Less beef salads and more flower bringing.
You don't need to remaster a classic you just need to stop putting out whack ass CW's and letting family of the brand create weak collab's. While on hiatus I hope they look at the works of Dank Customs and JP Customs as inspiration.

@Jopersony You're advertising in the wrong space. Nobody here wants your fake shoes.
@jamescav9 It's the Chinese rep sites that used to have YouTube channels etc. Business is so bad now they've resorted to advertising on sneaker blogs and finding people on linkedin. Pathetic.
Uhm, not only NYC mates. These packs almost always hail London as well.

1 week, 3 days ago on Nike Air Huarache “Love/Hate” Pack – Release Date
@poisoned___WELL I know right? I'll still happily pay that extra $10 though vs having to pick them up from the UK for between $138-$180 shipped.
@OFFICIALESKE @sneakernews @nikestore They sure did but most of us struck out badly because the one spot they did release at that I'm aware of only had two sizes left in each colorway by the time they went online via a FB link. The in store first flex kills it for everyone that doesn't live in that country or state.
So you are correct sir but props to Nike that they're giving us a better chance to scoop these up online stateside. Now I just hope they continue their fight against bots and early links because if the huaraches continue to be a popular shoe upon being available in the US again it will only be a matter of time before resellers realize they've found another meal ticket.
Can't wait till this Friday. My artwork or pictures on sneakers? Yes please!

@nolunch2605 Thanks my dude! Appreciate that. These are actual metrics the companies and vendors I work with use to measure brand success, loyalty etc. Despite the comment by @Facsimile I graduated college over 17yrs ago and was doing professional client work before graduating.
Some people are just bitter instead of asking how can I make $120/hr doing what you do. Pay them no mind.
1 week, 5 days ago on Air Jordan 6 “First Championship” Will Not Release
@Facsimile @nolunch2605 @FutureTomorrow_ Your comment would make sense if these were not actual metrics companies use each and every day to measure and guide the success of their marketing and brand efforts. So on several levels all you've done is shown you're very uneducated.
This is what I went to college for. I'm 39yrs old, have been doing this for over 17yrs and I am college educated. Please, remind us what it is you actually do for a living?
@nolunch2605 - this is the part where he doesn't respond because most likely I'm somehow responsible for his police record and job at McDonald's.
@JibreelOBannon Funny I was thinking the same thing. The metrics would probably be "sentiment" and "social" and "community" "engagement". I'm sure they were high. Correlate those against specific buying patterns and user behavior and you now have the formula to better understand the numbers you should put into production.
@Eccroids There are different kinds of special projects fam. You can't really compare these to the Moon Landing as those were to commemorate a specific achievement.
I will give you one thing. Anything that comes from Nike and JB should be taken with a grain of salt. Up until the night of the Hyperpunch release they swore they didn't have any release info. They're always doing this though so nothing new.
@Old_Man_Willis @NIKEMINDED @sneakernews Let me guess...did they say it was a US release only? And if memory serves correct these were supposed to be super limited right? I'm interested to hear your answer because I remember UBIQ telling me on the phone that the Dirty Martini's was a US release only. We all know how that went. Joints were sitting at many UK stores and were easy pickups.
After of course I bought mine from a reseller based on UBIQ's misinformation.

2 weeks ago on The Rarest Version of the Kid Robot x Nike Air Max 1 is on eBay
@Amarefan1 I agree with you and it's one of the few statements in this article I'm not in agreement with. I remember going back and forth with some dude over the Gamma blue 11's because he just couldn't seem to comprehend some people just don't like a shoe because of a CW or particular design. Has nothing to do with not liking it because it makes a person look cool.
Not sure why it's hard for some people to understand that others just have a strong sense of individuality and don't need to wear what everyone else is wearing. To me it's actually a huge turn off.
2 weeks ago on 10 Reasons Why Sneakerheads Have Forgotten New Air Jordans After 1998
@kshaun12 @FutureTomorrow_ @JMBasquiat Moral of my long winded tale? Call your local HOH/Foot Locker or Champs Sports before paying a reseller on eBay if you're still looking for these. It might vary from state to state though as we already know.
I paid like $150 because I used a $20 VIP reward. On eBay dudes want like $199.99 - $240 + and I'm pretty certain I saw quite a few that were fake. SMH.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Air Jordan 3 “Shark, Alligator, & Kangaroo” by JBF Customs
@kshaun12 @FutureTomorrow_ @JMBasquiat My exact words yesterday: "I know this might be a stretch but do you have any Wolf Grey 3's left? 10.5 or 11?" Footlocker employee: "Oh yeah, I got like 2 10.5's and 3 11's let me double check. If I have them bring you the 10.5?" Me: "Yes Please. Thanks"
He came back with a 10.5. The day they released I strolled into the mall and went in there for some Huaraches. It was already after 1:30pm. Started chopping it up with a guy I know and he told me they had a full size run and he could sell me more than 2 because the release was a flop. They weren't selling and the one per customer was tossed out the window.
Further down the hall in that mall if you told me they were also sitting at Champs Sports I would believe you because when I went there they also had a full size run.
HOH/Foot Locker - Garden State Plaza, Paramus, NJ 07652
Champs Sports -

