Yeah real comfy too. Hyperfuse pair looked nice as well.

Nice pick up of the KD V. Picked up the Christmas pair and missed out on BHMs this past weekend same with the Oregon turfs. All thanks to oversleeping.

Used to be a huge sneaker head but had to stop. I basically had a closet full of sneakers, close to 30 pairs of Jordan's alone.

I bought a pair of Adidas the other month similar to the ones posted, Busenitz in brown, my first pair of Adidas in years, pretty cool sneaker.

Has anybody used the retr0bright cleaning method before? I wanna try it on my Zoom Lebron III's. Most tutorial videos have displayed their results on soles. I, however would like to try it on yellowed plastic.

Pics are here:

I haven't bought a pair of the 8s yet, but I've seen plenty of people/reviews say its one of the best basketball shoes ever made for guards. Can't wait to get a pair for sure.

This thread is the most vital thread right now.

So I fucking love sneakers. I have a few pairs - something like 25 right now. I used to have a lot more, but some of them I let my brother hold, and others I threw out a few years ago. Let me start with the following:

FUCK RESELLERS.

Let me also state that the only legit sneakerheads are those that actually wear their kicks. If you buy them just to stock them or to look at...wacksauce, man.

Let me finally state that there are other shoes out there than Jordans/Nikes. Other brands make great sneakers too...especially retro releases.

Now, the questions:

- favorite shoes/player lines? Right now, the Lebron line (my faves are 2, 8 low, 9, 10) is my favorite. I also like the KD (only the IVs right now), and Penny (pretty much all of his shoes - Foamposites, 1, 5, Zoom Rookies). Retro Jordans are cool too, but I only ever liked certain colorways of the 1, 3, 4, 5, 11 and 12. Everything else is irrelevant to me.

- thoughts on the current direction of the shoe game? The shoe game is fucked up because of resellers, hypebeasts (who themselves are often resellers), and companies (mostly Nike, who basically can sell whatever they want at any price because no one exists to challenge them). Sneakers used to be about cool players and cool colorways and none of that ultra-limited, quickstrike, waiting in lines, paying more than retail shit. I wish it went back to that.

- price rises vs declining material quality? That's the way everything is now...but Nike is amazing at it. Look at retro releases of theirs - nerfed leather, shit paint, removed details, etc. Now look at retro Reeboks - premium leather, identical detailing, great paint, and OG prices. Nike could do that...but there's no reason to do it, because people will sit outside Foot Locker for days just for the chance to buy retro Jordans without Nike AIR on them for $50+ more than they were when they were released.


...ehh, I sound like an old man ranting here. But I just love sneakers, y'all. What's everyone's latest pickup? Me, I just got some Air Flight 89s and the New Year's Eve black and gold Iversons (Reebok Question). My next pickup is the royal blue OG Jordan 1s.
