Got the ceramics today. Jesus Christ the quality control is terrible. Clearly a return from Nike. Both toe boxes have some messed up suede, glue on the side of the toe and glue stains.

My curries weren’t even close to being the same color.

QC at Nike is bad. But they’re also just $100 sneakers.

Yea like the leather on these was obviously clicked from two completely different hides, but with $100 sneakers and one of the largest companies making shoes in the world, kinda sucks but to be expected. I’d rock those in the same way I would a mismatch pair of Engineered Garments collaborations, ha!

anybody score those rusty zipper J's?

I took an L I know being a sore loser means I'm supposed to say "well they're ugly anyways" but seriously guys, who the fuck said "I wish these basketball shoes reminded me more of weighted stale metal" and who the fuck gave the approval. Next up? Black and silver, which follows black, white, and brown.

ignore the Miami blue J's for the sake of my point.

took an "L" on the rusty shoe's as well. I was thinking I would hit on these because I figured they were ugly enough to keep most people away but I was wrong.

I didn’t even try as they looked like poop to me. Bummer that even these were hard to hit, gives me zero hope for the Shadow 2.0.

does Nike ever let you do custom dunks or dunk lows? The Nike by you doesn't list any dunk as an option, just AF1's, but noticing some 'dunks by you' being shown on their scrollable web browser of completed custom stuff.

They did a couple months ago for Dunks but they sold out almost immediately.

I don't understand how they sold out so quickly unless people had their creations already saved and were able to just go straight to check-out when they dropped. Only other thing I can think is Bots were programmed to do the whole process. The create you own's went as fast as any normal drop
