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........
nah most people who buy jordans is because not everybody can get them.

some people might disagree me but it is what it is thats half of the reason.

me personal I don't do that no more because i'm grown and more mature and I get the j's I love the most than every pair that comes out.

i'm 25 now but when I was in middle/high school we would gets j's just to get and I know the same sh*t happens today.

if you take the jordan off most of those retros and they was plain nikes or reeboks nobody would want them.

Hmm...

The Average Pair of J's Vs a extremely hyped pair of Sb's...Those Sb's will be harder to get

In fact J's aren't hard to cop at all, with the exception of the Concords I never had a problem.

For sb's I gotta travel (no local skate shop) at least 30-40 miles. Which is why I usually just order em online.

And Foams forget about it, Not ever fu*king with them sh*ts, 200 dollars and maaaaaad hype. fu*k THAT sh*t LOL

With J's Nike just needs to be a lil more responsible. This is a good start. It's not about demand, if they make too many all that's going to happen is they will end up on the bargain bin in a nike outlet.
One Shoe per customer, store employees have to wait online like everybody else. Mall employees the same.

And show up early or risk missing out!

Very true, but me personally, I'd drop a $160 on retros, mainly cause it be so hard for me to get them, plus, all the half decent lookin shoes are at least a $120, and at this point, I'd rather pay the $160 for some shoes I LOVE then to pay $120 for some sneaks that are JUST ok.....


Dam, Modells was sellin retros?? Whoa I never knew that....
They where not retros at the time they where up to date releases I'm talking 95-98 modells used to be one of the main stores to get Jordans from this is before the whole retro thing was popping cuz Jordan used to only drop 2 styles a year with 2 colors at first home/away and then an alternate color about 2 months later.

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.
exactly..i remember back in the day i would walk in the store like at 2pm...get my Js...and im out...no lines, no issues...no dumb sh*t

They should ban the midnight releases b/c you got folks in the hood that don't know how to act right when they hear the new pair of Jordan's gone drop.

or they could just produce enough pairs so they can't be resold for $1500
did you miss the tweet saying that the concords were the highest produced shoe that year and they still sold out?

I mean if Apple can make enough iPhone / iPad units to go around on a hyped release everytime, then WTF is wrong with Nike producing enough Jordans to meet the demand?

Just last year a n*gga could walk in Footlocker and grab some Cement 3's the week after they dropped, now all these college f*ggots and hood boppers are sneakerheads since the concords dropped, when n*ggas lined up for the 10's I threw in the towel.

Exactly I remember in 05 when the playoff 12's dropped me and every nigg@ that was in line was able to get a pair and mind you that it wasn't 600 hundred ppl in line either


Now come this Saturday watch all that change
