Air Jordan XX8 aka 2013, new "Proplate Zoom" Technology OFFICIAL THREAD. - Page 3

post #61 of 6682
Interesting, maybe JB may take some effort with what is supposed to be their flagship model after all. But apart from PE colourways for the first half of allstar, is anyone actually going to wear these in the NBA?

Maybe if Kanye endorsed these, all the kiddies would like 'em? Or if they dropped in some glow in the dark, hot pink colorway??

If these sent tweets and payed my bills Once a month I still wouldn't be impressed. Why won't they just focus on the design, and materials and not the gimmicks? This era in shoes will be forever known as the gimmick era.

Nothing after the 14's really even counts for me. The 16's, 20's and 23's were tolerable, but to me the Jordan line stopped at 14.

We buy shoes because they look great or they're a great deal (like the 2012s that are on sale right now) and for most of us, their actual performance is just a nice perk. I'm hoping for the best with the 2013s (the 2011s are still one of my favorite shoes to wear), but JB has been generally pretty disappointing with this line.

I'll pick up whatever my favorite colorway is at the outlets when they get there, just like I did with the 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012 models. I don't understand how you guys can hate the shoe so much when there isn't even a real picture yet.

Yeah but I think JB is looking more toward creating performance shoes now. I heard the 2012 was a good shoe to ball in

BTW, glad to see your avy finally got fixed smiley: laughsmiley: tongue

Nike should've created a new line for this strategy, or put it in a newer players shoe.
I mean seriously why ruin JB?

But then again I could care less since I only cop Jordans 1-13 and plenty of people are this way. (not to say I only cop Jordans)

Couldn't have said it better myself!! I've liked EVERY Sig Jordan that has come out, even the XV. Can't wait to see these!!

Mod or not / Kanye or not 

They will be absolute crap. My local Nike Factory has had the same pair of 2012 10.5 for months at $150. They are still there after after making every percentage drop Nike has had.

Sorry but they have become a big marketing tool. I see no functionality with all that crap. They have made they shoe into a pure on court shoe. I am not about to drag all that crap to the court. Im not switching booties either.

The 09's made it to Marshall's and I still passed. 

SMH at JB producing those monstrosities.

roll.gif what kind of a random *** statistic is 46%...

I enjoyed the 2012 very much, the shoe is VERY well made for basketball, only when they hit outlets were they really worth it though. 180 was too much!

2011s had amazing quality, really did feel exceptionally better than kd3s I also had that year. I actually got to switch from the zoom insole to the max air insole mid-game and it worked wonders.

Hopefully they will realize that performance isn't the only thing they should care about this time. Jordans used to be a beautiful mixture between performance and aesthetics. 2011s were good. 2012s were not. Hopefully 2013s look & perform great like how Jordan sig lines should be.

Don't sleep on any jordan....  in 10 years the 2012's will be sought out and be worth loot.  I buy at least one pair of each even if I don't really like them.  For some reason as time goes by I start to love them.

 

I hated the 10's when they came out, now I love them...  I hated the 16's but I now I'm slapping myself in the face because I didn't buy them.  I remember when 16s stayed on the shelf for months..... 

 

Don't sleep, you will regret it later.
