I like the last one in all truth, black and purple with some gold.

Haha it's funny you guys favor the black/red and the black/purple. The other communities I've showed this to all favored the gray design. Aesthetics aside, logo and all, the shoes are incredibly comfortable and light. The d3o stuff is no joke. Been icing my legs a LOT less.

they look pretty sick. i'd probably pick up a pair from local sheikh's... if they carry them.

btw: no wonder ron was so distracted this year.... he got too much off the court stuff goin on.

I figured they'd be tied together, like the bottom of a straight jacket.

Ron has to be one of the interesting player to play basketball in my opinion . From throwing punches to his awful dribbling to a rapper lol he has my respect tho . He represents purple n gold well .

Didn't he just recently get sponsored by Peak? Now he's switching again?

Yeah only complaint is that I don't like the "B" logo, maybe could've come up with something more creative there, but still nice.

Dope shoes, but i prefer Air forces and J's

You might be in luck, man. I hear the "B" is getting a lot of negative response, so they might have a "Create Our Logo" contest. Just rumors, though. Hope it's true!

Also, they have an online store on their facebook, now! Get your black lows and gray mids, everyone.

They are not bad for the 50 to 100dollar range. They come with basically doctor S. Gel shocks in and are like 25 a pop they are amazing in pennys I play in. i agree with you guys though, not feeling the B logo, maybe put crazy grafitti killer bee or a straight jacket.I do wanna hear the mix tape though.
