The Shoe Game is dead....
 

 
There has been no new models that generated hype in the past decade except for the yeezy. Donít say vapormax cause that shoe is for the times and can you really see them being retroed in 10 years?

Jordan retros are basically what Air Force Ones where back in the day: over saturated as hell. Everybody at least has one pair of retros.

The only models generating interest are high fashion models (yeezys, off white, designer collabs). This is due to the clothing game taking over the sneaker game.

Is the sneaker game on itís last legs? (At least on the mainstream level)

For you it may be.

To the buying public. It's stronger than its ever been. Sales figures prove this

I’m not big on sneakers like a use to be, I rather spend my money on other things. But sneaker game is at its best right now. Of course If you just buy Jordan’s then yes it will become stale.

I keep hearing this excuse but sneaker resell is at an all time low lmfao. Shoes are sitting shelves and going to outlets. Only thing thatís at its peak is volume. Thereís no even regional releases anymore + The shoes that are actually hyped are out of reach. Maybe Iím just speaking too soon.

The audience changed.
It used to be black/Hispanic & suburban white kids who listened to hip hop, now the audience is almost exclusively continental Asians & people chasing the value of the shoes.
Js & other nike sigs have fallen out of favor in US metros, they're still cool but its moving towards how it was back in 05-10'. It's cyclical but this is definitely downtime.

Nobody is trying to spend over $200 for kicks except for hypebeasts and people who love to keep up with the Jones. Also low cut sneakers are what's in nowadays and it's not hella expensive. For me the only kicks I'm willing to break bank for are the Jordan 1's, Son of Mars, and even though they're waaaay expensive the Red October's and Air Mag's.

Man idk it seems like kids these days would rather take that money and get a battle pass or skins than sum shoes.

i walked away from the whole sneaker game way before it was called hypebeasting on the mainstream when i saw ppl doing lined up camp outs. even then i thought the game fvcked up.

but i still drive past the largest adidas store in my city on my way to work in the morning and see these snot nosed kids in they sleeping bags. and im thinkin oh some yeezys must be droppin. im not looking down on them or anything. im simply realizing im personally way past that but as much as im done with it, just as many ppl are just becoming interested in the culture. tbh im envious of the young bloods who have the time and energy to sleep on the cold streets for something they are passionate about (whether it's the true love for the kicks or the quickflip money) cuz these days i wouldnt even consider going out unless the venue has valet
