Congrats, KD. Nike would have looked silly letting him walk away (especially with the popularity of the line right now).

@Biga173rd I'm thinking Lab series pricing at least (and hopefully that's with better leather and not just the switch out on the heel tab). All of this "remastering" is going to make me be a lot more selective with my JB purchases.

@ekin420 I don't think anyone is buying that these are handmade, and they aren't using the same molds (the shape of shoes like the IV has obviously changed over the years). JB is going to charge what they think they can get away with, and consumers have shown this year that they are willing to drop at least $200 for sigs. For the record, I'm a little skeptical and waiting to see how "remastered" these shoes really are.

The reality: JB has watched us spend $200-$295 on LeBrons and Kobes. They're not hurting for it, but they want that kind of cut on a regular basis. The "remastering" is some serious hype, but it's also their way of justifying the price hike. There's no way we'd spend $200 plus for the quality that we've been getting on GRs. If the improvements are real, JB is making a case for the right to ask us to spend more $.

If production is going on hiatus to remaster the III and bring back the black cements with a Nike Air heel tab, I can wait. That would be worth it.

At first glance, I thought this looked more like a conversion for turf than an XI prototype. The old school quality of the leather might support the owner's story though.

Looking forward to the Hares (and hopefully Flints) next year. That gum sole is a perfect match for wine and gold.  2015 looks promising.

Nothing wrong with that leather at all. Would have been nice to see a smoked out  outsole like the Motorsports (seems like a better compliment to that white midsole and the design on the liner).

The hyperposites are nice. Materials and colorway on Wall's shoes are 100 percent better than that patchwork version we first saw. Nice change up on the color blocking for the KD. Can't do red flywire or those laces on NIKEiD (at least not today anyway), so this looks like a PE.

@qtbigwatts You're right. OG infrared was so bright it was damn near neon. This is just a case of what happens with retros:  It's not going to be the same as the OG. That's probably why they've started referring to the color on this year's retros as Infrared 23.

At just 2,000 units, $500 is what a reseller would charge for the VI alone (just to compare, there were only several hundred pairs of Eminem IIs and they can go for $2K). JB is playing an interesting game here. For those that really want these, I hope you catch them at retail. At least you'll get the CP3s for your trouble.
