    i wanna know what these terms mean. i've seen them alot in the buy/sell forum and i think they have to do with the condition of the shoe, and i also knowthe words that make up the acronyms, but what do they all mean?
    also if you can put up pic examples that would help, but if thats asking too much, a simple explanation'll be fine. thanks ahead of time NT.

    be eazy.

    p.s.- i wasn't sure what forum to put this in so i'm sorry if this is in the wrong place since it's not strictly applying to J's.

    DS = Dead Stock ( new/unworn )

    VNDS = Very near dead stock ( worn a little bit/ shows very little signs of wear)

    NDS = Near dead stock ( shows sign of wear but still has life)

    Beater = Done for lol

    I think it should be mentioned that "used" goes somewhere between nds and beater. Look at the buy/sell forum though, many shoes are listed as vndswhen they are clearly used.

    People sure don't rate shoes like they used to. When I was heavy into the shoe game and on NT back in 2001-2004, the line between DS and VNDS was a verythin one meaning there were many kicks listed as VNDS that could have been boxed up and returned as new. NDS kicks were kicks that were at least a 8/10. Now Ilook at people's listings and I see shoes that should never even be up for sale listed as NDS, shoes that are clearly lacking in the "newnessfactor", kicks I would rate as 6/10 with VNDS on them. Don't even get me started on how people rate their shoes on the other forum.
