Are the Bruins as good now as they were a few years back?

They are as close to the "Grant Taylor edition" as we will ever get again. Even better without the plastic strip around the top of the sole. Everything else is exactly the same (some of them have stitched swooshes, some have transferred ones)

This is a great colorway, just not done on the right incarnation of the Bruin >:(

Those toe cap ones are blazers, not the CK right?

Yeah the toe cap ones are the Blazer Zoom Low XT and the other ones are just the Blazer Zoom Low according to the site they were on.

A nike drop that doesnt suck, how rare is that nowadays?

Koston 3's are such a dope shoe to skate in and that cw is sick.
Normal blazer low's are the way to go too. Never liked the thin/flimsy GT version of it.
Dunk cw are nice too, wish they were puffy tho.

Yup, mighty fine looking shoe. That gum with the white swoosh looks sick.

I guess no more 'pro model' names, (Janoski excluded)  so they cut the price down.

It's across the board, all shoes dropped $5.
There will be specific ishod and grant colors of those shoes, but yes the pro modes have all become team models.

Nike was a go to option for everyone for awhile cause they lasted longer due to better quality. Now it seems their quality has dropped dramatically.

A friend of mine found a pair of CK1's at Ross. He was skating them for like 2 weeks and the shoes just started blowing out on the inside of his foot. Not even on the outside. Not sure if that's common for some people because of the way they skate or what, but seemed like a quality issue to me.

Anyone else seen this before??

A couple of my buds had this happen as well. The inside was just falling apart.

Maybe I have just been getting lucky, but I've never had an issue with any of my Nikes, whether they be the Bruin or Blazer. Although lately I have not been skating nearly as much as before, but even then the issues I've dealt with Huf or Vans are non existent with Nike so far.

Even just walking in Janoski, they've been using cheap suede for a while now.

But when they put "premium" on the box label, at least those pairs are top-notch. But for the regular release ones, not so much.

actually the catch might be that it has the shitty soft toe of the GT blazers rather than the dope structured toe of hightop blazers

i have the first black and white colorway of the CK all court and i've been really impressed by the quality. but im not sure if it's the "premium" version or not.

It was a QS release for the first color to come out, they might have put little more quality on those. Some QS pairs are a little better made and different materials than the regular ones.

Just a thought. The 917 and Supreme GT blazer low have good materials on them and constructed well.
