Replica price at review: 320 USD
Hello this is my in-depth review for the yeezy 2 solar red from H3ln/Perfectkcks. I hope you like it.
I just talked through email, placed an order on website, paid with Western Union, and mentioned that I was using the TD discount when the first batch of 350's came out. So my total amount i sent over was 235 USD, but with a fee I paid 260 USD. Overall the communication came around 10PM - 12AM EST as it was day for China at that time.
I ordered the 16th of June. Got QC pictures 4 days later, as mentioned in her emails. Receives tracking yesterday, and got delivered today June 22nd. It came double boxed in a white box with the correct nike box. Inside the box there was two yeezy boost keychains and a fake receipt.
Pictures do not do this shoe justice. I know that's been said a lot, but these shoes are really special. The toebox is finally not too large, but it is a tad squared off. The tongue comes up a little short, but still looks sick. Overall the shape is much better than the older y2 reps. Let me tell you about the scales. Oh boy these scales actually come out and feel handcut. They do feel great, but I have two problems. On the inside of one of the shoes, the scales are angled, and also, the scales are a little bit too ashy. I'm looking to fix this maybe with a dab of baby oil or another fix. (If you know anything about this, let me know!!). The tongue is hella good, just needs to be slightly higher. The code is correct on the inside of the shoe. The size tag is correct, but it shouldn't be glued in to look like its part of the sock liner. In retails its just paper, and it even falls off sometimes. The insole is correct. It came with 4 gold lace tips and 4 gun metal tips. The aglets underneath are golden now and show the tip of the black shoe lace aglet, but it's not the correct yeezy 2 aglet. Bottoms do glow in the dark, and they glow HARD. I'll post a pic soon of the glow.
Sizing and Comfort
They fit TTS, and they are really comfortable. Not as comfortable as my ultra boost, but the leather insole and the sock liner really make it feel like a top quality shoe. The back of the shoe is very sturdy, which I like.
I would say these shoes aren't worth the price of 320 USD like on H3ln's or PK's site. I only bought because I was able to use the discount from buying the TD earlier.
But I would like to say this. I would rather spend this 320 USD, if I had to, instead of paying resale for these. It's hard to find Yeezy 2 nowadays, and this purchase has made me happy.
9/10 would shop again. -1 bc price lol.
