    Saw these in store with my 16 year old. Just when I was about to give him a history lesson because he called em trash..... I picked them up and checked out the quality. These are ***.

    I had the OG navy/white. I liked the 3m on the side.

    I had these in my current size back in 2000. Pair I picked up in store had glue splotches all over the place, to the point where it looked someone had done a sole swap. Nike is Nike. They do what they want. But for an old head like me, where I absolutely loved the entire 5 dot Alpha Project from the Pippens to the Vis Zoom Uptempos, I'm gonna be critical. Trivial sure, we all are for some details. I need that Alpha Project (even the insole has changed), Official Block Family vibe back. These don't have $200 leather on em either. $100 + 20% military + $20 reward at FNL, and a Queens School of Hard Knocks t-shirt and I'm good.

    I never owned the OG, but if it had a white leather upper, it's not a 1:1 replica, this retro had white Foamposite material.

    And he's right the pic I took, glue stains were persistent on the sole and midsole. That's why I said craftsmanship is poor.

    Nike Gon' Nike though.

    9C04A1DF-E1B6-4C21-BF81-96E9D6A3C1DA.jpeg The quality of these are trash!!! The foamposite material feels super thin compared to the OG’s and the 2009 retro. Also, the craftsmanship is piss poor. Even the Insole is different then the OG’s lol. These are indeed disappointing

    A lot more comfortable than I expected. Light dribbling session and shoot around this morning. Haven’t played in games but doesn’t feel too bad.

    Nice if you can provide a review on the shoe, seem like no youtubers is doing a performance review on this.
     
  15. Meh usually skimpy materials is a turnoff for me. But thank you for the info!

    Honestly very similar to nightwing thoughts on the Flightposite 1 released back in 2014 as the video stated.

    They’re very tight and the ventilation is really bad. I bought a pair for 35 dollars at the outlets as my tourney shoe. In all honestly, love the shoe’s overall performance. Takes awhile to mold to your feet but it was really worth it. It’s a good reference to the Flightposite 2

    Ic i used to own the 1st flightposite 1, very nostiagic shoe for me as it is my first ever basketball shoe. The best part of all these posite shoes are that we can remove the insole and put it into another shoe to enjoy the zoom air feeling. Thanks for the info bro!
