Whats the point of a retro of a popular shoe if its compromised of stripped down and cheapened material technologies, while being sold for higher prices, then ontop of it not even getting the aesthetics to the shoe right? Thus becoming a completely different shoe, and not a retro of a nostalgic and brillaint piece of footwear?
Because then it becomes something completely different. But lames buy them like it's the 90's and Jordan's are still relevant, and are buying "dumbed down" frankenstein remedial versions of what they were originally. Once the consumer smartens up and doesn't buy anything slapped with a Jumpman logo, it will force Nike / Jordan brand to smarten up to match the consumer's higher expectations for their products.
There is nothing to hate ... these things are hot garbage. Suede Black / Red XII ... garbage. The list goes on and on ...
