    i loved those max uptempos, i had the blue and white ones with the big air spelled out on the side :lol:

    in 88 i think it was, there were these air crosstrainers of some type can't remember the name but they were white with pink or infrared that i wanted so bad i literally thought of them every day and this one kid always had the freshest kicks including those

    i imagined how comfy they were all the time :eek:

    Jet, I think you're taking about these:

    That was Pippens joints for the 96 Olympics. I think they were like $130 or 140. The one I posted was the shoe he wore the following season.

    I had to cop them when they got retroed because I never got them in the 5th grade.

    Those were another game changer. Uptempos Fall of 96 and the foams were spring of 97 when Jason Terry helped AZ win the national title.

    Fond memories of the More Uptempos.. Shoes I wore when I first grabbed the rim. Oh wow.. memory lane.

    I wish I picked these up when they were on heavy discount. Favorite Pennys of all time. Prices are outrageous nowadays. By the look of how they kept the Penny line going until today, I think they will do the same with Kobe and Lebron. Man, I don't even know how this sector will look like in 20 years with all of the re-retros and new lines for up and coming stars.

    [​IMG]

    I picked up a tech hoody and the AW cuffed sweats. I took a bit of a gamble with sizes but should be coming in the next few days so we'll see

    Jet, I think you're talking about these trainers right?

    [​IMG]

    These came out in '89... Had both the infrared and the Neon Green joints.
