basically, you're looking at this like a jordan/nike release.. and that's not the case. not trying to come off as an !+%, but if you've got to think THAT MUCH about these shoes, just pass man. this isn't a "sneakerhead" shoe by any means. it's a "luxury trainer" or whatever you want to call it, and it's not going to be one of those things that in 2 years, you can sling for $1700-2000 and make a little dough. Matter of fact, you probably would have to go down to like $600-700 and sell them as "VNDS" just to get one of these young kids to bite. A grown man isn't going to buy your used $1200 kicks for $1000 used, because like I said, this isn't a "sneakerhead" sneaker.
Now... maybe in 25 years, because it is a luxury brand, you can sell them because it's the first sneaker ever done in collaboration with an entertainer, and some Louis Vuitton collector might buy them, but chances are, anyone that hardcore would probably already have them.
In the end, up to you... but I think if you're buying these with anything else but "I can part with this $1100 and not even re-think it"... like I said, I'd pass. That's just me, though.
Oh, and BTW, I do own them, worn them like twice, and I'm fine with it. And while people look at them, make a comment every now and then... I get ten remarks when I wear my Yeezys for every one I get for the Jaspers... just to put things in perspective.
