Nike wouldn't want to make a lot of pairs because they would lose their "it" factor. I'm all for having more pairs. But Nike's thinking is that if you have the pair that everyone has, they won't be cool. It's how they get you. Sneakers are like a drug. Nike has you think that this next great pair is one you need and when you bend over backwards to get them, they're promoting the next great shoe. Just how it works.

This gets me so mad. Most kids probably haven't worked a day in their lives and get their money from their parents. I'm 16 and I know what hard work and sweat is. Working weekends after school, paying some bills and trying to save up to get the sneakers I want is a good feeling, not just getting the money easy from their parents. They give sneakerheads a bad name.

Same thing goes for Jordans, Foams, etc.

One of the main reasons for the upping in price is the growing cost of oil. They have to ship it by boat. Let's not forget the materials as well. I'd rather have all the sneakers built in the USA. Sure, it will be even more expensive (a little bit more), but the quality will be top notch and you'll know that the pair you're getting is the real deal.

Why does 23isback.com say that they are releasing on June 29th?

I'm so happy and lucky. I went to Foot Locker like around Mid-day and expected these to be sold out (I'm in NYC, so even more reason why they would sell out). I asked for a pair in size 11 and to my luck, they had them!!! Too many people were going for the grapes. To be honest, all the hype and those fake sneakerheads trying to get a pair ruined my liking for the Grape 5s, just like they did with the breds.

I voted for the Royals, but not because they're an OG color. That''s nonsense. They hold personal value to me because blue is my favorite color. I've never owned a pair of Royals, but I would love to in the future. Whether you love them or the Galaxies or any other colorway, do it because it means something to you, not because of some trend.

@clueheffner Better for people who actually like them and want to buy them. They were already irrelevant in the early 2000s.

I think you can tell to that these BC3s look much different then the ones from 01 and beyond. They look much more whiter and cleaner, which might mean that  this a sample that might release. Plus, all the Jordans that were shown in that part of the segment were the ones from 2012-2013

I'm really, really feeling the XX8's. They're like the sneaker you wouldn't want to drop too much money on them because there are better out there, but something you would like if they price was right.

 @Sneakerhead2320  @StephenDensmore  @Kev Loco I heard Jordan also rose the price a bit for the threes and the ones because they had to pay a bit to use the Nike Air name. Even though they are a subsidiary of Nike, they still are their own brand. So basically, you're paying a little extra because Jordan Brand did.
