    It obviously is. Idk people keep saying they’re confused as to whether it’s nubuck or suede when there’s clearly weathered grained leather on the upper.

    There's nothing clear about it... looks like suede. Regular *** "leather" is fine for a winter shoe.

    Looks like weathered, worn down leather to me but what do I know. I guess the ashy-ness makes some think that they could be suede which I can understand but I don’t know what suede/nubuck shoe has grains in it like this lol. So that’s why I say it’s clearly leather.

    Makes a lot more sense that its worn Leather considering how poorly Suede or Nubuck would hold up to the moisture.

    Maybe it's a Scotchguarded suede or leather like Vans uses on it's weatherproof MTE line?

    Clean colorway, I’m surprised they didn’t update that midsole/sole

    That midsole is not going to last long in the snow

    If I’m not mistaken the last winter 12s were waterproof, even if they have thicker lining I’m good.
    I live in the Tampa area and it rains seems like everyday in the spring summer time.
    So if it prevents me from having wet feet and soggy socks I’m good

    Saw your post under Hanzuying's post and was so annoyed.. I hate the numbers game man. Hopefully its either not true or it wont affect the hopefully low demand.

    Many pairs, or a few pairs, these personally are a must. I love the shade of blue used, the materials look good, and I love the color blocking and colors used. I know they’re not the same color, but with the winter theme, and the wool looking collar/liner, I totally get Tinker 3 Bio Beige vibes, and I love that shoe.

    These turned out really nice. Was interested and waiting for pics since I was waiting for a discount on the 12s that I never got. Honestly, I'm more hyped for these than the 11s. Playoff 11s definitely grail status but I've had every release. I'm not paying resale so I'm gonna stay woke on these

    Why not put out a general release of the Em Carhartts, Undefeateds and the two F&F Travis joints (olive and purple)?
