    The more I see it the more upset I get that I couldn't hit on the official release. And I wasn't able to hit on the restock because I didn't vote for it.
    It's just a beautiful looking shoe man. My restraint has been good so far, but I've been seeing more and more of it recently and that itch is there :rolleyes. Unfortunately the resale prices have ballooned since then.

    I hear ya. To each his own lol I just refuse to even think about paying anyone for a shoe just because I missed out on the release date.

    I'm normally size 8, so I've been advised to go 7.5 for these, although I think 7 might work too. You know somewhere else besides SX for a lower price?

    SW 97/1’s pop up on grailed for less than aftermarket rate from time to time.

    set up a search for them and just check multi times a day

    I don't trust Grailed. I just did a search for the SW 97/1s and the first one that popped up for $600 is a replica. :lol:

    edit: The next two are also replicas....

    Damn @therefill
    I’m a sz13 so I guess my size isn’t that readily made in fakes

    a worn a few times pair off eBay/IG is your best bet for less than 500/600$ at this point otherwise is 550+$ for ds in any size

    I have a 10.5 that's sitting in a box but it obviously won't fit.

    I voted for them several times and didn't hit. Voting for them determined whether or not someone got them?

    Those who voted had a chance to buy them again if selected through Exclusive Access.

    I'm still on my first of two pairs of these. I've worn them a fair amount and as time has passed since they released, I have to be honest and say I don't love them as much as I thought I would when I bought them. I was super psyched for them leading up to the release, but in real life, I still put the OG silvers far ahead of everything else. Something about the Japan's means they just don't pop like I thought they would. Still really like the shoe, but now I sort of wish I had bought a fourth pair of silvers instead of my second pair of these LOL

    I would not recommend sizing down a full size...especially if you're paying resale.

    Atlantic Blues are my underdog. Hell, when I bought them I just wanted ANY size 14 to try on...I had every intention of returning them to Nike. But it was meant to be :lol:

    Japan/Neons are my #1

    Silver Bullet takes the silver medal.
