These will be a sell out. However, if Nike decides to make a ton of them and do a few restocks, you may get your wish.

Haven't heard anything about production quantities but my gut says they will release a ton of them.

I am more concerned that the blue is so BLUE that might make me cop a pair.  I grew up with Penny's agents daughter who was the Poston brothers so I was able to meet him and get a signed pic and card.  Wasn't ever able to get the foams outta them though lol

If this sale I have pending goes through, imma put the loot in my homie's account in case they do pop up on the Nike employee site. I def don't believe they would sit there long if on discount.

07s on the left and 17s on the right
2017s are a great retro compared to the others
The color was the first thing I noticed
I had all four royals and i feel this is the closest to the 0g but I honestly cant remember if the 0g was THIS blue, its a nice blue in person, it really vibrant
Things i notice is the 1cent logo on the heel reminds me of the 0g, i think the 0gs had a thick 1 like these
Every thing is about the same though but the blues on the 17s are brighter
The nubuck on my 07s is dry but the 17s i can tell has a nice/decent nubuck
The height is on point, it's practically the same as the 07s which were if not higher than the 0gs
Toe boxes are the same, wish they were closer to the 0gs though
The white nitted things in the bootie are more prominent on the 17s
The bootie is thinner than the 07s
The shape is about the same but my 07s seem more wider which i know is from them forming to my foot over the years
One big thing is the grooves in the foamposite still isn't right, the 07s are the closest to the 0gs with those deep grooves and I believe the 17s are on par with the 11s
The last thing is the foamposite it self is once again softer than the 07s, as you can see in the picture my 07s are well worn and balled in once, if you look at where the sole meets the upper there are no creases in the foam at all and i weight 2 bill at least
On my 11s creases was very present from a few wears and im hoping these as tough as the 07s but from the feel it is softer
Sorry bout the run on sentences
Im happy with them to be honest, the color is great, the sole is perfect, the quality is there other than the overall foam being a bit softer and grooves
I think everyone who buys are gonna be very happy with these honestly

Thanks for that info. I'll try for the 17s and if I get them will keep them ds for a while to try and find 07s for a good price. Maybe people start unloading ds 07s now. If not, I'll just keep the 17s.

@lilAJ Thanks for the comparo, Rep'd.

For me, the OGs and the 07s were similar in that shade of blue(darker,deeper). The '11s and the '17s (in the pic) look to have that brighter blue. Sad to see, the ridges are not the same. And the same soft foamposite material... mean.gif

Its something about a new pair of royals with a fresh icy sole that just makes it top 5 in my opinion, with the blue pop it reminds me of the 0gs which i thank nike for because since the 0gs the blue just have been getting darker and darker from the title they put on it (dark neon royal)
Never had the 0g box but was the 0gs titled neon blue?

No problem, and i had all 3 before the 17s and i coulda sworn the the 0gs was a bit brighter than the 07s and the 11s was a duller shade? The rigdes i know i will ignore but i just really wish the foam was a bit denser, it doesn't feel worse than the past foam from memory but i only own all the royals and a pair of the pink ones for a brief moment
post #39415 of 43054

IIRC didn't the 2011 version have a more metallic look to them vs the OG and the 07, I do remember that was the complaint about the 2011 at the time around here.

Must be the lighting in different pics, but idk, maybe I need to look closer. I've seen pics on feet and have been able to tell what year off rip. Idk.

but the color isnt what had been a give away before. the mold/shape is pretty obvious to people like us as well as the 07s have the more opaque soles.
