    Bunch of returns I’m guessing? Didn’t try for any of them.

    I might fuck around and keep the core red. They are the first 350 that I dont have a fit issue with.

    That and if I sold right now i'd lose $1 overall. So bye bye to my +$20.

    can't think of another place to ask. Thoughts on orthotics? I've got wide as shit feet and am in the process of buying some new ultra boosts for my day to day life. Would orthotics make them more comfortable? Reccomendations?

    you have to get approved to become a seller account for GOAT, i've never tried that process

    stockx you just click [Sell for $xx] and then it sends you a label to print and a slip to put inside the box

    Yes.
    I have wide & flat feet and custom orthotics that either replace the insole outright (common) or sit atop the insole (when I've bought something roomy, much less common)
    Mine were done through a podiatrist, so I can't speak to the current crop of options that are off the shelf/mail-in etc.

    Long story short, it depends. Some swear by them, others spend 400 bucks on custom ones and they hate them. Feet are complicated. Be careful changing too many forces on them. Lots of reasons for the love/hate, but I’d say most importantly is make sure your shoes are wide and big enough. If they aren’t, that will cause more problems than whatever an orthotic can/can’t do.

    I had the all whites and wore them into the ground. I might try to get a pair on the upcoming SNKRS drop for nostalgia reasons.

    But what I really want for some nostalgia are the OG Penny’s: The Air Go LWP. They were my favorite shoes from my childhood.

    We created a 4 yr old beast and it's all my fault :laugh:. Wife had a dress and sandles picked out but she wanted these to surprise me. This is the "sister pair" and the Heavy is the "brother pair."

    TS Wheats went from $1500 to $600 and back to $1500 all in 2 months. They were cheap for like 2 weeks and then bam. Glad I bought an extra pair on the dip.

    If they would just drop $25-30 more id kop. With all the fees and stuff theyre right at $300. And they just arent a $300 shoe for me.

    The TS fit a little different than most am1 fwiw. They have a wider toe box and they have more padding around the heel. The heel of more structured too, hard to explain.

    No. Adults. I get targeted ads for them apparently so made me wonder about them. The ones I have just come untied constantly.

    If they are coming untied, you may be lacing them incorrectly. I was until a few years ago. Your knot should lay flat horizontaly, which it will be if you go under when tying, but if you go over, the knot will lay at and angle.

    Meant to text you the other day. You should get her these. They are the best af1's in probably 2 decades. The leather is significantly better and doesn't crease as bad as the cheaper version. They'll probably go on sale at some point so you can maybe wait.

    If you’re having trouble with shoes untying take the rabbit and the string through the hole a second time. Creates a knot that you still can untie easily by pulling a string but doesn’t come untied. In addition it makes it lay flat like Dbl said and not crooked.

    Also if you have little kids it saves you untold minutes relying shoes throughout the day.

    Yeah, I think the video shows cutting the plastic tips off and then attaching the clips to the ends.

    Brings me to another question: can you buy replacement Nike laces of basically every color?

    Connection to what? Those are gone, man. There may be a pair in an outlet or something like that but that's it. They aren't sitting in any stores and resellers aren't sitting on pairs.
