This is sad. Folks buyin up all these pairs Do Not have the money up front for this dirtball rat-infested "business"... they have CREDIT CARDS. They do not buy to rock their pairs for the love of the shoe game Nor to hook up several buddies, they buy for the greed of makin money, simple as that. Worst part is as stated: THE BUYERS WHO BUY FROM RAPING RESELLER THUGS. Don't like it? Don't buy. THERE ARE NO VICTIMS HERE! No One MADE you purchase a pair or pack of shoes! Don't bitch about Resellers when you can just not buy from em! Does it suck that they gobble up all these pairs and those of us who want em & strike out can't get em in part because of these d-bags? Yeah, it sucks, there's no hidin that. But hold onto your buck$ and let the bottom fall out. Don't give in & you'll get yours. PATIENCE IS KEY! I can honest to God say I've never been taken from a reseller. Most I've paid for a shoe I've missed out on over several years of doing this is $20 over retail for Cavs IVs from a local who hooked me up (thru SC, actually) after strikin out online & in line. I, for one, am proud of that fact and intend to keep it that way. Haven't bought a Jordan since & am not looking forward to new releases like I used to. There are just too many older, better quality pairs that are worth paying a little extra for to get a hold of versus these garbage re-retros and hype packs that won't hold up over the test of time. Didn't even try for a GMP, as I had a charity event to attend. Went to Nike later that day, all pairs gone. I went in for GB Air Safaris tho, which are of significantly high quality (equivalent to quality found in pairs from 10_ years ago), ESPECIALLY for $90. I walked out with a pair constructed at 5-8 times higher quality than any Jordan I've scooped in the last year+. Dude there confirmed that Nike had to ship back nearly their entire size runs they received for the Varsity Red IVs, as the QC was so terrible, they couldn't sell em! How did those ever even make it to the US in that condition, let alone all the way to retail stores before getting caught?? This is what JB has become, a brand that coughs up garbage quality at higher prices than ever and they fly off the shelves thanks to resellers who FIND BUYERS otherwise, we'd all STOP BUYING, recognize the price we're paying for the quality we're getting isn't there & let em all sit til they go on sale, at the very least. Crazy to think that the 1s released in 2001 were all numbered releases (Royals, Ban's), yet here they are releasing again. So much for a limited number pair...newer, overpriced, poor quality shit re-retros are set to drop again! And to think those retros sat so long at just $80 retail, they eventually hit outlets for less than that! Now they sell for $250-350 DS! What changed? HYPE! When you miss a pair, do what's suggested below several times: wait for a hook-up at a close to or at-retail price or JUST MOVE ON! It's not like they're not gonna drop again or get forgotten about down the road & something different comes along to create more & more hype. It's just not worth the effort any more. Wait for the market to settle down...may take years but the more of us that hold onto our $$ the shorter it will take. This can only last so long, people. History repeats!
