    Got my pair of blue Machs from Zappos yesterday after the tip from @tonytobacco. Wearing them all day today, you were right, dude. Best $48 I've spent on shoes in maybe ever? Regardless, these things are cool as eff. Perfect for kicking around my office in, too.

    I cant stop thinking about an am1 swap with the free blue pair i got. I need a black outsole, white mid and preferably red air bag. Its becoming an obsession.

    still on the fence regarding colored air bag to achieve this look

    the back curves on the heel tab and mid sole will match up perfectly

    These came in a couple days ago and I forgot to post up pics. The royal blue colorway on these are beautiful in person!! Definitely not the last colorway I’m going to pick up in these.

    Didn’t realize the BETRUE waffles that released last year were a retro of this colorway. I guess it’s time to put the white laces on my pair.

    Im still butthurt that it was the only OG colorway to release. It was this loud *** green pair, the two black n whites gum soles, and those wack dark blue everything. Also the all black cdg garbage.

    Europe got all the best ones. Like, why on earth couldnt we get this colorway in the US????

    Those did release in the states. I got them from roadrunnersports for ~$50.

    I feel your pain though. The waffles are my favorite.

    They run true to size.

    Also, the light blue / navy pair released this past year as wel.

    @dragicon and...well, everyone else...

    I'm a true 14. I don't mind extra toe room. Will I be okay going TTS on the '79 tailwinds, or is a 13 really necessary?

    Edit: FWIW, I don't have much experience with these older models...but a size 14 Cortez is too small for me.

    These retro runners Nike keeps churning out are low key some of the most slept on sneakers out right now, nice neutrals and dope flavors.

    They look good with jeans/pants with narrow leg openings because they are narrow which creates an aesthetically pleasing silhouette.
