My lovely wife surprised me at Valentine’s Day dinner with my first adult pair of Nike Air Jordans. I had a pair of original Jordan hi-tops in grade school, but when high school hit and the original 3′s came out, it was a different story. I was busy buying skate shoes and always wanted another pair of Jordans, but knew that I would ruin them skating.
Now the prices have gotten way out of hand, or you need to stand on line for a pair. As an adult, I’ve often considered purchasing a pair, but haven’t for one reason or another. I’d always looked to the Spizike as the all encompassing Jordan, pulling the best features from the early pairs. So, when I expressed interest in a new release we spied in Foot Locker, Edie wasted no time.
Unfortunately (and fortunately, may the truth be told), she gave them to me without a box. In fact, if I don’t wear them outdoors within a week, Edie has threatened to return them (she did keep the box at her office). I’ll be sure to only rock them on the most perfect of days, however, to keep them crispy.
