Whether you admit it or not, everyone compares Retro models to OG’s… and in this case Retro to Re-Retro.
The ’05 Flint XIIIs are seen here side by side with the ’10 Flint’s giving us a good look at any changes. Are there any changes? Of course, they may be subtle but they exist. The French Blue side panels are slightly different in shade; the blue insole is replaced with grey and that basically is it as far as materials are concerned.
What is most apparent is the quality, or the lack of quality we should say. The 2005’s are a breath of fresh air disguised in the form of a sneaker. The 2010’s on the other hand look like they are sloppily manufactured to say the least. Now we get what we get with Jordan Brand, especially within the last 3 or 4 years. But isn’t it time they put the ‘Jordan’ back into the Brand? You know, “Quality basketball products inspired by the greatest player ever.”
