    Get the ZX 4000 4D Onix. There, now we’ll have the same shoes.

    Back in Manila and finally unboxed Yeezy Synth.
    Since I have small feet, I decided to try the kids version. I was unsure if it'll fit because of the narrow upper but I was wrong. I got the biggest kids size and fits just right. (Cannot wear thick socks with it)

    Synth looks less bulky than the usual 350, with thinner laces and without heel pull tab.

    TTS (but can be on the snug size).. I usually go half size up on V1 700's (Wave's, Inertia's, Utility Black) because of the toe box.. but TTS on V2's (Geode, Vanta's).
    If your 8.5's on Nike fits "just right", your 8.5 in the Utility Black might fall on the relatively snug side.. but not overly uncomfortable (so going thin socks might be best).

    BOTH :D .... really depends on your typical usage rate.. assuming that both will be for casual weekend use. The Onix has a bit more pop because of the midsole and different upper panels both in color and materials used. The V2's on the other hand seems to be more muted in comparison to the 4D's, although chunkier in style.

    Onix - catches more attention, comfort is meh, sleeker, more expensive.. somewhat harder to get than the V2's
    Tephra - Dad shoe vibes, hella comfy, less expensive than the Onix (but is still expensive at 300$ retail).. a little less "out there" in terms of CW

    So yeah, just get both.. leave one pair in the car and then one on your feet.. then just change as you feel like it :p

    ^ 700V2s are great and comfy especially if you have wide feet.

    A 700V2 Vanta would be a good all around shoe

    Hello! Any recommended seller here in PH selling a reasonably-priced House Stark Ultraboost? I saw one at FB Marketplace but it sells for 11k and do not know well the seller.

    Thanks in advance!

    Agree with Sheryl that it was difficult to get these online during release day.. lining up and inserting yourself in the chaos at Adidas BGC gives you better chances (my cousin and his friends all got their pairs).

    The resell wave has gone down as it usually does after a week or so (usually after most people get their online pairs delivered and the market gets saturated with folks reselling their pairs). If you really want to bite the bullet, I’ve seen pairs going for 18k (5k above srp) via facebook sneaker groups. So there is a chance to still grab a pair.. would suggest though that you get it here and not via StockX since they charge higher since this was a regional exclusive release.

    Got an offer from a reseller for 16,500. Still asking around if there are others. Maybe will try to bring it down to 16,000, and then bite the bullet. Thanks!
