    Just picked these up from the post office.

    Complete set in great condition.

    Thought I had a great deal when I checked the serial but when I took close-ups I could see another faint serial number under the X-Metal logo.

    Looking at the box, could it be that they are 3rd gen? (according to o-review there was only 1st & 2nd gen). The bottom line shows the SKU followed by B01881. The fact that the box label has a barcode maybe suggests that they are later?

    Perhaps the gurus could shed some light?

    Also picked this up at the same time

    i guess this is just painted, originally R1 X Metal colorway, then laser etched to match the box's serial. Still not sure but just my guess

    thanks for all your replies.

    they are definitely not painted!!! what paint matches a plasma finnish?!! perhaps the previous owner switched the lenses from black to fire so that they matched the box?

    I bet they had a bunch of nose bridges made and just decided to make some of them other colorways.

    No offense meant brother, again like what ive said iam not sure. I just based my observation to your comment that there is a faint serial below the x metal logo. the new serial is located way below the x metal logo which ive only seen on R1 jordans with 4 digit serial. Also if the original lens was black iridium then it is an X metal colorway,if it came with gold iridium then it is Titanium, then lastly fire iridium for plasma.

    This is one sample of bead blasted R1 plasma, if you'll look closely the original serial was preserved (Titanium). Credit goes to the owner of the pic
