If Nike actually lurks here... stop with the damn tumbled leather and too dark shades on the iconic pairs. Just stop dammit. Shattered Backboards were a gimmick with the tumble, it was appreciated, but stop messing with the classics.

Breds last year were underwhelming, and now we gotta deal with it again on royals :/

Chicago, UNC, and Black Toes were perfect materials/colors.

That blue does not look like the OG. It has the same darkish pigment too it that the Breds from last year have, something about this soft tumble throws the shade off.

im not so sure about that



I wouldn't care anyway, none of the remastered og 1s were spot on to the og

Its fragment blue. Good. Black looks good with this blue. I like it for what it is, they look plush and im sure the tumbled aspect will look fine after a few seconds of ironing.

One thing that sucks about 85s is the plastic swoosh. These kind of beat ogs in that regard.

2017s almost look purple.

EDIT: Well from the side angle, toebox shot looks spot on.

Went pretty hard on Blk/Red and only came out with 1, but that was before the FTL & Co. apps. Hoping they come through on these, will be grinding all possible avenues. Need 2 minimum. Tumble really doesn't bother me, would have liked smooth but they're still looking good so far. At least there's no signs of perforations all over the shoe.. JB always trying to come up with something new and they need to just stick to the basics.

not sure why ppl are surprised about royals having tumbled leather. once we saw '16 breds i pretty much knew royals and, most likely shadows, would get the same treatment. which is exactly why, at that moment, i copped a pair of ds '13 royals from sole supremacy. again, i'm one of the few that likes '13 breds and royals better than the remastered, tumbled pairs. i'll still be copping '17 royals, just as i did '16 breds, but i def. like the smooth leather alot better.

These Royals will end up like SJ and Bred OG 1. Folks complain about this and that but will be the first ones camping out. That tumbled leather looks and feels insane. Plus it hold better against creasing and other imperfections.

 

To all of you complainers please don't try to buy them. We could do without the web traffic on release day. Sleep on these like you did with the Storm Blues. Thank you to all!

Well, if it is true that they're tumbled then I wouldn't have guessed from them since the 2016 version is actually a retro of the 2011 version. My theory (if anyone said the same thing then our theory) is that Nike/Jordan Brand wants the trinity to have the same leather type.

they are just making subtle changes to each shoe when they retro. whether it be the distressed leather or changing the shades of color slightly. they always do that. it just gives them another reason to retro the shoe in the future. make that money JB :hat

Exactly... I'm still going to cop these and the next release even though I hate the tumbled look and sheen on og's. But we can only hope JB will make them properly as they did with the chi's, bt's, metallics one day.

If that was the case don't you think they would put tumbled leather on the other 1s in 2016? I think my theory of only the trinity being tumbled is plausible. Plus Jordan Brand doesn't change the shoe that much.

where was it ever confirmed that '16s were a retro of '11s? it wasn't. i think ppl just assumed and ran with that theory strictly based on the "banned" name attached to the '16s and the tumbled leather. the truth is '16s are just a remastered, re-retro version of breds, period. if '16s were a retro of '11s, i figure '16s would also have the "X" on the heel.
