come on man you even said tinker was cut off so how can you say that he talked about printing? You are assuming and guessing don't pop your shoulder reaching like this ALMOST POSITIVE? Lol
post #122 of 6489

I'm confused as to where he was going with all the 3d printing reaching lol. Like what would that even matter or be a part of on the shoe? I'm sure they already 3d print mock ups of certain things. Not sure how that would be some super futuristic thing to make synthetic parts with a different machine

Maybe "almost positive" was reaching, I agree on that. Let me put it this way, I am expecting something pretty groundbreaking for this sneaker, especially since they haven't done S*** different on the last two, and I think that 3D printing might be just that. We'll see what happens!

I'm not trying to "reach," I'm just hoping that we get something new/cutting-edge with these. I've never been more disappointed with a pair of J's than I was with the XXX's. No innovation in those whatsoever.

As we know, the 29 was the shoe for 1.5 years, a departure from the traditional 1 year run.  Now we get the 30 for ~6 mo before the 31.  I think what probably happened is the 30 design period overlapped with the 31.  Either the 29 was such a great shoe and selling so well that Nike didn't want to interrupt it, or perhaps there were production issues, etc that pushed the 30 back (which would make sense why it released with some comfort issues.. not enough time to properly wear test the final design maybe).  I have to think initially the 30 was pegged for a release 1 year later, not 1.5. The 31 is going to release on schedule, making it seem like the 30 is a bastard child, when in fact it was just delayed on, or not on purpose. Makes sense to release a halo shoe before the start of a season, not dead in the middle, so the 31 is just sticking with the original schedule.  But many feel the 29 is the best performing shoe ever, so I can understand why they didn't "innovate" anything new with the 30.  Obviously the reception has probably told them that was a bad decision.

I'm a huge fan of the XXX for the casual wear/comfort. I am sad to see the XXX be done with soon, but excited to see what the XXX1 will bring.

Well talking more about the spirit than the material...I just want them to put a shoe out that makes want to go and buy it because LOOKS and PERFORMS great. To me it seems like they only care about performance these which is not bad at all but I am trying to say is that they don't have sacrifice look to do so...Idk

Wouldn't say they sacrifice the looks on purpose but the design direction is just not the same. Air Jordans made the first leap into another level with the 9s which only took over the inner bootie and raised midsole section but otherwise was looking completely different to anything released before.
Technologywise the only new thing was to have the fast lacing system with the round laces.
Then since the 16 JB often had their flagship having some lace cover design until the 20s.
Air jordans became significantly lighter since the 2010/2011 and less bulky in shape too.
When we look back, 18 - 22 were very bulky in design.
What i think the XXX1 need is an upper design with more interesting details.
Since the xx8 the upper is very plain. Not much details but just some crazy prints or weaving.
When we look at the Kyries, Lebrons or Kobes we know that Nike can do more with the flyknit, armorposite etc.
post #133 of 6489
I think 3d printing is too expensive still.. no mass produced shoe uses it yet. UA made a shoe with partially printed mid sole but it was very limited and really expensive. Agreed with the fact that they could make the upper more interesting though. KD9 is an example of how to give wovens some character. But looking at summer releases (kd9, hyperdunk elite) it's obvious that wovens are in for Nike, and ultimately they are somewhat limited in terms of looks unless you paste something like foamposit or kurim over it, which defeats the purpose of a nice woven.

3 Months to go and still no leaks. When do you all think we will get a crappy cell phone pic? Those seem to be the first to leak.

The 30's leaked but the 28's and 29's didn't. We might have to wait until they're unveiled.

This an interesting look for a trainer. The midsole/outsole looks like a menage e tois between the I, IV, and XI. Hopefully we get a leaked pic soon. Only 92 days til release day lol

" the line should have been killed off long ago"

Anyone saying this literally has more shoe boxes than career buckets.

. Like fashion collectors really take offense with each new performance release and think it should then be ruined for those that play.

You really think you're protecting mikes legacy on a shoe he has the last say on?

Nothing is stopping anyone from enjoying the old models they have.

Crying about stopping numbered jordans is a fanboy ego thing. Not an athlete thing.

Ive heard " those are ugly this year" or " man those joints cost too much" while at the basketball courts over the last 20 years but never once, near hoops, did I ever hear anyone say " man, they need to stop numbered jordans"
post #147 of 6489

No different than the Air Max model. It would be weird if there was no next Air Jordan. 

 

On the other hand, if they stopped at the 14 and the 17 and 18 were really the 15 and 16 for the surprise 2nd comeback then that would've been ok too. 

 

Once they figure out that Jordans stopped being cool when the basic formula stopped then this topic won't be on people's minds. 

 

One Jumpman on the upper, Nike Air logo and a Jumpman on the outsole underneath. Once they stopped keeping it real things got tacky quick.

 

There's nothing they can do about the other half of the formula which was Jordan playing in them.

post #148 of 6489
People who say they should have stopped at 14 or 23 or that air jordans must be made of leather are extremely conservative and not realistic.
Technology proceeds and it is non sense to stick with old designs.
Todays warships and aircrafts look not stylish but extremely plain due to the need of stealth.
Imagine we would build battleships like the Missouri or the yamato only for nostalgic look?
Totally inefficient in combat.
I switched from aj 5 to the 2011 and the gap of comfort and courtfeel were like 2 different worlds.

Maybe something that has some similarities with neymars new Jordan soccer kicks?
I mean 3/4 hi in black with some razor shapes on the midsole?
Something less radical than the xx8 but more interesting than the xx9 and xxx?
