    infrareds still being released every few years?

    I have an itch to get a pair again

    last time I had them was the release following HOA I believe

    when was the last release? anyone know if they're slated for a release in the not too distant future?

    last release was 2015

    2020 is thirty year anni, so I'd imagine they'll come back.

    Just snagged a pair for a little under $200 that I was watching for like 2 months. Wish they’d give those a run sometime soon

    I got a pair from the 2010 release for under retail at flight club in 2012. Those were the days.

    They are a certi cop on the low, was a pair of am1 in wmns sizing from late 2018 with similar colours was annoyed i couldn’t get them at the time so these will be a nice space filler

    Dark ages = all retros thereafter

    So dont buy them.

    If the only pair you like was a pair made in 1990, and the hundreds of other colourways theyve released of that shoe over the 29 years since are all junk because their shape is wrong...

    Yeah we can leave that golden age talk in the 87 thread. We all know it’s not gonna look the way it did in 1990. It’s Nike at this point.

    Bring on the infrared next year in all the special variations. :pimp:

    I remember seeing the laser blue og's sz12 sitting on clearance racks at a Finish Line in Columbus,OH about 5 years ago. For some reason they run tighter than the OG infrareds. It almost seems like theres more padding in the ankle.

    The 2015 pair wasn’t that that bad. I still have my pair DS. I’ll break them out this year hopefully they won’t retro any time soon.

    Scooped some lightly worn 2015s a few weeks ago for about $95 shipped on ebay. Always wanted a pair, only 90s besides bacons that I'd ever care to own (but those are a pipe dream).
