Just realized we have 2 Chinese, 2 Japanese, and 2 Europe based 12s
It's like satin and it's not going to come off easily. It will take quite a bit of effort to cut it up.I'm considering getting the Chinese New Year 12s but just noticed in a youtube video that apparently the black upper is some sort of cutaway material that you can cut off to reveal a color pattern under. I assume that means they aren't leather and am also concerned with the durability if it has parts designed to be cut away. What is the material of the cut away parts and if you want to keep them as is do I need to worry about the cutaway material falling off with wear?
I had been wanting 12s for a long time, was really liking the Chinese New Year ones until I heard of the cut away material. I think I almost prefer the Playoff colorway from several years ago. Should I try to find a pair of Playoffs or go with the Chinese New Years?It doesn't look like it's just gonna come off by itself, it appears to be some type of satin. Take a look a few pages back...
I'm OCD about my 12s and don't want anyone putting their feet in them so I buy as soon as they're released.This is all well and good if you're the type, like myself, to wear immediately, but if you're gonna DS then the same time you wait to wear them is the same time the disco could've happened. Good call on these though, doubt these make it to discount price honestly. I could be wrong though #shrugs
Good choice, I probably would of did the same especially since the playoffs are going for as much as the CNY. This way you have a newer pair of dope 12s, then wait for the playoffs for at the $200 price point... Shouldn't be long for they release again .I couldn't decide whether to get the 12 CNYs or wait to get Playoffs on eBay which I had been wanting for years. After looking at Playoffs on eBay, there are some used ones going for as much as these new CNYs so I finally decided to get the CNYs, just in time too, as soon as I got off the phone with FTL my size was sold out on the website, looks like I may have gotten the last pair in my size. Had I waited just a few more minutes I may have missed them.
