I got some Miler running shirts. They were like $45 a pop and some nice fitting Drifit shirt at $40 a pop. Love them both. Super soft and excellent fit. I'll scoop up some compression gear and jackets later on when new styles come in.

I don't mind spending money for quality stuff like this though since they'll be worn on the regular.

Long shot, but could anybody help with a few quick questions?

Anyway, got a pair of bred XI's during their last restock (got caught up in the hype, I guess, since they were gonna be my first Jordans), but I've long since realized that they're way too flashy a shoe for me (and kind of ugly on feet eek.gif).

So...


1. Does trying them on count as having un-deadstock'd them? I only tried the right shoe on for size reference (didn't even take a step in them).

2. Do people generally care about the condition of the box? I got mine from Shoe Palace, and it came with a crushed corner. The clear, red XI thingy ("Tinker made them etc.") was also broken as a result.

3. I'm only gonna ask $210~220 (since that's what I paid for them with tax and SP's +$5 price tag). Does asking for such a low price come off as suspect?

Went for my first run in the Flyknit Frees tonight. Best run in a long time. I've never had a running shoe with such a perfect fit.

I can't recommend these highly enough.

Take pictures and put it on ebay buy it now for $250 and they will be sold the same day.  I would still call them Deadstock as people's definitions differ on the subject.

Weren't people going crazy for the Nike Pinnacle tank a while back?





NDC has it for $120 in all sizes.

What does laser perforated mean? They used a laser to create the holes in the back? And I googled it but couldn't find an answer, what is the difference between NSW and Nike Pinnacle? Thanks.


And for the peeps looking for MC flyknit trainers.

Not as nice as the racers but better than the lunar 1s imo.

Agreed completely. Shoes is fire tho. You can try Craigslist for a quicker sale too.

Pinnacle's just a line within NSW. All made in Italy I believe. http://nikeinc.com/news/nike-sportswear-pinnacle-collection#/inline/12620

I hate the regular LeBron's.  Not looking for a basketball shoe, looking for something I can fuck up at the bar.  I've got four pairs of chucks and five pairs of CPs.  I want something heftier than a chuck.

Thanks for the advice on the Concords. I just sold them for the $178.

They released photos of two new color of his lifestyle line, if you like it go for it. For casual wear I love the regular Lebron's 360 zoom max air bag, its like walking on pillows. In other news I copped the Civilist Dunks that came out, those things are the best looking Nike in a minute material wise.

If it is really worth $220, then that would be something else.

I need to go change the buy it now price on my ads.

I resale allot on my kicks, I bought Concords by the case. You are right $250 is about the going rate if you want to move them fairly quick. You can get more but may take a while.

178 is a good price for the condition and iirc they don't have a box. IIRC 178 was retail for some people and I get 190-200 all day for a worn pair of any mid 11 (bred, concord and Jam). I dont see you getting any more than 200 on these. There are some idiots that will pay and rather pay the premium so they can brag about how much they spent but they are not a dime a dozen.

Tried on fkyknit frees today and man. They fit too tight around the ankle and the toebox is too blobby.
I do love that Nike is really going for it, they are SO futuristic!
