  1. Acronym.

    There's a great deal of effort and money required to make quality shoes and risk involved as well. What if it fails? Not easy to take for a small company. I'm sure acronym wouldn't have done shoes at all if Nike didn't approach them to do the LF1. Nike has it all set up already. I also doubt that Errolson Hugh or acronym made the decision to change SISP from name giving 'shadow project' style and the PARSEQ grid to the current 'weird' SI mainline extension that SISP feels like. Pure speculation, but it appears to be more about brand image of SI and driven by SI. The acr VM is not bad. For a spring/summer shoe it's fine. It feels a bit forced though. Nike will have asked acronym to do a Vapormax, possibly with all kinds of restrictions in production. The design is still radical and dividing the crown, maybe because the Vapormax already does that by itself, which could be exactly wanted to achieve and enjoy. The marketing is great too. All in all I think that one's a win for them whether one likes it or not. On the business side, there's responsibilities to fulfill and while a comparatively small customer base may have paved the way to more, keeping a course just to please a small circle of people is unreasonable. favorite band's old albums were way better than their new ones
  2. Acronym.

    J62 holding up nicely, also used with 3a regularly. Giving how strangely fragile it feels to the touch and how thin it is, that's a bit surprising. I wouldn't recommend scraping along a rough wall, running into sharp corners or objects or falling with your bike wearing it. Edit: what the material will do definitely is showing tiny creases all over the place, even if it's new. They're smoothed out with pressure/support applied, but looking closely it's a mix of wrinkly and smooth with a dull sheen with the pattern of the base fabric occasionally showing through in stripes if it's sitting in a specific way.

    got that ankle scraping issue with LF1 tts. Take @danii's advice and try an insole. Might get a little tight at first, but the upper is more likely to stretch than the sides around the ankle giving in.

    scroll up a few. It isn't, only body-facing inside. @danii wrote it's VX42/rugged x-pac, so that reflective coating inside should be a PET film. It feels pretty sturdy.

    Just beat me to it. For anyone wondering, the inside of the main compartment isn't lined, also showing the back of the X-PAC like the front pockets on these pictures. Interior body-facing side has floating lining in black.

    The airpod's case itself uses magnets to hold them in place. Force lock works fine with them, but any abrupt movement is likely to shake them off (jumping, impact while running). It's more a help for when you're just standing or walking slowly, for example like taking them out at a store or when you normally may take one or both out when talking to someone.
