This shit is NOT ok. Now, I'm as against snitching as Carmelo's homies in B-More, but Jordan Brand needs to get this shit to end. How hard would it be, if they wanted to? Key words "IF THEY WANTED TO". Obviously, they don't give two shits about the customer, as long as they're getting their money.

I mean sneaker collecting is an art.. without sneaker resellers there would be No demand for the sneaker. thus making it any old average sneaker that would probly end up on clearance.. All were doing is leveling the Playing field. giving a rarity to the shoe if you will, and the truth is this can't be stopped and if it is stopped there will be No more sneaker game.

News flash ,the regular re-seller gig is dead. The actual stores are selling them to their workers and claiming they are not getting the sneakers. They get the discount and overcharge you. #Fact. Buying sneakers is officially political. You cant anything about it. Talked to a guy in Baltimore about it. They also hoard the elites socks. He told me they had and order of 150 Olympic elite USA socks and he bought 50 and held the other for his boy. You would never even know they was there . Store doesn't care as long as they get sold. Yes of course he is related to the store owner. cant say if most of the real re-sellers are but it certainly is the case in this one. I can say this with confidence because nothing will be done about it. At the end of the day as long as the inventory is selling it doesn't matter. These sites will never give you the real stories and they rarely can even give you the amount of these so-called limited sneaker. But you bet your grandmas behind they know. All you readers whom want clarity about the real problems, don't hold your breath. You wont get it from these sites, their aim is more sales. I'm not mad at that at all just opening eyes.

These are the re-sellers that make the money...the ones that get them first. The little people that get 2 pair on release day are not selling that second pair in most cases for a whole lot of profit.  The little guys just end up with extras kicks. Nike wins.... all products sold.  The guys do all these articles on re-sellers but they really know how the beast works. They are just pulling our tails with these articles. Trust me its a much bigger story and the re-sellers are a small part. Lets get some article about whats really going down!!  Its all about sales. I Think they are making more j's now look how much restock there has been. Hypies are buying more sneaks but are they selling more?...i don't know. I'm starting to question things more. With the last GMP release I know at least 10 people whom got two or more sets. But only like 2 or 3 actually sold a pair. despite all the people whom complained about not getting them nobodies buying not even for 450 which is not a crazy price. I think the hype is coming from somewhere other than the hypies...imjs ... Idont have proof but somethings not right here.

PSA -  Spend $3,400 (20 pairs of raptors) and you to can get over $3,800 in return that can go towards next hyped release.....it's easy money (even if you do have a job).  Never going to stop until Nike meets demand and needy people refuse to pay over $210 after failing to score a pair.  I've personally never bought over 3 of the same colorway (i'm just not that f'n greedy),  but I can see why the reselling game growing.

Thats not true in most cases. I still cant find and "hare" Jordans in my size under $300. Thats more than double what they cost. So please explain how that is leveling the playing field. The game is much different today. because 10 years ago you could simply step in a store 6 months later and find most of these sneakers that are selling out in minutes. If an child doesn't have enough money to cop at a certain moment and you decide to sell him a pair of sneakers for a 200 profit. please tell me how is leveling the field? Re-sellers don not make demand bro your confused. Your in it for yourself not the buyers. If a buy two set of sneakers and I want to flip em i'm not gonna make up the bull ish like that. If you want to flip them flip them . If its an art you will never flip them...unless its hard time and in those cases the price usually isn't triple. I would sell to if some one wants what i have but i'm not gonna claim i'm leveling the field that foolish. I helping my pockets. I got my seven today and I was 2nd in line. The guy whom was 3rd in line didn't get his size because the store claimed they didn't have them. And of course they're were people running around the store with the size 12 for double the price waiting for someone so desperate. The look on that kids face was devastating he waited with me for 3 hours. I'm gonna make profit but i'm not raping anyone unless I have some 5+ year old rare sneakers. After five years i'm tripling. Can't wait til people realize they are not remaking the gold pack...its sooo pretty.

 @GyanShieldsdad Sheesh if you know people with 10 pairs that aren't selling not even for 450 hook me up! I'd love a pack at retail or a little more lol.

 @GyanShieldsdad I was told by someone on the inside that a lot of early releases are B stock.  I wouldn't be surprised that those were part of that.

 @JayMarquez The guy that has them for 450 has a size 8. The rest are at 600 including myself. And I know several people that collectively have more than 10 pair. That is as a group we have 10 pair.

 @Gatorace  @ChaplainSD Hey that was pretty good thanks. Seems Nike has nothing to do with that...seems more of the shady employees. That problems could easily be eliminated. Just put up cameras to watch the workers...Thanks for that vid though bro.

 @GyanShieldsdad  @ChaplainSD Yeah from what I know, these early releases are "early run" or "first production run" so that Nike/Jordan Brand can inspect the shoes and make improvements for the official release. Those JACKED UP Bred 11's are part of the first run that were supposed to be "destroyed"......but Nike being the greedy company they are, they sell it to these resellers.
