    Well. If I somehow miss the shadow 10 I’m going for these.

    Maybe you didn’t read all the way to end but I did say “as long as they look right” tho, no?

    never been the biggest fan of the 10s because of the fit of them but I can't resist clean OG cw's so i'll sacrifice the pain for at least 1 more pair (i own many pairs that just sit in the box)

    How do they usually fit? Any other model # you could compare them to?

    The fit might be better. They stepped up III's and IV's (recently). My WC IV's are way better than they felt in early 00s.

    Had a pair of OGs back around 2009 I loved them traded a pair of beat 2005 grapes for them the leather was fantastic and I loved the toe cap. Been waiting for these with the cap. Had every release of steals and got rid of all of them but these will be keepers.

    i absolutely hated my remastered chicago x fit. first time a x ever dug in the back of my ankles

    they curved the back inwards way too much on my pair

    Don’t like the toe cap that much but might be in for a pair.

    That's definitely not good to hear.. I'm always a victim of shoes that do this. 350 V1, Lebron 3s, Nike Lunarcharge, etc.

    I like the toe cap. Without it, to me, it just looks too plain.

    I’m craving for the city series to release the right way. Both previous retro’s of the Chicago X’s have been awful. Hated the checkered liner on the 2012’s. Hated the 45 on the 2015’s. If the Orlando rumor is true Nike May finally be giving the X’s the respect they deserve.

    I think I’ll keep my Steel’s from a couple years ago, I can see why Mike wanted the toe cap removed... :lol:

    Yep, me too. I usually like toe caps, but this one is ugly.

    I’ve never seen a 10 with a toe cap.. was that a potential design when the shoes were made that was nixed back in the day?

    All og steels released with the toe cap. The other colorways were then released with the clean toe.

    Same here. And they don’t look right without the carolina jumpman on the bottom.
