The world isn't big enough...
No. Zoom Generation is good to go... I remember what was trendy in 89-90... And for some strange reason, Nike REFUSES to retro the Air Force V, year after year after year. Billy Hoyle gets a nod though... I lived on the playground as an 8,9, and 10 year old and NOBODY was rocking Command Forces. Everyone who didn't have Jordan's or some variation of the Flight line was rocking Air Force V lows (white, black and infrared trim). Hell, Mike had on a pair in a Dream Team photo. And everyone wearing Nikes in the league had them. The fail to retro the most relevant shoes from certain eras. This list sucks and I disagree with it.

Performance aside, these shoes ARE! Take a good look at these in profile and tell me, honestly, they are ugly... Then I'll accuse you of being a fiend and lecture you on the adverse effects of substance abuse. Think forward. Live forward. Imagine how much better Nike's flagship Airmax runner would do if '95's haven't been a available for purchase for 18 consecutive years. 95's will be 30 in '15 and they're tired, played. These Kobe's are a step forward. They look very versatile; like I would be surprised if we don't see an NFL cat with a cleated pair of these. Fire... You know it burns shit, but you still want to spark one, then throw things into it. Masterpiece, indeed!

Def! A lot of cats were on those black grapes. If they'd been released in, let's say, black tumbled leather, then I'd have kept them... BUT they came out in that faux suede material and reeked of black dye. They say in a trash bag, in their box, until I could trade up (yes, up) to the Fear V's.
NB had a great year of collabs. Like I said, the Burn Rubber 577's are nice and give the Ronnie Feig/ Kithn 577 "Americana" (also not on this weak list) a run for their money. Taxi XII's? Please. How many of you didn't have a fresh pair of these before they dropped in '13? Gamma Blue XI's? Hype Beast Jr. Prom jump-offs. Lol. What about all the Nike Air Huaraches that released this year? As far as new designs are concerned, the Lebron XI is refreshing; yet cats scorn them... Kind of like they did when the Air Jordan XI dropped...

@CK16 Obvious that I didn't read the comments first. I agree on the V's.
Not sure why the Fear V's didn't make the list. JB greatest accomplishment for '13… That is unless I missed it. Also the Burn Rubber 577's were dope. Maybe I missed those as well.
Wish they released these in OG form... The extra leather over the toe box makes this shoe, to me.

GSXR-100? Does this sight have an editor. The bike described in this article is missing 900 cubic centimeters.

@inTheNameofQuen indeed. I remember those too. They had a leather-like glove on the shoe instead of the neoprene glove on the zooms. That's all you had to say. Lol. You're right.

@inTheNameofQuen maybe on sale
@ $75. Not a single pair of Nikes with Zoom Air cost anything less than $100 back then. Either way, shoe is dope.
@inTheNameofQuen I believe those were $114.99 back in the day. Zoom air was new back then.
I do. So much suede and leather on these. When you wear them around town, people use adjectives like, "Neat", then ask what they are. The result is instant satisfaction that you own something that most others don't and can't because by the time you see them on someone's feet, they're no longer available. They are comfortable beyond explanation and have that "hand made" look to them. They are the Ducati 999 of the NSW line.

I prefer the porthole styled air bag on this shoe.
