Those are sick @adam313 they remind me of the Hender Scheme version."hender scheme.jpg"

This entire sub forum makes me vibrate with history. Jordans were my first obsession. I had over 100 pairs, most of them that I kept new and sold off once I "got out of the game".  I wore Air Jordan everything for years. Back in the late 90's and early 2000's, the new releases would never make it to the store shelf. they'd be sold out before the store opened. It's part of the reason i got out of the game, they made too many color variations that weren't original just to mass produce and put Jordan's on everyone's feet. There was no exclusivity any longer. This is a personal story that has nothing to do with anyone else's preference, just sharing what happened in my head with shoe collecting over time.   

we would stand in line for hours before the store opened at the Mall of America with scores of shady people looking to buy/take your shoes. We got out of there fast as hell.

Then my buddy decided to it was easier to just get a job at the shoe store so we could skip the lines.

I have 1 pair of Jordan's now, and they are my softball cleats. oh how times have changed.

Those Hender Scheme 4’s sell for a fortune these days. Speaking as someone who recently “left the game”, nothing much has changed and you aren’t really missing anything amazing. My brief foray back in resulted in me picking up some OG colours of 1’s, 3’s 4’s 5’a and 6’s, which I’m happy about, but happier to be out again.

Is that Ben Foster, as in the goalkeeper Ben Foster?  ???


@Megatron1505 yeah it is mate. the League cup winning legend that is Ben Foster. you should give his other videos a go, he's such a down to earth lad and these behind the scenes videos are brilliant to watch. Not gonna lie, he did make me secretly root for Watford to get back into the Prem.

I’ll take a look, he has always come across as a decent guy in interviews I have seen with him.

if you have the chance after watching his videos, he did a super 6 podcast with akinfenwa and Laura woods as well, which is well worth listening too. everything from his days coming up from stoke and playing at man utd till where he is today.

I mean drawing against spurs is a massive achievement. plenty of good things to look forward to, like the championship as an example.  ;) ;)

on the topic of hender scheme. this is one of their collaboration with Adidas. this one really called out to me because of the coloured dyed leather which they don't always do and the embossing of the Adidas logo with was really special..

@louisbosco , the only problem with those shoes is that NMD’s are ugly as f**k.

I hated the ones from Adidas. but somehow the leather construction on the Hender Scheme ones makes it a lot better.
