^the tag has a 2012 date
I see where it reads 10-13-01 but where are they dated 2012 ?
011012 numbers, da last being 12 which indicate they were made in 2012
Not true. Here is a tag from a pair of white/red XVIIs that by your logic would indicate these shoes were made in 2006... which they obviously weren't.




blk/silver... not from 2003
nah u right, i forgot da YEAR comes first, THEN da month, THEN day..its too early for me right now...

Dank spotted the actual date, it's usually under the bar code. It indicates the initial production run of the shoe. Those XVII's look nice though. A 12 year "overstock" that looks that good? I guess if you stored them properly.

Reading all this gave me a headache :smh:

I paid retail for these shoes, they came in absolute perfect condition without any noticable flaws.

Wait.. so what happens when time passes and the soles start to yellow... how would you be able to differentiate between the icy blue and the clear sole..

On those Black Cement 3's above...

The font on the box tag price ("$160.00") looks different from all of the pairs/boxes I've seen.

Then, it could just be your pictures/the lighting, but the upper doesn't seem to have as much "texture" as most of the pairs I have seen.

Obviously, these are pretty nit-picky details that I listed, but that's what I see.

They're very much legit despite what many on here refuse to believe.

ah.... well I saw on a forum early January on like sneakernews.com, I believe, and it said that there were rumors that the Space Jam with the blue sole would be coming out. So... not sure... any thoughts on that?

Man stop saying what's grey market and what's not. You have no evidence supporting your claims. Ninja debunk it otherwise its myth. And y the upper powers that be let u talk on a subject you have no idea about baffles me. Dude is making things up as he goes. We picked apart the SJs and concords and Your goofy 88a.We shouldn't have to pick apart every replica to prove its not the same shoe. Where's your evidence? His answer will be they look the same and my china man source says so. Stop lying we ain't buying those wolf tickets

exactly what I've been trying to say... again, ninjahood is ok with CLOSE to the real thing. in everything he buys. If it seems like a deal to him he's just as happy with it as he would be with authentic. jokes on him though since it is NOT a good deal at all he's paying a dumb price for a shoe he knows was recently made and isn't scarce whatsoever. Guess we know which fool just learned da hard way b..........

The soles are the same on your taobao and my concords.

RealSpace jams are not tinted so blue

They will not yellow the same

Proof
No more needs to be said with the dumb "oh once dey yellow dey da same"
They are not and will not. The sole on left will never look like the one on the right.
