    • yep. ?that’s how my lady justified the 23 hour (coincidence?) plane ride to Australia to visit her folks. ?despite being available, they still go for some serious scrill, but most prices down there are pretty hiked up.

  2. Wouldn’t the Quai 54 blacks be, at least one of, the rarest jordan release(s)? ?Only 54 were made according to DJ Clark Kent. ?UNDFTD 4s, then these make sense to have been included as well.

  3. Where are the yotr 7’s, blk laser 4’s, the 1st?two spizikes (wht/rd/grn & blk/rd/grn),?all the bin 23’s, 25th aniversary 1’s, & las but not least the “BANNED ” 1’s?!?!?!?

  4. I got the yotr 7’s and air force ones, and i also got miro 7’s. they are for sale on ebay if any one wants them?

  5. yotr should not be included on this list for sure…there so much other heat…i give a thumbs up on the list…just needed to add a couple more pairs.?

  6. yeaa so wheres the black laser 4s? why are they putting up shoes that’s close to date. They missed ALOT from years back..

  7. I like how the altitudes first release is now considered rare release.
    They were available in every store I went into in NY AND Niketown AND
    the NBA Store…and they STAYED there for WEEKS cuz hardly anybody
    wanted them. I may be wrong but back then 2 or 3 other colourways
    dropped around the same time and THOSE really sold but the altitude
    wasnt gettin checked like that…and that DMP pack had a serious variant re-spawn. why is that guys IV WHITE tho?!?

  63. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  64. Thank you for sharing excellent informations. Your web-site is very cool. I’m impressed by the details that you have on this website. It reveals how nicely you understand this subject. Bookmarked this website page, will come back for extra articles. You, my friend, ROCK! I found just the info I already searched all over the place and simply could not come across. What an ideal web site.

  65. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  71. Among the side effects which is currently being talked about with Crimson Half truths electricity cocktails is definitely it has the caffeine subject material. There are actually people that believe you’ll find substantial levels of the level of caffeine being contained in a single bottle of this electrical power ingest.

  72. You lost me, friend. I mean, I imagine I get what youre saying. I understand what you are saying, but you just seem to have forgotten about that there are some other men and women inside the world who view this issue for what it actually is and may perhaps not agree with you. You might be turning away a lot of men and women who might have been fans of your web log.

You may possibly be turning away a lot of folks who may have been lovers of your blog site.

  75. However along with its recognition came up the particular speculations with regards to the uncomfortable side effects. The theory is when something is that often great, subsequently there must be anything while in the factor that would bring the alternative effect. This is one of many thoughts the not-so-convinced shoppers intend.
