Beautiful. I'm not a fan of the dirt and distressing on the pair that dropped this morning. I plan on grabbing these whenever they drop.
I agree, like the look of these better (hate that we have to wait until at least October for them though? I got the Judahs more just to get a sense of size and will prob return but will post my first Post-Skinny review for y'all.

What size did you end up going with? I remember you mentioning that you've been sizing up on Cast 2's lately. I wasn't sure which size to go with. So, I ordered two sizes.
I went with a 32. My waist is more 31 but I hate skin tight cast 2. I have the Canal Daze in 32 and they fit perfect. Very smart grabbing two sizes.

Unfortunately, it looks like the clean Kane 2 JE was rocking, are probably gonna be cropped 🤒

Those with raw hem AND regular length would have been a must. Not that excited as of now, if it’s the cropped length.
They need to be cropped. I've got Kane 2 in Carbon and Avalon and both need to be turned up to achieve the look.

On another note, these Daze Pollocks are absolutely absurd

Does anyone own both Juliettes and Avalon’s? I have Juliettes but they look so similar that I’m not sure it’s worth getting Avalon’s but I kinda want them 😂
I just pulled the trigger on the Daze Avalon on Grailed for the lowlow. Idk if I messed up by going one size down but the seller said the waist fit big. Hopefully it works out.

Absurd in a good way right?

The 29's? I think those are Kane 2 Coasts since they look identical to mine and don't have the same distressing as Avalon's. Either way a great pair.

Cool Grey runners came in. These are really nice in hand and I was more impressed once I got to see the colors and detail in person. They are similar to the Icons in the sense that you don't realize how cool they are until you hold the shoe and put it on(I might be biased on the icons since the Bron 8s are my second favorite silhouette after the 7). Subtle details and layers make the shoe pop and I like the touch of leather on the tongue and heel.

As far as sizing goes, this one is tricky. I ordered these in 43 (same size as my Caldera) and I'm a true 10.5. They aren't as full cut to me as the Caldera, but they still fit (just a tad snug, which I don't mind because they aren't restrictive in any way, if that makes sense). I would be curious to see what a 44 felt like, but I think they'd be too big.

Overall, sure $448 is steep for a pair of runners but these are tuffffff. I cannot wait to roc these with the 26 oz LA sweats that will be releasing soon, 15 min before the supposed drop time and will sell out before 11!

No!! They are shocking!

Daze for me is a weird fit. If you're gonna go with the current fashion with more relaxed denim, its got to be Kanes. Daze is a compromise. Not a good one.

And this wash with the paint splattering is really really bad. Each to their own, but 99% of people that see you rocking this denim are gonna be cursing.

Although I never agree with you, I have to applaud ur conviction behind the things you say.

lol I just thought it was the bad camera quality but you are definitely right that it looks like the Kane 2 Coasts. Thanks for the clarifying and am lowkey more excited it came out this way.
