You grew up in New York, so what's your team: the Yankees or the Mets?

 

I was a Yankee fan until 1981. That was the year the Yankees were two up on the Dodgers and lost four straight. And George Steinbrenner apologized to the city. He said it was embarrassing. I remember the headlines. I lost in the Wimbledon finals around that time, and I thought, Listen, it's a hell of a lot better than the Mets. They're lucky if they're .500. Look at all the teams that don't even make the play-offs. And taking a crap on the team that just made it to the World Series just seemed lame. Really lame. I was disgusted personally because I knew how difficult it was to get to a final or a World Series. So right then I switched allegiances. That's when I switched from a Yankees fan to a Mets fan. That was the moment.

 

And you're still a Mets fan?

 

Sadly, I'm still a Mets fan.

I remember reading stuff about that but I've seen him at Yankees games. He will flip flop as he is from Queens anyway. And if he's such a mets fan what's he doing at Yankee Stadium in 2016 hmmmmmm?

yeah, OG heel is less bright, therefore more subtle and i like that. also, the OG heel design/pattern is more "zoomed out" as opposed to the more "zoomed in" look of the retros. these are, of course, minor differences and if these are the only "complaints" we have then nike finally did something right. this is as close to OG as it gets. i'm more than happy. can't wait to get them in tmrw. the size 10 i had was taken off my hands IMMEDIATELY as soon as i announced i was letting them go!

Got mine in 24hrs from luisaviaroma which was pretty slick, delivered on a Saturday too

 

A little unhappy for a couple of reasons though, when i took'em out the box the right shoe had a big dirty white widows peak thread hanging out under the black suede portion directly beneath the Nike text, luckily with a sharp knife i was able to push it back under the suede panel....all good with that then.

 

Put'em on, felt fine...went TTS but after one wear they crease so strangely, not even like a standard crease at the sides where your foot bends but because the toebox is so long they're like creasing from the front longways, hard to explain but here's a pic....those white'ish marks arent from scuffs but are the crease marks, feels weird against my foot too.

Wouldn't put me off them but a little disappointed with this after like only an hour or 2 of wear

gotta take the good with the bad with this release. i think, at least at this point, those of us that have them are very fortunate. surprisingly enough, ALOT of ppl in the real world want these, not just on NT and in this thread. hopefully, they make just enough of these to meet demand where everyone who wants them can secure them. i def. don't wanna see these "whored" out like the atc2. it really takes away from the allure imo. this being my favorite shoe ever, other than bc3, i'd rather not see them flooded all over the place, hence under appreciated.

this is def. one of the more interesting releases and although i'll have my pairs today, i'm still keeping a very close eye daily to the "streets", to the web and on tis site as to see what happens. i still have a funny feeling that they will release the OG colorways in limited quantities as it appears they've done with this 1st drop. i think those other colorways like peanut butter/salmon mean.gif and the pink/grey sick.gif will see a wider release in the US.

as for the cut/construction of this shoe, when i tried on the sz 10 i had, and walked a few steps on carpet, i def. noticed slight creasing in weird areas, but i didn't think much of it. this is such a beautiful shoe and its almost spot on to the OG there really isn't much i can complain about even if i wanted to. can't wait to get them today!

I really don't see how mad colorways of a model lessens the allure of the OG colorways, but to each his own. I've legit never seen anyone in real life wearing a pair of ATC2s in the last 2 or 3 years and this is in multiple major cities. So if Nike decides to go the same route with these I wouldn't even care. Even if I did see these everywhere, it still wouldn't matter.

Personally, I hope they make these a GR so multiples can be had on discount like the Lavas and every other Agassi retro.

I think this is the 1st release that I'm watching the tracking info like a darn hawk!!! 😝 DHL has shown where they are every step of the way (currently in Philly). Can't wait for later today
post #34494 of 36908
Damn, should've been paying attention, need a size 11 asap. Hoping they pop up real soon.

The creasing is bad for the first day or so but doesn't get much worse after that.

I hope these do get "whored out".

Hope we have 20 colorways and 3 releases of the OGs.

Hope some pairs can be had for 30$.

I hope thousands adults will rediscover these and thousands of kids can discover these for the first time and fall in love.

I'm no elitist or hypebeast

I don't mind it but I hate when Nike keeps putting out the same cws when other cws have yet to be retroed that bothers me. Still want that sprite cw to drop for the 2s frown.gif

Definitely doubling up if/when release in USA

i don't mind creasing at all, but from all the pics i've seen it does look like you get that funky looking crease as soon as you wear them

The creasing seems like it's been an issue for everyone with pairs so far. I wonder if we were this picky on the og's though or if it was the same. I guess we'll have to wait for the next retro for them to correct it like the toe box on the 08 ATC II's which weren't too bad.
