    and don't forget the boot toe. But that and the outrigger are fixable, maaaaybe the strap holder if it will come unglued, the biggest fault is the HUGE swoosh. The other staff where I work keep asking me to wear my BTTF shoes to work one day but I'm hesitant to do that as I often have to go out to the factory to repair computers out there and I don't want to wreck my V3's stepping in car oil or something. Maybe these would do.

    If anyone cares to see what the new LeBron14 Mag colorway looked like next to the V3.
    I had to get them, just because they looked so cool....and the soles glow in the dark, which I think is pretty slick.

    Here is the double USB charger I had mentioned a while back.

    Also whilst in Target looking for boots for my kids, I found these and can't help to think how close the front end is to a MAG.

    I ordered the V 2.7's as they were only about $100 US. Even if I do have to repaint the midsole, still gotta be better than HC. Look at that clear sole! (If I'm repainting the sole I might as well put an outrigger piece of clear plastic in there too)
    Maybe next pay, the V2.8's.
    Where did you find the $100 shoes?

    Did you receive them and how are they?

    The link has been deleted. (DHGate) They're scheduled to arrive on the 20th, and I will upload pictures if and when they do.
    (free shipping is usually slow shipping)
    I've contacted the seller for you asking if they are still stocking the shoes and if so to send the new link.

    Yeah links going up and down that's pretty common there. I'm only fine with it because Dhgate plays middle-man so there is no risk of losing money. Thanks for asking the seller.

    I really need a new pair for conventions. My HC lights are completely shot, the soles are on their way to a real good yellowing, and they are getting worn. I just do not see any point in putting in the time when there's so many new options out there with things like light-up straps and toe-slim already done.

    Where did you get your v2.7?

    In regards to ReAlign, it REALLY likes the V3's, but produces an interesting effect on some other materials.
    I encountered this before with my V2's but didn't take photos.
    I tested this morning on the 'sport' version of the MAG, the Halloween Costumes version, and a cheap Kmart shoe all at the same time.
    The 'powdery' effect can be removed by gently scrubbing at the shoe with a dry toenail scrubber or similar bristled item, and the water still beads off after removing the excess powdery material. So if anyone wants to use it on your V2's or HC's, this is what happens until you rub off the excess somehow. But it's easy enough to remove so don't stress. Interestingly, all it does for V3's is make the material a bit darker until it dries properly. The material must be significantly different in construction to cause this difference in effect. But then, the V2's, HC's and V3's all do feel different to touch (for those of you that don't have multiple versions to compare).
    I sprayed the ReAlign on my updated V3's for this test.
    When I receive the other versions of V2's which are trying to get close to looking like V3's (i called them V2.7 and V2.8) I'll test those too.

    Update: the powdery residue rubbed off the 'sport' version just by me rubbing my hands over the material.

    yep, same can did both the V2's and V3s, different result. Oh well at least it's not really a problem, just looks bad when it first dries. Then when you brush/tap at it it behaves more like a powder, and just comes off.

    Yep.
    I was actually having trouble getting a photo of the effect, as the water almost seemed to leap away from the HC's as I dripped it on them! And this is only from one coat (though it was a thick coat)

    What is that stuff?

    I never see anything like that when I use the Neverwet. The worst it has done is on a solid overlay (like that k-mart shoes toe) it dried slightly thick. But you could only see it if you shined the light on it the right way. Kind of like a dried coffee on a table.

    it's called 'ReAlign' - a waterproofing spray Cavx found and tested first. (i hope the first test wasn't on the V3's! ) Now that I know sometimes it leaves a powdery residue that can be easily cleaned up, I might use it on other cloth shoes like the Nike Shibusa's. A long time ago I bought some waterproofing spray from Foot Locker but it was useless. The ReAlign is awesome for waterproofing. I might have had something bad to say about it if the powdery excess couldn't come off, but it's fine. And never occurred on the V3's.

    It was actually I had tested the NEVER WET on my V2s and did not like the waxy feel it felt on them. So I did a light mist coat on the upper on the inside near the heel cup. It left no residue, so I continued. But at a mist coat, it also didn't really protect either, so I increased the amount and discovered the "wet look" thing it does and also how quickly it dries and no colour change.

    Something interesting about the realign is that it can be brushed off and then doesn't have any protection. I have water beads except for a small patch on the toe of my left shoe.

    I don't know with Dragon's can of Realign.

    Here is part of a "recycle" shopping bag I just treated tonight.

    In the 1st image you can see the colour difference from dry to wet.

    In the 2nd image it colour matched fine with no fury bits.

    As I have done to my work NIKE shoes.
    No issue at all with them. I am not sure if I need to clean the NeverWet off the V2s first.

    I will use the US8 pair as they have not been treated with anything, then report back.
