Got the black/white pair off of the bay, super comfortable, but hate the tongue on these.

Although it was not a groundbreaking shoe design wise when it was originally released, it resembles the Adidas Forum in the heel counter and midsole structure, but many sneakers looked the same back then. 


The nice thing is it appears that they(Etonics) decided to use quality materials on these retros. The leather looks soft and comfortable. The downfall of the recent Ewing remakes was the poor quality used.

@_iandeleon_ @Lurker111  I couldn't argue with you, if this was actually Lin's team, but fact is, it's Harden's and Howard's team. Lin is a bench player. Harden will never lead this team to a championship because as you stated, he doesn't play defense. The team as a whole is very poor defensively.


All the teams that have won it all had role players who could do it all, Jordan, Bryant, James, Kidd, Duncan..

@ThaHerbalist  Its all about greed. They can still give us the quality if they wanted to and still turn a profit, but most kids these days don't care or know any better. So Nike/Jordan can pump out this garbage and still be stackin' and laughin'

Calling these "Masterpieces" is a little much. I'm sure they're great to ball in, but there's four different patterns competing for attention on this shoe which any self-respecting person who considers himself/herself a "Designer" should know better than to put together. Carbon fiber pattern+multi-colored speckles+swirly/brush pattern+multi-colored knit=ONE UGLY looking shoe. Its like a patchwork quilt for your feet. Oh yeah, there's quilt on there too!

Is this the reason why we haven't see any more real Air Prestos released over here in a while? The Presto are the most comfortable running I've found to date, hoping these compare. Looks wise I don't think they look as good as the original ones.

 @damruff Appears that since Reebok was bought out by Adidas in 2005 they're sticking to the plan of releasing the same old models time and again with a million different colors or just being plain lazy by releasing the exact same shoe numerous times...example: these, the Dee Brown Omni Pumps, and Chang Court Victory Pumps...a shame really, because as you stated, there's so many classic Reeboks from the past that deserve a retro.

Although I do like the silhouette of the chukka upper, let's be honest, the AM1 midsole isn't exactly the most comfortable wearing platform out there and imo, does not integrate well into the overall design of this shoe.

imo, the original midsole of the Humara is much more comfortable and durable than these entirely painted midsoles that crack and chip within a few wears. I realize Nike is trying to breath life into an old shoe with these exploded colorful bubbles,  but these fusions are...meh

Its cool they did a modern take on a classic, but its a disappointment that they only went halfway. The midsole is the same, painted with a very low quality product that usually cracks and peels after several wears. It would have been interesting to see them update it with Lunarlon or a more cushy phylon as opposed to the old school dense foam...

Why would you copy a classic shoe and then go half-ass with the color placement? We know what you're trying to do Nike, capitalize off the popularity of the AM90, if you're gonna knock-off your own shoe do it correctly.

 @zamieo You kids have no clue what quality is nowadays. Creasing does not equal lower quality. Its quite the opposite when it comes to shoes. JB brand has pulled a quick one on you guys making you think that the cheap pleather they used on the wht/cmnt 4s is a quality product. Real leather creases and flexes, conforming to your feet making the shoe much more comfortable. If you have ever held a Jordan shoe made prior to 2005, you'd see...creased to shit.
