Hey dude Smile

So ive been slack recently, not bought any nice superstars in a while but been trying to get back into the swing of things the last few weeks.

One reason is because my current collection are old, worn out and in desperate need of some new blood.

Another reason is my Mrs has got hers out of storage and she has some AMAZING pairs - it made me super jealous  Laughing

Another reason, less pleasant, is a friend of mine passed away recently Sad and the dress code for his funeral is suits and soops. He loved them himself so it's only right.

Anyway, WHAT THE ACTUAL F**K IS GOING OFF.

Apart from some shitty used pairs, I could barely find a pair less than £60 - some basic models going for £80 and £90!

I found some deadstock for £500 and a few really plush pairs for £100+ which are all fair enough -  but i'm talking reasonably basic stuff for £80!?!?!

Am I missing something? Are they fashionable again? Am I looking in the wrong places?

I used to spend a max of like £40 and got some pretty amazing pairs of superstars over the years and dont mind paying for something proper special but BEJESUS i was taken-aback!

They do hit that price mark but they start off expensive. Wait for adi sales and the extra codes or check the outlets. Most of the deluxe series was available for around £40 eventually. Thats about what you can expect from adi site in the outlet section with an extra sale code. What you after? Tell Dave. Haha! He can find anything like ferret.

Word up Ol, have a look at wellgosh, offspring, size? and the official ADI website for a few good prices...Asos too which is a new one on me but the majority of new releases are wank so don't expect to be blown away with the quality.

With God's help I'll conquer this terrible affliction.

Will do. I've always used eBay and the likes but the prices are seriously hiked up.
