I've got a pair of Cali's and Quartersnacks on the way. Cali's are probably gonna be sold to pay for the other.
I've always wondered, do people who buy quickstrikes ever skate them? Like buying one to skate and one to stash?

I used to skate alllll of my Dunks, no matter how rare. That was before I had to pay my own rent. I'm definitely going to wear the QSs.
 
I'm trying to figure out what a quickstrike is anymore. Every single "hype" shoe my shop has been pushing is now on the Nike site. I even used a discount code to pay below retail and free shipping. (I ordered the QS dunks from an NC shop.)

QS is no more, used to be "Core" shops only, not even online. But Nike got rid of it. Now even Nike Store, Tilly's and Zumiez get select QS.

Latest example is the "beach" janoski.

Philly that owns our local shop here (Humidity in New Orleans) makes a point to skate the shit out of every rare nike release.  His instagram is a trail of hypebeast tears.

Does anyone have a release date for these things? I'm on my third pair of Gatos and this colorway is too good to pass up

They should be out soon, or already out.

I believe they are for Holiday season.

I'm gonna have to agree with you on that one. I can't feel the damn board at all. When i ollie, i feel like  my forward foot just slips and it doesn't grip it like what a vulc shoe would do. Also the way the toe is constructed...i try to go with what ripped laces advice by kick flipping enough to shape the toe to a more pointy look and i can't. They're too round! plus they drag too.

I'm gonna have to try it again especially with the white coming out and possibly size up because they also feel i'm crunching my toes together.

I don't like the Gatos at all to skate in. It could be my imagination but the midsole feels wedged to me, like I am angled up on my toes. I'm also not a fan of the sole. Both the shape and lack of grip. It took me literally 30 minutes before I took them off and put them right back in the box. I haven't been that sketched out by a shoe in a long time.  They will be relegated to chiller status.
