    Good looking shoe, similar sole and mid to a 97, but bigger air.

    Upper like a moulded/pressed segmented textile, supposed to represent geography, one pair cw represented oceans and another land.

    Oceans CW was cools blues with some purples.

    Found a link on google, but havent done a hard search. Probably photos out there.

    Think this shoe will do ok from the finished render i saw.

    Early rendering looks decent. Can’t wait to see high quality pics. Colorway seems cool as well

    I’m probably in. Like what I’m hearing so far, 97 influence, Black/iridescent colorway. Render looks legit from what I can tell too.

    well the hard part is making the sole look good. And they look pretty classic.

    The upper needs jesus though

    these with a simple premium leather upper would be straight class.

    Why not make the light blue ring screen parts one section by joining them where theyre trying to touch???

    That would way sleeker

    These could be way better. I dont like eyesores.

    Just saw that... I’m liking what I’m seeing so far. Let’s hope that upper got some love.

    I wish I couldve seen the meeting where they addressed the lips problem from the 270s

    looks like they did a good job getting rid of it

    looks like a older shoe. i can't recall the model. not a fan of the 270's. they look like they're missing something.

    I dont know about these on second look. They make me think of something like this
    [​IMG]

    where the heel has the whole shoe slanted forward like that. Thats a lot of heel.

    not only that but the dashboard is actually making it sit back, so as extreme as the upper seam that meets the midsole looks angled forward, its going to look even worse on level ground/

    This should be moved to the Nike section...? I would have never through to find a thread regarding these in Retro.

    I dislike most of new models, but those look really good
    OG colorway with some mesh/suede, white/grey based with some original popping color for accents and that a well executed new air max model straight in the line of the 1s,90s,BWs, etc
