I got my green nubucks yesterday as well, same as Stylz.
These didn't have stock photos in the bay, they were pics taken by the seller. They are old stock, probably dead by now (Nov. 2005) so my guess is he buys up all the stores old stock in bulk and sells it on.
Our concerns were with the more recent limited kicks, like the adicolors, becuase he's using stock photos for these and we're guessing that he may be importing them for China or somewhere similare (home of the fake adidas) and then shipping them on.
I think it's all a matter of judgement. If it's a real photo and they seem legit, go for it. But if the seller users stock photos, always ask for real ones if your not sure. Very Happy

I've just been reading through this whole thread and you guys probably know more than me regarding fakes, but why buy from this seller if you have any doubts.
I wouldn't tend to trust ebayer's with random stock photographs and long shipping feedback.
Don't encourage the fakers!
Good point mate but I didn't have any doubt about the pairs with proper photos it's just the pairs with stock pics like 'phile said.
Without actual pics of his adicolors it would be unfair to definitively claim he still sells fakes when the last proof I had was a year ago.
In general though, if in doubt, it's usually better to shop elsewhere.

everybody....

Yesterday I got mine 4 pair from this guy in the mail They where all authentic. I also got one pair of P6 and a pair of R5 and they where 150% authentic.. No B-products either as I could not find any flaws on any of them. My only complain about this guy is his communication and the long shipping time (3 weeks).... But that is worth it, since he has absolut the lowest prices on ebay on the adicolor models... I paied £19 for the R5 and I have to say, I compared them to my old pair that I bought from footlocker and they are identical.. NO flaws

It is nice to honor genuin sellers also

One more thing... He is shipping from US, he is US seller, not UK although he is advertising on ebay.uk...

Also, he did tell me that the shipping was about 3 weeks, so I cant really complain about the shipping time either

NO, these was not chinees shoes.. They where shipped from US and they where absolutly genuin.. I do really inform you about that long shipping time, I dont know why that is but at that price I dont have anything against waiting another week...

I would in fact honor this guy a litle and tell you all that mine 4 pairs, 1 pair of gazelle, 1 pair of back/read/white superstar, one pair of R5 and in fact 2 pairs of P6 all was in 100% condition..

I ordered a pair of pat.leather SS from him and they took 3-4 weeks to arrive too, but I checked the post stamp and they were posted the day after I paid him, so either the post in his area is extremely slow or they got delayed in customs - or maybe both...LOL...

I recently bought another pair of SS (surprise surprise) and they took almost 3 weeks to arrive, but I had a tracking number for those and I could see it took them 2 days to get to Denmark (from the US) and then two and a half weeks to get through f*cking customs!!! And to top that off the customs fees were almost as much as the original price I paid!!!GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Superstars are indeed super...

I'm still waiting for a pair from 7th July, he has give me a USPS tracking number but the website just shows it posted on 9th July, with no details after this.. Sad

The guy seems pretty genuine from recent posts, however there seems to be a recuring instance of long postage delays.

Just received BL6 Bronx from this guy, after roughly a week~ to Europe, fast.
I did check them by this guide:

Well, they are as original as they can get.
Feel and smell like originals as well.

Do you think alan mayer has earnt his release from the fake sellers list?
Seems wrong to have him there with so many of us buying up his kicks with no ill reports.

He sells genuine shoes, but they may take a while to arrive and they will turn up in the Adidas box wrapped in packing tape. I dont think he should be on the list.

Yeah, he seems ok, just fucks up the packaging thats all! But i'm sure we can get him to sort this out. Can't cost more than a couple of bucks to get another box to put the original in (USPS even make shoe-box sized parcel boxes specifically for this)
