I think it's weird that we have lots of indications about the pine greens, but not a lot of info on the court purples.
Ah another week closer to Pines and Purples. Think I am skipping these 700s too, Already have a pair and I barely wear them as is.
If resale goes up on the Racer Pinks between now and the 20th I'm gonna be real mad at myself
Is the sizing for the nike react element tts and what is the sizing compare to nmd r1.
I wear TTS for both, but there is a little room in the toes for the reacts. For the R1 it fits well new, but after it breaks in it gets slightly roomy.
I have a hard set rule to never size down because I have in the past and don’t like toes rubbing.
> nike react element tts
yes. if your r1 is primeknit, you'd have sized down 0.5 - 1 from tts.
Grand tabs for the help
The thing about having big legs are ruining my pairs of jeans. Started wearing a semi-new pair of raws, and already got a crotch blow out starting.
GG thunder thighs.
I do what I want
Anyone here have a pair of Margiela GATS that can help me with sizing? I wear a 43 in the Common Projects Achilles and a 10.5 US in Nike and Adidas. What size would I be in Margielas?
Most people say TTS but you can get away with slightly bigger if you need to cos it's quite narrow.
I wear 41 in CPs, US9 to US9.5 in Adidas/Nike and tried both UK8 and UK9 in Margiela. The UK8 (my TTS) definitely fit a bit better but I went for the UK9 cos it was the smallest size in the colourway I wanted, bit of room in the toe but no heel slip or anything due to the narrowness
Is the hype dead on the puma thunder spectra or did sns just get a ton of stock? Still a full size run available
They restocked them like 10 times
just wrong timing. it's crep-tember
no shit. $120 goes a hella long way this month.
We as a community should get drop bots, then randomly select subscribers to win the drop
That would be sick.
Any thoughts on this mods??
Are the court purples and pine greens going to be easier to cop than the acronyms?
I think so, if it’s coming to footsites.
Dang, that’s pretty messed up. I’m just going to keep annoying them. Also thanks for the thoughts and comments
got my first NMD HUs...how do you lace these things? its really tight in the mid foot region
Its the cage and the block that do it. The more you wear them the more they stretch out in that area.
That’s how mine were too. I loosened the laces to the point where I could barely tie my DS knot. It helped a lot. After a while to the cage will adjust
Mine just came in thursday. Love em but they fit so weird. They feel baggy in the front and tight in the middle.
So I won a contest from an Instagram page named “WaveTV” they used to be super athletes. They told me I won Off White Prestos and I was stoked, they didn’t ask for credit card info or anything just shipping address. Got the stockx email confirmation then got an email 2 weeks later that the order was cancelled by the seller, not the buyer. So I contacted the IG page I won them from and they’re being super shady and not replying which is kind of messed up, has anyone else had this problem with them?
well, if you didn't give up any personal data (except your name / addy) or money... just accept the L?
That would be a hell of a scam. Contest. Buy for winner. But they are the sellers and cancel. So they can hide behind the fact that seller cancelled and they say you are out of luck
what...? like they bought them off StockX for you? if it was the seller than cancelled then how is it their fault?
Yeah they bought them off stockx for me but the seller cancelled so that aspect isn’t their fault. But they are getting refunded and you’d think they would just order it again but I messaged them about it and they are reading my messages and not replying about it.
As another user suggested, it may be some sort of fraud on the part of the IG page. Anyone can sell on StockX, so there’s a chance the owner of the IG page posted a listing on the site, bought their own product through a separate StockX account, and subsequently canceled the order. They might think there’s not much you can do to debunk their credibility, so they did as they did.
Has anyone ever won a raffle from bait sf? I swear they backdoor all their shit
I've won two raffles from Bait. The Oreo yeezys and the og Calabasas. But I've taken far more Ls.
Haven't gotten a W since they switched their raffle "system" to Google forms though.
Won the OW prestos and my hairdresser got a pair of the other color way.
hmm i see where the rumoured backdoor pairs go to
Actually, I was wrong - she got her pair from Darkside - so I guess just that W - still feel like them and UNDFTD are the only ones in the city who are totally legit with their raffles
ive only won from melrose
My first ever raffle win were OG OW Prestos from Bait LA
I’m about 0/100 at bait. I do think I’ve seen people win before. But no idea if it’s legit.
