    Congrats on the pickup.

    I'd say the stock black laces on these look a lot better than what they appear in pics. They just look off in pics for some reason imo. But when you actually lace them up, they look pretty good.

    Definitely. I think people slept on these more though. I've seen people in the J1 thread straight up call these garbage :lol: Dudes at bare minimum bought up the HR's to customize but they hated on these a lot which I always felt showed a lot of hype beast colors because this is damn near a RSBB twin.

    I'm personally not a wheat fan, but these were even a no brainer for me. It's a beautiful shoe and so versatile.

    @spoonmanofthehour Yes!! I'm with you all the way. I can't get with the wheat stuff either; I always feel like that should be left to Timbs lol. But what did it for me was the Escape vibes which is why red laces are a must but these literally are perfect with sail or black laces.

    Right on. Definitely Escape vibes. I think it says a lot about a shoe when so many different laces compliment it. :nthat:

    Get the Hyper Royals, they come with sail laces. I thought about putting them in but I honestly think the black ones look better, contrast is good.

    These and the game royals are the sleeper 1s of the year for me. The year has been full of great 1s so let’s just appreciate it because there may not be another year like it for sometime

    I've gotten flawed pairs like that too. it's a crappy feeling especially since you're paying resale, but stockx is probably less to blame than sellers who dump the worst pairs. at the same time, I know I'd do the same as a seller too.

    Guna have to throw it back in Stock X circulation I don't want these lol. Called my boy up at Shiekh today and asked if they got any left. He said he will check and to call back in 1 hour. Called back later and he said he found a size 10 special ordered it for me for retail and will be there in 7 business days :smile:

    Dope fit funny I started with the red laces and then the black. Now I’m rocking the white I feel it’s the best look with this outfit.

    Appreciate it. And I felt the same way red definitely pops but the sail laces are more diverse.
