I might have to check this place out (among others) when I visit New
York for the first time in August. Not sure I'll come back with any
shoes though, since resellers there are asking top dollar, I'm sure.

Nevermind, Etonic pushed back the release of Olajuwon's shoes. Sometime this summer.

Where are the Olajuwon's by Etonic? Isn't etonic re-releasing those on the 15th, or is it not worth it to you to add to the list?
@flockaveli Aren't Roshes really more for casual wear anyway? I wouldn't think you'd really ball in these.

I can understand why they do this, I'm pretty sure it's so they won't have too much traffic which caused the technical difficulties on the initial date of the restock (even though I heard it did crash and people lost items from their cart).
Good strategy for NIKE, but dammit, HAVE A STRONGER SYSTEM THAT CAN HANDLE THE TRAFFIC AND LET US KNOW THE TIME AND DATE AHEAD OF TIME... I HAVE A LIFE, I CAN'T SIT AND WATCH TWITTER EVERY SECOND OF THE DAY!

@Lurker111 Look, everyone had their faults... Harden doesnt play defense, hasn't shown up as the superstar he should be, and is starting to cry like a baby. Also, as you said, not getting consistent play from role players. BUT... I still have to give this loss to Lin, because he turned the ball over in critical times. Once in regulation, when we had the lead with only 18 seconds left and caused the 3 from Mo Williams... and another in overtime when the game was still close and caused a run for the Blazers.
There was ALSO, the period in the 4th when we had a significant lead (like 7 or so) and he had 2 or 3 possessions, where held the damn ball forever before he made a move, causing the player he passes it to, to only have a few seconds to create a shot.
I'm sorry, but if that doesn't show you that he lost the game for us, I don't know what will.
Lin was the ****ing reason we lost game 4 to the Blazers. I'm done with him.
Wait, wait, wait... If the contest starts tomorrow, why are we entering our teams for tonight's game?

Sooooo, SOME of the shoes will have a full run of sizes, huh? Hmmmmm...
@khiw23 like a Hack, Plug-in, or software that Allows people to put the shoes into their shopping cart faster than you can click a mouse or enter on your keyboard. Again, there's gotta be a better way!!!
yup, but I'm still waking up trying
good luck with trying to get 2 different pairs, let alone 1
And we're all gonna get up early in the morning, knowing we won't have a chance to get the shoes cause of all the bots. GOTTA be a better way!
@Jon Rodriguez Is Rueben Randle a good pick up in fantasy football? I need a backup replacement for Chris Givens. I know this is a sneaker site, but I had to ask. hahaha
9 months, 3 weeks ago on Victor Cruz Talks About His Favorite Air Jordan
I almost finally got these shoes on eBay. Reseller's price, but the lowest price ive seen. Everything about the shoe was right on, even asked the girl to take pictures to make sure they weren't fake. But the more research I did, the more I saw that these fakes look so real, I got scared. I notice the black lines of the elephant print looked thicker than the pictures I've seen on here and other sites. I had to ask for a refund. Plus the way she was able to get another size for me after she sold out, seemed fishy.
I hope I never find out that they are actually authentic. I'd be killing myself. Want these shoes so bad.
These are nice. Hoping the Volts show up to the outlet or go down in price even more. Maybe these get slept on as well.

I wonder, with the tougher materials, will these be as comfortable as the original Roshes that have all mesh (or whatever material they originally used).

@obiz9NO! It's even better, looking exactly the way it did in the 80's. Just like the Royal's and Black Toe's.
1 year ago on Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG – Black – Red
@greghall024 @Lusinmader Houston. I think I'm too old to be standing in line for shoes. Even for shoes like these, shoes I've really wanted. I guess you would call them my "Grails". I will however sign up for a raffle, or wake up in the comfort of my home and TRY (without much luck) to get them online.
Where are YOU at?
Which AJ1's are you talking about though? The white/red/black 1s weren't true retros, with no Nike air on the tongue, and had the jumpman on the heel, so I was able to get a pair late that morning, no lines. But the Royal's, black toes, and even these shadows, were hard to get. I'm gonna try, but I'll probably be disappointed. Feel too old to fall in line, hope there's a raffle in stores, online release, or even better a raffle for online.
I bet I miss out on these too
I hope this doesn't hurt the chances of a true retro release of the Black/Red Jordan 1's this year.

I want these. But I think these will go on sale. Still kills me that I missed out on the infrared AND laser blue 90's that were on sale for $65 at the Nike outlet a couple of years ago!

