Alot is made about the MSRP's, but who still pays that anymore? Most shoes go on sale within a matter of weeks, especially the Kobe's which you can get for 49.99 easy now (which is ironic because Nike made a cheaper takedown version of them called the Legend and it retails for 85$). Show a military ID card, 20% off right off the top. 30% off and an extra 10% if you spend more than 100, and 150$ LeBron's which are on sale for 120 right now go down to 72 (granted they are supposed to be excluded, you get lucky sometimes).

If you know someone who works at Footlocker, Champs, footaction, or NIketown that's 30% off whenever, and 50% on occassion. Get in their free rewards programs, VIP for finishLine and FinishLine's winner's circle and they send you coupons and gift certificates for your birthday and for every like 200$ you amass in purchases.

I've had all kinds of Jordans, Kobes, TMacs, Garnetts, Starburys, LeBrons, Flightposites, whatever was hot at the time and I only remember paying 100$ or more once and that was for the Hyperflights which I did pay full price for but got another shoe half off.

These are what you are talking about *****

I may be showing my age but when I was in high school. I got the Walt Frazier Puma brand cause they were cool. The first major brand to come in colors and there was no NIKE in those days. Also i was going to meet Clyde that summer at a basketball camp in the Catskills

Cant say they have....the new Tmac's and KGs when they dropped drew interest but I never pursued and bought them. And doubt I will. I might get the KG's tho. Back in the day players influenced me and my peers. Long live the Fab 5!

I'd say the fact that Marbury actually wears his shoes in NBA games has convinced me to try a pair. At $15, I've got very little to lose.
