    May 11 is what I’m hearing in terms of a release date (don’t quote that) but saw these at one of the big box stores (not sure if they should have been out). Really wanted to get em from Nike but may go back bc I don’t wanna wait anymore lol.

    Those are nice. The GR’s for this sig have been solid.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'll keep an eye out for XDR stuff on ID and elsewhere. With ID in particular, I'd have to do some math as to whether it's worth paying retail+ID markup for XDR, or just waiting for discounts to double up on a non-XDR pair. Case in point, for the Kyrie 5 I could buy one pair on ID with XDR, or wait until the GR's hit $75 and buy two pairs. Decisions, decisions.


    Tell me about it. I'm not terribly big (6'0", 175 lbs), but change directions a lot on the court. Even in my prime when I played indoors only I was hard on my shoes. But these Westbrooks were absolute outliers even for me. I literally wore them 12 times for no more than 2 hours of game time each. So at most, 24 hours of game action. And they were TOAST.

    I ended up taking them back to the store yesterday. Shout out to the manager on duty at Miami HOH, who was gracious enough to allow me to exchange them there rather than go through the process with Nike. I ended up trying the Kyrie 5's and the KD 12's, and there was no comparison. The KD 12's felt special on my feet. The Kyrie's felt like a budget model by comparison. Hopefully they'll hold up.

    @eaglebball1499 you might want consider the lebron soldier line as well. Deep discounts can be had and they’re always durable.

    I have considered, but I hate the velcro-only system. lol

    Thanks for the suggestion though, and it might be worth revisiting after all.

    damn, i am seeing fakes of the PEs being sold now :lol:

    they really need to tap into some of those gems

    i am not sure how much money they are making with this line since it seems like there aren't many colorways that came out and its seemingly at the end already before wnz3

    I feel the same. Considering both the first model and current have had overwhelmingly positive reviews performance wise (0.2 major positive kudos from people aesthetic wise) I would have thought they’d do a little more with it. Wouldn’t have been mad if they threw these on ID for like a month or a really limited time. Even basic options would have been great. Still waiting to see pics of the lows.

    Chris talked to JB and describes what was going on with the outsole tearing and how they addressed it:

    Should start at 3:50

    Pretty sure it's the low. Not sure why he's being all coy about it. Unless he's already testing a pair.

    You might be right. I was also thinking it could be a tweak to the 0.2 like an updated version, similar to the why not “chaos” where laces were added and the shroud was ditched.

    Not the low but all I expected from the low was the removal of the shroud. More pics on Weartesters.

    What does SE stand for? I like them, but not more than the first release.

    I believe these pics are all GS. Would like to know how the adult model looks.
