Ok, its pretty much well known at this point that their quality is for %!%!. But people come onto this forum trying to "defend" the price increasesand lie to themselves saying the quality isn't that bad (even though i saw a post earlier with a pair of space jams that were leaning to the sides inopposite directions ). Bottom line is their is no justification for the increase in price, its plain greed. They didn't do any advertising for theshoe, and the quality is worse so why the increase? Inflation you say? Wrong. So anyhow I came across these old reebok pump ads and i noticed that the price onthe original's is either equal to or less than the retro's yet the quality of reebok's pump retro's is dead on to the og's. Reebok has been VERY on point with their pump retro's, the quality has been basically that of the original release, everything has matched up, the cut ofthe shoe, the placement of colors the quality, and a reebok pump is more expensive to manufacture than a Jordan XI (im willing to bet on that). So how is it,that when reebok retro'd the premier edition pump they were able to sell it for the exact price from 1989. How is it that reebok was able to now retro thetwilight zone pump and sell it for LESS than it cost in 1990? Reebok can do it and Jordan brand can't? It just goes to show you that they really are takingadvantage of these younger kids, with the horrible quality of the spacejams and talk of a "premium quality" Jordan retro with a higher price tag itstime to start really calling JB on their bull %!%!. Notice the price is nearly 50 dollars less on the originals? And Nike had to advertise heavily for that shoe, R&D, quality materials and a cheaper retailprice.
