    hmph...no respect for the OG '88 colorways. i guess these days you need to have a colorway that looks like a lion having sex with a zebra to sell out quickly...

    The colorway that released today, the Fire Red, is one of the OG colorways. They made TONS of these, moreso than the Toro Red 4s. And some people don't want them because they still had their 06/07 versions still. Also, the "Katrina" 3s are rumored to release next spring.

    Had they slap the "Nike Air" on the back and lower the production number, it will sell out.

    This is the colorway that dropped today.

    so i guess this is my best chance to get a true OG colorway of one of my favorite sneakers of all time, huh. it doesn't bother me that they have the jumpman on the back instead of the "nike air" swoosh. the elephant print stuff looks a bit different than the OG as well, but oh wells

    FK Frees remind me of those water shoes I wanted when I was like 9 but my mom wouldn't buy them for me because they were so stupid looking.

    Mom was always right.

    I'm not athletic enough for that, haha. I'll just knock down the tres points.

    Went to pick up my reserved pair at NTLA. Got there at 10 mins or so before opening. Walked in at 10AM and they told me I had to line up since they were doing fcfs for the KDs. By the time I got in, there were a couple of KDs left so I picked up another pair in case a friend wants it. Otherwise I'll get rid of it next week.

    I just need those Fire Red 5s and 12s and Wolf Grey Flyknit lunar when they're around $100 and I will be set for 2013.

    This thread def opened Pandora's box for me. Got me scouring nice jackets to rock to the gym and running outside now, haha.

    They look much better than I remember. I think I'm going to get some Angelus paint and redo the paint on my 07 pair. I feel like buying another pair of III's would be a waste when I have my old ones lying around.



    I just read that the Yeezy 2's are rumored to release again at a store in NY. That is..according to some random "legit" source via Niketalk. Nike is just printing money right now

    My local Running Room has a few black/white Flyknit trainers on sale, for $90 I think. If anybody is still looking for a pair, it might be worth checking your stores.

    Never heard of running room but that is a great price.

    I am thinking of returning the MC flyknit racers I bought to Niketown.
