[quote="snkrholics"]Uglier than Rhianna. Whats up with all this futuristic shiz. Crazy how style has changed from the 90's. It seems like people nowadays are either into some crazy azz colorways and animal prints or into that dark european crack head lookin shiz. What ever happened to inovating a shoe you could actually rock in the streets. Thank god for retros.
All this new shiz doesn't compare to what WAS as far as style goes. Compare all the stuff they release now to all the classics like Penny 1 max, nike air barrage, jordans up to the 13's, zoom flights, dynamic flights, Pro streaks, ndestrukts, turmoils, air more uptempos, cb 34 max and so on. What I'm sayin is they need to introduce more heat like that and dont worry so much about performance like they did with jordans, thats why he wore trainers for practice. I wear kicks kuz of how they look with little care about comfort, breathabilty or ankle support like 90% of people who buy gymmies. I'm far from swag kiddo I rock what I like not whats hyped. I aint here to bash anybody or their style just giving my opinion. Do you man and if you like em' go ahead and buy em'.
Quite possibly two of the absolute stupidest quotes I have ever read on SC, and that says a TON. None, NONE of the shoes you mentioned were designed to "rock" - you played in them first and foremost. The style came from the court, not the street. AF1 and AJ1 made ball shoes acceptable off court. You may not be like the swag kiddos but that is exactly what you sound like with this argument. And I still want two pair of these. In any color...
