    But, why do you think they look stupid on you? If it’s a “I just do” type thing that’s cool but I am actually wondering.

    Some things look right on some people and not so good on others. Like slim cut jeans. They look right on some people, not on others.

    I'm a big guy. I don't wear high tops bc I feel like they make me look like a fire hydrant.

    I get this and I am not trying to be dense. Maybe I am thinking too much about it. If it’s just a personal thing do be it.

    I’m not very tall so high tops look like knee high boots on me.

    Haha I am same. Lost some weight so I am down to about 225 at 6 feet tall. But I used to wear shorts past my knees and high tops. I have short legs so people saw about 6 inches of a huge calf. I cringe at what I used to think looked good...woof.

    It blows my mind how i liked them and used to think big baggy clothes looked good on me. Wish i could go back and punch myself in the face.

    Aj1 highs look dope regardless, don’t be afraid to rock them.

    that being said, I would totally flip that pair and snag some actual banneds or Chicago’s

    Add in my pasty white legs after a terrible Michigan winter with no sun, those poor grand valley girls I was trying to holler at in late April.

    Woke up late after moving yesterday and the nc to chi was thankfully not sold out in my size. Was going to buy off stockx but that saved about $50. I didn’t think I could pull of aj1 but they’re slimmer than most highs and very easy to wear. With a modern cut pant they look great.

    L city for me. I probably didnt deserve them though because i didnt buy those black satin ones that are sitting everywhere.

    they are cheap on stockx and will prob come down if you want them. I woke up and checked 16 minutes after release and my size was still there. First women’s release I’ve been able to buy in a 13.5

    I saw they went up to a womens 16.5 which is a mens 15. No idea why they didnt just call it a mens release. Unless they have some kind of quota they have to meet on womens releases.

    Also with how much everyone wants banned's and how easy they would be to customize into them Im surprised the price isnt much higher. That was kind of my plan for them if I had gotten them.

    Not an AJ1 guy, but that's one of my favorite colorways I've seen. The red Nike Air on the tongue looks so good with the green and black.

    they aren’t going to go for crazy amount in the future so why buy them if you’re not going to wear them?

    She asks the same question. I don't have a good answer. I had 1 pair come in yesterday, 3 pair today. Havent opened any of them. 1 coming in tomorrow. No way I wear them all. But if one day I wake up and want to wear a green AJ1, I'll be set. If I don't, well I'll figure that out later.

    it’s all good. I am not judging it’s your money spend how it makes you happy. I was just wondering.

    I just sometimes am curious about stuff so I ask. I like to learn about what makes people tick and why people do things that seem strange to me. Your “idk” answer is truthful and I appreciate your honesty. If you get them and don’t like them if I can’t get a pair maybe you’ll sell them to me.

    I used to open and wear most things right away. Then I started buying og J's just bc and that started a bad habit of buying and not wearing. Now I have close to 100 pair backed up that I haven't worn. Most is stuff I will wear, or at least plan on, just haven't yet. Like the am90 city pack that came in this week. That's 5 pair and I like 4 of the 5 but idk when I'll actually wear them. I know its dumb but I still buy shit. I need to start a new account and just transfer money into it instead of buying random shit and then do something big with that account every few months.

    Got my hopes up for a 8.5. Should have known better.
    I think decent Chicagos or Black Toes could be made out of them relatively easy.

    Might check your local store for your size. Mine had them in store on sale. I’ve seen several customs of them on Instagram that turned out great.
