    Looks like something you see on the $20 rack at a sporting goods outlet.

    Drake should outsource his designing to Donda.. Better yet... he can be an investor too.

    I;m just kinda mad that people keep fucking up the 3's and 11's. There is nothing that comes close to the OG colours, so quit watering it down.

    The new school wasn't even born then so it has no significance. As long as they are limited they will be wanted because that is considered "heat"

    But the OG colors are still being whored out on a yearly basis. Can't blame Nike if the crappy colors keeps selling.

    I think I'll be done for the year after the black/red AJ 1. Unless I can find a woven lunar chukka as well

    But are they selling? Take the OG 1's - the only CW's that sold out were the OG colourways. The other bullshit they put out is still sitting on shelves.

    Exactly. It's just like a plan b for a lot of people. "oh I didn't get the fire reds so I'll get these shitty things instead".
    The same reason all the "flight" monstrosity's and jordan branded, non-Jordans (if that makes sense) are all over the place - because people see the jumpman and get all hyped up about it for no reason.

    The shit that Drake is doing is just pointless, the only reason for it is because they are 11's so people think they are dope no matter what ugly ass colourway they put on them.

    To an extend. My coworker wanted to cop some retroes for her son. She will not be getting in line or jump thru hoops for them. She settled for the 6 Rings or whatever they're called in the same colorway since that model didn't sell. Her 8 year old son is happy and they got the $120 or whatever it cost for the shoes from her.

    I actually kinda like the idea of the Kobe 9's, but they lose me after the ankle. Would be better as a low or mid instead of that elongated shoe/sock thing from the 28's. Other than that, any excuse for my flyknit is good with me.

    To RFX's defense, look at the Bel Air 5s or Fear Pack. Horrible colorways that sold out due to hype. As long as they are heat they will sell.

    If they make these Drake Jordans all quick strikes, they will sell.

    Yes they are selling, even if they make it to the sales rack they still sell, even if they make it to the outlets they still sell. It doesn't always have to sell out or be sold at retail price for Nike to make money on it.

    At the end of the day, Nike knows exactly what it is doing. They produce these less than stellar colorways and make less profit but it is on purpose, it makes the release of OG colorways much more hyped and they can release it every half decade or so because of the demand and still sell out.

    There is a reason Jordans is still Nikes biggest money maker.


    In comparison, JB alone made $2b in US sales while the next biggest name is Lebron at $300m, just imagine that gap. And yes, that is mainly due to all the Team Jordans and crappy retroes that JB/Nike puts out.

    I have money on Lebron being a bigger brand than Jordan in 10 years. Just watch.
