Re: Need to return a pair of XX8 SE's, should I go back to the strore or go through Nike?
Yes you can send it back directly to Nike and they will issue credit. I also had to do this with a pair of jordans that were defective (wish I didnt do it tho). The only problem is that you have to send the shoes to them, then they have to inspect the shoes to see if it is a defect or just normal wear and tear, so it could take awhile. I would go to the store you purchased them from and talk to them about it, they might be able to just swap them out with another pair right then and there, not sure though.
