C. Look at his username.

@adidas please tell your creative lead to watch the designers placement of the "endorsed by:" in proportion to Stan Smith's face. I doubt it should be sitting on his head? Just reduce the face by 9.97%-12.4%.

"It’s all a matter of brand loyalty at this point"...uhm no. No "DIVERSE" sneakerhead, collector or sneaker aficionado is loyal to any one brand. If they are I really feel sorry for them. Almost every brand brings heat if you just look close enough and dare to be different. 


Why in the world would someone want to look like the last 200 people wearing bred 11's?

@Btys_ p.s. - you're talking about sneaker value but you can't have your cake and eat it to.


There are dozens upon dozens of extremely talented customizers out there, many who will easily produce 1:1's for clientele with deep enough pockets.


You either don't know this or just don't have deep pockets, want to buy any generic garbage Nike releases and then whine about exclusivity.

@Btys_ It sounds like you have zero range in your tastes and pick ups. There were 100's of shoes released this year alone with high levels of exclusivity and premium price tags. Your ignorance is not why I responded though.


You only see the value of sneakers in dollar signs? To say you're sad and the problem with sneaker culture today is an understatement. True collectors appreciate the CW, technology, the humble beginnings of the brand, what the model represents, the silhouette, athletes who may have set goals or showed human endurance and true competitiveness while wearing them and all you see is sneaker value?


You are a walking testament to EXACTLY what's wrong with sneaker culture today.

@clams Good response but it doesn't look like Pony Hair to me. We're guessing and we are having this convo on possibly one of the most unreliable platforms for news. We'll see. Agreed about the Pony Hair RF but for more reasons than it releasing 6yrs ago.

I wonder who named these "Pony Hair"? Very confusing since Ronnie Fieg has a 2008(I believe it is?) NB 575 collab called the "Pony Hair" or "Ponnie Hair". These don't really strike me as being a pony hair shoe.


Now that that's out of the way these are straight ugly. The Nike swoosh should have been a filled in solid color. If that out sole is anything like the Catalina mustard yellow on the Nike Air Huaraches, which by the way I'm still pissed most sites used heavily saturated and adjusted photos to make it look like a true yellow then these are going to look pretty bad. I would like to see them on feet but I probably still wouldn't touch them with a 10 ft pole. A gum out sole would have been nicer.

@Mindovermatter The shoes are absolutely garbage to grown adults but consider this. Just today I was talking to a group and it was mentioned that if you still color coordinate to most kids today you are absolutely whack. Then one of the guys chimes in his 5yr old daughter is already picking out mismatched socks when he takes her shopping. 


These shoes are not for us. I'm pretty certain Nike knows we absolutely hate them. But these little, easily influenced I want to rock everything mismatched kids? They're eating it up and they're who Nike wants. 


If you've already passed age X and are still buying Nike shoes they know they have you for life. Psychology 101. I work in advertising and see this all the time. I understand what I'm creating visually and what the writers are doing. Nothing is by accident and your creative from the gut will be morphed by the client until it matches their psychological strategy if they haven't already given you a style guide that they insist must be adhered to to the letter.

@snkrsandshoes @Cpack what he's saying is that if you've been following Sneakernews for awhile why do they always only list one place to get a pair of kicks when several places will have them? Hence this particular article is useless unless you leave in Diamond Bar, CA because you will have to hunt down them down if you live elsewhere and just wasted your time reading about them.


If I live in New York, Chicago, Nebraska or Miami this article does very little beyond the fact they've released this weekend. It's information we all already knew? Any serious collector should have already circled the date on their calendar once a confirmed date was announced weeks or months ago. So many sneaker blogs are like this.


Is it really that difficult to provide a wider list of retailers? No it's not and it's a continuation of either lazy journalism or journalism skewed towards favoritism and exposure for a few select shops.

@JasonJFiendAntokal you ain't even lying my dude. I had them in my cart at Urban Industry which I tend to usually check first as they have the cheapest prices on everything and quality service like END. Clothing. I love END. though and instapumps and some other shoes aren't released at Urban.


Then decided like you naw I'm good cause sneakernews said we're getting them. After your comment today I did the above and started to realize we may not be getting these at all. Sneakernews is just good for hearing about the shoe and that's it. This was the last straw for me though as it's not the first time their misinformation has thru me off in terms of copping something. http://solesupplier.co.uk and a few others are actually better sources of info. 


With them refusing to do something about the replica site spam here I may be done visiting them all together. There are better sneaker news blogs. Good luck man.

Not taking the chance as I missed out when these had dropped on Prime and this isn't looking good though Nike could surprise us. Just not sure that a part of a theme would drop in store only and the philosophy that could be developing here is one of old where we get the Huarache Flights while the UK, Japan and Australia gets the Huarache low.

@JFresh_136 Do you understand why your spirit is here having an imperfect human experience or do you really believe what you see in the mirror is what you are? That you're truly just flesh and bones?


Your comment sounds like you've been raised within a religious environment, particularly one that focuses on the King James version of the bible. You may want to start reading about who King James was and not just Wikipedia's version. Do you think healing must only be a physical phenomenon or can it be spiritual or mental? The bible is nothing more than an exaggerated set of parables and while I do believe Jesus was an ascended master in tune with his higher self and full potentiality, his healing was not limited only to physical touch. You do know that right? YOUR very bible teaches that but oddly why did you only cite healing by touch?

Next you may think there's no cure for cancer but who benefits by you not knowing about Dr. Max Gerson and the Gerson Therapy? What you think you know is not what you know at all and that's the difference between people that call themselves Gods and those who are under societies beliefs that they are subject to Gods and their every will. That's why some of you think Kanye is always ranting on about something and while he does get carried away you have to understand what level his energy is vibrating at before being so dismissive as to why that is.

@JasonJFiendAntokal Just got off the phone with nike CS, luckily I spoke with a sneakerhead that works there and here's the deal. Unfortunately the misinformation from @sneakernews continues. There is no set drop date or any information available for these as a US drop that's why it's not on the calendar. Thanks SneakerNews. I could have easily bought these myself last night when they dropped in the UK or asked a friend today to do me the favor.


She was very familiar with SneakerNews and other news blogs, I didn't even say the source(could have married this chick) and she confirmed what many of us have openly said here and long suspected. Anything on these news blogs, even what seems like official release dates should be taken with a grain of salt. The only or best info to go by is the Twitter, IG and FB of the brand in question.

@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.

@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.