Don’t know about sf but I’ve never heard of someone winning a bait raffle in Portland.
Bait is sketch
Is there any new release info for the OW "Grim Reapers"?
I’ve been hearing rumors that they’re gonna be a surprise drop on SNKRS on the 15th, haven’t heard much else.
All sources saying 15th but everyone knows that it’s going to be a shock drop somewhere around that day, probably not on the 15th
Awh fuck, there's goes my whole Saturday waiting for a possible drop
October 15 SNKRS LEO
Is the Air Max Skepta releasing in US?
They were at Bodega LA today
They surprise dropped on SNKRS a couple of nights ago around Midnight EST
No they didn't. That was SNKRS pass only. No word on a public release.
True. I misremembered my bad
There’s an image in Behind the Design that has 20180911 on the tag so some think it’ll be Sept 11
Anyone got info on solarglide hu release?
I went to Concepts for the pre release, said there should be a bigger drop around the 26th
No word yet on the actual release. A few select stores had pre-release yesterday (9/8)
It happened yesterday.
I know they dropped yesterday, I meant word about a possible re-release
You’re looking for restock dates the day after the original drop?
I thought people were sayin it was just a small pre-release and was mostly in-store
This is the correct answer
is resell higher in Australia since it doesn't get much hype releases?
they've access to StockX as well, i'm sure their market has been "bad" since that happened
Lowkey Nike has me stressing over these shock drops. Woke up scared this morning because I slept in until about 9
Nike forcing me to be an early riser. Wtf, Nike.
8 am drops for me, I woke up at 8:04 and started checking everything lol
I really think for the Blazers, they'll wait until some heat has died down on how bad Serena was
Serena made it to the finals. How bad Serena was?
People aren't talking about her loss, but unsportsmanlike and petulant she was about it. She did everything awful she could in the sport, basically, and it was a really bad look. Enough to get a pretty decent fine.
Man, why would an athlete get angry after being screwed over by a judge with a grudge? A judge who assessed a penalty that radically changed the flow of the finals round, for a thing that she had no direct control over. A judge that had an issue with her sister in the French Open at that.
I'm not saying she would have won, as Osaka was doing pretty well at that point, but the fact that she's being criticized for her reaction is ludicrous. I'd be mad too. And considering that male tennis players have been chewing out judges/refs without similar penalties for years... I mean, John McEnroe was sorta known for it.
Okay, well here's the thing, and I know there are lots of Serena stans out there, and generally, I support her and she's obviously GOAT, but:
She deserved the penalty she got. Her coach admitted it. Her reaction afterwards, trying to hype the home crowd, breaking her racket (which..can you remember the last time you saw a destroyed racket in such an important match?) And her choice of words..including bringing up her fucking kid, was distasteful, and she KNEW what was coming.
She mentioned the points, so she knew where she was at with regards to penalties, and chose to not reign it in.
If this were baseball or someone, she would have just been tossed out. Instead, she created a side show that took away from Osaka who was clearly winning. And this isn't Serena's first time acting like this, especially when she's getting upset in a match.
Osaka won the first set 6-2. People are arguing that Serena was robbed 🙄
Yeah and it wasn't even that close. She was getting outplayed the whole time. She had some bad missed shots...etc. Osaka pretty much did everything right, and he we are arguing how much of a sore loser Serena was being.
Tbh I’m more interested in the spooky blazers
You and I both. I have a pair of blazers that are SUPER uncomfortable, but I'm hoping it's just that pair
What time zone are you in?
Ima say this now. There probably won’t be a shock on a Sunday.
Everyone at Nike watching football.
u/kn0thing swing the Serena blazers pls
Anyone get these? https://www.instagram.com/p/Bngps48AeQ2/
I wish. The detail in the material is insane.
Idk if they are official. I just saw these on my Google feed they dropped today
just checked that website. looks like its all sold out. i'm guessing customs, but they were pretty fire
I could totally see the undercover 87s shock dropping on snkrs soon
What is soon, tho? Like next Saturday or tomorrow??
