These were a big deal back in the day.
If you guys remember, the release version of the 1999 columbia 4s (complete with leather wings and perforated mesh) were not exactly met with open arms.
Coupled with the introduction of the Jumpman on a **gasp** leather heel-tab and you had a fairly disappointed crowd after the first run of retro+ 4s released.
Keep in mind this was before the 4s were retroed ad nauseam, so this unreleased colorway made quite a splash when pictures leaked online.
With about 16 years of hindsight to help aid it's cause, you could argue that the actual release version of the columbia/legend blue 4s is the cleaner of the two.
However, these samples would be a perfect colorway to release in today's market and serve as a subtle nod to those who remember.
that color scheme is overrated imo. just like "pantone" colorways.
yep. all the sets they do like that are very uninspired. they just choose a base and throw some color on the lining and sole. *yawn*
you mean like the Olympic rainbow 6s with the toe joint... and the miro 7s? those were such trash. if they released now though these new cats would eat them up . those will ALWAYS be an easy pass for me
wow never knew those existed. that is a new low lol. not a fan of any pairs at first sight
true, there's a variety of colors but it's more or less the same scheme. choose a base, make lining and sole the same color. they must put a whole 5 minutes into these concepts
