That's just a sign of Nike skimping though - although I have the whole ACG/mowabb CW set and I didn't really have any problems with them.
But, I don't know of any OGs having that problem, and in 1991 we certainly weren't rotating kicks at nearly the level as we do today. So, the constant stretching, etc. seems suspect, as I'm sure I stretched my OGs more than I did any pair of retros.
