Black leather on Frags definitely looks better then shatters. Maybe just the lighting
It's not just the lighting. Frag black leather is much nicer than the black panels on the shatters. However, personally i like the orange and white feel/texture of the shatters more than the frag white and blue panels.
It's personal preference so im not going to claim "better". The shatter white and orange panels are very grainy, soft and thicker cut. I really like them alot. The black leather panels just feel like the standard cheap jb leather but overall quality is fantastic.
If i could offer jb some criticism:
- tongue tag should have been black with orange writing.
- black leather should have been better
- toe box should have been less bulky like frags and chicagos (yes there is a difference at least on my pair). The leather cut is higher on thhe black toe cap for shatters and the to box has a more angular side profile similar to banneds but i actually prefer the low profile toe box like frag and chicago.
Overall very good shoe glad to have them and looking for another.
