2020 was the year the AJ1 died.
What makes you say that?
These are the 2020 to present 1 highs, missing Balvins


For me, I only bought/kept 4 (mochas, both japans, and hyper royals- obviously 2021)

So I kinda agree 1s died in 2020 in the sense they released so much crap. But other side of me looks at these releases and I see a lot of releases that were pretty straight - I just didn’t want em personally for various reasons

Ok cool. They released a lot of 1s. What's the problem? You're not obligated to like or buy all of them. I don't see the issue with having a greater variety to choose from. I see people wearing mochas every time I step out the house here in NYC. Good for them, they're a fire shoe. I'm glad I got mines to wear as well. The jordan 1 is considered by many to be the greatest sneaker ever so to me, the more the merrier. I'm pretty happy with my five pairs of 1s and will be happy to pick up the purple metallic wannabe joints coming out soon. Makes no difference to me if they release every color of the rainbow, I'll simply pick the ones I like. Not sure why it matters what else is out there if you're only picking up the ones you actually want.

i mean you're not wrong
i think there's a significant chunk of 1's heads that are bothered by the fact that the 1 has become a strictly retro + shoe now

Lol @ what’s the problem.

Aftee dude told you what the problem is lol
There's really no problem at all. It's pretty normal. If you went to a clothing store, you wanna see only two things on the rack or do you wanna have some options to choose from? Do you order the whole menu when you go out to a restaurant, or do you just pick what you want that night? If you don't like it and/or don't want it, ignore it. You'll be ok.

206to813 206to813 I'm sorry, I just don't get it. 1's have been getting milked like this for over a decade. If it wasn't dead after that, it's not dead now. I'd take almost all those "dead" 2020 releases over the **** they churned out pre-Nike air/remaster. Y'all rather go back to only a handful of 1s per year, with these being the 1s?

I forgot they dropped today and my SNKRS app reverted all the upcoming drops to "Notify Me", basically deleting all the notifications I'd turned on.

So yeah - completely missed them. I was like one of three people on NT who actually liked these monstrosities, too :lol:

Some people weren't around during the Alpha years, apparently :nerd:

Can’t help but laugh at the ones who complain about prices on things like Chicago 1s and stuff when they could be had for cheap back during release day. Outside of Banneds/Frags there weren’t too many 1s that had a crazy value right after release.

Join during the hype, pay the hype prices *shrug*

It's not a problem to you, and that's fine.

Your comparison is also a reach, but I'll allow it.

I just believe models like the 1 should be maxed out at a certain point, and not a different goofy color every week.

When's the last time you were excited for a OG High? Be honest.

It's been years for me.
