    It does look a little flat and old now; even on Michael's feet. I like the modern shape better, but it is very overboard; especially the elephant print. It reminds me of the huge watch trend: EVERYTHING must be in XL size. Something in between the two would be perfect.

    Someone send that photo to Nike

    They clearly would be using less material overall in creating these, that only benefits them (less padding/EP)

    The whole 3 shape now is more skate board shoe than anything. To the point where they now look more like they’re inspired by the OG than replica

    Makes too much sense.

    Doesn’t JB make every release of the shoe different to “honor” the original?

    It's not even remotely that serious. Design is a subjective art.

    :rofl: I love some OGs. Some I don’t. I typically go hard for the 4,5,6,7, and 8. I’m not a fan of the 1988 3s. I think the 1994 perfected the design. Sheesh :rofl:

    Not that serious yet he has an entire IG page practically dedicated to very subject of comparing retros to their original counterparts. Yeah, not that serious at all. If it wasn’t “that serious” I don’t think NT would exist or that he’d be spending probably hours of his day writing about the subject.

    I prefer the 1994 retro aesthetically than the OG.



    You must be talking about the P. Rods from like 10 years ago lol

    I didn’t know I was supposed to like Every OG or else. I y’all about the OGs I like on my IG. Calm down before you pop a vein.

    Yeah that’s just wrong :lol: the original IS the perfected design. Matter of fact JB is throwing out the imperfect designs, aka the “tinker” line

    I'm saying that it's not nearly serious enough to get a post off with quotables like "Sad", "Kinda can’t even take you serious now", and "If you don’t like the OG 3s, then you just don’t like 3s then" in my opinion.

    Yes, this is a site with subforums that care enough to have debates about the differences between silhouettes of the re-releases of a 30 year old basketball sneaker. That said, being passionate and letting yourself conflate your opinion on a subjective art form with some sense of correctness is just goofy to me. If the original shape of this one particular shoe doesn't do it for him, then it just doesn't. I don't even share that opinion but getting mad at it is silly.

    He already chimed in himself though so I'm off it.

    “Not that serious”, “then don’t buy them” and/or “do you” render this forum useless. Just sayin
