Horrible in person.

Not sure what the deal is with the trend that Nike has going in mid/high top runners. They're the most ugly fucking things I have ever seen in my life!!!





I love the look of those Mercurial Superfly Free! I also like the Footscape Magista's... To each their own, i guess!

I welcome new things and brands doing different stuff like this, but what's the point?? Like, what does it do for your performance?? Or are they meant to wear with joggers our something?? I just don't get it... There can't be added ankle support. Do people's ankles get cold when they go running?? Is that thing??

Just a casual shoe, Nike makes actual running shoes for running. The Mercurial is a soccer-based shoe you can wear off the pitch!

Sure, you can run in these, with the free sole, but no one will.

I'm no scientist (and I promise this isn't a preface for snark), but my guess is that the elasticity of the ankle-sock is helpful in securing the shoe more to your feet. Think about it: when you lace a shoe up, there's still a bit of slack due to it not being sealed off at the top. This looks like it aims to fix that problem.

Yeah, that's the point. Those mercurial free's that zebra posted are just to chill in but the actual performance soccer ones have that Ankle sock to secure tightly your foot to the shoe. I think it's really cleaver and i dig the look actually. I tried a magista street the other day and holy fuck, that shit really works! your foot feels so safe and you dont even need to tight them that much. Also, when do PICs of the koston 3 land here? I'm really curious to see them.

I feel like the OG dunk look like an improvement of the IW Dunk and not the contrary :D

Speaking of the GTS, came across this: www.grailed.com/listings/339576-nike-nike-gts-1995-usa-olympics, wish Nike would model their current run of the GTS more after these, than the ones they got out at the moment.

I had to go up .5 in the Ishod dunk.

Still prefer the original dunk than the IW.

Whole point of dunks is the bulky, and they're not even bulky, in my opinion.

That was always a fantasy "wouldn't that be cool" spot whenever I walked by. Ishod has the problem of making it look so easy that it makes me pretty confident that I could do it, but there's just no way, and it messes with me on an existential level.

That has got to be the biggest bust spot in the city. He must have done it first try.

I tried on the Ishod dunk, and it's exactly what t looks like. A minimal dunk low. The sole is lower profile. No padding anywhere really, except for the insole.

As said in past comments, they're narrow. I wear an 11 in the regular Dunk Low SB, and the size 11 in the Ishod Dunk is still too narrow. With all the padding missing, it made them feel too big, also. Took 2 steps in it and it felt weird as fuck. If my feet weren't so damn wide, I'd probably be into them.

Quality looks and feels great. If you're looking for minimal dunk low or cupsole in general, look no further.

I changed the stock insole for my jaws fp one and they fit ok.
They are slim, but broke in fast. I wouldn't suggest sizing up.

Yeah I'm aware of that, so therefore it means that Nike makes better Converse shoes than Nike makes Nike shoes

Saw some Koston 3s in the wild yesterday, fuckin' weird. Kinda like a free-ish looking sole attached to a p-rod 9ish looking upper with an ankle booty thing similar to the running shoes at the top of this page.
