This is one shoe that we can actually say that Kanye was late on.
i ve been checking the thread A LOT.go check on the pictures of people buying them and show me those whites percentage before kanye wore them,and then after.i own a couple of knits,and love them(not the whites though).not even anywhere near true?lol.peace.and btw since stores got their stock lately how can kanye be late on?the one negates the other.and about the kanye issue,to each his own bros.i got my opinion you got yours.
If you have been checking, then you'll know everyone wanted the blk/wht and wht/blk around summer time, it sold out instantly once it hits the stores or online. Kanye started wearing his in November so yeah he is late and didn't start the hype because they have been selling out even before he wore it. Go ahead, go back to June and July, you'll see them selling out right away. People are looking left and right. The volts might be more popular but the wht/blk & blk/wt pairs were selling, I know because I was on this thread like a hound waiting for someone to post a link and I tried to buy but had no luck. FNL even ended up cancelling my order because everyone jumped on it. Again, go check this thread, I posted my hatred to FNL that day.
And yes, stores are getting more stock these days but that doesn't mean other store didn't get any during the summer. The low stock and people wanting them really bad resulted in it selling out but they sold out and plenty still didn't get their pair and now that stock is appearing, those who missed out are getting their pairs because they initially wanted it, not because Kanye wore them 3-4 months after they released.
