No. You're not that smart.

This is what a range looks like. Ex. 45-55. It reads between 45 to 55.
This is what a percent looks like. Ex. 45/55. It reads 45 divided by 55.
Notice the difference? Now tell me, which one did you put?

In all honesty I was just breaking your balls, because what you wrote previously made no sense whatsoever. And I'll just leave it at that.

I still don't think you guys get it laugh.gif

The same way someone would say that they're 50/50 on something, as in they're torn; he's 45/55.

Why he didn't just say 50/50 and call it a day? I don't know.

post #5683 of 8362
Liberty of London x Nike Air Force 1 Downtown Low

Nice pick up, I think they're dope. Where'd you cop?

I just can't get with the Downtown silhouette though. If they did a regular Air Force 1 just like that, I'd be all in.

Yeah..I didn't like the silhouette at first either...But I got BHMs...and they were a lot better than I thought....

I thought the BHM colorway was clean on those too. I might give a pair a shot and see how I feel about them in person.

Recently?

 

:lol

 

Nike has been effin' up Forces for a minute now, although I'll admit they HAVE gotten marginally better over the past couple of years.  But then you compare the best from the past couple of years to 7 or 8 years ago and reality comes crashing down on you again.  :lol

Since the 25th anniversary it's been ALL down hill
Honestly the last GOOD year was probably 04
I know some people who think the last good year was the year of patent laugh.gif I think that was like 05 or 06 that was the year of the World Cup forces and pixies and frankenstiens and all that

EDIT: I WANNA include the 1world year but couple things were unattainable so **** that year laugh.gif
post #5690 of 8362
^ Yeah, now that I think about it more, you might be right about '04 being the last solid year. What year did the Portlands, Waterpoof lows and the butter soft all leather brown joints (desert clays I think?) come out?

I just remember there being this really solid run of attainable AF1s and then it all went to crap. This was back when hazardshoes.com was the spot to grab overseas joints.

And laugh.gif at the patent years. I'll admit I was caught up....had the first Halloweens, both Easters, the white/graphite gray Asia exclusive joints, Cartoons, Sheeds, etc. To this day I still remember plotting where to grab the Halloweens with the homie illphil via AIM on the Sidekick. laugh.gif

Some of those are dope to this day, but looking back at it, I looked foolish as hell with some Easter egg shoes on. laugh.gif

Still some decent releases in '04. the least really good year was probably '02. '04 was like when the star player who has been falling off over the previous few years due to age comes out of the blue and has a borderline all star season again. The patent flurry weren't horrible releases - I can get behind the novelty, and the design execution was pretty good, even if the shape had fallen to hell already. Halloweens, Easters, St. Pattys were all cool enough. But the ship on simple, classic CWs, with high quality materials and proper OG shape had already sailed.

I have more pairs from almost any random year in the 90s than I do combined from '05 - present.
post #5693 of 8362
I'm glad most of y'all think the releases has been trashed...I love getting forces for 40$....I will always like forces...I have been wearing them since 93'....Gloves are trashed...but I'm definitely getting the Penny's....N7 Forces this Saturday are the next purchases...One thing I can't do..is buy used forces...I need that fresh feel....my Safaris and Liberty London should be here this weekend.....
post #5694 of 8362

I certainly like picking up AF1's for a steal price like that, but the Glove and this Penny soon to be releasing is very disappointing.  I only really got back into wearing AF1's, so I have missed quite a few releases.

 

@cidetrax75

Nice pickup, love the color scheme on them, I am sure a lot of Knicks fans would love to have a pair.

I went through the patent phase and man mean.gif I did look doofy as hell with a WHOLE FIT (Polo Bear T-shirt included) matching the second Easters. I even had a Lavender Members Only jacket to top it off. tired.gif I remember the exact moment I realized I was doing the most and sold the Easter's the next week.

I had the Patent low Sheeds with the blue toe and the patent black and white Sheed highs. I even have a pic of my daughter when she was a baby trying to walk around in them. laugh.gif

Looking back at all of the dope pairs that I no longer have, simply because I thought that NIKE would never stop dropping dope Air Force 1's kind of makes me sick. sick.gif A quick R.I.P to some fallen soldiers. frown.gif

Brown and White Escape lows
Black and White Escape lows
Italian Lux Highs (Black)
Maple and Birch lows (dat leather mean.gif )
Inside out Lazer Mids (nature of communication)

And there was a dark cinder pair with wool on them and they came with some burlap looking laces and a pair of silky flat laces. I can't remember the name of them, but they were dope too.

Wishing I still had them all.

Damn.

Yeah the novelty of the patents were good, as was the design.  I guess my tastes just changed because I wouldn't be caught dead wearing some of the pairs I used to rock on the regular back then.  The only patent pair that I really regret selling is the Cartoon joints--those were executed impeccably, IMO.

:lol I know all about the outfits matching the Easters.  Had a few different basic, solid color Polo joints that matched the colors perfectly.  Hey, my then girlfriend (now wife) dug them so I guess something positive came out of those Easters.  

 

And please don't get me started on those fallen pairs.  The pair I regret selling the most are the Hong Kongs.  I didn't think much of it at the time, but a year or so later I knew I had made a terrible mistake.  :{:{
