True say, I'm not saying these are the quality of the original 88's.. Far from it, but when kids are willing to pay £300 a pair I'm not gunna complain at a £165 price tag, if I thought they were so shit I would sell on.. no one can say that Nike's not playing it right.. as you can see by the stock prices.. highest they've ever been, and 3x higher than they were in 04

Never tried to say I was born in 1988, where did I? Also I heard that if you're born after 1988 you can never EVER see shoes from 1988 is that true?!

Razor? Laughing out loud I just wanted to know why the brother zoom thought they were shit, I know why Nike are doing this nonsense. I've handled many of the re-releases and they blow, I even did a pick up on some of the 180 Olympics for a member here and didn't even want to send them out, simply because of the disgusting construction. Haven't handled these J3's, but from what I've seen so far, they look a step beyond all the other re-releases, including the recent Huarache's folk rushed to get (they were really bad). Following these comments, I now really want to see them in person…

I wouldn't say they're 'playing it right'. I personally think their approach is purely short-sighted, short-term approaches; continuous re-releases, continuous remodelling of some models (e.g. Roshes, put free run sole on every model) etc etc.
A fair number of people on this forum alone have defected from Nike shoe products, so long term it may have an affect.

That's a pretty good point, but then again you have to think how society is changing their approach to products too, yeah some of the smarter people will stick to the brands that can keep their quality up, but in general most brands have reduced quality in the interest of products, and most people seem not to care. Prime example - Levi's - used to last a life time, not quite the same now..

Sure bro, hit us with a close-up of the upper leather grain, close-up of the back (logo/elephant print/sole) and the tongue. Not going to lie, in your picture they look clean and most these re-release even at a glimpse look trash.
