11/1/1997 retail $150 20yrs ago today the launch cw of the #JordanXIII, and 1st #MichaelJordan signature sneaker of #JordanBrand dropped. I remember the 1st time I seen them. It was after school 7th grade, and a girl got off the bus. I seen them on her feet, and I said to myself “those are ugly!!! They must be the new Jordan’s...” lol. I get home, and the new #EastbayMagazine is in my mailbox. I open it up and boom!!! The #AirJordan13 right there. I thought they were even more ugly, but I wanted to see that hologram, and hidden lacing system. I remember seeing antifreeze on the color description, and directly looked at the hologram on the sole. I thought that was dope too. Like the XII I knew better cw’s had to BEE on the way, and I couldn’t wait to see. The launch cw of the #FoampositePro also dropped 20yrs ago today “Pearls”. #CEOJordan #Jordan13 #Jordan13s #TinkerHatfield #TeamJordan #Jumpman23

10/24/1998 retail $115 19yrs ago today almost a year after #JordanBrand products were available to the world, and a week before the launch release of the #JordanXIV they dropped their first woman’s sneaker. At the time when these dropped I thought they looked better than the #JordanXIII. I’ve always wondered where all of the bigger sizes ended up. It would be sick to unds a size 11.5m right now. Back then I used to wish they would’ve dropped a wht/true-red, flint, playoff, blk/true-red, & blk/nvy cw like the men’s #Jordan13. For a brand in its infancy these showed they were heading in the right direction. If these ever retro please don’t call them “She Got Games”... #WMNSJordan #BrandJordan #TeamJordan #Jumpman23 #AirJordan #WomensJordans #LadyJordan #MichaelJordan #WomensBasketball #WNBA #EastbayMagazine

#tbt Back to school '97. I remember these dropped the end of August early September '97, and as soon as I laid my eyes on them I knew I wanted them. I knew because of the price I wasn't gonna get them, but when it was time to go back to school shopping I tried lol. It was an instant no from my gma, and she told me to choose another sneaker that was cheaper. I told her I only want these and nothing else. She told me again it wasn't happening, and to just pick another pair. I told her no if I can't have these I'm not picking anything. She called my bluff, and I ended up going back to school my 7th grade year with a pair of #FilaWeave I wore all summer. I remember the 1st day of school going in to the cafeteria in the morning I just stared at everyone's feet to see if any one had them, and like 3 pple had them on 😡. I just remember that neon swoosh and sole glowing. I finally got a chance to own them 10yrs later in 2007, but only got to wear them 1x before the air bag deflated on me lol. 2yrs later in '09 the retro dropped around my b-day and I copped those, but the shape and tiny air bag threw me off. Other than that, and leather quality they were pretty close to the og's, but didn't give me that same feeling. 20yrs later these are still one of my top 5 grails, and every time I look at the '97 og's I get the same feeling I did back when I 1st laid eyes on them. #TotalMaxUptempo #NeonUptempos #TotalAir #TotalMax #EricAvar #ReggieMiller #TimDuncan #RayAllen #MasterP #NikeTotalMaxUptempo #NikeUptempo #Uptempos #NikeBasketball #EastbayMagazine #FootLocker

6/4/1997 retail $140 20yrs ago today the final installment to the original #JordanXII series released. What a way to end the #Jordan12 with a bang. Each XII was unique, but imo these stood out the most. What grabbed my attention the most was the silver #Jumpman tab especially since the other colorways tabs match the lizard print. These quickly became a lot of people's favorite. I wanted these bad because this was one of the cw I mocked up earlier that year. I used to go to my local mom & pop shop after school, and just stare at them lol. I remember after the #ChicagoBulls won the championship 2 classmates of mine popped up with these that following Monday with the '97 #Bulls championship shirt lol. #TWO3 #RisingSun #PlayoffXII #Playoff12 #Playoff12s #AirJordan12 #NikeAirJordan #AirJordan #Jumpman23 #TeamJordan #JordanBrand #MichaelJordan #TinkerHatfield #EastbayMagazine #5thRing

