    Is there any cushioning in the forefoot on the R4?

    Never had the OG pair but I could see myself buying these once they are discounted.

    @langfor5 The informational sticker on the OG pairs and some of the mid-00 retros claim that there was a standard Air unit at the forefoot but that was a decade ago and Nike's been gutting shoes hard.

    Wouldn't be surprised if they dropped the Air unit and running a full Phylon set up now.

    @vood99 thank you for posting that. I forgot, and miss that Nike use to put specs about the shoe on the inside of the boxes.

    Using the visual presented that looks like a fairly large Air-sole unit and like you accurately pointed out it should shock none of us if that Air-sole is emitted from this upcoming release.

    Think it was shox ride in 06 that had AM unit in front. Wouldn’t mind a retro.

    Pair will be in from VOO on friday, really weird how nike released them, only 4 stores in the world so far. Only caught on after reading the post below the KD article about his supersonics pairs. Glad to have them in my size, had them when they first released but in a size too big

    Surprised there’s no hype. These are fire imo.

    Just that nobody knows about them, had a little publicity last month but that's it. Wonder if they will eventually do a broader release but everything that I've seen says that's not going to happen

    Randomly stumbled across them, and ordered my pair. Only see them at KITH, and DSM. Will post pictures when they arrive. Here’s the link for DSM.

    Always wished the R4 upper had been used on a regular Air Max shoe and that Shox never even happened.

    Pair from DSM came in yesterday. No complaints on quality, or execution. Lots of 3M hits throughout, and moderately comfortable. Cannot distunguish if there is anything in the forefoot for cushioning, but the insole is pretty padded, and adds to the comfort. Sizing seems a little narrow. Normally wear between a size 14/15, and grabbed these in a 15. Fit is really good, and a 14 would have been way too tight. Size examples for reference:
    Air Max 1 & 97 - sz 15
    Jordan 1 & 3 - sz 15
    Vans - sz 14
    Jordan 5 & 12 - sz 14

    Thought the same thing too my G but then realized he's wearing size 15. Nike doesn't scale the Shox to match the overall shoe size so that's why they look tiny. :lol:
