So I need a new pair of shoes for basketball/everyday wear. I'm wondering, does anyone have any idea if they still make these, or more importantly, where I might be able to find them? Is there anyone on here thats even old enough to remember them? Im not talking about spending over $300 on ebay either.

I'd rock those Grant Hill's if I could get my hands on 'em, just for the nostalgia.

Also, the honeycomb Iverson's were pretty money.http://www.stilettosetsports.com/wp-content/uploads/iverson-question.jpg

And can't forget the PUMPS! haha http://malonso23.files.wordpress.com/2009/06/reebok-pump-omni-light-91-1.jpg

But nothing beats the old school Penny's: http://projectsole.files.wordpress.com/2009/06/nike-air-penny-ii.jpg http://www.eukicks.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/06/nike-air-penny-ii-2-retro-2.jpg

And like the OP said, if anyone knows of a good plays to cop these online, PLEASE don't hesitate to spill...

I would avoid buying vintage kicks on eBay or at least be very cautious. Lots of fakes out there, I remember a story saying there are more fake AJ XI's than any fake women's shoe.

I had a pair of the low cut questions in carolina/navy toe, loved those things.

I also had the Answer I's and IV's

Had a pair of Steve Francis first sig she with Reebok, the shiny silver one

Numerous Jordan's, loved the XI and XII, still have brand new pairs of the XIII and XIV black in their original boxes.

Current game shoe I use is the Jordan XX1 in red

Thats why I said I'm not talking about ebay.


I guess a couple years ago Fila re-released the grant hills so those might be easier to find.

I'm not sure if they have the ones you're looking for, but they do have a wealth of retro (kinda) basketball shoes like the Air Pennys. The prices seem reasonable too.

They are kind of ugly to me, I dont really like them. Besides, I'm looking for these specific shoes, if I was gonna get a regular pair of sneakers I would have just got them already and wouldnt have made this thread. Why would I buy lebrons?

I remember buying the Penny's with the #1 on the back. Those were the must haves! I also had the every variation of GHill Fila's. I remember the ones with the reflective blue around it and they stopped the basketball game I was playing in because they thought I had metal on my shoes (as if it would make a difference anyway?) Those Penny's were like $120 15 years ago!!
