I tried trading a pair of bred lows for Melo 1s and the annoying *** high school kid wanted me to throw $ on top because the Melos were "worth more" . The local FB groups are more of a pain and a microcosm of everything wrong with this hobby.
I hate the trade game. I think if shoe's are $50-$75 apart, its equal. I think its laughable if ANYONE has to throw in $40-$50 on top. Thats just being a cheap bastard.
But when you're talking about one shoe is double the price of another shoe.............
It makes no sense. Unless they were friends. I traded Bred XI's for Royals to a homie. He doesn't like 1's and I had a extra XI. This was week after release of royals.
