@sole_serious I'll have to agree and while the last sentence can be taken two ways if you're saying the christmas pack wasn't all that and you'd still cop those before these then I'm taking seconds on that.

@donadamsky I've done the rastaness before but there's something about these makes a really small percent of me say "I don't know" and it of course has to do with the CW.

@VNTG_BMW Hmmm…I don't know. Didn't "almost" everything they collab in 2013 either restock or was then made available at additional stockists?
@ILIKESHOES Care to share? Were you jacked every time you bought one of those?

"There’s no doubt that the BWGH x Puma R698 was one of the more slept on releases in 2013. " - @sneakernews - The shoe had an extremely limited "ONLINE" release. How can people sleep on something that's harder to get than even a Kith?
Regardless these don't feel as exciting as the ones they released last year. Easy pass for all of them.

@GeorgeOguapo @NikeLovesYouALL @IamCrak Same thing I said yesterday about the Kobe NSW.
Same with the Kobe NSW. Looks like Nike is taking design cues from Supra. Just terrible.
So many people will cop these just because Kobe and Nike are associated with it and never give Supra a second glance. No I don't own any Supra's or have stock in the company but I'd definitely cop a pair before I considered these.

@iamSANhedrin @anythingisable Where might someone even have a chance of spotting the Puma R698 BWGH? Easily the most disappointing release of 2013 in terms of availability for me personally. Seems like they only made 500 or something(don't start spreading rumors…that's my opinion)
For almost 1.5mths now they've had that stupid "notify me when available" newsletter signup on their site.

@midwestnocoast@_phantomVISIONActually I probably would have picked up some Disc's a long time ago if they did in fact have lights on them. Says the 39yr old dude that often acts like a 5yr old :P
@DA_KIDD_SEEJAYAre you saying the rumor is from such a reputable source that you'll hold off as in it's almost a definite? Source of rumor?
@Lurker111Agreed. While pushing the boundaries of how many patterns or materials work on a single shoe has been a huge trend of the last 5 years or more it simply doesn't work here. The regular flyknit pattern alone is already pushing it. This shoe just goes overboard.
Would it have been too much to have started off with a design that at least more closely complimented the Laker's home or away uniforms? It's like they(the designers) get a kick these days out of just introducing a random color(the volt). This kind of methodology usually can be pulled off easy and gotten away with on a runner but some basketball shoes at times just feel like too much creative liberties were taken.
@JohnZookI got a chuckle out of your comment since these are supposed to be "masterpieces" and well that's what Picasso created. I agree with your assertion though. Some amazing colorway is going to have to come along to move these then again a lot of people really do like ugly.
@sneakaninjazPublic discourse is now crying too much? Not sure I agree with that. Corporate greed isn't something you can just shrug off nor should people's issues be silenced. That's called a facist dictatorship and last I checked America is still a free republic, at least so we're told.
A comment box and access to the website means anything can be posted here. If we don't like it or can't create an intellectual argument to defend our positions then it is us who should shut up. Furthermore if all the people you cited in your "to market" breakdown were getting paid a fair living wage I'd hit that like button and tell you good point but you sound educated enough to comprehend that a top down trickle effect of wealth is not happening. Just ask a worker in a factory that makes these shoes how much they're paid a month to make hundreds if not thousands of shoes.
When you consider that 1% owns 46% of the WORLD'S wealth and resources in a world of 7+ billion people you cannot tell me or create any argument I cannot shoot down to justify people having an issue with the price. Nike like every other "publicly traded" company is driven by shareholder and investor greed.
LOL..BMW? Is this the same BMW lobbying to change pollution policy so their emissions can further create a more sustainable planet for future generations? Please.
@TheNaturalActually you're kinda right but did a piss poor job of explaining yourself. If you mean in US stores then yes you are quite delusional and off your seat. If you mean in UK stores these will sit for months just like most, not all but many other Jordan's have.
Up until a few weeks ago there were several sites. Hannon, END. Clothing, Size? and SNS that still had 3's, Fire Reds, Grapes etc etc. Some of these sites STILL have stocks of these shoes in many sizes.
I just checked several of my favorite overseas sites and I can order the taxi's right now in any size. That will most likely be the case in two weeks. Try passing on these this weekend in the US and let me know if you're able to pick them up 2 weekends from now.
1 year ago on Air Jordan 12 “Taxi” – Release Reminder
@Just_A_PersonThat's a very interesting bet. These look horrible to me and I'd be surprised if they sold out but if they do good for Kobe, Nike and you if you copped a pair. They just ain't my cup of tea.
@BVSEDJESUS@dejjo11Don't assume everyone is stupid enough to believe it isn't. Are you suggesting that a pair of these cost more than $30 USD to make if even that?
While your answering that also explain how and why FlyKnit isn't cheap. Please explain it's indestructible space age properties to me.
For anyone interested these are available via FootLocker here in the US for $119.99 w/Free Shipping. I would read the comments closely. They seem to run small and I don't know what returning a shoe to FL would be like since they can be such dicks in store.

@kicks67 It looks like it's finally waterproof and utilizes wool etc and probably has a tongue stitched to the sidewall but not much improvement? Maybe we're thinking of a different shoe or I missed the update of 2012-2011 and I'm not up to date. After having a craptastic experience with the older versions of this boot back in the winter of 2010 I stopped following what they were doing with it.

Champs has a banner ad running on KOF right now which would seem like a REALLY smart media buy since there is an article here as well right? Wrong. If you're in digital advertising/marketing please pay attention to this EPIC FAIL! The banner, when collapsed fails to tell the viewer whether these are limited to in store only(to drive in store POP) or whether they'll be released online at X date.
So what's the point of the banner? Oh that's right to confuse viewers and have them call their local Champs and have Champs waste resources by handling phone calls when they could be cleaning the store or god forbid helping customers. When I see these companies doing poorly in the market you honestly want me to feel bad? Absolutely unbelievable. I've got to send this link to the marketing team in our office so everyone can have a good laugh.

@Shoetheworld and to be honest I'm also a little confused as to why some legit sites show the Jumpman in both directions so it would appear that a decision was made at some point to reverse it? Logically it would make more sense for the Jumpman to be facing forward than backwards.

@Shoetheworld Sole Collector, FlightClubNY, SneakerNews, NiceKicks, Soleredemption etc ALL have a pair of Jordan 9's in every imaginable color way with the Jumpman facing the front or towards the toe. But but not the blue and white you say?
Please refer to the article from March 3, 2010 | By Furqan Khan. What color are those and which direction is the Jumpman facing? Thanks.
