Re: how to read the nike tag

010911 actually means;
produced in year 2001
between September (09) & November (11).

Theres always a 2-month time frame that Nike uses to show when the shoes were actually produced.

Re: how to read the nike tag

any clarification on the date thing???

For example, would the numbers 001202 mean December 2, 2000 or February 12nd, 2000?

Also, with regards to the 3 year rule for returning, if I wanted to return a shoe that was dated feb. 12 , 2000 - i would have until feb 11, 2003 to return it right?

Re: how to read the nike tag

thanks for the link, SLIM. that confirms what RON said.

so 001101 means produced in november 2000 through january the next year.

btw, regarding "made in indonesia". i thought nike left us, but apparently i saw some new AF1s and penny's air flight wings with "made in indonesia" labels.

Re: how to read the nike tag

I always thought it was the Day because im pretty sure i had one with "22" for the date digits. Not 100% certain, though.

Re: how to read the nike tag (for those who dont know)

The first number on the style numbers have changed to 3. All of the new nike's my store has received, (running, cross-trainining, jordans, etc) all begin with 3. Anyone know why nike changed the system?

Re: how to read the nike tag (for those who dont know)

The 2-month time frame usually applies to all regular release models.

Having said that, I have pairs that has 329632 & 330581 to mention a couple. And those are definitely not dates ... however, those are special promo color editions.

even my Pippen 4s (player issues w/ vis-Zoom heel) has numbers that are definitely not refering to dates.
