their are alot of young people on here and they hold if not as much but more knowledge on shoes more then half of u who claim 2 b "shoe gods" or watever.
sumthing else 2 think about guys
start changing ur mindset 2 young people they hold alot of info.

What?
what does knowing a lot about shoes, have anything to do with this math problem.

"Jordan Brand 23" is going to buy a pair of jordans for 140 dollars, the sales tax where he lives is 8.25%, what is the total amount "jordanbrand 23" will have to pay?

what does that have to do anything with knowing a lot about the shoes, its good that you know a lot about shoes but your question has nothing to do with shoes,its more of a test based problem for 5th grade math students.

you are def taking this the wrong way, just relax man

Hey JB 23. Let me help you out famos. For future reference. An easy way to calculate your tax in your head is to take 10% of the MSRP ($140.00), which wouldbe $14.00. Now, being that NY charges around 8% sales tax, take 2 percentage points off of the 10%. 1% would be equivalent to $1.40. You follow.. Say$1.40x2 equals $2.80.

$14.00-$2.80= $11.20

$140.00MSRP+$11.20TAX=$151.20

Now simply round it off to the nearest dollar (being that money's no object to you) and there you have your final price.

Remember, subtract percentage points according to the State your in. ie PA 6% etc, etc. Got it. Enjoy your VIII's...I know I will.

Peace.

Whats this guy talking about ? And where are you from ?
I would say Nigeria from the excellent use of "English". I wonder if he is offering money to help his family out so he can get money inreturn.

Alright Huey Freeman, you can take this "young people" revolution back to Woodcrest. Here on NT, I'm just trying discuss the Playoff 8'sand WHEN THESE ARE DROPPING ON SWOOSH!?!?!??!

Also, maybe that Playoff 8 money would be better used on a TI-83 and the latest edition of Webster's Dictionary

Back to the topic at hand, congratulations to all those who copped early and love their shoes. IMO, this is a much better release than the fugly laser XV'sand along with the aquas easily the best retro 8's to come out this year.

, but sadly, come RD, some people will prefer thoseXV's to these VIII's just because of the exclusiveness. Hypebeasts
sad, but true.
BTW, nice pics Quino. You can really notice the textured nubuckon those
