With 2012 serving as the 30th Anniversary of the Nike Air Force 1, we were expecting a slew of great releases and concepts of the ‘it’ Nike Sportswear shoe. We’ve already received the astounding ‘Pearl’ Collection, the ‘Year of the Dragon’, and the monthly Nike iD limited-edition design option, so to say that Air Force 1 fans were overlooked would certainly be a misguided statement. This Holiday season, the Air Force 1 Low will received a contemporary upgrade as the Air Force 1 Low will join forces with the Air Foamposite Pro to form the Nike Air Force 1 Foamposite Pro Low; the ‘Pro’ comes from bulbous black swoosh that juts out of the side – just as it does on the Air Foamposite Pro. Aside from this ‘Retro Blue’ colorway, you can expect one like a ‘Metallic Pewter’, as previewed earlier this month. Your thoughts? Let us know in the comments below. via HS
One thing with retailers & resellers sky rocketeering the price high & Nike joining with this price hike especially the Lebrons and this F**king design. i'am throwing off my towel for this so called sneaker game. i'll just get another life...Sh*t!
These will be an easy 225. That's the same sole of the supremes back in 06 07 or so..they were 225 for So Cals... With the 2012 price hike..I'm guessing 245. These mash ups are beyond ridiculous. I saw a shock R4 on a air max LTD bottom in the mall. That there has made me look to other brands. I'm losing respect for Nike right about now. Bull**** stock quantities, plastics, and price jumps. I'm beyond frustrated. I just wish I could get MY 1 pair of shoes that I want without callin around, paying triple, and having a site crash. But these...pass!
NIKE please release them in by May/June in time for the summer.. These are just right for summer esp the blue c/w
HOW... HEAVY... ARE THE FEET... THAT... WEAR... THESE... HEAVY... SNEAKERS... and who reeaaalllyyy ever liked the jewel swoosh... I mean really???????
These are what the teal foams shoulda been, a murdered out sole...or at least darker than ice blue. Might have to holla at these
personally I only like all black leather High top af1s with the gummy sole everything else wack. if I want foams I'll buy foams these are wack and that sole is just as stupid now as it was on afjordans but to each his own do you cause ima do me and never think bout these again
EVEN though I wouldnt buy I somewat like them, somewat. But when I first saw the last pics I thought they were hideous. Maybe a few more colorways will clear it up for me
WTF is going on with that sole?!! These look like orthopedic shoes.... maybe they're the new Kobes. (sorry, I had to)
Dear Nike: Please stop with this bullshit you been on lately......$275 Lebrons, now these contraptions. Whats next, Foam/Jordan/AF1 collab? Then im truly done with the "sneaker game".
Your complaining about prices and whats being made. Nike is not the only corporation in the industry that makes sneakers. And the price on the lebron is fair. Learn why the sneaker price was raised and then complain. This is a basketball sneaker. Dudes are wearing it for fashion. You dont see the community that buy red bottoms complaining about the price of their shit.
I'd rather buy a pair of "red bottoms" that are made with the fine quality leather and are hand constructed, than a sneaker made with SYNTHETIC leather that costed MAYBE 3 bucks to make. Ive been doing this since '88 so let's not get into "learning" anything about sneakers when it comes to me. Resellers are still gonna make their money....now we are gonna be able to charge more if anything. Or are you talking about the "technology" that their trying to sell to the unknowing public? These meshing of sneakers are horrible....bottom line.
plus these are "anniversary" editions, so u know they are +200 lol but i'd rather cop foam af1 than leather af1, these dont crack or get dirty, i got the all black high af1 foams and i love this collab bcuz my money is well spent with ANY of my foams bcuz they take forever to get worn out or look used, especially with a person like me thats takes care of my kicks.. if u hate rhen whatever thats your opinion, but dont talk shit about the collab bcuz i bet these will last 10x longer than ANY +$150 leather/suede kicks u will EVER cop lol
I copped some 100% italian leather Gucci dress shoes, made in Italy, for only $175 at a Gucci outlet in Cali. Yeah ur right, some stuff is made in the same factory, but last time I checked...none of Nike's GR/QS stuff was made in Italy Btw... You can go to a shoemaker's shop in NYC with your own leather if you wish, and make a custom fitted pair for under $300 that will probably last as long as you.
You are paying for the Louboutin name ... Gucci, Louis's, Prada's, Lanvin and all the fashion houses are robbing you sucka's blind ... LOLOLOL!!! If it's not real snake skin or Gator you are getting robbed!! My boy works for one of these braands ... he spilled the beans on them to me ... told me that some of the same factories where they make Nike's and Adidas are the same place they make the fashion brands!!! LOLLOLLOL!!! Now don't get it twisted I love them high end jokers too but I'd rather spend my money one something that has more than a fancy name associated with it ... just my 2 cents ... and trust me ... Gucci got me back in 89 with my $250 Gucci High tops ... and the leather mesh low's ... 'Butter' leather and 'red bottom's' don't mean that much to me these days ... when Gucci ... Prada or one of these other 'high-end' brands make some foams I'll drop 5 bucks on them real easy ... but that will never happen ... they would want to charge you a G for that ... but I bet none of ya'll would complain then :(
