The last time the NBA lost games to a labor dispute, Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs won the first of four championships; could a well-rested veteran SATX team recapture the crown in a shortened 2011(?)-12 season? No matter how the next season turns out, Duncan’s legacy as one of the greatest post players of all time is cemented, though his sneaker story remains as many of the big men in the modern era who were overlooked while flashier forwards and guards stole the spotlight. Duncan has all of one significantly memorable model to his credit, a shoe that despite lacking official signature status, retains the nickname ‘Tim Duncans’ to this day. The Nike Total Air Foamposite Max will return in the OG Metallic Silver colorway later this month as a reminder of that first Spurs title run; should we take this as a sign of no pro basketball in the States until next year? Have a look at some new images and let us know if you can stomach the $225 MSRP on this dope fusion of Max Air cushioning and Foamposite injected construction. via Osneaker.

dont blame re-sellers its the greed of nike and nike alone they can still charge 1991 prices and still be a mutli-billion dollar company the prices going up and they using even cheaper materials then they usually do when they can use high class materials and charge what there charging now as long as we the people take anything they will do anything simple as that
i had these when i was 16yrs old, so the $225 price tag now is nothing. these are a must cop for true foam heads which i am. I hope they come with other CW's besides the black's and white/navy....
Yeah I agree $225 for some foams for 1 pair of shoes wow. Even if I was comfortable with payin that I just can't for just 1 pair of shoes that's crazzzy.
i agree 100% with yall, 225 is crazy and these are one of my favorites. but alot of yall dont live in the DMV, i dont know if i have the luxury of waiting for a price dop. this might be the only time i wish i didnt live in the greatest city in the world.
D.O.R (Death of Reselling) re-sellers have f***'d up the sneaker game, they are the reason these shits is $225 and also the reason j's are now $200 an up as oppose to $125 like back in the day. Nike makes billions per year so they have no reason to hike up their prices on any of their products. Nowadays their shoes are being sold off "hype" alone. The sooner the hype dies down the more reasonable the prices are going to get. Think about how much money nike would lose if nobody "hyped" up new releases or waited for hrs in bullshit weather just to buy a damn pair of shoes. If there were no sneakerheads there would be no Nike, we have more power than we think as consumers.
...classic but its a pss for me cause its not my style.Id wear them on-court though.Im sure they are quite comfy.
I payed 180 for them back in day art Nike I'll pass on these rather just save my money and get the air Jordan 10 Chicago 2 pairs smh
i likr the shoe... but just explain to me why this shoes price tag is so huge? just for a second and think what you could do with $225... you could buy 4 pairs of vans or 5 pairs of converse, hell pretty much any Jordan that's dead stock, get about 4 pairs of 511 Levis...i could go on and on but the fact remains there's no way to justify this price tag. for god sakes i could buy the my self some black cements and still have enough to take my girl out for dinner and a movie...... Nike i love you but WT were thinking?!
G Rock , what was the name of the Tim Duncans that had a rubber-type web on the top of the shoe?!. Maybe a 2000 or 20001 release...been looking for those ...
If this was a J all you young kids would be lining up, but even with the employee discount these are still a hit, but these are a cop. Too bad they probably gonna marinate next to my recent Kay Yow's, Lower Merion Aces until I fit them into my rotation...love and hate my shoe game! hahahaha
Not worth it. I personally think NOBODY should buy this shoe, if this one sells out in stores Nike will continue to raise the prices knowing that people will still foolishly buy their product. I highly doubt anyone's gonna listen to me but hey, just putting my 2 cents in there..
I saw these pics on MN And these pics are actually OG from osneaker.. I saw em almost a year ago.. Im still waiting on detailed pics of the 2011 pair
dam thats a hefty price tag. is this the most for a nike shoe ever? and yet with the price im stil 50/50 on these.
Not really resellers, Nike knows how.big foams are. Plus they were expensivs back in the day. And we all know Nike is boosting prices.
its simply called "nike air max duncan" the year was 2000... good luck finding a pair. as great as duncan is no one likes his shoes or game. its sad really.
You must not read any of the articles in here, just look at the pretty pictures? Nike already said the price of everything will go up http://sneakernews.com/2011/03/21/nike-set-to-inc.... Nike could sell them for $500 and they'd sellout all they have to do is add the words tier zero, quick strike or limited to. Things wont change until everyone stop feeding the resellers.
