Whats the difference between the Nikelab deluxe and pinnacles?
post #46564 of 46939
The deluxe was old shape, pinnacles are the new shape. Amongst other things, but that's the main difference that concerns me. 😉

I bought a pair of deluxe last year and returned them. Pinnacles are way nicer.

So without getting too deep into it here is all you basically need to know.

 

Am1 from 87 till about 2008-2009 has a great "shape" meaning nice mudguard cut, high toe wrap and nice materials. Making the shoe a more triangular and appealing shape. 

 

I tried to find pics that don't have "kermit toe push"

 

1987 big bubble goodness

 

Shape changes a tiny bit as time goes on but for the better IMO. Thicker mudguard.

 

2005 HOA

 

Then 2009 hits and nike says "F U" Am1 lovers. Enjoy this

 

Remind you of anything?

 

Then Nike must have had a rep on NT who kept listening to us whine every single day about the shape and 2017 hits and we get this:

(There are still some imperfections, like the midsole is now kinda weird and curvy..but oh well) 

 

 

 

 

Now, the shape still isn't "perfection" but it is a MASSIVE improvement and for the most part we are satisfied. 

 

Welcome to the AM1 Thread :)

The racers oreos are awesome, I couldn't bring myself to buy them cuz I was wear the AM1 flyknits when I was trying them on and it looked like I didn't need so many oreos.

On that note, change to black laces on the AM1 oreos if anyone has em,

Ok I see. The shape on the deluxe pair isn't that bad IMO. And the leather on them is the best I've seen on a nike in years. Are the pinnacles that much better?

Ended up getting both thanks to @AirThompson. Was eyeing the sails for a while, excited to have them in hand.

I have exactly your situation/pairs. Generally I'm good with sz 12 in most, need 13 in fkrs, but across the board 12.5 is perfect.

I have a wide foot, and suffer the pinky toe crush.


I went with 12.5 in the mushrooms. Perfect fit for my foot. Sails I went with 12. Perfect for my foot.

I think what helps is that the material is softer/pliable than other synthetic materials and there aren't stitching or trim pieces on the interior that dig in, especially after breaking in.

For me, 13 would be too long, too "tall" in the toe box and cause too much heel slippage. I usually end up passing if I have to size up.

 

Another NTer "Dragicon" posts a good "size chart" for several different models in various threads that is a good reference.

So right now pinnacles are the and those blue and red tonals are the only am1s on NDC with the improved shape. Any other essential will have banana shape.

Y'all thank the tonals will hit sales racks ? They're sitting pretty hard now.

Sitting pretty hard?
Well, all I see (at least in Europe) the bigger sizes are sold out in around 1 or 2 days....and it's not a special release or something.

Europe had a bigger AM fan base than the US I thought. The only reason most AM sellout here is because its a QS. You can still get your hands on all the pinnacles except for the shrooms on NDC. I've been able to wait it out until late last year with most releases. The 120, BW, AM Plus OG and a few others I was able to get under $100. This years 97s, spiridon OG, AM 1 OG.... I can't count how many Ls.

Yeah if you attach that QS to something randoms will come around. I hope these jewels are not QS

Can anyone share the 20% code with me? Item I want is under 100 so I can use the promo and give the $20 gift card in exchange.
post #46581 of 46939
I wish I would've pulled the trigger on silt reds when lapstone had there deal going on. Was on the fence and when I finally decided to pull the trigger it sold out in my size. Might just give it up to retail.

I doubt there's many 20% codes out there. Nikes been pretty stingy with codes here lately usually they give out 10% promo codes.
post #46583 of 46939
Man I don't think we got any totals here, but still have all the pinnacles just sitting
post #46584 of 46939

I dont have a pair of Pinnacles, but i have the Jordan X Atmos, and the tonals rune a bit smaller it seems.

I have a size 11 in the pack and they fit perfectly. the tonals felt too tight..........Maybe its the suede used instead of the leather or whatever they used for the elephant print. Pissed because now i have to send them back and wait for 11.5 to come and i wanted to wear them tomorrow.

Any 10% codes to share? I just have no need for this $20 gift card at the moment anyone wants it pm. Would like a promo code in return.

Chat with Nike and ask if the mushroom pinnacles will restock, I got a 10% code that way.

Hi does anyone own the pinnacle ocean fog pair that recently released?

Some reviews say to half size down, and I was wondering if anyone kindly could share some of their experience with sizing on these AM1s?

I have the Fogs and went half down, and most people on this thread seem to have done so too. It depends on your feet though and how you like your shoes to feel. If you have wide feet it might not be advisable as going down a half gave a very snug fit without feeling too tight. I have a normal to narrow foot though.

 

For what it's worth, those who stayed TTS in the Pinnacles have had no complaints, as far as I am aware.

Has anyone seen a Sivas promo code?
