Less beef salads and more flower bringing.
@sneakerhead79 I remember these days and miss them sorely. I'm from a small island but still we got all the Jordan's the US did. J's would sit in stores for months back home as well. I've asked myself the same question you have and as someone that really likes to understand how businesses work it's intrigued me what they've done over the last 20+ yrs. Then it makes me wonder. You're saying they sat for months where you were. I can confirm they did in St. Maarten.
What if this was happening worldwide and they were actually losing money mass producing them so then they decided to go the other way to build hype so no J would ever sit again? Love to hear your thoughts on that.

@Time2ballup @lbach So more serious hackers with larger goals haven't circumvented CAPTCHAS, which protect much more than unfair access to kicks but the developers of these bots will find a way around CAPTCHA technology?
I'm extremely doubtful but it would be fool hearted of me to use the words "impossible" or "never".

@TeamLateef @HugoazulYes I think I got that but then what happens when the reseller or person is at the mall trying to score pairs in store with his crew or elsewhere? He can't cop because all it did is add the size but it can't verify the picture. I mean you guys do understand how Captchas work right?

I agree with this entire list hands down. You guys nailed it. ESPECIALLY with the elephant print. Nike just please stop already.

@Sneakdisser300 I think what you forgot to tell everyone is that he didn't use it on Nike.com for the Jordan's. Maybe Footlocker or Footaction that hasn't made any move to fight bots or on Nike for a shoe that no one cared about.
I saw your earlier comment and if you read up on CAPTCHAS or knew/know how they work it will get some serious attention in the development and hacking community if someone discovered a way to cheat them. Last time that happened? Quick changes were made to captchas and the problem was solved. Sorry, but the days of bots and an unfair playing field might be over.

@Hugoazul Not really. The purpose of a bot allows the users to not be at their computer. Your logic suggests that they would be there, in front the computer which would mean they're in the same boat as the rest of us. I guess only time will tell.

@adadalives @qtbigwatts I wish I could like both these comments multiple times. I can't tell you(you both already know) how many shoes I've picked up because the person bought them and realized they weren't in a position to spend that money or they went broke as both of you have pointed out.

@lildwell I was just typing that to some people in another post and saw yours. Nothing new in this. Several banks and companies use this technology to this day and the uglier captcha boxes are dominant all over the internets.

This one shoe alone is going to run me broke this year.

He's definitely got heat but none of these shoes I'd have in my collection and I'm probably older if not the same age as dude. Grew up in the Jordan era, before twitter contests, raffles and all the other BS. Just grew tired of J's. Same shit different day.
Gotta check these vids to see if there's a collector with mad runners. That'll be my thing.

Caliroots is the only store I've seen with a release date of the 7th so far. Ouch at the price when you convert that to USD.

@blahblah80 With KD's in particular you're right. My bad. They're actually already out in Taiwan.

@juelz203 I doubt it and I think you probably have a packed boat. The aunt pearls never got my attention but these were tough from day 1. Then when I saw the on foot vid of them with a similar jogger I have the deal was sealed.

@JordaanWong I'm not sure where people are getting the special release date of the 7th from(I probably haven't dug around enough)but I haven't seen these on any website that will sell these once they release.
Nike's Sportswear Twitter account and the official sportswear "launch calendar" says 03.15.14.
