            Jordna 1s are just dunks, and come laced up to the max. If you know how to rock em, they dont look like "clown shoes" and weve seen pretty much everything but lunar, max air, and  flywire on the shoes so far, and even seen polka dots and annondiezed vers similar to foams in just the past few years. I think releasing the OG flavors is just what the jordan 1 needed right now, its about time.

 @sheekdollaz I know its nothing new, i just wish they would stop doing that. when nike had stuff planned out for months I could always swing  every release. Popping stuff so short notice is killing me, because i always put my money  into other stuff. Just bought a new laptop a few days ago so most likely have to miss out.

Nah man you got played, Uncle joe is the truth and has a very valid point even if it wasn't worded that well .

 

You might not think so but  this was probably one of the most hyped release of  NB's ive seen since the Kennedys, and alot of blogs posted about them multiple times hyping them up believe it or not, and alot of beasts ate it up because of colorway. I would have liked to have this extra  information left low key and strictly for the Nb lovers, like most are, but that's the only point we are trying to make.

 

Stop being so damn defensive and acting like everyone is always attacking you personally, you create way too many arguments that way.

why the F does nike keep announcing shit just a couple of weeks from release?  they need to announce shit earlier so I can my money together. Like 6 releases got announced  out of nowhere within the next month and I might not be able to budget this one on top of it.

Honestly I dont think everyone cares like they say they do, I think this is just a cheap cover-up by alot of sneaker sites to try and get nike to release fully functional Marty Mcflys. We already have flightposite shoes and you could push for gloves that will negate the need to tie a shoe. Id rather petition for something actually worthwhile like Stoping QS  tags, limited releases, and creating more  supply of  popular releases than giving a shit about  some kid who cant tie his shoes.

 yea like when i say bout that life, I mean people who arent new to money, or people who just have class in general. It just seems like us black ppl, when we get some money, are wayy to tacky with it. Like you get a gucci belt, buy the suit and tie to go with it. You get a burberry scarf, buy the trench coat to match. 

 

I have no problem with sneakers but rappers and  hood characters always try and turn classy fashions into urban culture and it just dont work that way. Have those white folks int he store lookin at us like monkeys, and honestly I feel the same way every time i see nigas in a LV store. They act rowdy and go for the  gaudiest stuff in the store (usually sneakers belts and scarves, or womens bags which still gets a big pause from me)

 

 I just think this was a silly article because obviously, future was only trying to show off that he has money or swag.

Loose an argument = "your a troll!" how origional.

 

Like i said supply and demand is THEORY. In reality its not working in NIkes case, exactly as this THEORY is suggesting, hence its not specifically applicable in the conversation. Is it that hard to understand?

 

Moving on, most people on these sites and blogs who want the shoe are able to secure their pairs retail or a little bit higher, and then there are ppl who pay reseller prices out of convenience. Im a part of multiple sneaker communities and pretty much everyone I know and have contact with are sneakerheads, and no one has too much of a hard time getting a shoe they want retail on release day. Call it an educated guess if you want but  when you see forums blowing up about ppl not able to get pairs then we'll talk.

 

    There are also multiple outlets, mom and pop stores, uk retailers, numerous online retail outlets. If your not able to secure a pair at retail or close to that then your not trying hard enough. like I said  BE MORE DILIGENT, aka, put in more effort. You seem to think this is a foreign term.

 

So, in closing, regarding your main statement, theres no reason to increase the price because there are a bunch of people who cant get pairs. It honestly sounds like whining. you will not and cannot stop resellers at any pricepoint and this will not deter them or the hypebeasts. It just makes all the true sneakerheads who know the price ceiling of these retroes quit the game. Take it to a casual sneakerhead to not be able to figure that out.

 @GyanShieldsdad   oh brother, give it a rest, IM not going to continue to argue about supply and demand. If you want to make a point, you got it in theory, but realistically  it doesn't apply in nikes case, as they control supply create their own demand at will, and  leverage all sales/losses/lack of demand  via their retail account holders and all the crap they need to buy just to keep their account. they will always win. No need to even reply with a rebuttal on that i dont care anymore its irrelevant.

 

 The whole argument is that you made a ridiculous claim that raising prices would be a great idea so that  resellers wouldnt buy and regular people could get more shoes.  totally wrong.  Retro J's arent worth reseller prices and its idiotic to think riaisng prices is going to keep resellers form selling and hypebeasts from beasting, its just a win/win for Nike and a big L for consumers as MOST people who want the shoes are able to snag at retail.

 

Like i said before dont hate the game, just  be more diligent and youll get them. Eventually the concord beast craze will end soon and itll be better, but for now, no need to pay reseller prices at retail.

 @GyanShieldsdad  @Prestigious wow, did you go to college... like this is being taught to every college student... seriously.

 

anyways. Like i said this is not oil and supply and demand still does not specifically apply here , it doesnt mean I do not know it means. Unlike oil, Nike can create enough supply for the demand and still create even more money than its still making, using the same marketing tactics they have been doing, they just choose not to. I know your just trying to make a point but  its not specifically valid. Nike makes money in EVERY scenario of supply and demand through their retailers so it technically does not apply.

 

2)ive never skimmed through your responses so why do you keep saying this? your specific quote was 

"I don't see a boat load of the same SB shoe in auction over and over like all the j's sitting on e-bay 4 ever."

And I explained that  the reason for this is that no one cares about SB's anymore after the pink box (and some black box ones). If Nike was still catering to  boutique  sneakerheads with the SB line with thier packs and special colorways then yes, you would see the same scenario thats going on now with J's

 

3)I excuse you, its alright.

