    Question about M997NV, did they recently re-release them again? Saw them at a couple stores but not on any of the sneaker news sites. Anything change year to year about them?

    Awesome. Super refreshing to see someone wear hyped kicks to the ground. You oughta give these a deep SneakersER clean - could easily restore some life into them.

    Is sneakerser the best option? The shape has held up...

    I don't want to damage the suede at all it still soft to the touch!

    Has an overseas shop ever got a miUSA for a collab? I think it would be cool if we could get USA shops working with Flimby and overseas shops working with NB USA for a change. My guess is another 997S in this case however.
    Edit: Forgot that Concepts 991.5, maybe this is AFEW’s turn.

    In my experience, yes. I regularly give my NBs the sneakers ER treatment. Here's what you'll need (in this order) to bring the shoes back to life:

    I swear by those erasers, I just get mine at walmart for like, 4 bucks with the little brush. I've made them work wonders.

    I want to cry lol

    First time seeing v5.

    They ruined them. They de-layered and made them look cheap. The plastic looks cheap. Just not good. Silhouette is ruined by the thinner heal. So disappointing. V4/V3 forever.

    Just got back from a cruise where the average passenger was comfortably into their 70s. You 990v4 people would have been in heaven.
