@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.

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.

@aquarilized @SneakerNews I'm not sure which ACG's you're referring to but I destroyed a pair of brand new ACG boots in 2011 wading about half a mile across 4ft deep snow thinking the "boots" were waterproof. What a joke. Thank god i didn't get pneumonia or frostbite.

@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.

@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.

@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.

@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.

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.

@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.

I love KD shoes and can't hate on anybody because it's their taste and money but definitely hypebeast journalism on the part of KOF. Like posted above many models/versions of KD's can be found for lower than retail and many outlets and regular stores.

YellowingSucks you make a beyond sensible point and one I'd personally like to see Nike address. If the shoe is that limited then it's not to help little kids it's to help further the Jordan brand and just more clever marketing disguised as "good will" to those less fortunate or suffering.
