JORDAN BRAND UNVEILS SPRING 2017 COLLECTIONS
Jordan Brand gives us a preview of the future months to come, with 8 new colorways in 2017. The Jordan Retro had a very down year in 2016 as we saw many releases go to the outlets, the big question I have is what will the price point be for the new retros? Will they stay at $190 or will Jordan Brand be smart about this and drop the price down to $175? I think that would be a wise move, but I also think that the sheer volume that was released in 2016 was too much, hopefully they scale back a bit for the new year.
That being said, what do you think about the new colorways and releases that are dropping? The AJ5s and Aj8s are my favorite of the group!
