    If you want to give it a try, Nike.com offers a 30-day trial, you can return any shoes in any condition within that time period if you end up not liking them.

    Bad pic, but Roshes really can survive anything [​IMG]

    Personally still like them, even though I'm well-aware they aren't exactly the most popular shoe around the forum.
    Lightweight, comfortable, inoffensive design and very cleanable, they are just about the perfect summer shoe imo.

    I used to like my Roshes a lot, KoY. I think mine got to that condition after a few months of heavy use. They are really comfortable.

    Took a pic of my LunarEpics today. Removed the laces and blacked out the swoosh.

    Side by side I still prefer the tennis. They are both food looking though.

    I think I'm going to stick with the AF1s, it feels a bit more comfortable. The Tennis Classic has this weird cork-looking insole that is more like a cheap pillow, feels like a very dated tech and that is in comparison to the regular Nike insole the AF1 has. The thicker soles probably helps the AF1 a lot in the comfort department too, the ultra midsole just works better on a thicker midsole. It's $20 more but it does come with a better slide out box, mesh gym sack and metal lace tips. It's the small things that gets you :D


    And Roshes are a good go to shoes, I still have one always lying around when I need something for quick errands. I think it had some initial hate because it was a hypebeast shoe there for a while, selling out like it was some retro Jordans but that has since calmed down. Or the hype just moved on to Adidas' Ultra Boosts and NMD but for Roshes retailing at ~$60, makes it difficult to argue for it,it's just a nice and simple pair of shoes.


    Nice quick customs Rais :lol: , check out some angelus paint though if you want to take it further and look cleaner. And I am really considering the LunarEpics for the 10k and half marathon I am running in November.


    Also, Air Foamposite Pro “Hyper Cobalt” releases in August and sort of want...

    I had the foamposites when they were new, I remember they were the first sneaks to crack the $200 barrier. I was so excited to get them and couldn't get over how ugly they were on my feet so I ended up selling them.

    Also hated how the laces go down to the toes.

    These are about 3 years old [​IMG]

    Looking at possibly getting some air rifts for this summer though (the common black/magenta version).
    Usually wear a uk9 in shoes, which everywhere except nike afaik is 43 but for Nike it's for some reason a 44.
    Anyway, anyone with rifts who can tell me if I should I go true to size with rifts?
    (If anyone has roshes to compare with that'd be swell, mine are uk9.5)

    i think swoosh-less jordan 1 highs would've looked pretty cool, especially in that penis colorway on the left

    Those sandals are pretty out there. The tee in that outfit looks cool.

    Do any of you guys have the Tech Knit / Libero pants? Are they worth it? My tech fleece are shot and need some daily beater sweats, I don't really want another pair of the standard tech fleece though. I've thought about the TF Cropped, or the NikeLab TF which are all over ebay.

    Cool thanks. Where did you get them under retail? I can't even find them on NDC anymore, so I guess I'd get them off End.
