1985.



seeing these pictures, i just creamed my pants.

this is a collection of all the metallic Air Jordan Is than came out in 1985. if i ever am able to garner a single pair from this set, i would consider it a dream come true, much more if it was the entire collection. and i don't even consider myself a "collector" through the sense of the word (with down to 40 or 50+ pairs sitting at home, only three are still DS). i'm just someone who has pure and unbridled love for shoes and the fascination of its advances. and this set and the shoe itself propelled a new era in performance and athletic wear that is simply one of a kind.



sidenote: anyone who wants to challenge me on sneaker knowledge starting from 1972 and beyond, i'm willing to take it on.
