It wasn't that they weren't allowing American releases, they couldn't. Before Wade signed the company had recorded record losses. Literally lost millions more than what they made. They don't have the factories or man-power to supply the demand. I agree the $250 is a little ridiculous but we both know cats will bend over and drop their boxers willingly just to have these.

Can't front though, I seen them in person and had them in my hands and the quality is ridiculous. Nike and Jordan brand haven't put out a shoe in a long time with the quality that these have. Still, not $250 worth.

The company isn't new. It's been around in China for a while now. The company was doing pretty bad but somehow still one of the most popular sneaker brands in China. The acquisition of Dwyane Wade was seen as a move to catapult the company into the plus side of their earnings but it hasn't been the case. They don't have the facilities to manufactur the demand at this time and the company wants to take care and supply the demand in China first before coming to the states. The Chinese are a very loyal people and like to take care of their own. Not a smart business model but it is what it is. This is very possibly just a way for them to test the waters here in the states and depending on how this goes (which should obviously be very well) it could open up the doors to finally set releases to more shops and retailers across the states. I agree though that they're way expensive. I'm reconsidering now.

Been loving this cw since I first saw it. Looks tougher on feet and especially with that 'fit. Gotta snag me that tee.

I'm not one to rock jerseys at all outside of my team but I might just have to get the throwback Kemp jersey for these.

Damn this colorway combined with the design is tough. Definitely dig these more than the Heat Away cw. Can't wait to see a "stealth" or "blackout" cw. This design is dope as long as it's given a colorway that plays well with it. The right colorway sets the shoe off while the wrong one will make it look like trash. Can't wait for the ID options.

I really dig the parachute gold but I'm still undecided about this cw. That's my hometeam too so I should be into this but I can't honestly say I'm 100% feeling these.

I really like a lot of DeJesus' customs. He usually keeps things clean and simple and executes very well but these are hideous. Sorry but the V silo has a lot going on as it is. A "what the" theme just wouldn't go well with these. I could be proven wrong but not here.

Can't wait to see the first Batman "Tumbler" custom. You know it's coming. These grew on me pretty quick. Really digging this style with this particular colorway. Can't wait to cop. Taking a break for a bit and if these drop in October they will be the next shoe purchase... well, after the KD 6 Bamboo.

I understand where you're trying to go with the conversation but there hasn't been a decrease in Swoosh placement. The X has two large swooshes on the outside heel and the inside from the toe box. I do believe that LeBron's sigs are going to eventually go in the direction of Jordan brand where we might see a "dunkman" logo on the shoes instead of the swoosh. I'm for it. However that Jumpman logo will always be much more iconic than a Dunkman logo or whatever logo they would go with.

At this point in his career, LeBron has gained more hype around his shoes (not to mention the production of alternate shoes such as the ambassador and soldier models) at this point then Mike had at his. LeBron also has so many more colorways than Mike ever had. I'm willing to argue that the LeBron X will go down as one of the most popular sigs of all time. Right up there with the Jordan 1 and XI. Can you imagine when they retro the X in like 5-10 years from now? The hype will be beyond comprehension.

I don't think the shoe would be so underrated if the price came down a bit. The price point on these are absurd. This colorway is super clean though.

Not really feeling these. Not as nice as the KD V N7's I think the "Bamboo" joints are the nicest so far. Can't wait to cop them.

Got mine at HoH this morning. Probably the only lows I plan on copping unless I can somehow get my hands on the Championship Pack.

So butt hurt... Must be a Boston, Chicago, Knicks, or Cleveland fan. Possibly an Indiana or LA fan. Spurs fans aren't butt hurt and too classy.

I live down here too and I see it being the same thing as the MVP release. Bullshit raffles. Unknwn was giving a 4 hour window to get tickets with people lined up in the heat and rain outside of Aventura and then the third day of the raffle they cut it two hours short at the last minute. HoH wasn't a hassle but who knows how many people are legitimately being picked and called after the employees hook their people up. Shoe Gallery was legit when they did their raffle on Vine. Honestly I hate the raffle system. It should be first come first serve or an RSVP system. Let's see what happens with these.

You just provided enough evidence to back up what I think you're trying to say.

@Gangsta Boi They aren't. They're just explaining why resellers are still around. Supply and demand. Simple economics.

Swung and missed on my first two tries. Finally copped them today. Such a dope ass shoe. One of the toughest SB's to date and they rep the hometown.

Is it just me or my monitor that the color of the lining, outsole, and trim around the swoosh is much more of a mint/light green than light blue? Come on, SN.

The only one single thing I would change on this shoe is the two small windows/holes in the armorposite where you can see the flyknit. To me, it disrupts the pattern just a little. Maybe I'm just being picky. Either way, I loved this CW when the images were first leaked and they look damn good on feet. The contrast of textures between the armorposite and rest of the upper (hyperfuse?) is fantastic. I love the offset swoosh, ala the ndstrukt. Can't wait for them to drop. Must cop for me, this colorway at least.

Fact is the kids will continue to pay and not only pay for retro releases but pay reseller prices as well. As long as there are people scooping the shoes up and paying reseller prices like nothing, all the shoes are going up. Not just J's either, look at the LeBrons...
