    Grow up, people have different tastes. And what's up with so many NT posters calling everything "garbage." There's levels. You can love a shoe, like a shoe, be indifferent, dislike a little, or hate. There's even models that may not look good on you but look good on others.

    But no, to some of you a shoe can only be a grail, or garbage. No in between. How lame.

    @3god Oh wait, the year? I thought you meant the model, which is why I chose my handle. Please clarify. :lol:


    I'm predicting a “both” response.

    Not a fan of the brighter royal on the 2017, my brother wore his pair the other night when I saw him. Meh

    But then again I’m one of the very few who prefers the 2013 mold. Like I said not much of a fan of current 1s especially with all the tumbled leather

    Black toes were done perfectly tho

    Let’s get back on track. It’s Friday and the weather here is nice, so it’s a perfect time to wear my favorite pair of shoes. Enough time has passed, so now I’m confident in stating: Black Toe Unions are my 2018 Shoe of the Year. Sorry, Sean Wotherspoons and Blue Levis 4s.

    I was running late so just snapped a quick pic. Didnt have time to adjust the laces or notice that the colors came out weird.

    You held the blue Levi’s that high? I think if they came distressed I’d have them that high

    Yes. To me, they were executed perfectly. When I think of Levis, I think of that color blue and the brown tag and the red levis tag. The shoe screams Levis, and the Jordan 4 was the perfect silhouette. Other than the jumpman on the heel, the rest of the shoe is sheer perfection.

    Putting the shoe size on the brown tag was a great touch. The fact that you can distress them, and it often looks AMAZING, is a dope option. I personally am going to continue wearing and enjoying them as is, and in a year or two if they're beat up or I just feel like changing it up, I'll distress them. They look amazing to me both ways.

    Strange question but does anyone have a set of the black lower/cream upper laces that they don't plan on using and want to get rid of them?

    The fact that someone approved the 15s makes me never want to buy another pair of Jordans again.

    I moved a couple pairs of kicks and went on stockx ready to pull the trigger on some black toes

    after seeing what my size is going for, I think i'll just live vicariously through NT and IG flex posts

    Unfortunately ,probably they won't drop in price .
    As i now want to buy the SBlue Unions(already paid resell for the B.Toes) i check literally every day for the prices,they seem to go up steadily .
    Some sizes even went up almost 100$ in a week-10days or so...

    It might seem that the last couple of days they dipped a bit (like ~50$), but that was probably because stockx had a promotion of 50% discount on seller fees.
    It also depends on the size , some sizes have 50 pairs of that size listed for sale, while other sizes have 5-10 pairs listed .
    If you are on the 5-10 side (like me ) its safe to say the future doesnt look bright . :lol:

    All shoes are garbage grails.

    Maybe when hype dies down in the long run, maybe I’ll get lucky copping the blues for less than the current going rate. Otherwise I refuse to pay it. Would love to have both colorways though

    Price will only go up from here. Cop now if you really want them.
