the 2014 has a duller color and the quality is okay on them. they run a lil big but you should be fine TTS  

the 2008 are the weakest in quality imo but the color is really nice on em however wearability may be a problem because they are nearly 10 years old so i would just pass on them. 

I can comment on the wearability of the 2008s. I have 2 pairs. One I wear occasionally and they are fine. The other is DS. While the toebox may be off, the color on the 2008s is the closest to the OG. And as long as they aren't stored in a humid environment, they are good to go. My pair are in great shape.

I'm always wary of the wearability of shoes that are more than 5 years old depending on the shoe's construction. i'd just say go for the newer ones since they will last you longer anyways

Totally agree with you on that. I have the '14 retro as well. Didn't buy the '16 as it was basically the same at the '14 with a few tweaks. I wear anything that feels solid and flexible. I can still wear my 1992 Air Challenge Huaraches. Those are tanks. Still holding up well.

I mean the shoe. It's the same one Agassi had on in the picture. What was the shoe called? Was it a sample, etc. smile.gif

Electrolime? Is that on the insole or tongue?

It might be the Nike air on the back. Looking at the white pair it looks like the thread is lava adjacent and so the black probably uses green. Could be on the insole/tongue too though

post #37036 of 37197

post #37037 of 37197
You can slightly see it in this pic

Whats the word on release for them ?
They only show up on Ringit and say sold out
I tried to ask the dude selling the two pairs of 9.5 off the bay where he aquired them
But got no response

I've emailed them several times about different shoes and they never plan to stock any of them. They just post the info based on upcoming stuff. Sometimes the stuff releases, sometimes it doesn't. Most recently this happened with the orange IVs which never released outside of South Africa. But I think it also happened with the perf pack, which did see a bigger release. So these may or may not release. But since I've seen them in multiple sizes other than 9, I'd normally assume they will see some type of release somewhere. But these were probably meant to go along with the fed/team outfits that have similar stripes (kind of like the photo blues matched the us open gear in the past) so that they haven't come out yet isn't a great sign. But no actionable info on when or where yet.

Nice catch not that picture. Looks like it matches well especially the lava color.

Sample vs Release








One of my favorite shoes of all time!!!
post #37042 of 37197

I like the color on the sample better but overall I think the final is better. That white tongue is interesting though. It gives me cold chills thinking about it on the kiwi pair. Im just tired of waiting for info on a kiwi release.

The back of the sample make it look like a hybrid.
post #37044 of 37197
Sample looks so much cleaner to me. Same as the new lavas with the eyelet color change. I know y'all are strict traditionalists but the changes make the retro look better this time (vs the 2006 iiis, for example)
post #37045 of 37197

I don't think the samples look bad but the released pair lolks better, more true to the original. The colors on the heel counter look off. I'm still a little disappointed that they didn't make the pattern closer to the original but a great retro nonetheless. The black tongue looks better too. I don't mind the 2016 Lava's. The color is better than the 2014 despite the gray eyelets but the 2008 materials and shape are closer to the ogs.
post #37046 of 37197

Yeah, definitely glad we didn't get the samples.

Nah, 2008's should be perfectly fine to wear. I have two pairs And absolutely zero issues. The midsoles on them are like bricks, weren't made like shoes of yesteryear.
post #37049 of 37197

My issue with the 2008's is that the outsole tends to get a bit banana-y... at least, my pair does.
