The Air Jordan Anniversary releases, flopping?

So when Jordan Brand came up with the idea of releasing all white Jordan's and calling them the 25th Anniversary's I have to say initially I was kind of excited, however with the releases so far they seem to all be flopping, I, II, III, IV, and IX with the exception of the all white AJ 2010 which was limited. So I ask these questions, are they flopping because of people saving up for the already great line of retro's set to release this year, like the VI's, IX's, XI's etc? Are they flopping because when you hear something like anniversary edition you expect something unique about the releases, instead you get Pure III & IV's that are pretty much the same thing that released in recent years? Seriously JB went a long way to build the hype around the 3 releases this past weekend III, IV & IX's with contests and spreading the shoes out to make it like a hunt for all 3, is it flopping? As I type this on a Monday morning I see Eastbay still has a full size run of the III & IV, Finishline still has the IX's and almost everywhere still has the I and II. Are we all sleeping on releases that will become something special later or what? Comment away people, I'd like to know your opinion.

The Air Jordan I KO and my opinion on them...

What's up sneaker family. Lately I have been asked a countless number of times if I would be copping the Air Jordan I KO or what's my opinion on the Air Jordan I KO. No before you all get upset with me, understand the only person I agree with 100% of the time is myself, so although I am inspired by Air Jordan sneakers and the brand they do make decisions that I don't agree with... big example is the Fusions but let's not beat a dead horse anymore than we have.

In my opinion is really neutral at this point, although I do appreciate the shoe and the history behind it, I'm not really that happy with the way this retro is being presented with the already yellowed midsole to give it that historic look. That style works well with jeans and t-shirts but sneakers? The killer part is people are going nuts over these and I just have to raise this question to you all. As excited as you are to run out and cop a pair of shoes that already look worn like these Air Jordan KO's:

Would you be as excited to run out and cop the Air Jordan XI with an already yellow clear sole, so you could have that nice historic look? Please comment away and let me know your thoughts, perhaps I'm just on my own with this line of thinking.
