busted them out for the clean lines and mod color way. White upper and black midsole.they are comfortable unlike air max 90's. ONE Problem with this model. Now i need to future proof my kix. the patent leather creases and looks bad quick. White patent turns yellow and they end up as gardening kix. Icey soles are a flat out bust. these i thought had non of those flaws that have me wasting $. Theres a white plastic peice in the lacing system that i know will go yellow so these need to stay boxed and dont take them to the movies to be stepped on. These are sickly, very nice. good cushion and add an inch to your game.
Pros: cool colors, stylish, comfortable
Cons: gets dirty fast

Thes are so close to ekin 2009 2008 huarache's. that cloud like pillow feel. these are so comfy you want to bite the soles. these are sweet and the clear sole's have grip for days. the lines are clean & the shoe is well made. I rock them for b'ball and they are nnniiiccceee. I gave shoe jocker's something to do that afternoon at the gym. I want the black ice model now cause i have read that the removeable in sole is made of mcro G also so with aging knee's likes mines you have to go with cushion all the times. Word up - get your dunk smacked.
Pros: comfort, did i say comfort, grip - traction
Cons: no history

Q1 have you ever seen these on an nba court. i gots the gasol pe (lakers sick) and air atack black n purp. gasol didnt wear his and boozer wasnt either. they have poor grip, little arch support (lj 7 tambien) and are floppy on the foot. defenitaly a let down for hoopin. I played three games in them and the entire time i was asking myself why didnt i bring my foamposites. the runner kicks are sweet comfort. these look good as street shoes & leisure but for hoopin kicks theirs much better ballin shoes available. Q1 answer - no.
Pros: look good
Cons: bad hoopin shoe

hands down top of the line comfort. the zoom unit in the heel gives back and even after hours of ballin. compared to the hyped up hyper hypes heel cushion those are toys. the forefoot pad is sweet and solid. Lacing down to the toe knuckle like the bakin's and more air's. these are top of the food chain for nike. My og 97's were stollin in 99 and these are like old friends coming over to listen to beats. only gripe is that i wish they would stop it with the clear outsoles. the clear grabs dirt and they become clouded and tinted, we should stick to solid colors. the 1/2 cent does not compare in performance to this shoe. this is an og with its own swagg. pricey yes but the only competitor would be the huarache 2010 & thats a distant 2nd place
Pros: durable, comfortable, makes you wanna dunk

These shoes run a full size too big. Just bought 11.5 in al black and also tried on a 11 in the green and still felt that the 11 are big because when you lace them down the arch feelproper but the tip of the shoe feels like it need to be closer to your toe. the cushioning is great. heve yet to go hoopin (love hoopin in expensive kicks) so i dont have that side of the story YET. Expensive shoe its a definate want as opposed to need. Cranberry showing up later and most likely will look like Uptempo 97 Urban feds which are candy like sweet.
Pros: stylish, durable, comfortable
Cons: full size too big and my bro agrees

the kicks look great next to my gun and the patent leather shines nice next to my bullets. The leather softens the retired 26 year old crossover that retires defneders. the shoes are great for getting hang time because the Zoom air units provide a welcomed landing. We dont rock them with jeans, we save the jeans for sandals with bottle openers and call in delivery pizza and play ball again on sundays. - The Kicks are dope - 3rd best Jordan out there next to 2010 and CP3's. Got Cash - get em'
Pros: sweet, stops other addictions
Cons: wont make you dunk, think you can dunk

Click here to read an in-depth review of this item on our blog! The Jordan Icons hoops shoe was inspired by the Jordan brand's many milestones throughout the years. This shoe celebrates their achievements with a fusion of elements from the Air Jordan XX and XX3. The leather and synthetic upper is designed with stitched and perforated patterns reminiscent of the XX3, while the full-length Phylon™ midsole provides cushioning like the XX. All of these features sit on top of a rubber sole with an aggressive herringbone traction pattern for an elite performance.

I got the Patent RED and Patent Blue for the Hawks respect. Saw them at HOH and was suckered in. There sweet on the shelf and well ........ here we go. They run a half size big. I got the blue at full price in 11.5 and after playing 5 games in 3 different gyms these shoes wore me out which is wrong.Fast brakes down court was making wonder what the blank i did picking these up, my legs were Just pounding and my knees were on the ropes. The 5 worst defensive games were had wearing these kicks.The traction is sub par to other shoes i typically wear. The tread on the icons is minimal and now pointless - just enough to get you to the liquor store and back. I got the Red in size 11 and that may have been the trick because i think my pressure points are now in line with the tread and i feel the pods giving back (theres no air cush in the kicks) i have played 3 games in the red icons and there starting to become more friendly. i think its a bit sad that if the kicks are not a perfect fit that you may lack in cush, i got the CP3's and theya re sized correct. If you want the POD cush i would recomend the CP3's and they have superior grip and control compared to these. The Icons are definatly sweet on your feet for those who'm shoe jock from time to time or by the hour, but after those 5 games i had to break out the AF25's for a week just to get my legs back.

