UPDATE: Info from Mental Therapy :
1. The haymarket dunk high sample is 100% authentic. See the tag. I post clear tag picture for this reason.
2. The M.O.B. lace jewel comes with the right shoe since the first day. Some prototype samples have special details added ONLY on the right shoe.
Also I apologize to M.O.B. owner if this shoes bring you any trouble. However I emailed you through your website and your blog 2 weeks ago and asked for your opinion before I post this up, but you never write back... Rest of story after the jump..
I have to clarify AGAIN that this sample dunk is 100% authentic.
After reading the MOB blog, I immediately contact Leah who is the owner of MOB. After some talk, our conclusion is that the shoes are authentic, but they are not designed by MOB.
According to her:
Those were samples the Nike team made for themselves knowing it could never get past corporate…someone found them and put the MOB hardware from my original dunk on them. End of story.
Therefore I already asked NSB mods to remove all MOB-related words and pictures in the thread. I also asked Leah to edit her blog, I hope she will do that.
NSB is my favorite sneaker forum and one of the most professional sneaker forums in the world, I am not that stupid to post a fake shoe here. I even show a damn clear tag picture and if some people still think they are fake, then I have nothing else to say to them.
I feel sorry to Leah about this and I tried my best to explain and apologize to her and I think she accepts my apology and I think we are fine now.
I feel sorry to NSB for the whole thing.
Lastly, I post my personal sample collections here JUST FOR SHAING PURPOSE with you guys. It is really sad to see it turns out like that. It seems that some people can never understand how much work and how much effort we sample collectors do in order to get a pair of sample shoe.
