    Here they are. I couldn't be more happy with the way they came out. A little glue here and there, but hey, it's not mass production, it's custom

    Here is the way it looked online, and the pics:
    Give me your thoughts!

    I say just put yellow laces on and you could be part of one of the largest food corporations in the world.

    I like them, too. But, what's up with "a little glue here and there". "Custom" should not equate to home-made. So, Chinese final QC check is better than MiAdidas?

    I like the look, I think gasolina would b the only person to associate your shoes with ronald mcdonald.

    @gasolina, you should probably lay off the big macs if thats the first thing that comes to mind. ;)

    Watch Supersize Me...that **** can kill you.

    It's a little residue around the edges of the black stripes, and a little around the edge where the sewn on parts are. It's nothing much, and I guess I can kinda understand that it's not so percise when custom-made, but I guess it's kinda dissapointing from a "major brand." Hold on lemme see if I can take a pic or two.

    I don't know how well you can see it, but it's just a little messy residue on the edges. Nothing major, just a little annoying visually. I'll be really upset if the stripes start coming off tho :???:

    I can really only judge from wearing around house so far, but they seem more comfy and padded, while lighter. Fitwise, definately on the snug side. Not so much where it is unwearable, but If you are inbetween sizes, with this shoe, get the larger size.

    I'll let you know how they play soon.

    We don't have Mcdonalds here were I live. I haven't had a quarter pounder since January. Imagine my pain.

    Let me make it up, I think your shoe looks like a badass ferrari.

    What kind of insole did you use for the shoes? I know you had to choose from comfort or clima. Interested to know what you picked and how they'd look/feel like.

    The insole was the comfort, and it looks more padded than the regular one in the Vs, there is a oval bump in the heel part right in the middle. Feels comfy.

    I have to say Gasolina's reply cracked me up, nothing wrong with having a sense of humor.

    I too have a pair on order from miAdidas, how long did it take to get yours? I would be curious to see what shirt/shorts you wear with the shoes to see how the whole ensemble looks.

    Lets see... I ordered mine may 10, and it just came today, June 3rd.

    As for outfit, I have a black pair of nike shorts with a red stripe down the side, and a red nike shirt with a black stripe down the side. Should look pretty sick... I'll post a pic as soon as I can.

    I liked the deeper red in the picture as opposed to the actual red. Still, not bad though.

    How bad was your glue problem? Was there any residue around the edges where things had been put on/glued together?

    Mine finally arrived also. I know it looks a lot like the new color way they just released, just my luck they release it after I made my own.

    These came today, only 2 weeks to the day after ordering! I like the way they turned out except for the Cincinnati Bearcats logo is a lot smaller than represented when building the shoe on miadidas and looks pretty cheesy. They fit great; I recommend getting the "comfort package"-extra heel and collar padding, feels good!

    I can definitely afford to buy those clown shoes.Money has nothing to do with it, i go through 4 pairs of barricade 5's a year.

    You say i am jealous, not at all.Some of these shoes look like clown bowling shoes on steroids.It is obvious that some people need to get attention with their obnoxious tennis shoes.
