1st thing who the hell wears new balance and secondly no popular athlete I know of is sponsored by them so their quality has to be great for ppl to buy them and the supply & demand for them isn't the same as Nike, JB, or even Reebok in that matte. It's McDonald's is to Wendy's. Wendy's has better food for a lower price but just because of the name they'll go to McDonalds!!! smiley: pimp

I have never in my life bought a pair of New Balance and I've been buying sneaks since ,96. I remember around that time they had this campaign "new balance: endorsed by no one". That's a really lame campaign. Their quality might be top notch (I have no idea, they've never convinced me to buy a pair), but their marketing is crap. Add that to some of the most unappealing designs ever, and you don't have a winner

Just read white/black Questions are coming out later this year. No date yet.

NB caters to a whole different consumer. They aren't trying to be Nike or Rbk nor want to be. I do appreciate their manufacturing process though since 25% are made right here. That's great

I'm not gonna go too much into politics and economics, but $26 price increase should be expected.

Somebody said it earlier in this thread...JOrdan III and IV used to be $99.

The limited part, I can't defend, except that if they sat on shelves last time, then Reebok probably wants to avoid that this time.

Matter fact...hol up....You guys are absolutely right. $125 is WAAAAYYY too much for these. You guys should DEFINITELY boycott and not copp. That'll show Reebok not to increase prices!




...and then I'll grab as many as I need. El Perfecto!


I didn't want to say this but lets be honest, the reason Jordans can come out and be 60 over its original retail is because the man has 6 rings, he's a living legend. So people idolize anything Jordan. He made it so he himself is worth that money.
I'm not saying im a JB fanatic, hell I only have 2 pairs of JB's myself. I usually go with more modern models of shoes, i.e. Kobes, Lebrons, KDs, trainers.

But Iverson was hot for awhile, got to the finals, but never won. His shoe was hot yes but he left on a sour note, he's still playing and you can still find this shoe scattered in Outlets or no name stores. for under 50$   and on top of re releasing in 2010/11 yet there never being hype for them sort of like there is now. ..

I didn't have steady income like I do now before to re cop this but now that I do have the money. 125 for a 16 year old shoe, that i can probably find in an outlet if I looked hard enough, and these are pretty much going to sit anyway because everyone is in Nike hypnosis (I sort of am myself)
Unacceptable.    Come out with something under 100 to generate buzz for Reebok.   the zigzag tech is some what loved (atleast where I am) but thats new tech and for a whole other dynamic of people. (aka not basketball fans).
If the beast KD is can have a very Hot shoe for under 99 dollars so can Iverson who's not even in the league. right now.

This is the dumbest comment ever!!! 1st Nike is charging $160 for Sir Charles and he's won no rings so %$+@. Allen Iverson was in the early '00s what Jordan was in the 90s. He singlehandedly revolutionized the sport of basketball to what it is today and when he was playing he was the face of the NBA not Shaq, Kobe, Vince, Tracy, or even Jordan for that matter. No one was wearing sleeves, heavily tatted, and cornrowed(except Spreewell) til AI the trendsetter then and still now from Chris Paul and Derrick Rose to Melo and D-Wade everyone has took something from Iverson. $125 now in days is a steal for a retro as covenant as the Questions so stop female doggin over the price tag. P.S. Not tryin to be an A-Hole but AI is a role model yeah his off court drama isnt pretty but what that man did on the court was INCREDIBLE. One of the few athletes who has a love for the game.
post #220 of 7841
Listen I'm not dissing AI for his on the court ball skills...paying that much for barkley is ridic also...I think paying anything over 100 for old tech is ridic but maybe that's just still the cheap old me who didn't have money like that back in the day... I'm just saying if these have sat several times and reebok knows this..why not release them at a lower price generate that buzz and hopefully guranteed sell out with the qs...then when the other colors drop raise that price... The people want Jordans/ kobes/ brons/kds Only a select fan base as I mentioned earlier are yearning for these.. the pearlized toe the dropped R all that are nice little touches compared to some of the og and re releases. Just saying I think on the fence people would cop and make this shoe more popular (which would hopefully generate more buzz for all of his shoes to come out again be wider spread...new colors...) I know us true fans of the shoe are saying....(yes I hope the hypers don't buy easy cop for me) but all in all we want these to do well so we can get more releases...

this.  ive found that most people try to hate on NB simply because they, for the most part, only make runners.  also the people who hate on them typically ONLY buy bball shoes resulting in them having no clue what they are talking about outside of that realm of footwear.   the truth is whether its nike, jb, adidas, NB, asics or any other brand, most of these sole lickers wouldnt even be in this thread if this wasnt a "basketball" shoe...

Red tips = Limited

Blue Tips = wider spread

Black Tips = mass produced

All black = possible limited launch

After that expect a lot of team inspired models.

This makes no sense. So now I can expect to see these on Ebay for crazy reseller prices if I can't get a pairsmiley: mad.

I guess its on to the Blue Tips if all else failssmiley: ohwell.

Nike setting standards for other brands now. 30t6p3b But who knows what "limited" means in terms of Reebok's release. I think everybody has a bad taste in their mouth and associate chaos/hype/foolishness with any release Nike dubs "limited", might just mean they're will only be 2 re-stocks etc. (wishful thinking)

Of course the best colorways are "limited" 30t6p3b.gif

I just got rid of my red suede toes because I would never wear them.

I wear the pearl blue toes all the time and are one of my favorite sneakers.

I will probably pick up another pair of blue ones. Hope they are truly 'pearl' and not the dull navy leather that got retroed a few years back.

I see Reebok is gaining some momentum.
post #234 of 7841
R23 Accounts are the only stores getting the red tips. There is a rumored 5000 production run but cant confirm that. Regardless the Blues will be out a few weeks after that. You honestly cant go wrong with either.

T we go way back, and you didn't let me know you were letting go of those Questions??

If I can't get the red toes for retail,  I'm not copping any of them.

Sick of the whole "limited" thing.

This 30t6p3b.gif But hopefully the red tip pair goes under the radar so that the people that really want them can get them first.

Loved the low top with the grey toe. One of the most comfortable shoes ever
