Called Footlocker to ask about the charge still sitting on my account. Confirmed that I didn't get a pair of the 350s and that they will reverse the charge soon.

Oh well. Stock X has them at $480 ish buy now. That's rich but man these look good. Dunno....

Holy moly. The nike sacai blazer is a lot cheaper resale than I thought they would be.

Guess the waffle stole the show.

I ordered a pair of these Ultra Boosts from adidas.com, and when they arrived the black boost had somehow overheated and rubbed off on the white heels, leaving ugly dark marks that won't wash off. And If the idiots who packed them had simply wrapped them in the paper properly, the left and right shoes wouldn't have been in contact with each other and it wouldn't have happened. So I'm returning them for a refund since they no longer have my size.

My 350 Static Blacks just arrived and I'm so happy I got lucky on YeezySupply. I have a pair of Sesame and Butter in 350 and Inertia in 700 and the Static Blacks are my favorite one of all of them now. They just look sharp. They also look like a lite version of the reflectives because it seems some of the 3M came off the laces and went all over the shoe.

The sneaker discussion in the Giant Bomb thread last night made me realize I hadn’t bought a new pair of shoes in three years, and my current pair were literally starting to fall apart. Shoes have just never been something I’ve paid much attention to. Anyway, picked these up this morning, they are comfy as hell.

The reps of the new black 350s are coming in better made that the retails and are pretty much 1:1. It's embarrassing how the quality check from Adidas has gone down hill. I sold my retail for G5 reps.

Nike isn't good at qc either. Some reps looks cleaner than the original ones lol

The travis one's had terrible QC. Reps could copy them exactly, leading to the situation of fakes getting though StockX.

These shoes are made to be cheap that's why the profit margin so high. and because they are made cheap the quality will be cheap as well.

This is becoming a really common trend from what I'm seeing with everything from Nike and Adidas.

Edit: All the Stranger Things collab shoes are $120. It's less egregious for the Blazers since those retail for $100, but the Cortez and Tailwind at $120 are a hard no, especially since there's nothing special about them at all.

Yes, reps = replicas.

Nike need to hurry the fuck up and release the Presto Reacts in Europe...getting tired of waiting. Want the 270 Reacts as well...
This. Don't know what the deal is with no europe release yet.

Kids sizes available.

So people are pissed because the Yellow Toe 1's are mids, but I was able to walk into Champs and get them so I'm not upset at all. Theyre Mid SE's so they feel just as quality as my highs tbh

I'm seeing conflicting info.

If my fiance wears 8.5 regularly, what size should I get her in Yeezys? I'm thinking convert to 7.5 men's, then up half a size? So 8?

Edit: actually I guess a 7?

I fucking love the way my Yeezy 350 v2 Zeebras look and I basically get compliments on them any time I wear them out (which is only like... Once every two weeks or so).

Does anyone know if the other colorways for the 350 v2 handle wear any better? I find myself having to scrub them down with cleaning solution and a toothbrush every time I wear them. The bottom "boost" pad is scientifically engineered to collect dirt and grime and look nasty af

I have very wide, flat feet so take this with a grain of salt. I'm a natural 11-11.5 and a size 12 in Yeezy's just BARELY fits me and aren't exactly what I'd call comfortable after 60+ hours of use.

Ended up getting 7.5 (she's a 9 in women's)

So they seems to be clearing out a decent amount of NMDs and other shoes. Picked up like a couple shoes for my fiance, mom, and sister. Thanks guy above me.

Love my Blue Sacai Blazers, they get a lot of compliments and they are super unique.

The QC is kinda shit though, the glue is a bit messy and a few spots of the overlayed sole are disconnected.

From what I read it's going to be wide release with plenty of stores getting them (in the US). Will be an easy copy.
