People definitely exaggerated the quality on these... there are portions that are pretty soft, like the ankle collar is softer than the Chi's ankle, but the toe box on these is pretty awful, and that's where it counts most IMO for J1's. They won't get the same nice toe creases that CHI or UNC's get. These are def below CHI and UNC quality overall, actually not even close.
Starting to think people just like building hype, or are delusional. The guy that was giving early reports a month back that these were softer than SBB's... LOL.
welp if thats the case they are all going back!