They release Thursday
if homeboy coming through in these, it’s quiet
*buying pine greens?*
This actually made me LOL
When you were budget ready to pay secondary for the OW blazer mids but wake up to a dead car. 😤
life > shoes
*These boots are made for walkin*
How to get a pair of the SW Blazers:
- be the kid of the Reddit founder.
burgundy ub mids sizes 8-11
greens been up for a few days, only size 8 left
~$250 shipped from HK
Are the court purples an NRG? I assumed the purples and the pine greens would split up across the footstores like the best hand pack, but all I see on the release calendars for FA, FL, and Champs is the pine green.
I don't think they are NRG, Looks like they are releasing at smaller stores like City Gear, Ruvilla etc. But remember that the Best hand pack in Green released like a week later at Footstores in a lot of places. Could be the case here, break up the allotment for app/ease of sale purposes.
Does not say NRG on the box, but also remember the BRED toes were not an NRG. So take that for what you will.
I am assuming similar numbers to Bred Toes, especially with all of the early pairs on the market. As a Jordan 1 and a Ravens fan, I’ll be copping no matter what
Any cool sneaker stores/malls near dtown Toronto?
Livestock Spadina, Haven, Capsule. Eaton Centre has a Champs, Nike, Foot Locker, Footaction, and more. Queen Street West has a lot of shoe stores, and an Adidas Originals.

What happened to the Nike x Undercover React Elements originally leaked CWs, especially B/W and sail?
Also, I'm looking to cop AJ1 Retro High OGs in sail/red for 150$ but feel stupid paying 50 bucks over retail :/ Thoughts?
They're dropping 3 more undercover react colorways at the end of the year (b/w included)
sail already came out it was the OG without the undercover tag
AJ1 Retro High OG retails for $160 so $150 is $10 under retail.
You serious? Because that black/ White Colorway is the best one hands down.
You might have been had bro
Samples or customs by the undercover team probably.
Also Highs retail for 160 so 150 is still under. I love my pair so I say it’s worth it. Then again I only paid 72 for them at shiekhs
Is yellowing on Off-White AJ1 pretty much inevitable?
Yeah. For any Off-White collab actually. Foam and mesh tends to yellow over time and when they're exposed like how they are in the deconstructed look, the oxidization process is sped up.
Damn. Is there no way to reverse the oxidation on shoes?
Its our reversing rust, it's the same process, essentially.
But it's also kinda the point of the shoe
iron always wants to go back to its natural state!
I understand it's the point of the shoe to be worn and naturally oxidize over time. I was just curious if there are any preventative measures and practical ways to reverse this redox in the context of shoes. That's all.
Yeah nah I feel you. Time will eventually consume us, and our sneakers, into the Oblivion.
Let these sneakers be a constant reminder of the inevitable.
yeah fuck that I'll die when I die but in the meantime I want my shit to last lol.
YOU CAN'T FIGHT TIME, FRIEND
No, but I can prolong certain things :)
no, but you can prevent it/slow it down by applying multiple layers of jason marks repel.

it works great for my volt acrnm prestos as well as for my white ow prestos 🤷🏻♂️
No worries if you missed. Red Gradients will be back on Adidas on 10/4...
those red gradient 2.0s are pretty bad
I’m really not a fan of the 2.0 pattern. For me it’s 1.0 > 4.0 > 3.0 >>> 2.0.
2.0s look like kids shoes.
Most of 2.0 cws were pretty trash. Suppose anything is better than current 3s and 4s lol.
Passed on these first time don’t think second time is any different. Especially this month.
yeah for sure. we usually only remember the good colorways when we think of UB 1.0/2.0, but there was plenty of trash back then too. I remember how much everyone hated the gradient pattern at first, even the whites and core blacks were getting hated on when they first dropped.
I'm glad I copped MC 2.0 and I'm glad that I'll get a chance at the black 3M 2.0 and creams, but I wouldn't mind if the rest got left in the past lol.
Red gradient 2.0 restocked on Champs. Scooped a pair myself
Sold out now on Champs. Adidas schedule to re-release October 4th.
