    I go with the Oscillates.

    I also love the way the adidas feathers in black look.

    Is that supposed to be irony? Those shoes look perfectly fine, as opposed to the comic book superhero shoes that seem to be in vogue these days. Or am I just too old-school that I appreciate a mostly white tennis shoe?

    There seems to be a love 'em or hate 'em thing going on with these shoes in another thread. Not much middle ground here. "Chinese" Barricade IV's, and in the other thread it was said that TW will be stocking them soon.

    Fila shoes are ugly. The black and cactus Air Tech Challenge 3's are really ugly.

    Where are all the monstrosities Nike made for Agassi (in the "hair" days)??? Lots of things that matched the acid wash clothes that had awful colors and patterns...

    Now we're talking! And there are a few others from this era that had a spray painted or airbrushed look as well. I must admit that I was the owner of a few such ugly kicks, though. There was a version of the above with colors similar to the Miami Dolphins that wasn't too handsome.

    I had a pair of those shoes, but they were white and green with the same yellow sole.

    They were really comfortable.

    These vintage Air Jordans are cool, never would wear them, but they look good on other people feet.

    the tennis ball pumps are sort of cool actually. if they made a racket and strings that color i'd buy it because you couldn't see the ball come of the strings.
    if you walked around in those shoes you would have the army come after you, shoot you, bring you to area 51, and conduct experiments on you