 

4) resellers are an issue but the children are waay worse than they were years ago, where have you been? Kids want every pair that comes out now, they want to be "fresh" just like the rappers and trendy people tell them they should be, and its so bad that people who dont even like basketball or sportswear  are hyping for J's becuase that the hip and trendy thing to do. I see the kids online, I see them in the streets and its just the trendy thing to do (along with other signature shoes like foams) Mix that with all the older heads and you have problems, even with nike being more generous in demand then they hav ebeeni n previous years.

 

5)Lebrons arent my favorite brand of sneaker but the elites were a perfect example of price ceiling, and im not sure nike will do it again unless there is some garunteed hype, but what other shoe had that kind of price? none really, i was just making an example. also, the miami nights were arguably ugly, thats why the hype didt work.

 

 

6) whats wrong with  buying multiple pairs? I wear my shoes, but alot of times I  need a second pair to DS becuase im a collector, and maybe a third pair if its a  shoe that I really like to wear and need another backup (or trade) its not for everyone but if your a hardcore collector then you already know.

 

 

Honestly you sound like a casual sneakerhead. If so, these times aren't for you.

 @GyanShieldsdad  @Prestigious 

Ugh you are either an idiot or  just dont read well. I said nothing about YOU not getting kanyes, i dont care about your post history, that was my own personal story....

 

second, sneakers ARENT LIKE OIL!. oil is a finite  natural recourse that cant be created, Nike can Easily create a supply of sneakers  for the demand and still make money hand over foot, its just a cash grab at making MORE MONEY in the long run. This has been their marketing scheme for the past 7 years.

 

forth,  Lebron south beaches are still the perfect example. Resellers aside there is a limit on what people are willing to pay for a shoe retail on a GR. slightly limited south beaches were hyped and thus sold out mostly on hoop dreams of 1000 dollar resell prices like the 8's, but the GR  maize and golds sat, because what dumbass breaks thier neck to pay 250 for GR shoes retail? honestly.......

 

forth,  your argument about nikeSB, WRONG. Nikesb shoes generally have no release date and  since Nike has been catering towards the skater crowd and not the boutique shoe crowd (post Pink box era) and stopped giving them names, No one really cares about them anymore, but back int he day Sb's were WAY more lucrative in reselling than Js ever were.

 

In closing, im not a reseller, nor have I ever resold a pair of anything. At most I get 2 or 3 pairs max  for wear, stock, and a third for trade bait for hypebeasts, but that's about it.

I see you sit here and complain about not being able to cop online or in store, but really, your not diligent enough. like I said theres a method, are you new to this or something?. Get mad if you want  but at the end of the day, I can procure pairs from online outlets and retail establishments on day one and you cant or have a hard time but you assume im some type of anti sneakerhead because I say dont hate the game. Get over yourself.

 

Your not the only one trying to get a pair, there are easily dozens of thousands of ppl hitting these servers, so cut it out really.

 

I dont even blame the resellers, I blame the rappers and children honestly. Ive been at lines and seen just way too many hypebeast children who are just trying to be instagram/tumblr hipsters. there was never this type of underage beasting as there is today.

2 years, 4 months ago on Senseless Violence Breaks Out At Air Jordan 7 Olympic Release

 @GyanShieldsdad  @Prestigious Actually everything you just said was ridiculous.

 

1)You want Nike to raise prices to reseller levels, so resellers will be slowed or deterred? this is ridiculous. Nike then becomes the reseller, shoes still sellout, consumers pay MORE to resellers, and still  get played in the end. there is a pricepoint people are not willing to pay retail and hopefully this stupid theory never becomes reality.

 

2) Restocks  dont mean resellers wasted money. LOTS of people paid well over 300 and up resell wise for those south beaches, restocks were gone before most people even realized there was one. The other two  colorways?  they sat for months,  price point was too high for a GR that isnt hyped.

 

3) it wasn't just 9 years ago, my mars blackmon 5's were $115 barely 6 years ago, and now they are $160, a 40% markup, and I dont care what year it is,  there is a ceiling of how much retro shoes are worth. This is not like gas prices where supply and demand is finite and based on a bunch of complex factors, NIKE IS THE SOLE CONTROLLER of the supply. they can create as many hoes as they need and hike the price up for no reason other than cash grabs, as there are no other good reasons for the price increases.

 

4) Oh, "anybody" can click a button at 8 am? Those "anybodys" don't have the shoes ,and people who are diligent and know what they are doing get them. Its the reason  I have little issues procuring multiple pairs online for EVERY Release, and you are on a sneaker blog complaining about how you cant. ( I missed out on kanyes retail tho, I was at the movies).

 

5) Dont complain about people who are reselling in bulk before release, as most of those shoes are "arguably" B grades smuggled out from China, or if they are legit Jordan account shoes, they'll be dealt with if caught, but Nike in general has a decent system of shoe circulation.Its just that any and every system can be worked to your advantage.

 

Like i said, if your good at procuring online and through other methods who cares what these idiots want to charge early.

 @GyanShieldsdad  @Prestigious  Are you nuts? raise the prices? retro jordans are already at a 45% markup from 9 years ago.  that's also not going to stop the re-seller issue, as the lebron south beach elites had no problem selling out in seconds at an outrageous price of 210$. These retro Jordans aren't worth 200 and up and I, and alot of other OG sneakerheads will not pay that kind of money retail when its not worth it. I understand you have a problem securing your shoes but dont assume ppl aren't getting pairs online, there are just THAT many people trying to get pairs at the same time and you need to be THAT much more diligent to get them.
