    This is gonna be an unpopular opinion in here, but I personally like the storm blues more than the black toes.

    Nothing wrong with that, everyone has a right to feel how they feel.

    Agreed. Love both but prefer the blue if forced to choose.

    Oh, I'm right there with you. The Storm Blues are more out there than the Black Toes, which I think works best for the overall design approach.

    I have the black toes but prefer the storm blues by a large margin. There are lots of great black toe Js but not nearly as many that are blue aside from the Frags and Game Royals.

    I don't. But please don't hit me with the "you don't own them so you can't judge them" bs that people were throwing around about the frags lol. From the beginning I never really liked the Union Storm Blue over the Black Toe because the blue and red clashed for me. Would I like a pair? sure, would be nice for the collection and complete the Union setup and would get some wears in. I have spare Union Black Toes and wouldn't give up a spare for the Union Storm Blues. Just personal preference.

    I'm not gonna. I just think your mind will change if you have them on hand cause they're honestly done so well.
    But then again, you can say the same thing with me and the Travis Scott 1s since I don't have them on hand :frown:
    Did you hit on the TS1s?

    to me it depends on the laces u use on the unions. i think w/ the stock laces black toe's have em beat, but those yellow laces does the storm blues crazy justice. i went w/ red laces on black toes though.

    That 12.5 seller on Stockx still thinks he can sell at $1550 :)) Been sitting there for a while. Crazy when you see the other prices in the $1000-$1099 range.
