foamposites are the most overrated kicks. I used to want the purple ones when they retroed like 2 years ago but the foam craze is ridic and now everyone has em. I don't like having kicks that tons of people have, thats why ive lost interest in jordans. nowadays i can bring out my aqua viii's and i won't see another pair when im on campus at my college or my infared 1's. thats a nice feeling imo

i really like grey sneakers

I'm just gonna post some pics of some dope kicks that I would love to have.

what was your top 5 favourite jordans(or any sneakers in general) that you owend?
Man, that's a tough question. I was gonna respond to this with pics, but it was taking forever.
1. My favorite J's are definitely the black/red XIV "last shots." The first time I saw those shoes I almost cried, and I just HAD to have them, but I was way too poor. By the time they were retroed I had a ****load of money so I bought like six pairs, I still have three left deadstocked in the closet somewhere. I still wear them today to play basketball in.

2. Also, I will always have a soft spot for the ones I played high school basketball in, the black XVII lows and mids (no shroud, obv). I just beat those to death, and I really loved how low to the ground they felt and how sleek and responsive they were. They got mixed reviews at the time, but I still think the college blue mids are one of the most creative and beautiful J's of all time. It also is a significant shoe because it sort of marks the end of an era for me... I never liked any of the J's after the XVII and those are the newest ones that I currently own.

3. I think the all gold Vapor 3's (soccer shoe) deserve mention too. I've never played soccer, but I bought those just because of how beautiful I thought they looked, so sleek and smooth with those great lines, and light as a feather. I kept them just to appreciate them for like six years before I said **** it and started wearing them for flag football in college. Not as good for FB as FB shoes, but they were so awesome I didn't care. I wore them until the soles fell off, then glued em back and wore 'em down again.

4. I have a thing for all gold shoes - I loved the lucky dunk 13's and the all gold super rare (but somehow not super expensive) all gold air max 360's that were a euro quickstrike. I wore the latter to every Cal gameday in college and they're beaten to shreds now.

5. I really like some of the crazier colorways of the 180's, I think that shoe has a great aesthetic that is pretty unassuming in humble colorways, but is in your face amazing in flashier colorways. There was a neon pink and yellow tier 0 colorway that was just so in your face I was all about those. I owned 2 pairs of the viotech dunks as well, old heads will remember those - they were like the original "ugly cool" before nike ruined it. If anybody remembers the tier 0 powerwall, that was the turning point for me, when I moved from J's to AM's.

I also think when methamphibian from niketalk started doing custom paint jobs on shoes in like 2000-2001, some of that **** blew my mind. He's an amazing artist, I never owned any of his creations but I sure wanted them back then. Damn, I can't believe that was like 12 years ago.

The cool grey and concord XI's I think are pretty sweet, but by the time I could finally afford them they had been retroed and flooded the market and I didn't want em anymore, and I had moved from more of a bulky basketball aesthetic to a running shoe look.

My Calvin Bailey 9's came in from Eastbay yesterday. I was planning on wearing them for basketball but I don't know if I have the heart to do it. They are just too fresh! I will prolly not end up wearing them at all haha.

^^Those royal blue suede air maxes a couple posts up are dope as hell. I have a terrible weakness for suede and would say the last 12 shoes I have bought feature a roughly all suede upper

I'm probably in the general group of people you hate, especially since I got into sneakers around the middle of last year. But even though I've only been into Jordans for half a year, I already know what you mean. I used to love 4's, but I've seen tons of people wear em, even before the Breds came out.

I've only seen 1 person wear Pine Green Foams though, and that was while I was getting a ticket for a Galaxy raffle. So idk, they might be overrated, but there doesn't seem to be a lot of people that are wearing em so I'm happy. Or I will be once my Stealths come in...Osneaker is lagging big time.

The sneakers you posted were pretty sick. I'm surprised you didn't post a pic of Pennys as well though, unless you're just done with Nike altogether.

I'm starting to get into 8's (sorry if that's bad news for you) and 12's. Desperately looking for Flu 12's at a good price...I would snap trade em for my Bred 4's (although that would probably be a steal for me, I'm pretty sure DS Flu 12's are worth around $300). I'm getting my Bugs Bunny 8's restored right now. I bought em used, and there's a place called the Shoe Lab that does great shoe restoration. It's expensive but it's worth it.
01-07-2013 , 08:32 PM
TensRUs, na man I dont really hate anyone lol. Yea the 8's are awesome, I'll have to peep shoe lab.

One thing also about the jordans, is I guess they just ran out of ideas. The past couple of years they just been retroing everything which isn't necessarily a bad thing but the quality is worse and prices higher and the lines even longer. Then there were the times where Jordan started making spizikes (which thought were ugly and too bulky) and then making other jordans where they were combining models. just thought that was silly.


My jordan wish list though
Jordan 11 Cool Greys
Raptor 7s
infared 6's
cool grey IX's

Honestly I love jordans vi-xiii. all are so good
01-07-2013 , 08:57 PM
lol yeah it's so embarassing, when I was JUST getting into sneakers, I told my friend that's been a sneakerhead for 10 years that I liked Son of Mars and AJ 8.0's. Idk how he didn't slap me right there and then. I guess I still think they're ok, but as you mentioned, shoving models together is dumb, and I didn't realize they were going that until I learned more about the AJ line.

Since you've obviously been into Jordans much longer than I have...how pumped are you for the True Blues that are coming out this year with the Nike Air logo on the back instead of the Jumpman? I'm not sure what the big deal is, but obv I'm new to this so my opinion doesn't mean jacks***. I'm guessing it's a nostalgia thing.

Gah. Someone buy these on my behalf

Did anyone else see they're planning to release the "black Tongue" fire red V's, NOT THE SAME AS 1/26/13 release? Is this an error on Kicksonfire.com?

Yah they are releasing them in the fall of this year. I am definitely waiting for those as we have discussed 1/23 drop and looks awful. In the meantime I just copped a pair of these in my size 12 somehow for retail, feel really lucky and they will definitely remain deadstock as there is no way I am wearing a pair of nike dunks that cost $250.


Concepts x Nike "When Pigs Fly" Dunk Hi--released Black Friday

Those are so nice. I saw em on kicksdeals...I assume you did too lol.

To say the very least, those>>>>>>>Polarized Pinks

For those that don't feel like googling it:

01-12-2013 , 06:31 AM
sorry but guys look ridiculous wearing them and the pink foams
01-12-2013 , 06:55 AM
Tbh I haven't seen anyone ever wear em so I wouldn't know. Idk how I would ever wear pink either but I like the shoe itself. That's just me though
01-12-2013 , 08:54 AM
i really do like the shoe, the blue, grey and pink is a pretty sick colorway + the gum sole is a really nice touch, but i just think guys looks silly wearing them cause them look so femanie so should be left for the ladys

also take away the "Concepts x Nike "When Pigs Fly" Dunk Hi" and just make these a GR and almost no guys would wear them

Oh definitely don't get me wrong, I wouldn't be caught dead wearing those...I bought purely from a value standpoint. They are so rare and the concepts x nike collabos end up selling for a lot of money so I thought I'd pick them up just to hold onto.

I tried to buy them on concepts right when they released and they were all gone w/in literally one second of going on sale. I couldn't believe it when I saw they were being restocked on kicksdeals and had to grab them in my size.

BTW, did anyone end up picking up the bred 13's? I thought about going out today to grab a pair but I have too many red shoes. I like them but just think they would go to waste and I wouldn't wear them enough, plust they seem like a shoe that I would only wear for basketball and not w/jeans etc...
