    Hmmmmm…. I say Nike coukd do better with quality and maybe get some more stuff in a lower price range, but other than that I have no issues.

    As for fusions, I think fusions are not a bad idea and half of them are pretty cool (so are the hybrids) so I don’t see the fusions as a cause for beating up Nike or Brand Jordan

    im with everyone on this one biggest thing are fusions and not just JBxAF1 lets not forget the pippen fusions and a few other nike creations…

    FUSIONS/all the other Jordan CRAP!!!! (like everyone else has already stated.)

    And even more importantly……….HOH/Mercer exclusives and releases.
    Everyone deserves a chance at pearl foams and parra am1s not just New Yorkers.

    Nike needs to bring back regional and store exclusives. Nothing is better than making sneakers that are only available to certain regions . It helps build up the sneaker scene in areas and makes people want to search beyond the internet for sneakers.

    fusions are going anywhere as long as they keep selling.
