@kshaun12 Buy what YOU want to buy, man. Don't worry about what other people think or tell you is "hot". After all, you're the one that has to wear the shoes.

@kshaun12 @FutureTomorrow_ @txchres Nah. If anything, the VI's will have more of a price jump on the resale. Nobody is really copping 95's like that anymore, whereas, on the flipside, Jordans are hot. Throw in the fact that they're red, and you have a Hypebeast's dream. Personally, I think the VI's are wack, but that's just me. I don't know how popular that comic is, but if it is/was popular, I could see that bringing out a whole different demo you'll have to worry about trying to cop the VI's.

Those 95's are the first ones I've been really feeling in a long time. I might actually have to cop those. Kind of reminds me of the YOTD Wmns Air Max 1s, one of the shoes I most regret passing on in the past couple years.

Damn. If that green was brown, it would be the perfect Redskins runner. I can't decide if I like them. I feel like it's a little too "Christmas"-y for my tastes. The quality looks on point, though.

They should've picked a better model. The 1700 is one of my least favorite "retro" NB models. It's too "soccer dad" for streetwear, and nobody is going to buy that shoe for performance at this point. Had it been a different model, it could've been dope.

The only pair that is decent on this list is the ASICS. Everything else is somewhere between "meh" and "wack".

This is really bizarre, in as bad a way possible. Premier had done so well with its first 2 SB Dunks (even though the 2nd was pretty much a high top version of the 1st), so this is definitely a step back. Regardless of what the inspiration is for this shoe (I can't imagine it just being an ode to the "Yeezy"), all anyone will ever think of it the Yeezy. Hopefully Premier scraps this and tries to come up with something unique.

Anybody know the quality difference between the 2003 and the 2011 versions? I'm wondering if it's worth getting a 2003 pair and doing a sole swap...

These look like a Way of Wade/D Rose mash-up. Not bad, but very lazy from a creative standpoint. I definitely wouldn't rock them on the casual tip, but I'd probably ball in 'em if the colorway was 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.

@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).

@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?

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.

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)!

@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!
