that would be conveinent...but your wrong. the reason these were almost gone was because they went up on footlocker.com an hour before they did on eastbay.
Everybody in here knows that Eastbay.com and
Footlocker.com both belong to the same Parent Company; FootLocker, Inc.
If you have ever ordered from both websites (like I have), you'll notice that it comes
from the same address (Wausau,WI), and the same warehouse. When it comes
to their products, each website is allowed to sell a certain quatity of a
particular product. which explains why footlocker.com sometimes is
out of stock of a certain item, while eastbay.com is not and vice-versa. It also explains why
eastbay.com sometimes has items that footlocker.com doesn't have. Think of them like Nike and JB.
There are two different ways of ordering from their websites, you can place
your orders online, or you can call a toll-free number and place your
orders over the phone.
When the AJ XIII (flints) came out, they were on footlocker.com at 12:01am (est)
and on eastbay.com at 1:01am (est) most of the orders eastbay.com received were through their phone
ordering system before
they were up on their website, by the time they were up on their website,
most of the popular sizes were gone.
and if you dont believe me, you can call eastbay.com yourself and ask them to explain this to you. I am sure an eastbay employee will be glad to do so.
