i didn't own any Silver Box SBs until about a month ago.....got my first Pink boxes less than a year ago.....

but i bought my first pair of Dunks in 2003....

the only reason i didn't buy more SBs before they got huge is because i didn't know of anywhere to get them besides eBay, and i didn't have a reliable source to get my 'fake spotting' from......

SBs are a huge fad right now because the skater look is in.....

Dunks are SO much more than just the Nike SB line dude...

they've been around since what, 1985?? they were released before Jordan Is were, and the Is were designed after the Dunk, and SBs weren't introduced until 2001-2002, right?

i wouldn't really call that a fad......

yea, there are people wearing them because they're popular, but your collection of SBs doesn't say how long you've been interested in a model of shoe that has so many variations....
Dont try to school me on the history of dunks i could give a fu*k less ...and put this in perspective young lad. 5 years ago you couldnt catch a pair of dunks in a foot locker or Finishline or anywhere. Now there everywhere in loud, busy, hypebeast colors.

Hears some history for you. Nike owns Jordan brand right??? The thing is Jordan Brand has been carrying nike on its backs for 20 years now. Nobody was even thinking about collecting shoes before Jordan brand. Jordan brand created this whole exclusive, limited kick buisness we buy into now.

The earlier SB lines made it possible for nike to charge people ridiculous prices for limited dunks, premium dunks, gr dunks or any other bullsh*t color scheme dunk you can commonly find in your local stores.

Heres the same example you kinda gave me...TImbaland boots have been around forever right...during the early to mid 90's they had a boom in sales...why?? Because it was a fad and hype.

Now you got young n*ggas with 10 pairs of shoes in their closets and all of a sudden they're sneaker head, collector gurus

Jordan Brand>Air Max>Dunks:greetings10:

Oh im gettin rid of some sweet sh*t 2 holla at me...

jordans are nasty and besides a couple pairs all of them have looked horrible
why do people buy them? Because they are Jordans and because they are EXPENSIVE.....have them go down to 50 dollars a pair and no one would buy them
i have an acquaintance that is all into them since high school, buying the new ones that come out...all that and he is 24 years old and he still buys them
it gets to a point when people have to realize that you have to grow up and leave this "fad" to the little kids in elementary or the kids in high school who want to impress
by the way, i have croc shoes that costs 250 and some that cost 450 so money aint the issue

i bought my pair in 2003 (5 years ago) in a Footlocker (or Footaction, can't remember which)

your logic is fu*ked.....

'people are hopping on them now so everyone who wasn't buying them when they first came out is just on them for hype'

yea, there's PLENTY of dudes wearing Dunks cause they're in, especially SBs, but just because someone wasn't collecting since they came out doesn't mean they're a hype beast.....

and as far as the bright colors goes......

that's not for the hypebeasts, that's for fashion......don't know if you noticed or not, but EVERYTHING was coming in bright a.ss colors for a while......the 80s came back, Nike started doing concept shoes (which was fu*king retarded IMO) from the 80s......

the 720s (video game), Thrashin' (movie), Joe Strummer (Clash guitarist), Appetite for Destructions (Guns n Roses)

yea, they're trying to cash in, but the logic 'Nike is doing it to cash in so the shoes are wack' is no stupider than 'everyone is wearing Jays so they're wack'

Nike doesn't really jack up the price on sh*t THAT much.......these SBs don't RETAIL for $200, they RESALE for $200......you go to a skate shop in a place where there's not MAD hypebeasts, you're not going to wait in line for the shoes and you're going to get them for $75-80 and sh*t......

all Nike does is say 'oh sh*t. we sold these out in 3 hours. if we make even less of them, they'll sell out quicker and people will be in bigger demand for the next ones'............

Jordan Brand didn't create that, their parent company did.....

i worked at footlocker from 2003-2006 and we had dunks the whole time I was working there! even when they took the jordans out of footlocker for a few years, we still had dunks there. And all thru out my life, I remember people having dunks, but I don't remember dunks being considered hot...at least not where I went to school at. Dunks was like the cheaper alternative to air force 1s because at that time they were considerably cheaper. Like the "cool dressed" cat would have forces and the cats that was struggling to keep up fashion wise would get the dunks if they parents ain't wanna pay for the forces.

Not to diss dunks, I have a few pairs myself when they started stepping the color/material game up on them. This is just to the thread starter for saying Jordans are wack because everybody has them. I'm just showing that everybody going out and getting dunks now, but for awhile, at least where I grew up at, they were the b-level shoe.

People hate on what's popular. Everyone wants to be a trend setter, or be in their own space. It goes for music, games, clothing, their whole life style is far left.

There are those whom hate success and that's just how it is. Those people are just bitter that whatever they wear or whatever they do doesn't garner as much attention as the latest trend or fad.

Jordans, no matter how ugly they look epitomize everything Michael Jordan was on the basketball court- The GOAT. That's why many wear the shoes. You don't need to know he won 6 championships, 5 MVP's, DPOY, along with his numerous accomplishments to wear the shoes. They may just remember him playing. OR better yet, they may just like they way they feel or look. Respect that at least.

If you were trying to be fashionable with them, there's a lot of shoes that look better out there. People forget that these are still basketball shoes and they're designed with the intention to support the feet with the best technology available. Design is secondary.

Keep that in mind, if you judge J's because you're trying to mix and match an outfit, then you already lost. That's not what they're for.
