    Good afternoon fellas, sorry to be a bother again but i was hoping you guys could help me out with a legit check (this could possibly end up being an alert on the establishment i got them from). Its the Cool grey volts and these were bought from StockX. I only own the recent gundams and tour yellows and having those in mind, certain things from this pair stuck out as odd.

    Disregarding the obvious terrible box label that reads "supreme" and bad printing, the white midsole seemed off, as far as the paint goes, it looks like someone put way too much on the midsole and it dried before they could wipe it off. i dont recall it being that way on my other pairs, so clunky looking. The rest of the midsole seemed like paint was stripped off or it could of been just terrible QC. The "AIR" stitching on the heel also threw me off, as the "A" is almost stitched onto another stitching. So, do i have a fake box with legit shoes? or are the shoes fake as well? Please let me know if any other pictures would help!

    Appreciate the reply @AirLoMax614! And yeah @jordanhead718212, it's a real bummer because I was ecstatic to have these coming in. For it to be such a bad verifying job, I mean the box label alone is terribly faked, it makes me wonder about my previous Stockx purchases and hesitant for future purchases. Has anyone else gone through a similar situation with Stockx before?

    Nah bro, everything i've gotten from them so far has been authentic. But this isn't the first time i've heard of fakes getting through. This is embarrassing tho, because the box font is so bad it should've been a dead give away. I wouldn't even had opened the box after that.

    I've heard whispers of fakes sneaking through stockx but never seen it happen to anyone. Get your money back.

    @jordanhead718212 yeah word, i feel like I'm going to have to review every purchase under a microscope from now on if their "authenticators" can't even catch the most obvious and fundamental tell-tale signs.

    I'm writing to them now, getting my money back for sure

    Still hoping this happens and it doesn't mysteriously change with zero notice like the Hornets colorway did. None of the UK/Euro sites seem to have them up, and at least one of them is showing a 05/19 date. These are an insta-cop at retail for me.

    Can a normal foot go down .5 in the On Air NYCs? Returned a tts pair and never tried them on like a dummy. I found a pair for a good price half size down.
