@Tomba89 I think it's a matter of personal preference. I like bright colors as well, but that doesn't necessarily scream "Black History Month" to me. At least on these AJ1s there are somewhat "tribal" patterns, and the use of luxe accents (i.e., python embossed leather Swoosh and strap, gold buckle, and leather lining) make these shoes pop. The volt, photo blue, 3M and the "BHM" logo used on the Spizikes, M9, and other AJ1s just didn't do it for me.

The LeBrons are super clean. However, I can't justify dropping $285 for them myself. They'll drop down in price just like the Elite 9s soon, I bet. Seriously though, won't be worth the cop unless LeBron wins the championship in them. There has to be some meaning behind shoes and not simply the design to rationalize copping.

@Mike03Kap @Young_Doodie If y'all haven't been already, you should check out Kicksburgh 2013 put on the by guys at CMU that did the Sneakerology 101 course. The event was pretty big last couple years, i.e., it took up an entire gym, with a lot of vendors and curators showing off their collections. Will probably be going down the first weekend in May.

This is what JB's entire BHM collection should have looked like instead of the neon green/stealth theme...

The lining and insoles are fire! Would have been crazy on the foamposite section of the upper...

This is arguably the best evolution of a current player's signature line for Nike and Jordan Brand. The IV and V look especially dope--almost futuristic--while maintaining the major architectural design aspects of the first 3 shoes.
