I will have to see the leather on those mid panels in person. Right now it looks soft.....in any case the leather looks like better quality than the Statue of Liberty and the Guccis....those were straight up plastic. If you want the good materials then you need to stick to the black boxes and earlier
too many different colors.. theyd be better if they were simpler but you would probably need to see them in person.. im sure the denim looks nice but ya i feel let down twice too.. two good ideas but neither pulled through
I'm not going to lie, i like this shoe a lot. The CW on these is grimy(in a good way) and in all the right places of the shoe imo. These are better than the first BP dunks but as for the 2011 420 dunks well that's to each of it own.
^^^Yea jasper ghost i agree on that statement. it's one thing to make dunks that are related to something controversal(Un-Heavens Gate Dunks). But to go and put a blood bandanna print on a nike shoe thats asking for someone to get hurt or even killed for no reason whatsoever all because of a shoe.
the colourblocking on these is wack as. good combination of colour just all on the wrong places. even my love for slayer isn't enough to pick up these joints. brooklyn projects can suck my dick. 4/20
dunks all the way
I knew it.... and katz on here tried to diss me for saying so. these are not cool to me at all. That slayer shit didn't help either. they should have picked a more universal band, and a shop with a stronger design team.
godammit let down twice this year, first 420s now this no wonder they were only showing up sample pics, man they just wanted hype for ugly ass shoes
shits whack, mos def thinking bout just not spendng money on kicks now, think ima jus buy sum vans, @ nike sb smfh
how do these even resemble reign in blood?????? These are not the colors that even come to mind when listening to reign in blood. Did the people designing this shoe even ever listen to Slayer? Terrible.
first off to TONGAFOOT, this shoe represents the cover of Reign In Blood completely. the colors are spot on, so i don't quite understand your complaint. I don't even listen to Slayer, but I did a simple search on google to find the cover art for the album. you should probably do the same before you say weird stuff like that. as for the shoe, the double swoosh is terrible. if they just omitted the red in the shoe it would be better. make the midsole a solid black, make the swoosh all black as well. at least to me it would be more tasteful that way. it wouldn't be as representative of the album cover, but it would be a better looking shoe.
not sure what cover you are looking at JESUS, but thsoe colors don't match at all...and if they do believe they match then they should have said "Oh Crap, this is going to be an ugly A$$ shoe!" and not make it. Its ugly, straight up
are you serious RUGBYDAWG??? go to GOOGLE, type in "REIGN IN BLOOD SLAYER" and click IMAGES. i don't know how much clearer that can get. the red on the shoes is the red on the cover, the brown on the shoes is the brown on the cover, the green on the shoes is the green on the cover and the black on the shoes is the black on the cover. oh, and just a stab in the dark, the gum rubber outsole is probably the light brown that's on the cover. can someone tell me how to paste pictures on here because i could have easily just pasted a pic of the cover on here to show.
^^^dang RUGBY, starting to think you might be slightly colorblind. the green is on the back heal and i think you might be mistaking the light brown on the cover for yellow. the light brown is represented by the gum rubber outsole. And light blue? where is there light blue on the cover? the picture you posted of the cover is enhanced. the OG cover is really dull, not very vibrant in color, so i think that might be your confusion.
u can hate all u want, but name another shoe company making colorways based on slayer, cheech n chong, beer companies, skate shops, etc. SB still a cut above the rest, and still dedicated to skateboarders (people who actually smoke weed, listen to slayer, and drink beer)
JESUS, well i will admit my confusion with the cover colors...i still see a light blueish green color, but atleast I backed up my argument with an actual idea. Which I felt incorporated the colors as well as the cover and name. It is what it is!
I just wish the actual should would have lived up to the hype!
JESUS...Jesus man Im just saying I don't feel like they represent who slayer is. yeah maybe they do represent the colors of the album....But slayer is much more than some colors. Being that you never listened to Slayer...Im not surprised that you would call my comments weird. I think they need help to become a must cop.
