The UNC has better leather?

So true. Friends thought I was crazy for selling my Black Cement 3s a week ago. But I know they are either coming Black Friday, Christmas, or most likely next year. For a shoe that I may wear 3x per year, I can wait for that NA version and rock something else. They comin.

Got me thinking, I have a few DS pairs, maybe time to get rid of one and use the funds towards a new pair in 2017.

I would agree that the UNC leather is softer. However, it not necessarily better. The leather used on both could be the same quality but the tanning process quite different.
The tumbling time during processing of the leather is what determines the softness assuming the same grade is used. That's why you can purchase two retail pairs of the same sneaker and one's softer than the other. The primary reason is that the tumbling time during processing was different. Of course there are lots of variables so lets not get too carried away with this.

Bottom line - I was satisfied with the leather on both and felt quality was comparable.

I actually sent an email order to @CityBlueShop with my PMB# in Niagara/NY for these. Since I'm already planning to make a trip to Niagara/NY if I can get these for ~ $115 USD (all-in w/ shipping) it works out better than $247.25 CAD (all-in with tax) plus wasting my time finding a place that still has my size in Toronto area. I'm still waiting for response though ... I'm guessing they are running behind with orders or ran out of my size, I sent it on Monday night :(

Just rec'd my Storm Blues sz 13 invoice from CityBlue. At $112 it was not a hard decision to double up.
It's rare that you can get a 30% discount on a good colorway.

I submitted my email order Monday night, got my secure checkout link around 4pm today ... maybe email or call them if you've been waiting a while for a response, they're probably getting low on popular sizes by now.

A lot of stores don't have these and they're starting to disappear. I agree with ol boy, these will be gone by March
post #1340 of 1490

Silently the hype started to build on these after New Years ended, so these definitely won't be around in-stores by mid-February IMO

Quality on the shoe is nice. The leather is pretty plush on the toe. There really should be no complaints.
