Models: 6

All-Star game and fresh marketability pushed Penny Hardaway?s sneaker series to another level. Following four Air Penny models and the infamous Foamposite One, Anfernee?s line received an extension with this year?s post-retirement Penny V.

      @Koach_CartER?I don’t think they are the ugliest but they certainly look like 2 loose vaginas that you stick your feet in.

      @Koach_CartER I gotta agree with you 15’s one of th ugliest Jordan’s ever made n suck to play in to I remember when these came out I was in freshman yr of collage and it came with a headband n little baby towel I only know cuz my friend copp but I didn’t I thought they look like boots that the con Edison guys use where in the sewers

    Some one please articulate bad quality retro detail. ?All mine retros are straight.had a little crease but im wearing em dgaf bout that.

    • ianthony345

      @GyanShieldsdad?People say releases now are cheaper and have lower quality than the older releases. I mean they still make them good but they use cheaper and lesser materials then they used to. like on shoes with metal lace tips they dont do it anymore, just plastic. and glue problems

      • GyanShieldsdad

        @ianthony345?Okay, I understand your point of veiw. And I would agree with the tips and the glue but the leather…i’m not sure its still leather it may be thinner but I couldn’t say by how much. I would just say the the “crease threshold” has been surpassed with some of the leather. And maybe it should be thicker but its still leather. ?As for the glue I would say that the craftmen. im sure they can easy up on the glue but we don’t really know the process. They ned to makes more sneakers in the USA. I think that why im slowly moving back to newbalance. I might pay 150 but im never dissappointed with the quality.

    I think Jordan 15 all the way too 19 were ugly as hell 20 to 23 I liked a lot n of course 3 to 14 n some 2’s n 1’s to me r basically like dunks n there so many color ways no way to have every 1 that drops there r so many of them they should just release regular 1’s not this 1 phat or alpha crap ajko r only ok cus most go the time materials use for that r good quality

    No low balling allowed on trades because I know what I own and all about it’s value ect. so don’t low ball on any trade offers or act like you don’t know about it. I’m not selling anything by the way I rather trade not much of a seller anymore due to many reasons, I’m only hosting the idea of trading which in turn means, I’m in no rush and some shoes won’t be traded at all everything is in my size this is just to see if there’s any good deals that grab my attention that are fair and of equal value I would be down for and nothing further so please don’t ask me “How much? – or – How much if you were to sell anything? – or – Do you ship 1st or the same time?” on your 1st inbox they are “Not For Sale” so no cash offers. Please be able to back what you offer with tagged pics with a shown Current Date/E-Mail User Name of everything stated on your end, Send pics right out the gate if you would like to that would speed thing’s up a lot deal or no deal to my e-mail below, Thanks ?