I really want these, but I have to really think about getting these now. Not so sure about the "yellowing".
1 year, 2 months ago on Air Jordan III ’88 Retro – Restock Release Info
@El Compa Again, why is it a problem for people to get what they want? Even if they never saw Jordan play, who cares that these kids want it. They love sneaks, and maybe love the way J's look, so let them get what they want.
As for me, I did grow up watching Jordan play. I was in high school when he won the first 3 (then MY ROCKETS won the next 2), and of course saw the next 3 after that.
BUT, I've recently just started to buy sneakers in my 30's, so I'm catching up on my own collection. So, you're saying I shouldn't go after the shoes I want because I didn't get them when I was in High School?
Why do some of you so called "Real" Sneakerheads say these things? Makes no sense.
@bigga23 I feel ya... I'm a huge Jordan 1 Retro fan myself
@Foots230 So, If I have a Nike Gift Card, I should just forget about it, and not use it for the sake of time?
Thanks! I've already had an account at all these sites, ready to go. But even after that, I always feel like I have to read through and check that all the information is right, But I guess I can do that before hand. Here's the thing, I have a NIke GIft Card, and that would take time to put that in, because I can't add that to my account. SHould I just forget about trying to use that and just pay full price?
@SkilledHooper82 Yeah, it's actually safer that way. Sadly that's how it has to be.
@newsouth912 @_iandeleon_ How long does it usually take before it starts to yellow? I might have to think about this first, before I jump on it.
Anyone know if this edition of 3's will "yellow" on the back tab like previous versions?
@Just_A_Person Nah, I like these 3's. But Yeah, I'd like to see the Royal 1's restocked too. But those were considered "Limited". Do they restock "Limited" releases?
Help me out here. How do you all order online? Do you choose 1 site and hope for the best? Or do you try opening all stores online, at the same time, using your laptop, desktop, phone and tablet to try to get them? Just want to know how you guys try to get them online and if it's really that difficult to get them the minute it releases.
Is it usually hard to even add your size to the cart? Once you get it in the cart, is there a chance you can lose it while you're trying to make sure your payment and shipping is straight?
Need the advise, please. Thanks!
This is how it should be done, NIKE! I guess I get it now...
All OG's are "Vintaged" and All Retros are done "Like New". DITCH the OG's and STICK to the Retros!
1 year, 3 months ago on Nike Air Vortex Retro “Gym Red”
They're not trash, but making them new is 100 times better looking than making them look vintage. It's just not for me (and not for a lot of people who have commented about the OG's fake wear and tear). The Blazers would look 100 times better brand new.
Nike would've had my $200 for these and the original Red ones they released earlier this year (even with the red air bubble), if they were Retroed correctly and not OGed like they were.

Make'em BRAND NEW, Nike! Would've bought these, if it weren't for the FAKE "wear and tear"! That's why these "vintage" OG's don't sell as well as the TRUE RETROS.
Hating the OG version. QUIT MAKING SHOES LOOK OLD!

Now I know you're not reading. I said I've ALWAYS liked sneakers, just didn't want to spend the money (or for the most part didn't HAVE the money to spend) on them. What about those who couldnt afford them when theu were kids, but can afford them now... so they're ruining "the game" too? And I do think @JFresh_136 is pretty much saying your statement is ridiculous. Like, what does it matter WHEN someone decides to like something? Did it not make you feel better that I owned a pair AJ4's in the 4th grade? What about the pair of suede pumas I had in the 9th grade, does that make me more "legit"?
My bad, all who has started to like or buy sneakers SINCE BIRTH are real, and those who didn't should be banned from the sneaker world.
You make no sense...
1 year, 3 months ago on What Do You Think?: Random Restocks
Wow, where is all of this coming from? You act like you know me or something. Recapturing my youth? Wanting the attention kids are getting from them? Your mind is twisted man. You couldn't be way more off.
How about, I'm buying them just because I like them? Did you ever think about that?
It's like JFresh_136 is saying, is there some rule that "TRUE" sneakerheads have to buy shoes from birth to me accepted? I owned a pair of 4's once when I was in 4th grade does that count?
Hahaha... Listen, I'm not going through a mid-life crisis. I'm just a guy whose interest in sneakers got sparked a little more because of some air max 1's that I wanted, and now it's admittedly gotten out of control, but I like it. What's wrong with that?
I'm not a leader? Cuz I got into this shoe thing late? Um, that makes no sense, but ok...
I've always liked sneakers. Just didn't really get that deep into them or want to spend the money for them, till I discovered the original Air Max 1 colorways a couple of years ago. Then it just blew up from there.
Liking the Neon, maybe that one with the orange in it too. I like them all.

I'm a 35 year-old newbie to the shoe game. I saw this tweet when I got home from work and thought "Eh, these are probably the more recent shoes they've released... they can't possibly have the Jordan Retro 3's restocked".
Little did I know, I could've gotten me a pair. Lesson Learned. (Tear runs down my face)
