NIKE AIR MAG 2015 - Page 3

post #61 of 8372
Perfect.

That gives everyone plenty of time to figure out how to rock these casually.

Shoes like the Mag and Yeezy aren't made for "normal" people.

 

They're made for the secondary market, people with the diposable income to pay thousands of dollars, and athletes/celebs. It's made for the elites and creates a bigger divide between the haves and have nots.

 

When I hear news like this, I don't even think about how I'm going to cop anymore. Nike structures these releases in a way that make it nearly impossible to cop for retail. It's like a suicide mission, there is no purpose.

This. Not sure why any of you are excited unless you're the type that can afford 5K shoes or just like the thrill of the hunt only to strike out.

 

This "game" ain't made for us anymore.

“ARE WE GOING TO SEE POWER LACES IN 2015? TO THAT, I SAY YES.”

-Tinker Hatfield

Everyone is just assuming this means Air Mags but it's all too careful. This wasn't a random comment: Nike made a calculated move to bring Tinker out on All Star weekend to say this. I mean, that's not how you talk in conversation; that's a prepared statement. Both the question and the answer carefully avoid ever mentioning the Air Mag which is no accident. It would be an incredible slap in the face to the original auction winners to release a better version of their shoe after repeatedly and explicitly saying the shoe would never rerelease. The signs point towards power laces on a different and/or new shoe.

Either way, that's how you start the hype train.

All this. I honestly believe this release will be so ugly (fights, robberies, deaths) that Nike may actually change the way they do business. I expect nothing but the worse but I hope this is the shoe that starts the sneaker crash, like the video game crash of the 80s.

Yeezy's were made to be an affordable alternative to high end sneakers, but nike is too old fashioned.

 

Simple supply and demand, Nike would rather brand their signature athletes, then invest in a yeezy line.

 

Air MAGs are a different story, that's an Iconic movie and there are some real die hard BTTF fans.

 

People who don't even like sneakers will buy MAG's because of what the shoe represents to them.

Also, I could see them doing another random drop of these like the Yeezys:{

10/21/15 would be a Wednesday
post #69 of 8372
I would imagine Nike doing a line of power lacing shoes. The Air Mags will just be the must have (and most limited) of them all.

The same as the last drop if im not mistaken.
post #71 of 8372
ebay auction again. at least for the power lacing version. no way nike tries to release these in store, and probably not on their site either. remember the last air mags were a tremendous tax break for them. i see these new ones being nothing more than that for nike as well
post #72 of 8372
I don't think these will be auctioned off like the 2011's. If anything Nike will charge rape price like $350-$400 and part of the proceeds will go to Parkinson's research but there are way too many people waiting on this shoe for it to be a "rich and famous" exclusive like last time.
post #73 of 8372
tinker said extremely limited no? makes sense for them to auction them off again. far less of a headache for nike than if they have to worry about bad PR from a crashed website or riots outside brick and mortar stores. these were extremely sought after and went for thousands of dollars, but there was no headache involved in the release for nike

He did mention extremely limited... mean.gif
post #75 of 8372
In other words it'll be a repeat of 2011. Low availability and high resell for those not lucky enough to get them.
post #76 of 8372

meh I don't even care if they release them to two penguins in antarctica

 

 

I think it's sick that Nike is making a shoe with power laces, air mag or not, in 2015.

post #77 of 8372
So Nike will be responsible for our kids not knowing how to tie their shoes? Cool

At the auction/event for the 2011 Air Mags Tinker said we will again in 2015 this time with Power Laces

everybody probably thought he said it just cause of the date of the movie when actuality they was planning it all along

If they release two versions I would love to have both. Both lacing ones for special occasions and lower tier ones for casual use

I'll treat these like the Yeezy. It's like hitting the lottery. Getting a pair is like winning a few Gs. If not so be it. I'm no reseller but I'm not keeping any shoe I get at retail that could be sold for thousands.
