    Worth the wait. Able to get for about $75 from their refund and they sent a 15% off coupon! 1E311D9A-1EA8-46A8-834B-7FA9C217EA6F.jpeg 0DABA9D1-7CD3-47F8-B10F-EC42BE63A747.jpeg

    Damn it man!! This happened to 50+ pairs of AF1s of mine from 2000-2006. Some I still have because of value and nostalgia purposes, but I donated the rest to homeless men’s shelters. It only happened to my AF1s and none of my older basketball sneakers from the early 2000s.

    Decided not to risk it and order one of the last UK9.5 pairs off NDC.

    Some pics that aided that decision :lol:

    Went ahead and got mines off NdC since I wear the worst possible size. My size never makes it to discount. Hate being a 7.5.

    How much of a difference does that make on foot? I know it's a different sole/unit than Jordan 1s, but my '01 Jordan 1s don't feel too bad.

    It's been ages since I have posted anything, but I thought I would share something beneficial.
    It's amazing what water and a little heat can do. I am so sick and tired of the terrible shape Nike still cranks out.
    Completely ridiculous. Nobody wants 90 degree right angle toe shapes! All they need to do is reconfigure the cuts and angles
    of the leather patterns.
    Before and after.

    Agreed. The new shapes are terrible. The reshape looks way better it came out pretty good. What did you use a shoe tree, Or just stuffing them?

    No shoe tree in that pic. Wrapped a wet white tshirt around the toe, and then ironed it on medium heat. That takes the cliff toe and flattens it out. It stays that way once it is done.

    I’m always down to customize an AF1, so it was a no brainer when I saw there was a customization station at Nike Miami today. Wasn’t crazy about the oversize custom swooshes, so I ended up taking off the swooshes just retrace those to get the proper size. Instead of using the provided custom Miami tongue tags, I unstitched the existing tongue tag from the inside, then had the exposed side sewn onto the tongue— making for a subtle detail. Next up was meticulously coloring in the swooshes on the heel tab. Last step was adding the rose gold aglets and custom RGLR dubraes FTW.

    Un-PlayStations

    For those who got lost out during E3 :lol:
    Still gets me mad.

    These are nice though. I would have preferred a nice leather upper but I'll take the Nubuck still.
