    My original post wasn't meant to be disrespectful, I just disagreed with your opinion. Don't be so sensitive.

    I've always been nice to you, so chill with the insults. They're unnecessary and make you look bad, fam.

    March 14, 2019 - In celebration of Air Max Day, two of Tinker Hatfield’s most iconic silhouettes merge in the Air Max 1-inspired Air Jordan III Tinker. It uses the same University Red and white color scheme as the OG AM1, and comes with interchangeable Swooshes and Nike Air branding.

    The Air Jordan III Tinker "Air Max I" releases globally on March 30.

    Oh I won't... I don't like the color red. Already have Katrina's, which I surprisingly like despite the small amount of red in them, since they're the next best thing until 88s retro again.

    This is just my personal opinion... so please take it with a grain of salt. There’s a special place in my heart for all the OG models & their colorways. In fact, when I first saw the first version of the Tinker 3s I felt a little uneasy... something about a swoosh on’em I suppose... an ‘89 Air Flight Low version of the swoosh at that. Although I loved the sketch concept behind it, I couldn’t bring myself to pull the trigger & cop on RD... But as I kept seeing more & more on-foot pics. I asked myself, “If this shoe would’ve dropped in ‘88 would my initial opinions have been the same? If I had not witnessed & lusted after the original 1988 Air Jordan III a.k.a the gold standard... would I not think this was a dope sneaker? And I came to the conclusion that on it’s own merit... Yes, I would.”
    My feelings are kinda the same with this model honestly. Going forward I always use that same ideology... anyways just my 2 cents. If ya like’em... good luck on RD
    If ya don’t... $ saved & on to the next...

    I'm pretty sure with inflation in general, that would give anybody enough reason to price hike over the years. The fact that Nike/JB still has AJ1s at 160 is amazing. They could hike to 220 and people would still buy. Gasoline is still gasoline. How is it 4.29/gallon here in Hawaii when it was 1.99/gallon when I first started driving..Or is the latest techron worth the price hike? Still 87 octane at the end of the day.

    And the price hikes really don't mean jack to me honestly. I wasn't into sneakers back in my elementary years when Jordan was playing so I never really got his shoes. Only one I ever had was the blue 13 in the 5th grade because I played basketball at Boys and Girls club. I started getting into it when I first created this NT account. That was at a time when I was used to paying 220 for yeezys and around 200 for ultraboost so I guess I'm just used to paying in that price range.

    If these were $140 plus 20% off at an outlet, I would definitely cop.

    But for $225, :rofl: :rofl: Hell Naw

    When I hit the rewind button... I can easily remember the mind-state of the junior-high me... sitting in Study Hall staring at the 2-page ad in Sports Illustrated... Mike on 1 page... Mars on the left... If he had these on his feet??? Interchangeable swoosh’s even?!? Damn... High School color too!!!
    Smh... I’d be thinking I’ll wear this swoosh when I’m gonna drop 30 on you... this swoosh has triple-double written all over it... this swoosh means you don’t get a basket... this swoosh here means attempt an in-game dunk!!!

    This the kind of shoe that pops on feet. Esp that Nike Air on the heel. If it ain't putting a dent on your budget, it's a must cop

    Your point has been made. You can stop now. People change their mind all the time. It dont matter what the reason. Just buy what you like, state you like it, and move on. Who gives a **** what another says in here about YOUR opinion. I like +color way Js as well. Some do not. Who cares at this point. Do you.

    Man, never knew this shoe would cause such hostility. I'm with you though @Lucky13s. If people are honestly saying and honestly do hate a pair, the only way/reason they'd then buy said hated pair "behind the scenes" is connected to their perceived or actual limitedness or resell value. If JB hypothetically drops a pair this is universally hated/panned, but is only releasing 100 pairs worldwide, people will still try for them to either "flex" (I hate that term), trade, or resell. Pretty simple IMO.

    I hope these are a wide release, because that $225 is tough, but I REALLY like these.

    Yeah these are too ugly to merit $225.

    Only thing I like about these is the EP swooshes. Those would be flames on a better executed colorway.

    Though I'm good on these, you're so right about the shape. Solely based on the images we're seeing, the shape does look pretty good.

    Agreed on these being head turners. Honestly, i live in a city and country big on runners and the tinkers get me more looks and compliments than the BC3s for example.
