These had forefoot air and a low pressure heel air unit which was different from the uptempos I think. Hopefully Nike stays true to this set up and doesn't water it down with sucky air bags or no air bags at all. eyes.gif

NO ONE NO ONE NO ONE is more excited than me!
I had the emeralds in 8th grade and the white black in 9th grade. Copped the white blue in college just because I loved them so much. They were also one of the best basketball shoes Nike ever made. Cushioning was excellent and traction was on point. These will be retired and these will be my 2016 beaters. here's hoping they sit so many pairs can be copped on discount / outlets. THANK YOU NIKE!

SWEET PIC BUDDY!!! pimp.gif

I dunno if your as excited as me, lol. Had the Slates as soon as they released back in High School & got SUPER LUCKY finding a near DS pair on eBay way way back in the day (it was my 1st ever eBay purchase). Love love love these!! My only dismay is that Nike may not release other OG colors other than the Emeralds!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE NIKE!!! Release the Royals and the Slates!!

Aaaand just like that, Nike sent out an email to shops over the weekend saying that the Unlimiteds have been cancelled in all colorways. I'll update the thread title when I can get to a desktop. I'm pretty bummed.

Peace,

Must be a shortage of shiny, hard,90 degree creasing, retro pleather or something.

Weak.

Don't know how hard it is for Nike to release original models in original colorways. But attempting to give us half a** retros like the Air Up equipped with that vac-tech garbage, and countless retros of the Flight Lite High and Flight 89's in hundreds of awful colors is what puzzles me. That catalog runs deep enough to retro each popular model at least once in standard og colors. This pathetic way of thinking that every color that comes out has to cater to denim spandex wearing teenager is absurd. Every retro doesn't have to have an$175-200 price tag. I don't know what level Nike is trying to attain, since they're already at the top of the food chain, but to target every audience but the 90's basketball crowd is beyond me. A huge amount of sneakers should have come out before another iteration of the Flight Lite highs. Sad news mean.gifmean.gif

Whoever is running NSW (Gentry still?) can eat a ****!!! This is the WORST decision!! This is a shoe that's never been retro'ed yet and would have a decent amount of people buying on the 1st day, because Nike is lazy with retroing other models from the 90s! What are they gonna replace it with?! More vac-tech garbage and re-retros of a shoe from 2 years ago in horrid colors that look like crap & don't sell?! This is BS! I'm so disappointed & PO'ed right now! I may actually email someone at HQ just to vent!

**** decision by NSW. I was really looking forward to these. One of the top 90's basketball models that I'd really love to get my hands on. Nostalgia took a hard hit today.

Nike really has to take a long look at its thinking on retros. They have been re-releasing the same shoes to a point over & over. I know they did release some new ones recently, but for the most part, they don't delve into the vault of highly sought after sneakers that they haven't given a though of. I can roll off dozens of shoes off the top of my head right now, that they could release that would sell rather well. When we see the same stuff over & over, it's not exciting. What's exciting? These shoes were exciting!

Now, Why would these sell well? Because the shoes from the early 90's, were worn by kids and yound adults, who are now older and have some disposable income to buy the shoes they had when they were younger. You see it with Jordan retros ALL THE TIME. The Air Unlimiteds? I would have bought at retail 1st day of release of the Emerald color. So would have ALOT of older heads. Same people who bought up the Air Command Force retros when the "Billy Hoyle's" released.

Nike should really thing hard about trying new things in regards to the models they want to retro. Shoes like the Flight 90, Solo Flight, Force V, Ballistic Force, Force Mid & High 93, Vis-Zoom Uptempo. I can go on and on. These shoes there would get people excited to purchase. The sneakers they release in the dreck colors, not so much.

Let's use the Flight Lite High. They brought then back, sweet. In HORRID colors! The White Men Can't Jump colorway? Are you kidding?!! Garbage. They only released one OG color and it wasn't the ones Wesley Snipes wore to go with the ACF they they did release.

Nike, I know you have people you pay to watch blogs all day, so I want to say, get creative with the shoes ylj choose to bring back. Not the same rehashed stuff. Would this shoe been a Hugh seller? No. Would you have sold a decent amount of the OG colorway at release? I think so. Do something different for a change. We sneakerheads deserve some different models to choose from. Shoes we haven't seen in years!!! You do that and you may even bring back some of those who said they were done with shoes, just to get that pair they had as a kid/teenager. OK, my rant is over.

Short version: THIS SUCKS NIKE!!!
