Did You Get Them!?

As you all know, the highly anticipated return of the "Concord" Air Jordan XI came on December 23rd.


All over the world, chaos ensued. One of the biggest sneaker releases of 2011. But the big question is, did you get them?



















As you can see from this teaser pic above, I did. If anyone knows anything about me, then you know that this is my all time favorite sneaker and colorway. The is the shoe that started it all for me back in 1995 when I saw them for the first time. Yes I have them from then, not originally, but through collecting over the years. Then in 2000 I was able to grab a few pairs, same with the DMP pack from 2006. So when I found out 100% that the Concord's were re-releasing this year I started planning right away as I had to have multiples.


So, I contacted friends throughout the year trying to secure some pairs, but it wasn't until closer to the release date that I really had to make moves. The pair pictured I received from a friend (thanks!) and got it in a few days before the official release so, one pair down. Then off to NDC for the two pair limit at midnight. The site was chaotic and just when it seemed that I would be unsuccessful, my order finally went through.


I am happy to report that my two pairs arrived this morning as I opted for the next day air shipping method in hopes I would have them for Christmas. I also headed over to Eastbay where their site was just as bad, and after over an hour, I got through and ordered my pair of infant soft bottoms and toddler hard bottoms as I have with the 2009 Space Jam and 2010 Cool Grey releases. I also have another pair of Concord's coming from said friend as we struck a trade, so those will be here late next week. All in all, I will have four pairs for myself and I am happy with that.

So if you were successful in getting them, unsuccessful or simply did not want or try to get them. Please share your stories in the comments section below!


Please note: I do not ever buy to re-sell. I buy for myself first and foremost so sorry folks, none of my pairs will be for sale. I plan to wear them all eventually. So with all that being said, expect a group shot of my 2011 Concord's as soon as they have all arrived. With that, I am signing off. Hope everyone who celebrates has a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

WDYWT 5/28/11: "Olympic" Air Jordan VI Retro






















Today I had to go out and run some errands. So, I figured i'd snap off a quick pic of what I decided on wearing today. 

Since the weather is FINALLY get nice out where I live and not raining, I figured i'd break out something I only wear with shorts. The Air Jordan VI is one of my all-time favorite Jordan's, and I love the way they look. So, I decided on breaking out the 2008 "Olympic" Air Jordan VI Retro for the first time in 2011. I know a lot of people dislike this colorway, but I personally like it. Is it my favorite VI? No. But, I still enjoy them. Take a look at these couple shots real quick, and expect more of these types of posts in the near future. I have also added a WDYWT  tab on the sidebar which will be updated as I make posts so if you missed one, you can visit that page to see a list of everything. Enjoy!

Grail Status: Air Jordan XI - White/Orange - Unreleased Sample























As seen on Sole Collector here.

This right here is something of epic proportions. An unreleased sample ORIGINAL Air Jordan XI colorway. It's not everyday that an unreleased sample colorway pops up for the public eye, and even rarer is an original! Now I label these "grail status," and that's because, they simply are to me. Probably one of only a few pairs out there and impossible to obtain. These will go right up there with the rest of the numerous Air Jordan XI's unreleased throughout the years that I can only dream of owning.

A nice white/orange colorway, these feature an all white mesh upper with orange patent leather. A nice black sockliner and an orange stip on the tongue that reads "Jumpman Jordan" in white separated by a black Jumpman. The number "23" found in orange on the back heel, and completed with a clear outsole. Simply stunning. I have yet to see a colorway of the Air Jordan XI I don't like, and this one definitely continues that trend. Enjoy these images below, and who knows, maybe one day I will have them! Most likely not, but one can dream.
