The blue tint is supposed to yellow a lot slower, and I've heard it's best to remove the paper and store the shoes in open ziploc bags inside the box to preserve them longer if you're thinking about having them deadstock.

I have VI's that still have the ice clear as vodka. I think the use a different compound for those one.
I've seen fake XI's made with a similar compound which didn't yellow

Nice. Retro VI's or OG's? I want to get some Black Infrared's next year, but I hate that Jordan is raising the price to $170. Turns out the rumors were true.

They each have features about them that deserve attention if you're like me and want to keep them looking new for as long as possible (midsole paint cracking on the III and icy sole yellowing on the XI).

I remember you said you sold some Space Jam XI's to a hipster kid on a skateboard. How much did you get for them and what was the condition of the icy soles?
I couldn't imagine playing basketball in a pair of Jordans. It's amazing MJ did that his whole career.

If you have them you should wear them... any time you're in shorts or jeans is a good time to wear your Jordans. But to ball in? If I had a pair of IIIs or VIs?... (the two best ones I never did get) No way. I'd no more ball in those than I would inside the Sistine Chapel.

Why? Too heavy? They never did feel like great performance shoes to me even back in the OG higher quality days. What amazes me is how well he moved in them. But, I'm sure the ones custom-made for him on the court were souped-up somehow.

nice way of putting it.

Especially these days. The paint jobs on those things are way too delicate.

I tried them on, they seem a little too narrow. Don't know if breaking them in would help so I didn't buy em... Need shoes for this season tho, preferably something light and easy to move in

Oh no; the performance on most Jordans (so I've heard) was good for its era.

But you don't buy a Ferrari to race in; you buy a Ferrari to drive 2 miles an hour in. You find some hatchback and throw in a couple turbos if you want to race.

I've balled in XVIIIs and XI and XIIIs and XIVs. Performance was awesome for all four. The XIVs are a really underrated shoe.
