Look at the little tag on your true blues, could be wrong but I bet there pleather, the white 5s were pleather


I'm sat with my 01 cement 3's in my hand now and I don't think they're real leather, but the little clear tag with the material simbles as gone, if they are leather they should have a hide shape symbol, if they are synthetic the symbol is I diamond!

could one of you who have copped check this out for me

True blue retos a lot better than the fire red in terms of quality.

Blacks look solid will cop later.

Doubt very much they'll be real leather!

of course they're real leather idiot

Laughing out loud

Quality sucks anyways.
Copped those Retro White Cements and after 2 weeks the paint on the midsole started to chip off.
I wouldn't pay 100 pound for that kind of crap.

Im using my phone as modem to access internet so bit of a pain to take a pic - trust me the sticker inside the shoe has the leather symbol for the upper.
