My theory from back when these released was that JB made these particular tongues differently so as to make them more durable and to avoid the "patchy" appearance previous AJ V Retro tongues would get when the 3M coating started to get wear and tear, but I never could figure out what kind of material was used on the 2016's, although it obviously wasn't just a 3M coating. After getting in the AJ V reflective jacket this week and comparing it to the shoes, the tongues seem to be made of the same reflective polyester used on the jacket (which also seems to contain the same tech Nike put into the Vapor jackets a few years back), but of course with thicker padding behind it on the tongues.

After wearing the shoes at least a few times a week since release, my tongues are still in pretty much perfect condition and still every bit as reflective, and the shoes themselves are holding up remarkably well. To me these were unquestionably the most well made Retro of 2016, aside from the existing insole mold issues a couple people have had, which seem to be pretty isolated.

Been wearing mine almost non stop since release and the tongues are holding up well. No chipping, cracking, flaking or change in reflectivity at the creased portions.

10.5 for me, but I need to step to the plate. No excuse on my end. Wife wanted to buy on release day and I flaked out. Beyond PO'd now.

Does the nubuck do well if caught in the rain or do I need waterproofer ?

I've had mine get splashed with water, and they have gotten small, slight water spots, but I've gotten them off by using a small amount of generic nubuck cleaner sprayed onto a plain black hand towel.

was able to get the restock from the other day off of eastbay and just got the package delivered.
didn't know eastbay was about trying to finesse their customers LMAO!
it didn't come in the original box, but in a generic box. not only did that piss me off, but they don't offer free return shipping!
they do provide a return label but $6.99 is deducted from the return SMH!!

after about 20 minutes of chat, i was able to get their "supervisor" to give me $5 gift card $7 giftcard free shipping with full refund!



**original post got deleted because NT said i was buying/selling but it was a joke lol**

Oh I've definitely enjoyed the hell out of them. More than any pair I've bought in a long time. But not for the last week because it's been nothing but rain in SoCal.

Still, my favorite release of 2016 by far. And I enjoyed the apparel line too. The reflective AJ V jacket is INSANE. They went all out with it. Great quality, and it's noticeably heavier than the average windbreaker. I love it. I never would've paid $500 for it, but I was able to get a deal on a still tagged DS one in my size for less than half that and I jumped on it. One of these days I'll post pics.

Pics of the jacket in question? Tbh Im not too familiar with the apparel released alongside these this last year.

I also got some questions about the "Flight 23" line released circa 1990. Got some old shirts and wondering if it was a bootleg line or they were sanctioned to use the Jumpman and MJs likeness?

Wow, I just saw that jacket on FTL earlier and thought I read it wrong.. $500 is insane! It looks kinda cool (saw it in store) but never looked at the tags. They're definitely losing their minds, a $500 accessory for a $220 pair of sneaks?!.. laugh.gif

Honestly, the jacket is REALLY well made. But they were smoking thinking that $500 was a good starting price. I know the Nike Vapor jackets with the reflective tech weren't cheap, but those were also marketed to runners where the reflectiveness was a practical detail for use while running at night and in the elements. In this case, the reflectiveness is basically a fashion detail primarily to match the AJ V tongue. I can't imagine they made, or sold, a whole lot of them. I know a few of these hit discount stores, but I never saw them in any outlets. It just so happened that a previous seller that I know came across ONE and decided to sell it for barely over what he paid, otherwise I might never have gotten one.
