You must have gotten them from Goodfoot then cause they sometimes name their shoes wrong - they put their own stickers on the box. Nike doesn't actually name their shoes. People give them names. Nike just puts "SB High Premium" and whatnot.

Originally previewed back in the year, we now get a closer look into the upcoming “Savage Beast” Air Force 1 from Nike’s string of Halloween releases. Playing off the “beast” theme, the kicks will feature a full pony hair upper and midsoles combined with a nicely accented Beige canvas swoosh and heel tab with Red “Savage Beast” embroidery.

They seem to, different stores seem to have different stock, and shit can sell out fast. They overcharge, but they get away with it due to exclusivity. Goodfoot is just as bad for that. I'd honestly suggest online, usually a fair bit cheaper, and definitely a better selection.

Yes right... asics and onitsuka tiger, were they 2 separate companies before and merged? What's the story here? Is Onitsuka Tiger the trendy line of Asics?

Also whats the difference between etnies and etnies plus? Whats the difference between rbk bbc's and bbc's? Seems to me that etnies plus and bbc's are the more expensive lines?

I have always been an AF1 guy...so most of my faves will reflect that...Aside from the last 2...

No offence but I HATE fusions and any sort of hybrid Jordan sneaker - Flight 45, Sixty Plus, Six Rings, 2.5, 16.5, 9.5, True Flight (too similar to the VII), etc. I also hate the butchering of the Jordan 1s with the plethora of colourways released/being released. So disappointed with that and also disappointed with JB's lack of quality control, if it even exists...

But i was told they were a limited edition color. Don't know if it was some sales pitch or not, that didn't sell them for me, but keep an eye out.
Im sure they are out there still.

I'm not a fan of the fusions either, but I'm not a fan of AF1's either :dunno:

The clearwaters definitely pop for sure man, I find them alittle tight compared to any other style the same size though :thumbsdow

and VERY nice tiffanys and those AJ3's look like they're DS!

It was originally the Taxi AJ XIIs fused with the AF1 mids then all of a sudden they went ape shit with all the combos and colourways. That's what irked me a little. 1 is good but the mass amounts they are producing now is disgusting. But you know, I understand it is a business and motto is to sell. As you said, you're not a Jordan kind of guy but JordanEG6 is and I can probably guess he doesn't own a single pair of fusions or hybrids, but I could be wrong.

Have a pair of these in Baby Blues, worn badly, wish I would've saved them, but I needed a ball shoe for high school. I wasn't a collector back then. Wish I could find a pair of these now in any colour!

http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p88/signature7/hyperflight_red_blk.jpg

I'm wearing these right now. Love the look with any pants. They get dirty fast though, I'm on my 3rd pair.

I'm not a sneakerhead like many of you guys on beyond. But I do have a collection of shoes that I really like, most probably wouldn't. A few jordan xx and mostly Nash Nike Shoes.

Both of these shoes below, i've never had the pleasure of seeing them in real life no less the stores. I really wish I had the chance to buy these, I'd pay a pretty penny for them now. Nike Zoom flight turbine, and Nike Zoom Ultraflight respectively.

It was the 25th Anniversary of the AF1 and the 23rd Anniversary of the Air Jordan...

Vouch.
For EK, it was concept that caught his eye, and not the shoe itself, considering he is a huge AF1 fan. And at the beginning, the concept of an AF1, one of the most popular classics in footwear, fused together with Jordan Brand, the most popular brand in the industry, was golden.

It was originally the Taxi AJ XIIs fused with the AF1 mids then all of a sudden they went ape shit with all the combos and colourways. That's what irked me a little. 1 is good but the mass amounts they are producing now is disgusting. But you know, I understand it is a business and motto is to sell. As you said, you're not a Jordan kind of guy but JordanEG6 is and I can probably guess he doesn't own a single pair of fusions or hybrids, but I could be wrong.

I do own a couple pairs. I bought a couple AJF 12s (Playoff and Taki) and stopped as soon as I knew where the line was going. Bizarre colorways and the barrage of fusions that seem to get uglier and uglier are not something I want to be a part of, personally.

I also own a pair of OG released Spizike's and Melo 1.5s when they first hit the shelves before I knew where the hybrid/Spizike line and .5 series were going. It pisses me off where JB is headed, as well as the industry as a whole, it's becoming a commercialized fad with new brands up and coming hoping to get a piece of the footwear pie while it lasts (Supra, Creative Rec, Gourmet, Greedy Genius etc etc.), which BTW is all garbage IMO.

The quality and standards of sneakers by JB and Nike are getting lower and lower. I can pull out pieces from back in the day and compare them to what Nike makes today and the quality clearly isn't the same.

'09 is a great year to quit. If some one can buy my entire lot in one shot, I'll gradly retire.

Agreed. Except, those ones are Dark Obsidian XIIs, which is awesome colorway. My favorite actually.

AM95s and 97s are the comfiest Max's I've worn, they suck to run in, but so nice to lounge around with those on.

To each their own I guess, but I really rated these. They were superlight, but they felt like paper with absolutely no cushioning. LOL.

Another one of my faves. Found the box for it recently. My very first pair:

To be fair though, Supra is an actual skate brand with real skate shoes with vulcanized soles and the sort not like the Dunk SB line. They do however have the NS line.

These are French Blues, as I mentioned in the last post, the ones Nick posted are Obsidians. Very nice colorway none the less, my faves as well.

And I dunno, I still don't like Supra. Not a fan of super-high tops.

Yeah they're really sucked as a basketball shoe, now that I think of it. Very thin stuff, very little support. I wore them because I thought they were "cool". I was young and brash. I'd like to have a pair now because I like the look.

A lot of people would say I had ugly ball shoes, I guess i have a weird taste but I don't mind. I really regret wearing some of them now, I had these (jetflight) but wore them to shit. Blue and white though. Not a bad pair to play in, very light but comfortable with lots of padding, the bad though, I rolled my ankle pretty bad a few times, seemed like it lacked lateral support.

If i could do it all over again, I'd just buy some shaqs to play in and case the rest. LOL

Kicksology.com went defunct around 2004(?) and I remember because I read their article about their last hoorah.

Also, the reason why I mentioned And1 is because I find their shoes uncomfortable but Kicksology exposed me to And1's sick colorways such as the NYK Sprewell shoe. The color scheme was justifiable enough to get them.

Unfortunately, I was a junior high kid who was broke and couldn't afford these limited edition shoes (they had a collection where they had specific city colors!) Now I can't even find a picture for it. :thumbsdow

I have a bias towards And1.

Albeit a guy called Nick does them now, not Prof. K. Was the Sprewell shoe the one with the air bag and the zipper?

Edit: And the sneaker reviews are not done in the same format either.

The hyper flights are my favorite b ball shoe of all time. I've never had a shoe with such great ankle support/grip yet not restricting on movement with that flexing spine. They look great but they are even better in use so don't worry about wearing them out.

I have a beat up pair of white/blue and I just picked up a pair of all blacks from the Nike Store in San Fran this summer. I think you may be able to buy them off Nike online.
