It's just ridiculous that every halfway decent performance bball sneaker is coming out for 140+ bucks when these things are no harder or more expensive to make than box of tissues.

Sneakers are sorta priced in an aye hole kinda way... I paid tha full muscle one time for my Air Penny 5's ($185) and thought to myself, 'I'm from Memphis, but has Penny ever done $185 worth of anything in my life??'

But Nike has clearly earned tha right to name their price. Top athletes, top designs, top marketing, top shoe technology, top brand reputation for decades. They set tha market and I believe lesser competition has to overcharge just to keep up.

Jordan, let's just pretend they're not there. Tha sneaker game looks pretty intriguing in those small moments that you can pull that off lol
