This concept has been done throughout the years in the neighborhood or inner cities, way back in the day. The random fact is that shoes/sneakers weren't in such popular demand back in the day. If you got a pair, one pair of sneakers it had to last you at least 9-12 months or more in some cases. My mom wasn't buying me sneakers like that! So I would get a pair of canvas pro-keds, and I would DAWG them to the ground!!! So my mom wouldn't buy me another pair until the beginning of the new school year, so she would go to the store and buy white shoe polish and make my bad boys new!

The reality was, that they looked new from far, but whn you got close, you can see the horrible white streaks from white polish all over the shoe, we did it because we were poor. So now they do because their rich?

I guess times have really changed?! Wow!

This shoe wasn't a shoe that most kids wanted back in 87', it was a down played version of the AJ 2's released the year before. You almost got clowned back in the day if you had a cheaper version on the AJ'2 especially if if was this sneaker. But I appreciate the fact that NIKE is bring this back, don't get it mistaken, this isn't a classic shoe it just so happens to be a lost shoe that they call classic. Nike has a way of re-creating a shoe but in these days, its just a hologram of what the shoe used to be.... b- grade quality I'm sure will make this shoe like the rest of what Nike is putting out today.. Great concept thou... Nike please bring back the original qulaity materials! Thank you!

I can easily see these being a shoe that can be re-toched up and paint the sole from white to black throw some white speckles on the black sole part to give it a different look... Other than that, maybe not...

What is sad is that people will diss these which are not bad at all. But the moment that JB releases these, people will be definitely camped out for these. I'm not a big fan of costumes shoes, (IMO) I think they're jsut too many out there, it's too over saturdated. I beleive It should be treated like art, only putting out a few customes very so often, not every week. But since SN and SC will highlight daily, I guess the artist will feel to customize everything they feel needs to be customized.

These are pretty Nice.... The sad part part is that JB puts the real life story as the orgins of the sneaker, and most of these kids or people who copp don't even care to find out, all they want to know is when they drop and how much!? #FactOnly

I'm pretty happy that Jordan is putting these back out, hopefully they won't be a limited release? I can't lie I'm one of those people that would have spent $500 for a pair just because I want them back in my collection since the early 90's. These were one of the best original CW that ever dropped in the history of Jordan, before all the hype! but since they are dropping it's best to wait!  Now you know that tese will be a B-grade shoe just like another current release that  have, you can see it in these pics how sloppy the show is put together, but i guess us beggers can't be choosey! smdh! Yes! let the HYPE begin! lol.

It seems that Nike/Jordan makes the rules and breakes them as well. I feel that they have the wrong people making the wrong decisions on what goes out to consumers. The decision makers don't put time and effort to find out what the people really want! For example, this release could have been thought out better, I'm not saying that these are horrible, but these aren't something i would camp out for either. But as long as the internet plays a part in showcasing these it will create a buzz worthy of someone copping these.

I agree with many who say "don't buy" but these are so many different views of those who have a real reason to buy and those who don't! This is call the baiting season to find out who is going to be a sucker and spend $300 plus and the rest who buy the $180 version which will sell out for sure! But this will a test for setting the new high in cost on America. $400 in Europe for shoes trust me don't feed into the the Euro is much greater than the peso americano! some kids that will purchase the $300 version don't have real responsibilities no mortgages or rent to pay, no food to put on the table mom and dad will do that for them! Shot I'm a single guy with a real good job and this price is high for me!syne $180 will do if he comes out with a cool color way?! But the last time I checked the LBJ regular cw wasn't selling out! I think you can go on Nike.com and get them unlike retro jay's that sell everytime! The only cw that sell pout for LBJ is his south beaches and that's it! His shoes aren't that great! Even his Olympic 9's didn't do as well, they still in the stores but hype beast will be hype beasts so we will watch carefully as who's wrong and who's right on this!

I don't rock AF1's anymore but I have to say that this sneaker right here is one of the best CW editions that Nike has ever produced!!!  This is one of the "Holy Grail's" of AF1's, tru story! I think these pictures don't really show the truth about these sneakers, i think if you see them in the hand and on the feet you could really grasp the sexiness of this sneaker.

If wayne is doing it for a check then more power to him! Because you know he used to rock them ugly a** lugz that birdman used to endorse a few years ago! They were straight AF1's rip off! and I'm sure they got paid but it never translated to actually selling sneakers for the company and I'm sorry this pair of supras won't do anybetter unless Sn & SC hype it up! and they only make about 500 pairs then that will be the only way for them Air Weezy maight get some air time. Other than that forget it!!!!!

Adidas should look to their Y3 divisions to see if they can make a better shoe for one of the great players on the game today. This shoe is ok ,not anything to stand on line about. No, Nike isn't  the only sneaker co that our lives evolve around but you have to give it to nike to always make noise in the sneaker game by just thinking out the box and putting out great products. So the good people of Adidas should take a page out of the Nike manual and start doing things differently! They have the right division ins Japan for the Y3 sneaker so what are they waiting for to Drose to leave and go to Nike?!!?!?!?!?! Hurry Up!!!!

These have to be the worst Air Penny release in it's history. Tell me what detail in the shoe that makes it special? Nike has put out better Air Penny products before so what the hype about for this shoe? Absolutely nothing! This shoe only carries the name and nothing else. as many nice editions that Nike has ever given penny these are the freaking worst I've seen!

Let the HYPE begin!!!! smdh...  these looking like a 2012 version of the Nike Air Darwin and that wasn't a hyped sneaker. But because it carries the name LBJ name the "HB" will drool all over this shoes as if it was released by God himself! lol. But the sneaker will be over priced and over hyped starting right now!!!!

This is a sign for things to change as we speak?! Nike has the right to raise prices when they want! But we also have a right as consumers to either stand up against such high prices or stand with Nike and say I'm buying no matter what! I know his sneaker will sell, no doubt! But will it sell out like retro sneakers from AJ and Nike?I highly doubt it!

 

Even AJ couldn't t keep up raising the prices of wack ass team jordan kicks by Melo, Wade, and CP3. This $300 will not sell out and if so I will apologize to all that reads this! But the only LBJ 10's that will sell for sure is the $180.  In my opinion the regular CW isn't that great looking! The Gold medal and the Miami Nights are the only decent sneaker LBJ is putting out the rest aren't that great to be spending $180 plus! This $315 sneaker will be sitting on the store shelves with the rest of his elite collection! Nike is wrong for overpricing and we are more wrong for overpaying!!!
