I even think black high end “sneakers” with white soles look a bit naff/basic

Picked these up and backed them. The leather was great on them, super soft but can't get on with black sneakers unless they're suede or canvas.

I think high quality monochrome sneakers with contrasting (preferably gum) sole have a classy but understated vibe. And while I think these looks stunning on their own, I’d have to agree it’s difficult to pull off black leather sneakers in a fit. Probably better choice to go for white or brown suede.

Remind me of badly dressed ex footballers in waistcoats on Monday night football these days.

They are 997s, and yes they fit true to size.

Possibly a slight different colour and only in small sizes but half the price for the 997s, a few other colours too

How do you find the comfort on the 4d's compared to boosts? I have seen quite a few people report they are less comfortable!

The ultra boost 1.0 is still for me today the most cushiony trainer I've come across. Didn't care much for future iterations of it as they nailed the design with the first one, so was pleased when Adidas started re-releasing them.

In comparison the 4Ds have all the comfort of ultra boost 1.0 around your foot as they are basically the same trainer, but with a more robust midsole. I find them being a bit firmer not that huge of a compromise.

Not been this excited for an Adidas product since 1.0s released.
