    Not really, previous 12.5 sold for $1100+. But I hear you, everyone is entitled to name their own price.

    I have a 13 BT, but I won't sell it until I can find that 12.5

    seems like the price has dipped quite a bit since the travs came out.

    I think just people wanting to do an even trade for the Travs, so a bunch of unions were dumped last couple weeks at lower prices, they gonna go back up

    I think I may take the plunge on a US 9 Storm Blues.

    10.5. SB dipped slightly, but BT has been consistent.

    I am holding, no rush. Tons of other pairs coming out and people always need money. I wish my 13 would just fit me...

    Are fakes of the Black Toes still easy to tell?

    Black Toe Unions are so amazing that they almost make Jordan 1 lows look not-disgusting. Almost.

    If I had to score them from 1-10, with 10 being the perfect shoe that I would not change a single detail on them:

    Union Black Toes: 9.90 (the tongue could be a little thicker, otherwise perfection)
    Union Storm Blues: 9.20 (looks amazing with yellow laces, not so much with other ones)
    Travis Scotts: 8.25 (great materials, somewhat creative, but not an exciting color and mediocre execution)

    All fakes have the small swooshes still

    It’s the most obvious tell


    Apparently they’re gonna be making fakes with the correct swoosh size but I doubt it

    Same, I wanna put my pairs of each in glass cases and just see them every day.

    Best J's ever.

    Now that I have TS1 in hand, the unions are better to me. Both concepts are cool. But Unions to me are slightly better and more cool. Specifically the laces switching, the yellow stitching, the sole off white, they are wild.

    At least for now.

    The anxiety over TS fakes is not worth it. It's bs and it sucks. So glad my stockx pair check out.

    So that's the best way to compare them? Luckily I have another size on-hand, so will make sure to compare them after I get my pair from SX.

    IMO that's the most obvious tell

    everything else doesn't matter, speaking strictly off seeing them in pictures or in person. the swoosh is the tell til they get it right

    not sure I never seen or held s fake but I doubt the leather or anything such as quality compares but in pictures the quality does look good