#FoampositeFriday June 1997 retail $180 20yrs ago this month these dropped. I remember opening up the new late May '97 #EastbayMagazine and there they were next to the #PlayoffXII. I wanted them bad, but quickly looked at the price tag and knew that wasn't an option. I started calculating how many lawns I had to cut just to cop. I figured no one would have them my age because of the price tag. Around my way if you popped up with a $160+ sneaker at my age either you had a job, both parents in the household, the only child, spoiled, your grandma really loved you, got great grades, a serious ball player, or on that block taking penitentiary chances. I was right no one in my school popped up with them, and neither did I. All I could think was damn it would of been nice if I was the only one with them 😂. #RoyalFoams #Represent1Cent #TeamPenny #1CentTuesday #Foamposites #FoamPositeOne #AirFoamposite #AirFoampositeOne #Posites #EricAvar #Daewoo #ScottiePippen #PennyHardaway #LilPenny #MikeBibby #NeonRoyal #ShowYourFoams #FoampositesOnly #FoampositeShowCase #FoamFriday #WiedenKennedy #TheNewYorkTimes

5/24/2003 retail $115 14yrs ago today the return of the #OGXI low colorways hit shelves. I got my pairs 2 weeks early. The #CobaltXI were one of my favorite J's, and back in August '96 the og was actually my collection started. Back in '00 when the XI's retroed I said if they bring back the cobalts I was gonna cop 2 pairs, but they didn't. I started collecting doubles back in '01, but this was actually the 1st time I doubled up on a new release in store. I actually copped 2 pairs of cobalts, and 1 pair of the (blk/red) cw so I really copped 3 pairs. It was a very exciting moment for me because I felt as if my collection came full circle. As soon as I took them out of the box they had the same smell as the og's. The first thing I noticed was "I.E." wasn't on the cobalt box label, the color difference on the mudguard & #ElephantPrint, quality of the leather, and how stiff and flat the tongue was. That didn't make me LoVe them any less. I remember all of the collectors at the time were complaining about the black/red pair black sole & having elephant print, but as soon as the catalog scans hit the net a few months prior to the release I immediately thought of the pair that was in the #EastbayMagazine back in July & August '96 with a black sole, and the pair #LilPenny cut in half lol. I thought the black translucent sole was a plus because they would stay fresh forever if you really took care of them. The only thing was I wish they had the blk/red carbon fiber like the og's. That's another thing I lOvE about the '03 #Cobalts as well. If you clean the soles after every wear they pretty much stay fresh with minimum yellowing. I still would like to see an og retro of the #PlayoffXI low to drop with the smoke grey soles, red/black carbon fiber, and red traction pods. 2003 was one of my favorite years in sneakers so much heat was on shelves at that time... #Bulls11 #Cobalt11 #JordanXI #Jordan11 #Retro11 #Retro11s #Jordan11low #JordanXILow #11Low #XILow #11LowIE #JordanBrand #Jumpman23 #TeamJordan #MichaelJordan #TinkerHatfield

Back to school '96 6th grade. My gma asking me what kicks I wanted. I told her the cobalts she was tryna make me get the blk/red and I told her no because everyone will go for those I wanna BEE the only one with the white pair. I was right I was the only one in my school with them too. My sister got the wht/nvy much uptempos. I remember the 1st day of school everyone had the much uptempos and only like 1 person had the more uptempos. I remember when we went to JCPenny to get my cobalts and my foot grew to a men's 8 from a size 6 that summer and my gma wasn't tryna spend that $115, but I had to put that sad face on and she fell victim and copped 😬. I remember opening the box as soon as I got home and the crisp smell over powering my room and that clear sole 🔥. Everyone on my block came over to see them until my gma yelled at me and told me to go put them up. The night before school I couldn't sleep I was dressed by 4am and kept walking around the house looking down at my feet. When it was sunrise I was outside looking at the sun beams hit that beautiful sole. Everyday when it was time to take them off I made sure I cleaned them. This sneaker means the most to me because that was my trouble years and I been through the most bs as a kid with them on my feet. Just another BEE KNOWBLES flashback thanks for the read 😂😭. #XILow #11Low #CobaltXI #11LowIE #OgXI #PlayoffXI #BKNOWBLES #BEEKNOWBLES #BEE_KNOWBLES #EastbayMagazine

