    Word. 
    I had to Google what PE means.
    lol

    I used to go to House of Hoops in Harlem and pick up all sorts of cool PE's.  I always wanted a pair of Rip Hamilton and the Steve Nash Trash Talks but never did.  Awesome kicks.

    Love those Ray Allen’s! I wish they would make some of the Jordan’s/Iverson’s that Kobe wore during his sneaker free agency year.

    Those Rip's are sweet, but just to colorful for ME to wear. I wear the darker colored ones.

    Allen, when he was in Boston, would post pics of his Game Used kicks that he left around town on his IG account for a lucky person to scoop up.

    I wanted to drive up and try to get a pair...

    So. Many. IXs. I guess they were trying to overcompensate for Jordan exiting the league?

    A few years ago JB had a IX campaign where they sold the "alter egos" of them.  I always liked the Kilroys.

    I absolutely hate IX-XIII. I could not see myself ever owning any colorway of those 5 silhouettes. I will never understand the popularity of the XI especially. I get it, it was the 72-10 season, but it just looks so awful to me. It always breaks my heart that my favorite player of all time, Iverson, wanted Reebok to basically copy that sneaker for his first signature line.

    So cool thing about this shoe.  It's called the J2K.  See the triangle patterns? All recycled material.

    These are the Obsidian colorway.  They have a Filbert one too.  I love that color name, Filbert, lol.

    You don't like the XI?!?  I don't know if we can be friends anymore, lol.

    It's THE MOST ICONIC shoe he has worn besides the I.

    I admit that I do not like the IX and only because he never wore them, only in baseball.  The 10 was a brick but looked good.  The XI is just an amazing looking shoe.  The XII Taxi colorway is great and the Flu games are pure fire.  The XIII is one of my faves too.  Flint's, Playoffs, Chutneys and CP3 version are all the colorways that I wear of that one.

    I too loved Iverson but would never wear one of his kicks.  He loved the XI.  He wore them in college.

    Hate them. The wavy patent leather that rides so damn high on the upper is so jarring and clunky. I’ve always been a much bigger fan of sharp cuts rather than curvy/wavy, which might explain why the run of III, IV, and V are my favorites and I don’t like the pairs from the 2nd three-peat that have more rounded and curvy looks to them.

    I know. But hey, it saves me a lot of money not liking them!

    It’s so hard for me to pick between I, III, IV, and V, but if you put a gun to my head? I’d have to go V. The shark teeth are such an amazing design feature.

    Anyone know if those Wizards IIIs were ever released to the public? I would kill for those to get a retro. The True Blue IIIs are probably my 2nd favorite sneaker behind the Grape Vs and I think I like the gold accents even better than the red.

    Perhaps we will see some releases of some Wizards sneakers now that it’s approaching the 20th anniversary of his years with them?

    I decided a bit ago that I am going to wear them.  Most of the time they do retro's anyways.

    Most of the things I've sold I did at peak time so I made out.

    Eastbay had these on clearance in my size so I picked them up. Pretty happy with them. A pair I can wear all the time and not feel guilty about.
