Lion's Pride CW gonna be Wild Hyped...  Along with "Terracotta Warrior" All these colorways will sellout in record time....

If you don't think so, then why has every colorway of the Jordan XX8 sold out? & they cost more than these...

I don't think many people realize how iconic the "Copa" is to the sport of soccer... Back in the day if you wore Copa's on the soccer field,  it was the equivalent of wearing J's  on the court..

 

With all the advances in soccer shoe technology by Nike, wearing these to play today would be like wearing any OG colorways of J's 1-5...

What happened to KD's "Deal" with Nike to never have his shoes priced over $100.00? Look for the KDV Elite to be $180 Nike 

You know  Nike still upset why they didn't release an Elite PS version of the KDIV...  They'll look to make up for it this year..

Funny, jut a few months ago everybody was crying about the Lebron X+ being $280 then all the Lebron + sold out... Now Nike is taking these to $305 & so many people want them that they gotta do a raffle/ ticket system to keep the peace...

 

What's the use of crying over prices if they're all gonna sell out any way? & Lebron's ain't the only shoe..

 

What happened to KD's shoes never being above $100 ?? Ha! Those days are gone.. His shoes will be at $150 next then $175 & in 2 years $200.... Foams?? Same thing Now they retail at $250...

 

The next few years will be interesting to watch.. When those Lebron X denim joints drop later this year, I'm already expecting a $325 price tag on those, don' worry those will sell out just like these Corks...

 @hozezae I have Banned 1's.. & yes it's a 2011 shoe.. & yes the quality of leather used is way better than anything that JB has put out in at least the past 10-12 years, I know I have 2001 1's & the Banned 1's are way better Material wise than those.. they May be even better than the '94 retro...

 

So I guess my point is, Nike Didn't have a problem producing a high quality product like the Banned 1's in 2011 for $109.99 +tax.. with 3 pair of laces & all the extra details.. 

 

So what's the excuse for not doing that all the time?

 

I'll tell you one thing.. When I was a kid back in the 80's wearing 1's, 2's, 3's & 4's... I don't ever remember the paint cracking or chipping after wearing them..

 @StephenDensmore  @Kev Loco No, the "Nike Air" on the tongue is not worth $30.. It's just Nike Charging an extra $30 because the can. 

 

If "Nike Air" is the only reason for charging an extra $30, then someone please explain why the Banned 1's retailed at $109.99.. I mean those had the correct labeling not to mention 3 pair of Laces (Black, White & Red) The 2 piece box & the quality of material used was excellent..The leather looks amazing on them. People will say they were B-Grades, but anybody who has them or has seen them will tell you, if that's Nike's definition of a B-Grade then they need to be releasing B-Grades.. Cause they look really good.. Also all the little extra's such as the "X" on the heel & inside of the shoe is really detailed... 

 

Nike knows what they can get away with so they'll .... just do it..

All nike has to do is make the mens sizes Nike+ technology slap a $270 price tag on them & they will sell out in record time..

It's all about the Hype, & these "All Star Galaxy X's" will sell out no matter what.. & the resale will be crazy high.. Looks like alot of the $180 color ways have stayed on the shelves..

 @Da_Real_Big_Infinite  @Sneakerhead2320  @QKicks Honestly, I live in a smaller town about 300,000 people, Closest Nike store is 4hrs, then 8hrs, There are 2 Nike outlets, but they are both 2.5 hrs from me, 1 to the north& 1 to the south.., My town only has 1 mall with 1 footlocker, 1 footaction, 1 champs, 1 finishline... There are no boutique shoe stores here either..

 

Everything is a raffle here, they even raffled Bred 4's here, SMH..  so basically it's Hype beast central here... We get kicks but in super small quantities.. Our footaction was the only store here to get Pink foams & only 10 pair & they raffled them too...

