    It's hard to say. Evey shoe is different. Do you know how they were stored?

    Everyone on here is going to say that they will crumble. But you will never know unless you try. I have a VNDS pair of '99 Columbia IV's that havenot crubled on my. They are very wearable. It is a coin flipper on a DS pair.

    This is one way to look at it. Chances are they will be like the latest round of retros, though. It all boils down to the style you like. Some refuse to gowith the newer retros due to shape and materials. It all comes down to how much you like the older retros. Maybe you want both?? I know I do. I just need tofind a decent pair of '99's and then wait for the latest release.

    No guarantee on 99 IVS.

    I usually look for a worn pair

    I think it's a gamble bro. Even if they do re retro these later this year, they won't even be close. If I could find a pair for a great deal, I'dhave to try and wear them.
    I'd say getting a VNDS pair would be the way to go.

    IMO 99 IVs are not fit to wear coz of their very fragile condition and crackings are inevitable.. If I'll buy those I'll just keep them for collectionand never wear them at all.

    maybe the cement iv's that are supposed to drop later this year will end up being fusions so you should probably take that into consideration too.

    i won't even consider ds iv's just because i know they're more likely to crumble. i don't care if they've been stored in the deepestdarekest depths of the underworld. find some gently used but not abused. good luck.

    Most likely will crack. But maybe the rumors are true about the new release.

    eff that. i'm about to buy a pair as well. there is no better shoe under the sun. i'll definitely try to wear them and if they crumble, so be it. Ifnot, then I'll love them doubly. i view it as rescuing a shoe previously held hostage by DS-hood. It's a roll of the dice, sure, but these shoesdeserve the gamble. There should not be DS pairs out there still.

    This helps, but not forever. I have both '99 bred's and white cements, the cements eventually blew up on me, my breds are still cool but Ibaby the eff out of them. As for the rumor that these will retro, I'm sure they will but unfortunately they'll look and feel like dooquee. Tough callhomie, but chances are the soles will blow up on ya no matter if there deadstock, your weight, or the climate.
