it's not quite the infrareds but, if you can appreciate a good shoe, the quality is damn good and it still looks good regardless. people are tripping over retros because they aren't verbatim to OGs, haters need to stop hating and get a pair or shutup.

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 ...

I think quality has to do with the chinese factories and how much profit they are getting from JB and Nike. The exchange rate is way down from what it was once before 1:9 in the 90s to 1:6.8 now.. so they would have to settle for cheaper materials to make the shoes in order to keep profit high. I've heard though that the cost of making a pair of these shoes are around $23 + fright (which is cheap considering how much they ship at a time), so ya as a consumer we are getting ripped off, but jordans are so addicting right???

IDK i like the shoe for what it is. I don't really give a f*ck if it was SOOOO much better a decade ago because apparently it's still pretty damn nice now. You really do sound mad about it though
