I saw these shoes at City Sports here in the Boston area (Chestnut Hill). I must say, they look pretty sweet, even without the flaming ball logo on the back. Would look even better still if that small piece on the heal was black like the originals. One thing I noticed was that the yellow color was much more neon than the pics I've seen online. Much closer to the original than I thought it would be. From the pics I've seen, I thought the color to be the same as the yellow (swoosh) on the BF3's. Didn't seem to quite have as much support as it should if it were meant to be a player's shoe. Still, though, I think I've found a use for my $100 gift card. By the way, anybody know, and TW, you can chime in on this as well, will the Air Flare Retros be a playable shoe, or also not up to the original's technical standards? Thanks.
