Sneakergame all gone to shit. Kobes $225. Lebons $200. Crappy retro Jordans $190. What the hell! People now need bots to cop kicks online and in Nike stores. And Sneaker News, you're on some bullshit greed with this 2 pics per page crap; that seriously is annoying.

I love sneakers, but my God, someone gots to stop all this noise!

15 pages. One pic per page! Utterly ridiculous and worse than ever, which is why I stopped visiting a long time ago. You started as a great site, then shrank pics per page down (forcing more clicks), then featured less posts per page, and now this. Sneakernews has become a click-fest. Smdh

@iamromierome Might be late on this since haven't checked my sneaker happenings for a bit but I recommend swapping thru SoleCollector. I believe the fee is $20 but they're won't be issues of counterfeits or rip-offs. Haven't personally used it, but I heard good things about the service. I'd go that way instead of whackasses on eBay. GL!

How many Beats headphones do you need? Dude got more than underwear. Shows you how materialistic we have become. Additionally, he gets them free so we, the common consumer, can pay for them to get Beats CEO and Dre rich off a mediocre and overly hyped product

LMAO. You guys sayin you won't cop but you will.

Nike's got you all conditioned and trained to buy $200+ kicks at the drop of a hat now. Shitty quality Jordan retros up $10 from a couple years ago. Lebrons up to $200. LeBron Elites up $10 from only last year to $260. Now Foams from under 2 bills to last year of $220 to this year of $230. Yet, you still buy. You still get yellowed soles. You still get subpar quality. Look, my man KD couldn't even hold the sneaker retail below his preferred $100 price point. Nike straight playing people like puppets. Cut the strings, folks!

Jordan Brand should have just auctioned off ALL these signature days of flight kicks themselves and gave the money to charity for national disasters such as the Boston bombings or Midwest floods instead to these unappreciative dicks--you know people who need help in trying times. For Damn Sure, it would be money better spent

@airtwo3jrdn self-promoting much? You people can't appreciate a good thing when it's right in your lap. Jordan should've made sure winners would cherish the prizes rather than give them to greedy punks looking to flip. And yes, greedy, because you got offered 5k twice and 7.5 once, yet you still put them on eBay. Shameful

Don't worry about posting a link, SN will get to you soon enough.

Jordan Brand should still ban you and the rest of winners from any future promos that whorred out on ebay

Major problems SN.

1) You are really hurting the sneaker game with your rampant eBay reportings

2) 15Gs as a STARTING bid and not a BIN just shows you how this Jersey Shore reject and the like think when it comes to limited sneaker releases

3) Email JB at the address Marketing@jumpman23.com and voice your displeasure in these idiotic promotion releases to make sure promo kicks stay in the hands of true sneakerheads and not whore themselves out on eBay, Craigslist, or Flight Club. Shit, JB should've just handed out 10k from the jump or maybe this was the master plan. I know it pisses me off. Greed these days!

This guy. $550. Smh. What the hell is going on with greedy ass resellers these days. Dude even calls them RED SUEDES! At least get the description right. You can clearly see these aren't suede shoes. And if you cop ealrly releases, there's a good chance you get B grades and deformities from 'actual' released pairs.

@Phillips I've said some pretty negative things about SN. I will admit, they do a good job at covering all the brands. That's why I like SN vs other blog sites; it's not just about Nike & Jordan. But, seriously, SN gotta stop with multi-click pages. Damn annoying

Not my words but feel the same.

"Pardon my French but these cats sellin em online are fuckin arrogant assholes. You participate in a special contest and get a one of one Jordan and u just try to cash in on it. No respect. more deserving ppl out there that shoulda won"

LOTS of people, including myself, saying Jordan Brand should retract the shoes once they got to eBay. These damn people can't appreciate shit. Just want more and more and more. You get 1 of a kind sneaker and dump it. Can't say you're a real sneakerhead with that mentality. There are definitely more deserving people out there. I hope JB keeps track of what goes to auction and lifetime bans you from future promotions. That would be a smart thing to do

Summary from other point of view:

1) Elites are overrated and way overpriced

2) Playing in customs are cool but is more about ego and self-absorbtion

3) XX8s look like boots zipped up and irritating flaps zipped down. Not a good casual look whatsoever

4) DWade has been a great player in his Way of Wades. But just like his level of play, DWades douche levels have grown. Constantly tweeting pics of shoes not availablein the U.S. ALL SEASON! More narcissistic than ever. Flat out cocky. Even giving self-naming nicknames .... "wow". Really?!!! Gtfo

5) Ray Allen PEs have always been nice, but dudes play has been very inconsistent. Switching from one shoe to the next doesn't help

6) Nothing bad to say about Hyperposites. A bit pricey. Rondo killed it in the gold joints

7) Raptors heat - More Bulls colorways, so not hard to wear 'Heat' with that team.

8) Stunting in rare kicks - Well, that's all it is. Not one of those players are 'Most Improved' a marquee player, or consistently good EXCEPT for Nate. Nate wearing Yeezys lasted 1 qtr of a game. That was purely for attention purposes. Hell, might as well wear Nike Marty McFlys, lights on and all.

9) iDs are all good. Love seeing matching colorways and creative designs

10) Melo going back to a previous model is telling. He was straight on fire in the M8 Adv. Keep wearing those.

Addl Notes: What LeBron did was wear the SAME shoe almost every game. He said it took some getting used to when he switched to the FairFax and then also to the Elites. But mostly, it was the same model in fire colorways. Dude was amazing this year. Hands down MVP. I have to think footwear played a large part of it.

Please stop wearing sissy tights. This isn't ballet.

Bring on the Playoffs. Gonna be fun

@iamromierome It's just damn frustrating to know what could be if the target market would just realize and refuse the overpriced and junky crap we get. Maybe the buyers are ignorant (means unknowing) to what we get now vs years ago. I mean, I understand JB is a business and will look for ways to maximize profit. I get that. But if people would wise up a bit and boycott junk retros, it would force JB to either make good quality products again and/or raise prices. I stopped buying retros because of the drastic decline I've seen over the years. Honestly, I was really excited for the Playoff 12s, but when I got them, they were plastic-like. Not real leather. Plastic eyelets. Less padding. Sold that shoe off quick. ... Funny I was hoopin and some dude was wearing retros. Some guy straight came over and said, "you're not supposed to play in retros." yeah. Not play basketball in 'basketball' shoes. What a joke!

Thanks for posting pics. Imagine if the sneaker community revolted against the crap retro buying. Prices are higher than ever and quality worse than ever. Why do you guys keep being loyal to the brand that continuously screws you?!
