Ah so legit, but just not the iconic Reds

Not legit...not red.

Deets: (Click to show)
Voucher good for 2 D-Zone Grand Tier tickets.  Only good for the date, performance, and seating area listed above.  I'd suggest visiting the box office as far in advance as possible to get the tickets, to at least ensure you get 2 sets together.  Not sure where the D Zone Grand Tier is, aside from it being the upper-most level.  Box office hours are Mon-Fri 10a-6p, and Sat 10a-2p.

 

 

Still available...  Claimed.

I see... I thought there was 2 colorways of that model. a Black / Neon Green / Pink model, and then the all-Reds.

 

These are reminiscient of the Northern Lights Dunk Hi colorway.

There's 3. Solar Red's(pictured), Red October's and the Pure Platinum's. All 3 go for stupid money but October's go for way more than the others. Luckily the other 2 look much better.

I had a pair of legit red Octobers that I gave to a former boss as a "thanks" for helping me land a nice promotion. 2 days before the move the job got pulled, but it wasn't his fault at all so I didn't cause a fuss.
Cool shoes, but I'm not really a sneakerhead so retail price was the limit for me. Luckily I got in on the release day purchase. Would never pay the asking price of them now.

Wait till you read one of Spoo's posts where he can navigate and date the ridiculousness of 90s Versace. Or see some of the furniture and audio knowledge in here. Or some of the military guys waft into the thread and drops paragraphs on some foreign WW2 uniform stuff. It still amazes me three years in.

He dun good. The shoe was a joint effort from Onitsuka & 'Blue Ribbon Sports' (Name before Nike)

 

 

 

From my 'Golden Kicks, the shoes that changed sport' book.

 

"When it came to naming the shoe, the name Aztec was chosen to honour to host city of the upcoming Olympic Games. When Adidas released the Azteca Gold, they threatened to sue unless the name was withdrawn. With his characteristic dry wit, Bill Bowerman suggested 'Cortez', after the Spanish conquistador who conquered the Aztec empire"

(Late 60s/Early 70s)

 

Another reason why I love Nike.

 

@Bahljs isn't the only sneaker freaker here ;) :hide:

 

WHAT

I JUST read Shoe Dog by Phil Knight. I know those names and history! Sooo fun having a random factoid be relevent.

Found my first shell in the field but is this a dealbreaker with the heel damage? Feel like it's still a kop @ $6 for PRL England (think c&j) burgundy Penny
