    Always wondered why they went with black lace locks?

    These are so darn hard to put on, didn’t want to cut the stitching but it looks like I might have too

    Such a corny release. Should’ve just had laces.

    It’s worth it. I didn’t like the look of the sides laying on the tongue anyway.. def better without the stitching.

    Agreed and what makes it worse is I doubt we will see these any time soon. They couldn’t just wait til 2020 like I’m sure they doing with both fire red 5s.

    Well my I'm happy with my custom. Got 'em for under retail and now with laces. Very happy!

    Had to order lace locks from ebay. Couldn't find any OG with NIKE instead of the Jumpman... so I guess that will have to do, until I can find some with NIKE.

    I forgot about these. One of my top three or four J's that's not a Bulls colorway. I wish it would have been a real release, I don't know what the hell this was...

    It’s a gimmick. I don’t have time for gimmicks. Just give us the real thing.

    FC596232-0E42-4A66-86DF-367F86E1C28F.jpeg Don’t mind if I do cop them, gonna plug some wholes in them n get some Nike laces. I’ll probably use the Pre Grape V’s or White Chrome lace locks for them.

    Nice, can't beat that price, and the custom is easy and then you have OG grapes.

    Yessir, lower ask was $185, I bid $165 to test waters, somebody was eager to let them go for the low, notice the “en route” to StockX. I purchased a different pair of kicks in the middle of the week and I still haven’t gotten notification for particular pair, that they were shipped to StockX. Wouldn’t mind if they cancel the order tbh.

    Picked up a second pair off goat for $130 worn once. Can’t go wrong. The leather on these is BUTTER.

    I am still thinking about getting these. I love grapes. I just wish they would make a real Nike air release. I still wear my 2013 all the time. I also love the suit.

    Just put a bid in after seeing @23mj88 post :smh: :nthat: .. I might hit you up for help on doing this like you suggested bro. But I'm waiting a bit. Just copped like two pair of 1's I wanted for a while and I'm watching these TS joints.

    I did throw up my FR and Grape JM V's on Ebay for pennies to help though.