 

I've only seen 1 person with DB3's , 1 person with DB4's, , 1 person with Galaxy foams & nobody with Yeezy 2's.. Basically I have no outlet for exclusive heat locally, only the internet.. I understand where I live has alot to do with it.. But then I see all the complaining on twitter & I think maybe these kicks are that limited..

 @QKicks  @Sneakerhead2320 of  DB9's only or 1,000 including the entire DB line? If that's the case then How limited are they... really?  I'm sure 21 Mercer had a good stock too & I know they weren't the only 2 stores in NYC who had them..

Not to mention Nike town Chicago I'm sure had plenty too.. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining... I'm just trying to understand the fact that all these people on twitter are complaining they couldn't cop a pair but yet in a few weeks it seems like they'll be popping up everywhere. Is it purely resellers of is this shoe that limited?

 @hozezae Your right they'll probably be $140-$160 because of "Nike Air" on the tongue. But here's the messed up part, in 2001 The Retro 1's were $79.99... Now here's what's really messed up... Nike just upping the price cuz they can... It has nothing to do with the words "Nike Air" on the shoe..

 

Last Year Banned 1's retailed for $109.99, came with 3 pair of Lace (Red, Black & white) a nice two piece box, & Good quality leather... Anybody that has them can tell you the leather was good materials, 

 

So yes it can still be done for a good price, but why would Nike miss out on an extra $40.00 per pair, when the hype assures them they can sell them for $175.00 if they wanted to... No matter what the retail price is they will sell out....

 @GyanShieldsdad I hear you bro, I live in S.Texas & personally I have seen 3 people with the DB4's . But I was out in Vegas a couple of months ago, and visited Crossover at the Cosmopolitan they told me DB4's were a common shoe there & that pretty much anybody who wanted a pair was able to get them in that part of the sneaker world... Then there's the Yeezy 2's, in my part of TX I've never seen nobody rockin' a pair, but I heard at the Sneaker Summit in Houston, that everybody & their momma had a pair, that so many people had them on that it was ridiculous.. I thought that shoe was limited too..

 

As far as Nike raising retail price to curb reselling, I don't know about that. I also am not sure what you mean by the Lebron X+ $300 version not selling out? Every Lebron X+ that has released has sold out in record time.. Crown Jewels were super limited & sold out, Olympic + X's soldout in about 30 seconds on nikestore. The Lebron X+ Blue diamond the $300.00 + version actually sold out before the $200 version on nikestore. The Jade colorway was the first non+ CW to release & that sold out insanely fast.. No shoe stores in my area even received the Lebron X+ which led me to believe they were limited... 

 

After reading all the bitching & complaining about the price of the Lebron X+ I thought the $280+ pricetag would slow the demand down but after seeing all three $280 dollar + versions: Crown Jewels, Olympics & Blue Diamonds sell out in record time it's safe to say it didn't.

 

Then you have the Jordan Gold pack that retailed for $350.00 & was in such demand that many stores had to raffle them.. Imagine that, so many people lining up to give Nike $350+ tax that they had to hold raffles them off..

 

Judging by these examples, it's safe to say that no matter what nike raises retail prices to, they will keep selling out as fast as Nike can make them..

Then again that's even if these release on Nikestore.. They could pull the release just like the Galaxy foams.. & only release these in Miami, New York, Vegas, Chicago & LA.. Just  like they did with the Crown Jewels..

 I don't think they care about a few people complaining they're gonna sell out anyway... Whether it's me or somebody else buying them.. 

 

Also, the store raffles aren't as legit as people think.. I've been told by a manager of a shoe store that I used to deal with that raffles like the Gold pack raffle. That the employees were filmed while drawing names, but nobody actually confirms the names drawn in other words there's only one person who sees the name drawn.. The person drawing the names.. 

 

So if that person drawing names has already "Taxed" somebody or money's been exchanged.. That person's name can "Magically" be drawn... Even if that persons name really wasn't picked... People who filled out raffle tickets will never know, because the drawings in some stores are not done in front of customers ... I'm sure this happens in more towns than mine...

