VERY VERY HAPPY. i traded a DS pair of Varsity Red VI's for both pairs. they are in GREAT condition minus the yellowing.
i am beyond happy, just wanted to share, i plan to seaglow the hell out of them, to get them sparkly new. haha... theres almost no creasing on the space jams, and the leather on the V's OMGGG.

honestly now, i see why people complain about the quality of the retros, these space jams are so comfy, and the leather on the V's feels so softttt. anyways.. enjoy

p.s. if anyone can point me to the seaglow thread would be appreciated.... taking these as before pictures...

THESE > 09's

i say that from a comfort prospective. they are like walking on pillows. and these are a size 11, and fit me great (im a true 11.5) its like everything was just way better back then. i even compared the tongues, and the 2000's have a fatter tongue

you are going to get SUPER frustrated once your in the sea glowing process, trust me.

they dont look like they first did, it takes alot of sea glow and time to at least get the sole to look descent, and will literally start to yellow again substancially in like 3 or 4 days if you wear them.
