I think all that they do at Complex is make lists of things. Here is another. It's kind of awful. Energy Boost above the ZX 8000? Looks like they swiped an Errol pic in there, as well.

Can't see any of my stuff in there Mike but i can recognise plenty of other peoples images. Pretty sad for a magazine that size also how the hell are supposed to read the text with it jumping up and down constantly.

Why don't we make a list of the top 100 supes? A mother of an idea! Laughing

Complex is terrible. Their 100 best running shoes of all time is ridiculous.

At least they got number 1 right. Imagine if they messed that up?!

that would take weeks to complete would be my guess Wink too many differing opinions on models. for example, i would want my favorite Footlocker SS2's WAY UP HIGH on the list Very Happy hahahaha

Great idea Ben! Or to make it easier, everyone's top 10 maybe? Start a thread, go on, I dares Ya!

In all seriousness, Tif and I spoke about this and figured something along these lines would be a good resource and a use of our vast collective knowledge (some more than others). The site deserves its own stupid list. We could just collect say 50 models in a thread and then post a poll. Knockout a new thread with images of the 50 in order. That simple. I am happy to locate pics and I am sure we have some killer shots amongst us all in any case.
Olskool stick your footlockers in the thread man! It is what WE think that counts anyway.


done.

Will figure out (with help) how to poll these so we can have say 5 votes each. The results will speak for themselves.

I think we could all come to agreement on the top 3-5. After that, it's pretty subjective. In some ways I think 3 of the 5 35th vins need to be in the top 10, but that feels exclusionary to the guys who don't have them and overly rewarding expensive kicks over GR.

Also, I think that guys would be more likely to put older releases in over newer, but that shouldn't necessarily be the case. For example, out of all the white w/ black stripes I have, I think that last year's GR 80s are the best and should be in the top 15, but would likely get bumped over older SS1s, 2s, vins, Atmos, etc.

That why the list may work, you choose what you want. The rest is up to the poll on those chosen. Probably be a bit of a mess at the end, but I am sure Mr Spite can sort shit out in a friendly manner. No-one gives Mr Spite any shit, now do they?
