Good riddance. Midnight releases and preorders were used by employees anyway to buy and resell at higher prices.

As for the Concords. There's obviously a HUGE demand for it. Why ever stop making them? It's fu*king dumb.
If you notice after the concord release people lined up for every release after. Galaxy foams took it to a new level. Yeezy 2 will be fu*king insane. Nike limits the kicks to drive up hype for the next release. Then they look at the resell prices and say if people will be $100+ above retail then we will raise prices a few bucks at a time.

I'll never understand the allure of sneakers, but I camped out for an Xbox 360 and before the internet (which ruined the game totally), my dad and I would always camp out for WWE tickets as a kid, so I won't hate. However, seeing how you ******s were acting for those Concords, I can totally understand why Nike did this. Only difference now is sneakerheads will be camping out for the regular mall opening.

your best bet is to head up to some footlocker stores and make one of the bi*ches there your "girlfriend"

I am going to do this very soon. I don't even care how the bi*ch looks, well...maybe I do.
Lol.....I told my brother he needs to do that....but if I can't cop online I will pay a modest fee from resellers....sh*ts getting rediculus trying to cop in store plus these stores don't want to tell you how many they got before you stand in line after the yellow foams when dudes had camped out I realized this sh*t isn't for me any more I'm too old for this sh*t

It doesn't matter if they ban midnight releases or not the whole shoe game is fu*ked now and it's at an all time high and I don't see it dying down anytime soon. I work at a House of Hoops and we see people lining up for almost every shoe that releases its not just Jordan's and foams anymore and it's crazy to me. As far as employees buying up all the pairs I know for a fact that it don't happen in our store because we can only get one pair so believe me the less than 12 employees we have are not buying up all the shoes lol it's just that people that weren't buying shoes years back are playing catch up and buying them now some people call them hypebeast. But I don't believe there is a clear cut answer to the problem.

BULLsh*t.....there will ALWAYS be a STRONG demand for retro and new Jordans.......Every since J's came out in the 80s theres been a STRONG demand for them....Nike only payin like a $1 per pair anyway.....


What Nike needs to do is make a Jordan retail store where you can by any and every pair of J's that ever came out. Have 4 locations, NYC, LA, ATL and maybe Texas. Annnd they can still carry them in the regular chain and mom & pop spots...I gurantee you them spots would STAY pumpin out sneaks.....Nike needs to hire me......they need to understand their market and KNOW that they have the game on smash so there aint no needs to be just sending 3 pairs of shoes per store......thatz why people gettin k!lled or campin out for a pair of extremely over price shoes........
Good idea but the demand for j's where never this bad back in the day when the next style of j's came out nobody wanted the old ones so I would buy them from modells for like 80 bux so now I refuse to spend 160+ on retros if anyone disagrees its cuz they where to young or just started buying them 5 or 6 years ago.

Honestly they need to produce enough pairs so everybody can get a pair and go on with there day. The prices need to drop on shoes too because they are buying them and selling them online for 1500 dollars and nike is losing money. This is a smart ideal but with these times no pair of shoes should be over a 100 dollars. Nike, Jordan and etc have made their money. it should be about the brand now.

Pre Concords....I never had a problem going to the mall for a pair of kiks, I passed on the space jams and cool grey 11's,twice, in fact the mall around my way still had a few pairs of them on the shelf and had to send them back to nike!

The Black Cement III's sat on the shelf for a few weeks as well...but then the whole concord debacle happened, Around my way there wasn't any f!ghts, The store and mall employee's where the ones buying em all...needless to say damn near every last one of them where fired.

Anyway I copped the chicago 10's on the humble, last pair in the mall at 5:30 pm, got lucky.
The cement Iv's I'm not even going to front, my a.ss was at the mall at 5:30 (mall opened at 8) It was 2 other people outside with me. At 8:00 am it had to be like 100 people, at 9:00 (when the stores open) sh*t was crazy. I heard those wack a.ss royal 10's got the same treatment. At the end of the day, if you can't cop online, you better at least make it to the mall a few hours early. Not sure how The Playoff 12's will be, but my black a.ss will be there after the club, with a beach chair and my starbucks.

Im tipping my hat to the new sneaker heads............. I had a long run. Im finally finshed.
I feel you breh!!! I used to love this sh*t, was one of the most exciting and rewarding hobbies I've ever had but this sh*t has just gone too far. Like dudes already said, these kids nowadays only buy to resell (I see you Asian community!) n that's cool, go get yours homie... but damn for the rest of us who collected... sh*ts fu*ked up for good. I can't see myself ever getting back into the sneaker game. Im gonna hold on to my pairs n thats it. sh*t is just too ridiculous out there! taking all the fun outta the game man sh*t why can't we all just get along.
