Nike Paid him $15K in 85' which would be like $33K now for a photo shoot. Jordan Brand didn't take off because of the logo, it took off beacuse of Jordan, Nike and Tinker. Is the guy who designed McDonald's logo suing now? You got paid for your job.

Totally agree on the OG Talaria. Forget the sneakerboot version and other colors, bring back the neon with the transparent bottom and graphic. PLEASE!!!!
I'm guessing the release will be October 21st, which is the date in the movie that they went to in the future. I would expect them to be well north of $500 and anyone who thinks $250 is crazy. The 2011 ones without power laces were released in limited quantities and none of them went for less than $1000. Now they're $5000-$10000 on ebay. Nike ain't stupid.

Nice. The anthracite trim on the midsole looks off, but overall the shoe looks good.

Is 361 the brand of shoe or just a Kevin love logo? I'm confused.

Love this concept and it looks great, although Airwalk did it almost 20 years ago with The Jim shoe. The matching Jackets are sick, always loved the original adidas jackets.

@IdontshineIGlow Totally agree. The 7's and 8's were the best and right before Lebron stuff really caught fire. The 9's, 10's, 11's have been more popular but not as good (style and comfort) in my opinion.

Very Cool. Should have done it a month ago, but sometimes production gets held up I guess.

I don' know why they're still producing new Jordan models. That can't account for more than 5% of their business. Their money's in retros and retro hybrids. Their main athletes Melo and CP3 have their own shoes which also don't sell as well and Westbrook and Blake wear the new stuff but I wonder at what point do they stop the Jordan line and just stick to retros. Put your best designers on the Lebron, Kobe, KD shoes

@jhandawgie Miner has worked on frees lately, but Toby Hatfield (Tinker's brother) was the originator of that line of shoes and the one who brought the shoe to life. They were inspired by the Stanford cross country team running barefoot on grass to strengthen their feet and reduce injuries.

@everyone82 I think Miner has mostly done running (pegasus, elite, ect.), Dolce did the Penny's and I think Sportswear stuff recently. Not sure about Dekovic.

@inTheNameofQuen It's not about KD, he'll have already been paid. It's Under Armour that has to make the money back. If the shoes retail for $100, they'll probably cost around $12 to make, the factory sells them to UA for $25, UA sells them to retailers for $55, so their profit is $30/pair or $75 if they sell them direct to consumers on their website. That means they'll have to sell 800,000 to 1 million pair a year to make it up. That's a lot of shoes.
5 months, 1 week ago on Jay-Z Gives Nike A Deadline To Match Under Armour’s Offer To Kevin Durant
@inTheNameofQuen if he signs with Under Armor, the shoes won't be affordable. They have to recoup that $285 mil somehow and it won't be by selling $80 shoes.
I would think even if Nike doesn't match the offer in actual dollars, but offers royalties on future retros of his Signatures so far he would end up making more with Nike in the long run.
hope Nike adopts this for their id program soon.

These are all pretty cool. Texas stuff always looks good with that color way. I like the Ohio state ones with the helmet sticker buckeye on the heel. Wish they had done that with tomahawks on the Florida State ones.

Are the designs painted on or scratched off? Either way, it's a great custom, but to get that detail by scratching the top coat away is really impressive.

I agree. Sneakernews should do a weekly game called High Fashion or Payless Shoe because I think most people would have a hard time telling the difference. Why would you buy a bad knockoff version of a shoe for 4x the price?

Similar to the 3lab5 Jordan 5's with the all over elephant print, I think the 112 is starting to be overdone. It used to be tastefully done on classic silhouettes making it look very high end. Just my opinion.

The Kiger has Zoom Air in the heel and forefoot, the Wildhorse just has it in the heel. Both are comfortable, but the Kiger is amazing.

@MelvinBetaphats @aintnojoke1 Awesome! I'd be interested in how you apply graphics to your customs. I've messed around a little with temporary tattoos and water slide decals but neither give a bold color and tend to fade and crackle over time. I don't really have the artistic skill to hand paint that kind of stuff, so I'm always trying other options. Anyways, love your stuff and keep the classes coming. Thanks.
