I was in my local mall on Tuesday trying to get a head start for the Pine Green Jordan 1 releasing on Saturday, and what started as a frivolous stop led me to very interesting discoveries. For the sake of protecting the individuals I conversed with, I will refer to the retailers in the story as store X and Y and so forth. I was in store X and asked one of the employees whether they still had the Jordan 13 Melo in stock to which he responded yes. I proceeded to ask him what they were going to do with the shoes and obviously they are sending it back to Nike via the RTV ( return to vendor) system. I then cast my line a little further and asked him if he could bring one of the pairs out and show me the flaws. And he went in the back brought the shoe out and pointed out the flaws which you see in the pictures below. Basically it was an awful glue that was used that caused the edges of the sneakers to turn red within a short period of time.
Those who got them early are going to get their account holders in trouble especially if Nike reps request an rtv. This might get interesting
