Doesn't the sole peel off and the glue fail on those older shoes? My older sneakers (even as recent as 2002) tend to separate.
+1. I had a couple of pairs of Nikes (Air Max variants) that I bought back in the 1990s and early 2000s where the soles essentially started breaking down into dust over 2-3 years and the Air bladder lost its gas. I also had a pair of New Balance shoes (not a classic model, but a more modern-looking cross-training model) that I bought in about 2002 that started to self-destruct after a couple of years of pretty mild wear.

Surprising - but good - to hear that some models are holding up well after 20+ years.

do people take their typical nike size in non-sb dunk lows?
For the most part, yes.

I also find new Dunks fit smaller than previous.

For example, I could fit a size 10 in my 2013 Viotech but I struggle to squeeze into my size 10 Viotech from 2019.

Anyone selling size 10.5 OW UNLV lows?

Did you end up buying the Storm Blue 1's?

they're asking $600+ for my size (8.5)

i think the absolute max i'd pay is $450 (with tax and shipping and everything), but we'll see how desperate i get i guess

man that's a lot for the storm blues. I got 2 pairs back when they released and returned one of them. can't drop that much for a pair of sneakers. but if you love them, you only live once.

Nice. Should receive my court purples tomorrow. Yes, need shattered backboard 1.0 and unions. But waaaay more than I’m willing to pony up.... sigh

got the moon racers on steep sale from Nike, very underrated. Like them a lot

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
