The black/white/red Pippen 1: The one that got away… . . The Air Pippen 1 released in 1997 and featured a full grain leather and Durabuck upper, tri-density jewel reinforcements, Phylon midsole with side wall wraps and a full length, tri pressure Air Max unit. The shoe weighed 20 ounces and retailed at $149.99 (about $241 today ). . . This colorway retroed twice, in 2008 and in 2015. Unfortunately for me, I never managed to get my hands on a pair. In 1997 and 2008 I couldn’t afford them. In 2015, I had just finished law school and had other priorities. The stars never lined up but I always regretted never owning a pair. . . That’s why the Air Pippen 1 is the shoe that got away for me. What’s yours??? #throwbackthursday

1996 Nike Air Zoom Turf Trainer. Barry Sanders' shoe... Birthday weekend in Toronto and forgot to pack my kicks. My girlfriend at the time and I goto Foot Locker in Yorkdale Mall and it was between these and Air Zoom Flight 96 "Penny Hardaway Olympic PE"...Asked my lady which one to cop, she says "Penny is your dude, right?" Bought those instead of the Barry Sanders shoe....haven't seen those in my size since.

These shoes are mine, I had them in my hand when they originally came out and the guy working at the store said "you know the air bubble may pop" my dad heard that and said nope you aren't getting them 🤦‍♂️ One day they will be mine!!

Best basketball shoes I’ve ever played in. I just loved them back in the day. Bought a pair of this colorway in Vegas.

I, too, regret never getting this pair. But I was a young immigrant, mom was a single parent that didn’t make enough to afford all the sneakers I wanted. I wish I could get a pair now. I’ve been searching and nothing

Had these in 7th grade. When I thrashed them I drew on the white sole with a blue pen.

Mine would probably be the air jordan 12 taxis that were released in 2016, during tax refund season. Everywhere you went, you'd see people wearing them.
