Aside from the cheap materials used, the toe box is what did it for me. I managed to stop the creasing, but I couldn't ever wear them comfortably. I still have mine in a VNDS.
Nope, def. not talking about the OG's. I never owned a pair of OG 4's, Penny 2's or Pippens. But the others I did have in OG form. All were great minus the hyper flights.
I had the OG black toe 14's as a kid and I remember them being very comfortable. Felt like my entire foot was wrapped in cushion. It's a shame to see what Nike and JB has done the last decade. Compromised quality for the bottom line.
Even some of the recent releases have been underwhelming. I picked up the Midnight Navy 16's and I remember the OG's being fantastic. I wore my retro pair yesterday for the whole day and couldn't wait to get out of them.
