When I first noticed the bleeding, i used some stain remover i use on clothes that the stain had already set in after the clothes had been dried. Its removed blood, wine, coffee, etc. I opened a claim with Nike, and we'll see what happens, I'm going by my local Nike store to see what they say. I've had the damned shoes 33 days... I guess I just barely missed the window of 30 day return policy. Problem for me is I want the shoes, frankly they're the only 33 CW I REALLY liked. If Nike does issue a voucher I can't even rebuy them they're sold out on NDC. It might be a better decision to just snag the black utilities, because I see this happening all over again as soon as the mesh gets wet/sweaty.
