Retro 12 'Flu Game'. The black & red Retro 12 released in stores yesterday, but we didn't sell them. This was the same color MJ wore during the 1997 NBA Finals against Utah when he got sick the night before the game after eating a bad pizza. MJ put on a heroic performance and lead the Bulls to victory before collapsing in the locker room. He needed several bags of IV fluid after the game to help him recover.
'Space Jams' will have #45 on heel. The Space Jams will be releasing in December to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Space Jam movie (1996) starring MJ & Bugs Bunny. The shoe will supposedly have concord grape colored logos like the shoe from the movie and it will have #45 on the heel instead of #23. 'Nike Air' branding will also be on the insoles instead of the traditional Jumpman.
IN STOCK: Retro 9 Low 'Pantone'. We have the University Blue Retro 9 Low ready to ship. They won't be released in stores until June 11. Order from us here and you should receive them a week before the release date! (We also have the Retro 2 Low in stock early).

Disclaimer: The dates are for retail stores in the US, not for our website. The dates can change. Sometimes they're wrong.
Pippen's Olympic Nike Uptempo. Word is this 'USA' color might be releasing in the summer. Probably July. Scottie wore the shoe back in 1996 for Team USA during the Olympics. (This White & Gum color is expected to release in the summer too).
Another $400 Retro 4 Premium. An obsidian color with gold accents is expected to release in June. Since it's a premium version it'll be limited, with an MSRP of $400.
Fake pairs: Retro 12 'Wings'. People are reselling authentic pairs of the Retro 12 'Wings' for close to $1,000 (MSRP was $400). If you see someone selling multiple sizes for an unusually low price the shoes are going to be counterfeit. Beware of a fake app that's being advertised on instagram & facebook. It's a scam to sell you counterfeit shoes. (WE DON'T HAVE AN APP). We only sell shoes on our Shoes page. Nowhere else. Use common sense. If it looks too good to be true, it always is. Click here to report a fake ad you saw on Facebook or Instagram.
Instagram & Twitter. Here are our official Twitter and Instagram accounts. The only shoes we have for sale are listed on our Shoes page and we don't sell anywhere else. Beware of fake ads, apps, or websites using our 23isBACK™ name to trick you. (We don't have an app).
Horizon Low. The Jordan Horizon is a casual shoe based on the AJ 13, but it doesn't seem to be selling as well as the Jordan Future did last year. Meet the Horizon Low. It should release during the summer.
Video Tour of MJ's house. MJ's house in the north suburbs of Chicago is still for sale. Even though real estate experts say that it's overpriced for the area (asking price is around $15 million), if I won the Powerball lottery I'd buy it. Here's a detailed YouTube video of the house that has it's own basketball gym, 9 bedrooms, 19 bathrooms, a cigar room, and more. (Scottie Pippen lived in a house just a couple minutes away. It sold for less than $2 million in 1996).
Jordan Trunner. Several colors of this new Jordan Trunner will be coming out in the spring.
How to spot FAKE Jordans online. A lot of Jordans sold on the Internet are FAKE. Fake is another word for counterfeit or knockoff. You can usually tell within seconds if a shoe is fake. The first red flag is the selection. If a site or app appears to have EVERY Jordan shoe available in a variety of colors & sizes then you know something is fishy. No legit seller is going to have that many authentic pairs. The second red flag is the price. Some of the scam artists have gotten smart and actually raised their prices to trick you into thinking their shoes are real. If you find a non-retail website selling hard-to-find Jordans for around MSRP then they are likely FAKE. Always be suspicious. If you see the package was shipped from China or some other country it's very likely the shoes are fake. If you have any doubts don't buy.
