@hrbomber1113 Nevermind. The tongue wasn't really visible in this pair, plus the blue outline around the swoosh looked much brighter than the OG CW, but after looking at other articles with different pics, it is the OG CW. YOU WERE RIGHT!

@JIMCHORE First off, that's another site that sells unauthorized and replica sneakers. Second, why the fuck would you ever think that shitty site would ever stock a shoe that never went into production and was originally created in the EARLY 80's? CUT IT OUT.

3 days, 9 hours ago on Supreme x Nike Air Force 1 High “Red”
@sraugaj It's not always about loud/complicated colorways or designs. Personally, I'm not a fan of the AF1, but I'll probably cop these just off the strength of me being a Supreme and classic Nike head. Yes, there are only subtle differences from a normal red pair of AF1s (save for the "WORLD FAMOUS" on the straps, a Supreme hallmark), but those subtle details definitely set them apart from a regular pair. But that's just my opinion.
BTW, just because someone likes something that happens to be popular or something that YOU don't like does NOT make them a "fu**ing sheep". The sneaker community and society in general would be much better if people with that kind of mindset cut it out.
This stuff was dope the first couple customs he did. At this point, it is stale, repetitive, and boring. Right now, dude is the definition of a one-trick pony. It'd be nice to see him use his skills to bring something fresh to the table.

I'd definitely love to grab a pair, so long as they're not overpriced. If they're the same price as the regular joints, I'll definitely cop, but if they're anywhere close to Raf Simons prices, I'll definitely be passing.

@Squizzy3000 I don't think so, bro. Nobody is buying those Nouveau's, and this is in the same wheelhouse. The only reason people are so hype over these is A.) A high-end clothing brand is attached to it and B.) most importantly, it's LIMITED (the word that makes the average hypebeast's head explode).

Dope colorway on a classic shoe. Kinda wish the sole was solid blue rather than translucent, but it's not a deal-breaker. These will be copped.

@AWK21 I wonder if there is any way to "finish" the shoe by coating the paint with some sort of material, like a customizer would do after painting a shoe. It would be dope to be able to do that once the paint on your pairs got a look that you were happy with, effectively saving that look for the life of the shoe. I've never painted shoes though (or anything else for that matter, save for a few months doing commercial painting), so I have no idea if this is possible.
Any customizers/artists care to chime in?
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Lance Mountain x Nike SB Air Jordan 1 by Dank Customs
Yo, Dank is a beast (one of, if not, my favorite customizers), but save for the Lance Mountain face logo on the outer heel of the left white shoe (seen in the 3rd pic from the bottom), the other LM face logos look way off, due to the "teeth" being done incorrectly. If you Google "Lance Mountain logo", you can see how the logo was supposed to look. It doesn't make sense that he would make one of the face/logos on point and then change the rest of them up. I get that artists want to put their own spin on things, but changing such an integral part of his logo is like putting an afro on the Jumpman. Don't get me wrong, his work was amazing on these shoes (as per usual), save for the teeth thing. But maybe there's some reasoning behind it that makes complete sense.
The Blue Phase 2 Vintage joints look OK, but everything else is their typical boring stuff.

I think the word was that it would have the pump, only it wouldn't be operational. Pump or no pump, I need at LEAST one pair of these in both OG colorways (plus maybe the black San Antonio ones)! My mom nixed getting these for me as a kid the second she saw the price tag, but now that I can buy them myself, you can be damn sure these will be added to the collection!

3 months ago on Air Jordan 6 “Black/Infrared” – Release Date
@kchinn8 Oh, ok, I misunderstood you. Imo, the Infrared from this year (the White VI's; haven't seen enough pics of the Black joints to have an informed opinion) were a bit too bright compared to the OGs, but that's just me. As far as the Black/Infrared VIs from the Infrared pack, I think they were pretty true to the OG Infrared colorway, def more so than the 2014 White/Infrareds, but again, this is just my opinion.
@kchinn8 @That Uncut Raw Not sure what you're talking about with "true infrared". There was the Black/Varsity Red release in 2010, as well as the Black/Infrared release (that came with the White/Infrared VI's as the Infrared Pack).
As long as the "Infrared" is actually infrared, rather than hot pink, I'll cop a pair. If not, I thankfully still have my Infrared Pack joints in crispy condition. That fucking hot pink bullshit on the White/Infrared VI's was the worst thing to happen this year w/ Jordan Brand!
I will most definitely be copping these joints. I remember watching MJ's first game back from his first retirement (against the Pacers) when he was wearing these. Man, I am getting old...
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Air Jordan 10 “Chicago” – Remastered for 2015
@inTheNameofQuen The Fire Red 4/5s and the White Cement 4s definitely have that trash, plastic-like "leather". Compared to the better quality Air Jordan releases, you can definitely notice what the two guys before me are talking about. When he said you must be young, I think he's assuming that since you think the quality of the leather is good on those drops, you must not have experienced the higher quality releases of old.
That is PINK, not Infrared. You would think they learned from the debacle that is the 2014 White/Infrared VI's, but nooooooo! Fucking Jordan Brand... Spring 2014 can't come fast enough.
