Shoes better come with rocket packs. I retired from the game in 2007. Glad I never went back.

And they mentioned being able to "share" your scores online. Could folks not just hang on the rim for a split second and bring about a high (but not too high) result that'd not truly represent one's ability?


Bought the same shoes last month. Definitely a classic. Also, those Lebrons are sick. Defintiely going to have to add them to my collection. I have numbers 2-9. Still need to get the 10s and find a pair of 1s on Ebay

It's a different story here where almost EVERYONE in my school wore Jordans, that tends to turn you off to a certain degree. When Nike started re-re-releasing them the stocks started to drop so I ended up selling most of mine.

Then there was the concords incident and I was off the game for good.

I think I still have my Payton IV tucked away in the closet. They weren't as comfortable as the VC's though.

F*cking ridiculous. I could think of so many better things to buy with $300.

Copping them! Honestly Lebron is killing the sneaker game right now. Best quality and best looks so I won't mind paying an extra 50 for them ( paid 267 with tax for my elites) not as good looking as the 9s tho

9s are amazing. Copped the Freegums and Mangos a few months ago. Too bad I missed out on the Cannons.

Maybe I'm nostalgic, but I still like LeBron's 1st shoe the best.

This is the pair I still need to get. I didn't get heavy in the shoe game until 04.
