    I’ve lost a lace lock. I opened the box and only one shoe has one. I swear I’d put both back on before boxing them. :banghead:

    I hate the hassle of trying to get 11's, but i got a pair reserved at Footlocker. My 9's should finally arrive today too!

    I hope it’s not another 7 years before the next round of Concord 11’s.

    I’d like a ice blue sole but the 18s were iced and the 2011’s clear?

    2011 i think so, it seems they know how to make the ice blue last now, i'm surprised the jubilee didn't' have it.

    EDIT: I know people don’t like the 9’s but i love them! the size of this box is crazy though, it’s like a size 14 box for a 10.5 shoe...

    Hit on a reservation for the Jubilee 11s too. A hell of a way to wrap up my 2020 sneaker pickups. It's weird... the only 2 times I've hit on any raffles were both for 11s. Hopefully this luck continues and I have success with the Cool Greys next year :lol

    So I'm super duper outta the shoe game/loop and looked up the Jubilee's and all I gotta say is I'm not a fan of the "Jordan" print on the sides and i have horrible memories of those white icy sole turning a piss yellow on my 11 low Barons after around a month of lightly wearing them. Mind you I take care of all my shoes and always look ahead at where I'm stepping but man I genuinely wish Nike/Jordan would figure out a way from icy soles turning yellow. The icy blue soles IMO are slightly better as the yellowing isn't as noticable than that white sole.

    The "Jordan" print on the eyelets was actually on the original design sketches for the 11s, and I think that's the major appeal for the collectors. The Union LA Jordan 4s took a similar approach with their redesign too, and that's why I found it appealing.

    they can have them. looks ugly as shit to me.

    glad they ditched that print on the actual 11s, it is way too gaudy for me. all I have interest in at this point is a cool grey reissue.

    coworker got the 9s in. didnt know the black parts had a sparkle to it. not sure if I like it or not but its different. probably would have been upset if I got them without knowing and ended up with a sparkly shoe, but he likes them so oh well.

    the 9's have always had that, not every shoe but the sparkles are not new.

    I don't really don't hate them. The "Jordan" print on the eyelets does look funky to me even though there's history behind it. TBH I would buy them if I stumbled across them in retail,They're pretty much Space Jams lol.

    I like em! I was actually up and coulda snagged a pair of these but multiple things stopped me. 1st, I have barely wore any of my J's this year since I basically only go to work (nasty and dirty, no way I'm wearing them to work) the grocery store and home depot. Haven't really been anywhere else since March due to covid. Maybe wore my Concord/Space Jam 45s once each this year? 2nd, the white ice looks dirty/oxidized even quicker than the blue ice from what I've seen.

    Honestly, I feel like I'm basically out of the shoe game now. All I'm waiting for is a reissue of the Jordan 4 in all white so I can have my son customize them into these,
    Jordan 4 fear. Should be very easy for him to do based on what I've seen him do
