@phillishoes That's the entire point of the whole post - it's about the new printing process that gives the socks a crazy color that custom socks can't get. If you've ever worn a pair of printed socks, whether it be from customizers or brands like Stance/Strideline/etc., the shoddy quality of the printing shows itself the moment you wear them. Elite socks are a huge money maker for them so clearly there's a market, and those who are into socks will probably be very interested in the release.

@phillishoes Taken out of context. There are a lot of people who value their socks, and this is a confirmed special edition release. Thanks for reading.

@Brads Pitt You just described the stock market. Sneakers are a tangible stock with high appreciation and very low depreciation. If you know your sneakers, the potential is endless.

Agreed. Nobody was impressive in how they rocked their kicks. Maybe if they tied them around their waists and let them dangle, or scotch-taped them to their armpits, i'd be impressed. Wearing sneakers on feet isn't impressive anymore.
