If you bought the Stealth 15s, Nike owes you one.
Earlier this month Nike released a "remastered" version of the "Stealth" Air Jordan 15 which was advertised as featuring a full-grain leather upper as well as Zoom Air units in the forefoot AND heel just like the original.
Many people who bought the retro Stealth 15s probably couldn't tell if their shoes had Zoom Air technology in the heel, forefoot or none at all, but one savvy sneakerhead took apart his shoes and revealed that the product was not as advertised.
Instagram user @Nightwing2303 shared a photograph of the exposed sole unit, revealing that the Zoom Air bag was only in present in the heel and not the forefoot.
He called out Nike for it and they not only changed the description of their product but, according to SoleCollector, offered anyone who bought the "Stealth" Air Jordan 15s a 25% discount on the next item purchased through Nike.com.
@jumpman23 -- false advertising at its finest? Where'd that forefoot Zoom Air unit go? This is what you call remastered? Bad enough you call that synthetic leather full grain but then you take the tech out... SMH. If you paid $190 for these shells of a shoe that were made to look like the OG Air Jordan XV I'd get my money back if I were you. #WearTesters #NightwingKnows
Thank you, @nike , for fixing the item description on the Air Jordan 15 Retro. Still a shame to see a brand that I love and am so passionate about consistently disregard their own heritage & technology while claiming that's what the brand is about. It would be nice if we could get proper item descriptions from now on stating exactly what we're paying for. I'd like to know when tech is removed BEFORE I spend my money. Thanks for listening. #NightwingKnows #WearTesters
