The difference is there are no limited amount of homes or whatever that can be flipped. I mean flipping kicks is cool but some go overboard and just parasitic foreal just so their resale value can go up even more. Its a biz but to each is own..I just hate when resellers go Odee.

Homes aren't limited, but land (in prime locations) is. There is no difference, it is the same s**t. Same as a drink from the corner store. The store clerk buys it from somewhere/someone and "resells" it. Y'all going to knock him/her too?

Resellers aren't selling these shoes at gun point, somebody is paying triple price for them, and if they want to, let them.

But like you said, to each they own.

Close. But it's not the same. People buy houses, fix them up with new pipes, flooring, paint, amenities, and appliances -- and then flip them. People don't buy beater houses and flip them back as beater houses for triple the price; they do something to add value to the property.

Sneaker resellers do nothing but buy the shoes and let the market dictate the price.

Other difference is that there aren't limited housing options. If you're in the market for a home, only your budget dictates your options. In the sneaker game, it's a first come, first serve free-for-all.

The dudes who often win are the dudes with nothing better to do with their lives but wait in line.

EDIT: I could justify a reseller's existence if the intentions were to archive the shoe only to put it on sale years later when they're a memory, impossible to find, and there are no intentions to retro. That has value -- the way comic book collectors interpret value, for instance.

Otherwise, if you're not moving player exclusives or kicks 5+ years old, it's just a half-ass hustle that turns legit sneakerheads into hypebeasts.

Half a.ss hustle...you phrased it perfectly my man. This was going to be my response before I refreshed the thread and saw yours.

You CAN knock it, because if flipping shoes is even worth a person's time, then their "hustle" game was f**ked up to begin with.

Dealing in real estate is a worthy investment. Stocks, entrepreneurship, legitimate e-commerce. Those are actual business plans.

Buying some Dunks so you can sell for 150 more than their listed price is the "hustle" of a small minded person who has never left the urban area in which they grew up.

Aye, real talk bruh, f**k your lifestyle. If your life is shoes, your life ain't s**t anyway. People can do whatever they want with their money. "What if a teenager with good grades wants shoes?" f**k that little cookie cruncher, and everybody who look like them. If the kid went to the shop, and they were sold out, it wouldn't matter if someone brought five pairs or one, the store would still be sold out, he be in the same spot.

"n*ggas like you, I slap the daylights out of, just for disrespecting my lifestyle."
it is my lifestyle

whats urs?...i see u got an avy of a b**ch rocking CEMENT pattern'd suspenders...that alone is sneakerhead lifestyle orientated..

"cover all corners, before you step out of the one you're in to down talk another man's corner which has been covered thoroughly"


p.s. lets say you're the kid..and dude next in line is standing ahead of you and outta of the 6 pairs the store got...and he cops 5 pairs...when u go to the counter they aint got ur size...u still gon talk that "he in the same spot" bulls**t...naw..ur a.ss would be livid waiting in lines for hours and have that happen to u

So? What does that have to do with anything? She has t*ts, I know that.

If I was that kid in line, I'd be s**t out of luck still, wouldn't? What could I do? If meant it everything to me, and sneakers is my "lifestyle" price wouldn't matter, and I'll get them from somebody from somewhere. If it wasn't my "lifestyle" I'd get over it, just shoes, not that important.

Are you serious, do you know what monopoly mean ? There are 1000 count limited kicks (like that above)..over a million homes..over a 100 thousand land locations that are vacant to build on lets say...Any one can get in reality and flip homes because the market is big enough for it. Even the drink example ,are you serious ?There are plenty of options to buy from so grocery stores really do not have a monopoly unless they are the only store in a location that sells a certain product no one around has so they can go up on the prince.

The kicks game market is not big enough to flip shoes unless you were lucky enough to be at the beginning of the line or have a fly connect. Yall k!ll me comparing oranges and carrots..not even apples.. they both orange yeah but two different types of foods..wtf..
1000 limited = someone monopolizing off of it. I think most of yall skipped economics class in HS I swear...
