8 months, 2 weeks ago on Nike LeBron 11 “Graffiti” – On-Foot Look
If Nike would just release PE shoes in limited quantity it would end the NCAA problems. Fact is Nike wants it this way. I would gladly enter a raffle for a CHANCE to even buy these for $350 with the premium suede and textured interior for ultimate comfort.

Leather on these look quality. If the quality of the release is on par with OG which the sample looks like it is I will pay $200-220 max. I still havent worn my White Cement '88s

@brooklynswag I guess if I had absolutely no other 11's at all MAYBE I would consider these. They just look like a version of the comfort viz series.

@iTweet_Jets @SeanMostAnticipated straight up. These would be heat with black patent leather. The white on last years 11 lows turns a cream color with time I can only imagine these after being worn for a month. #Disappointed
@Fire kicks Ugly AF! No way will I copp these. SLEEPING IN!
@muthatrucka has anyone else noticed that these look like a complete different colorway than the XX8 that was announced? Looks like either 3M or Galaxy colorway almost????? Or am I trippin???

@Chris101 sit the shoes next to each other and compair direct height, do they look even? The patant leather on the back does the positioning on the back match exactly one shoe to another? How does the 23 on back look? Very eligible or like lines making a 23? Does the carbon fiber on bottom sound n feel like plastic when you tap it? Compair to the weight of a similar shoe same size that you for sure. Look at stitching, on the edge is the distance between the edge of the patant leather and the very edge of the leather even all the way around? And last and but not least is the logo on the tongue between the 3rd space on the laces or all high and nasty lookin?

@herchanks I think the red ones would look good if it had a icey sole. Black and gold looks like a failed version of the Nike elite shoes.

@VladimirMatyukhin I'm done buying Nike or Jordan. Their whole ParaNorman contest pisses me off. Their able to invest in attracting new customers but could give a crap less about people who are spending and been spending. Instead it a contest to give foams to people who never bought a pair before seal Jordan boxes and autograph every on in 5k or something. I had a jacked childhood. No happy pictures or pictures of me at all for that matter. So I was excluded from the start. I spent 10k on shoes this year and it nike screws up the best they would ever do for me is give me a core to get express shipping free WHEN I SPEND MORE! Which isn't happening. I'm done. I retire. I got about 20k worth of shoes to start selling. I joke not I wouldn't buy the raging bull pack at less than retail if it were sitting in front of me. I'm done. Tired of spending so much money on shit and having to stay up all night and fight for QS releases to get something even 1/2 way worth collecting. I have half a mind to find out it the contest was even legal because it required someone to of cared enough to have taken pictures of me to join. Sorry Nike I didn't have that and for that Im not good enough to join. Anyone need size 13 shit than hit me up. I got over 100pr for sale. Who knows maybe I could buy a ParaNorman foamposite after selling my collection. Someone needs to study eBay closely. I bet 750 of 800 are resold. And for all this I'm done. No point in it. Nike stopped caring about their customers and I won't do business like that anymore.

