I don't know if you can say that adidas low-balled Lebron... They were still planning on giving him a $100 mil over the life of the contract, it's just the incentives and other milestones that had to be passed in order for the total sum to be paid out. adidas played it safe, and it backfired. Sonny had way more trust from adidas than he says he does, mostly because adidas thought they'd be able to put this incentive-laden contract in front of Lebron and still think he would sign it.
btw, that first lebron sig looks a lot like a model that falls in line with the Tim Duncan line....

just don't understand why adidas gets ignored some times. they do some excellent stuff with materials, colors, patterns and textures. love what they did with this runner, and the price point will probably be excellent, as usual. keep sleeping on adidas, people....

anyone look at this and think "Anta made John Wall a signature shoe?" let's hope it's got boost foam in it at least...
11 months, 2 weeks ago on Another Look at the Upcoming adidas John Wall Signature Shoe
@effyourshoegame point taken. but is that driving sales number for nike, or is it increasing visibility for supreme and bringing more traffic to their skate shop?

@PBStheFauxTog @YellowingSucks I think the disconnect here is that you're talking about a more specific subset of people and society. I'm pretty sure people who are into skating aren't influenced by the latest Foamposite releases. Neither are the people who love running marathons influenced by what Jordan retro is dropping this Saturday. You have to think about everyone, not just everyone you know, or everyone you talk to on blogs, literally. the whole world. The Nike Free is a very popular line of shoes. Just in production numbers and sales numbers in general, i'm sure those shoes are making Nike more money, simply because they're making and selling more. I don't know any of the numbers, but it's really hard to believe that the total number of retros sold in a month is even a significant percent share of the total number of units sold by Nike. And by significant, I mean like, north of 50%.
12 months ago on Matt Powell Predicts the Success of Kanye West x adidas for Forbes
@YellowingSucks the problem is, that small subset thinks they are driving SALES, when, in reality, they're just driving hype and culture. it's no disrespect to boutiques and blogs, but the actual sneakerhead culture makes such a little dent on the overall number of units being moved.
these and the kobe IX's look so sick with the mango accents.....

As great as social media is, it allows a lot of people who are very uneducated about the whole sneaker culture to comment on things and formulate opinions based on an extremely small minority of people within this community. people, keep your comments to yourselves and stop having the need to post about every issue and shocking article that comes up (as I hypocritically post on this blog post....)

@Senda951 i don't believe in the "death" of a shoe. you can still love a shoe that get's excessively overdone. don't let the constant production of new colorways of your favorite shoe deter you from liking it anymore!

the fact that articles like this have to come out show how little restraint people show on social media. it's amazing what people will say when hiding behind their touchscreens and keyboards. the moral of the story here is don't say anything if you have nothing good to say. then things like "outrage over puddle pictures" will stop being a topic of discussion. and leave the man Perfect Pair alone, sheesh. he's done nothing wrong personally to any of you....

@kicksonfire @OGJordansOnly lebron is an incredible player. we can't compare him to jordan because they play different positions. to put it out there, lebron shoots the three ball at a better percentage, can defend all five positions, and is starting to get to the point of his career where he'll lean on his jumpshot more than his athleticism. the dudes a freak, and he needs the most advanced shoes to get him there. a toast to the new greatest ever.

really depends on what type of shoe you like. if you can wait, i'd wait till nightwing2303 does a performance review on both of the shoes. just search his username on YouTube. he's pretty insightful and gives you a good sense of how the shoes perform.
