I wish they'd retro, never cared for the leather ones and the sole change ones eyes.gif
They aren't OG's then laugh.gif

Learn something new everyday! So it must have been the 2nd release I had (colour much closer to the 2013 release).

probably because there is not much demand for this kind of shoe in the US

here in the EU its quite big, street goonz here love this shoe, matching it with the TN 5 panel cap or other Nike TN clothing

especially in France is the TN line very popular, you see it everywhere when you are in Paris

Why on earth would these not be available in the states?

post #44 of 4146
^That

Hyper Blues are one of my top 3 nikes all time and they're unicorn status in the states. The rare times I do come across a pair they're not my size or the bubbles are fogged with a midsole on the verge of crumbling.

I dunno... these were very popular as far as I remember... until Shox released. Once the shox line took off I saw alot of people migrate from Tn and TL Maxs in favor of shox.

laugh.gif I remember alot of shorter people loving shox because they made you so much taller.

mean.gif I think some of you are mistaking when they were retroed from their initial release. These were extremely popular when they first dropped. That's why they retroed them so quickly and they had a ton of colorways..

i could be wrong b/c i couldn't really afford these when they first came out in the early 2000's, but i only remember seeing a few different colorways of these. don't get me wrong, these were popular enough in the states to warrant a retro (and a pretty successful one at that) but every time I've been to Europe in the past 10-12 years (at least 10 times), they've had at least 5 DIFFERENT colorways sitting on the shelves of every footlocker I'd step into. and usually another 3 colorways sitting on the sales racks. I'm talking, literally, hundreds of colorways amassed steadily over 10+ years.

i may be off with my dates, but i was under the impression that in the US we had the initial drop back in 2000 or whatever, and then another pretty big drop in 2007-2008, and then that godawful hybrid push in 2009 (each mildly successful)

Is possible, a lot of cws had small reflective stripes on the toebox and tongue.

One of the current cws has a 3M heel, mudguard and the curvy lines going upwards from it.

That's true, just look at the current stock on the FL EU site
http://www.footlocker.eu/nl/en/s/tuned.aspx
Most of them are available in the shops, some are webonly and some are store only. Right now you will find app. 10 cws in the shops I think, with app. every 8 weeks new models arriving. Unfortunately not all of them are interesting, a lot of rubbish. We need more classic cws with fading color uppers....

They came out in 1998. You're talking about when they were retroed. They weren't as well received when they retroed, because they had just released and people had moved on to other Nike running kicks. Retroing sneakers wasn't as popular back then as it is now, at least here in the states. I remember I got a pair of retro neon 95's on sale back in 99 cheap. We looked back on certain sneakers later as classics, compared to what Nike was releasing in the 21st century. Before you just moved on to the next release, because Nike was releasing so much hot stuff in the 90's.

laugh.gif Magic you're saying what I held back on saying.

Had to rep you twice king.

When these INITIALLY dropped in the late 90's?

You literally couldn't go ANYWHERE without seeing them.

I mean no disrespect to my Euro heads (because it's not your fault) but i'm really sick and tired of all these Euro only releases.

Yeah, Nike flooded the block with these like it was the crack era in the 80's. I got tired of seeing them and stopped wearing mine. Plus they had a bunch of womens colorways, so they had them too. I kept wondering when they were going to stop with the colorways. Then they started doing the leather. I think that's why Nike thought they could release them again so soon. They had such a lukewarm reception that Nike seems cold on these here.

I would probably get a pair for nostalgia purposes, but it would have to be an OG colorway. The blue and the orange were always the best colorways IMO.

I always thought these should have been given a number. The 98 Plus or somethign. It's so much easier to remember, yo I want the 95's, 97's, 90's. Nike released a bunch of running kicks in 98 and 99 with similar make ups and designs and the names had so little differentiation they were practically indistinguishable. What's a Air Max IV? I know what a I is. That's one of the reasons a lot of them haven't been retroed.

I'm still waiting for these



Still have mine, but the sole came off years ago

In Europe, we have between 25 and 35 cws per year. I know Australia have some of them too, plus between 5 and 10 Foot Locker Australia exclusive cws.

 

In total, since 1998 i have enumerated 427 AM+ (43 retroed), this leaves us with 384 unique cws.

 

Every model on the web store is available at French (Europe?) Foot Locker shop, but i've seen some models only available at the Foot Locker shop these past years.
