I think had they used the white leather that they used on the heels of the infrared and ghost green 6 lows these 8s could have been considered. But from what I remember, it was plastic feeling and not soft. No give to it when you pressed your fingers into the leather
thank you sir for the reply. What a dam shame. I own every colorway of 8's aside from the ray allen pe, so I wanted to add these, but I refuse to have any shoe in my collection with bunk leather from here on out. I sold my last bugs bunnys because of the leather, and then found another 2003 pair since I had dogged out my others.
The best leather on any white 8 so far has been the stealth colorway. I was really hoping they'd have leather like that.
the stealth 8s for context. Amazing leather on these. also 3m on the back.
my 2003 bunnies, found them for 80 bucks on ebay. just some minor flaws that can be fixed with angelus.
a personal favorite just for fun womens aqua 8s.
and the womens ice blue gets the honorable mention. awesome quality on these too.
and all my 8s besides playoffs that i forgot to picture.
