    They just started putting it down this morning. Couldn't do real wood with a 3 yr old and dogs so we did LVP. Guess we'll see how it turns out.

    Honestly the Wolf/Sub sounded WAY better in like March when it was like "Ahh fuck it, go for it." Then the bill came in August and I was like "Fucking idiot." to myself. Paid cash outside of closing too so that stung a bit. Kinda regret them and they aren't even in yet.

    Looks good. We went real but dark and wide like that. They’ll look good with the light colored kitchen for sure.

    We almost went one shade darker but I'm glad we didn't. These are darker than I expected once down so it worked out. And yea the only way I'd do the LVP was with the wide plank.

    They look like if they remade a Back to the Future movie today and went back to the 70's those would be what the characters had on their feet.

    I'm pages late to the argument but I use Affirm/Afterpay for shit all the time. I buy stuff I can afford up front but don't feel like taking a big upfront hit on. Why not use somebody else's money interest free to drop 60 bucks every 2 weeks instead of 240 all at once. They debit my account and I move on.

    this is exactly how I feel about afterpay. Buying the mochas at 300 isn’t that bad when I pay it off over 10 weeks interest free. I am cheap as fuck so this helps my cheapness.

    Sold out before I knew they dropped. They've restocked a few times, missed each one. Oh well.

    Same. I never knew when they were officially dropping and every one of the notifications I got about them were after they had already dropped and were long gone save for some really small or really big sizes.

    This is the new Mars Yard 2.5. The black toe cap doesn't work for me. Really don't want to spend the money but probably going to break down and buy 2.0 now that we know 2.5 is nothing close to 2.0.

    Just as an FYI, if you guys are going after something you really want (and know is coming out soon), or is super limited and you can catch it on zadehkicks when he's got a good coupon code I'd hop on it. It takes 4-6 weeks after release to get the shoes, but it's a guarantee. For example here is what I ordered a couple weeks ago:

    How has your experience been with him? I've heard so many conflicting things about him. Some say super legit, some say fake as fuck. It always seemed weird to me that he posts some stuff that never gets made. Like he had Travis Scott AJ1 Chicago on his site at one point like 18 months ago.

    And selling both the AJ4 and AJ1 for under retail when both will fly at retail and then have resell value just makes no sense. What am I missing?

    This is my first time buying from there, according to everyone in the discord he's 100% legit. The catch is this, he posts everything that is speculated to drop, and holds your money until they do drop. So if you're buying something thats not dropping for a long time, if ever, then he's got access to your money long term. You can eventually get a refund but it takes a while I've been told. This is why I say buy stuff with confirmed release. The 1's were listed for $360 and weren't eligible for his discount code (he has different levels of discounts available) the 2nd pair in my order is a pair of 13s that are supposed to come out in the fall.

    Yea I've read up on it and just walked away confused. So much money being tied up and then he's selling hyped shoes at retail or lower and it just made me suspect. Add in that I have no idea how to legit check a shoe, especially one that I probably wouldn't have a known legit pair to side by side them, and I couldn't do it. Really interested to see how it goes for you. You should buy some and send them through StockX/Goat to see if they pass lol
