    dude flip flops harder than the cheap *** old navy joints he wears more often than 87s he stocks for stunting purposes. you dont see oversaturation? oh wait, a few heads speak up after the fact and now you DO see oversaturation, but only in europe? okay my dude, keep riding hard. no one said too many colors, but too many close variants of the same colors. maybe if you stepped outside the bubble you live in, youd get it. and maybe youd see more 87s being worn.



    @dinos agreed on your concerns on hold tights. prob one of the GOATs but just so fragile from toe cap peeling off, to cracking mudguard, to midsole separation.

    Wait, was this directed at me? Old Navy joints? What are you even talking about? I wear AM1 95% of the time. Not sure why you made that up but ok. As for me acknowledging it being different in Europe, well Air Max in general is different over there. AM1 and AM97 are iconic over there. The average person in the US doesnt even know what at AM1 is. I can see why Nike wouldn't want to diminish its status in EU but here in the US over saturation really isnt doing anything but make it easy for me to get pairs on the cheap.

    Jordans here are what Air Max are over there. More Jordans here than Air Max. I see a good many VM and 270s but I rarely see AM1's. Just not a thing here, at least not where I live.

    I'd love to see those come back. Always liked them but every pair I've seen available was super dirty. Guess it's the white or the material, idk. I dig the colorway though.

    That's exactly what I said, isn't it? :rolleyes
    Are you my girl? Twisting my words like that? Your complaining will get you about as far as it would with my girl - nowhere!:rofl:
    They are sneakers, made in asian factories because it's cheaper- we have all paid too much for sneakers- it's why we come on here to chat with likeminded people.
    Let's be honest- we have all been 'OK with mediocrity and thrown our money at Nike anyway'- difference is I don't pretend any different.

    If a shoe looks good, I'll buy it and wear it- shape and materials might not be perfect replica of OG, but if I like it on foot I'm happy.
    It's not that serious.

    All the big brands make stuff for as cheap as possible and most is mediocre- you ever seen where a 'made in italy' product comes from?
    It's not some nonna in her home handcrafting it with traditional tools and premium material- it's basically a factory, like any other factory- primarily filled with migrant workers.

    Complain all you like- but personally, I don't like to worry about things I can't control. Life is too short (and now I've wasted a minute writing this ):lol:

    Peace:emoji_v:

    Watch your mouth folk. You don't even know me. Keep slick talk and criticism to the shoes. Save the personal attacks for when/if we ever have the pleasure of meeting in person.

    You have a right to be ok with mediocrity just like the next man has the right to want perfection.


    It must be getting close to AMD, because this thread is starting to wreak of menstruation.

    Figure I'd throw my comment in as well on the state of AM1

    The real problem is the cost savings efforts on the model. Nike didn't take this shoe seriously despite their advertising message to us. The grs are all so simple with the same poor quality materials and basic color blocking. Look at any of the popular old pairs. Materials are diverse, far superior in quality, and the color blocking clearly took more time to layout the shoe for the manufacturer... this all leads to my favorite pair of current releases being my all black dsm. That shouldn't be the case.

    Side note, I'm digging the light blue AMD pair coming.

    Conflict in this thread is always so confusing...maybe because I have weak comprehension skills in the morning....I can't seem to figure out who's saying what against who else etc.
    I really enjoyed the GRs this past year. The wild mango, Euro JDI being top 2 for me. But then again I don't get as many as most people do in the thread.
    Not sure which side that puts me on.

    Usually this thread is at its worst around AM day so if you think it’s negative now you ain’t seen nothing yet :lol:

    Maybe it won’t be so bad this year tho since there doesn’t seem to be a big drop
