    Yeah I know, I was talking about jackets strictly in that post in regards to duties. Excelsior still has these black/volt vapors for y'all sz 9+ Edit: Also FSR at Goodhood store Edit2: Some sizes at antonia Edit3: Darkside, Bodega, St.Alfred all in stock as of posting
  2. Acronym.

    They use flat rate shipping (€45 for everything - doesn't matter if your $1800 jacket weighs 4 micrograms, it'll cost the same as shipping heavy ass shoes). Excluding VAT they charge €20 above retail. Why? Because it's Acronym, their MO is taxing the fuck out of the customers. Let's not forget the duties that we also have to pay.

    If you're from t he US, there's absolutely no reason to buy these vapors from acrnm. Unless you're #teamearly and want the dark stucco colorway. Black/Volt/Black releases in less than 24 hours and I'll be sure to buy it for $225 flat instead of $305. But since we're all overpaying for the jackets, I guess 251.61 € is chump change. For those that want to save some cash and prefer retail price ($225 which equates to 184.30 €), SNS just restocked a FSR: https://www.sneakersnstuff.com/en/product/31867/nike-air-vapormax-fk-moc-x-acronym

    Grats whoever copped. I already have one so I passed. Edit: It was size S
  5. Acronym.

    It's three colorways, just like the 2016 drop.

    Just the color, expect it to be at NikeLab and all tier 0 swoosh accounts by the end of this year and of course acrnm.com. If you guys got Mars Yards, this shoe will be a breeze to get.

    Passing on those Vapormaxes, getting this instead:

    Super fast shipping though

    USA, this has happened quite often for the past decade that I've been shopping with Acronym. Prior to 2015, the de minimis value was only $200 so you had to pay duties for pretty much everything from them. Yep, sometimes I know beforehand that they won't release it as it's explicitly said in the tracking screen... other times it's not and they just deliver the package to you and wait for the collection notice. On a side note, one of my close buddies is moving to HK so if ever Acronym comes out with a powerhouse of a season (I'm talking at least 6+ items to purchase), I'll just have Acronym ship all that shit to him. Not going to bother dealing with UPS just because some dude in the Czech Republic is too lazy to identify the correct recreational performance outerwear HTS classification. It's sick, it got me kinda hyped for SS18 to be honest lol

    Did you ever get invoiced by UPS for the j28/p25h? Last time I bought from Acronym and this happened, UPS sent me a letter to collect unpaid duties.

    Correct, DS and CH have are coated with proprietary technology (ecorepel, coldblack, 3XDRY, and NanoSphere) already so you do not want to re-proof with off-shelf DWR products. As far as Stotz goes, @FlavourTwist emailed ETA directly regarding his S-J11 and the owner has 3 options: use nik wax cotton proof wash-in use nik wax spray on repellent (the version for cotton fabrics I suppose) professional dry cleaning plus proofing/coating method' He ended up washing the jacket by hand with fairly hot water and without chemicals, hung and when almost dry, sprayed on the mentioned cotton proofing and spot-cleaned with natural soap. Gore-Tex is fairly straightforward and simple.

    Sarcasm is a little hard to see on text

    Guys, don't let this restock distract you from the fact that Errolson was in a Porsche ad. Clearly, all new Acronym products now carry the "VIP Luxury Fee"... their older products lacked that badge, hence why even the classically more expensive Gore-Tex variants were bargains compared to these new Acronym "Ballers-only" pieces. It was only a matter of time before I gave in. 2018 is the year I turn into an amputee, maybe single kidney too.

    J61-GT in size S restocked at approximately: Since ACRNM removes prices, this might be helpful for some: And no, I didn't buy it. It sold out within seconds though.
