How would it burst? Most people still missed out yesterday. A lot of the people who did get them, will just resell them.

And how many people are going to go without and sit around hoping and praying for a restock in a few months?

I think maybe it won't burst just yet. I see it happening though. They continue raising prices and then start re-releasing shoes weeks or months later and the ppl on this board, and perhaps elsewhere, start to catch on. On top of that, they're releasing shoes that are bringing ppl out of retirement.

I was wondering how they would try to curb these resellers mainly because that's money they're losing out on. True, they may not care because they still get paid but come now, that's naive. They're here to make money.

JB and Nike don't care about resellers. They make their money once they sell them to the stores. Resellers help them sell out of their product and increase demand and help advertise their sneakers.

Resellers just allowed them to know what people are willing to pay. That's why prices are rising.

Finally some sanity.  If anything, JB loves resellers.  How exactly is their bottom line being affected when 95% of the retros still sell out?  They know that they can get away with the price increases because people will willingly pay $250+ on the secondary market.

They're greedy. They see they're losing money on the secondary market. That's how the bottom line is affected.

I couldn't agree more.
post #727 of 5524
I think they care about resellers. But I agree with you that resellers not only gauge the market for JB but they also help them set higher price lines. The 88's have officially ushered in the 200.00 retro market that Jordan brand has been trying to crack for a minute but the newer signature releases were sitting at 200.00 but now they just popped the 200.00 cherry in a big way.

its funny that everyone thinks these restocks will cause resellers to go away it might help resale prices go down but i bet half of the ppl who copped yest will go back n resell those as well..yea it helps alot of ppl who missed out the first time and will hold on to their pairs to rock em but then again i think there are more resellers out there than ppl think

If people copped these to resell, they're not gonna make anything. If people weren't buying them for $250 before the restock, they def aren't paying that price when the market becomes flooded with these in the next few days.

Wow no payment issues...!! I got a pair of Bentley Crawfish and also was able to use WC reward.

I been having major payment errors with FNL... Specially yesterday when I was trying to checkout WC4, Bred13, and Playoff 12 within 1 minute after they tweeted the restock.

I've been hearing this Reseller argument up here for some time. So a billion dollar company with huge marketing, sales and research departments needs the resellers to tell them what to charge? People that make this argument somehow forget that nike does make shoes other than jordan brand, and the prices on those are continually rising as well.
post #749 of 5524
Only size 14 left, but they are moving now. FNL had more than 25 pairs in that size unlike others.
