    Haven't seen one pic of these where the blue part isn't suede.

    How many times does it need to be said, the blue part is sanded leather like Gym Red 12's.

    Maybe Im way off here. But these are simply blue versions of the "flu games" from a few years ago. All materials look the same to me in pics so far. I like em. But the material debate has got me confused.

    Every single pic in this thread :lol: minus any prototypes or anything. Sanded leather is not the same as leather..( this part isn't a reply to you JRepp) so IDK why thats even a thing lol. If it's not like the OG's from 97 then its some weird suede.

    Im being serious here. What part are you guys actually talking about being diff on this shoe?


    Sanded leather leads to nubuck. I see zero nubuck on any of these pics.

    The blue area that is touching the black leather. Not the blue in the midsole or outsole.

    It's clearly not leather like the blk/red.

    Yeah.. the blue rand that comes up from the midsole onto the upper. It's the only part on the side profile of the upper that is blue. I assume you know what part we mean, it just doesnt look non-leather to you.

    Is anyone going to buy or not buy because it is or isn't sanded leather?

    I'll purchase if they hit outlets. :lol:
    But yeah I know its not standard leather, one video a few pages back showed that to me, but its not suede either, so just wondering what they did exactly....That's all.

    It's the same material as the Gym Reds last year. Whoever has those, pull them out. It's the same thing.

    Colorway is too fire for a Dallas boy....gotta cop
