    And why is it called the a930, when 830 is on the side of the shoe?

    Oh the memories, the canter lever sole!!!! for those that could not afford Nike Air’s :) They used to be so popular at my home town in rural NZ, back in the day. Brings a smile to my face.

    James, the plane joke went through my mind too, that logo, yikes!
    Otherwise, I love shoes that are just really, really basic.

    Damn, I think I had some moon boots that looked exactly like these. Man, I miss the 80s.

    I had a pair similar to these. 80′s baby. I had some Mutombos too when everybody used to rock the Ewings.

    Threw down my first dunk in these in ’89, was in year 11. Had to wear these at a State tournament when my Air Force Hi 3 blew out at the back. These were never availble in Oz and bought them off a mate who got the from overseas. His loss, my gain. Looked alrite but sweet to hoop in!

    I still got these deadstock in my closet. The low cut joints, of course, along with the all white version.
