Easy Otabor: “I probably got these five or six years ago. I always buy new pairs. I have like two ’01 “Breds” right now. I love original colorways and the quality then. Ever since high school when they came back out, I loved the Jordan 1s. They were all numbered and I had the all-silver 1s at the time. It’s a nice silhouette- it’s not too wide, not too bulky and it fits well with all my jeans now. I’m always for silhouettes.”
