@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.

@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.

@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.

@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.

@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.

@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.

@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.

@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.

@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.

@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.

If I ever meet Kanye I'll buy him a drink and thank him. While the lot of you hate and I am by no means a major fan of his he has created products that I sell in my store and they sell extremely well.


No other athlete or celeb has EVER done that for my store and sales. At this level it's all about business and money. Nothings personal.

@donadamsky @NigelHill It's not hard at all. They don't want to replicate the exact shoe. 

Consider that science and technical advances change what we know constantly and at an ever increasing rate of difference. We often like to hope it's for the betterment of future generations to come.

For example, if you found out that the toe box on several models from the 90's was directly responsible for several severe foot conditions would you want Nike to still make the shoe exactly the same?

@DutchShaefer81 I think if we momentarily put our feelings aside and look at the facts objectively there's no denying the "clear as day" evidence and facts.


The game was NEVER like this due to one individual. Method man in Grant Hills for All I need. Nope, sure didn't change the sneaker game like this. MJ, Kobe and Mike Tyson all in Air Huaraches. While not rappers, all still heavyweights in their own right. The shoe got shipped overseas and didn't return until this year. 20yrs later...

The only shoe I can think of that Kanye has not surpassed in general sales is what rap did for the Timberland boot. That however took a slew of rappers to accomplish but look at NYC now...you can't go two blocks in any borough without seeing minimum 5 on feet, any time of day.


It's easy to say Kanye changed the game and created X amount of hype when everything is in limited supply. It's harder to associate what rapper changed what back then because everything was mass produced and easily available. So maybe the author is 20yrs old but most of the facts presented are what they are.

Please stop using that word to describe exuberant pricing. Try picking up a dictionary or thesaurus sometime and expanding your vocabulary which will in turn significantly affect your earning potential and then you will never have to moan about the price of a sneaker again.
