The last time I bought a pair of Air Jordans in a colorway I didn't like was back in 2002 when I saw a pair of Cherrywood XVIs in my size at Crossings Department Store on the 3rd level of National Bookstore Quezon Ave.

I never thought I'd buy another odd pair of Air Jordans but I've been shopping around for a new pair of basketball shoes and when I saw these at an outlet store in Subic for only 2,598 pesos, I didn't think twice and copped the cleanest size 10s available.


I was hesitant to break them out because they were LS, not I.E. (I hate patent leather Air Jordans except for the XVIs) but they turned out better than expected.

My feet are at home in a pair of XI Lows.

The XI Low I.E. is one of my favorite Jordans. Top 5 believe it or not. I love how the shoe fits, breathable mesh panels, cement print, icey soles and the high school memories it brings when I think of my original pair (hit a game winning shot with the I.E.). This pair might be different but the feel of the shoe is the same so I'm happy with it.

Next time you're in Subic, you might want to check out the outlet store next to Royal Subic Duty Free Mall. There's not much there but they still have around 15 pairs of the Air Jordan posted above. 3 more pairs of size 10, all deadstock.

I'm looking to go back soon to cop another pair.
