It's exactly the same as past releases. 8am GMT = 3am EST...if you live on the West Coast or Mid-West adjust the time accordingly by 5hrs.
Also take note of the mention about Twitter and Facebook links as that's where and how they release their stuff. Good luck to us all gentlemen.

I'm really trying to ignore this shoe because I like every CW I see. I already picked up the black pair and trying to restrain from buying the Cedar and now these. This CW however feels very hikish whereas the others don't. Crazy how a CW can just change the whole perception or idea about the shoes intended function and use.

@hovenator @FutureTomorrow_ I think that's why there's that quote that has more modern spins but originated from Socrates? "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing."
Def learned something new today and you're 1000% correct. As soon as you pointed that out so many things fell into place in terms of the quality, materials etc I see on Reeboks. Thanks again.

@RomeoRedJr @FutureTomorrow_ Not a prob broski. Everyone has two sizes in most nikes. Mine is a 10.5-11. I always get my Huaraches in a 11 but I've never owned Huarache Lights. These will be my first. If you want a definitive answer I would check the huarache forum at niketalk.com. Hope that helps.

@ScottCombs @inTheNameofQuen "to be a huge KD fan" - that's the contradiction in an otherwise good intentioned comment. They're not KD fans if they don't know who made his shoes and clearly would not have done their homework.
While I can't speak for @inTheNameofQuen let me re-clarify my point and position. I'm not saying the shoes needs to be devoid of any Nike branding. The question is does it need to be so gaudy or tastelessly huge in it's placement and application? That dear Watson is the question at hand.
5 days, 17 hours ago on Nike KD 7 Lifestyle “Ice Blue” – Release Date
@RomeoRedJr just a few things to keep in mind...
1. Almost every UK shop ships to NYC. I've ordered from over a dozen. Yes, footlocker.co.uk doesn't but they're not going to have these anyway.
2. Size? releases 98% of their shoes including collabs at 3:00am EST.
3. Size? does in store and online at the same time. At some Size? locations that may vary slightly. As long as I have ordered from them they have never done "in store first" limiting your chances of buying one of their collabs or other drops. I have at least 7 of their collabs and I live in New Jersey.
4. The UK is 5hrs ahead of the East Coast, hence why it's 3:00am for us on the East Coast but 8:00am in the UK
5. If you think you've struck out stay on the site and keep refreshing the page every 3-4 minutes. A lot of overseas and even UK transactions get cancelled due to a lack of funds or a bank declining the purchase due to suspected fraud so sizes get relisted back into availability almost immediately.
Good luck, stay positive and don't forget to set an alarm with the drop date. Don't get caught sleeping. Literally.

Why oh why does Nike insist on dropping that damn swoosh everywhere? That being said these are cold! Minus the back these looks like something that could have dropped for a Chinese New Year theme. Blue plate that reads "phylon" should have been gold. Too icy.

@kshaun12 @FutureTomorrow_ @txchres I think you might be right but I've also been noticing a decline on reseller prices. Not what they charge but what people seem willing to pay. The 95's look to me like a shoe they may try to get tops $65 profit from but as people forget about them because of newer releases the resellers are going to be forced to finally lower the price.
I hope you do get both in your collection and if you go for the J's first I think the price on the 95's will eventually drop but that all depends on available and how exclusive they are.
6 days, 15 hours ago on Nike Air Max “Halloween Pack” – Release Date
@kshaun12 @FutureTomorrow_ @txchres Personally I would go for the 95's. They're different and I like different in my kicks. Admittedly however, the 6's will match with more fits and if one is dead set on owning both I would go for the 6's first and circle back for the 95's later.
It's a really tough question man. Both shoes are colder than my freezer.

@Dj Reality Was just going to say the same thing. Adidas is usually good about supplying multiple laces though and I hope that's the case with these.
6 days, 23 hours ago on NIGO x adidas Originals ZX 500
@kshaun12 @txchres This may not work for every listing or place but here's something I've noticed. The previous article that pointed to the eBay seller? He's in Union City, NJ. I live in New Jersey. What I've done with Huaraches and others is when I see lot's of listings from my state I call up my local HOH/FL, Champs Sports etc and sometimes they have the shoe.
So if there are more listings besides the one seller SN pointed to it's likely, not a guarantee or fool proof that some local stores are getting these or just got them.

