i Think the AF1 needs to retire for a lil bit...just so it can come back be exclusive again. Nike streeettchhhed it out too far from 1998-2005. It needs abreak.

Shoes that need to come back:








I feel bad for you young'ns who dont remember the release days ofthese shoes..

take your pick. decent variety in this old thread:

http://niketalk.com/topic/151201?page=1

to add to that, and this, i would want the air stab og navy blue c/w back.. The other 20 plus c/w's need to GO though



With many models its more of a colorway hatred and butchering than an actual model that needs to go.

Mixed feelings on the Uptempos. Last time round the bubble was looking real small. If you mean the CB34s that dropped Spring/Summer 96... they have the samemidsole.


+1 on the Vis Zoom Uptempo.

Air Force Max Cb - Concord.
Zoom Flight Glove


... and it's absolute pipe dream... but i'd love to see the Air Alonzo. Even if they have to change the name.
