Re: Air Jordan Shoes

Sneakerheads will spend some serious coin on these type of shoes, one of the guys I worked with on my last job made some mad money compared to the majority of the office (I sold LED fixtures/lights in an inside sales role) and he would travel on his lunch hour to get tickets for the shoes. It was interesting learning a bit about the culture of folks who travel from store to store trying to find limited edition shoes in a size they could wear (he mostly bought to keep/wear not sell).

The ones that came out last weekend are $500+ at ebay and people are buying them!



I wanted the Black Cement 3 that came today at 7am and I checked exactly at that time and there were sold out before I had a chance to add them to my cart!

Pricks probably uses bots or software or the same dorks who hog all the classic nintendos probably took them all.

Re: Air Jordan Shoes

I recently bought a pair of ďNo ResaleĒ Jordan 1. Everything looks good, the shoes and box have a matching product code that reflect the actual product code of the shoe. But Iím wondering, mine say Red/Ivory-Black instead of Sailor/Black-Varsity Red. Iíve seen others that say black/red-white and are authenticed but idk

Re: Air Jordan Shoes

I like those but Iíd never wear them.

Iíve spent more than the cost of Jordans on dress shoes but those I expect to last a decade if not more.

Re: Air Jordan Shoes

Love those Bred AJ4. But I clearly got a fucking problem because according to my last post I went from eight AJ and twenty total shoes a year and a half ago to 25 pair of Jordans alone.

I was able to grab the 11 concords from Nike's SNKRS app a few months ago -- didn't think I'd ever get a pair of those since I refuse to buy from resellers, so that was pretty cool.

I don't think your shoe addiction is as bad as mine

Re: Air Jordan Shoes

I saw they had some in 15 (my size) for awhile on SNKRS after they'd sold out of everything else, and was this close to pulling to trigger on 'em, but decided I didn't want to push my luck with my wife so I passed.

Re: Air Jordan Shoes

You could have bought them and sold them for $300 at Ebay

Re: Air Jordan Shoes

Self-lacing is my next pair but I do not like the color scheme. Should have more colors available. Store wasn't too helpful.

I figured if I had bought them even with the intention of flipping them, I would've just ended up keeping 'em because I have no self control.

Re: Air Jordan Shoes

A store has opened up nearby that only sells vintage shoes, mostly Air Jordans and the like priced at crazy amounts. I wonder if the market for that is big enough to support a retail shop.

Re: Air Jordan Shoes

The new releases usually get snapped up before they are posted online for sale and maybe that guy is making a fortune with this shop.

Flight Center has been operating in NYC for at least a decade. Keep in mind they could, even in early days, not only keep the store afloat but also have a live DJ to spin music for customers.

Flight Center? I've heard of Flight Club that sells rare shoes but never Flight Center in NYC.

But then again I'm not a big sneaker head.
