    *sigh* Don't remind me, yo. Been lurking on this site for a good 15 years, only officially joined maybe a year or so ago. For 2 reasons:

    1) Last go around on OG Air Force Max/Fab 5s ('13? maybe? Correct me if wrong), they went SUPER onsale. Marked down to like $90/99 on, almost positive, Finish Line. I was ready to pay retail with no problems with that. Waited for "another" markdown, thinking I was smart & was about to double up on pairs I only would've got one pair for retail. I wasn't. They smooth disappeared from every store in the nation maybe 2 weeks later. *Fred Sanford voice* You big dummy. SMFH

    2) Nike all black Air Missions/Junior Seau. They got marked down on City Gear to $59.99. Waiting for those since OG drop in the 90s. Repressed childhood ish since I nebver had the black ones. Had the wht/blue OG & retro. Staring at the blue pair as I type. Again, thought I was about to double up. Went back. NOTHING. Checked EVERYwhere. They disappeared. Found wht/blues everywhere, black just disappeared in thin air. Pun intended. Above, folks bought those Barkleys. These were probably mass shipped back. Checked outlets & all that. THEN, got lucky & found some at retail on Amazon. Went back to cop. Done. Gone. Bet someone from here geeked up like me copped 'em. Haha. Only seen ONE black pair pop in the past like, 4-5 years on eBay. They didn't sell, I PM's ole boy to make an offer. No answer. Been subscribed to that Nike Air Mission thread on here for years hoping for a bite (Main and SOLE reason I stopped lurking & signed up Niketalk, for real). Then get heartbroken errytime I see someone simply added an archival pic to the thread & nobody has any for sale. FML. LOL

    I just had to vent around some folks that feel my pain right fast, champ. Back to these positive vibes....

    Don't be *too* patient like me. That's the exact moment when I played myself. Check my post above. ^^^^^

    Bro!!! I've had these happen to me with multiple shoes and its funny cause the air mission in the black colorway is one of them. It's so hot or miss some kicks I go ahead a buy retail then get mad when they go down to a deep discount a couple months later. But I've been learning my lesson and when I have the funds to cop I cop no more waiting

    Quality is solid. Not sure why they chargin’ 150.00 (usually Barkley retros are around 140.00), but you pretty much spoke how this story will end. $99.00 and below, Issa cop.

    Yeah, I know. Its driving me crazy that they are doing this with all of his retros here in the past few years. Its killing the shoe for me. :frown: And this is the first time they have retroed this colorway.

I must say I’m thoroughly impressed. The tumble leather is almost identical to the 2016 True Blue 3. Which is a great thing because I mean it looks like NSW made an effort to get away from the cheap plastic leather. Not the greatest comfort, but hardly any Barkley is. No buyers remorse for me.

    Haha I like that you said the materials are nice, and then used one of the worst AJ retros in history to get your point across.

    Yea I was saying that it’s great for a NSW shoe to have that quality of leather. Since we don’t see that often. We tend hold Jordan’s to a higher standard than any NSW shoe, especially a GR release.

    Wore mines yesterday, they’re actually comfortable. The midsole is a little soft, which could be why they are comfy
