Lol. How funny it is that everyone's is stating that these shoes will be sitting on shelves. To the contrary I believe these shoes will actually be laying down on shelves instead.
But honestly I think these shoes are more of an attempt by Nike to give you a well crafted performance based shoe. Many shoes that have been released thru out time have been very nicely stunning in appearance but horrible for b balling. For example, in My Modest Experice I have found it quite unbearable to play basket ball in a pair of foamposites but now I use them as a casual wear type of shoe. Then you have the Jordan 11's that are good for b ball but bad for a person who decides to wear them with baggie jeans (back in the late 90's thru 2005) and not to mention the great MJ still does it lol. So it's fair to say that hey maybe these shoes are a little bit in the (man Nike could have done a better job on appearance) side of thing but will have to wait and see on performance and some color ways that might help the shoe a little bit. Will I be getting a pair you might ask. And my friends as of right now the answer is Absolutley Not but I'm not hating on those who will.
