Since when did our UT school colors involve so much silver?  The V's were mostly silver, granted the VI's were black & burnt orange. but why black? Now these 7's again with the silver… The KD IV was an on point UT color way, even down to the Longhorn on the tongue.. Even the burnt orange & white 3's were nice.. Nike needs to go back to Burnt orange & white for KD Longhorn shoes...

Lion's Pride CW gonna be Wild Hyped...  Along with "Terracotta Warrior" All these colorways will sellout in record time....

If you don't think so, then why has every colorway of the Jordan XX8 sold out? & they cost more than these...

I don't think many people realize how iconic the "Copa" is to the sport of soccer... Back in the day if you wore Copa's on the soccer field,  it was the equivalent of wearing J's  on the court..

 

With all the advances in soccer shoe technology by Nike, wearing these to play today would be like wearing any OG colorways of J's 1-5...

What happened to KD's "Deal" with Nike to never have his shoes priced over $100.00? Look for the KDV Elite to be $180 Nike 

You know  Nike still upset why they didn't release an Elite PS version of the KDIV...  They'll look to make up for it this year..

Funny, jut a few months ago everybody was crying about the Lebron X+ being $280 then all the Lebron + sold out... Now Nike is taking these to $305 & so many people want them that they gotta do a raffle/ ticket system to keep the peace...

 

What's the use of crying over prices if they're all gonna sell out any way? & Lebron's ain't the only shoe..

 

What happened to KD's shoes never being above $100 ?? Ha! Those days are gone.. His shoes will be at $150 next then $175 & in 2 years $200.... Foams?? Same thing Now they retail at $250...

 

The next few years will be interesting to watch.. When those Lebron X denim joints drop later this year, I'm already expecting a $325 price tag on those, don' worry those will sell out just like these Corks...

 @Gusto  @Sneakerhead2320 Sounds to me like you have to get these general release all- star shoes & be like everybody else, cuz you have no way to get Corks... I bet if they gave 'em to you you'd take them... Then again you sound like a beast so you'd probably just resale them....

 @hozezae I have Banned 1's.. & yes it's a 2011 shoe.. & yes the quality of leather used is way better than anything that JB has put out in at least the past 10-12 years, I know I have 2001 1's & the Banned 1's are way better Material wise than those.. they May be even better than the '94 retro...

 

So I guess my point is, Nike Didn't have a problem producing a high quality product like the Banned 1's in 2011 for $109.99 +tax.. with 3 pair of laces & all the extra details.. 

 

So what's the excuse for not doing that all the time?

 

I'll tell you one thing.. When I was a kid back in the 80's wearing 1's, 2's, 3's & 4's... I don't ever remember the paint cracking or chipping after wearing them..

 @StephenDensmore  @Kev Loco No, the "Nike Air" on the tongue is not worth $30.. It's just Nike Charging an extra $30 because the can. 

 

If "Nike Air" is the only reason for charging an extra $30, then someone please explain why the Banned 1's retailed at $109.99.. I mean those had the correct labeling not to mention 3 pair of Laces (Black, White & Red) The 2 piece box & the quality of material used was excellent..The leather looks amazing on them. People will say they were B-Grades, but anybody who has them or has seen them will tell you, if that's Nike's definition of a B-Grade then they need to be releasing B-Grades.. Cause they look really good.. Also all the little extra's such as the "X" on the heel & inside of the shoe is really detailed... 

 

Nike knows what they can get away with so they'll .... just do it..

You know, I picked up the Wolf grey 2012 last year because I got an employee discount on them & they actually were pretty comfortable & didn't look too bad with the short inner boot  ( I never used or wanted to see what the Hi strap looked like)

 

However these XX8, Damn... They are truly trash..  I don't care if these are sitting on outlet shelves everywhere, I just couldn't spend anything on these.... I don't think there's anything that could save these..

 

JB could always make these in a Galaxy colorway, South beach colorway or a Year of the Snake Colorway...  Then I guarantee the beasts would get the Thirst!

All nike has to do is make the mens sizes Nike+ technology slap a $270 price tag on them & they will sell out in record time.. Just like the Olympic, Crown Jewel & Blue Diamond color ways... say what you want but despite everybody crying about the price of the + technology all those colorways sold out faster than a rabbit gets f_cked.. 

 

It's all about the Hype, & these "All Star Galaxy X's" will sell out no matter what.. & the resale will be crazy high.. Looks like alot of the $180 color ways have stayed on the shelves.. Except for Jades.. But I guarantee Christmas X's will sell out, Prisms will sell out.. & does anybody actually think the $300 "Cork X's" are gonna sit on the shelves..

 @Da_Real_Big_Infinite  @Sneakerhead2320  @QKicks Honestly, I live in a smaller town about 300,000 people, Closest Nike store is 4hrs, then 8hrs, There are 2 Nike outlets, but they are both 2.5 hrs from me, 1 to the north& 1 to the south.., My town only has 1 mall with 1 footlocker, 1 footaction, 1 champs, 1 finishline... There are no boutique shoe stores here either..

 

Everything is a raffle here, they even raffled Bred 4's here, SMH..  so basically it's Hype beast central here... We get kicks but in super small quantities.. Our footaction was the only store here to get Pink foams & only 10 pair & they raffled them too...

 

I've only seen 1 person with DB3's , 1 person with DB4's, , 1 person with Galaxy foams & nobody with Yeezy 2's.. Basically I have no outlet for exclusive heat locally, only the internet.. I understand where I live has alot to do with it.. But then I see all the complaining on twitter & I think maybe these kicks are that limited..

 @QKicks  @Sneakerhead2320 of  DB9's only or 1,000 including the entire DB line? If that's the case then How limited are they... really?  I'm sure 21 Mercer had a good stock too & I know they weren't the only 2 stores in NYC who had them..

Not to mention Nike town Chicago I'm sure had plenty too.. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining... I'm just trying to understand the fact that all these people on twitter are complaining they couldn't cop a pair but yet in a few weeks it seems like they'll be popping up everywhere. Is it purely resellers of is this shoe that limited?

Just wondering exactly how limited are these? The DB 4 was supposedly super limited & next thing you know it seems like everybody has on a pair.. I was out in Vegas a few months ago & was told that the DB 4 was a common shoe out there... They said anybody that wanted a pair got a pair... SMH.. if that's the case, why the crazy re-sale prices?

 @hozezae Your right they'll probably be $140-$160 because of "Nike Air" on the tongue. But here's the messed up part, in 2001 The Retro 1's were $79.99... Now here's what's really messed up... Nike just upping the price cuz they can... It has nothing to do with the words "Nike Air" on the shoe..

 

Last Year Banned 1's retailed for $109.99, came with 3 pair of Lace (Red, Black & white) a nice two piece box, & Good quality leather... Anybody that has them can tell you the leather was good materials, 

 

So yes it can still be done for a good price, but why would Nike miss out on an extra $40.00 per pair, when the hype assures them they can sell them for $175.00 if they wanted to... No matter what the retail price is they will sell out....
