    I had to undo the first 3 stitches on the tongue for a better fit. Otherwise joints were wayyyy too difficult to put on and uncomfortable.

    I did try them on and it was a slight hassle but once in it was comfy

    I'm sure the elastic holding the tongue down will break in and loosen up over time.

    That's right! Forgot about that. The OG 5s have elastic straps.

    Checked stock x today and these are chilling at pretty much retail. I was cool with my 06 pair until they decide to do a proper Nike Air Retro but i think I’m just gonna grab em and do minor surgery.

    I didn't want to do it, but I think I gotta do the lace holes so I can control that fat tongue.

    Do these fit true to size? The 2013 fit ok with lots of toe room. I’m thinking about getting these in a 9.5. I’m usually a 9. Hmm

    These are TTS, the 2013 felt a bit slightly roomier from what I can remember compared to these.

    Thank you for this link broski! Grabbed my size last night, and I'm cool with retail plus shipping. Been a minute since I did some customs but I will put laces in these joints too.
