So I am guessing MrPs Euro website charges more? Because the US MrP website charges less than what Nike prices them in their website.
As for quality, I touched up on this in an earlier post but I rarely complain about Nike products, I sweat and beat them to hell and wash every week and they last for years, I probably have to switch up compression shirts every year or two? I do have about 5-7 in rotation but I wash them weekly still (feels terrible wearing it again after you sweat on it and it dried). SO the Gyakusou will likely be the same, if not better, quality. And it seems like it does look and fit better (better or more fit I guess) than the typical Nike gear.
The only qualms I have with Nike is the quality on their retro Jordans, the shoes comes pre-creased sometimes. I mean I'd wear them and they'd crease anyways but it is due to simply crappy materials and the fact that they keep increasing the price every year.
