Nike Air Huarache Trainer: Black/Cool Blue 2/5/15, PRM Medicine Balls out now - Page 7
Mine had a few creases and the toebox on the left pair was kinda wavy. I bought mine in store and the box was perfectly intact, and the shoe paper was unfolded and unwrinkled. My pair had never been opened, so any creases are on Nikes behalf. I wouldn't be so fast to blame the seller
thanx yall for knowing im not alone, i hate to suffer alone lol.. creases on good leather is not a good thing to me cause I do not crease my shoes at all. I got a pair of red/blk huaraches from years ago I wear daily till this day and they have no creases.
what outfits can go with these? i have over 80 hats and clothes like krazy and nothing matches my huaraches lol.
And what's wrong with a white T, and whatever fitted you feel like wearing that day?
i rarely do white tee unless it's ralph lauren tee.. those corner store thick collar tees suck.. i want something that will bring out the berry look and if i do decide to wear plain white tee i got to have a hat to match and thats difficult for this color shoe
I have a polo from J.Crew that I realized is the exact same color as the berry. Also the green from my A's fitted matches the emerald.
But I don't like to match like that. A plain colored tee, polo,or button shirt with some blue, khaki, or black denim. Maybe a black or navy Astros fitted. Subtle clothes let the kicks stand out
i'll love to see a comparison, i don't think much changed besides the color of the berry.. i think the og's had a darker berry, but finding a og pair is rare.. I want to see these sander clause huaraches they talking about, i don't recall ever seeing them before.
Well besides it being fuchsia instead of violet, there's also the lack of the white area on the instep of the midsole . They are also missing the purple accent on the heel of the midsole as well. Not to mention the boxy toebox and what seems like an elongated shape.
Girl I follow on IG has an OG pair and recently unds'd it. She's an NTer too, I just don't lnow her sn.
There's better pics on IG like these:
But filters on IG ruin it, so I want to see side by side comparisons

Again, I wouldn't put it past Nike to send a dirty shoe past QC. I ended up getting my pair on release day from a reputable shop, and there were dirty spots on the laces and what appeared to be cookie crumbs under the mesh on the strap. But I could tell my box hadn't even been opened since it left the factory.

my pair from fa just came in and it's a little creased. not too concerned about that. what really bothers me are the colors. they are so blatantly off from the og that as i suspected it's like it's not the same shoe i remember. the berry and (especially) the green should be darker. oh well, they'll remain on ice til summer.
The purple is what bothers me. It's almost pink.
Gotta disagree. I think they'll hold up well for the guy. Just got mine in today and unless you are blind you can see that they used a premium genuine leather on these which I know for a fact will hold up better than most retros today. I was blown away by the quality of the leather. Make me ask why Nike can't always use this on retros. Also it's crazy to see some say they came somewhat pre creased. Thats fine because what good leather is supposed to do. Be happy.
Are sneakers dubbed sportswear because they have older technology or because Nike decides to manufacture them in an inferior manner? Put another way, if there was a way to sell this retro version of the shoe at the same time as when the shoe first released in 91-92 would people notice a difference between the shoes?
