no, you're not.  i can't stand the cheap looking hyperfuse.  i will not be buying the IX if they are hyperfuse.  so long lebron line. smiley: mad

flywire and hyperfuse, that's all we will see in the future with nike.  cheap looking garbage.  i'm already over both of them.  i miss real leather shoes of the 80's and 90's. 

Yup. Same here. Lighter shoes, I understand the need for them, but really? Hyperfuse? It's like they cut out a bunch of random shaped pieces on the upper of the shoe and then hit you with a price increase because of the "technology" of it. Give me my damn leather that will be durable and last. How can you charge $165 for a shoe with less materials? smiley: laughsmiley: laughsmiley: indifferent

Unless the design is amazing, I will not be participating in the debacle. Look at the Jordan 2011 and the Kobe line. They don't use hyperfuse and are still very light and amazing for hooping in.

I like hyperfuse just not the way they were incorporated on the V3. How accurate do these tech leaks tend to be?

If it has the Yeezy ankle cut then cool... I just hope it's a different pattern on the fuse. That vent look is kinda played out now.
post #35 of 33231
I dont see how the price is 165 when its basically the same setup as V3 and youre not using leather?  Also its a "ballin" shoe how you gotta justify that price

Your right mr friendly NIKE MUST JUSTIFY ITS MEANS if they intend to charge 165 for a shoe with no leather ; and Nike please don't give us that inflation BULL!!!smiley: ohwellsmiley: ohwellsmiley: ohwell

More and more money for less and less shoe. Meanwhile, Lebron cherry picks the best colorways and ensures they don't release.

Is it any wonder i haven't bought anything from JB or Nike, new or Retro,. in a little over a year.
post #38 of 33231
performance monsters probably

I like the LBJ 8's but it seems this line has fallen off a little bit to me

Hope the IX's change this and I hope lebron quits bein a %%*#! about the colorways that see daylight
post #39 of 33231
So basically.. the reason why we have the the 3 versions of the LeBron 8 is to move us toward the technology that will be represented in the 9... like they're trying to ween us off of leather shoes.. (if it is only 1 version and based on description given)..  smiley: indifferent

Heres the thing, 90% of the NTers that buy lebrons, buy them for the looks.
these are basketball shoes. want a casual shoe? go elsewhere.
i like where the lebron line is heading.  the VII was sick aesthetically, but the VII ps was able to stay looking good and add great performance. VIII is great is both aspects too. cant wait to try the V3 for basketball.
post #41 of 33231
$165 or not, all you people will still buy these.
post #42 of 33231
People will buy . Just release a hypebeast color and the rest is history. It's too easy for Nike nowadays

if you're talking to me, i didn't say i wanted a casual shoe.  i just want a great performance basketball shoe that doesn't look like cheap garbage...like the lebron VIII, version 1.  really, it's simple. smiley: tired

...and if all versions of the IX are that hyperfuse junk, i will go elsewhere.  no big deal.

Hopefully the fuse looks like the Hyperfuse because that was a good looking shoe IMO instead of the V3, which didn't look good

That will happen to a lot more shoes, NIke and the other companies have to fight increasing costs.

Yeah but the stuff they are using on shoes is also cheaper to get a produce.

Flywire- Is basically strategically placed cloth thread on shoes
Hyperfuse- Is basically strategically placed mesh cutouts

Its okay that they are going to Flywire and Hyperfuse technology but prices of 150-170 are OD for this stuff.  Retail price of the Lebron 8 V3 and Lebron 9  should be around 140 for what they are giving us.

or a zoom sole... either or is fine with me... not feeling them combined together... im sure its more function than form for the client (LeBron) anyway.

SMH at $5 increase... but like someone stated earlier everything is going up! 30t6p3b

No, hyperfuse just looks cheap to me.  they prolly shooting for lightness though.  i don't pass judgements based on silhouettes, so i'll to wait to see the pix
post #54 of 33231
These threads go the same way. It doesnt even matter how they look after the V1s last year, which are some of the worst looking shoes ever. But they get a backing and a following on one limited colorway and its instant success for them. I hope the designers dont take too much time working on these. Whether its lebron or kobes sig shoes, ANYTHING SELLS.

As bad as the Lebron's are you have to admit, Wally that this years Kobes are cheap looking garbage.  If LA gear came out with the kobes in 1990 people wouldn't have touched them.  They look like a children's novelty shoe. 
post #56 of 33231
Not mad. maybe jealous or envious. I can just look past a lot of stuff and see it for what it truly is.
Make everything else around the Lebron and Kobe lines so MEDIOCRE, that these two shoes with decent technology stand out above the rest. You got a kobe shoe with a midsole foundation of that of a 1997-1998 zoom air shoe. Yet has the hype of something other worldly.

A couple years back, a bball shoe with dual zoom would be no big deal. It would be the norm. But now that they've rationed out the usage of zoom and even more so with dual zoom, what once WASN'T rare a decade ago, is seen today as unique and top of the line.

The same can be said about air180 and zoom air in the V3 lebron 8 setup. For today's shoe, what an awesome moment.. Realizing it had been done similarly a decade back and Nike has been holding out to make this current appearance seem that much better, really gives us all a true reality check.

I just say no matter how they look as long as they are 1/2 step ahead of other Nike shoes, people will buy them up. Maybe that's why I don't have the optimism some of yall have. I'll let you all like what you like. I realize its a losing battle on my end but just had to get my 2 cents in there.

I feel you

Nike really hasnt TRIED anything truly innovative cushioning wise since Shox.  

The setup in the V3 and Lebron 9 is supposed to be different than the standard Zoom/Air max setup.....Supposedly its like half of the 360 BB air bag plus forefoot Zoom it also has a CF midfoot shank.

I dont know how many shoes had the shank too?


But I feel you Nike cornered the market in 1990s and now they can pretty much bask in it until another company challenges them.

^I think adidas pure motion technology has taken the shoe competition by storm. But almost all the cushioning systems pale in comparison to zoom air
post #59 of 33231
when pics come out, we can all bring judgment.

I hope they official, since the 7s they've been on a winning streak.

that's the problem it's adidas, i have never or never will own a pair of adidas.  i just can't do it.  the closest i've ever came to owning a pair of adidas was running shoes, climacools i think, but in the end i just couldn't pull the trigger.  i mean it's adidas smiley: laugh
