Please lock if info has already been posted.

I was searching Nike TN on eBay and noticed the orange blaze AM Plus was available and was listed as a 2013 retro. I used google and found this article posted back in April on Sneakernews.

Are these scheduled to release stateside or just overseas?

Any overseas site I can purchase from?

Help will be greatly appreciated. Probably my favorite AM style and one of the best colorways.

From what I have seen, it was a Euro/Asia exclusive.

They dropped April 29th and Footlocker Europe has all the colorways and in basically full size runs.

They're 120 pounds on Footlocker UK and 150 euros on Footlocker Europe

Lucky for me, I had a friend in Japan get me the last 12 from Atmos in Japan early this month for 14,700 yen, roughly $150. All in all I got mine for $194 shipped to me.

Thanks for the info. Hopefully I can cop a pair for a reasonable price. Can't seem to find any overseas site that has them.

I looked everywhere for them. Had my brother try a stock locate at his store to see if any Footlockers in the U.S got them with no luck.

I looked at every European site that I knew about and with the exchange rate it was just more than I wanted to spend. Roughly $240+.

Cheapest way is to find someone somewhere in Asia that can help you out. Getting them from Europe would run you almost the same amount that you would pay on eBay, so if you really want them that bad, I say go for it if they have your size.

You will find some on Ebay but be prepared to pay big bucks. Otherwise try to find a hookup from EU or Japan... Don't think these will release in USA but you never know.

Yeah I saw them on eBay, damn near $300 :smh: . Hell, I only paid $150 for this DS pair of Hyper Blues. Think they were overseas drop in the early 2000s.

But I doubt they drop in the US, being that they're more popular overseas.

^^^^^ It's just the different lighting. I've had the OG and this retro and they're damn near identical in appearance (OG ran a bit smaller though).

They look close but the gradient isn't the same. There were two releases of the this colorway one in 99 the other 2000 (why who knows) but the shades of orange were different. The OG's had a more vibrant orange then when they released again they were toned down a bit. Still this retro looks good, hoping i can snag a pair

Guess my OG's were the second release then. I think there was another retro of the same tiger colourway around 2003 along with another retro of the Hyper Blue's too, both had a blackened toe guard if I remember rightly.
