I feel that sneakers deserve their own discussion apart from the fashion thread. I got some pretty good responses in the fashion thread when I asked what I should wear with my AJ 4s, but this response set me off:

So if you're in ^^^^^that category, FFS, GTFO.

Let's talk release dates, collections, fashion suggestions, etc. If it pertains to sneakers, it goes in here.

I was spending alot of money on sneaks for a while but haven't bought anything in a long time. Only things really notable that I have are 2 pair of retro 6's and pair of the Skunk SB dunks. Numerous pairs of AF1's around too.

I don't really care for many J's aside from a few of the early ones. The 6's are def my favorites since I had a pair of original infrareds back in 6th grade. Unfortunately I scooped 2 pairs of the retro 6's in varsity red before they released the infrared combo.

I was big on AF1's for a while. The white/white lows will never go out of style. I dig me some Air Max 90's too.

was getting most of my stuff at

do the more expensive sneakers make a significant difference in your sneaking skills versus the cheaper ones? Like how many steps closer can you get to someone before they notice, if you are wearing a $200 pair versus a $100 pair?

wouldn't really class myself as a sneakerhead but i have started to build a collection this year

looking forward to black friday so i can (hopefully) get myself my first pair of air jordans

11-11-2012 , 07:52 PM
^Haha yeah, frankly I'm in the same boat as you are, starting my collection this year as well. I'm sure calling myself a sneakerhead would be an insult to actual sneakerheads, but no one made the thread yet so I took it upon myself to do so

Bred 4s are nice. I wanted to get a pair, but I already got a pair of Cav 4s earlier this year so I'm going to get the Bred 11s instead. I already have a pair of Concords, but the colorway is much different, as opposed to comparing the Bred and Cav 4s.

These just came in about 20 mins ago

Funny-ish story. I'm always late for my 12:30 MW class, and last Monday I woke up early for the sole purpose of not being late again. So it's 11:00 and I'm on fb, and this one fb page I liked that shows sales and promotions for various brands showed that Nike had some promotion going on. I just HAD to jump on that, so I did at the cost of being late for class again lol. The shoe retails for $105, got it for $83 + tax, shipping was free. I wanted to get the Zoom Rookie Blacks but they were sold out.

This page isn't exclusively for sales on shoes, but here it is:

I wanna get into Uptowns but it seems like they only go with fitted jeans, and mine are more on the loose/baggier side. I was interested in the AF1 Foamposite Pewters but no one else seems to like em lol.

They shoulda went with a gum sole instead of white/gum on those AF1's....imo

cool, a sneaker thread with embarassing, ugly sport shoes.

but this response set me off:
Running shorts and random tee.

Those are sport shoes.
he's right.
11-13-2012 , 08:36 AM

Basketball shorts, basketball jersey, maybe a sweatband on your wrist or forehead.

now i can GTFO.

For those that live in Los Angeles:

The House of Hoops in the Beverly Hills Center is raffling off the Rookie Galaxys today, and the drawing will be tomorrow.

Copped my jordan viii aquas like 5 years ago and people love them.

also got infared (maybe max orange) jordan 1's that are dope.

also got these huf low sneakers for cheap. like 30$ that are dope.

honestly though all these new jordans are whack. they are just flooding the market with inferior quality products. maybe im just growing up.

i take notice for other brands more now
these are dope

so are these

Literally worst sneakers ever

The Bordeaux 1's and supreme AF1's are beautiful though
11-15-2012 , 09:32 PM
I didn't like em either until I saw the 2nd picture I posted itt on them. If I win the shoes im ganna try to trade em for paranorman foamposites.

why do you guys let them do that to you?
i don't understand.

I've just recently started to read 2p2 again and found this thread. I have been buying a ton of sneakers lately and mostly just like the originality and simplicity of the Nike SB Dunks. All the ones I buy are highs or mids and for some reason I don't really get into the lows.

With regard to basketball shoes, I am not really a fan of the galaxies or foamposites for some reason. I do obviously like 5 or 6 of the early Jordan releases but never have the time to wait in line nor the money to pay 300+ a pair on flightclub.

The sites I frequent that I haven't seen yet itt are and Complex adds 15-20 sneaker posts everyday that are usually pretty on point and Premier is just a skate apparel shop really. They frequently have good deals on dunks if those are your thing.

I will post some of my newest buys when I have more time.