@Bananana_lumpia @Biga173rd Wise words all around my dude and yes there will always be hotter shoes coming out. The way these brands are flexing it could be in a few days or a week or two.
I can only hope he meant it like that because people should be able to buy what they like even if it's hyped. Solely because it's hyped is a loss of identity and troubling. I hope you get what you're gunning for next time broski. Peace.
1 week ago on Supreme x Nike Air Force 1 High – Release Date
Did anyone else notice that dudes white pants are dirty?
@Bananana_lumpia @Biga173rd I think what he meant to say is "If you passed up the dozens of GR's and collabs from other brands that utilize a similar CW, are high tops and past AF 1's that used these colors and are only grabbing these now because it's a Supreme collab and has a strap with "world famous" on it then you my friend are a super Hypebeast."
If that's what he meant then I would have to agree the person is a hypebeast and it goes beyond people copping what they like. They're copping what is trendy or "hyped" and being a "beast" about it with ridiculous phrases like "I need these in my life". Nah Nizzy...you need an education in your life.
@lazerfizz @FutureTomorrow_ @seequence it's most likely because I'm the oldest of four siblings and was completely not insulting in getting my youngest sibling to stop asking me questions he could easily find doing a Google search, which in turn would not only help him learn search query structure but better understand keywords. There's obviously other benefits.
Given I'm often surrounded by young people I'm actually very concerned for them and you have no idea the simple shit I've had people ask me. I usually try to approach it with "well did you try Googling X first?"
9/10 times they hadn't even thought about it. Scary.
@2cstrong One more thing. With the forward thinking Adidas has shown in the last few years and their arsenal of designers I wouldn't mind seeing Adidas buy Reebok. As crazy as this may sound to some I believe they may be able to help Reebok innovate more than Nike would.
1 week ago on Nike CEO Mark Parker on Buying Reebok, Sneaker Reselling, Apple, and More
@2cstrong Yes. The way he avoids some of the questions or dances delicately in answering them shows why he is the CEO of one of the most powerful footwear, athletic and apparel brands on the planet. And double yes as I've stated before to wanting them to stay out of Reebok.
@kcookrocks Which is interesting since they had supposedly fixed the issue and he was still playing in the Soldiers after the fact. They out did themselves with the 9's and 10's and like a platinum selling record they're struggling to duplicate that success story.

@seequence @FutureTomorrow_ Sorry my dude. I'm older and tend to be way too cynical and pointed at times. I've also never camped for shoes, which was unheard of when I was coming up.
If you read the article again it specifically says where these are going to be released and since you live in Canada the online option would be what you want to shoot for. Hope that helps.
@Luke77 You ain't lying. Didn't the customizers who were dropping Supreme on kicks stop because there was too much demand? Problem with these last few generations is there's no Mr. T to pity these fools.
@seequence @SneakerNews The short answer is definitely not.
@seequence @SneakerNews My dude....have you ever known a Supreme collab or clothing to release at a FL or Champs? C'mon broski.
@seequence LMFAO...dude are you being serious right now or funny cause you did make me LOL.

1 week, 1 day ago on Twitter Conversations: Could LeBron Eventually Outsell Jordan?
Their website can't handle a launch of more than 4-5 new "hyped" releases in one weekend so god forbid they should ever be in a position to not distribute and force customers to solely purchase from a Nike ecosystem. Maybe I misunderstood the question but there are other aspects of that which seem like it would be a foolish move for such a brand so large. Now some smaller brands are clearly having success in that regard but it's none of the major shoe companies.
I don't know why I would be worried if Nike bought Reebok but I just would be. Maybe because I'm not a Nike loyalist and collect Instapump Fury's and wear other Reebok's as well. At the end of the day they probably would end up helping the brand more than hurting it but that's yet to be seen and they would have to buy Reebok first to elaborate more on that thought.

@Foots230 I've thought about the subscription model for Nike and others and it's really simple. Some stores due it to a degree but I think more can be done. Way more.
Imagine if the subscription model had different tiers? Now also imagine that Nike had a way through closer monitoring of social media, accounts and sales data to view and reward who was actually buying the shoes because they loved the brand and who were str8 up resellers? Maybe a bit too big brotherish? Not sure but what is and isn't these days and definitely don't want to make this a convo or comment about privacy and rights.
Now further imagine if how your were tiered up in the subscription, how much money you had previously spent with Nike and other variables Nike released private links to say X amount of individuals ever hour or two? The links could be so unique that even if others got wind of it it would do them little good as they wouldn't be able to figure out the link structure in time and even if they did a. their name wouldn't match the list of who was supposed to buy during that hour b. the improved verification might come in the form of a "unique" email code so they would also fail at this level because the code would be randomly generated using a combined email, real name etc structure that it would almost be impossible to duplicate.
Bottom line is I agree with your comment and where your thought is headed. People moan about how BAIT releases their kicks but they kinda got it right. At least for many of their releases or re-releases. Can it be better? Sure. Definitely it can.

