a wrote: Not sure but they may release in store today in london? Shame you’re not a 10 or I could’ve helped you out!

If you’ve got a 10 going spare I’ll take them?
Happy to pay extra, resale on these is too much to pay!

I don't get it at all, the aesthetic just doesn't do it for me, proper hiker/peado vibes.

I'm convinced people only buy them to be different as they don't want to wear yeezys or nikes like every other fucker.

Got the ALD olive 550 on early access, best colour of the bunch imo. They should release in store too I believe, not sure when though.

The materials are far better than most Nike, Jordan, adidas etc. The shapes are a bit more interesting as well.

Have a look at some of the ALD look books for inspiration.

Each to their own though…most other trainers have become far too commonplace, so I think people looking for a change.

NB are old news though aren't they? been wearing them for well over 15 years. You never have to justify why you like or wear something to anyone else imo lol

Love those white 990v3. They're on my hit list.

Agreed. Don't get the hype for them at all.


Had to read this to get up to speed with the kids. Seems they are trendy cos of some decent collabs and like you said, different from the mainstream hype

First NBs that have stood out for me. I like the hairiness of the suede. These are the same ones as people are posting up here right?

everyone dressing like a nonce dad that's why - think pedo tash, lens less glasses and a beaten dad cap with flares and a tote bag.

NB's were always appreciated for material, build, collabs and also being less obvious than Nike or Adidas.

You'd hope the materials were better given they're about double the price.

I like NBs but get annoyed as they used to ALL be MIE/MIUSA and good quality, then suddenly the quality is shit unless you pay 3 times the price and then you can get a decent pair.

It's not that different from the way other sneaker firms work just that NB were decent value after Nike and Adidas went to shit quality so annoys me more.

The Made in England/America line’s quality (especially collabs) have always beaten Nike and Adidas since I started buying NB back in 2010 or so. Some Nike models are belting design-wise but they’re rare and everyone starts wearing them fast which is annoying when you see an 18 year old wearing the same trainers as you.

The last quality Nike stuff were the am1s of around 2008/9 then they dropped off pretty quick.

Can't help think the current NB hype crowd are in it for the '#irony'
