Overhyped and over manufactured.. yeah for sure there are alot of those.
Foamposites are the most durable shoes out there, those things don't crease and the foam rarely cracks, My original royals took 10 years of beating before I threw them away, just because I felt like the sole was too dirty and I bought new ones either way

If you're weird about gently used stuff, there's plenty of dead stock (new in box, but usually fairly pricey i.e. the price of a pair of new Jordans)

Check out shoe forums and places like solecollector (if it's still around). They have buy/sell/trade threads and most people seem legit although I've never bought from them.

I had a sick pair of red/white/blue Weapons a few years ago. They only seem to sell the poor man's weapons now (lower cut, less padding, newer looking), so you couldn't buy straight from Converse.

Adidas bought Reebok, which explains why you see ads now haha.

Nah I know there's some really high quality shoes out there, I was just being a little argumentative. I prefer the feel of the older ones, much more comfortable... Plus they could give you some cred with real sneakerheads if you want to get into collecting.

I just can't stand it when you pick up something like a shirt and then run into 5 other people wearing it. So the rarity factor of older shoes is worth it to me too.

The best bball shoe of all time is the AJ XI

In ANY of the colorways. It looks so sleek, so sexy, and so classy. While also being performance beasts.

I want to be able to hoop in expensive shoes, and rock them and break necks. I don't want them having to have a niche outfit in my closet either. I don't want them colored like a ghetto bowl of "look at me" color fruity pebbles.
I don't see that in lebron's south beach does. Don't see the over design or ghetto in the miami vice based shoes. The colors certainly aren't alienating depending on your culture/place your from and certainly alienating colors in Miami/80's-90's vice Miami
