    Official Air Jordan 1 Retro High Thread Vol: Best Model/Thread

    Nah, not really, I live in Canada though and the snow is gonna come soon so figured I should get another wear in before it’s nothing but beaters for a few months haha.

    A decent amount. Even some stars.

    Broke out the ‘85’s today.

    Official Air Jordan 1 Retro High Thread Vol: Best Model/Thread

    I’ve seen both styles of R on authentic J1’s obtained at retail. Don’t think this is a decent authenticity check anymore. Likely has more to do with the factory/mold being used on the sole. Wouldn’t write a pair off over this.

    The royal laces on ‘85’s just age into a faded purple. The red laces in ‘85 breds tend to turn orange.

    Personally I think they have some of the best material of any of the remastered retros. The red leather is pretty unique. Haven’t felt anything like it on any other Jordan shoe. Black parts are plastic, but swoosh on the 85 was too.

    I know I’ll probably catch some hate for this, but I caught too many L’s on the unions. Copped both sets of laces from Slickies laces. The gold are a little long for my 9.5, but I’m loving the look of both in these. Gym reds are very underrated IMO, and that’s coming from someone who already...

    I find it pretty funny that for the gym red release youth pairs came with a lace bag that would clearly be deemed fake on a men’s size pair haha.

    Official Air Jordan 1 Retro High Thread Vol: Best Model/Thread

    The shine on the black parts of the gym red pair has literally nothing to do with “quality” of leather. It’s a coating applied with the paint. If you take the time to push on the black leather of the gym reds you’d see it’s great quality. There’s some soft give to it, but still feels sturdy and...

    Hate to be one of those guys, but people are gonna regret sleeping on the gym reds. Real nice in person. Happy to not take an L for a change too.

    Jordan 1 x Nike SB QS!!!!

    What makes that extra weird is the pair they show on the site has a scuff on the yellow part haha. Feel like they’d have to reject a lot of pairs over that.

    Jordan 1 x Nike SB QS!!!!

    Mine doesn't have quite that much space, but on my stockX pair one of the shoes in the pair has a space like that, and the other doesn't. Just bad QC. Not the first pair I've had with an issue like that.

    Enough of trying to resell these... let's see some detailed shots of the shoes in question please...

    Jordan 1 x Nike SB QS!!!!

    Would like to see more pics of the actual pair in here... clearly the box and lace bags are off, but let's see what the glaring issues are with these fakes from the perspective of the actual shoes. Especially if this is what they call "godkiller." Really want to see how we can spot the...

    I think this is the first time I've seen them referred to as Reverse Chi's, can't believe I didn't see it, and dammit it's a nickname that makes sense haha. They're growing on me... though I'd prefer a blue version like on the old '85 sample page.

    Yeah my LA/CHI have the QR Code tag. Do yours? Mine is dated 11/14/18 02/18/19.

    Jordan 1 x Nike SB QS!!!!

    Might just be how dark my first pic was. You can see they’re painted purple when I shine a bright light on it, but without a light on it it’s a very shiny slick wet black look across the full wings logos (and the R and D are touching on one, didn’t that used to be a tell?)... It definitely seems...

    Jordan 1 x Nike SB QS!!!!

    Interesting point... can anyone else who thought my pair was real chime in on the wings logo situation with a comparison of your authentic pairs? Thanks! Just when I was about to rest easy haha. Ugh.

    Jordan 1 x Nike SB QS!!!!

    Thanks! And thanks a lot to everyone else who took the time to comment on my pair! It's just like my usual luck to get a pair with some weirdness to make me question my first time using stockX. :rolleyes
