Sample Air Jordan BIN XIII Jordan Brand STOLE my design!

Okay so should I be a little upset? Last year I photo-shopped a pair of Air Jordan XIII's in what I think would be a NICE colorway and today I see via that Gentry of Jordan Brand was caught out wearing some "Sample" Air Jordan XIII BIN Collection's and please help me out here but don't these look AWFULLY similar to the pair I created in PS?

Pretty close huh, for the record I think the white inside on my pair would be better than the dark inside on Gentry's pair.

So what do you all think?

John Wall - Signs with Reebok

John Wall has signed a 5-year, $25 million deal with Reebok. Wall has plans that go beyond the basketball court, "The impact was basically me wanting to go where it's best for me and what can help build my brand and make me more marketable and having a better image."

John Wall Reebok

Now before I get to deep into this discussion I know Nike has the basketball market locked up. But could the fact that Nike has it on lock be the reason guys like Derrick Rose (Adidas) and John Wall are opting to go with other brands? Or are they just testing the waters much like Vince Carter did with Puma (Yikes) or D. Wade tested the waters with Converse? Both Vince and Wade eventually were lured under the Nike umbrella. The question is will there be another athlete to take a sneaker company above Nike or does Nike just have locked up?

Either way congrats to John Wall for signing a sneaker deal worth $25 million.

Air Jordan sneaker game getting too predictable?

The question is simple on the surface but could easily get deep if you really look at it. Is Jordan Brand getting to predictable & somewhat boring? I mean for years we have all been excited about Jordan's being retro-ed and for years the cycle has been the same, people hear of a shoe being retro-ed and get OVERLY EXCITED, as the shoe gets closer to release people begin to OVERLY COMPLAIN about quality, colors and so on, when the shoe actually releases the same people go OUT OF THERE WAY to buy them anyway after all the complaining. It doesn't stop there because the same people that complained the loudest continue to complain about the shoes they just spent their hard earned money on.

Of course I could go on and on about this subject but my question is not so much is Jordan Brand getting to predictable as it is are the sneakerheads too predictable and in many cases unsatisfiable?

In my opinion Jordan Brand has somewhat made a nice bounce back in 2010 thus far, with the exception of the recent QF II & Powder IX's (Plastic like leather killed them for me) and JB seems to have a STRONG fall/winter lineup schedule which will no doubt have sneakerheads lined up outside of retail shops on Saturday mornings. Quality of recent Jordans has been much better in 2010 then say 2006, Jordans are still selling out and people are still excited and we "sneakerheads" need to remember we are a small segment of the actual JB customer base. The question that I will leave my readers with is one I ask myself every time I see a YouTube Video or Forum post of a person complaining about a shoe they just bought, why buy it if you don't like it? Straight up hypebeast status when I see that... what other reason is there to buy them??? -Peace
