2017 higher quality leather but it is the tumbled leather on the swoosh and I know some people don’t like that (I do like it) and the 2017 are much more comfortable IMO
'01's are not mids and it is not even close. They are just more bulkier which make it seem like a mid. The 2011 Banneds are a different story.17 is better imo. 01 are mids essentially and the nubuck swoosh and thin outsole are no bueno. But conversely there’s no tumbles.
