The McDowells Air Pro Sport makes it obvious which iconic sneaker its trying to recreate. However, the brand just didn’t go for the generic OG High shape. McDowells chased the 1985 look and they got close. Like really close. We’re now at a point where bootlegs go for a $300 retail price. Not that long ago, they were made and sold cheaper so people who wanted the actual product but don’t have the money could still get the feeling of wearing the shoe. These really remind us of the era before bootlegs got crazy.
Check out Chris’s thoughts on the Air Pro Sport in the video and article.
