Anybody know if Nike might be a dick and reject these shoes when I make a hole in them because of the ripped off rubber from their awful quality control?
Nah, I'm 95% sure it's still acceptable as long as it looks like torn rubber and NOT knife marks or something. I had a similar situation with my barricades but Adidas still took them so I would say you're fine. If it bugs you they may be rejected, you can maybe write a note explaining the quality of the rubber or call in advance and ask?
