"Take A Stroll Down Memory Lane..."


This Post Was Inspired By My Big Brova Eno Bull www.thabullpen.blogspot.com ....We Discussed His New Post Which Led To The ILL Conversation About Air Jordans...If You Didn't Know Back Then Having Air Jordans Meant Something More That Just A Pair Of Sneakers On Your Feet...If Your A Sneaker Head You Probably Know What I'm Talking About. The Good Days! It Was Like Having A Rolex On Your Feet ...Or A Maserati, Porsche, Ferrari All That Combined! Not Only For The Status But For The Stories, Every Person Has That Story About Their First Pair Like It's Their First Time! (No Offense To The Virgins Lmao) But It's Like THAT! So I Would Like To Share With Ya My Story...

My Very First Pair Of Air Jordans Came When I Was The Age Of 8...My Parents Had Just Saved Up Enough Money To Buy My Sister And I Any Pair Of Shoes We Wanted. Back In The Day There Was A Dr. Jay Around My Block Where The Kids Sneakers Was In The Back Of The Store Up A Ramp Or Something Lol...Behind The Jackets And White Tees Lol...I Really Wanted A Pair Of Mountain Gears That Day But They Were Sold Out. So Thats When I Seen These Red And Black XIII's And I Fell In Love. I Wore Those Sneakers Every Day! Until My Feet Grew A Couple Sizes. And Had Em Up Until 2003...I Was Saving Them For My First Born...Thats How Special They Were To Me...But With That I Say This...I Still Wear My Air Jordans Even With The Decline Of The Brand Because I Have So Much Memories...So For Every Sneaker I Post I'll Share A Lil Story Behind Them...

I Got A Chance To Buy Them Again When They Re-Released! I Felt Like That Day In 98! Came Full Circle! I Actually Might Wear Them 2morrow! Just To Honor The Moment! Lol
The Perfect Marriage!

These Were Actually My Sisters...She Ain't Want Them No More And I More That Happily Accepted Them...I Wanted These Bad...But That Year I Was Getting Bad Grades So My Parents Gave Her Money And Deaded Me...Fuck It I Still Got Em At The End!...I Rarely Wear These...But They Fuckin FLYY!!
I Cried For These! I'm Not Even Sure When These Came In Play!...I Don't Wear Em @ All...I'm Stashing These!
I Got These Back In 2006...These ARE FUCKIN RIDICULOUS STILL!!...I Remember I Went Thru Every Store In The Bronx Looking For These...Then I Hit Every Store In Manhattan...Idk Where I Found These..But They Were In The Clutch! Cuz All The Stores Were Closing Down! I Was Like NOOOOO! I Gotta Find Them!

I Got These Back In 2008...Funny Part Is When I Wore Them The First Time With Aqua Skinnys...Sheeesssh!!! Everybody Thought I Was Fly Tho...Fuck IT!...I Wear These Once In While! They One Of My Favorite Of All Time!

"I Was Actually Looking For The White And Grey Ones...And The Dude And Footaction Looked At Me Like I Was Crazy...I Was About To Pass These Up For Something Else...Glad I Didn't! Got These In 2004!"


I Got These Back In 2006...These Were The Flyest Kicks Out At The Time...I Still Wear These Too...They Odee Comfortable...But In 2008 I Went Out To Honduras And Played Ball With Them In A Tournament...Some Dude Stepped On Them All Crazy...But I Don't Care I Still Love Em...
I Was Finished In The Sneaker Game When I Got These...But It's Funny Cuz Now-A-Days I Wear Em The Most! I Love These They Simple But Fly!

And A Final Message To Nike And The Jordan Brand!!!

DAMN CUZZO! THAT'S LOVE, THANKS FOR THE SHOUT OUT, AND I FULLY AGREE... YOU ALREADY KNOW THE STORY OF MY FIRST PAIR, IT WAS DOWN HILL FROM, THERE. I DON'T GET THE SAME FEELING I USED TO WHEN I SEE NEW "JORDANS" I GOTTA USE QUOTES CAUSE I DON'T FEEL MOST OF EM EVEN DESERVE THE SAME NAME. THIS IS WHY I STILL WEAR MY OLD PAIRS... NEAT UP AND YELLOW OR FRESH AND ICEY I STILL WEAR EM CAUSE I FEEL NOTHING BEATS THE OLD SCHOOL ORIGINALS OR THE EARLY ERA RETROS. ANYWAY CUZ, GREAT EFFIN POST LIKE ALWAYS! KEEP IT FLY!
