Most of us have enough vintage shoes that we don't need Nike to pre-yellow its releases for us... If I want to wear a shoe that looks halfway beat I'll dip into my stash. This release is a buzzkill, for me anyhow

it looks like those might be coming out with the vintage treatment too. I'm shocked they're not dropping this year for the 25th Anniversary, but oh well.

the swoosh should be blue too though (& da sole should be three-tone)

The vintage treatment actually looks somewhat acceptable.. Although I am in favor of aging my own shoes, through years of wear.. Maybe they don't believe their own products can last years anymore and if you want that vintage yellowed look, you better buy them NEW that way

Maybe it'll be similar to the vintage on those AJ 1s a while back.  IIRC people were just wiping it off with a Mr. Clean magic eraser...

Guess I'm in the minority, I'm actually a fan of the vintage look. The Nike Cortez that dropped this year with the vintage leather was nice. I liked the AJKOs that dropped last year, as well as the vintage Pegasus and Tailwinds.

Might try to cop the AM 1s. My Infrared AM 90s from a few years back are still DS. Hopefully they drop some more OG color-ways(done correctly) of the AM 90s.

all lookin good. Was never a big fan of the vntg treatment but it grew on me. Ive always needed a new pair of infareds, but id prob rather pay up for a pair from last release then cop the vintage. the am1s look real nice. Gonna tough to decide which ones to cop

So are these discounted in price? The yellowed midsole is basically an unpainted midsole, just raw foam. That's gotta be at least $5 off in price.

these will probably still be painted...with piss yellow "vintage" paint. Probably the same process they used for the "vintage" AM Lights from last year. So disappointed with that shoe, wanted to cop, but that pee stained midsole just looked horrendous.

I've been told you can just wipe it off, but according to this guy, nothing really works, you'll have to re-paint it
