How do you like the neutral grays? My pair is out for delivery today, hoping the half size up works.

Nope, I didn't get them and the prices on Stockx are quite high which means it wasn't an easy score
ahh good to know, i am waiting to see them in person to decided whether i keep.

When i miraculously won the Union 4s in black i thought it was an instant flip then the sneakers came and i was quite pleased.

what's the reason behind why the University blues are already impossible while the signal blue SE's are easy and affordable and still at some retailers in weird sizes?

i agree that the U's look way nicer even with the higher MSRP, just curious behind what's hot and what's not.

Mids vs Highs.

scarcity of the highs then? Or just this is where the hype is? Or is it Foof style with the highs being more "pure" to the originals?

I'm actually a fan of the cheaper mids. I wear this shit and wear it out.

I think that the University blue feels more authentic to Jordan the man and the brand. It’s one of the main palette colors. Was used by Virgil for one of his styles, was used by Travis for one of his... the AJ4 in that color will also be in demand.

Thanks, that was my concern re: Grailed. I proactively reported him and provided screenshots of the conversation. He also said the QR code which I pictured in the listing does not work (I scanned directly from the image with no issue). The guy was a pain in the ass from the start and I should have followed my intuition to refund him from the start. Lesson learned...

He is also in Canada so while I ate $45 for shipping (shoes only sold for $90 including shipping), I guarantee he won’t send them back on his own dime.
And now the guy continues to harass me (with no picture evidence, just baseless claims) even after I emailed him my receipt from Nike.com. I had already reported him to Grailed with screenshots of are conversation and they said they would monitor him but lesson learned. Should have followed my intuition when he was a painful (low balling) asshole from the jump.

This would be a great time for the “block user” to start working again:(

On a more positive note, mail day yesterday. What do you guys think of the Adapt? Not sure what to do with them as I think they look good and it’s a cool idea but feels more like a novelty item than something I would wear that often.
