    Hopefully they keep it like it was originally with the leather and don’t change it like the flu game 12′s

    2. Marcus Mccullough says:

      already have these?like 3 months ago. i wanna see the team jordans the ones tony kukoc wore in the playoffs. now those the ones i want

      1. Word! Those and the Jumpman Pro Quick that Eddie Jones wore, were pretty iconic, to not be an actual numbered Jordan.

          Jumpman Pro retros dropped in 09, although they were changed up a bit
          (way to go JB -_-)

        2. DugLast says:

          You’re in luck. Sneaker Files says the Jumpan Pro Quick is dropping again next year.
