Is keeping the tissue paper in shoe boxes a bad idea? I've seen people say to take it out but I never knew why.
I know what it is, and I understand it's inevitable after time. But I have 2-3 year old sneakers that are yellowed already. That's some bulli**** to me...if we can put a man on the moon, we should be able to figure out a way to slow down yellowing. It makes me wanna pass on icy soles, def a factor.Oxidation is what makes the sneaker
It happens to just about everything on the planet, even metals....
Thanks a lot homie! I almost copped a 10.5 from Craigslist but they would have been too small. Saved me some time and money!I think the 2011 black metallic 5s ran closer to true to size. These fire red 5s are definitely bigger than the black metallic 5s for sure.
I've always known about the sunlight issue. I keep them in boxes, in a walk in closet. closet is dry, I can def see heat being an issue. The shelves are kinda high, and heat rises...damn no goodie. Smh. Never even thought about heat...anybody wrap them in plastic wrap? I heard that Slows it down?2-3 years and it started yellowing indicates overexposure to light. if they've been sitting on your shelves in complete darkness, it's probably the heat/humid in your area.
Why are you laughing about sounding straight up dumb?copped, but the quality of these are garbage compared to OG pairs, maybe you guys are hatin' since you don't have an og pair in your hands. but man oh man i seriously just got these cause the box lmfao. Thats the only thing i give these release over the OGs lol
Do you know what OG means? It means originalcopped, but the quality of these are garbage compared to OG pairs, maybe you guys are hatin' since you don't have an og pair in your hands. but man oh man i seriously just got these cause the box lmfao. Thats the only thing i give these release over the OGs lol
The thing is though is that the people complaining about creasing don't have a leg to stand on. Shoes crease....ALL of them. The OGs creased and retros crease...they just crease differently. So why not bless us with that OG quality leather?i wish yall would stop complaining about the leather they tried to give us a leather that wouldnt crease these past couple of retros cus people
were complaining about creasing now that we have a more tougher leather people complain that its too hard i swear yall dudes is on TURKEY TIME
I think what happens is that dudes RSVP and then don't pick up the shoes. I'm pretty sure that the store RSVPs all of their pairs on Thursday. It's nice that they do FCFS afterwards. Nike Portland always does a second RSVP on release day after the initial pickup window is over.These *** holes had mad pairs in stock, full size runs. I don't understand why people didn't get twitter RSVP's when they tweet this at 11 am saying first come first serve for all sizes, they STILL have sizes in stock...if u spend the effort to RSVP u should get a size if they have it in stock, this pissed me off today. I copped off NDC so it's all good, but I would have preferred to cop in store to check for quality issues and have them in hand. I just don't get it...
You do realize that the box for the 2013s is patterned after the OGs. So where's this advantage you're speaking of?copped, but the quality of these are garbage compared to OG pairs, maybe you guys are hatin' since you don't have an og pair in your hands. but man oh man i seriously just got these cause the box lmfao. Thats the only thing i give these release over the OGs lol
Its one thing to have a legit discussion about the quality of materials on JB releases, I think everyone would appreciate it if it was the top quality leather possible. It's another thing for people to come in and "brag" over and over in the same thread that they didn't cop, and hate on everyone who did because of the "crap" materials that they know damn well they've bought on other shoes and/or will continue to in the future. It's the hater mentality that people don't like. I'm all for JB stepping the game up on better materials, but this discussion has gone on and on release after release and they still sell out in minutes regardless.I get tired of people acting like you can't have a negative opinion about a shoe and voice it on a sneaker forum. The truth is that these materials get worse as time goes on, while the prices rise. Why is that supposed to be overlooked?
