Worst quality I have ever seen on a Jordan to date.... I went to 4 different stores this morning, and every place could not sell anything over a size 11. I guess the smaller sizes were ok, but the larger sizes were so beat up, warped, creased, stitching pulling away from the seams..... absolutely terrible. This is a new low, even by Jordan Brands quality control. Like everyone who arrived at the stores before me, I passed..... LOTS of guys who ordered online this morning who wear larger sizes are going to be very let down and feeling ripped off come next week.
You are right. I went to one store and the guy told me before I even asked for the shoe that the pair he had available were heavily creased. I looked and them and they were. But the crease wasn't the crease you see from wearing. It looked like the leather had been heated and pushed into small waves. It was kind of a ripple effect. Needless to say I passed on those but did end up finding another pair that was on point. The store rep also said his boys in the ATL and Miss had the same problems with their shipments! Crazy.
Exactly. Its as if the shoe was "warped" from being put under heat or something like that. And the stitching and the seams are all wavy and pulling away from each other; even the mesh is warped along with the leather etc... Im happy you at least found a pair! I was not so lucky. between the 4 stores I went to, I looked at 10 pairs of size 12s.... and every single one was in the 3 out of 10 area. Just the fact that 4 stores had all of there size 12s left at 2pm in the afternoon of launch day says it all. I was able to get a pair of the obsidian 7 patchwork that I bet will be amazing quality and look fresh with a pair of dark denim jeans this fall, so the day was not a complete bust! On to the next!
