I’ve enjoyed this pair a lot. I’d been looking at this specific model for a while, as I liked the old-school/retro look mixed with the contemporary boost mid-sole. This version is made with significantly better quality materials than the later released “Iniki” model (which I also ordered, then returned due to its poor quality). The under foot experience is pretty much exactly like the NMD in the sense that it’s flat, with minimal arch support, and a pretty steep decline from heal to toe.
The boost is soft and enjoyable in the heal and mid-foot area, but barely noticeable (if at all actually) in the fore-foot. The upper fits very loosely, and there is really no foot “lock-down”, so you’re basically in for a bit of a “slip and slide” type of experience. Also, important to note, the shoe fits pretty much exactly one-size big (i.e. I am a true size 11 and had to order a size 10 for the shoe to fit).
All that being said, I get a ton of compliments on the shoe from people, and they are nice alternative to always wearing Jack Purcell converse or other “retro” casual sneakers.
As long as you know what you’re in for and have accurate expectations for the shoes, I think you’ll be happy with them.
3-Month Update: As cool as these shoes look, they have been a nightmare to wear the last 3 months. I’ve found myself constantly giving these shoes another shot because I feel like they look so cool, but man are they sloppy and uncomfortable to wear. The fit is boarderline “scary”. The shoes have a really significant feeling heel-toe drop, making it feel like you’re walking on almost a decline slope. There is zero structure in the upper, making rolling your ankle at least once, a very high probability.
There is no insole, just a basic stitched piece of fabric that serves only to cover the boost. As usual, the boost discolored quickly and started turning yellow. Mind you, I take very good care of my shoes, so the fact that this is happening so fast is just a bummer. I get serious calf pain, lower back aches, and ankle soreness after wearing these for anything more than a mile of total walking distance in a day.
Long story short, look past the aesthetics of the shoe, and gauge it for how it will function long term, which objectively, will be quite poorly.
