anyone else see the nike air on the backtabs rubbing off/discoloration? I want to repaint them but they have a really smooth matte finish.

I'm having my pair restored soon. I just have to give them to my friend and she's take them to this sneaker restoration shop by her.

Just as I expected, the rubber on the heel tabs, will discolor, and fade over time. In retrospect, I don't think I should've copped these. Not for those reasons, but mainly because of the low top height, and the same bad shape.

I recently bought a pair of these from Sole Supremacy and just my luck the left sneaker has a little strip of tumbled leather on it while the rest of the left shoe and the whole right shoe has smooth leather. Did anyone else have this problem with their pair? Maybe I'm just being picky but its really frustrating me having this shoe not be uniform and am thinking of selling them. Check the picture, what pisses me off is that the top of the toe area is all smooth leather then when you go towards the outerside of the sneaker where your pinky toe is, the leather is lightly tumbled. Reminds me of the recent Jordan 1 royal issue where one sneaker had a tumbled leather toe while the other was smooth, its like practically wearing mismatching sneakers. Would like to know if anyone had a similar issue.

That's not a big deal. I'd be more annoyed by the banana toe. Mine aren't like that at all. Not OG slant or anything, but b not curved up.

No chance at all.

No way they drop these in 2016, Do The Right Thing F&F in 2017, Black Cement this year, then drop these again.

The Air Jordan 4 OG Restoration Situation:


The situation starts with my friend (that's a girl) we've been through a lot. Brought her soup when she was sick, been emotional support, and overall trying to be a good person to her. Even though sometimes she was standoffish, I was patient with her and always told her I would be her friend no matter what (I did have feelings for her but put them aside for her happiness). One day she told me about this shoe consignment store that also had a restoration section. I told her about my 4s and how they had scratches, speckle smears, and the paint had chipped off. I sent her photos of them for a quote which she replied with $50. I said that was a great price and that I would give her the pair and the $50. On January 23rd I gave her the pair and the $50 for the restoration. Then on January 31st she told me that she didn't take my shoes yet and that she was busy; which I replied with ok. February 8th (a day after her birthday) I asked if the shoes were ready because I wanted to wear them for All Star Weekend and she replied that she didn't take them yet and didn't have time again. I said alright, just let me know when you give the store the shoes. This past Thursday I asked again if she took the shoes yet and she said no she didn't and she almost got evicted from her apartment but the church paid her rent at the last moment. I said I'm sorry to hear that, if she could give me my shoes and my $50 back I would take them Monday. I ask if she could give them to me that Thursday or Friday before 3 PM and she said neither, she was busy. Then I ask when can she give me them so I could take them Monday and she replied I'm not sure, she could probably take them (to the store) that weekend. Again I tell her to let me know when she does. I text her Saturday if she took the shoes and I receive no response. Monday I call her and she says she's busy right now and that she has the shoes and that she will leave them outside for me to get them and she doesn't have the money and that she will give it back to me at a later date. I told her to not leave the outside (someone could steal them) and asked what did she do with the money? She replied that she will be leaving them outside and that the $50 went to her rent. I arrive at her house to find them behind a bush; uncovered for people to see. I then proceed to take them to the store to have them restored. I thought I could trust her but now I found out I can't and don't even know if I want to continue being friends with her.

Sounds like she stole your 50 and made the whole shoe restoration thing up bro. Did she even show you said quote from the shop or just tell you. Either way that aint no friend and you need to dead that realationship AFTER you get you 50 piece back

Personally, I would do the right thing: let her keep the 50 bucks and end the relationship.

Same...

I’m sure you would’ve probably given her the $50 outright if she explained everything and asked, I know I would’ve...Didn’t have to go with the whole scam to get it...Don’t need to keep people like that around...

Never give your shoes to others for restoration.

Had a similar situation, I knew a person that customized and restored sneakers. We were in a program together, and he showed me his website and all. I ended up giving him my og navy blue low 13s to be reglue. Days passed and he kept coming up with excuses, he later got fired from the program and that was the last that I heard of him!

No way they drop these in 2016, Do The Right Thing F&F in 2017, Black Cement this year, then drop these again.

Although I don’t see this happening. It’s not impossible. Those FandF were not attainable to anyone.

Chicago 1s dropped in 2013 and 2015

White black 9s dropped in CDP 2008 and in 2010

Black cement 4 in 2008 and in 2012

True blue 3 international pair in 2009 and worldwide in 2011

Not unlike Jordan to drop a shoe 2-3 years apart.

Although I highly doubt it.

I don’t think the 3-4 year turnover for anything that has already been remastered applies anymore. Only shoes that could possibly still be a thing for is the 1s. If they do, they won’t be a gr, and something will be distinctly different.

tbh i'm kinda shocked she didn't sell your kicks to make some ends.
my advice is to punt this HARD... just from reading the first couple of sentences - she has little to zero respect for u... u kinda kiss her ***... and like ferris bueller says, "you can't respect somebody who kisses your ***... it just doesn't work."
