Say what you want but this 2004 release has Jordan XXIII platinum edition written all over them.


No, I’m not saying they look in anyway like the Jordan 23 but I am saying that this shoe that released 4 years earlier uses a similar type of grey suede in combination with carolina blue that gives off that “inspired” vibe.

The low top green color way was also fresh.


Either way this Rucker edition was also notable because street ball saw a resurgence during this time period and Rucker gained world wide mainstream recognition via video mixtape’s and artist name dropping. Take a trip back to 2004 below!
