    No, I mean the elastic on the standard shoes pulls up a bit on the SWOOSH side. It is sewn securely on the inner side. These Power Laces seem to be the same, sewn on the inner side only.
    Oh, I got it now.! My bad

    I've been stalking the mag threads for a couple of years but I took a break from this site for a while and I was wondering if someone can clear up a few things for me.
    1.So with the v3s what are the problems that people are having with the electronics and has anyone came up with a fullproof way to fix them yet.
    2. How accurate is the el color on the v3s compared to the RD's and has anyone found out why the EL is dimmer on the v3s than the RDs.
    3. Has anyone completely changed all the electronics in the v3 or is it only the EL that has problems.
    4. Should I stay away from the v4s or is it too early to say. Guess I should just wait for Jedi to rip a pair open but I want to hear your guys opinions.
    Thanks again. I'm asking most of these questions because Im looking to get a pair soon and I want to Know what I can do to make them better.

    Not yet. In all honestly, we need to move from wires and go to a copper tape on electrical tape. This way the conductor is both flat and strong.

    2. How accurate is the el color on the v3s compared to the RD's and has anyone found out why the EL is dimmer on the v3s than the RDs.
    From the documentation done from those that have/had the 2011 shoe and now the 2016 shoe, the EL colour is the same. The cloth was slightly greenish but has now been corrected. The cloth weave is still slightly off. There are slight differences in the profile of the midsole and the V3 tends to lean back but very close. For the price I don't think you will get a better replica. Dimming of the LEDs has improved the overall lighting of the shoe. Too much power was being used by the LEDs, hence the EL looked dim. That is fixed now.
    3. Has anyone completely changed all the electronics in the v3 or is it only the EL that has problems.
    It has been done but this is not a DIY thing and not something I'd be comfortable doing.

    4. Should I stay away from the v4s or is it too early to say. Guess I should just wait for Jedi to rip a pair open but I want to hear your guys opinions.
    Thanks again. I'm asking most of these questions because Im looking to get a pair soon and I want to Know what I can do to make them better.
    At this stage, I'd stay away. Time will tell, but the V3.1 seems pretty good now.

    The yellow box is the one all v3's come in. Also, the tracking has been updated, and it's now inbound for tomorrow. I'll be sure to post picks. I like both boxes the same, honestly. The way the white one opens reminds me of the DeLorean doors

    i meant the one he posted a while ago, not the v3 box.
    it kinda looks like the case that holds the plutoneum in the movie.

    The actual box looks good. Just need to put a small bit of glue on one area. I'm not so sure I want to ask them to send a new one, in the event of the new one breaking as well

    I will be expecting compensation at the very least. In other news, we have our first look at the inside of the v4's

    Agreed. I spoke with David on Skype, and they are sending out a new box, this time thoroughly wrapped in bubble wrap.
    Honestly, if damage didn't occur in these 3 places, I would have been able to accept it. I've touched up the box for the last couple of hours with super glue, to make it more like the real one

    I've often wondered what the mags might look like if they'd used the material on the inside, as the outside. Would it be closer to the originals, @Jedifyfe ?

    Not sure what Jedifye will say, but I'd say too shiny like the MP MAGs.
