    I need to know if they have actual zoom air inserts , the ogs were stupid uncomfortable from what previous reviewers have said.

    I have three pair and never wear them, because of that.

    I might pull out my GITD and try them with a insole.

    Foampostie is always stiff, just wondering can you actually feel the zoom air bag under your heel.

    No, they're like wearing vans or chucks. Having zoom in the name is blasphemous. They must have the smallest zoom bag ever put in a Nike.

    Ill love to get my hands on a retro pair and try it out but yeah $220 is expensive. Hopefully they release on nike.com so i can return them if they dont live up to my performance needs.

    The issue isn't them being narrow, it's them being like walking on concrete

    Yeah, 1.0's and 2.0's. It's pretty crazy.

    At least it's been five plus years for the zoom rookies

    Adidas does weird things. They charge $20 more for just having black boost on the harden vol.3 compared to white boost material.

    2011.

    da air max 95 came out again 2 years later, so its not unheard of retroing so early.
