Sorry. Just caught up with the thread. I received a few PMs for "on feet" pictures as well as questions as to where I bought them. I bought them from a Nike outlet store last year, but as ColdCity pointed out, they can be bought on NDC. I bought both large and medium and ended up using the large for my Kobe Vs as the mediums couldn't fully be tied as seen below...
In regards to the Nike lace holders, I actually like and prefer them so they are staying. As for the patent leather yellowing, that possibility wasn't enough reason for me to pass and if or when that time comes, I would have fully gotten my money's worth already...

my eastbay order is also confirmed,maybe my mind will be changedwhen I get mine in. If not,back they go.
i agree, not bad. profit is well... profit
im just saying, most were expecting these to go for $300+ because they are XI lows.

im glad hype is not big with these. i hope prices drop just because i dont have a pair. makes it easier for myself and my pockets
To me the profit isn't even that much.  If you sell on Ebay or Niketalk, you are really only making a few bucks.  $200 via Ebay = $149 with tax purchase, $19 ebay fees (with picture pack), $6 paypal fees, $12-17 shipping via USPS priority mail.  Thats $186-$191 leaving you with a whopping $14-$9 profit!  If you sold on NT, you would save the $19 in ebay fees for a modest $28-$33 profit.  Not terrible, but with low ballers on here you would be lucky to get $200.  I bought a pair at a local store and since I had a giftcard tried to get one for hahas on eastbay.  I was able to get the pair from eastbay, and was thinking of selling them. After looking at the pair I got from the store, the eastbay pair will find it's way to the back of my closet as a reserve.  To me, this has been the release of the year so far, I love these!

If you are going to store these, get that paper out of the box. It without a doubt speeds up the yellowing process.

So the medium is a good fit? As they only have medium and small left on the site...

Happy with my purchase. Went to pick these up with my girl and even she fully appreciated what a hot summer shoe this is.

Can't wait to rock em, my pair will definitely be hitting the streets in the next week or two now that we're finally seeing some terrific weather.

Medium is an okay fit, but I'd go large if they ever become available. Definitely don't go for the small as I don't even think that length could make it through all the loops...
As for people's concerns about the laces rubbing off dye on the shoe, I have never once encountered that problem on any shoe with colored laces...
