Throwback Thursday…..Chris Webber Leaves Nike????

Back in 95’ Chris Webber was a young NBA stud with all the promise and potential in the world.  With Nike being in its early prime with MJ on board and the sneaker game evolving, Webber signed with the winning team of course, who wouldn’t? But just after 3 years of the Nike Air Max CW Webber severed ties with the shoe giant due to Nike refusing to lower its $140 sales price for the “C-Webb” sneaker which at the time was the highest for any shoe in the market….even Jordans.  With all the new violence that surrounded sneakers at the time Webber stated, “How can I charge that [price] for my shoe when I speak to all those inner- city kids and preach to them? How can my shoe cost more than Michael Jordan’s?”  Nike had no answers and Chris went on to deals with Converse, Fila and Dada to finish his career, a far cry from the graces of Nike but at least C-Webb stood for something.  Respect.

Who Still Copping???

As reported before, Jordan Brand has promised to improve the quality of their upcoming releases.  Now, word is that the 2015 release of the Jordan 4 “Columbia Blue” will retail for over $200.  Are the improved materials worth the added cost?  Who still copping?
