and the dude with his dog, he has a Jordan 1 fusion and a spizike. lol

And did u guys see Colin Kapernicks "collection" dude had the 60+ and son of mars. lmao

One video review I saw advised to go true to size this time, so I'm still kinda confused about what I'm going to do. They changed the midsole paintjob of these Fire Red's to help protect them from cracking, so I'm wondering if production helped sizing as well.

Naw, didn't check out Kaepernick's collection yet.

Guess I'll shoot for two pairs ( true to size & 0.5 down) and return whichever is a worse fit.

I have no idea, but the best basketball shoes I had were some KG's I bought in the summer of 2006...long ass time ago. They were comfortable and great for playing ball. I wish I had a pair of them right now. I'm not paying 200 dollars for some ****ing Jordans lol.

SCREWston, you have any Nike SB's in your collection?

Got me a pair of these limited edition quickstrikes right here through a skateshop phone order.

Dunks have that Jordan 1 look.

I just went true to size. Not too hung up about creasing. If you wear your kicks, they will crease. Plus I have a nice rotation where the wont be worn out anytime soon. If there's too much room, I'll just throw in my sneaker shields. Great investment if you are worried about creasing shoes.

Decided to go with Finishline. With 15% cash back from discover and $20 rewards, final total is around $136

I love these Fire Red 3's in person... so much better than the pics.

Did 3's always come with this strong glue smell though? The fumes are craaaaazy. Gonna take a while for it to go away.

Nice. Looking forward to the collection pic. I always like seeing an accumulation of sneaker tastes.

Impossible to get rid of an ENTIRE collection though. You need shoes to wear. How many are you going to have in your rotation?

Man I don't even know. From the fall to 2014, some really nice releases are coming. Next up, I think I'm going with the Fear Vs. they've grown on me the more I see them and surpassed my liking for the Fear IVs. There's also these BAIT x Reebok Question I'm feeling but don't like my chances at getting them:








I'll snap a pic/video of my collection later, been wanting to do that.

I was trying to keep up with the back-and-forth here about sizing down. Are there specifics for when that should happen? For instance, I bought a white/blue pair of Jordan III's last summer that I haven't worn yet. Were those a size-down situation? I slipped them on once, and they felt big, but I couldn't tell if that was just because I hadn't broken them in yet.

Breaking a shoe in won't make it smaller. It only makes it widen out.

You just have to roll the dice. Last year's 3s ran big, but it seems they corrected the issue this year. I tried on my true-to-size Fire Red 3, and it fit perfectly.
