these are a prime example of a HypeBeast special. if these weren't a special callabo, they'd have to be GS sizes - or they'd SIT.... UNLESSSS they were a Doernbecher release, in which case they'd crash servers and be on eBay for $500 10 min. later.

@NewbombedTurk the release button is that small black dot on the achilles. it's a tiny bit recessed.

i owned the OGs in '91 (yeah, i'm old). these look functional. the small hole next to the pump 'bulge' near the ankle bone is actually the air intake. the small black button on the achilles is the release valve.
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite the sole IS clear (or icy light blue)... take a look at the sole where it covers the carbon shank. it looks like either the foam or the midsole is dark-colored - and it's showing thru the outsole. but i agree with you - should have had the completely icy look heel to toe.

@csbenji and by a "better as a sneaker", I mean you could probably actually ball in a Yeezy - as even some NBA players have done... but Balenciagas etc. are really just fashion pieces that LOOK like sneakers for the most part.

@csbenji i don't think he's dissing them - especially since you can find a ton of pics of him actually wearing those same designers. I think he's trying to say that he wanted to take those same premium materials and put them on a shoe that's better as an actual SNEAKER... and do so at a lower price point.

@Neezy - I can see a little bit of the 4s when I look at the blue/teal CW (which I'm not mad at really)... but the military ones have so much going on that you can't even really see the silho of the damn shoe.
i'm not crazy about shoes that scream "Hey look at all this tech I got goin' on!!" I like things a little more understated... but that's just me.
what would happen if if you made a shoe out of Optimus Prime's helmet? now you know.

@ThePrufessa - I've done black jeans (triple black unwashed Levis) with my Black / Elec Green ones... and I rock them like untied combat boots - jeans kinda tucked behind the tongue of the inner bootie. The only noticeable dye transfer I have is on those top 2 lace-lock eyelets. You could always break out the can of Scotch-Guard and try to protect them that way LOL

@Snpdo I think you're right. fcuk Li Ning... fcuk the D-Wade brand... fcuk the shoe sales... I think he just took that loot and ran LOL

@TheBlackGatsby Also, keep in mind that it's not as simple as just "bring the shoe to the US". Remember - we're talking about a brand that NObody in the US has really ever heard of. To do it right, they have to create awareness thru marketing (which costs big $) - and be able to present their company as a real brand! ON TOP OF THAT - as talented as D-Wade is, IMO, he was never comfy being the franchise; and he's also on a team with LeBron frickin James(!!) - and honestly, shoe sales are part product design, part player, and part marketing. Even pre-LeBron in Miami, when Jordan Brand was running the Agent D3 campaign (which was a great campaign BTW), they still couldn't pull it off completely. I just don't think dude is "THAT Dude". *shrugs*
@Sneaker Movement You're right. Nike is "just a shoe company"; but they are also arguably the most iconic BRAND on the planet. Nike has revolutionized sport culture and shaped pop culture in the same way that Apple has influenced how the world views music players and phones. If you're going to bring on different, it needs to be at least PERCEIVED as being better - and not just a weak imitation. Li Ning totally jacked Nike's steez - and they didn't do anything any BETTER! Sure, they have a built-in home field advantage in China - and there are a lot of feet to put shoes on over there, but that's where their advantage ends... abruptly!
Nike owns basketball. Period. Not saying it'll always be that way, but... OK, yes I am. I'm saying it. Nike owns basketball and always will. Not only do they produce an overall product that is generally superior to other footwear makers - but over the the last 25 years or so, their innovation and MARKETING(!!!!) has done far too much to influence and shape the game and our culture as we know it. Nike has defined what basketball shoe design IS! So, the best other shoe companies can do is try to copy and hope consumers bite. Good Luck with that.
@ThePrufessa PREACH. i'm at 3 pairs right now - and I'm SAD to think of what might come next year. I've said it about 8 times in different posts about this shoe, but it's the most comfortable sneaker I've ever worn... it's like a perfect 2nd skin - and the ride is what you wish your feet felt like barefoot. I've been wearing 1 pair or another almost exclusively since the day they dropped and I still find myself bobbing up and down on the forefoot Zoom for no damn reason - just because it feels awesome LOL. My avatar is NOT lying.

@r_genis you can DEF get fly in any of solid black CWs... they're almost like sporty dress boots... but yeah... good luck with some of the CWs that look like Hawaiian shirts LOL
...and unless they release huge numbers of some of the more "questionable" CWs, i doubt you'll be seeing many boxes of ANY XX8s at your local outlet mall. Tinker got this one right.
@jrillera is 100% correct. this is the most comfortable HOOP shoe i have EVER put on, right out of the box... and for everyone upset at the price - like it or not, a quality product of ANY sort costs $$... doesn't matter if it's shoes... electronics... cars. i know our economy STINKS right now, so if you can't afford to drop two-fiddy + Uncle Sam's cut, at LEAST go try a pair on... and i PROMISE your hating will quiet down LOL.
i just made a comment yesterday about a Black/Infra CW being OUTTA HERE!! ...And lo and behold....
@jrillera PREACH!!!!!!! these fools have NO clue.

@whotheowl i own a pair. the collar around the top doesn't stretch - but i assume that it is sized in accordance with the shoe size. that said: i have fairly large calves to begin with - and zipped up they're snug, if not a bit tight... but if you've got smaller ankles, if you're wearing a tall crew sock, you shouldn't have the problem you're describing. if you wear short socks, the shroud has enough structure not to feel "loose" even if your ankle doesn't completely fill the collar - which i think it will anyway. go try a pair on... NEXT LEVEL SH*T. not even kidding.
