    I have a pair of Ultraboost 19’s that are starting to wear through the sole and need replacing. Does anyone know if these have a similar fit? I know there’s been some discussion of certain Ultraboost running larger/smaller.

    All right so we’re back at the beach. We drive up to LA today because lil man wanted to go to CoolKicks. Turned out when we showed up there was a massive line and they weren’t letting people in the store because they were doing some filming. They had a drone going down the street at shoe level and then up and into the store. They did like 8 runs of it and on the last one they told the employee that they placed in line to get some more cool kicks in the shots to stand out on the sidewalk and spread his legs so they could drive the drone through it. They go to fly the drone through and it hits off his inner thigh and goes slamming into lil mans thigh and rips it clear open.

    long story short we had to go to urgent care get staples put in to close up his leg amd we were back to shopping. The employees were awesome when we got back and he felt like a celebrity the way they treated him. They took “really good care” of him for everything that happened but needless to say it was a memorable trip for him

    Yeah. We were planing on going in March of 2020 and then Covid struck so he’s been kind of pissed about that, then we’re in line and he gets obliterated by a drone. He had a little melty but it all worked out in the long run and I’m glad he’s ok. Apparently that owner guy only takes pics with celebrities per my son and they took one yesterday and said they’d use it for the YouTube thumbnail (doubtful) but I also don’t think they film with a drone again today so if they use footage from yesterday and the show gets green lighted he’s pretty pumped his shoes will be in the opening for every show.

    Lol actually he got no blood on them. It was a slow start to bleed and then we had paper towel in the store by the time it got flowing.

    after it happened and we were walking into the store the production company was like don’t worry we got a medic here. Like four minutes later the drone operator showed up with one of those little red first aid kits from a car. Gauzed it and cinched it with tape and was like let’s give it five min and see if it bleeds through.

    Good lord. Did they give him a limit on what he could grab on the house? I'd have grabbed some TS dunks, o/w AJ1 etc.

    They didn’t really tell him what he could or couldn’t do. We talked with him about not being a dick about it. He wanted the British khakis and the slides and what we were going to get when we went anyways. They actually probably got off super lite but it was a total freak accident. They said when it happened they’d comp me and my wife shoes too but we didn’t get anything.

    Thanks. The worker that was with us was super nice to Mack the whole time and felt like ass after it happened. You could see his eyes welling up a bit. Nothing he could have done differently. If they’d been assholes about it I’d have probably felt different but truly they were really great people. I know the employees were probably told to be over the top nice to him and us, but they were all really nice asking to take pics with him and making him feel like he was a celebrity. They cleared the line at the door, the model girl (I was told) was at the register and was telling him how tough and brave he was and how she almost passed out. I think that was more than enough for him but even the guys in the back and the employee that was with us in line were really nice. For a shitty accident he got to feel like a king for the day. Even when we went down a couple blocks to the cool to look at clothes the employees all recognized him and were talking to him. He’s totally girl crazy at 14 now so all the pretty ones spending time and talking with him was a huge part of him feeling better.

    You damn right. I woulda been like bring out everything in a 8.5 and 9 and ill just tell you which ones i dont want.
    In my mind atleast.

    Truth be told im the type of person that gets all weird about situations like that and would have been walking out with some single average pair still worried they were thinking im taking advantage.

    Probably one of those scams where they want your address so they can send you a bunch of bullshit and they leave themselves Amazon reviews and it looks legit because it was actually sent to a real address. It’s kinda harmless but weird when shit starts showing up though.

    My dumbass would probably do it anyway.
