I was waiting for someone to post those un Jason Lee shoes . Here comes the flood of complaintsÖmainly the price. Yíall broke and tired. Go home. Save money, come back when you can hang.

You know I was too quick on the trigger here. I retract my statement. The shoes do suck. The price is not justified. The brand doing it is wack and boring.

Iíd rock those Kenzo shoes if not for the price.

They really arenít that terrible a design company. Not sure about recently, but they used to put out some nice  polos.

About Axion, I purchased a few pairs when they were hugely marked down, and they really arenít bad shoes at all. They just massively suck at marketing, and canít seem to figure anything out beyond production.

French fashion company Kenzo under head designer Nigo from BAPE is doing a $325 US Jason Lee.


Bummer they're so expensive. Also bummer that an expensive fashion house and making a better shoe than all the skate brands.

Now thatís a shoe!
Maybe thereíll be some sale pairs on Mr Porter or something like that at some point  ;D

Depending how it sells end does some deep discounts on stuff if you watch for it. Was looking for another pair of those tisch tennis skatan did a few years back the other day and while sold out now the last prices had been heavily discounted according to my little sale plug in. If you see this skatan sell me more pairs!

Itís funny they sell these for 325. Iím pretty sure airwalk used to sell a slightly modified version of J Lees in the mid 2000s for like $25 at big 5. Be interesting to see if that airwalk revamp with Tony rumor is true if theyíd come after Nigo for This. Or is shoe design law pretty lax ?

I think the rule is you can't own a general design only the tech shit (air bubbles, cushion etc) or if it's a specific new way the shoes are actually made. I think it also only lasts 10 years or something which is why the first pro shoe with an air bubble (es Koston) came out ten years after the Nike air Max. (There may have even been a thing where the first releases didn't have the bubble because they had to wait)

Guessing because it is a very simple style of casual shoe, there wouldn't be a whole lot anyone could do about it, given how out of the market Airwalk is right now, or at least has been in recent years, compared to when they were huge and protected their designs very fiercely.


The shoe is so very similar in all aspects, heel area and sole slightly different, but as I said, I had to do a double take on it when I first saw it.  Not dissimilar to the DC Way 1 or the Duffs shoes I also had back in the day.









Not sure if this is still current, but have a look at all the J Lee shoes here:

Saw these on the slappy god's (abe bethal) instagram story. He just recently opened a shop so im assuming they are going to carry them. I dont have any info on them but figured someone else might....Anybody know anything about Opus or what it is all about? Shoes dont look too bad from the picture. I wonder who is behind this company.

The sole on the Opus shoes looks too narrow, unfortunately I wonít be trying them, even though the simplicity of the black mid is really nice.

Yeah, just the midfoot to heel looks narrow to me - but Iím one of those people who think the 440 is too narrow so feel free to disregard my take  ;D

The Opus Mid has my eye. A version with a black upper, black foxing tape, and a gum outsole would get my money.

I would also like an Emerica Pillar in that colorway.

Until then I'll keep skating the mid-top Tyshawns.

I like it too and have felt the same way about the pillar. Iíd like the opus more if that canvas patch was a breathable mesh. If I see those though Iíd pick them up , thatís a classic shoe design. So long as the materials for the upper are quality. The sole looks iffy but Iíve learned thatís an issue with small brands. Only state has had a sole I liked out of small brands, even the much loved HUF shoes had that terrible generic china sole

The 440 is pretty narrow in the midfoot/heel section of the sole, to be honest. Toe box not as much. I personally felt them to be too narrow overall so I ditched the two pairs I had from that crazy 2020 sale.

Vulcs carry a different sole shape from cups due to construction but these look rounder to me than not, which is a plus.

Is all their product overpriced, or it just seems that way to me here in AU because shipping pretty much doubles the overall cost of anything?

Curious more than anything, but I have never really looked very closely at any of their stuff and just heard others saying that, so it would be interesting to know from anyone elsewhere in the world.
