    This is a great idea maybe they should do a whole theme with their other athletes and make it an avengers thing, Lillard CA or BP, Rose Hawkeye, Mitchell I mean do I need to even say it, this could be great and a good way to get my money

    Marvel royalty rate probably pretty high :lol: and I don’t see the marketing fully lining up

    Adidas couldn't pull off a successful marketing campaign even if Nike paid for it :lol:

    looks like the Avengers thing might be a full series. sneakerhighway already got a vid up with the ironman hardens, and posted a pic of the TMac with the shield logo. really hope Mitchell gets official spiderman shoes.

    Spiderman Mitchell's would indeed be amazing.

    Just ordered my first pair of Hardens from adc. Got the Retro Rockets colorway with 15% off. Pretty excited to play in these as everyone says such great things about them!

    Possible drop date coinciding with the Endgame release date? That would make for a release around mid to late April.

    One thing almost certain is a Marvel-NBA cross promotion campaign hyping both the movie and the NBA Playoffs.

    Just watch...

    T-mac should be professor x, not captain America

    I thought the T Macs had the SHIELD emblem on them so it would imply he's Nick Fury...

    First time playing in the 3 today. Very nice right out of the box! Good lockdown, minimal wiping, great cushion. Definitely going to grab a 2nd pair if they hit the low low like the 2. Shot out to @hoopsboy for posting the coupon a few pages back, absolutely love this cw :nthat:

    Wish i'd grabbed another pair when adidas had the 30% sale. Can't find the black/blue corral CW under 100 and the materials on my current pair are starting to break down a little - been hooping in them 4 times a week since November.

    Damn bro, that’s major work. I’m a little older and keep a pretty big rotation so I should limit myself to one pair per model, universally, but these are way too nice to pass on a second pair if they hit the low low. I hope you find your CW for a good price, if not I’m sure they’ll be plenty of other CWs for steals w/in a couple months

    Is it really “Marketing” though? Nike says a shoe’s releasing and people run out to buy them.

    Yea because Nike built up its brand recognition and reputation to that point where they can say this shoe is dropping on this date and ppl rush to it.

    Where are the materials breaking down? Just curious? I have Cosmos and Supernovas that I rotate between. I wear both once a week.

    Just normal stretching of the upper materials. Starting to feel like a half size up over the long run. Not giving me the fit and support that I had right out of the box. Traction and cushion for the most part still super reliable.

    Ah I see. I like my shoes snug/very little dead space so I went half size down on V3s so if they stretch I should be fine.

    If there's one thing I don't love about the v3s it's that. I went TTS and they were perfect for about 3 months. Then as those materials broke in it felt like I should have gone a half size down. Tried on a half size down out of the box and it was way too snug. Maybe my foots between sizes on this one.

    They do loosen up a bit with wear but lacing them a little tighter fixed everything for me.

    Wait a few months for that Harden 2 level price drop.

    It's been mentioned countless times in here but adidas sizing is terrible. I went a full size down in V1s.
