Yes reds will be the same
Allocation for foams has been cut in half it just under half with gold foams and red foams
Obsidian foams the allocation to stores(nyc/nj area)
Even a smaller footlocker got like 300 men's pairs
That's A LOT granted its a nicer color way than a ton of foams past 2 years but even still as people know pairs are for the most part readily available at most locations still
With gold foams those same stores that got 300 obsidian
Only got about 130-150 golds
If even that many
For example Staten Island only the house of hoops and the Footaction at the mall
The Footaction didn't even receive a size 13 or 14 at all the largest size they got was a 12 and it was like 1 pair
The HOH had a single size 13 and oddly enough 2 size 14
Those stores combined had about 115 pairs
Now those same stores for another example had 300 pair for obsidian(HOH) and 200 pair(Footaction)
Granted Staten Island is the worst market in the new york New Jersey area to purchase shoes at retail based on allocation
But it's a great example of the difference between style allocation
Now my thing is with lower allocation for gold and red and those gone fishing looking like a QS
Will that drive the foam hype up?
Also will Nike keep the allocation lower going forward?
