue ones with the snake skin on the back part. That was around 87-88. I would cop if they came out with the snake skin ones.
