The Life and Culture of Kicks

Air Jordan Space Jam + Black Friday + QuickStrike = HypeBeasts

SPACE JAM - AJ 11

(why a quickstrike??? WHY?????)

I have NO IDEA why Brand Jordan and Nike has decided to make the Space Jam Air Jordan 11 a quickstrike (as some have reported) and I am not sure if it is a good idea or a bad one. It makes the release more coveted that’s for sure, but at the same time what will happen is that people who are just in it for the money will buy up the sneakers and then sell them online for some crazy profit. I don’t mind them making a few couple hundred off a pair, but several hundred to a thousand? No.

I still hold out hope that Brand Jordan will, at the very least, make this a limited release rather than a quickstrike (the best of all worlds would be to just let it come out as a general release). I wanted to get 2 pair ever since I heard that it was coming out, but now that it is a quickstrike, I may miss out completly along with many others.

And lets not talk about the $175 dollar price tag… a commenter on The Shoe Game posted allot of the possible places that they will release at… here is a short list:
