    What's up everyone....I haven't been on NT for awhile so I've been 'out the loop', so to speak, but what's the deal with all of the AM90 Infrareds that are selling on the Bay that are coming from China?

    It seems that there are 4 or 5 different sellers (or maybe the same seller with different names) on the Bay that have NUMEROUS AM90's (2008 release) inthe infrared color.

    What's the deal with these? They appear to be legit. Are these any different than the joints that came out last year in the US? Different materials,b-grades, ect? I just don't understand why they have so many to sell. Were these released out in China and weren't popular, like they are in theStates? Any insight would be great.

    Thanks NT

    most people in china are into converse, addidas , puma. The hype for nike shoes isnt as great as it is here in the States.

    That's what I was thinking...these are all reputable sellers too. 99% and up FB and many many sales. Just seemed weird to me that there are that many outthere now...

    BTW...what was the beef over the 2008 AM 90 Infrared when it released last year? I know most ppl didn't care for the 'premium' ostrich version orthe 'Currents' and that the 2008 doesn't have the large air unit like the old versions did....I guess what I'm getting at is how much differentis the 2008 AM 90 Infrared compared to the HOA release, back in 2005?

    Thanks Frank. Hard to tell over the damn LCD monitor and not having the opportunity to see them side by side in person. They're definitely NOT 'RunninGunnin' Infra-Pink though...haha...thank God.

    Like everyone else said they are a lighter red (some say pink) then the HOA release by far saw both in person the other day

    That's the exact reason for my post!! I was wondering why/how these prices were so low out of China (besides the high shipping cost). I copped so thanksto everyone. I would like to get an HOA some day though, but over 2bills? Ouch.

    you can find them for resonable prices still but only some sizes. I'm a sz13 and haven't ever come across an 08' for under $200, at that priceyou're better off searching for HOA's

    Same here.

    Can't usually find 13s on the 'bay, and, if I do, the price is ******ed.
