    I enjoy Merrell shoes but they are the most inconsistent sized fucking company of all time. I have had 3-4 different hikers/trail shoes of theirs. Size 11.5, 12.5, 13 and 14. No joke. I am consistently a 13 in Nike products. My son wears 11s and the 11.5 Merrells won’t even stay on his feet.

    Agree. I am usually an 11.5 got 12's in those and they fit perfectly.

    That’s what read as well. Same quality in terms of the Black Cement 3 and the Bred Toe 1. Seems to be a good thing, even if people miss out on release the secondary prices on those specific shoes were reasonable after release $250ish.

    Same here, got that early reservation on Nike+ finally. I'd like to get another tomorrow to flip for some extra $$ since I ended up with the Game Royal's as well the other week. Quality on those is definitely average.

    More 80's Adidas retros aimed at aging soccer hooligans.

    Adidas CLMBA (formerly called Columbia back in the day. There's also a Harvard). Just returned them for an exchange as sizing is a bit off.

    Whatever these VaporMax Flynit things are called I like 'em. Dropped today I believe.

    I like the Mocs but $200 seems steep.


    Although I’m trying to buy the $720 ones here in two hours (hyperadapt 1.0, again)

    Funny thing, since I complained about the Nike Draw a couple months ago, I've won twice and had 2 friends also win. Maybe they're cleaning up the system? Or maybe just got lucky...

    Good for you. I’ve never lucked out on the draw. Was able to score another pair of Shadow at retail so I’m pumped.

    Balls... didn’t even see those. Do I go ahead and buy those too? I’m a 574 guy and this is my first dive into the world of boosts...

    I’d hold off to see if you like them first. Or order those and send back which ever pair you don’t like? Not sure if returns are accepted.

    Same here, mine came in yesterday as well.

    Quick question... should I put some insoles in these bod boys? It just seems weird to me that my foot is directly touching the foam part.
