    The 9's have grown on me as well, but I ain't budging with the $500 reseller prices for the Masterpieces.....

    They'll probably look like ski boots on a 5'8" dude as well.

    These look like game changers. And this is coming from a sneaker collector who never bought anything past Jordan XI.
    Better pics and article here

    based on everything ive heard about them, they might be the only shoe that is actually WORTH that price tag.

    $225 is like $850 in 1995 money

    Thats the best part!^

    I wear some lound joints but that Jorrdan logo is like some Garanimals kids clothing steez.

    It takes away from the slick silouette, like some bad Polo shirt.

    "IT AIN'T MIKE THO"

    if they actually use italian materials to construct them than they are drastically UNDERpriced shoes, but based on the price tag i'd say that they didn't.

    by the way, most of the "technology" they've used is pretty basic clothing construction methods, they just use not-yet-utilized hipster jargon like "artisanal". and a "jacquard" is just a term for surface patterns, nothing more. when you get your cat's face put on a blanket at wal-mart they use a jacquard to make that happen. and the "weft" stat would suggest that they only do it longitudinally, which would mean you only get your strength side to side and not up and down. that said, if you sift through the jargon you still get a pretty cool shoe.

    No shoe is worth $250 tax included..especially if it's a general release.

    The question becomes what does it do for your average gym baller? If the added benefits are marginal.....I'd rather run with a low-top Kobe model for $150 or whatever.

    The gills are interesting. I've never seen anything like that. Could see it work on a more cohesive design.

    The mocc upper clashes badly with everything else going on. Perplexing is right.

    Unspeakably hideous. I seriously wonder if people at Nike put these out as a lark.

    The soles are the problem - should be thinner and smooth, not slashed. A colour other than white would help, too.

    Again, the soles. On the neon and purple, the white works, but not on these. Otherwise, really like them.

    Seriously.
    They're testing how far they can push fools to buy product.
    But still better than a pair of Crocs.

    I don't know. I'd rather put on some crocs and go Mario Battali than dip my feet in those liquid tennis balls at the end.

    You sound married.

  • Controller_7Controller_7 4,052 Posts
    Indeed.

    And nobody's marrying a grown up who wears those tennis balls. Zing!
