He's asking about the overall quality of the 2005 X retro, not a specific shoe where a picture would be required.

Which colorway? Steels?

Based on my pair.

Quality of the uppers is decent.
Grey paint on the midsole/outsole started to scrape off on the first wear.
Cushioning is a little thin, especially at the heel.

Sizing is about true, but toe box is a little restrictive.

That and the price has skyrocketed on X's and for what reason? There was so much hate on the X's as being the worst Jordan of all time like 4 or 5years ago. Now $200 for some retros? What the....

I love steels have 2 pairs, they do crease fairly quickly but thats just because of the leather they used. I love those babies though best 10 imo. Next tochicago and NY.

Retro Xs run about a half size small. I'm an 11.5 but I have to get a 12. I tried an 11.5 and it was punishment on my feet...

glad i'm not the only one. i got a good deal on a pair and was so pumped when i got them. i put them on immediately and a couple hours lateri realized that only my right shoe was making all kinds of noise. dont remember that being a problem back in the day.

I liked them when they came out. Seem comfortable enough. Only prob I have with them is (like stated before) the creasing, the toe box is a bit tight, and thegrey on the soles scrap of very easily.

Comfy, yet toebox wrinkles like a mofo. The leather is mad thin. JB Circa 2004 and up. CHeap cheap materials!
