A oh wow, haven’t seen those in a while. Good colorway too. My favorite factory smelling shoe was the OG black toe XIV I think it was the suede they used and even made the shoe box smell, haha.Yes, I feel the same for most of J's I used to have, except these beauties, XX9 are very comfortable but done with fragile materials though
It's crazy but XX9 came with a particular odor I do like, I don't know if it has anything linked with the glue or something else
Facts bro, that knee pain wouldn’t take long with this model. I’m pretty sure the originals weren’t that stiff. I have them up there beside the 1’s in uncomfortable.a great looking shoe that is a pain to wear. I was so close to purchasing the Anthracites, Patent Blacks, the Bulls C/W and the Kobes. never got over the thought that they would cause me some knee pain for long use. also they are tanks and could really last awhile even for outdoors. took me about more than 2 years for my pair to show some bits of wear and tear.
