Just arrived and they are Carraaazzzyyyy!!! Shiny patent leather on the back and a sorta snake skin leather on the toebox. Reflctive material on the tongue and the "N" logo. Plus I picked up the exclusive Concepts T. The Back Says "since "96" and the tongue of the kicks are embroidered with the greek symbols for 1996. A very nice shoe and Biggup to the cats at Concepts for being so easy to work with over the phone!
