    They were a QS and pretty limited, there was maybe 50 pairs on ebay. But the real reason they sold out, same outsole as the Yeezy 2. Nike knew exactly what they were doing when they made Kanye use that sole instead of creating a new outsole or re-using a Jordan one.

    The ATC retro from a few years back didn't look so, great, the IIs look better. Def in the "always wanted a pair as a kid" category for me.

    Retail though? You could resell those and double your money. :lol:

    Not sure if your kid would get in trouble for that though?



    Also, Nike x Tisci AF1s

    Yah, I kind of expected better from Tisci, was also hoping it was the Vandals instead of the AF1s. AF1s doesn't really need anymore collabs or special editions. I'm also surprised he didn't use or highlight those shoes in the Givenchy runway show considering it was basketball themed.

    Also, Carmine VIs official release date is May 24.

    Is the Nike x RT confirmed as just the AF1's? Any clothing pieces at all?

    Looks like it's just AF1s for now.

    Thanks. I guess it makes sense not making apparel since that's what he does all day with Givenchy but I thought Nike was trying to get deeper into the fashunz anyway. Oh well, disappointed.

    From what I've read it seems to be a waiting game if you want these limited releases later down the road. At least the black version doesn't seem too far fetched given iD options

    I think I'm going to pull the trigger when the Kobe 9 becomes more ubiquitous then throw away the pairs in my trunk... Even if I only play ball like once a year now lol

    21 Mercer is supposedly doing raffle for the right to buy them. :censored:

    I don't get why the simple colorways are the one that doesn't get the general release. The black and white pair is just about perfect there. That tongue with almost croc-like texture is awesome!
