post #4111 of 8042

Wow the Bred I's are beautiful. Where are the pics from? (But I thought they were a '13 Holiday release, not '14?) I think you have to shell out 200 minimum for the Royal Blue I's, that's what I paid not too long ago. Can't speak for the Black Toes though.

Black/red 1's are going to be a nightmare to cop, given that it's a holiday release and it's what most consider to be the quintessential Jordan 1. Black Toes should be found fairly easy, and at a reasonable price (+/- $30 from retail). Good luck with Royals.. expect to drop $350+ for a real pair. I say that because they have been faked so much that I would only consider purchasing a pair that came with a receipt, and even then I would be hesitant.

THEY WILL BE A WIDE RELEASE.

Pretty happy about these. Last pair in my size at Dick's, I had no idea they carried that caliber of nike. They also had the new tech pack hoodie and the flash pack jackets.

It will help since stock will be a lot more. Chances are still slim but your chances are better just because more stores will carry them.

It doesn't matter at all. The black/red XI's that came out last Christmas were a GR (and arguably one of the biggest GR's in terms of quantity produced in JB history) and those were next to impossible to purchase. Due to it being the holidays and kids being flush with cash and time to waste, the lineups started around 9pm in my area (and I've never seen an overnight campout for Jordans here). I suspect the same thing will happen with these.

I guess the bottom line is if you're willing to line up, any release will be an easy cop. Personally, I will never line up for a Jordan and would rather pay a premium from a reseller (which is what I did with my Royals and black/reds).

I had no problems purchasing them online. I was able to get me a pair and 2 for some friends.

Cool. That makes you the exception, not the rule.

damn it, got two small spots of what i'm assuming is mustard (?) on my white fk trainers! frown.gif

didn't even notice it until i got home and took them off (they're right under the swoosh)



today was only the second time i've ever worn them, le sigh... confused.gif


i wear them as a causal shoe, too, so i was hoping to keep them as pristine and clean as possible
post #4122 of 8042

dam I was about to buy some flyknits but ill be using them as beaters.

can anyone else comment on how dirty they get? obviously they will be beaters but certain shoes only get so dirty whereas something like canvas vans can turn white to orange/brown.

They pick up dirt pretty easy, but like Golf said, just throw them in the wash (in a pillowcase on delicate). Works great.
