    ITT: Positive sneaker discussion with topics ranging

    from benign to controversial. Across all sneaker brands.

    I'll start it off. The black Jordan 3 is the greatest sneaker of all time.

    It's not up for discussion. [​IMG]

    Those who know me on here know that I'm a wrestling fan, both amateur and professional.

    I must say that it's a damn shame that Nike is doing away with its wrestling shoe lineup.

    Although they did just sponsor world team member and future MMA superstar, Aaron Pico.

    Nike had/has some of the best wrestling shoe designs ever.

    Especially the Cary Kolat series, it was dope to see him in the old ad for the Air Pillar.

    Nike has a deep catalog of wrestling shoes too retro.

    Although that appears to be a pipe dream at this point.

    The USA colorway of these footsweeps is pure [​IMG]

    Air Reversals also piff.

    Which shoe if the most special in your collection? Like it has a lot of meaning to you?

    This is tough for me, but if I had to choose I would pick my Paranorman Foams. Winning that contest was crazy! I would've never thought I would win out of all the people who entered.

    my favorite jordan of all time is the black/metallic v and its not even close. I've owned cool grey, space jams and black/red xi's and I never want another pair of em. they nice, but, eh.

    those michael johnsons look familiar.. don't think I actually remember them. the jordan comfort max 10, 11 and 12 look a lot like those. Nike probably revisited the design of those to come up with the silhouette of the comfort max line.

    Adidas has been releasing FIRE! IMO of course. :lol: I think ASICS should slow down on the GRs a little, I know the fanbase if growing but god lol.

    IS there an Adidas RG3 thread?

    I miss all of the old Nike ads, more so the ones like this from '96-'97

    On a side note, I wish Nike retro'd the blue colorway of the Bakin's again too.

    I love XI's. They are my favorite in my collection. I had 7 pairs once. Kinda weird since I didn't like them when they first released.
