First pair of J's I ever had. White/Fire Red with the 3M tongue in 6th grade, 1990. Loved those shoes.

An undeniable classic, but that price is absolutely brutal.

Nice surprise. Kinda figured we'd see some Air Bursts coming out before these, but I'm not gonna complain. This colorway is ok, but bring back the black/white with the red tongue logo again? Then we're talking.

It certainly would have been if Nike had actually put the right midsole/outsole on it. Who does this appeal to? If you're gonna bring back a dope, but decidedly niche silo - don't alienate the nerds who are actually going to buy it by Frankensteining some "almost retro" together. Pass.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Nike Air Pegasus Racer – Hot Lime – Solar Red
These neutral colorways are dope, but I don't get the theme. Asics has been making entirely synthetic GL3's/GT2's/Saga's for YEARS. If you're into vegan kicks, it's not like you haven't had plenty of options already from Asics.
3 months ago on Asics Goes “Vegan” With These New January Releases
Neither of these are new colorways. Still have my '08 pair of white/reds going strong. What I'd really love to see is some of the OG colorways of the Flight Lite Lows come back. The white/purple lows are right at the top of my list of yet-to-be retro'd joints.
4 months, 2 weeks ago on Nike Air Flight Lite High – Spring 2015 Preview
No thanks. Seems kind of pointless. If they used this build but decked it out with more rugged, weatherproof materials, then you'd have something. But leather and mesh? Has anyone ever laced up a pair of AM1's and thought "man, these are just TOO DAMN LOW?" Don't mess with perfection unless it's to serve a purpose.
7 months, 3 weeks ago on Nike Introduces The Air Max 1 Mid
YES. Had the OG's way back and have been patiently waiting for this colorway to retro for a while now. I'm in.
9 months ago on Nike Air Trainer Huarache “Dark Emerald”
Not bad. Maybe it's because they remind me a little of the Hufquake AM1's, but i feel like a gum sole on these would turn them into a home run.
9 months, 1 week ago on Nike Air Huarache – Black – Green
Best colorway of this shoe by a mile. Looking pretty identical to the 2010's, but always worth a re-up IMO.
9 months, 3 weeks ago on Nike Air Trainer Max ’91 “Bo Jackson” – 2014 Retro
Also looks like the back strap is solid green, not translucent green. Still, this is a must cop.
10 months ago on Nike Air Huarache “Scream Green” – 2014 Sample
Dead center on my radar for this summer. Bring back the Flame Reds!
10 months, 3 weeks ago on Nike Air Max 93 OG Returning Soon
Backed 100%. I'd actually rather see the Air Max 2 Light get retro'd over the standard AM2, but I'm really not holding my breath on that one.
1 year ago on Sneaker News NINE@NINE: Underrated Air Max Models
Scream Green Huaraches, Laser Blue and Citrus 93's, and possibly Hot Lime 90's way up there in the background (tough to tell)? This is my kind of preview.
1 year, 4 months ago on Nike Sportswear Running – 2014 Preview
Agreed. It might verge on blasphemy, but I think I actually prefer these to the infrareds.
1 year, 4 months ago on Nike Air Trainer SC II – Pure Platinum – Dark Grey – Anthracite – Light Crimson
These releases are going to end up bringing a lot of dudes who have been out of the game or over J's for a minute back to the ring for one more round. Absolutely essential.
1 year, 4 months ago on Private: Air Jordan 6 “Maroon” + “Sport Blue” – 2014 Retro
The Bible. And a legitimately entertaining read. If half the dudes that post on here who were born after 1990 pick this up, there may still be some hope.
1 year, 5 months ago on “Where’d You Get Those?” by Bobbito Garcia 10th Anniversary Edition
Definitely less headache-inducing and an easier wear than those grey/gamma blue monstrosities, but still not worth the asking price.
1 year, 6 months ago on Air Jordan V “3Lab5″ – Black – Infrared 23
Absolutely 100% not wearable. From DS to dust in under 200 steps. Beautiful collection piece though. Easily one of the cleanest pairs I've ever seen.
1 year, 6 months ago on Air Jordan 6 “Maroon” OG Pair on eBay
Very dope. The 93 is one of my favorite silo's of all time, but the color blocking on the Huarache's is a little better I think. Might just have to try and gun for both.
1 year, 7 months ago on Size? x Nike Air Max 93 + Air Huarache Preview
Definite cop. I hope this means a Chlorophyll AM90 isn't far behind.
1 year, 7 months ago on Nike Air Trainer 1 “Infrared” – Available Early on eBay
While this is a nice surprise, for the love of all things good in this world Nike, RETRO THE 96!!!
1 year, 7 months ago on Nike Air Max 98 – 2014 Retro
Nice materials on these. This is an Omni Zone, Not a Twilight Zone though.
1 year, 9 months ago on Solebox x Reebok Pump Omni Zone Part 3
RADIO RAHEEM! So stoked on this drop. A friend of mine has a pair of the 2003 retro's that puts a mile wide jealousy streak through me every time he wears them. Also, one of those shoes that looks just as good (maybe better) a little beat as it does crisp IMO.
1 year, 11 months ago on Nike Air Revolution – 2013 Retro
Nice to see these back. Still baffles me why they made the elephant print so dark on both these and the '06's. Regardless, undisputed classic.
1 year, 11 months ago on Air Jordan III “Fire Red” 2013 Retro
@JulianScott @NYCNATIVE917 Agreed. I like the sentiment behind this and doing something is always better than doing nothing, but lets get real: This is a pure headline grabber. If you want to do some substantial good, eBay auction these like the Air Mags, then purchase THOUSANDS of GR Asics at wholesale (Which a guy/store like Fieg/Kith could easily do, and likely have their purchase matched by Asics), and make a far bigger impact.
2 years ago on Ronnie Fieg Donates Asics Gel Lyte III “Super Green” to Kids in Haiti
My 2010's are still in good shape, but these are always worth a re-up.
2 years, 5 months ago on Nike Air Max 95 “Neon” – 2013 Retro
@Lilmr81 You make it sound like JB JUST started making money? They were using the black & grey box for years and still managed to bring out the retro box for both the 3's and 4's 23rd anniversary. I'm not putting it past JB to cheapskate out on those next year, but the manufacturing cost of the boxes is practically nothing, and the pre-releases (aka shady b-grades) that were popping up for the 3's & 4's all came with the standard black & grey.
2 years, 6 months ago on Air Jordan V – White – Fire Red – Black
While I'm glad Nike toned the VNTG midsole thing down on these; if they're going to do a first time retro, put it out clean. Still, gonna have to cop.
2 years, 6 months ago on Nike Air Max 1 VNTG – Dark Obsidian – Neutral Grey
@Slick_kicks Right on, enjoy 'em. As for me, well I guess you know you've officially become an old head when you settle for a Jordan retro over a NB drop.
2 years, 8 months ago on Concepts x New Balance 999 “Seal” – Release Reminder
@Slick_kicks You got lucky, man. Those sold out with the quickness.
Killed it on the Kennedys, Killed it on these. Can't wait.
2 years, 8 months ago on Concepts x New Balance SEAL 999 – Updated Release Info
The AM2 Light are the front runner for my most wanted model to retro. The original squared were more comfortable and didn't get that weird forefoot bend the light was prone to, but look at that silo. sick as f***!
2 years, 8 months ago on Classics Revisited: Nike Air Max2 (1994)
Looks like the same material JB used for last years Black/Metallic V's, but overall, looking pretty good, even in the sample stage. It'll be nice to cop these by themselves without having a pair of 19's grandfathered in.
