    Barkley’s was clean too, maybe not as sought out and they could have had better colors when they re-released them and release more than than just the one style (as i remember)

  • Keyshawn

    Agree…the Reebok Questions have got to make the list!!! They were being sold YEARS after the original release—not as a re-release, they just kept them coming in different colors year after year!

    How do the McFly’s make this list!?! Didn’t we use to clown shoes that lit up (like the old LA Gears)??? Now you got them on a “must have” list…C’Mon Son! And, the price of them makes them unavailable to even the most on point sneakerhead.
