All I want for Christmas are a pair of Air Yeezys.

Cross my heart, I will quit the game if I get these joints.

I was having a sneaker nerd moment with some of my folks from Obsessive Sneaker Disorder and I was insistent that the midsole and cupsole of the Air Yeezys was taken from the retro Air Assault shoe. My peeps are like nahh, the Air Yeezys take the sole off the Jordan III’s.

I’ma let y’all decide…

air assault
Air Assault retro

aj 3
Air Jordan III

air assault
Air Yeezy

And don’t front on tuning into Obsessive Sneaker Disorder’s talk show where we debate, commiserate, eviscerate and talk about everything great in the world of sneakers.

    DP, what about the Air Revolution? thats what i saw when i see them. Dee from OSD confirmed that the pairs that my man saw online were fake. Are they making them sometime soon?

  2. Nattiez says:

    I cant paste a pic though.

  3. cocotaso says:

    i always thought the midsole on the air assault, air revolution and ajIII were the same. if not the og’s at least the retro’s all have the same midsole

  4. 40 says:

    It is based on the Air Revolution which at the time created the air sole that would then be used by the AJIII. OG Assaults didn’t have the visible sole. If I’m not mistaken.

    I’m not feelin’ those Yeezy’s, but I am… The toungue is sickwidit.

    Anyway, I hope nobody paid money for that colorway of retro III.

    I’m bored and need some beef. You got any problems with anybody? Serious yo, I need to ignite some ish!

    Combat Jack,
    Don’t hurt nobody yet. I will run the the next part of our debates: Public Enemy.

    Too many rumors are being circulated about the release of these shoes. No one but Nike and maybe KanYe knows for sure if they are going to be produced.

    All I know is I need these.

    CJ I’m with you not against you, if you need a potna in ignance.

  9. Jonny D says:

    Get’cha fanboy on.

    Jonny D,
    I already changed the game with my renditions of DC characters

    The Joker Dallas
    The Super Dallas


  11. Can’t fuck with the Air Yeezys at allll!!! and Dallas I’m usually in agreement with your flavor speak…………every time I see them joints I want my David Robinson NIKE AIRFORCE 180 Pumps back…………I keeed, I keeed…..

  12. the_dallas says:

    I am a huge fan of the 180’s and the David Robinson 180 pumps were crazy.

    There is just something about these Air Yeezys that I love. Maybe its the high tongue that can hold me jeans back. Maybe its the purp/orange colorway. I can’t call it else I might spoil it but as soon as I get these kicks I will stop collecting sneakers.

  13. DirtyJerz says:

    Yo, I’m not so sure about them Yeezys. That tongue and the thick strap is a lil too flagrant. But I do appreciate them not looking so Kanye West, like them hideous Louis Vuittons and bitchified Supras.

    BTW. I went hard on the Nike Outlet on the southside. Compared to others i’ve been to, this place is damn impressive. I copped so much sh*t on the cheap, I needed help to the vehicle. I’m ’bout to get on my internets grizz something crazy!

  14. mek dot says:

    those sneaks… part of me wants to hate it, yet cop a pair at the same time.

    honestly though, i only think one person could fully pull these off, and i’m not willing to start singing thru a vocoder about cardiac damage to be able to do so.

  15. the_dallas says:

    They are mad futuristic, but we cant be scared of the future.

    I’m just happy that they still have laces instead of being totally velcro’d out.

  16. DirtyJerz says:

    DP, I’ll concur. Even though they are not at the top of my list, I’ll prah’li cop, just because of the futuristic factor. Kinda like a Kool Keith CD. You don’t necessarily understand it right away, but you just know that its the future. You just know.

  17. Nattiez says:

    @Jerz, are you selling what you copped?

  18. DirtyJerz says:

    @ Nat…yessir!
