    Thanks, I thought so too. I actually liked the little hit of yellow on both.

    My size 11.5 is 1.6 on SX.... :smh::wow:

    So many more things I can use that money for, and if we are taking sneakers, I'd rather put that type of money towards a PE/Sample i cherish. :nthat:

    Nonetheless, I wish I could have acquired these when they were much cheaper in December, but life & priorities happen, so sometimes it doesn't go your way. :ohwell:

    It’s over man. I’m more than satisfied with these Black Toes. Top 10 Jordan of all time.

    I think it has to do with the current day cycle of sneakers tbh:

    1. You have all the "quick-flip" resellers who sold their pairs for immediate profit.
    2. True enthusiasts/collectors/fans of the model all buying pairs on the secondary market and now have in their collection & wont sell/will wear them.
    3. Lucky individuals who got for retail and wont sell/wearing them or are apart of the savvy group of resellers who plan to sell when prices are like what it's at right now.

    This all leads to a market with very minimal DS Union AJ1's for sale, hence the craziness we are witnessing. The shoe is limited as well, so that doesn't help.

    I think when I looked the other day for both colors, almost all sizes had only 5-15 pairs available on SX. That's nothing.

    It's at the point now, If you want the shoe you gotta pay that price or move on. Unless you know a friend who will work a favorable deal, its a wrap.

    I said these MIGHT be the GOAT shoe. Gonna need much more time to see if that happens. They are definitely already a top 5 Jordan 1, maybe top 3, and a top 10 Jordan of all time. They may very well end up at the time at some point..

    I think it's just crazy that the bigger sizes are priced higher than my size 9. I don't ever see that ish in any other jordan. Looking at Kaws IV prices, I would be much more willing to buy if my 9 was the same price as a 13.

    Anywho, nice to see that rep companies can't seem to get the details right on these, but I'm thinking that each flaw pointed out by the community is another thing they'll be able to try and replicate on the next batch. Glad mine came straight from union so I know it's legit.
