Less beef salads and more flower bringing.
There's something about this CW particularly in the back that makes it feel "thrown together at the last minute". I think I'll pass.

@Sneak'freak "single handedly"...really fam? I wouldn't phrase it like that since Saucony was always on the map for any serious sneaker aficionado or collector. Now for US and UK destinations no lie it does feel like a new Grid 9000 collab or GR drops every weekend.
1 week, 3 days ago on Extra Butter x Saucony Aces Grid 9000 “Space Race Pack”
@Stephen Densmore @MIA_6The point is that they're pink not red so people need to stop saying "McDonald's color's"?? I can tell you @MIA_6 there is nothing about this shoe to be salty over. It's called having a personal opinion. Sorry if it doesn't align with yours or place me into the stereotyped group you'd like.
Why is it that no one can have an opinion that doesn't suck Jordan's dick without you or someone else saying we're salty or hating? Saw the same thing with the gamma 11's. Not every J that drops looks good and no I don't care about "oh OG this, OG that". I care about good looking shoes and this IMHO is NOT one of them. Thanks.

@trentbg - thx man. you know what's really odd? I have the "visual compendium of sneakers" poster and it has a CW like the one above but the red is a bit different in the back. There is also some wht where the above has black but it's very close. When Pop chart lab made the poster I don't think there was any way for them to know the above pair was being released and it says 1994. Thanks again though. I do wish they would re-release the blue/blk/grey/wht.

@trentbg Are you saying that the CW breaks differently than the '94's? Or is the CW entirely off?
@Rome 1 If only the common sense and educated dialogue displayed by some of you here was infectious to the touch. You know what scares me? If people act like this over "material goods" they could live without what would they do if water and food was being rationed? It's a chilling thought.

@JFresh_136 In theory you're right and so is everyone else saying this but I don't think any of you have fed Piranha's or watched a video of them feed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQIo9r8ZcjM
My post simply means these people in line don't think. They just envision getting the shoe. Doesn't matter if there's 7,000 people in front of them.
Sometimes I'm on the fence about living in NJ but when it comes to shoe releases I agree with you and others. It's definitely something I DON'T MISS about NYC?
@Brads Pitt I'm still at a loss for words.
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Massive Campout Forces Supreme To Cancel Foamposite Release
That was my mentality going into the UBIQ "Dirty Martini's", Lebron Gumbo's and KD Floral's. When I added up the lost sleep and then all for nothing at striking out on sites where my item would be in the cart then their sluggish systems just didn't allow me to complete I just started paying reseller prices. Some were only $80 above retail, others unfortunately double but if these dudes went to school with the determination that they camp out with paying over retail wouldn't be an issue.
@"C.E.O." Funny you say that because after two months of striking out "online" with over 4 brands I'm pretty tired of the games. I paid way over retail for my Lebron Gumbo's, KD Floral's and now the overpriced BS is starting to take effect with Reebok and Saucony. I can't complain about the problem but then contribute to it by paying reseller prices.
I have plenty of leather paint and suede dye here and come spring I'll be copping plenty of "basic", easily accessible shoes and doing my own work on them. This shit is just getting ridiculous now.
@fittedchamp01 If I could give you a 100 likes I would. Our priorities as a society are completely upside down. It would be awesome to see people camping out to vote or register for school. At the end of the day we're talking about a pair of shoes and in the case of the Supreme foams an ugly pair at that.
Really? Seriously? LOL Ronnie Fieg's worst shoe doesn't even come close to looking this bad.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Nike LeBron 11 EXT “Blue Suede” – Release Date
@Iseeulookin973 @FutureTomorrow_ Every time this has come up in chats and YouTube everyone goes into cricket mode and I can see the expression on their faces and could guess the thoughts. "Did he just say we shouldn't buy any more shoes until these brands fix this problem?"
What the culture has become makes me sick. People can sign an online petition and get major brands to change their habits but what can "SNEAKERHEADS" do? Just buy more shoes. 10yrs from now they'll still be in line or playing some rigged raffle, paying $500 for a pair of sneakers. Every time on YouTube they keep changing the number. "I won't spend over $160, $190, $220"... now I've heard the number as high as $300. Mark my words.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Massive Campout Forces Supreme To Cancel Foamposite Release
@Iseeulookin973 I'm with you 10,000% but it's not only about exclusivity. They don't want shoes sitting, unsold so they make limited numbers but I swear they're fucking idiots. Back in the day they made too many. Now they make to little. Where is the middle ground? Now Reebok, Saucony and New Balance are playing these same games.
If 900 to 10,000 try to place an order on their server, more for J's then you'd think by now they'd know to make a few more shoes. I'm not suggesting making enough so the market is flooded and it loses it's exclusivity but what is another 10,000 pairs? Totally disgusting.
@kicks67 @wcwktbThat's why I love when they and other sneaker news sites don't even have a shoe on their radar. Case in point the Garbstore x Reebok Insta Pump Fury 2nd collab. I could be mistaken but no one has mentioned that Garbstore might be the only peeps to have gotten 2 go's at the Fury and while both are dope(got the 1st pair today) the second one is a beast. Will be waking up to cop and it should be fairly easy.
Now these above? Good luck to anyone getting their hands on them and while I'd find something to rock them with from what I can see already it's not worth the trouble. It doesn't matter who's name you put on a collab most shops have already proved they have shit day's just like everyone else where they spew out utter garbage.
2 weeks, 6 days ago on Another Preview of the Solefly x Air Jordan 3
@sneakernews - I think you guys missed the fact that "featurelv", the store you guys have linked to so many times has had these for about a week or longer now. My pair, ordered from them was just picked up at the post office today and I'm staring at the box about to do an unboxing for YouTube right now.
They were also first released on Garbstore's Couverture site and quickly sold out. You know what's further interesting? They are dropping another CW tomorrow and when all is said and done it might appear Garbstore might have been the only shop given the exclusive opportunity to collab on 2 Insta Pump Fury's when everyone else only got one. I don't think anyone has shown the pair on their instagram except them which should make them very easy to pickup on 04.01.2014 when they drop.

