They're too close to the metallic V's, but without the good parts of those V's. If I'm gonna buy a blacked out J, it's gotta be BLACKED. THE FUCK. OUT. I'm talkin black "23", black/charcoal clear sole (Like Dixon Syder said), black tongue, black jumpman (maybe leave the mesh how it is, idk). Black them bitches out like they did those X's back in the day. While I'm always supportive of JB throwing out new colorways, this one looks lazy and incomplete. Has potential though. Maybe go with some nubuck uppers or something, make it real classy and quality.
