these shits suck, period. they don't make good shoes anymore since the 90´s. You couldn't pay me to wear these ugly shoes, but the youngsters think they're dope because they weren't around when the iconic shoes were being produced.

“I was with Pacquiao watching him train, prepare for a fight. I’m looking down; I’m looking at his boxing boot. I’m saying man, what if there’s something there? And the timing just kinda matched up.” - Kobe Bryant

His shoes are for women.. You have to have a dainty foot to fit into those super narrow slippers

Nike should better in selecting the right colorway to be used to unveil a shoe. The colorway is awful but I am sure that there will be some good ones to come.

The way it looks and that price. I just like the carbon fiber the rest of the shoe you could have.

Would love to play in 'em, they look wicked light for a high top, but for $225, no way!

I like it. But overpriced. It's basically a sock on carbon fiber.
