Another interesting thought comes to mind here. Would Jordan have been the household name and grand superstar that we all know had he signed with Adidas. Keep in mind that while he is arguably the greatest basketball player of all time Nike's marketing machine is what helped to propel him to the recognizable figure we all know today. Nike putting MJ front and center in their marketing strategy brought in consumers that traditionally were not basketball fans at all. Had he signed with Adidas I cannot see MJ being as popular with non-basketball markets. This cross pollination is still evident today when you look at all of the non-basketball athletes that are sponsored by Jordan brand.

I don't know why but I am lusting over these. I need these on my feet NOW!!!!!!

Yes please. Would have been even more of a banger if they had incorporated blaze orange accents and laces.

Not sure what the price tag will be on these but the definitely look to be worth the coin. Solid collab. Packer as always hits a home run.

So excited they released another Larry Bird sock. Had to be one of my favorite pairs until my dog decided to turn it into a chew toy.

I am really liking these. I bet they are even more comfortable than the regular GLIII. Cant wait to find a pair. The wood grain on the heel is a nice touch as well.

I am really liking these. I have always wanted to pick up a pair of SL loops. They just look so comfy. Never could find a colorway I liked other than the Wish collab. Hopefully these get slept on.

*Yawn*. These don't really seem like anything special. Looks like someone just painted some black and cements and added new insoles.

Stain magnets. I have a pair of Koston 1's in this color and you can never get these clean again. You can see evidence of this on in the middle photo on the second page. Love the colorway but these are just too much work to keep crispy for me to cop.

Insta-cop. Suede looks super buttery on these.

Love my Sk8-Hi's. I am surprised at the comfort every time I put them on. I snagged a pair of the "italian leather" pack for cheap a while back and the material quality is ridiculous. Vans has always come through with high quality product at an amazing price.

Reebok needs to put the court victory on their custom program. I would kill for a "Kennedy" themed colorway of this shoe.

For some reason this hybrid just "fits". They don't look like a fly by night mash up to make a quick buck. Its almost like they were originally designed to have a pump. It will be interesting to see how the fit is on these with the thicker tongue due to the air bags inside.

Bordeaux Kamikaze's. Yes please. I love this colorway. The gold really makes this pop, and that suede looks super buttery

I'm loving the combo of mesh an nappy suede. These definitely are on my radar. May have just found a replacement for my beat Roshes.

Colorway is a bit too busy for me. If they did these in the medicine ball colorway I would be all over them.

Is that a translucent sole I see on the back? Not bad. I would need to see these in person to know for sure on the leather. Too bad they will fly off the shelves and I'll never have a chance to just walk into a shop, try them on, and buy.

Kamikaze II Bordeaux? I'm really digging these. Hopefully they get slept on.

I agree with the sauconys. They just look amazing on foot. I get more complements on my 9000s than any other sneaker in my collection

@CMoney300 @DavidWalter not trying to be a hypebeast. To each his own. I just dislike the silhouette and the toebox shape. The brand doesn't make much of a difference to me.

No thanks. These are womens shoes right? That would make a lot more sense.
I spotted last years pair at a Ross for $45.00. Hopefully people sleep on these too.

Seeing the comments it seems most people judge this shoe based on its astetics. Is it bad that Nike designed a shoe from the ground up as a skate shoe? Pretty sure most serious skateboarders care more about the performance and durability first.

I personally am excited to see what comes from this relationship. Based on the info we had running up to the annoucment Kanye wants to make his product line not only larger, but more accesable to the general public. I think this is a good move. Hate him all you want the man is an innovative individual when it comes to design. It should be interesting to see what he does with the vast resources Adidas has to offer.
