I've spent the last 5 years writing letters and making social media posts about the above pictured sneaker. In fact, those who know me well enough could say I've been practically begging you to release a Retro version of this sneaker. You see when this sneaker originally dropped in 1996, I was 12 and an avid sneaker enthusiast. Problem was, my mother while raising 4 children couldn't necessarily fit a $125 sneaker into her budget. And so in order to obtain the sz 11.5 that I desperately wanted so bad, I spent 4 weeks mowing lawns, raking leaves and performing chores around the neighborhood to get the $$$ needed to buy these sneakers. Once I had the $145 needed ( had to catch the metro which was $0.90 and have $6.33 for a Big Mac Combo Meal) I rushed to Bannister Mall (Which was the Mall of all malls in Kansas City at the time) only to discover that the sz 11.5 that I had worked so hard for was sold out and so were the nearest sizes. I was crushed!!!!! Still am to this day. Please Retro this sneaker in 2018 and I promise to purchase 10 pairs upon release! Hell I'll buy 25 if I need too. Please end this long suffering and yearning for the one sneaker that has evaded me for so long.
