    Though this isnt exactly brand new news, I still can't stop being excited by these. If anyone can score a pair in a US11.5 or US12, contact me at raven@12ozprophet.com and I'll make it worth your while.

    DUNKS

    They kind of got overdone around 1999, but what a masterpiece. The Dunk first appeared in 1985, and it came with all this lofty PR talk about how it would make you fly and improve your…dunk. Nike print ads for it read, "Be true to your school." because it was one of the first sneakers to make special colorways just for college ball teams.

    Real sneaker nerds will always know in their hearts that Dunks are way better than Jordans, and will quietly wait until the hype dies down enough to get them out again.

    hard to say if they're really sold out when Supreme and Rival are the only two stores to ever confirm getting them and selling them.

    whatever happened to KCDC's pairs?
    whatever happened to Nort's pairs?
    whatever happened to the Reed Space's pairs?
    How come Colette in paris has these for sale?
    hmmmmm? Never heard a single person mention getting theirs at any of the above spots, funny cnsidering they were supposed to drop there.

    It's one thing to limit a dunk, cause hype and create a re-sale market. But it's another thing when most of the pairs for a dunk are seemingly backdoored to re-sellers/other shops! That's sadder than most of them going to re-sellers who camp out for them, at least there's some dedication and effort on the re-sellers part with that!

    anyway, you'd seriously drop a G on those Pigeons raven?

    Why get a specific size if you're never going to wear them?

    You'd either have to be super rich or crazy to wear a pair of $300 sneakers.
