Eastbay should make these a Phone-In-Only. That will eliminate BOTS. A regression in technology one can say.

Imagine, no online orders accepted. That will even the field a lot. 

It still might be impossible to get, but at least most of the people buying them have an equal chance.

Very nice. If this was the only notice that SN posted (or any shoe website), then I GUARANTEE that these won't sell out instantly. 


But knowing SN, that will NEVER happen. They don't have the will power to restrain themselves. So expect to see many, MANY more posts on these, driving up the hype, and inevitably resulting in an instant sell out.


Sure SN, Hype these and Jordan retros a million times, but show little to no love for other adidas, reebok, and even other nike retros huh?

Elites are never worth the price. It's just an excuse to charge more

Any of them that DON'T have any wacky ass designs are ok in my book. Just keep it simple

Yep keep the retros coming. The hype for adidas retros is no where near the Jordan hype. Got to love that

@dopeman978  Yeah I agree. All this madness over retros has really turned me off. Yeah some of these shoes are sweet (most are just plain goofy looking). But c'mon, If people just think about it it for a second. THESE ARE JUST SHOES!


And then once people get them, the next thing they do is complain! Complain about the price tag, the quality , etc. But notice how they don't return them to the store. They Just keep them and move on to the next shoe. It's a cycle.  


I wonder if in a decade, will this only get better or worse? Kids that currently can't afford these shoes right now will absolutely be buying them then. Now throw that new era into the mix. More competition. Or is all this a phase right now? Maybe in a decade people will be into something completely different. Probably not though.


Damn, Nike has all these people by the balls!
