2012 might be the best year ever for Nike Basketball signatures, as all three individual signature models are experiencing heavy fanfare across the globe. One such mass consumer of Nike Basketball wares is China, where the Big Three have reached a level of super-stardom thanks to their on-court feats on the Western side of the hemisphere. Nike fans in China are looking forward to the 2012 NBA All-Star Game as much as we are, so to commemorate the star-studded event, Nike Basketball has created this limited edition ‘All-Star Pack’ of the three signature shoes in a three-tiered set-up with special graphics and hangtags that read ‘Battle of Guangzhou’. Check out this China-exclusive release after the jump and let us know how sick it would be if this type of release hit the States! via malambert
all this shit means Nike employess are going to wind up dead at some point...someone is going to go apeshit over all this bullshit. i don't care either way
they gonna keep putting them China Packs and Year of (enter animal) joints cause when real sneakerheads get tired of the kicks here now there is a whole 'nother continent full of options!!!! Not worried about no Galaxy Foams or Jordan 11 release when u can find these and order these, which are much more exclusive.
I have enough of all those China marketing shit gimmick Nike has created. WHY CAN'T NIKE JUST STICK BACK TO THE ORIGINAL CONCEPT. STOP PRODUCING THOSE YEAR OF THE ANIMAL OR CHINA PACK SERIES......Nike is ruining the sneaker culture over the past few years. They should learn something from adidas or New Balance for fuck sake!
So which is the best? Lebrons, KDs, or Kobes? They are all different with unique themes and designs. pick
Just want you to know Nike doesn't give a shit about the American Consumer selling us damn near B grade shoes. They have us by the balls and know we don't have alternate brands that can compete in the lifestyle fashion designs of their shoes. China on the other hand has a ton. I wish consumers were more organized and could send Nike a big FUCK YOU BUDDY with a massive boycott but that'll never happen. Oh well!
i get that china is a way bigger market then we are but last time i check the nba and nike were based in the U.S.A. so china/japan/europe only exclusive packs will never make sense to me. As well as I get that a exclusive sneakers create huge buzz but thats not a reason not to have atleast some retailers in the U.S. sell them also.
Between the KD's and Lebrons for me...... If I had to choose I'd say LB's, not crazy about the KD logo and the low profile of them. Just my opinion anyway..
I'll sign up for that boycott, sick of the limited amount of shoes produced. Thats why the game is so effed up right now. Every shoe that comes out now is like a camping even no matter what shoe come out. The royal 10's sold immediately, who would have predicted that?
why!? because people would go ape sh*t and camp for weeks and resellers would triple the price. so fuk that single releases thats it.
