I think the whole "stealing their royalties" shit is way overblown. Y'all really think shoes like the Satire or rabona are stopping janoski & koston from cashing checks? Those wannabe BA's are gross & the only people buying it are people who already only buy generic shit anyways. Dude has hella new colorways for the regular BA's as well as the R&R versions, he ain't trippin over the lil K-mart pricepoint models

It may be but you can't say that it doesn't water down appeal of their original designs.
It's the principle of it.  To me it's kind of disrespectful of a company to take the design of one of their own riders shoes (which hasn't even been out for that long) and rehash it as something else. 

The way I see it, Nike has the money to test out these rehashes in the market and they can always pull them off the catalog if they don't sell.  Just look at the team editions.  Those were clearly based off the janoski's and they ended up doing pretty well. 

What about Dekline then? All their shoes look exactly the same. Is that disrespectful to Chad Tim Tim or whoever else has a pro model over there? I think they just pump out as much as they can because it's gonna get sold somewhere. Skateshop, foot locker, Ross. Wherever

Yeah that's the idea behind it.  Not everyone goes into the nike store or whatever and knows exactly what they want.  At the end of the day, "any pair of nikes will do."  I'm pretty sure most of the population is like that.  So nike has more to gain by selling the uglier "lower tier" shoes at large chain stores without any royalties attached to it, because it'll probably sell more than the signature shoes at smaller number of skate shops.

I don't know about dekline though.  I suppose if they released some team shoes that looked just like Chad's shoes after they've been out, it's a bit disrespectful, although looking through their catalog, pretty much all their shoes look relatively the same...so it's not really the same principle

i hear nike doesn't give their riders royalties off a shoe.  they get bonuses instead.

Question for anyone that would know...why do some colors of the Koston 2 come in tan/craft boxes and some colors come in the mint green SB box? Not that it's any big deal to me personally, just seems odd. Are some marked for Sports Retailers (i.e. Malls or Foot Locker) and others marked for Skate Shops?

Saw the P. Rod 8s at some sporting goods store. I might buy them if they cost half as much. They seemed super flimsy so the price just seems bonkers (like the BAs and One Shots). At least I can see some of the material and workmanship costs in a pair of Dunks.


Also saw a bunch of BAs at a Zumiez (I was at a mall) and again, I don't get why these are so pricey. I had snagged a pair on sale a month ago but returned them because I felt like they were weirdly tight in the middle and a hair short and I wasn't sure if they'd break in. Maybe I'm just between sizes. Have you guys bought these on the small size to break-in or sized up? Since they are not super padded in the upper it seems like there is less size leeway.

I had to go half a size up in the BA's. the 8's got that thin feeling on the upper but theres basically a sock with the flywire cables on the inside so its a lot more supportive than they look. Ive jumped down shit in mine & they definitely keep your feet cushioned & secure but in all honesty they should only be in the $90-$100 price range by nike standards. i think they set em at that price because they have all the features of the more modern bball shoes which are often in the same price range, but for $130 they should be damn near indestructible (think sky top 3s) and thats just not the case. They're good, but not $130 good. They are really nice for hooping & running tho lol

I like'm! The white ones are fire! I love the classic huaraches and a skate version was something that i never thought. That rubber thing around the colar remembers me of my etnies highlight and that thing is awesome to help the shoe keep his shape and to save it from abrasion of heelflips.

They will for sure be overpriced though...  :-\