Damn I just realized around this time 20yrs ago I received my first @officialeastbay magazine. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was 9yrs old about to turn 10 and was ready for my 4th grade year to be over with. I was at one of my childhood friends house and he said he had a magazine that had nothing but sneakers in it. He showed me this eastbay and I had to have one, what was even better he told me it was free but I didn't believe him lol. We went to the pay phone and dialed the toll free number and started to order it for me. I got scared once they started asking me my info so I had to pass him the phone to order for me, but the entire time I'm in the background telling him to make sure it's free 😂. About 2 weeks go by and I finally get this June 1995 issue in the mail and instantly fell in love with the Nike Air Turmoil on the cover. The 1st thing my grandma said when she seen me get this magazine in the mail was "boy that better be free!!!". Once I got my issue I quickly told more of my friends about it and helped them order theirs. Before I started going on the Internet in 98' for info on sneakers #Eastbay was my main source. I have this to thank for a lot of my sneaker knowledge. #BKNOWBLES #BEEKNOWBLES #BEE_KNOWBLES #EastbayMagazine

5/7/1997 retail $120. 20yrs ago today the debut of the precursor to what was to come 6 months later hit shelves. "Jordan logos on the sneaker, but not baring #MichaelJordans name or even a Bulls colorway? They look like the #Jordan12s, and reminded me of the low top mystery #Jordans I own that dropped summer '96 that have the #Jordan11s soles. These have the #Jumpman rubber tab, and metal eyelets on them like the #Jordan12, but what exactly are these? Either way I want them!!!" That what was going on in my my mind the 1st time seeing these. #NikeJumpmanPro #JumpmanPro #JumpmanPros #Jumpman #Jumpmans #Jumpman23 #JordanBrand #Jordan11 #JordanXI #Jordan12 #JordanXII #EricAvar #MichaelJordan #KevinGarnett #KG21 #TheKid #TheBigTicket #EddieJones #EJ6 #TeamJordan #EastbayMagazine

@Regrann from @bee.knowbles - #EastbayMagazine May '97. The Nike Air Ubiquitous Max. #Grails. These Came Out At The End Of 10th Grade When I First Started Working And Making My Own Money. Not Sure Why I Never Got These....Even When I Started Buying On Ebay In The Early 2000s These Would Never Be Listed For Sale. Nike Did Retro This Shoe In 2000 As A Footaction Exclusive, But Only In All White and White And Navy. #nike #nikeair #airubiquitousmax #airubiquitous #jerryrice #eastbay #EastbayMagazine #1997 #summer1997 #97 #igsneakerheads #igsneakercommunity

#EastbayMagazine May '97. The end of my 6th grade year it was time for me to cop a new pair of kicks because my #Cobalt11s were done. I remember when this issue came in the mail, and seeing these plastered on the cover I fell in LoVe instantly. The issue got even better as I started turning the pages seeing the #FoampositeOne, #Playoff12s, blk/red #Pippen1, & new colorways of the #ReebokDMX2000. I wanted all pairs bad, but didn't get them lol. I knew the #RoyalFoams & #UbiquitousMax were a definite no, but I had high hopes for the #Playoff12, & the wht/navy patent leather #ShakeNDestrukt since I missed out on the wht/red #Jordan12, #Obsidian12s, #GriffeyMax2, & #ZoomFlightFive earlier that year due to my grades and behavior. I just knew I was gonna get blessed with the #PlayoffXII when they dropped in June especially since that's my b-day month ♊️. If I couldn't get the playoffs I was hoping for the new #JumpmanPros. I tried to wait it out, but my gma wasn't tryna hear that so I had to settle for the (wht/blk/red) #FilaWeave 😑. Everyone in school liked them, but I hated them lol. To me I felt like I down graded. That was the tail end of the day's of #Fila still being considered cool to my generation. I remember the UNC #FilaStack just dropped, and I wanted those bad. #NikeUbiquitousMaX #JerryRice #RoyJonesJr #Crosstraining
