I felt the same way when I saw the 8ARs. The color is alright, and the rips are convincing enough to work, but I just didn't feel that there was a special "Diesel Touch" that warranted anything more than about $100 or so. They were cool, but just didn't leave a strong impression on me.
The 72H looked awful. The color reminded me of an abused 89J after too many runs in the laundry. The lower calf area had some decent "acid-ish" color, but the rest looked very flat and dull.
I was hoping to find a stray pair of 71Js Zathans hiding out, but no luck. The clerk told me that on two occasions some Japanese guy came in and bought 8 pairs all at once! I should have bought 'em when I had the chance a few months back if for no reason but to flip 'em.
