One of the true high-top basketball gems in the 1980s was the New Balance BB900 that James Worthy rocked during that magical “Showtime” era that the Los Angeles Lakers and its fans relished. The sick design made them awfully popular on the basketball courts as well as on the feet of kids in school hallways, so there’s no question that these would be a popular pick for a Retro soon (although the 2010 re-release of the P790 wasn’t hugely popular). It’s quite rare to see a pair of originals in such pristine condition, and considering a retro release isn’t noted in the books anytime soon, you don’t want to miss out on this listing! Check out the detailed photos below and take a look at the full listing from dballaholic on eBay.
