Hell yeah it is.
From a business perspective I get cheaping out on materials, because let's be honest--shoes with ****** quality have been selling out for years. I personally have passed on more pairs than I can remember due to poor materials, craftsmanship and shape. But it might not matter other people, hence them continuing to get away with it. If heads keep buying why would they not keep using them?
But charging more for the "real thing" is absurd. I don't expect prices to be the same as they were back in the 90's, but hiking them way up like they're doing is pretty damn shameful, IMO. If any company is able to use quality materials on a limited run of sneakers and NOT overcharge for them, it's Nike. But Nike will Nike--they're gonna bleed every cent they can from you and then make it out like they're doing YOU a favor by offering real leather on a shoe.
All that said, if they remaster some co.jps like the Atmos and come correct with shape/materials.....I'm eating crow like a ************.
