Wear sneaker shields and it will get rid of the creasing
I've been wearing mine with sneaker shields since I bought them, but they still creased in the very front part of the toebox. Granted, it's not as bad as the whole toebox being creased.. but they still look smiley: sick

Common guys, it's a kick and creasing is part of the overall look.
Dudes with creases get respect, remember that!

Man I picked up the black/gray ones and they are incredibly uncomfortable IMO. The pleather is tough and stiff and for some reason theres a part inside the shoe that rubs against my foot and it hurts after awhile. Some of the most uncomfortable shoes ive ever worn.

damn are they really that bad??
I've worn my white/royal about 4 times and they're not getting any more broken in, it seems.  The leather is like that vinyl/leather hybrid they used to use on Pro Wings.  I think that's my biggest issue.  I don't mind creases, but it's as if this leather has minimal give.

If it weren't for the nostalgic factor, I'd probably get rid of my white/royals and roll the dice on my two pairs of 2000 retros not crumbling into dust.

Recently picked up sample pair of the white/red/royals for $47 at the Outlet and I have to say I am kinda disappointed with the shoe. Looks isn't the problem but for whatever reason on the left pair  you can feel the plastic piece sticking out from inside of the shoe near the forefront. Not the worst feeling in the world but still a nuisance especially since it is only on the left pair. Maybe it will get better after a couple wears. And these are my normal shoe size.


I can still remember passing on a pair of white/yellow 89's at an Outlet in Texas in '99ish.smiley: mad

THIS. This is exactly what im talking about in my post above. Funny because it's only the left shoe on my pair too. Overall very dissapointed. As far as looks go they are on point, but I had to change my sneakers at lunch during work because the flight 89s were incredibly uncomfortable.

I wear mine with sneaker shields, so I don't feel that pleather in the forefront that you guys are talking about. However, that forefront pleather is what creases on my pair.

I still find my pair very comfortable.. even with sneaker shields since I use a smaller sized insert as opposed to my shoe size. (size 9 insert; size 10 shoe) The cushioning in the tongue and ankles are heavenly.
