    i wouldn't go that far saying he's washed, he has done everything that needed to be done to make the sneaker culture what it is today. He is continuing to do that with innovation its not all about aesthetic he's using new technologies with basketball shoes.

    C'mon now, be Rational.[​IMG]

    A Man can have Classics, have Hall of Fame Stats... even be the Greatest of All-Time... AND STILL, even the GOAT can be Washed and probably WILL BE at some point. It's almost inevitable.

    It's not an Insult to say someone's washed up... it happens to all the greats!

    It's two diff worlds, but for all intents and purposes, put MJ out on the court with Lebron & KD, right now... would anybody be wrong for saying he's washed up or past his prime?

    The GOAT's of their respective games can still have something to offer at the end of the day, but it's a Young Man's Game... eventually their performance will decline.

    I said it was two different worlds, but it's an Analogy...

    Often an Analogy involves two subject matters NOT of the same kind.

    Bottom line... you get what I'm saying: Tinker is Not Immune to being washed at some point.

    Though that is true people can strike creativity. It is much more flexible than sports. It's not like if you lose it its gone forever like basketball. Athleticism permanently decays but creativity is not like that

    Looks like they may be dropping the price (If the sheet is accurate).

    I'm gonna guess and say $160 for the base model.

    If they do the flyknit on the elite thing again im going to flip.... Flyknit has already been produced so much that it has become a fairly staple technology from Nike. It has no longer become "premium" but is now a necessity to compete. I hope these won't disappoint like the last 2 base models

    He also did the last couple of Melos.....smh

    Here is Tinkers blueprint since 2009, he brings the athlete in and asks what his favorite car is and designs the shoe after it.
    The Kobe XI will take everything they can out of the 458 italia and put it in a sneaker. I would prefer Eric.

    Last couple Melos weren't bad looking imo. Comfort I have no idea so I can't base if they are good in that sense.

    WORD!

    The Flyknit Hype is long gone. Don't get me wrong, it's still dope on the right model, but to act like it's something New to the game... NAH.

    The base model XI should go back to Engineered Mesh if anything... I didn't even take the HyperFuse BS seriously with the X's.[​IMG]  

    And hopefully they do something different besides the High-Top Gimmick this time. This is Nike... your Base Model should be "ELITE" and not look like a Takedown.

    I swear that high top crap is so lazy at this point. It was cool on the IX but the X was just lame

    Lazy, really? So having 2 high tops in back to back years is lazy but making lows every year since 4 isn't lazy?

    To date there is only 3 high top 10s. Every other pair is a low but the highs are the problem? Ha ha ha
