Yeah, I certainly don't blame anybody for getting on board with these. In fact, I applaud them for making smarter choices with their sneaker dollar.
And, I totally get that if Nike wants to get some momentum behind this, they have to push out a classic. But, I hate when a single colorway of a model, which is a great model, captures people and then we have to hear them pretend to love that shoe itself.
We see it over and over.
"I love the Shady Burst" (owns no other pairs of Bursts)
"I love the Supreme Blazers" (owns no other pairs of Blazers)
"I love the Entourage AF1" (owns no other AF1s)
When news that the pruple highs were going to drop hit, I saw all these people who don't give a damn about Forces coming out the woodwork to praise the shoe. Most of those people were either beasting, or showing out that they know what that shoe is so that they can look "with it" to the older heads they are trying to impress.
At the end of the day, I have no problem with a shoe like this getting attention for the right reasons, but some of the attention spike the AF1 got with the drop of the purps is attention for the wrong reasons.
