    Don't recall them being retroed; the OG was lke the shoe above but white where the yellow is... These were from the second era of wrap around/clip strapdoohickey things that Nike liked to throw on bball kicks after the Nike Air Unlimited/Carnivore, etc.

    Nice but IIRC Kicksology booed the strap technology citing the lack of a "locked-down" feel

    Air Zoom GP early 1999 release worn by Gary Payton. That was a Footlocker colorway i think and the other color was the White/Black.

    .....as well as black/white/gold and navy/powder blue/white. The suede is amazing in person! The ratchet shroud is love-hate.

    If I remember correctly, the rachet/click shroud locks-down sorta like how they lock-down a snowboard binding... I like the idea of the shroud, but I alsothink it makes the shoe a bit bulky...

    I remember having the white/black/gold pair when I was younger, loved the look of it and the ratchet part made the shoes fit nice and snug.

    Damn these were '99?

    wow thought a lil older. when i see these, i immediately think of the Air Money's i had back in the day. Wish my feet hadnt grew so fast durin that time.

    o props to whoever posted the GP commercial. never seen it.
