    Some of you negative commentors need to get your head out the 90s this is not the 90s no more shoes are made different nowadays so if you buy them it is because you accept them the way they are and what they were designed for and this is why Nike still sells because they know some people still will like their shoes no matter what

  5. Dante Joe Carter

    I’m guessing Nike is releasing retro kobes so they redeem off of these because they probably won’t sell

    What KDs?! KD 3s are the only decent consistent KD. The v is whack, and so is the IV (other than galaxy and nerf) and vi are ugly.
    Kobe > KD shoes
    These are bball shoes, not get a lot of likes on IG ’cause they look cool. Sarah Sarmiento

    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.

    “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

  19. Skot Hall

    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.
