post #17071 of 21791
hi guys,

I found what i thought was a REALLY good deal on some YSL rolling sneakers in what i unstand is the "classic" model? Seller tells me they are authentic but since i havent owned any ysl yet i want to be safe before sorry.

Both white and black is available.

The pictures i received which are kinda bad:









What should i look and ask for when buying YSL from private sellers?

Those YSLs looks fake.

The shape is all wrong is all wrong and that particular shoe was never that padded, they were always very thin and flimsy.

I could be wrong but I wouldn't buy those even if it were $50 each.

Does anyone know where I can get a pair of cool gray Jordan 11s?

I need a beater pair of basketball shoes and I have always wanted the cool grays but I didn't know what they were called until recently. I know they are not baller sneakers but I figured someone here might know.

Ebay and pay 3x the retail price.

To be honest, just get some $50 beater at the Nike outlet store, Jordan retro quality isn't that great and the tech in the XIs aren't really that great anymore, not even sure if the shank is still made of real CF these days. You are better of getting some Kobes or Lebrons or Hyperdunks for $50-$70.

really considering getting some black/very dark brown side-zips, preferably a sleek model like the mms, but there's no way those would be able to handle swedish winter
so is the best option to get a sleek pair and let a cobbler add a sole, or are there any other models you'd recommend instead?

dang, I thought nike would produce them again for all the sneaker heads. Thanks for letting me know, I will probably do that.

Guess I will go my entire life without owning a pair of Jordans frown.gif lol

Nike does produce them, I think new ones are releasing this December?

But people still line-up and shoot people for these shoes and plenty of people buy up the whole stock to resell. You'll be lucky to walk in to the store and simply buy a pair like it's a pair of chucks, that rarely happens on Jordan retroes especially the most sought after like III's, IV's, XI's, etc.. in the og and/or nice colorways.


You can still buy a pair of Jordans, there are plenty in the outlet stores, just don't expect the classic retroes ones to be readily available. The Nike outlets 2 weeks ago actually had some Taxi and Obsidian XIIs. I was tempted to get a pair because it was the first OG pair of Jordans I owned and bought with my own saved up money but they didn't have my size but there was still plenty of other sizes. They were $90-$110 iirc. Not sure if they were B-grades though.

Wow, who thought any of these were a good idea? I don't know that I've used the word "heinous" in my life but it applies here.

I kinda like the wood grain on the Lanvin sole redface.gif
It's like pressed plywood a la eames furniture.
