Haven't had a pair of sneakers in years, always wearing either dress shoes or Sperrys, but dove in and bought some Air Max 90s and I'm loving them.

These worked out well because I wanted both the TN and some 97s, so a hybrid of both was a no brainer. Plus I dig the hits of 3m, shiny material and simple colorway.

They actually sold out within 3-4 minutes, I was surprised as I didn't think they were hyped at all. I'll post some on feet shots when I get them in about a week.

I think every sneakerhead is gonna be going for those 97/1's, haha. Everything from the material to the pastel colors is a big yes. Perfect summer pair.

It doesn't help that the small batch that already released is selling for well over $1k. It will definitely be a battle to get a pair, I want them myself.

I had a pair of Air Max 93s back in '06/'07 when they first re-released them, are those collectible in any way now?

I'm looking forward to the 98's, actually hoping they reissue the white/ team orange, had those back in the day and would love another pair. As far as the hype kids go, I think whatever pair drops now is gonna be their "favorite pair ever", seems that was the trend when I had social media. With any luck runners get replaced by tennis kicks or something so I can go back to picking up pairs without the hassle or headache.

Possibly Potty- which colorway were they?

If you don't wear/ want them anymore, they may be worth putting on eBay or Grailed. Older stuff you can't find anymore in good condition usually sells pretty quick.

All I've been wearing are my Japan triple black NMDs and my North Face x Vans. Cement 3's and wool 97's have been sitting in their boxes.

93s arent hype at all, go for retail and even below often

kids will act like there in the know when shit starts to drop with the 98s since they have the 97 lower

I think these and the university red are the only two confirmed OG colors so far. I really want the team orange but will gladly settle for these.

Sneaker Bar Detroit- it's a site that posts about upcoming releases and they're pretty accurate.

Did you see the new country camo (tiger stripe) 97s that are dropping on late December?

Image

Im digging them but they won't be easy to grab.

I'll probably grab a pair if I can then sell them if I don't like them in hand. Imagine they're gonna be hyped as they'll prob be the last 97 to drop for some time.

That would have been ideal- or at least on a pair with a more subtle color scheme. Definitely gonna try for them, have a feeling they'll be better in person than the pics make them out to be.

Word. I'm pretty sure they're still in a closet at my parents' house so I'm going to see if I can find them while I'm visiting for Thanksgiving.

Regarding turd burglar's post, That makes sense that those and the Air Max 180s would likely be less collectible given their far thinner lines and more classic runner shape, which seems to be the opposite esthetic of what Nike had been pushing out over the past 5 years.

The hype thing is so weird now- I've seen classic pairs sit and atrocious pairs fly off the shelf and sell out in literally a few minutes. It seems a lot of these young kids see kicks as "an investment" while us older people just want them to wear.

Makes me regret all the 90s runners I've tossed over the years. Got rid of pairs with flat air bubbles because back then the concept of replacing the sole was still foreign, now you just buy a similar reissue and it's like $45 to get done.

I would think that would be real tree camo, these are tiger stripe (Vietnam era).

Sick- you really can't go wrong with camo Air Max, I'm definitely gonna try and bag a pair.

A friend texted me a better clear pic of the US "country camo" 97- I need these.

Also, I guess my Air Max Plus 97 shipped today- pretty stoked on them.

I noticed that- if I don't get these I wouldn't mind the other ones with the black sole, think they may be Germany?

Also digging those STASH x Spiridons that are dropping end of the month. Nike is killing it right now.

I'm still bummed I didn't grab a pair of the OG colorway, they're great summer kicks and comfy. I mean for $70 I'd grab a pair to sit on till the weather gets nicer in April/ May.

I don't under UPS/ Nikes shipping arrangement- my pair of AM Plus 97's shipped Tuesday (21st) night and on the UPS ground map it said they should take 3 days. Nike is telling me I should get them the 28th, a week later.

Definitely one of the most underrated AM models- hoping to bag either Team Orange or Gundams.

Nike is going pretty hard these days.

Wish they would rerelease the '96 Tailwinds:
