Ladies and gentlmen, here it is. Quite possibly the most wanted Countdown pack of the year, the Air Jordan 6 and the Air Jordan 17’s. Already sold out on Finishline (then again sometimes they get more after like 4-5 am at their online site) and currently still available on Eastbay and Nikestore (as per Sneakernews.com).

For me, I never really planned on truely getting them, but since so many sneaker heads are calling this the re-release of the holy grail of sneakers (this is the first retro of the Carmines) and I do want to start a real sneaker collection, I was thinking maybe I’m wrong and I should pony up the money while its still avialable. yeah, I know; that sounds so lame that I am getting something cause everybody else wants it, but I seriously want my collection to be stuff I like while also having a high value that others would want too. getting all these sneakers is sort of a investment (only if the value of my sneakers increases of course)

Great video of the sneakers from Sneakgeekz on YouTube

As you can see, this is a very special year for Air Jordan and those who know this are buying Jordans like crazy. I already spent about 1000 Dollars on Jordans alone this year and will definality be spending another 640 AT LEAST before the year is out.

So much for getting a Alienware computer this year! lol I better settle for a Dell XPS or something to hold me over until next year (I just hate the idea of buying a computer and then the next year buying another one when I know how to put one together myself… but I really want an Alienware and I really need a new computer… Damn, I am going to be poor this year!). If Air Jordan had its own stock quote, I would have defiantly bought some stock cause they must be rolling in money.

Anyway, The pack has release and is popular. I actually saw 2 people wearing them today and totally expect many more sightings tomorrow. Much like in the past when the Carmines originally released, it will be hard to find something that will go with these sneakers. I suggest light blue jeans or shorts and a white tee. A black or white and red tee shirt will work too. Also what will work are some light tan pants. Everybody I saw wearing them today was wearing light tan pants.

Real smooth. I am willing to bet that I see the AJ6’s way more than the AJ17’s. Being that this is the holiday weekend, I also suspect that there will be a whole bunch of people out. Lets see what they will be wearing.

  1. So, did anybody buy these sneakers? They sold out at retailers and online unless you want to pay through the roof.

    Me, i didn’t get them. I will have to wait to pay through the roof later sometime on 2009 (I’m on a tight budget this year LOL)
