    I have, they are a newer company that just came out like last month or something like that. I remember that complex and a few other sites featured. But they are a little outragous for me.

    Au contraire mon ami. JB Classics has been around since 2002. In my opinion, they are yet another ugly "let's see how obnoxiously colorful we can make our shoes" brand (see Bape, Greedy Genius, et al.). I haven't seen them in many stores as I am sure they do not sell well at all, especially considering that the price tag is usually around $150.

    They are also quite clunky, rather like skater shoes -- with none of the legititude.

    Some if them are OK, but for the most part I find them guady and overpriced. JB collabed on a vinyl with Ron English (I think?) and it's just as overpriced as their shoes. It's hideous also and going for $800. People are dumb. Like I said though, some of the designs are pretty cool. I remember somewhere (Barneys?) had a sale on them awhile ago for around $90 a pop. If you like them I definitely think they're worth that at that price point. And I don't think they're quite as pandering as BAPE. [​IMG]

    bape make some nice clothing in my opinion, but the shoes undoubtedly are a bit over the top. i've never heard of this jb shoe company, but some of the shoes are awful. when it comes to alternative/retro/skate/whatever trainers, adicolors and nike dunks win.
