Eh this quality talk is a bit overblown, yes there is a difference but i think some folks exaggerate/stretch the difference to keep their shoes vastly superior in their mind. I own numerous foams from early 2000's and ive seen pairs with glue, creases, and even those air bubbles in the heel that some people think are new. I think all this quality talk stems from the 2010 GR pearls, seems like EVERY pair was riddled with shallow grooves and air bubbles so now people slap a sub par label on any new foams. Other than the pearls the new colors are still damn good quality my reds, pines, slimes,limes, royals, galaxies, and gym greens are all flawless.
My Retro Blue Foams have shallow +$% grooves. I barely ever complain about quality, but it's bad.

Guess what my silver n black pros have shallow grooves too, my whole point is that even some older foams had quality issues too.

I think its simple, Nike is making 10x more foams so by mathematics alone the errors will increase and 10-15 years ago everybody wasnt goin over shoes with a fine tooth comb,magnifying glass,microscope, and takin pics. Most people were buying shoes and actually putting them on so they wouldnt notice the small imperfections that keep so many nitpickers awake at night.

Yes the foam mold has changed slightly, i just dont think its as drastic as some people make it seem. Its not like theyre 1 wear af1's, u can still get a ton of wears outta the new foams and besides the icy sole issue the upper still looks great.

Exactly. Now a day, jits cop sneakers, stare at them, and take pictures. Back in the day, you would buy a pair of sneakers and if you didn't walk out of the store with them on, you'd at least wear it that weekend. Cats didn't look for imperfections in shoes.

The foam bubble may have burst, as i looked on ebay there seem to be a lot of good colorways just sitting with no bids... metallic reds, coppers, anthracites, blck/blck pros to name a few.

A couple months ago that never happened, whatever the reason i hope the hype has finally leveled out.

I've seen VNDS Eggplants in my size go hella cheap.  Good sign indeed.

I agree the hyper-hype on the foams has died down a bit.
Recently got a pair of VNDS foam pros from 2002 for $360. 
Would have been higher a few maionths ago.

To da dude who said baltimore aint on da kick game like dat, that aint tru at all. When it comes to Foams.............Dats all ima say bruh we been rockin dopes here heavy back b4 it was cool to do so. i would break da reason we call em dopes down but i think its pretty self explanatory lol. and to homie who said he aint kno we be on da kick game dont take it as a diss homie dat aint what im tryna do. hell i was in gaffney south carolina 2 weeks ago and my cousin even kno bout da dopes now i used to wear em back in da day and they look like "whats dat blah blah blah". now they line up for em and everything.
