In NYC n*ggas always lining up for kicks, i cant lie im stood on a couple SHORT lines before opening. But not on some hypebeast camping trip type shiit. Fuk that man.

NYC statistically has the largest gap between rich and poor rivaling 3rd world countries... Yet i see n*ggas consuming the most. Not to mention everything here is expensive.

I bet dudes skip meals, stayed home, and saved unemployment checks to buy these damn kicks.

Shiit sad breh. Stop buying shiit yall dont neeeeeeeeed. If you already have 7's fuk u need more pairs for? How many times can n*ggas cop the same kicks? This is coming from a n*gga who has had 1-19.

Also fuk resellers, coppin kicks to relist for 200% more.

idk where ya'll was in the 90's, but the Jordan shoe game been like this, that's why it k!lls me when ya'll say the game is fu*ked up and it's "hypebeast" Jordans been selling out and muthafu*kas been lining up for sneaks man, just that it was no internet


even in the early 2000's jordan hype wasn't this big.

you could miss out on special j's the first day and a bunch of stores throughout the city would have them for about a week. now j's selling out all over the US in hours.

shoe collecting is a different animal than it was back then. it's become mainstream because of the post-2006 internet and social media, more and more resellers (reselling game is huge right now), more diverse (now suburban white kids and asians from privileged households buying j's with their rich parents money). a lot of people didn't even know release dates.

damn sure wasn't people camping out for jordans in the 90's

Even after selling out, JB would produce more...

Now its all about hype... started around 2002.

This. You could still find sizes left in all stores after they were released. Some even marked down 20-30%.

One thing is that J's used to be released in the middle of the week. I remember being late for class to stop by footlocker to cop them and wear the same day. Now everyone is available to line up friday afternoon.

Another thing is that JB started implementing "limited" colorways and releases. There were no Packs, BIN or FTLOTG special edition kicks. Now everyone seems to think every release is special and they must have it.

I remember back then instead of camping out we would get there around the time the store opens and when it was time for the mall doors to come open people would jump out of their cars and run to like a champs/footlocker/footaction etc.

I swear I was the fastest n*gga, I always had first in line leaving my fam behind. Nowadays when you get there when the store opens it's like 20+ n*ggas deep. When the concords dropped I was like 10th in line at 5:00 am, I kinda felt bad for the people behind me who wanted a size 10.5. Them n*ggas was acting like they was gonna jack my sh*t.
