Almost all gone at the Premium outlet in Seattle. Picked mine up. Can't wait to ball in them.

I went to Woodburn as well to save tax but apparently some guy bought 30+ pairs with F&F discount to ship overseas. Limit 1 per customer my ass.

Can anyone explain why the new LBJ ext is so hyped up? Because it's QS?

They go for $250 US retail...

I ship anything i purchase in the US to PointRoberts now, there is no point dealing with brokerage and customs

Plus, a nice cheap tank of gas there is well worth it

Kinek point is another option, They just charge you 5 bucks a box.

Size is no question got 4 wheels with tires shipped to them it was 20 bucks (4 boxes). Got my new camera shipped there, small box only about 12" by 6" by 6" cost me 5 bucks (1 box).

no taxes on the 5 bucks, its super easy and I have been using the service for over a year with about 10 packages there and never had any troubles.

I only wish I had known about this when I bought my exhaust cause customs on my $700 exhaust was $140.

Guys looking for a little help as it has been a while since I bought a pair of jordans.

Looking at the XI concords from 2011 I believe, what is the general rule on sizing? same as your normal nike size? or do they run big/small?

Thanks.

I'm a 9.5 in Jordans but in the XI's I'm a 10. They fit snug and the patent leather doesn't really stretch so they make for a fairly uncomfortable fit to be honest.

Patent leather I go half a size up, I'm usually a 10.5 but for IX's and XI's I go to size 11.

i just got a pair of GM jams with fresh icy soles... they look identical to my 2009 release ones other than the bottom. Shoe is on point! It's really up to the person who's wearing the shoe...

Yeah. There's a lot floating around. I wouldn't pay $400+ on GM jams though. Maybe $200-250.

What's foolish is purchasing $200 for a fake pair of shoes. Sheesh, that's more than retail price when they came out in (MSRP in the US). If you can stomach it, great for the vendor. If I missed the boat on a release, I would just wait since Nike will be re-releasing in several years anyways.

Funny how ben baller is rocking fakes (see his restored Space Jams). Whatever, it's like a wealthy person wearing a fake high quality rolex. If you're happy with your purchase great. For me, I could not stomach it for that price.

Compared one of them so called "grey market" XI concords to my XI concords when a friend was about to buy from a seller on craigslist.

A couple things I saw that were off:

1. Shoe horn - fakes had smaller shoe horns. Different Color.
2. Stitching was slightly different on certain parts
3. "23" at the heel side was different. Not less quality, just slight different size and positioning.
4. Stitching of jumpman. A bit different. Again, not less quality, just different.
5. Carbon fiber. It looked a bit off, but the feel and texture were similar. Again, just different.
6. Sole - fake pair was icy. My pair had slight yellowing already.

You're saying that your pair looks great. Good for you, you got lucky, not every pair will be like that. Or maybe you're just biased since you bought a pair already.

More horror stories of these "grey market" / "straight from the factor" shoes at:

Air Jordan XI CONCORD AFTERMATH thread. STILL NO BUYING/SELLING/TRADING!


And that's how much I inspected, I don't even know if the cushioning was the same or not. Odds are, it could be different as well.

I don't mean to attack you or anything. In fact, I think it is a great discussion.

Now, on to Grey Market Pairs. It's funny that Grey Market Pairs got their claim to fame because these are "excess" or "unauthorized" pairs from the original manufacturer(s). Do you honestly believe that it is from the same official factory that Nike hired to make these shoes ? There could be thousands of them. Anyone in the import/export business will know that you can get simple material goods made in quite a few different sources in China at good quality if you have the money.

It's quite trivial really. If you can conceive that the goods can be duplicated very well at different sources (not just the original manufacturers that made the goods), plus there is money to be made for these fakes, you will see high quality fakes in the market.

I've been following the GM thread on niketalk since day 1. It's best to put this topic to rest, and not expose any content out of it before members will wonder where they can get these.

People are always going to be divided on whether or not grey market Jordans are in fact real and there's no sense in arguing.

Oh man, those xx8 are so grippy and so comfy. I think it stands up to how it advertised as best performing Js ever.

I still have a BNIB us8.5, anyone wanna trade?

By the way, where can I get Green Glow?
