Yeah, it's usually one shoe in one colorway on release dates.

Nice pick-ups you got.

I was feeling lucky until I didn't get what I wanted and had to settle on a fallback shoe.

The fallback shoe I got is one that a lot of people really wanted though.

I'm happy I got the 8's online though. Can't wait til it arrives.

Full size run of:
Bred 4
Bred 11
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,


I thought you were against resellers?

I passed on the bred 4's and 11's earlier this year, probably would have copped those, cool grey 9's are also nice.

I have DS Fire red 5's - size 12.5, would be willing to trade if anyone is interested.

I'm against buying from them, but I don't mind taking advantage of someone who doesn't have a problem with it

I think I'm going to go ahead and keep them though.

I was also thinking of selling through consignment with Flight Club, but I don't know how fast they can get them sold.

The LeBron line is catching up to Jordan.

Why do you think that?

Last year, Jordan Brand earned $2 billion to LeBron's $300 million.

The LeBron line may cut into that gap a little bit this year, but I don't think it will be significant enough to even mention.

Referring to LeBron's shoes by their number order isn't as instantly recognizable to the general public as Jordan's either, and there aren't as many treasured models. MJ had the shoe game on lock by his 3rd shoe with those Spike Lee commercials. Connected with the public in a huge way.

Any of you get pop-up notifications from Nike Store on Twitter?

I was 30 minutes too late for their restock yesterday, but they had several models of Jordan's up for grabs as well as some LeBron's, Kobe's, etc that I wasn't paying attention to.

- '88 Cement 3's
- Black Grapes
- White Grapes
- Bugs Bunny 8's
- Playoff 8's
- Black Toe 1's
- He Got Game 13's
- Black Bottom 9's

Was trying hard for a Black Toe 1 or He Got Game 13 but no such luck. Sizes kept popping up randomly due to canceled orders, etc.

Black Bottom 9's look good as hell in person.

There are still a few sizes for anyone who might interested (Screwston, hateraid, Shade, CelticBaller). Probably will be gone by the time you see this though.

Yea I was about 8 minutes too late (as always) when I saw Nike tweet that. Only thing I wanted were those OG 1s and missed out.

One good thing I've heard is that Nike.com has banned some people who they know we're using "bots" to get their orders placed. So now it might be more of a level playing field when it comes to releases on Nike
