I like them. My money is currently tied up in “The Year of Jordan” and other releases such as the Eggplant Foamposite, those hybrid Footlocker exclusive Air Max Plus Tn x Air Max 360 and those Skytops and those Creative Recreations and not to mention the grown and sexy shoe I need to go with my casual wear and suits… (ok that is a lot of footwear purchasing lol) so I don’t think I will be getting them, but i do believe they are collectibles and would be great on the court.

I should start to play tennis.
