Welcome to The Nice Kicks Thread! In this thread of awesome, I will bring the world of shoes to the soles of PSU. Every so often (Or when I feel like it) I'll be updating this thread with shoes that are beast mode or about to release. To kick things off, I'll start with one of my all-time favorites about to re-release this coming Friday.
I present to you... The Jordan Retro 11s!


Jordan Retro XI
Retail: $185
Release Day: 12/21/12


This is the OG color in the land of the Retro 11s. A lot of people took to heart the "Space Jam" colorway, but I'm more of an OG guy. OG = Original Color.

Discuss!

[QUOTE="mickice, post: 5969024]$200 pair of shoes? Eh... it's difficult for me to comprehend.
No wonder people rob your shoes in America.


My shoes cost me $50 2yrs ago.[/QUOTE]

It's a hobby for people like anything else. Purses, watches, games, etc. And I feel you on that $50 tip. I just bought these for $50.



I do my New Balance people! Real comfortable shoe. Caught them on sale since they're being fazed out. Originally a $150 shoe. Yes, I'm a boss.

[QUOTE="DeviousOne, post: 5969055]That's saving like a BOSS!!! Lmao most people who by jordans don't even wear them I don't blame them especially after paying 200 bucks for them...[/QUOTE]

We call them sucka-ass niggas. I understand when the true sneaker heads and collectors don't wear them, but a lot of these frauds today make it harder for real enthusiast because of their nonsense. I'm no longer a collector. I've been there and done that shit. My shoe game is down to about 50 pair of shoes. Was at 300 a few years ago, but I've grown older now. No need for all that shit, heh.

Nice shoes Greatness. Me? I'm just wearing a pair of $25 shoes that I've been rocking for the past 6-8 months. For me, as long as they're able to get me from point A to point B in relative comfort, I'm good.

Got a thing for Nike Air Max Skylines recently. Bought a pair for work and was sold not only by the look but the comfort, so I bought another two pairs last week. Love the color combinations, I tend to buy either Nikes or Timberlands but they have to be logo'd up all around the shoe so motherfuckers know how I'm steppin', lol.

My asics probably costed around $200 but I got them with a 40% discount.

I still remember vividly the first time I tried them on at the store. It was like they were made for my feet. Best pair of shoes I owned to say the least. Have been wearing them almost every day for the past year and they are still fault free.

The worst shoe I owned award has to go to my converse, considering the price.

[QUOTE="THUGGEDOUT, post: 5969209]I wouldn't play basketball wearing Jordan's given the price. The first person that steps on them gets a basketball as a third testicle.

You ruin shoes a lot more by wearing them on dirty streets than by playing basketball in a clean Sports hall.

Yeah thats what i also like about them. They are light comfortable and have a very clean and slick style. I have a white pair of those, had also a pair of dark blue ones but they wore out.