@VladimirMatyukhin Silica gel bead packets, air tight container, and avoid display in sunlight. The linseed oil will provide a small level of protection but kind of like 10spf sun screen. It's nuts even the 11 lows came creamy looking. Silica gel bead packs prevent a lot of problems. Including like yellowing of paint and soles. My OG true blues with the Nike air is whiter than my 2011 true blue s that've been worn only 8-10hours. The footlocker sneaker protector does a good job helping keep icy soles easy to clean too. The yellowing can happen even from light bulb light. Air tight containers with silica gel to absorb any moisture and oxygen. I recommend re-usable silica gel packs on eBay. You can just put them in the oven to reactivate the silica gel. Some of the gel beads will get black when you need to reactivate your silica gel bead packets.
@VladimirMatyukhin The intricacy of the design makes the filberts off the chart! I already worn 1 of mine. I only got 1 of the obsidians tho which are also sick as hell.
@VladimirMatyukhin Or Walmart actually. Walmart had linseed oil I'm pretty sure. In pharmacy area oddly enough. Call around tho. And read my other post about clear coating. I think that is a solid part of the reason paint would transfer from 1 thing to another item of clothing rather easily.
@VladimirMatyukhin I got it at a hobby store. It's a common used oil to treat leathers. It should be near the acrylic paint usually because it's the product used to shine the acrylic paint. Also above your acrylic layer of paint don't be afraid to use a clear coat and use the oil last once all has dried. I have actually had sneakers where the toe box got stepped on and left a gouge in it. I ended up using a small bit of glue to even the surface, then slightly sanded it with fine grit sand and then painted, clear coated, and then linseed oil. I should have added the clear coat is Important to acrylic leather painting. They make the clear coat specifically for the acrylic paint. Just wait for everything to dry before doing anything. I have a lot of experience with customizing. I actually changed my 11 lows from this year to a red color. It's not quite as shiny as the original patent leather but they look killer. Wish I could show some pics but I sold them long ago. ALSO get a girlfriend to paint your Jordan 7 GMP lace tips from silver to gold. Really sets the shoe off. Again clear coat will assure the paint not transferring to anything but let the paint fully dry (extra time drying is advisable)
@ijustwantqualityjays Hey now I am sure they cost at least $8 to make. Give Nike a little credit. I mean we have to include the cost of the box and shoe laces as well.
@VladimirMatyukhin Oh and linseed oil is good for all leathers. It keeps it somewhat moist but not actually like wet. It makes it so creasing seems to show less because the leather is softer. I know my cool grey 11's are 100% non creased at the toe box because I treated it with the linseed oil a couple times before wearing. All the oil will do visually is make it shiny but as far as leather treatment it's just like a cowboy boot. If you don't treat it ever the leather quickly disintegrates.
@VladimirMatyukhin Make sure to let it dry for a few days minimum. Take a wet finger and try to smudge the paint off if still not dry give it time. Do not wear before it will not smudge the color to your finger and use linseed oil to add flexibility. That angelus u have may work if you use linseed oil to add add flexibility to the paint n leather.
I got the Olympic, Filbert, Obsidian, and GMP 7's in the past month and a half. I'll get 1 pair of raptors maybe 2 but if it's not quality I'll send it back straight up.
Vlad!!! Acrylic leather paint. Use a little acitone water mix to get off any excess
paint from your fix then use acrylic leather paint. Can get it at hobby stores some fabric stores. The paint will show the shape of the crease but shouldn't crack anymore. You can use Linseed oil to keep your leather shiny and soft :)
@VladimirMatyukhin Honestly I am not sure. Probably one pair. I am looking forward to the crimson foamposite more than the 7's tbh
@VladimirMatyukhin Fu*k the police! I mean uhh wassup VLAD! Dam I'm drunk
Also it's pointless to collect basic releases. Okay you can make $50 on a pair of shoes but the collectors end of Jordan should be higher priced quick strike and limited edition releases.... You know... Same as collecting anything else ever...
@KhalifaMane That would only hurt people who are collecting/ reselling. Regardless of differences the value of the previous retro goes down. Why would I pay for the Brooklyn Mars Fire Red 4's when I can get the regular fire red 4's for 1/2. And why but Nike air logo'd infrared 4's when I can buy Jumpman logo'd infrared 4s in a month? I wouldn't. So unless shoes are NEVER going to be retro'd EVER (eliminating retro Jordan's) than what is the point of what your saying? And please don't take what I'm saying as rude just my opinion.
@vfe Nike knows people were pissed about the Fire Red 4's quality. Had so many returns from online retailers it made their head spin off their neck like a top. I returned 2 of 3. I am 100% sure that they just get sold again when returned tho (why else would footlocker have the shoes available due to returns). I will never in my life buy online after the release a few days. Chances are they will be crap quality and be on their second or third owner.
Shouts out to the writer on this one. Keep this going and let's hope someone at Nike sees. I hope kicksonfire keeps tweeting this.
@chill_nox Sounds like a good idea but more than 500 pairs. Say maybe 2 in every size run on random sizes. And the people that don't get the ones with the Nike air get a retro card with the Nike air. Those who actually get the Nike air branded shoes get a retro card with the jumpman on it. I also think JB should do like a sweeps of some sort. Some lucky winner on each retro run gets picked to visit their beaverton facility and get a rare pair of shoes. Sure only 1 winner but this could be as simple as a scratch it ticket on the box. I doubt footlocker would let all the tickets get scratched before the sale because it's not likely they would prosper from it.
@CC221 Oh f**k yeah man the same thing happened on 2 of 3 of the fire red 4's I had. CRAP QUALITY! They should of cycled some suade 4's or nubuck 4's or something else because the same white leather got worse and worse from the cement 4s to military 4's then fire red 4's. It's like they were working with crap materials and they had to know. My fire red 4's came so creased I thought maybe MJ himself might of played in em.... But then I got my next pair the same quality and my MJ dreams were shot.
About to see the quality of the golden moments pack here in a little bit :) #HighHopes
@CC221 @Knee_Koe TRUE THAT! Every single pickup 1 of 3 pair at least will be crap C- quality with the exception of a few pairs (cav 4's, playoff 12's, the royal blue txt 10's, and for most part the cement 4's) those all seemed to come out real nice and I know they made less of all of them. They are choosing mass production over quality. White leather toe box and sides they got worse and worse because they couldn't produce enough QUALITY leather. Which is why they should of switched the Colorways up and the materials along with it rather than releasing a ton or shoes with the same basics one after another after another.
Thats interesting considering they just recently announced the Jordan 1 royal blue colorway coming out with Nike air on it. They did "branch off" but no change of ownership took place so they can still do whatever they want with their branding.
@jstforkicks22 I would like to see the 4's come like the true blue 3's. Still having the Jumpman and Air below the jumpman on the back. I like rocking Nikes. People are starting to forget that Nike owns JB and it's same thing but just a hint of Nike on original Colorways would be nice.
And Sneakernews how do you post your watermark in the middle of the pic when Carmelo Anthony originally posted those pics on his instagram w twitter?
1 year, 11 months ago on Air Jordan IV “Red Suede”
It's funny tho. Even Carmelo Anthony gets shoes with excess glue on the toe box. (bottom pic)
Yeah I would be willing to pay more for this as a "Toro Bravo" pack than I would the spizikes coming up. Those 4's could make up for the crap quality of the past couple 4's... Military blue 4's and Fire Red 4's the leather was lacking quality but I think its more than likely because it's hard to get good leather for all 3 releases and the white cement 4's were put up front and the quality of the leather went down from there. SOLUTION: the infrared 4's are a different material of course but release something for us to look forward to please!! With these they could be made of suade and nubuck and would be much easier to produce quality shoes when switching up the materials. Instead of the same white leather toe box that has gone down and down and down in quality likely because of availability of excellent leather. I am looking forward to the 13's next year. Tumbled leather is hard to screw up :)
@seanx52793 Very good point there. Icey soles is 100% a scam and started the 1 to rock 1 to stock trend. Good cash cow for Nike so don't ever expect good quality again. Sad really.
@Kobe Bryant No joke! They used to have quality assurance and ONE bad pair they would pull 100 pairs after and the 100 before and they would be distributed to b-grade outlets. Now 10,000 pairs and quality assurance check 1 in 10k pairs... Great job LOL@Nike/JB

I dont mind the blue stitching but that leather looks like crap on those. Simply seeing the pair with nubuck makes me hate these with passion. If they make clearance I'll cop.