 @SE73N  @umdaman  You can believe that if you want, me I'll believe numbers, & the truth is that at $270 per pair & the only Lebron X's released so far have been in the Nike + technology so far..Nike is 2 for 2 as Both colorways were nearly impossible to cop. Nikestore sold out of the Olympic colorway in less than 10 seconds...

 

Tomorrow we'll see the first Non Nike + version released in the Cutting Jade colorway... If anybody wants to bet me that they won't sellout.. I'll take that bet..

 

So by tomorrow Nike will be 3 for 3 in the "So called ugly, overpriced Lebron X"  Looks to me like Nike has plenty of faith in the Lebron X. They still got the All-Star CW, Miami Night CW  to go.... Don't forget about the South Beach Color way...  I wonder if any of those will sell out?

I don't roll my eyes & close the page because I "Think I'm too cool" for this shoe.. If you didn't like the shoe or weren't curious about it you wouldn't have read the article.  

 

I get upset at everybody crying over prices & now Nike won't give everybody a chance to buy what they want.. Do me a favor & stick to wearing your Vans or your 2012 retro J's, Diamond supply shirt & Neff snap back...

 

This shit here for grown folk with money to burn...

Crazy only 10 locations... maybe 10-12 pairs per store? Even at 20 pairs per store that still only 200 pairs.. I doubt any store has more than 50 pairs per store.. Still only 500 pair max.. I can't believe these are so limited... I don't understand  how this is gonna stop re-sellers? 

 

Those of us who really want this shoe to wear & don't live anywhere near these stores will once again be left out or have to pay rape to re-sellers.

 

Maybe everybody crying over the $270 price tag has forced Nike to only make 500-1000 pairs of the Nike + per colorway. I can only expect that the best colorways are only going to be Nike+ only as Nike has already confirmed that not every colorway will be available in both + & non+ versions... & only certain colorways will be Nike + exclusive.

 

Thanks alot to everybody who cried about the price. Now the select few who live in major cities will have access to the best colorways & re-sale for rape... while the rest of us will be stuck with $180 versions that everybody will have on their feet.

 

Good Luck getting that Hypebeast South Beach colorway now....

There shouldn't be a problem picking these up.. Should be an easy cop.. All the hypebeasts will be going after Bred 11's.

 

And those that don't end up getting the 11's will try for the Black foams... then these will sell out by whoever couldn't get their hands on 11's & foams.. Sad to say but it's only the truth..

Some color ways will only be available in the + version.. (I think we know what color way they're are talking about)

 

I know it goes without saying but as long as Nike releases a South Beach color way it doesn't really matter how much they charge. They'll sell out just look at last years elite SB color way.

This guy said they're not his size & said he had to have them, what's he gonna do walk around with them in that dust bag or tie the laces together & hang them around his neck so they can drape over his shoulders?

 

Working on his sample game, had to have them, but says if your interested to inbox him.... No thanks I'll rock my 2001's that actually fit me & laugh while hypebeasts are camping out & paying $160 when back in 2001 I walked right in at 12:00 in the afternoon  & paid $79.99, because back then nobody liked 1's they weren't cool because they didn't have patent leather

 @AkPifstar  @ABoog I know what you mean, but man I wish I lived where you do, where I live,  Only 1 store got the Elite series both the Home & away sold out in 1/2 day here.. They only got 8 pairs of taxi's & there was a campout line for those. There was a campout line for the "Miami Vice/ SB"  colorway. & they only got 24 pairs of course they sold out.. 

 

They did get a restock of the Taxi's but didn't tell customers so they were sold out as soon as they opened the box. Now they only got 1 pair of size 8 taxi's sitting on the wall...

 

And we ain't talking about no mom & pop store.. this is one of the 3 big major shoe stores ( I don't count Finishline in my area cause they don't get no heat here where I live)

But Nike will make make all the hottest colorways in the Nike + version, if you don't believe me just look at this past year. The South Beach CW was only offered is the $250 Elite remember how everybody cried about that pricetag..

