@ considering buying those.

when looking for uptempo 3's you should know there are plenty of fakes of them out there. and if you checked this guys feedback, you'd see he'ssold more than a few pairs of fake shoes.

anyway. it depends how they were stored. the pair i bought was super lightly worn and has held up just fine with wear for the past year or so. if the bubblesare flat, chances are the foam in the air bubbles will crumble on you.

Production tag looks fake. Bootleg/fake CB34's, Pippen's 1, Uptempos 3 and others have the same production tag with date 960911. Dontbuy!!

i wouldn't risk it. i bought a pair of white/navys and black/silvers within the last 3 years, and the air units separated from the heels on both pair.Either i'm unlucky of the mold for these don't hold up well over time.

zeke laid it out...don't cop those. always make sure you're buying from a reputable seller. as far as the uptempo 3 itself goes....I have to side withAceBoogie on this one. I copped a pair of DS total max uptempos a while ago and went to try them on....I started hearing this *fwoot* kind of suction sound andafter fifteen minutes I noticed one of the air units was deflating. I ended up reselling them....smh. It's your money though....you might find a good pair,but you won't know until you try them on.

i thought it was impossible to make fake OG nike, when they come with the OG box. well i kinda figured that some of them had to be fake! cause how in the hellpeople are saling DS shoes that came out during the mid and late 90's.

I have 2 pairs of OGs. on both shoes, the soles fell off. I USED SHOE GOO on one. Seems to be ok. But very iffy about wearing the shoes. DOES ANYONE KNOW IF ASHOE REPAIR CAN FIX THIS??
