I have had several OG pairs but all have had structural flaws that have kept me from wearing them. Those didn't wear well. I am 100% certain the black/red, white/navy and cherrywood pairs will come back, maybe gingers, too. I hope to see some new colorways, too.
The XVI would be one of my very favorite Jordans, except for the gaitors or shrouds or whatever the fuck they are called. The shoe only looks cool with them on it, but it feels super weird to put them on.
I thought the 16.5--XVI upper with XVII tooling--looked pretty nice with no shroud, and it also was not as flimsy. Much better shoe for hoops, but lacked the aesthetic WOW factor of the shrouded up XVIs for sure.
