I was thinking of selling them and getting a half size down, but that will take me another 2-3 weeks (i live here in kuwait) so my option is insoles smile.gif hopefuly it wi snug a bit

How do you black out the boost effectively so it looks nice and doesn't fade?

some people like to put insoles in them to fill up the extra space.  I terms of stretching, mine haven't really stretched much but I went .5 down from my ultra boost size.

I dipped Q-Tips in 100% pure acetone (clear in color) and applied them to the inner of the shoe, behind the stripes. I had to saturate the PK with acetone before I could really pull the stripes off. I used my nail to lift off the top 2 corners of the stripe to get it going but once that part was off it wasn't very difficult to remove the stripe. Just be generous with the acetone, it won't hurt the PK. I did this on the red stripe in the pic below.

I actually first used acetone on the front of the stripe on the outside of the shoe but all that did was remove the stripe from the adhesive. It was much more difficult to remove the adhesive from the PK without having the stripe to pull on. I wouldn't recommend doing this. I did this on the blue stripe in the pic below.




You'll get some glue reside on the PK once the stripe is lifted. I just used a soft toothbrush while the PK was still saturated with acetone and scrubbed off the glue into little balls. I had to do this a couple times to get all the residue off. The glue liked to stay in the folds of the PK so it helped folding it to remove the glue. The PK is pretty durable so don't be afraid to scrub at it. I had frayed threads once I was done but I used a lighter (ONCE DRY) to burn these off and it looks great.

I still need the Green Hu, maybe one day...

 

Really hope they do another run of them in more colors though. A charcoal grey pair would be cool.

Perfect.  Thank you for the details!  

 

So using acetone from the INSIDE is the play?

Only thing I see is the subtle grey in the collar in the 2015 vs black in the 2017.
