  1. I know people hatin on the?2012 J’s…. but i’m a rock the ish outta them YOTD colorway, I’m not a fan of the black and whites. But these right here are on point, atleast in my eyes…..

  2. Those AJ 2012′s look like some kind of crappy ass shoe kit with all the accessories and packaging, they want you to feel like you’re getting alot whe. U buy some junk for $200+….C’mon man stick with retros!

    • AJ 2012, These are strictly for collectors and basketball enthusiast. If they keep releasing retros every month it water downs the product. It takes away from the value. Expand your outlook on shoes. You have to learn to look outside the box.

  3. Hey the Kevin Durants come out on Nike I’d on the 30th and they’re gonna include the year of the dragon option but it’s only on that day…. So I wouldn’t go for the Durants unless u really like that blue color cuz you’ll be able to make your own color way

  5. The new balance colorways are crazy hot. But the Jordan ’12 just look like a mix between the kobe vii’s with a lebron colorway. I know they’re all Nike, but can’t they try a little harder.
