1st time I ever stooped so low, and I'm never doing that again. Only shoot for 1 pair each year from now on. No longer going for multiples.


Most of the people standing in line were hispanic though. Only 2 black dudes.
You in Mexico?

Cali.

I would estimate the line was 75% hispanic and 25% asian aside from the 2 blacks.

Like 3 middle easterners too (Lebanese or Armenian, I'm guessing).

Bred 13
Fire Red 5
White Grape 5
Cool Grey 9
He Got Game 11
White Black Red 11 low

I'm glad more people didn't know about it before I did. I had to wait 2 hours in line behind like 30 people, and by the time I got in they only had Bred 13, White Grape 5, Cool Grey 9 and He Got Game 11 in my size.


I went with the White Grapes, but I'm gonna sell them on-line.

Really, really wanted the Bred 4 and Bred 11 to actually wear, but they were both gone before I reached the store.

We were allowed to buy 1 for each pair, and some dude in a suit at the front of the line walked out with a box of each pair in his size,

Glad you finally got the grapes.

Thanks man.



I thought of you and the store you mentioned as I was getting them.

LOL, pristine mint condition. I might just go ahead and wear them. Not sure yet. Still debating if I should re-sell at a premium since I'm not too fond of whites and icy soles anymore.

Just that one. The local champs near me gives out guaranteed tickets a few days before the release. So I don't have to deal with raffles or anything like that. Just have to hope all tickets weren't taken up, hypebeast don't like 8s so this wasn't a stressful release

Hopefully I can get my first guaranteed ticket at the nearby Champs next time. They start on Wednesday like all the other places do with their raffles, I assume? They don't even post the info, so it might vary.

Are there any other releases this year you're interested in? I want to be done for the year, but I really love the idea of getting Black Shadow 1, Bred 1, and/or Taxi 11.

I'm still a fiend who wants to quit but is undergoing withdrawal symptoms.

How many foams do you own?
I own 5 pairs of foams, wasn't able to get the last one though, been having terrible luck online.

Foams I own
Metallic Reds
Royal Blues
Crimson
Beat up Coppers
Stealth

I can't get over seeing that dude walk out of Champs with 8 boxes of different Jordan's. That must be some kind of mall shoe store record, because there probably hasn't been another unique circumstance where they had that number of J's in stock at once.

Even though I'm not into foams, I'd rather have all those you have over this latest release. It was a weak one. Probably better off waiting 'til the next anyway.

How'd you do with the Jordan's online? I was able to get a pair, and I have the worst online luck, it seems.