They pushing off the serena drop cause she acted like a fucking retard in her match?
They probably won’t.
Why arent the Skeptas more hyped? I think they are fire
I think they hype got buried in the anticipation of the blazers
Personally, Skepta is the one grime guy I can't stand. But that doesn't mean much in the US since grime in general is slept on here.
What's wrong with Skepta?
Nothing WRONG with him, just not what I'm into. Personally, for me, he's way more pop than grime, and doesn't embody anything I like about grime: the bitterness, the anger, the edge. I got into grime through people like Ghetts and Devilman, and he just ain't it.
imo Skepta and JME have their fair share of tracks with grimy beats and lyricism. I get you though
If JME didn't use the same bars in so many songs if probably give him more of a chance 🤣
lol fair enough
I think they're fire but Idk.
I personally am a huge Skepta fan but I find these boring and the silhouette feels cheap and plasticky to me
Surprisingly nothing is scheduled to drop on snkrs today.
Does anything ever drop on Sunday there?
Nothing hype but I never paid attention. I feel like something drops everyday though.
Think you’re onto something 🤔
Where can I cop the mismatched zoom flys can’t find them anywhere?
Man I really wish they would drop the Adidas DBZ shoes during one of the weekly new Super episodes
There is new DBS? like after the multi-universe tournament?
nah, the English dub is still airing Super (that's what I watch) every Saturday. We just started the Zeno exhibition match last night (yeah it's pretty far behind and I know about the multi-universe tournament but not how it all plays out so no spoilers pls)
But if they were going to release the shoes during an episode of Super, it'd probably be during the English dub since its supposedly more geared towards American audiences
Oh I gotcha. Sorry if I ruined the multi universe tournament for you! There are plenty of other fun surprises.
nope you're good! It's hard to watch only the dub and not be spoiled (either by other people or by my own impatience/curiosity)
You're in for a treat, that show really turns it up a notch from that point until the end of its run imo. I'd bank on the shoes coming out with the DBS movie in December.
The show is peak perfect during the baseball episode, though!
The first wave of shoes are already confirmed by Adidas to release in September actually
And I don't really get the DBS movie. Like it supposedly takes place after Super ends but the English dub (at its current pace) will end November 2019. So are they just saying American audiences have to watch the sub before watching the movie? It just seems strange to me
If they just started the exhibition match there is no way in hell it will finish till november if you get 1 Episode a week. Not that it is something bad
Yeah it'll finish in November 2019.
We're currently on episode 78, which means theres 53 episodes/weeks left. With some Saturdays off because of holidays, they'll finish then
Oh sorry, I overread the 2019, my bad man
no worries! It's all good
Oh, I was thinking they were August and delayed. But there is apparently one DBS pair of the DBZ shoes, right? I guess it would make sense if that one came out in December/January (I think that's when the N. American dub comes out.)
I'm guessing it's releasing before the dub is over so they can start producing more episodes in Japan after the movie's run.
Am I the only one who thought the Solarglide Hu's weren't dropping this weekend? They dropped yesterday? FUCK
isa initial drop there would be more
thanks. i was worried there. I was searching yesterday morning for a drop but couldn't find any info. I'll need to catch them on the next drop.
so one question, when it says on "where to buy : Nikestore US", it means only the US online store? what about other regions?
AMM for sure. AKOGs are unique but I think they’re kind of hideous, especially with that vomit colored outsole and tacky carpet pattern.
AKOG just because the all white AMM will be hard to keep clean over autumn and winter coming up. Also quality of AKOG and cushioning is fantastic!
If you’re in LA, Nice Kicks has the AKOG
I like a ma maniere. materials are ultra premium. Cashmere baby
AKOG. Very unique design.
Why are the black 500s going for so much on stockx now? I'm so glad I doubled up when they sat on yeezysupply lmao
Never bet against Yeezy
A lot of regular people actually wanted them to wear. Walking around irl its probably the sneaker I have seen the nost recently
Idk but I want a pair of the blacks so bad
They sat on ys and adc for a pretty long time haha
Sat way longer than the other 500s. An yeezys take that long?
