You always come up with reasons as to why you decide not to get a pair of sneakers, and oftentime you regret it. Just look at the comments on any sneaker release on Sole Collector, you lose count on how many people say “pass” instead of copping. Sometimes its okay to skip a release, especially when you know they’ll be re-re-retroed with the next five years.

But the Laneys are different, it’s a sneaker that’s holds a lot of history for the Jordan Brand, derived from Michael’s early days on the court at Laney High School. As sneakerheads we will always find a reason to buy the newest kicks dropping. So we came up with 10 reasons why you should have definitely bought the Laneys (assuming you didn't do so). One more pair wouldn't have really hurt, right?
