I'm worried the quality is gonna be shitty like the rereleased OG Janoskis. Every pair I got, the suede fucking ripped.

I want the black/navy Gino or Bandaids again. Plz Nike.

Glad to see blazer low back with the original sole texture.  Blazer lows are my all time favorites, but the past few colorways in the GT's have sucked.  Not into that super fuzzy looking suede that looks like some shit is growing on them.  Stoked that the bruin SE is back too.  I don't know why Nike can't just leave some of those basic colors always out like Vans does.

I think in 2017, the blazer low will have rubber toe caps, and CK's are gone.

Yes, oscar the grouch fuzzy suede is weird looking.

I really liked the GT Blazer but my black/black went to shit in two sessions too. They're floppy shoes in general but the entire structure turned to mush after the second session. They're like thick socks in the bad way. The suede would've had a hole in it after another session had I kept skating them.

-Nike-Trainerendor-

Since when did they drop the prices from around $90-$100 to now $70?

No complaining on that part.

They're cutting the CK that quick? You'd think it's been doing quite well. And it was the shoe that started off the whole rubber toe cap craze, apart from Converse, obviously.

Ok, the CK is basically a Blazer with a toe cap, there isn't much of a diffrence. But one of the reason's I've been hyped on that shoe cause it's Cory's shoe. I think it's awesome that a guy like him has a shoe on Nike.

it's on every sale section of every skateshop website that sells shoes. i've only held the shoe once and that toecap they used is tremendous and turns me away from it real quick.

If nike had launched the CKs two years earlier it would have been sold out everywhere. Nike is blowing it harder, day after day.

In Spain they even got rid of the reps !!!, and shop orders are now made online.

The internet has made skate product reps pretty much useless.  Shop dudes know what sells (colors, brands, etc.) in their area and can just buy it online.

Also the fact that the shoe is $90-$95. What the hell..

That shoe should be at least $60, tops. Maybe $70, like the Janoksi price when first launched in '09.

Arent Reps supposed to offer competitive rates/ deals/ special discounts etc.  I work in HVAC and our equipment reps are the ones who give us the deals and anything ordered online is typically 15-30% more expensive than going through the rep.  I would assume the same in the skate business  ???(could be wrong)

I'm really curious about the future of Nike sb.
Facts from this year:
- The design team working at the SB program seems to suffer from a lot of turnover (to be polite)
- Their catalogs are pure shit appart from the occasional Dunk, Bruins or Blazers good colorways,
- Jason Hernandez is not working for them anymore
- They are getting rid of they reps in Europe
- A lot of shops have stopped or are about to stop carrying the brand

This shit is seemingly going nowhere, appart from the Janoski's, their shoes aren't moving from the shelves: Koston 3, CKs, IW dunks, Hyperfeel shits etc...
I know that nike is marketing driven rather than product driven but it seems that their strategy to sell the hyperfeel is the same used to sell the lunarlon (increased boardfeel, increased protection, flexibility, light...)

Hyperfeel
:  "Hyperfeel technology continues to change the game with enhanced boardfeel and top-of-the-line impact protection, making strong advances in our ongoing battle against pesky heel bruises."
Lunarlon (outsole): " Springy cushioning that helps absorb impact without added weight, and a modified herringbone outsole that maximizes grip and boardfeel "
You could literally switch the two sentences and sell the same shit.
Can't wait to hear about their Exogrip, Featherfit, Zoom Stratolight insole/outsole...
