Thanks for making this, I started looking for these shoes the other day but they seem a bit hard to find now

A word of warning: even if you find brand new, still in box G-Units, they're still going to be 15+ years old. Most sneakers aren't made with materials meant to last that long. So be prepared for the possibility that the glue used on the sole may no longer be great, or the cloth fabric may be weaker, etc. I've had a few of my recent pairs fall apart surprisingly quickly, and I think it's due to the age of the materials. I still think it's worth using Gs if you can find them, but mentally prepare yourself to get them professionally reglued or repaired if the materials don't hold up.