These are NBA Standards for one reason. You can beat the heck out of them and they keep performing. They are soft even after 50 games. They run about a hals size big. The have zoom in the front and rear. They have huge grip and stop cut cross ginsu style. theres little fingers on the outsole that grab the court (almost like kobe 5's) the kobe 5's are awesome but i cant wear them for days on end my legs get too sore. the H 2010 can go all day and go drinking at night. the inner booty withthe bubble feature are very comfy on your foot. for high tops i have hyper rize / dunk/ max, jordan 16.5, H2008 & 9, KD1's, and these smoke those kiks. I just wish maybe they caould fuze the Airfoce 25's full lenght zoom n' stacked max heel with these out soles. Dont want to be bad influence but bust these and save other shoe money for booze. I have the white black patent toe and the Rudy G PE's - Word, step up and get your dunk smacked

I am a shoefool. i dont have a nice car but i have a grip of shoes. Thse cp3's perform good. For a guards shoe these shoes make you feel taller than the kobe 5's. must be the imbedded pod cushion which is nice as you feel them bouncy in the heel and forefoot right where the out sole has the design. The entire outsole has that fundamental cortez like traction but tighter. The shoe lacing system is stiff out of the box and when locked down the shoe fits nice. The pods are totally different than my precious zoom. these kiks have a "GO" feel to them. when headed down court for the fast break you dont get that pounding sensation it is a fluid transition thats not jarring to your knees. I forgot to talk about the most important thing. GRIP. the shoe has grip and can stop on a 1/2 cent like kobe 5's do. as of late these shoes have become one of my favorites along side Huarache 2010 (NBA Standards) kobe 5 lebron 7 Playoff and Lebron 6's. i think as far as the jordan line is going these are the best available. i love the 16.5 look but the lack on the court. note that the cp3 is dropping in a true jordan 3 black version that will be ill -
Pros: cushion
Cons: can be stiff out the box

somebody finaly woke up and made the correct size. This is 90's sizing with room and better than cheap NBA replicas. The shoulder cut ends at about 3/4 of shoulder not like square. Shirt gives definition to shoulders and the armpits dont hand a droop. Very similar to Lakers,Raptors REAL game shirt. Very nice compared to even NIKE jerseys which the sizing is too unpredictable.

 Jordan AJ 2010 - Men's
Jordan AJ 2010 - Men's
Click here to read an in-depth review of this item on our blog! In celebration of the Jordan brand's 25th Anniversary, MJ has collaborated with shoe designers Tinker Hatfield and Mark Smith to create the newest addition to the Air Jordan collection: the Air Jordan 2010. According to MJ, "The Air Jordan 2010 marks the future of the Jordan Brand and proves there are no limits to what this Brand is capable of doing." The Air Jordan 2010 proves his point by not only paying homage to the brand's heritage, but also passing on the legacy to other Team Jordan athletes like Dwyane Wade, who will be the first to debut the 2010. Taking Jordan's "ability to see through his opponents" literally, Hatfield and Smith created the brand's first see-through basketball shoe, featuring a unique, transparent, perforated TPU window in the side. The 2010 isn't without plenty of high-performance features, either. The flexible leather and synthetic no-sew upper offers a more anatomical fit so players can sprint faster, with perforations that are engineered to be both breathable and responsive while representing the iconic style of an Air Jordan. Modern players need to be faster at every position, and the AJ 2010 is built for speed with its lightweight performance design and lower profile for a more responsive shoe in tune with today's hyper-athletic players. Air Jordans have always reflected MJ's desire for a clean toe and natural movement, and the 2010 takes it a step further with basketball's first-ever unobstructed independent forefoot cover. The 2010's transparent signature window provides a sculpted fit and also reveals a hint of MJ's beloved Carolina Blue on the cushioned sockliner. The asymmetrical collar height provides better ankle support and also contains a separately molded, stitched-in unit that wraps around the ankle for a better fit. The mesh underlay beneath the forefoot cover lets toes move freely and breathe like never before, while the full-length Phylon™ midsole with Zoom Air™ units stacked in the heel adds a crucial layer of impact protection, borrowing from low-profile running shoe cushioning for better court feel. A little something extra was added to the midsole – a graphic that contains a special hidden message from MJ for those who are true to the game. The AJ 2010 is rounded off with a thinner rubber sole for an incredibly responsive ride, with certain colors featuring a clear sole to reveal the Zoom Air™ cushioning at the heart of the shoe. And just when you think it can't get any better, the Air Jordan 2010 continues Jordan's breakthrough in sustainability efforts by using a Considered Design, which avoids the use of harmful toxins and uses environmentally friendly materials. Wt. 16.8 oz.
 

What type of suede is used in this shoe - as in what animal does it come from or is it synthetic? Thanks.

synthetic - its called nuebuck or fosuede it came out in the 90's and now its almost been perfected to make us think we are rocking animal skin.

 Jordan Melo Future Sole M6 - Men's
Jordan Melo Future Sole M6 - Men's
This stand-out hoops shoe was designed by the winner of Nike/Jordan brand's Future Sole Contest – Austin Jermacans – and rocked by Melo himself. The Jordan Melo Future Sole M6 is a highly anticipated release for Carmelo Anthony fans, Jordan collectors and designers alike, showcasing both young talent and high performance in one elite shoe. The upper is a combination of full-grain leather and synthetic materials, including mesh, a netting texture and quilted details that come together to make this quite a distinctive style. Other features include an internal and external lacing system, bold quarter overlay, gold details on the Jumpman logo and back of the heel, a Phylon™ midsole with Zoom Air™ for cushioning and support and a herringbone rubber sole for traction.
 

How does internal lacing system done?

can internal & external lacing system be done simultaneously on these shoes?sorry, as I don't really have an idea.
no. outer lacing think vans which is normal. internal is between your sock and the material of the shoe. a shorter lace can be used cause typically the lace does not cover as much area and is quicker to tighten just pull. its a design thing you can not do both.

For the guys that are 5'9'', will you ever have the college shorts that aren't so long?

I loved the not so long nike twill shorts. thank you.
The replica models that are screen printed not sewn are not as long. Issue is that the only way you can tell on eastbay is if the price is about $15 less. the replicas are single ply but are more comfortable to play in than 2 ply.
