Deciding on a "Lining" color...which looks best

post #32642 of 47720
I'm not saying it makes sense to do a Jordan and AM1 pack but if they are going to do it it def makes sense for it to be the 3. They were both designed by Tink, both were the first running/basketball shoe to have visible air, and in the case of the Atmos pair there's obviously the elephant print. I personally love both models but was never huge on the Atmos AM1 to begin with and their track record with retro+ 3 colorways is way more miss than hit. I'm guessing I won't be wasting my time with it. I do feel for the AM1 fans that don't want to deal with that level of hype tho. Bring on the OG navy pair.

Received a couple of my Will Good Id's. Gotta say the materials are A1 but the craftsmanship is the worst of any Id's I have ever ordered. My Barkroot pair has all types of glue issues and the sole is not sitting properly so you can see the underside of the leather strip. Really disappointed! They also run easily a half size big so I hope you guys with non wide feet sized down. Will try and post up pics tomorrow.

the 1987 OG Nike Air Revolution was the first B-ball sneaker with visible air designed by Tinker Hatfield

Yeah seems like a good match for both but it sucks if they do release as a package

I stand corrected.

It'd be nice if through Nike+, they checked who voted on the atmosphere and do one of those "Reserved pairs" things like they give us for all the other releases on the nike+ app. It won't happen but, a guy can dream, right?

Ha ha , not really usually I got one pair of sneakers a year because we were very poor, my mom worked three jobs and I always got the new Jordan's for my birthday and wore them to death for the year. This particular year was buy one get on free at the local sneaker spot and those were the two I picked, things were much different back than. In 1987 I got the Jordan 2 for $39.99 on sale .

TTS or possible .5 down if you like them snug.

My best advice is to go TTS and them steam them. Check youtube for a video but it's simple. Basically boil a pot of water and then hold the toes of the shoe over the steam for about 20 seconds. Then throw it straight on your foot. The flyknit will form to your foot for a perfect fit.

post #32665 of 47720
@andrewstevens They are slightly shorter than regular am1. Go with your normal size or go up .5 depending how tight you like them.

Do not size down from your normal am1

Tried this on myself and going up .5 was perfect but TTS may also work for most. Others have said the same thing. I don't recommend going .5 down especially if you want to steam them.

There was 3-4 of us itt that bought them TTS at release and then steamed them. I've never seen anyone in here say go up .5 and I live in this thread.

 

IMO

 

No steam - down .5

Steam - TTS

post #32669 of 47720

I only steamed my iDs, because the toebox was wayyy too roomy and looking funny when the shoe bent as I walked.

 

The normal GR FK AM1 are TTS for me, perfect fit! 

 

Just my two cents

Flyknits were tts for me
