The materials are of very good quality, and the shoes are put together extremely well. The trefoil on the midsole is a little different on them, compared to these pictures, but it isn't bad. They're $85 for adult sizes btw, but tax in VA made in $90 with free shipping.

Ordered mine the first day they came out, just got them 4 days later with the free shipping. They aren't releasing in August, they've been out guys.

The shoes have been out sense yesterday. Search for -c- on adidas' s website. Searching for c-10 specifically comes up with nothing for some reason

This website is officially more "hype beast" than even hypebeast.com. I thought it would have ended after some time, but it isn't. Anyone who else has noticed this, sneakerreport is leauges better.

Ps. You all should rename the website/url hypedshoes.com to let people using google know what you all are good at :)

I haven't seen heel tabs on any pairs of kobe 9s. The elite high top obviously doesn't the htm pairs were like these, but the strip on the back said htm, and the engineered mesh pairs don't have them either.

Colorways aren't very good looking, and compared to nike's flyknit lunar series, or the coming flyknit lunarglide 6, these probably won't sell very well for $200.

These things look horrible, and cost way too much. 28 se looks much better and plays very nicely, for $150 it's a much better deal. There's also some discounted colorways right now from NDC.

I was about to buy a pair, and have them sent to the U.S. But their website simply refreshes the webpage after I click add to basket (on my phone) and I have no access to a computer.

Nike has already gone to court with Adidas for primeknit, and Adidas won the rights to sell primeknit shoes. It refers to this in the post.... It also isn't the same as Nike's flyknit, because if you look at the back, there's a heel cage that isn't knit from the same fibers, such as how Nike does with it's shoes.

The design of the shoe looks pretty good compared to most reeboks. The colorways make it look pretty bad though.

People still buy some af1. They aren't selling like they used to because when they came out the af1 were some of the best shoes they put out, now compared to more modern shoes they obviously can't compete. That's what's slowly happening to the foamposites, sense posite material is being better used on other shoe models, and flyknit is making it's way into more nike shoes.

The top layer on foamposite isn't foam. It's a shell with what looks like a variation of foam undernath it. If you or a friend has lebron 11s, look up underneath one of the posite vents, and you can see the foam. We don't call normal foamposites something like plasticposite, or anything like that (not sure exactly what the material of the shell is made of, but they're still call foamposites for the foam underneath). So why call these suedeposite? There's almost certainly going to still be foam underneath.

The strap looks like cheap plastic, the upper doesn't look as good, and the back of the outsole looks odd. Maybe for performance they'll be better (upper seems more breathable, bendable, etc). The price definitely shouldn't be raised though, seeing as how cheap these seem compared to the build of the soldier 7.

The toe box is darker, the swoosh should be black, and yes there should be a pull tab. The only thing I'm confused on, is that the elite low htms didn't have a pull tab, they had HTM stiched into that spot. The normal elite lows all have that 3 striped pull tab. As far as that toe box is concerned, maybe they could be like the flyknit chukkas, as to how the flyknit on varying shoes is altered slightly (creating an individual sort of color mix, like the chukkas usually do). But that wouldn't explain the changed swoosh color. These here, are just confusing.

$170, for an outdated shoe, in a pretty average looking colorway. $30 more for lebron 11s or kobe 9 elite lows. The xx8 is and leagues better than this, and $20 cheaper. This makes so much sense?...

This is the first line-up of colorways to come.. obviously they don't broadcast every single color they're going to put out when the shoes are just first releasing. There'll probably be a metereology colorway later.

Brendan Dunne, you should do a post about the new colorways for the flyknit 3.0s and 4.0s. Both mens and womens have gotten new ones, I know of 3 new colorwats based on black, blue, and grey for the flyknit 3.0. (For mens sizes)

For the materials used, Nike is just setting their own prices. Every time they post anything on flyknit, they make sure to say it has less steps and materials used in it's production compared to creating an upper on a usual shoe. That and lunarlon is just a variation of foam (which does feel nice for your foot). The cost of making the shoe can't feasibly be over $100.

I think that these would look extremely good, in a colorway which isn't as wild. Blue/black/white/grey, something a little more normal.

More than half of the time, MJ would be wearing black, or his red thriller jacket. If this is all about him, why is it purple? Prince was known for wearing purple, not MJ.

I like the heel and tounge area, but the mesh doesn't really go with it. The outsole looks cool too, but I don't like white outsoles.

Every single time nike has put these hyper-grape shoes on nikeinc, or the release calendar, -it does not say Michael Jackson-. Stop the hype beasting ffs. They always say artists*, songs*, and dance moves*. Last time I checked, Michael Jackson wasn't multiple people, or the only artist to moonwalk (or even the first).

Even when nike themselves release a legitimate "concord" or any other colorway relating to that, they usually still label them by color "black/white-game-royal"

And the main reason I keep mentioning it on these posts, or have gone to these lengths to bring it up on these comments, is that there are many other websites that don't do this for upcoming shoe releases.

I have used this site for some time, and it is more user friendly in my opinion when compared to some others. But all of the recent "hype-beasting" is about to turn myself and others away from this website.

I understand what you're trying to say, but in this post, and most every other post you've made on this website in recent times, you directly say things like "only 2,014 units will be available so if you value your sock game, these are a must have!". That is directly "brainwashing" -subliminally putting a desirable image on an item, due to it's exclusivity- that you have done with every article you have made. The idea, that people are referring to as "hype-beasts". You could have easily avoided wording the phrase that way, by saying such things as "if you're looking out for these, be careful! There's only 2,014 pairs to be sold".

Before trying to say anything else to avoid responding to that, I know for a fact what you are doing. I've taken over four years of marketing classes and some social economic classes, and we are taught almost exactly how to word things in such a manner, to "subliminally suggest" such things.

That may be true, but it shouldn't be your reasoning as to why people should want the socks. If they "value their socks" the feel and looks of the socks should be what matters to them. Availibility shouldn't be a factor in their desire for it. It should be more related as to how those people will find a way to get them.

Lol sneakernews "there will be only 2,014 pair made, so these are a must have!" With that logic, If nike makes 10 pairs of socks made out of scratchy wool, that causes blisters and looks like crap, should they be worth thousands of dollars?

John Kim is probably the most hype-beasting author on this website ffs. Every single post he makes -_-
