    I have a 9yr old so NT is not too confusing. I could see how it would be for someone thats not around young folks on the regular.

    I still need to be educated on some things.

    You just got weigh-in what you like more, which CPs (common projects?) is it? If it's the achilles, you can always get those on discount at the end of the season. Not sure if they are still making those.

    You also have to consider the the condition.

    Oh ok, but im the opposite common projects they never do it for me in my size 12. So I have a couple pair Ive never worn.

    I was wondering why he would offer this pair for a shoe thats more expensive. I figured it had some sort of story behind it.

    Just resell price really but it's only equal if the chukkas are DS.

    But like you said, if the CPs are just sitting there gathering dust and you'd get more wear from the chukkas, then go for the chukkas and maybe ask him to add cash?

    No I have they are the Van's style. His are brand new 12.5. He was really amping them up as if they were really great. Kept calling them some name cant remember. I was just trying to get my daughter and get out of there.

    You already know I get it turnt up in the office, bro bro.

    Any of you guys remember the Nike Presto line around 2001 or so? I remember they were widely popular and more or less were the Frees before the Frees. You think Nike would retro those? Since they retro everything nowadays.

    This right here folks is what separates normal resellers from Nike resellers.

    Huh..... did I say it was bad, I'm sure I didn't, I said it's a business and as long as people are willing to pay the mark up, the mark up will be there.

    I was skeptical at first on the chukkas, but they grew on me. They are easily one of the most comfortable shoes I've worn. That color goes for a premium because all the recent colors that have come out are blah. You also have to consider size 12.5 is not an easy size to get, let alone that colorway. If you're not set on that color, you might want to consider waiting for the next batch to come out. I'm personally looking forward to this one.

    Flipping sneakers is a backwards ass hustle and you'll never make any real money if you consider $200 or whatever you make flipping a pair of Jordans a "come-up".

    Yep. I liked the Shady Milkman, lol.

    It's not a bad side hustle if you're able to land 10 pairs of say the DB Foams at retail and flip them for $800 or whatever it is they go for.

    If you're flipping on a pair to pair basis then I fully agree with you.
