See, most of you guys might think these are trash, but I think these are great.  Why?  Well they're kicks that only some people will want to rock, made in a limited quantity.  It's a specialty shoe made for a niche consumer base.  I think that's the thing that people don't get when they make collabs.  You don't want to collab and make a shoe everyone wants; leave that to Nike.  Make a shoe that your niche wants.  Reminds me of the Supreme flys.  They weren't shoes everyone wanted, which, in my mind, was part of what made them a great release.  Every damn shoe made today is liked by ever 12 year old (either mentally or physically), so collabs should make shoes for the smaller groups, the people who aren't entranced by the limited general release fever.

@metaleggman well put. A lot of people don't understand is when nike does a collab they don't care wether or not you the masses will like it. They make more than enough money on their own.

@metaleggman    I have to disagree- Most peoples problem is the downtown itself and its overall feminine design and clown like midsole.  The AF1 is iconic for alot of collectors because it is the only shoe that truly represents the inner city and where we come from, it truly came up out of the streets of Baltimore, Philly, NYC.  . . . . . . . .  has nothing to do with a niche consumer base, hot is hot and trash is trash.  Nike doesnt create for everybody/masses remember that %90 of AF1 releases are swing and misses.
