Shes like dat tomboy chick you grew up with and you're like "yooo wassup" 8) wen u see her. And shes like "yooooo" 8)

then one day yall are workin out at the gym and shes liftin some weights....not sweatin...but glistenin....and you see it.

And she sees you see it.

Then you drop her off at her apt and go inside like "yoo u got a towel" and shes like "u need a tarp for that big *** forhead" and youre like " i know u aint talkin" and yall both laugh...then the laugh crawls to a smile and yall just grab each other and start smashin right there on da couch gettin sweat all over the leather and shes reaching for **** that aint eem there.

Then the next time you see her youre like "hey" :smile:

and shes like "hey" :smile:

They haven't retro-ed this shoe correctly since the '03 version (which had fantastic leather and comfort). The '09 and up retros have all been garbage - I only had one pair of IXs ('Powder Blue') and I sold it quickly after realizing it was overpriced, plastic leather trash.

The DonC vid was the best of the "shopping" series.  Being a 40 year old chicago based sneakerhead.  I have alot of the same memories of the shoes relating to Jordan that he did.   It was nice seeing someone who actually knew the history of the shoes as they related to the game.

Don C didnt buy anything, him being there alone made that store mad money, him paying had to be a front especially since they are in stores still but money doesnt equall smarts so who knows

some people still buy shoes because they like em...
i dont believe he bought them either.....so all them kicks in that store and you pick up nothing but jb and you work with jb..........he is basically advertising them 4s by "copping" 2 pair as well as trying to help get rid of them maroons sitting on shelves........some people just like shoes, but some people like whatever their favorite "celebrities/athletes" like....example anyone who buy a jordan because he wore them.

You keep stressing the word "some". You telling me you have no shoes because an athlete wore them?

nope....i base all my purchases off of what i like.....never been one to like/want something because so and so had it, but if i see someone wearing something fly that is different because i actually like the look...idk just my mentality i guess...i stressed some because dude had it in bold as well referring to my post.

I'm sure there are some ppl that buy shoes strictly based on who's wearing them. But I'm sure most ppl here would agree that if the shoes don't look good most ppl here aren't gonna rock them.

It is just another marketing technique. Hair styles, clothes, shoes and just a lifestyle in general can be marketed, to an extent. I wouldn't be surprised if those specific 7 picked were because they are available now or if a retro is due soon/available in secondary markets (such as RiF). There are always a mix of those who will buy because of someone else or if you only follow what you like, but those who do already adopted the shoe culture and aforementioned are usually don't follow shoes too closely.

go to any sig athlete thread and you'll see folks who give a million reasons they dont like a shoe but buy every colorway because they owe their favorite/athlete or something.... its their money but its still ridiculous to me, but im an old head so it probably isnt for me to understand