@JMBasquiat @FutureTomorrow_ I would check instagram and search for hashtags like #customkicks etc. There are so many talented people on there from established customizers like JBF to guys just starting off and everything in between.
@JMBasquiat or you could make them out of the Jordan 3 wolf greys sitting at stores. That's the only reason why I bought a pair today. After I saw what Optimus did to his I was like I'm def going in on these.
@poisoned___WELL I heard a rumor we are just this week but still waiting for confirmation on where the person got the news from. With summer almost over and brands having already moved into early fall/late fall CW's I can't see it but given what we have been graced with this year who knows?

@greghall024 I'm sure you'll be able to find them for $52 - $76 in a few months if they don't do well or sell out. Went to sell a pair I wasn't using I picked up from Oneness earlier this year and the prices were so low on eBay it made sense to just hold on to them and use them as beaters.
Heads be sleeping on Reebok but if they only knew.

The red/burgundy/blackcurrant are str8 flame.
@VNTG_BMW Funny thing I was going to ask him if it could only be France or particularly Italy but I get what you mean and maybe he did as well. There was a video I saw way back and cannot find now to link where an Italian shop had made a pair of Jordan's but out of the finest leathers. The quality on the J's was beyond anything I have ever seen and not even JBF is there yet. Not even close.
They would be easily worth more than $400. More like $1400.
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Jordan Shine “Grey”
@CaseyGUNS Just to be clear. Are you suggesting China/Taiwan doesn't have premium materials?
@jamarts21 @"C.E.O." "If people kill each other for his shoes then that means a lot." Actually it means one thing. They're uneducated.
Is your best defense or highlight of Jordan brand that people kill themselves and create havoc for his shoes? I'm not sure what's worse. The people that commit the violent acts or persons like yourself that seem to believe violence should be anything any brand would be proud of.
Jordan brand doesn't need to compete with other brands in the luxury/high end/designer market? I personally think you're dead wrong in your assertions and let me be the first to say so.
Jordan Shines are nothing more than a cheap Balenciaga ripoff but they already know they can put that Jumpman on turd brown dog shit and the lot of you will be begging for seconds, spoon in hand.
They did launch in Australia already and the online side of that release from Prime was a joke. Very limited stock and when they went live only a size 9 and 9.5 were available out of both the entire Huarache low part of the pack.
Keep your eyes on Wellgosh, Urban Industry and Crooked Tongues for a mid-late August release.

@BrandonEvans2 @FutureTomorrow_ My dude! Thanks so much for that link! You're absolutely right. You know what else they would go with PERFECT with I think?
The 24 Kilates X Reebok Fury. It would kinda give that look they had in the video they made(Very Pyrex/DOPE Chef). These are awesome socks man. Very nice.
I ordered from Size? just this Monday and wish we had this convo then lol. Just dropped them on my list. Thanks again bro. Appreciate the share.
1 month, 1 week ago on Footpatrol x Reebok Insta Pump Fury
@BrandonEvans2 I'll agree with you on the HAL and I only wish I could have gotten the capsule with those socks. It made the Instapump look like a slightly different shoe and I mean that in a very very good way. Still got the regular release though so I'm just fortunate for those.
For me the hardest that dropped this year was the Invincible X Reebok. I had people comment on my video of them that aren't even into Fury's. It was only after the drop everyone realized how tough they were and now you can't find a pair on eBay for less than $450.
I'm definitely copping these though. The blue (nappy suede?) just looks too butter and that milky bladder...YES pls :)
Until we get every release the UK gets not sure I'll be able to stop ordering overseas. Just this week I ordered 2 releases from the UK and have a third on the way that was picked up from a brother of mine in London.
As for GS, the Scream Green is already at all the Kids Footlockers I've been to in New Jersey.
