Complaints Both Real And Imagined 

We're not trying to offend our connects, but we can't be the first ones to have a few issues with the quality of some of these retros. We know what leather, nubuck, and suede should look like and feel like after a few wears — take your time and do it right, ruining the legacy of a great shoe is a sure way to ruin brand loyalty. At the same time, it's funny when someone who wasn't even born when a sneaker was originally produced immediately declares a retro to be sub-par. How would you know?
