    Jesus. One of the kids in my class this year is like this...and then there are 20 others who try to be, but just can't...its all about having the cash...look at where that kid lives. The kid who is the big time sneaker head comes from money, they kids who can't get in on the game but want to, don't. Just like life I guess.

    Not that different from what goes on in SF, amirite? I mean, spoo bought a Ferrari from flipping swag of a different nature.

    Although I'm skeptical that this kid's strategy will always result in a profit...he's reselling from a reseller most of the time, unless he keeps finding idiots who always sell below market value

    RE: resellers and sneakers. I'm not mad at them one bit. I did it a bit in high school and college. There were a handful of OG cats who paid for their college tuition via reselling. The worst I've seen was a scuffle at NTLA during the Espos and Pharrell Dunks in 2004. Came back empty handed too.

    It's been getting too serious in the last years with kids getting stuck up and even worse, killed.

    i just wish nike/jordan would make more shoes of the pairs I do want so that it wasn't so difficult.

    i only have an issue with the resellers that buy to make like $20 bucks after ebay fees, that's when it's annoying.

    the foamposites are horrible.

    The best thing about this is there are some great shoes that you can get on sale since all the kids are looking for the limited stuff.

    the dunks that just came out in the jordan bred and blue/black colors were an awesome buy. They look like the jordans and have the same silohuette and nobody knows until they really looks at them.

    I really think Nike is trolling these sneaker heads with some of the crap they are releasing

    And it's hilarious that these "yeezys" are getting so much money on the resale market. Easily the worst looking sneaker design I've seen in the last 15 years

    Looks like the multicolor FK Lunar1's are starting to hit boutiques and ebay (at a $100+ premium).

    I'll wait for general release, I think it shouldn't be too hard to find if you jump on it.
