***Finally an Official Baller sneaker thread ($300 minimum)*** - Page 1337

Just wondering, do you guys pay full retail??
post #20042 of 22222
Depends. I've paid retail for about half of my "baller" sneakers.
post #20043 of 22222

Pay full retail unless they're at Barneys because I get a discount.

Nice hookups

It will only work if they have better prices and/or price matching. The concept is interesting, in that it's essentially an internet store that has a storefront. The strongest point that is not mentioned is that it really gets their branding out there. Without the storefront, they are just any of a thousand similar stores that you may or may not find online, depending on serendipity and how much google likes you. With the storefront and good PR, you are ahead of the curve already. However, the bad part is that people can easily go on their phone, and buy from a cheaper place - and these days, you can get anything shipped to you, from anywhere in the world, in a matter of days. They need to pricematch. Otherwise, they have a business model that will only last as long as it takes for some high end retailers to get their heads out of their ass and get their stock online, something that is happening more and more.

The B&M, as mentioned earlier, will drive a specific type of shopper, but it's unclear whether that shopper will be willing to wait 3 days for something they could walk out of the store wearing. Internet is about price and speed. It's possible that these guys have combined the best of both worlds. It's also possible that they've pretty much screwed the pooch, and gotten rid of the best of both B&M and online shopping.

Just copped these today: OG Margiela High-Tops (second version) size EU 44 for $129.

Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, R1.1.1.M1

Found them on ebay.co.uk listed as "Men's Trainers".
Guess I got lucky with the bad advertising because only one person was bidding against me.
And before anybody says that there's probably something wrong with them, I got additional pictures from the seller and they're legit,
pretty much brand new.

^ there's probably something wrong with those "trainers" Superfly. What kind of training are you going to use them for?
post #20048 of 22222
129?

Damn. Think I paid 400 for mine. How do you know they're legit? I'll be honest toe box seems a little off. Too elongated

Really? I prefer my clothes a little lived in. Especially underwear and jeans. Need a nice worn in cockbulge and cock fading to compensate for my Asian penis.

@ dirty rob It's a matter of saving a shit load of money.

I, like most people, don't have $700 to drop on a pair of shoes; so I buy a lightly used pair, clean the whole shoe inside and out, and they're good as new in my eyes.
I personally don't mind a used shoe as long as it's been cared for. The saving $600 part kind of makes the "slightly used" part irrelevant in my eyes.

@ Kid Nickels As I mentioned, I requested additional pictures from the seller before bidding on them and the shoes are in great shape.
Also, if there happens to be something wrong with them, I'll just use eBay's Buyer Protection. I've used it before for a refund, it's not a big hassle imo.

it's cool Superfly... I was just joking around. "Trainers" being all Brit-ish and all. I hope they work for you and enjoy.

Ah, I got you. I wasn't picking up what you were putting down. Sorry bro! laugh.gif

I'll post some of my own pictures when I get them. Just have to wait a bit because they're coming in from Manchester.

OG and "OG 2?" lol8[1].gif

post #20055 of 22222
They're both so good! I would wear one of each on my feets if I had them both. dozingoff.gif

I guess we can call the newer ones the "OG 2s" lol.
I mean, they're practically the same shoe other than the vamp and the material/color changes.
