Everyone is scared of change. The fact that states want to secede after a black dude promised them change 4 years ago is the best example we’ve got. It’s universal but understandable.
Especially in terms of product; if it’s worked so well for you, why would you want it to be discontinued? That seems to be everyone’s concern with the release of the new G6. Everyone is hyped for it, but have been wondering what’s going to happen to their beloved G-Code!!!. Well, we’re going to break some hearts because the G-Code!!! is going to be discontinued after spring of 2013. The summer ’13 catalog appears to only feature the new Reynolds shoe and the G6.
The G-Code!!!’s popularity has been recognized worldwide because of its functionality & durability, but the G6 will soon take its place. Being one of the few people to receive their G6s before the general public, we’ve got to say that you should be embracing it. The G-Code!!! is one of our favorite shoes of all time but, in all honesty, once you lace up the G6, you’ll move on. In comparison, the G6 is much slimmer, more flexible, carries the same G-Code!!! genetics and is light as fuck. The only thing we’re still trying to figure out is how durable the G6 is compared to the G-Code!!!. Personally, the puffy tongue was one of our favorite features. Are we saying RIP to the last puffy tongue shoe on the market…?
All puffy tongues aside, we’ll try to make the grieving process a little easier by explaining the differences between the two.
|As the result of padding, heavier||Lighter|
|More paneled padding||Less padding, making it flexible|
|Shortened height of the toe||Toe is slightly taller|
|Prone to stiffening in the toe||Durable & deep outsole|
|Herringbone outsole||Non-Slip grip triangle tread|
For all the reasons above & more, you’ll understand why the G6 is one of the most highly anticipated shoes of 2012-13. Aside from its remarkable upgrade, the colorways coming out in 2013 do not disappoint. With the differences listed, the only thing being carried over from G-Code!!! to the G6 is the reinforced toe. Although because the toe is taller, expect a better & stronger flick along with some added durability.
At this point, you have to buckle to your knees and admit that the G6 is going to kill it. There’s substantial evidence backing it & we also took the liberty of sharing some of the most high tech features about it. The slideshow below was a part of the media presentation for our eyes only, but we snagged some pics and want to show you guys what else is going on in the G6. There are even more details that aren’t even comparable to the G-Code.
