The VI’s, (#6), were my first Jordans. I made a trade for them, I think I traded a sheepskin hat for a beat up pair of infra-red VI’s. They were bigger than my size too, I wear a size 7, they were an 8 1/2 or something. I didn’t even care, I had to have them. I wore them recently, like maybe a year ago, now these are the OG VI’s from '90, and I went to take out the garbage, and the soles fell apart! There was foam flying everywhere, all in the air, and I was coughing, and it was an embarrassing sight. I live in the hood, so people outside saw it and were looking at me like "What the hell is wrong with this guy?" So I just took the sneakers off my feet and just threw them in the garbage, and was like 'What could you do?' I couldn’t hold onto them too long cause they were cracking in the front as well, so I would take a black marker and fill them in, and do whatever have you. But I couldn’t do anything for that, not even a shoe doctor could fix that.
