Did StockX send you that photo of the pebble? If so, I should've asked them what was wrong with the pair I tried to get rid of since they said it showed signs of wear . I get my DS pair sent back yet I see plenty of stories of people receiving clearly worn pairs from StockX.Wow, you must have the cleanest carpets in the whole world! You never had ANYTHING fall in them? My wife & I never wear our shoes in the house, yet, things get in your shoes, on your coat, clothes, etc and fall to the ground. And so I have the proof, here is the pic of the pebble in question. Very very very tiny.
Notice that there is ZERO dirt, grime in the grooves? It's because I never wore them. And the pebble wasn't in them when I took them out of the box, lol.
I misspoke on the condition, my apologies! Shouldn't have used DS. Should have said never worn outside & tried on (one shoe) once in my room! I did try the right shoe on when I first bought them in 2004. Why did I have them since and never wore them? I dunno? I'm sure I'm not the only one who buys shoes and tries them on once and never actually wears them. Plus I was dealing with boatloads of medical problems then (just had a liver transplant & a bowel obstruction during that time).
I was going to let this go, but since others kept making fun of my post, for the sake of it, here are the shoes. They are French Blue 12s not Flint Grey. Forgot what they were as I actually hadn't opened the box back up since I sent them late last summer . You can tell they were never worn as with Jordan XIIs the creasing is instant you wear them and can't get rid of it (and no, I never have not would I try that iron trick. I am one who doesn't mind creasing, especially in Jordan 1s). Plus 2004 retros had really nice soft leather so they crease easily.
I will say, that the original paper has been left in them. When you leave that in, it does leave marks on the soles as it does yellow over time (paper is acidic I believe, someone correct me on that) Probably should have taken that out but back then, no one thought much of it.
All I'm trying to do is move a large part of my collection because it's that time. You reach a point in your life and realize what is more important to you. I'll still buy certain releases (upcoming OG V, Fire Red 4), but once that day happened when I hesitated on a release, I knew it was time to move on. Keep a decent few and off the rest to others who would want them. I'm 43 and NOT a guy who buys the newest release to flip. Just ask around in the Agassi thread and ask Nelson and a few others. Not trying to pull one over on someone, just was shocked they said they were worn (and my definition is wearing them actually around).
