UA should look at the up and coming talent in high schools and colleges, sponsor national b-ball events to bring more attention to their b-ball side of product. It never hurts to ask a big name player... look at D. Wade signing with LI-Ning, who's ever heard of that brand until Wade signed plus his JB wasn't the greatest selling shoe either. UA has a lot to offer someone that signs with them because some of the people that used to be at Nike have moved on to UA.

Signing with UA would have benefitted them more Durant himself, because they are still looking for a market among the Nike consumers which is and will continue to be an uphill battle until they get a big name that has a good selling signature shoe already. Signing back with Nike is a given look at the history of players that left for another brand, their shoes ended up on the shelf in grocery stores.

How do you have the theme of DMV and not one artist from the area first off, secondly the execution was horrid, third the five hours is more than enough time to properly do one pair of shoes with or without an airbrush.

Has anyone else noticed that this so called rapper seems like the only reason he made what some say is music was to become one of the biggest hypemonsters? He has more beasting videos than his own music videos. When will the madness stop with posers and wannabe's that do things just to move up in a line-up or a camp-out?

NO! Not original in any way shape or form. This shit has gotten very boring and repetitive. Out of all the colors in the entire world the same ones get used on the same shoes over and over and over and over and over again. Angelous makes over 300 colors by now, take some time to look at them and use them instead of following what has been done since this "thing" started...

@Cop em and Rock em  

In the "real" good ol' days of buying sneakers before sneaker head was even a term us OG's didn't have to worry about lines or raffles or none of this bullshit join on today. All we had to do was go to the store and buy what we wanted on delivery day, and once the store manager knew who you were they would let you know what was dropping and when it was coming in and all you had to do was show up. Now fast forward to today and you have to go to a giant babysitting convention to buy shoes is a no go plus the fact that the majority of the kicks are new retros with 3-6 times the retail price that some brat stood in line for a week to buy with their mother's credit card who will certainly have no intentions of paying her back after making 3-6 times what they paid. Don't forget young man this didn't just start yesterday. And for you to call yourself Cop em Rock em, you want to change that to Cop em and Resell em...

@kshaun12 @Founding Father  Gotta disagree with you on that. I'm pretty sure a very large majority of the shoes there may look like some OG's but they are nothing but retro's.

Not one shoe looking aged, and what you consider old skool might be different from my old school…

Wouldn't be caught in a casket at this shit. Prices are still ebay high and if you do have a trade worth trading no seller wants to take on more stock that thye have to pack back and take back to store in the 6x6 bedroom. From the looks most of the shoes in the pics are some rather current releases.

Nike is just waiting for the right amount of demand for something like this. The internets are not buzzing enough with a demand for an SB retro onslaught yet. You better believe it is something that Nike is going to do, all the way back to the Thanksgiving Dunks, but then, with the way they do business they will go overboard and make packs that use the OG color-ways and force feed and flood the market like they do with JB, and then the fun is gone. If they keep it simple and bring back what the people really want then the "new" SB Dunks might have a new life breathed into it as well...

@JayKroon @Ralphjones380 According to his recent radio rants, he controls everything pop culture. Just because adidas gave him a deal does not mean anything. If he goes into the situation with the attitude he been displaying it will be short lived just like Nike. He has had numerous labels and why are they not around anymore?

No exclusive shoe will come out of JB for Aubrey, even players have to wear normal J's before they get a branded shoe. It's highly doubtable that Aubrey will be designing a whole new shoe at most he will just say is "OOOOHHHHH yea I like that and YYYYEEEEAAAAHHHH i like that. Just a full blown Jordan ID experience, and judging by Aubrey's sense of style… hold on and get ready for a tacky ride...

I did not say he would be on his line, what I am saying is that will they box him in and his line just ends up being another line like the JS line. Learn how to read and understand what you read or aks for clarification before you get smartassed behind your keyboard youngster.

Okay… signing with Adidas isn't that bad is it? Mr. West is not an athlete, but you allow him to make you a lot of money and all he gets is the accolades of designing a shoe. At the same time Jordan or many of their contracted athletes never held a pencil, they would just say yes or no to a design idea or give some ideas on how they wanted it to look which still has to be translated through designers. Will Adidas force him to stay within the boundaries of the JS line or will he have free reign to do what he wants, that is what will make this venture a failure or success. Outside of that how many of the consumers will jump ship from Nike to Adidas just to pay for Mr. West's family...

From the pics posted the majority and that is a very large majority of the shoes for sale were the most recent drops. Total spoiled brat hypebeast movement. The pics say it all kids are selling shoes that aren't even their size which makes it a bitch for a person that wanted that shoe in the store to buy because of some 12 year old reseller. I know it's not much that can be done to the current status of sneakers and all of it's down spiraling trends, so for the human beings that actually like to wear their shoes and buy shoes because they like them and not because of hype or resell purposes let's start a new secret society in which things are done without the use of the internet...

I can say this... more than 60-75% of the people there are not from DC. Sneakercon is a beast's traveling circus, whatever they have that can't be dumped on ebay they jump on the Conwagon to keep their beast modes going. Like nwyrkg said competing with a kid that has nothing else to do with their life all day but use mommy and daddy's credit card to buy anything they want, or they have parents that keep them quiet by giving them anything they want, you will never have a chance to just go out and pick up a shoe ever again. Unless you stand in line over night like a nerd, and I'm sure some of us are too grown to do such and have jobs to go to in the morning. It's time to start using brain games, start buying the shoes with no hype, no website mentions, no early release pics, no signatures, no nothing. See what happens then...

What the hell is wax cloth anyway...? Well I think Chef will have to change his technique up if he wants to make any cash because the way the whole exotic skin thing has taken over, he might wanna' think about sewing. Plus he takes what Nike has done already and does it over times 10 like a super-hyper-strike-gs-limited-asia only-tier zero release.

And I don't see his shoes in a lot of places like some of the other custom guys out there...
