I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but if you hate on what Nike has done with this you are not a sneaker enthusiasts. Pretty much, go and kill yourself.
I haven't brought some uptowns in a long time, but when these drop I will end that drought, need those huaraches too lol
That jacket and those ones are on point! I'm feelin those huaraches too. That's a fly lil package they've put together. Not 40 acres & a mule but if the price is right it's a start.
