Suggestions?

Go up half a size.. I finally tried on a my pair today and them ***** are snug. I hate the inconsistency with sizing....

You tried them on...

You might want to let them break in for a sec before making that call. Let that padding get worked in.

Same here. I wear a 8.5 in all my other 3s and these I needed a 9

Still better than $240 Fromm NDC which included tax. Saved $50 off retail.

Solid price, good pick up.

Exactly, people are willing to accept flaws and in turn will complain less, if a $220 shoe is discounted to $160-190

Maybe slightly snug I guess but these are still TTS. Wouldn't go up .5 up on them.

Im with you on that.  I find that these stretch and mold nicer than previous 3s from the last 6 years that was a GR.

Wow. Can't believe you are returning a classic and sacrificing it for probably some wack pair of NMD's or non-OG colorway retro J's that's taking up unnecessary closet space :{

All my Js are OG CWs only. I have a ton of non Jordan's that I love (kobes, foams, am90, penny, pippens, barkleys etc) and space is limited nowadays that I'm married with kids. And I hate adidas running shoes. But thanks for assuming you knew laugh.gif

The Adidas runners are mad comfy though. I'm still going to get these on discount but I've already had 2 pairs of 2001 retros and a pair of the 2011s. I never even wore the 2011 pair and sold them.

Since you say all your J's are OG colorways only, why then are you sacrificing a pair of OG 3's with Nike Air, a shoe that has never been released in OG form since the original in '88?

 

After all I have a wife and kids too and don't have a lot of space to store my collection either, but these 3s are definitely a must have for "OG reasons." That's just me though.

Probably because these 3s aren't all that special. If I had limited space, and I had to get rid of something it would be these too. Thank God I don't have to do that...couldn't care less about the shoes, I'm talking limited space that is. Im living a life without limits 😂

to each their own
I'm not crazy about white shoes, my personal preference
I'd rather save space for black/cement 3's and 4's coming in the next few years, and the royal penny foams in 3 weeks.

the true blue CW isn't all that special to me, OG or not

Fair enough. I just thought you were gonna come back with that played out "quality sucks" excuse (even though your pair was "flawless") or that "$220 price tag too much" reasoning.

Got mine for $180 after ebates, so I was ok with the price
post #8726 of 9304
I just got my TB pair, thought I'd post pics of them with my WC 88s:




















I am by no means an expert but what jumps out at me is the TB lacking in leather quality, tongue doesn't seem as nice as 88s and thicker EP on TB as discussed. Cut seems a bit different as well, overall feeling 88s much better. I think TB only for die hard 3 lovers, causal fans should pass.

finally bought the TB's from FInishline since i got $35, figured I'd sell my old pair (the 2011 release) to help pay for em, but the right shoe feels really tight on me. 3's have always fit great for me. Has anyone else had issues with these running small? I'm a 12, so finding a 12.5 is nearly impossible. I might just return em :/ Or do you guys think maybe it's just this specific pair? Maybe I could try on a different size 12
