Nice OGs. And yes these did big numbers when originally released. Even here in NYC they moved. The blk/gold ones that release in Spring '97 were tough too.

Nice OGs. 

All of the retros that released dont have the rubber part that comes up on the toe.

DMXFury - thanks. I caught Reebok fever earlier this year  and I got them shipped from a Baltimore mall that said they had them on clearance for a while.

I wanted to add that there must be a problem with Reebok retroing older models as I have seen over the years.

I think they either signed a contract with each individual player that some how makes it unable to release the retro, or they simply don't have the old molds.

Reebok has been almost non existent in the retro market. There has to be a reason why they haven't re-released any signature shoes that actually gave Reebok a fighting chance with Nike in the 90s. They just keep releasing these hybrid updated models of the old classics. 

To be honest, the hunt for Questions and Answers at a time when the general public isn't even checking for Reebok is kinda appealing to me.

Also, Reebok is probably reading so make the Hexalite softer on the side. Hexalite didn't do a damn thing back then and still doesnt't, but it was still cool to push it in with your finger like a Air Max sneaker at the store.

So the white/red OG's had the pearlized toe cap. I could have sworn it was only the White/Blue that was pearlized back in 96-97. Either way, put me down for a pair in 2012 for sure. I regret selling the 1st retro's of the white/red pairsmiley: embarassedsmiley: mad.

I bought a pair sometime between 2001 and 2005. I don't remember when exactly, just that I got them in high school. They were white/red but not pearlized. I'm guessing they were the team colorway that released since it sounds like the OGs had a pearlized toe. Anyone have the background on this?

can we PLEASE get the white/blue pearlized. We already got the red nubucks before and as much as I can appreciate that, nothing beats that OG blue toe.
