Beat me to it...

In my opinion? I think this is a message warfare tactic for Nike to bloody up da nose of stockx's reputation for retaliation for stockx using nikes trade dress and proprietary trademarks to sell cryptocurrency backed NFTs on their platform and Nike not seeing any of that money.

Its a preemptive strike for Nike Betting on da longer Metaverse play down da line...

Also if you think practical wise Nike wants to be da only online game in town selling exclusive nikes and stockX (and GOAT to a lesser degree) demystifies nikes iron grip on exclusivity to their top shelf product by merely paying whatever the market is for shoes...

I could tell you right now I can give a fu*k about release dates because as long as they're on goat and stockx, sbd listings continue to flood eBay, I could pick them up whenever I want and just factoring whatever premium over initial MRP is as convenience for not dealing with bots and having to stalk that snkrs app...

This is another thing I used to proselytize on Niketalk back then about how unauthorized authentics (illegally made third shift) Nikes were becoming so prevalent that it would eventually water down da entire sneaker culture down with it....

Instead of having genuine curiosity and intrigue about why it was happening and how it was happening to better understand da situation that doofus administrator would completely shut off any sort of conversation about it.... so now da greater public who has but a mere a grain of sneaker knowledge that a typical enthusiast has can do nothing more but gleefully buy a wide variety and myriad of UAs sold on Instagram WhatsApp Alibaba eBay etc.

I don't blame them either.... if I was 13 or 14 years old now with a limited budget and zero nostalgic connection to Nike's golden era of '80s- '90s silhouettes, there's absolutely no incentive to jump thru hoops to cop from authentic channels & pay premium when i can cop a 99% comparable product for a sizable discount.

1) Don’t een care brother…

2) You would only know if I told you…

3) Watchu gon inspect the shoe on some “there’s single stitch on the left tongue that’s .000000003 centimeters off to the left”??? By then I’ve already kicked you in the face…

To all y’all payin resale from online n*ggas/consignment shops - I hope this wakes you the fu*k up…

…if you ain’t buyin directly from Nike, you should just pretty much a*sume you’ve bought reps - that’s where we are now.

Real sneaker heads can tell reps from authentics. I don't care how accurate y'all claim they are. If you can't afford real js just cop some other shoes. Stop the poser sh*t brother, it's corny.

Barely if at all.....

Its so brazen & indistinguishable these days that da conversation usually boils down to where were they purchased from, not how they look...

If you're banking on how to tell da authenticity from a pair of sneakers by "how da factory laces are tied" and "this panel is 1mm off" completely ignoring da fact that many retail Nikes suffer from da same cosmetic B-grade defects...well then you've already lost....

My advice coming from a veteran sneakerhead and Nike connoisseur? Keep your purchases to a minimum and find other hobbies that fill void that fulfills you nostalgic needs...

And therein lie’s Nike’s problem: why in the entire fu*k would I even pay MSRP, let alone resale, for the same quality at a much cheaper price?

Do I play basketball competitively and need these for my G League game cuz I’m tryna get a 10 day? Nah…

Am I a reseller that has to maintain a reputation of authenticity for my clients’ comfort? Hell nah…

Are these sh*ts just gonna touch my feet for vanity purposes and vanity purposes only? And in about a year after I’m tired of em will I just give em away to my cousins anyways?

Yup.

I.e. da path of least resistance.....

I walk by a local JD sports on da Bronx with a taped notification about a looming raffle for "Panda Dunks" on da window.... my eyes immediately rolled...n*ggas aint got time for that sh*t anymore.

I don't even blame these barbershop / cell phone stores that Moonlight selling UA's in their store because people rather pay for quick fix and comparable quality at a good price than to jump through a million hoops....

Man stop it. If you can't tell a rep from authentic then you ain't no sneakerhead. I've came across several of these allegedly 1:1 reps and could instantly tell something was off except for like two of em. But even with those I spotted the tale upon further inspection. I expect @ to be down with reps, on niketalk they said you were flexing with hollow cubans and trying to pass them off as legit.. no offense to you but it seems you have a history of faking the funk so I understand you copping reps. As for my boy Johnny I'm disappointed in you professing your love for reps my guy. A damn shame.

Lies, UA's are so prevalent that Stock X been allegedly caught selling UA's for years and people have had a collective "ho-hum" reaction to em cuz for da most part unless its been egregiously off, people don't complain....

Let's not even ignore that once you leave United States and Nike plugs become significantly more rare and hard to come by that entire countries ...fu*k cities or stores have ceded their retail territory to Chinese UA manufacturers....

Da truth of the matter is it's game over for da sneaker game... it's been really corrupted by greed, Chinese government indifference to illegal third shift manufacturers, and overall Lassie fair copyright enforcement...u combine that with Nike's insisting to cut off retail partners to absorb more of da profits for themselves that effectively freeze off large swaths of da buying population, and you got a situation where people will gleefully purchase UA's, illegal or not

You got da wrong guy buddy... I bought my Cuban link from Leon's in Miami, hell I put Nike talk on to Leon's as I was the first customer when I used to post there...you can verify that with da jewelry thread regulars over there.

Im da only person you'll ever speak to that actually owns a Jacob Jesus piece as well...

Don't be sad about da current state of affairs, just don't invest so much emotional capital into it.... after all, UA, retail, w/e, its still outsourced footwear made in Chinese factories by underpaid labor (which also explains how so much UA's ends up on our shores....workers skimpin off da top)

It is what it is.
