Example:

Jordan 1


Jordan 9


Jordan 15 (not the retros)


Lebron 9


Lebron 10
Holy crap Nike makes some ugly shoes. The Jordan 1's are amazingly sick, but the rest are fugly.

Yes they do. They didn't start doing that stuff until the mid to late 2000s. Prior to that a shoe had to be white or black based per NBA rules. And I think white / black based shoes with hints of color are stylish, yet classy.

Now you see kids running around in HIGHLIGHTER color shoes. It looks disgusting. Pathetic. It screams look at me. Overly flamboyant, and over designed. Let me put on some nice jeans and my crayola marker colored kicks.

Sure I can. I know my shoes. Thus the original "Swoosh" moniker username.

There has only been one pair of LeBron's I've really liked, and that's the LeBron 2. The rest are built like concrete bricks.

Today's shoes suck. Cheap materials, under the guise of "lightweight" yet they sell for a higher price than they used to be. Up until the early 2000s you could get a performance beast shoe that was made of REAL leather that was durable, that didn't last 3 months of constant pick up games.

I've burned through SO many pairs of Nike's the past several years since they went to mesh, plastic, and thin rubbers for their shoes.

And they play the consumer by releasing a v1, v2, playoff shoe, in outrageously hideous colors multiple times a season.

Look at LeBron's HORRENDOUS colored All Star sneaker. These lames think "louder" = "better"

You should've just called this thread, 'Post oversized pictures of the three most popular brands.'


Go with something unique and cool that a bunch of footlocker shopping dbags won't have.

Converse Reacts or Aero Jams
Old Reebok Pumps
Converse Weapons
Daryl Dawkins' style Ponys
Classic Reebok BB4600 or BB5600
Reebok Kamikazes
Ewings (like you posted)
Some Barkleys like the Sharkley (they did a retro of it a few years back)

Straps, high tops, padding, different. That's what you want. There are plenty gently used pairs and new ones on ebay if you look around.

Sorry, I don't buy overpriced, over manufactured, overhyped shoes that fall apart in 2 months.

I was actually thinking about the Pumps and Weapons the other day when I bumped into old ads for each shoe. Kevin Mchale rapping was hilarious.

Kamikazes are becoming popular again, Reebok is actually advertising their products now and have been pushing those.

I do agree that some shoes, especially Nike can be shotty. I will say that every pair that I posted, Held up extremely well to many hours on the street ball courts. There are a reason that these shoes sell well, they look "Nice". Shoes like the Foamposite are very unique that smaller brands don't have the technology or money to develop. The Foams took more abuse than any shoe that I ever owned. To this day they still look great 10+ years later.

Overhyped and over manufactured.. yeah for sure there are alot of those.
