@BoricuaSole the Penny 1s are garbage? or the Air Way Ups are garbage because Penny didn't wear them?

@hozezae. good point that i didn't consider. i guess a possible solution to the store problem would be for JB/Nike allow each worker at each shoe store to pre-purchase only 2 pairs of any big release and then make publicly known on their website exactly how many pairs and what sizes are available at each store across the US.<< (some will still find a way around this but it will decrease and deter those hoarding 10-20+ pairs at a time to resell)

@HeGotShoeGame I'm willing to bet JB does this on purpose. from a marketing standpoint, send limited supplies to the stores so they sell out instantly, then re-stock limited again-sell out instantly again. suppying the demand now,  they would lose more $ in the long run. if some customers are upset they didn't get the latest/hottest release, they will be itching to get the next big release. so if they supplied the demand all the time, it wouldn't be a big deal to have JB products in the future. Al.so, these XIs have have become a mass general release, just relased sporadically at limited quntities, keeping the demand and their own hype high.

 i have the impression that Nike/JB like resellers... 1. guarantees sell outs 2. if customers are paying twice as much for their shoe by a reseller, than that's 2 pairs that a customer is not buying from their competitors. 3. (elusion of value and & limits) if Nike/JB made larger guantitives of shoes than it would NOT be a big deal to have their product.. "keep it limited and feed into the consumer's mind that; (i'm one of the few that owns this particular 'heat')"   and on a side note i like resellers as well, i buy shoes that i like and not for any other reason.. $ gets tight after paying on both car notes, child expenses, rent, bills and going out time to time with the wife. i miss a release or 2 when they come out... i dont sweat it tho cause i know there is a reseller out there who DIDNT wear the shoe and i just gotta pay a lil' more for the shoe that i truly want anyways.
