What makes it more ridiculous is that they had to create this entirely new middle ground between a 1.0 and a 2.0. Most of the league wears the 2.0 (which is made from the same material as the old 6100 airknit), some wear 1.0. No one wears Indo. To basically create this out of nothing is crazy.

And to add to it, Reebok got stuck with so many 1.0s that they ended up dumping huge quantities on SVP Sports up in Canada last summer. Included in that dumping were massive numbers of 2.0s that were going away that Reebok couldn't move any longer, everything from the Calgary Heritage Classic jerseys to the Maple Leaf ones that look like practice jerseys.

SVP was charging something like $60 a pop for these things. Fully licensed, 100% authentic, and $60.
