StockX can be scary sometimes. I put in low bids on shoes, thinking they won’t sell that low. Then I forget about it, and a few weeks later I’ll get an email that my purchase was confirmed. It’s nice to get them for a low price but I’m not always expecting the extra purchase to hit my credit card when I’m not thinking about it!

In this case, I wanted the Moss React 87s, but I didn’t want to pay retail. They didn’t sell out and seemed to be sitting around, so I threw in a lowball bid of $130 and ended up picking them up. I only have the ISPA reacts, so this will be my first pair of 87s, looking forward to trying them out.
Happened to me 3x this past weekend! Lesson learned but at least I have some nice kicks on the way.

BTW, I had some free time this morning and found myself in our local outlet store. Spotted a pair of Moss React 87s in my size for 20% off. Must have been a return. Instakop.

What are the differences between the React 87s and the React 55s?

(size question incoming, feel free to scroll on by....)

is there a consolidated size/fit discussion anywhere? I mostly have running shoes but Nike keep changing the designs every year (or twice a year) and some fit larger, some smaller. Annoying! I could go into Niketown and try everything, but internets would know best! Also am I really a size 10 when I'm 9 in almost everything else?

Any Nike I’ve ever owned seems to run pretty consistently small. I’ve worn nothing but size 14 in Nike/Jordan, and I’ve owned easily over 250 pairs throughout my entire adult life. This is actually the case with most other sneakers for me...I’ve worn 14s in New Balance 574, Adidas Ultraboost/NMD, etc. I wear dress shoes anywhere between 12-13 depending on maker and last.

Nike has always run small for me too, and I noticed with thinner socks (e.g. Uniqlo) I can go TTS a bit better after initial break in.
