Tried on the North Face MTE last night, first pair, super comfy and warm.

Nike did it again- guess this is the third installment of their wool AM97 collection. Not gonna lie, I have a soft spot for green runners- especially winterized ones.

why do NFL players smoke weed if there are rules? wrote:they look ridiculous. there, i'll say it. wear boots you one eyed monsters.


Some of the skate-hi ones have been way over the top (especially the bean boot inspired ones), but I stand by my decision to purchase these beauts:

My TNF MTEs came today. I have nothing to compare them to but they're really warm and comfortable. Definitely fill the void on those days where I don't want sit around in boots all day but don't want my feet to freeze while walking to the train. Will also probably take them on snowboarding trips as an easy/warm thing to throw on while walking around.

y'all don't need validation from theb9 to wear whatever shoes you want - but I don't understand why not just fucking wear boots?

Posted a few pairs in the for sale section- been on a sell before buy routine as I have way too many kicks I don't even wear anymore taking up space.

I haven't bought kicks since the all white leather AM1 Jewels this summer, I think that's a new record for me.

i got a pair of those Vans pseudo-boots last year and they rule. mine have a flannel lining and are toasty as fuck in the winter. for 40 bucks they're totally worth it. mine seem to be holding up pretty well a year later too.

Nike x Off White is dropping tomorrow for those who are interested.

Also, the triple black AM 97 drop the 24th and OG Silver Bullets drop the 25th.

Hope to bag something- I need a crisp pair for the upcoming Holidays.

Definitely going to take a run at the prestos, am90s and the jordans.


I'm also still on the hunt for an all-day pair or two of sneakers for work.

Same- I like the AM90s too, they'll all no doubt sell out in minutes as resale on most of them is $1k+. Nuts.

I'll more than likely grab these- really can't go wrong with an all black pair of AM97 for winter:

Twitter people are saying that if you saw every size available then chances are it won't go through. Looks like everyone who pulled anything was able to see live inventory when they added.

Yo for people who skate, what shoes held up the best for you? I usually just skate in vans. I've had so many pairs of different kinds but they all get destroyed on the sides from flicking. Had one pair of Janowskis that ripped a couple years ago, too. Though, the Nikes did last longer than any vans I've had.

Yep- that was my third strike. I'll try my luck with those black TN/97 hybrids tomorrow or the all black or OG 97s over the weekend. Shit sucks.

I used the SNKRS app and literally had each pair carted @ exactly the drop times and still ended up with nothing.

Hopefully they'll be an easy cop- can't go wrong with a simple color AM with 3m on it.

The bullets are classics, I might try for them too depending on how my finances look at the end of the week.

can anyone recommed a shoe similar to the roshe run, but a bit warmer/good for late fall/winter? specifically i like how supportive the roshes are and that the mesh puts no pressure on the sides of my feet, making it possible to walk 10+ hours in them.

97s fit a little more snug/ narrow in the toebox than AM1's. I have a wider foot but usually go true to size as they eventually break in after a few wears.
