Mate I am so glad S02 came through and you got your shoes. I will admit I was worried you wouldn't receive them at all, and my hat goes off to S02 that he didn't just bail when the pressure was on him, like I have seen other people do in previous runs.

Communication is the key and members usually don't mind delays if they are kept up to date. As for the shoes. I think they have turned out well and it was an excellent review TTG. I also wouldn't have any problem signing up for one of his future runs.

*Disclaimer: I did not order a pair from S02 but I would like to share my opinion. I currently do have a pair coming to me but Brad is doing those. Brad has had mine for several months working on them and I absolutely do not mind as I don't want them rushed. I would rather not have them now, but when they eventually show up they will be great, as opposed to wanting them in my hands today and having issues I can't live with.

IMO, if I received a pair of S02's shoes, I would not be happy with them. Just too many issues. If it were just one or two, maybe, but if nothing else all of the light issues makes me reeeeeaal nervous. What if in six months they go out? I certainly couldn't expect for S02 to offer a lifetime warranty, but when (if) they go out I'm screwed as I'm certainly not gonna fix 'em! So I really need to be confident that they were made solid and secure the first time, which I'm certainly not getting that feeling on this run. They just look like someone had to scramble to finish these and just saying, "Good enough...send them before they lynch me!!!"

This guy had a lot of..."personal issues" which caused delays. Look, we're not idiots. Many of us have been here long enough to hear these excuses and see the patterns. S02 bit off more than he could chew, we got it. I just wished he would have said so.
Look: "Guys, I have to admit that I'm overwhelmed at the amount of time this is taking. I honestly thought I could have every pair done by the time I promised but it's simply not going to happen. I apologize. However, here are three options.
One: I can offer you a full refund and I'll send the shoe back in it's current stage.
Two: I can get them done about a month after my promised due date but there will be some QC issues.
Three: I'll need 4 more months but they will be glorious when you receive them.
Either way, I will post up every Monday what my process is."
This would have made S02 a hero. Now he comes off (at least to ME) as someone who I can't trust. :unsure

I'm probably more picky about my props than most so maybe it's just me.

WOW! THE BEST & DETAILED REVIEW!!!!! I AGREE 101%!!!

I cant really say anything more or less as thegreatgalling has basically said and mention everything that is needed to be read and seen!!

Once again I have to protect my name.. I don't know what 'funky jedi' is up with his 2cents as he is obviously going for 'brad' version and has been waiting for several months so I guess its abit bias for your judgment & statement towards my service for more than 10 pairs in the 2months period and especially for that 'lifetime warranty' that you have to mention I guess you truly are a picky fellow… even NIKE doesn't offer that for their USD4-5k MAGs LOL and this is facts. But like thegreatgalling said 'I appreciate your perspectives gentlement. ' ;)

I do admit communication is key but I did not think at all that any of you are 'idiots' as 'funky jedi' once again has mentioned. I treat everyone like family in here & have been communicating with members through my phone and email when I could not access the web & when I'm outstation visiting my grandma, unlike what 'funky jedi' has once again mention; I DO NOT have "alot of family issues" it was just a week visiting my hospitalized grandma. I don't recall saying I have daddy, mommy or family issues, so I wonder why 'a lot of family issues' is mentioned once again by you know who..

Anyhoo great review like I said I don't expect 101% but its an experience and a lot have been learned on the fly for my 1st time 1st run... 2nd run coming up, improvements have to be made nothing major tho and I'm pretty excited!!! Cheers all!!!

Once again thegreatgalling thumbs up for GREAT & Well Documented review!!!

I don't mind being quoted so long as you properly quote me. Please go back and re-read what I wrote.

"personal issues", not "family issues", and yes, you WERE having personal issues.
I don't feel you have to come back and "protect" your name as you obviously delivered a product that many are happy with. Be proud of THAT. So this first run was a little rough, so what? Take it in stride and do better on the next one. Don't take offense because someone said something you didn't like. It's all part of being an artist.
That's all I will say on the matter.

What has been a mystery to me is why the ankle bubble hole in the heel cup is cut in such an awkward way and that the soles aren't painted entirely blue like in his advertising pictures.

I think it was due to the angle in which he cut them out. Looking at some angles it looks right and it some It doesn't. It isn't cut straight on, but on an angle.

These are also one of the first pairs he made, not from his most recent run. Not sure if the pics you are discussing were taken after this was made.

To be honest I never wore em. I'm a size 13 :lol.

They stay pretty rigid with that tennis ball plastic. If you plan on displaying your Poons Mitas, I def suggest it. They give the shoes that rigid upright look of the RDs.

I was recently contacted by a member here to fix some lighting problems he had with his S02 conversions. I wanted to compare the "finish" between his and mine, so here are my shoes next to S02's shoes and some other up close pics...

Hmmm, interesting. There are some things I like about his conversions and other things I have to wonder why he did that like the laces. They are the part I probably liked the least with those shoes, but no-way would I pull them apart like that to clean that up. I'd just live with it or make my own (as I am doing).

His strap is interesting.

Your toe is cleaner and I like your spatter too.

Oh and your Ankle Buckle looks way cooler :love

The ribs are there, they just don't stick out that much. You can feel them if you run your hand over the side. Personally I think the shoe looks sleeker without them being too visible.