@Criplize "One last note that I'd like to see Nike start doing is offering better insoles, or at least not glue them in." - I couldn't agree more but have you ever owned any Kobe 8's or 9's? Your thoughts on the insoles? I've personally always thought Nike should offer insoles of that caliber as a standard in each shoe. Now whether they want to take that beyond for their signature shoes and specific lines(I think they should) is clearly their choice but having worked on client brands that sell insoles like ProFoot and looked at competitive sets for Dr. Scholls it's those same poor insoles that make these companies very lucrative businesses.
1 week, 6 days ago on Twitter Conversations: Are Nikestore Restocks Pointless?
@kcookrocks You're actually 100% correct and I took your initial point in another direction it wasn't intended since it had nothing to do with the actual shoes. They were more available for me as a kid because the culture definitely was NOT what it is today.
Back then I knew 3 guys that collected almost every Nike of worth that released. Today I know 100's. Good point and I stand corrected. Thanks.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Twitter Conversations: Are Nikestore Restocks Pointless?
@theluke1000 @SneakerNews I would actually believe that. I've bought shoes in amounts where I depleted the stock of a particular size. Sometimes I had to return a few, all unworn of course and 2-3 weeks later I would see those sizes and sometimes only those sizes available again. Coincidence?
I do believe this is what happens with quarter size or half size restocks. It's not a newly produced batch, it's returns.
@Criplize You're actually right. Before all this retro nonsense Jordan's sat because Nike made plenty for everyone.
Not only rare shoes and it was long predicted this area would see remarkable growth in ecommerce and sales of merchandise. Exclusivity. So while many here will complain it's a guarantee 3/4 of them would not buy the shoe would Nike turn around tomorrow and mass produce it.
@"C.E.O." There's already enough clones of sheep running around my dude. I respect each person has got to dress how they want and cop what they want but fuck me a little individuality never killed anyone.
Too many carbon copy dudes running around the place. If someone can't make an NB, Puma, Asic, Adidas work guess what? They had no swag to begin with. When people try to tell me in real life why they don't ride with these brands I hear excuses worse than the dog ate my homework.
They're brainwashed by their environments and Nike and some don't even know it.
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Twitter Conversations: Are Nikestore Restocks Pointless?
@joscarmoran Yes. I bought 2 J's over the last 2yrs and neither are the hyped J's dudes are beaten each other over and paying stupid prices for. Over hyped kicks, many of which I owned as a kid coming up before twitter, raffles, they were called retros and skinny jeans. J's sat. Anyone could buy as many as they want. No limit.
Let me correct you on something though. I'm 40. You sound like you're up there in age yourself. How exactly do you propose someone born in the last 9-18yrs have avoided the hype? They didn't have any control over when they were born my dude and kids will be kids.
It's often hard to believe that Nike is no.1 in certain areas of the sneaker business and culture but as far as having a fluid, seamless and non-irritating user experience on their site they receive failing grades every release.
It's always the same result. Very limited amounts of kicks for an extremely large audience and if one were to crunch the numbers in terms of the odds of getting specific kicks X the sites tendency to crash and become unusable I would say it's pointless.
Depending on what you do for a living and if you got the loot it almost makes sense to not waste your time and buy from a reliable reseller who won't ask you to break the bank to get a pair. Time is one of the most if not to some the most important, non-quantifiable asset we have and a large part of it is spent tracking down kicks, waiting in lines and camping out for a pair that many end up never being copped.
Now I just follow multiple saved searches on eBay and when I find the right price or one appears I buy. Most of these by the way are not Nike's and if you look on eBay and IG and can separate fakes from replicas easily there are still a good deal of decent sellers out there.
@Art_By_Signal Saw them today on a UK IG channel I follow and thought the same. These are cold AF. Too grassy for hypebeasts. Two more days until pay day and these are an instacop.

The people that took the time to comment obviously do...
Because it was mentioned several times by West and others that one of the reasons why he left Nike was because of how limited they made the shoes? Because of what they did to several sneaker boutiques that wanted to carry the Yeezy's? So the point of him jumping ship was so that they would not be so limited.
Where did you see a picture of them?
