    Not sure if there's a thread for this but I seen the Diamond Turf in the store today. Didn't know they were back out. These don't look good. The strap is leather and cheap.

    What was retail?

    Any other noted changes than strap material?

    Never had a pair of these but may be on lookout for right price.

    I wish they would release the Air Turf Raider again. They were my first ever Nike's. I remember my family was too poor to buy me Nike's growing up, but my grandmother came into town and bought me a pair in the 4th grade. Damn I miss my grandmom :frown:

    Yeah, model retro'd back in 2012, but the colorways were awful.

    I remember I had a black/marooon/white model as a kid. Loved those!

    I try not to nitpick w/ retros but that leather strap is absolutely terrible. Sucks b/c I've been waiting to catch a pair of these for a minute. Guess the wait continues.

    The leather strap makes them look like fakes.

    Resellers know us 80s & 90s kids who have the money will buy them because our favorite athletes wore em. Not too many kids out there rocking trainers unless their parents bought em.....because our favorite athlete wore them :pimp:

    ......Bo Jackson ring a bell?

    Manny Pacquiao.

    Hideo Nomo.

    Roger Federer.

    Derek Jeter.

    Michael Vick.

    That's off the top of my head. I know I'm missing some. Unless you are talking currently sponsored athletes and not retro releases?

    Did the Vicks, Nomo, jeter's get the same respect as the Bo's, Griffey's, Junior Seau's. No other athletes within the last 10yrs-15yrs outside of basketball gets respects for their silhouettes honestly

    If you were from the Atlanta or even Georgia as a whole, the Vicks were hot.

    The retro run for them hasn't been good because of what he did. Name value has been tarnished.

    And, fair assessment of the last 15 years. Nothing has really caught on with mass appeal outside of basketball lately. But that's where money is to be made so companies aren't putting that money into other sports.
