    After all this time of being on the V4 hate train, I'm going to dive in and cop those 990CP4 and see what all the hype is about. This is one of the only colorways of this model that has caught my eye.

    Thanks!

    I know these had some hype behind them but once I had my pair it’s honestly justified. They’re incredible.

  12. I've been eyeing these for a LONG time. But have never worn a 997S Fusion.

    Would you recommend the same fit as standard 997 sizing? Or would you go up half a size?

    Have you used Repel on light grey suede? I've read a few reports of some darkening after application by some users on another forum; they may have not been using the product as directed though, I am not sure. I really need something to protect all my NB 57X, 99X and 1300's which are mostly grey or steel blue. If it does darken just slightly I could probably live with that. It rains nearly 180 days a year where I live so Repel sounds like something I should be using.

    And while I am looking for product advice, does anyone here have experience with NB Essentials Cushioned socks? Are they very thick? Do they wear well? Fit? I am shoe size 13 and they have some in XL size which I have never tried. it says fits size 12-16; I am worried there maybe extra fabric which would make the toe box uncomfortable. I have a feeling the XL will be fine since all of the large socks I buy and only wash in cold water and hang to dry still end up looking like children's socks.

    thanks for the help.

    Is the 1530 a retro of an older silhouette or a reinterpretation of the 1500, like how we have the 997h? I don't remember seeing them until recently.

    Did you find that the spray darkens the suede, I see so many mixed reviews on which products do and which dont
     
  19. Ive used Kiwi brand on salmon toes, FP squads, a lot of my 997's, and AM1. It doesnt change the color at all I would just recommend wiping it of the midsole and logos or any plastic before it dries.

    No worries at all, bro. I’m happy to be of help.

    I’ve used Repel on all of my sneakers and with different colors of suede. I can’t say that I’ve used it on gray but I have definitely used it on white/off white suede before.
    You should spray it evenly and in short bursts. Make sure not to saturate the sneaker. After spraying one of the sneakers, you’re going to want to dab it with a microfiber towel to remove any excess.

    After you have applied the first coat, wait 24 hours and repeat with a second coat.

    Once two coats have been applied, I like to take the suede brush that Jason Markk has and brush the suede.
    Looks amazing after.

    Hope that helps, man.

    Are you located in Seattle?

  22. It's a new model. A mashup of the 1500 and NBX 530

    No, it only darkens temporarily when first applied but color returns to normal once dry in an hour or two.
