Earlier this summer when pics of 2015 Bordeauxs began circulating around the sneaker sites, they definitely did not receive the same response that these 2015 Aquas are getting. Hate to beat a dead horse and not trying to derail the thread, but I own the 2015 Bordeaux 7s and the toe bump problem that ppl always bring up goes away when you wear the shoe. The toe box is widened and stretched when you stuff your foot in and forces the bump flat.
Also the "flimsy" feeling of the Bordeauxs this year I'm thinking came from JB using lighter weight materials on them in comparison to retro 7s released prior to 2015. Hell, might as well say all the retro 7s released prior to Bordeauxs. I'll tell you why. The Marvin the martian 7s which succeeded the Bordeauxs this year were also much lighter in weight compared to other retro 7s and had the same bump on the toe. They're the only two like that. Barcelona nights & days, French blues, Hares, N7s, and C&C aren't super light or have widespread pronounced toe box bumps like the Bordeauxs and Marvins do, in my experience. Really wondering if this is because JB eliminated some unseen paneling or something? Or is it them actually using lighter materials to construct the upper or produce the midsole? People with the 2015 aquas in hand have already mentioned that the midsole is softer than the midsole on previous retros. Waiting to have Cosby sweater joints in hand to see if they continue the trend. Anyway if not for the midsoles on the 2015 Bordeauxs being a smidge darker than how OGs midsoles were, they were pretty damn correct. One of my fav releases this year along with these aquas. Hare 7s, Oreo 4s, Chi,UNC,SBB 1s, supreme camo 5s, and anthracite 9s were also good. Plus we're bout to get maroons and chromes.. 2015 was dope.