 

But I didnt see nobody complaining about the price when they released.. as a matter a fact I saw lines of people camping out..

 @Dutch7 I heard that but the shoe stores know how to get around the raffles too. All they do is the tickets they "Randomly draw" a minor's ticket.. Most malls have an ordinance of no minors before Normal business hours.

 

So when they tell the minors they can't sell them the shoes. The store associates either buy them themselves or the "sell 1st come 1st serve" basis... but they already know who they're gonna sell them to... It's already been decided...

 @Dutch7 Don't feel bad bro, I only got the South Beach elite & I had to pay rape from my shady ass local sneakershop associate. Other than that I would've been shut out as well.. But I totally agree..

 

It doesnt matter who's paying for these shoes (resellers or Sneakerheads) the point is they are flying off the shelves no matter the price.. 

 

I wish I Iived where some of y'all do cause, every elite series shoe sold out at my local shoe stores. Lebrons (All colorways) Kobes & Hyperdunks. Luckily I was able to get the pairs I wanted. 

 

And the supposed GR releases like Jordans.. There's camp outs every release & They never have enough always a good 30-50 people who didnt get they're pair..

The LunarTR1+ "Oregon Ducks" sold out in 7 minutes just this morning on nikestore at $235.00 a pair..

 

The Lebron championship pack sold out at $450.00 per pack & the GMP Pack was sold out before nikestore sent out the link on twitter..

 

The Destroyer "Dream Team" jackets sold out in 15 minutes on nikestore at $500 per jacket.. All you see on the news is how the whole damn country is in a drought with no rain & it's a 100 degrees everywhere & Nike is still selling out of winter jackets in the summer!!!

 

& I ain't even getting in to the South Beach/Miami Vice Elites or Yeezy 2's... 

 

It's time to accept the fact that this is where the shoe game is going.. I don't like it anymore than you or anybody else, but numbers don't lie.. & with numbers like that Nike will keep raising the price.. 

 

Nike doesn't care if you or I don't like the prices.. People are gonna buy them anyway & they'll sell out.. Just look at the examples I listed above.. How many people you know were able to get their hands on anything in that list at retail??

 @dfvdfv Haha! Son you have no idea, I was in this sneaker game when you were still shittin' green son. I got shoes older than you.. I don't camp out.. I don't own military blues & I bought 2 pairs of Royal/Black 1's in 2001 when JB sold these for $79.99 each not $160.00 like they will probably be next year, I won't be in line camping out with all the hypebeast like you when these release next year.

 

Your the one saying "All 1's have Nike Air" That's how I know you don't own a single pair of 1's & That's how I know your a Hypebeast.. You don't know your kicks..plain & simple. If you did you wouldn't have made that remark..

 

As a matter of fact only the '94 retros, the 2001 retros & the Banned 1's say "Nike Air" on them & I'll bet my pair of Banned 1's that you don't have any of those...  So Idk what you mean by all 1's have "Nike Air" on them...

 

By the way I'm a 35 year old man who actually saw Jordan play in person, not on youtube like you kids, who only know about Jordan because of your older brother & his friends. I wear what I like, not what's Nike or some website feeds me...

I agree with the concerns of the quality & no slide out box.. I caught alot of grief over my comments about quality..

 

I've been in this shoe game about 28 years.. I've been wearing J's & Nike's all my life..

 

I got the banned 1's that were released at select outlets last year, You know why illuminike & JB didn't release them to the major shoe stores?

 

Because the quality was actually really good on them.. They figured if people saw they could still make a shoe with real leather & "NIke" on it (not a jumpman) & only charge $109.00 for them why are they raising the prices & poor quality for all the other retro's...

 

Instead they give the excuse that they were "B" grade.. Anybody that has a pair can agree the quality was really good & the materials used were good stuff.. I buy kicks that I like.. not cause they have a Jumpman on them..
