Hit the jump with us to watch the video from hosts Russ Bengtson and DJ Clark Kent and let us know if you like how the series is shaping up.
WHY pay more?? 160-170 is more than enough for every retro, resellers on ebay asking 400$ for '88 retros smh like Nike or JB need extra money or had problems on selling, look at the shit's happening a while ago in malls or footlocker at release date
Why do ALOT of people think Jordan Brand/Nike think its some "Luxury" made product??.. It never was before and it sure aint now. All this quality talk.. what do you think they use premium calf skin or lamb skin leathers?..NOPE...Nike is now more eco friendly and uses Synthetic materials. Again as a consumer if youre looking for luxury materials invest in Balenciaga, Gucci, LV and so on.. not nikes.
Properly done retro LMAO all they did was throw nike air on back and left jordan on bottom sole which doesn't impress me cause its still shit materials and quality Jordan's will never be like they were! I would pay the extra if I new I was gettin what I paid for meaning high quality retros!
@CHVCKNORRIS it's not a matter of it being a luxury brand. Luxury brands, such as LV for instance, don't necessarily mean quality. LV's quality has gotten worse over the years in actuality. People just want their money's worth.
I wouldn't have been able to distinguish the quality had I never shopped at the boutiques haha. however you missed the point entirely. I agree Jordan/Nike is not luxury, but there should be some standards met when people are spending 200 bucks...homie
