In most cases yes nike does overprice everytime they release a shoe jordan 09 example and you saw what happened in a pic on the bottom heel ofthat shoe. That is why usually i just wait cause my limit is around 125 for a pair and then when i want extras i take advantage of the discounts to get extras.That is all smart of everyone to do because especially nowadays imo nike should at least lower their price in order to get more purchases on their items.Jordans back at around 125 retail back then was a fair price but now 190 plus is bad. Also now with resellers and the shoe collecting bringing the price upeven more nike is sure to continue to bring prices higher.Originally Posted by swingshot
Jordan XX. Too high off the ground/poor court feel. Midfoot strap is redundant. Ankle strap is awkward.
Jordan XX1. Uneven cushioning at heel. Forefoot cushioning is unresponsive.
Jordan XX2. Uneven cushioning/unstable at heel.
Jordan XX3. Midsole too stiff. Ankle support lacking.

Oddly, i thought the XIX performs pretty well, otherwise i'm agreement with you.
Yes, the tongue feels funny to me too. Personally, I would like it to be a little softer. But for most people, they love the tongue because it isone of the design elements that makes the Vs stand out.Originally Posted by no vert
Jordan v. The plastic on the tongue killed my feet. Gave them them to the Salvation Army about two months ago in pristine condition.
