    i agree on the 5’s, my girlfriend says the 13’s match the shirt better. i’m gonna take both and decide on the day. :thumbs2:

    Well you your first mistake is going to Brisbyland. And the second is not knowing 5’s superior, 13’s inferior.

    Ha! i was just trying to coordinate. i haven’t worn half the shoes i bought the last 2 years because i never go anywhere. 5’s were the first choice, 13’s were to match the shirt. Both are two of my favorite styles of J’s.

    Did they make any 5 13 hybrids like the other mash ups over the years?

    5s are nice but so are the 13s. Id rock the 13s. I remember getting og 13s when they dropped, the hype was real back in the day. Kids dont seem to like them as much these days though.

    Got my j1 and j4 replaced in my size. just as booty as the larger sizes. Cage flaw on the 4s still, plus i realized the leather was different too. They are more tumbled instead of the older leather style used on the retail white oreos. Thats the budget vs the more expensive rep though. The j1s were actually university red 85s. i thought they were reverse banned mids. Would have been okay with the highs but they are trash too.. shape is off and they used the wrong leather. the retail 85s are smooth, these bogus budget reps were tumbled. The smooth leather reps are about 10-15 dollars more. Im going to tell superbuy to give them to warehouse staff during chinese new years. Kind of glad they were wrong size and my nephew didnt get them.. straight booty.

    Got news on my air max 98 cny.. 3rd store with no stock. I Should have bought them years ago. I like them but im not paying resell for them.. goat has retail for about 300 aud.

    So, i go from one old shoe to another rare old shoe. Ordered those jayz jordan 4 concepts last night instead of trying a 4th store for the air max cny. the j4s look roughly the same minus the tongue tag.. jumpman vs jayz tag. hopefully they have some in stock cause i always wanted these too. they are kind of like the 11 tuxedo. the cages look vertical in the shot below but they are black and i could live with it. i mean i think 1 or 2 people ever got the concepts. so its a callout shoe by kiddo sneakerheads, but i dont care. fire shoe

    Im not really a hypebeast but I ended up with those J5 Offwhite and ordered some Travis Scott Lows last night. I wanted them after ppl have turned on him. always liked the design. I went and got the DT batch for 290 Yuan (45 USD) I dont know much about the batch. There are cheapers batches but most of them share similar flaws and the cheapest budgets (around 20 USD) seem to have a the other budget flaws plus a swoosh flaw, off color mats or sus/dead suede that needs a suede brush. Def more expensive batches for 30-40+ more with known quality but I went with DT instead. Should have just paid more but eh. These are from a known seller and should be in stock.

    Not a sneaker and more hypebeast shit but ordered this bag for 7 USD last night. I use to have a similar style camo bag when i was younger and wanted another when i saw it for cheap. this just happens to have supreme branding on it

    Yeah, but wait a couple of days and we can see what the 45 dollar quality is. Dude shipped out today so 1-3 days until it hits the warehouse and I get QC pics.

    What i do know is that ive been digging deeper and been checking out 1688. its basically the alibaba for china and requires minimum quanity orders and the such. its where chinese go to buy stuff from factories/distributors/wholesellers etc to resell on taobao etc. i tried to order two budget j11s tonight and will see what happens. I noted they were samples to my agent. I got by on alibaba years ago ordering 1 piece as a sample when they required like 10 units min.

    Anyway

    BUT this is the quality TS i found for 650Y (101 USD).... nice suede huh

    Yeah, i always thought they should release them. IDK maybe its something to do with JayZ signing with puma back in the day so they x'd it for now. That store actually shipped them and if they are good, i might order the jordan 4 infrareds they have too. This CW is suppose to offically drop in 2022 i think.

    Got my 45 dollar shoe. Its more than that really. If you include shipping to aus and currency coversion and paypal fees its closer to 70-75 maybe. IDK to ship one shoe is 26 usd, 47 to ship 2. With shoe boxes. AND its cheaper to ship to aus than it is to the USA through superbuy. regardless, its not cheap shipping with an agent these days. Even something like taobao direct went up, but nothing like agents.

    Anyway. Im not really a QCer and I dont know much about this shoe as opposed to say Jordan 4s. Having said that, for what I paid, Im happy. Suede looks alive. The color looks decent. I dont see and noticeable flaws other than the "I"ordan flaw on the back logo. Not a clean J, looks more like an I. Meh, im cool with it. That flaw can be seen on retail TS shoes too. R isnt the cleanest either. I wonder if I can clear it up with a sharp blade? Doesnt matter regardless.

    $75-$100<$200

    So unless shipping is $100 it seems a better way to go.
