Despite our love for the Jordan I, we won’t argue that there aren’t many shoes on the market more hot and cold than the classic high top. The shoe will either blow out the day of release (like the Royal I’s did recently) or reach super-duper-deep discount status at Nike outlets all over the country (like the yin-yang pack I’s did).
So with the release of the classic Metallic Red I’s on the horizon (May 6th to be specific), we can’t help but wonder: will they sell out, or will they sit on shelves and hit outlets like the Metallic Navy did?
Here’s what we think: they’ll fall right in the middle ground. Sure, they’re an OG colorway, but they don’t have the hype surrounding them that a pair of Breds or Royals do. However, they’re a super-clean shoe and the red/white colorway is here in a timely fashion, as the weather is just starting to warm up.
The amount of time that the Metallic Navy I’s have been lingering around is somewhat shocking to us, and we’ve gotta say: we’d be extremely surprised if the same thing wound up happening with these metallic red jawns.
Guess we’ve only got one way to find out though. We’ll just have to wait and see how they do on the 6th and beyond.
What do you think of the Metallic Red I’s? Are you a fan, or is the classic colorway too plain for you? Do you think they’ll sell fast or hit outlets for the dirt like the Metallic Navy jawns?