@AndyOliverWpg @hanlololcho I wear size 10.5 to 11 in most shoes. ALL my Fury's are 11's. Also I would def get the Garbs. They were meant to work on most things ReeBok. Now to hunt down those transmission joints!

3 weeks, 3 days ago on Nike KD 6 “Floral”
I don't think the shoe is cheese I just feel the sole would have looked better in a cream or off-white color. Still a good shoe but I'd definitely paint it if I got my hands on a pair. Easy pass given the heat coming from #Saucony and #newbalance and we're only in March.
LMFAO @thehypebeast resellers on eBay. You think you're selling those AM's for those prices?

1 month ago on Air Jordan 3 “Wolf Grey”
@Sneak'freak J's on shelves? Not since late 80's, early 90's my friend. Maybe now in some of the exclusive stores etc but general stores and malls? Forget it.
@"C.E.O." Probably because people can't seem to get of JB's nutsacks and they act like JB solely defines sneaker culture. Didn't KOF write about this? They post pictures of a Reebok, Saucony, Asic(sans Ronnie Fieg)New Balance etc. and on average receive 0-15 comments and believe me 15 is pushing it. Now let them post a picture and article of a J. 25-200 comments easy.
Sadly all they're doing is giving the people(surely not me)what they want so yes expect lots more articles between now and when they drop. Interestingly with all these pics and that amount of time China will have the super perfects(replicas)which will be out mths before these drop.
@Elmosknife Price range is listed above in the article but questions for you. a. what would you imagine or think someone will wear with these? b. what kind of shoes do you normally wear now?

@dopeman978 Why is everyone taking a T1 line to mean a bot? It's not a bot. Please look it up. It's just a super fast internet connection which I was postulating could make all the difference in getting that coveted shoe.
I am strictly against the use of bots, have never and will never cop a shoe using one. I hope this clears things up and good luck!

@BackseatJuice - You're quite hilarious. Clearly your ignorance exceeds to not knowing a T1 line is a LEGAL connection and has nothing to do with bots. The reason why you can't afford to buy these at retail or reseller prices. #gobacktoschoolfool

1 month ago on Air Jordan 4 “Patchwork Louis Vuitton Don” by Dank Customs
@JuanMaCollector @kixs504 - JuanMaCollector could not have said it better. There was a time, late 80's and early - mid 90's when J's sat on shelves for months. Many I'm sure sent back to Nike. Multiply that accordingly for ever time I've heard others mention the same.
What did Nike and other brands learn after all was said and done? It's better to make 25k-50k(I don't know exact numbers so don't hate) shoes, let them sell out and just pen in a re-release date for the future. They would rather be assured they're going to make their money on a small quantity vs going all in. Every been to Vegas or Atlantic City? Surely you're not going to go all in?
Anyone that disagrees with this has never owned a business, watch their parents or friends run a business or has aspirations of running their own business and no I'm not talking about the corner store bodega. I'm talking about C-Suite and CEO level decisions where hard choices mean guaranteed returns.
1 month ago on Nike Takes It a Step Further, Denies Bots in Person
@JuanMaCollector Agreed and it changed my view of certain individuals on YouTube when I learned they were using them and actively telling people to get in touch with them for orders. Not surprisingly most of those persons have gone extremely quiet on their channels once the first weekend of Nike's actions took affect.
There's too much heat in these photos. Can't pick a favorite but if we had an S to that I have many.

@Iseeulookin973 - really good response yourself and when I look at the question again and the clarification of you're original questions I get it now. It's one thing to be more diversified in our kicks but another thing entirely to not have picked up a J since 2003/2004. While I hardly wear my J's personally I've definitely picked some up within that period, especially when they retro something that brings back HS memories of when I first owned the shoe.

@kshaun12 My bad fam. Maybe I should have worded that better and said "that's what I got from the article but it would be great if Nike confirmed".
Where I have reached out to them on their Twitter feed before with questions and they've been surprisingly responsive this seems like it might be an odd question to pose unless of course it's worded like a concerned customer. Even so I noticed my conversation with Footlocker early Saturday morning fell off as soon as I said the word "bot". Sure enough not 2 seconds into the process both 10.5 and 11 were all in others peoples carts for the KD Florals :(
@kshaun12 that seems like what the article says above fam.
I didn't get the Claret's but was able to cop these and just got my SNS notification this morning they've shipped.

@Iseeulookin973 @BrandonEvans2LOL are you serious fam or are you joking? What happened to Reeboks, Asics, Adidas, New Balance, Saucony etc? I think it's fair to say there are people who love sneakers in general, recognize the beauty every brand brings to the table and there are people that just like J's. Neither is wrong but I've always found it to be a mislabeling of sorts to say someone that only rocks or collects Jordan's to be a "sneakerhead", "sneaker collector" or any term associated with the affection of shoes.
Jordan Brand does not solely define sneaker culture.
@hrbomber1113 @Nikes_Jordans_ "If rare stuff starts selling out they'll fix that shit in 24 hours." Uhm isn't "rare" stuff, also known as Quick Strikes and uhmmm now they're fixing it albeit not 24 hours? Sorry man but I don't get what you're saying or what your point is.
@DelonteWilliams These are customs so there is no "general release". Hit up Dank to get you a pair.
@kshaun12 @daniners49 Well just in case I'm wrong and these are the ones you guys saw wouldn't surprise me. By now most of us know sneakernews sometimes gives us news that ain't as fresh as my socks.
