    I think the 3M toro bravo 5s shoulda taken the place of the red suede toro bravo 5s. and yes, space jams did deserve the #1 spot

    space jams did deserve top honors. i feel cool now b/c i got the ice blue 10 and neutral grey 11. cool grey 11s don’t deserve top 10. cool grey 4 is the best of the color.

  11. GratefulKicks

    I agree that Space Jams should be #1.

    Olympic VI should be #2 however…released in 2000, that colorway was ahead of it’s time and has proved to be epic.

    Easy to see some of y’all are young, just because a shoe is a retro doesn’t also make it a new colorway… It’s ok, least all trying.
