I swear to god they had a corporate meeting complaining about them making a product that actually lasted more than six months. Hell probably some poor Vietnamese woman had her pay cut because her stitches were too good. So hey lets fuck the consumer once again and pull this amazing shoe to fit another shitty ass jordan/lebron/whoever the fuck makes them the most money, to the line of shoes.

 

$70 pair of shoes that a beat the HELL out of in a little over 1 and 1/2 years. From school, to work, non stop every day, and still extremely comfortable might I add. And now when they need to be replaced because the material wore through, I can't find them anywhere.

 

Also WHY IN THE LITERAL FUCK does it seem like every single company insist upon never making any shoes in size 15? Seems like everything stops at 13-14. Oh and if you are in between a size, well fuck you and have a nice day because bitch, you can't have a size in a halve above like a size 12, better get some extra thick socks and a box of band aids, and prepare for the blisters. But hey, while you are in the market for some ultra uber awsome ninja sauce socks of doom check out the nike elite socks at the low low price of $14 a pair. That way when your shoes fall apart after two months you can have something to walk around in that has the "swish" on it so you know, you can still have your swag. 

 

Furthermore, why is everything in stupid ass neon everything? Don't they know some people have normal jobs and can't show up wearing high fructose corn syrup yellow and lime? DAFUQ. Why can't we have simple colors like black and red, black and silver, etc. Colors that will go with damn near anything. Anything other then your super awesome swagalicious clothing, perhaps the cloud of axe around your feet will mask the colorful shoes from people that will call you a damned fool for wearing. Call me old fashioned but why can't we go back to suit and ties as the norm of dress wear?

 

And no I will not shit on my shoes because I have to wear them still, and I would love to shit on the nike corporation, but I am sure that is assault in some way shape or form.

i didn't even have my nike shoes for a year yet. massive fucking tear down the side, same with my element shoes. what the fuck has happened to quality the past few years? i remember 3 years ago when you could get shoes that lasted at least 2-3 years. but now? nope, need to spend 40$+ every 8 months on a new pair of shoes.

Stop worrying about how you look, and start worrying about how you play. Get out on the field and play paintball the best you can, not stand at home in front of a mirror trying to figure out if your jersey matches your eyes.

Nike has been doing that for years, They found out that if they remove popular shoes from the floors, then suddenly bring them back 3-4 years down the road, people are more likely to buy 2-3 pairs of them . 

 

what I'm pissed about is the new free trainers, they are total dogshit.  they 2009-2010 models were UNREAL, way better, more flexible and a wider toebox, the new ones are skinny and trap heat in.

I might add this, my Nike sb 6.0s were not worth the $90 I paid for them. About 6 or 7 months later I went back to converse and vans.

Dcs have always been some pretty solid shoes, I've always preferred vans though. I really wish they would bring back the original tnts, the grecos with the hammers on them or the original old skools. Super comfy and long lasting.

To op: Size 15 is like bigfoot, so thats why no one makes that size. 

 

Also, there are plenty of nikes that dont come in a neon color. I have a pair of black and white nike shoes right now.

I also kinda hate the quality of nike right now ive been collecting sneakers for the past 6 years with 50+ sneakers in my closet. But what some people dont realize is that sneakers are meant to be changed every 100-200 miles walked in them which is about 2-3 months of extensive wear. I change my basketball sneakers every month for support reason and at 140+ it isnt cheap but its what i have to do to keep my ankles safe.

You guys actually buy shoes? I work super part time in a baseball proshop. I do a lot of sales work and inventory. Whenever a box is too fucked up to put on the shelf we end up throwing them in the "Employee super 5 finger discount bin." I am a size 14 and the big boxes at the bottom of all the piles tend to get messed up most often. I must have 5-6 pairs of turf trainers that look like normal sneakers. I never pay for shoes ever.

My only complaint shoe wise is that my feet are nearly to big to easily strike a soccer ball.

I can be a bit of a smartass and even an a-hole. Please bear with me.

As a xc runner, I have seen many a shoe and few can compare to nike when it comes to "beating the shit out of your shoes". So far with the 8ish pairs Ive bought in the past years, they have seen plenty of action without having any issues. Granted, I do plenty of research and usually stick to the lines that have always worked for me. Go into any nike store and they have plenty of random "new" shoes that are unheard of, stay away from those. Recently I have seen a decline in quality because of flywire issues being incorporated into new "faster" shoes. You must remember that nike was founded by Bill Bowerman, and most of the "waffle" designs he thought of have been molded into several lines of shoes. FInding the best of his revolutionary ideas in modern shoes is sometimes hard, but I assure you at least a few people in nike have a good idea of what their doing and have always put out good products.

because you arent skating them. i have found that lately the best shoes to skate are PRod Nike SBs. those have been the best shoe to skate. i had a pair of PRod 3s, PRod 5s and my PRod 7s should be here today. those fuckers are tough and comfortable. everything else i skate in falls apart in a couple weeks

I skate as well and my shoes are a glued together. I longboard and street skate. Bought a part of dcs two weeks a go and blew the seems around my pink toes and wore the heels and balls of the feet out pretty substantially. Think its about time I step up to emericas or something.
