Because they can!

Nike uses these things as trial balloons to see just how much they have dudes by the balls.

They know damn well that the Penny posites wouldn't come close to selling out at even $200, so that implicitly means that when these smoke, they'll know that it would be no problem to ask for $300 for a well executed Foam with a bit of hype behind it. ...Hell, they know that a number of people are essentially paying $500 for one pair of shoes and don't even want the other one.

They're pushing something people don't want on the market - generating a sell out on something they couldn't move otherwise, and at the same time, they are getting permission from the public to further price gouge them in the future. ...All the while dudes are lining up in the street, buying bots, fighting one another, and bragging about having the opportunity to be taken advantage of.

This isn't even hating; this is just the ugly truth.

It's good strategy on Nike's end tho. Just gotta pass on this release but it would be cool if these came out in July for a 4th of July release too

500 dollars saved. It hurts to cause I'm a magic fan and those shooting stars are the closet thing we are going to get a P.E. Is what it is

Lil Penny Posites were supposed to retail for $180 if I'm not mistaken. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Yeah, it's a great strategy.

A fool and his money are soon parted - if you ain't initiating that parting, you ain't doing your job.

310 for the packs, IIRC.

And, remember, when the packs dropped, some of the models hadn't been retro-ed for a few years and were priced even less than 140 from their last release. AJ1s were 100; 3s were 125, etc. That was another reason they did the two models that equal 23 thing, because people were used to the AJ1 being like 100, so to get 310 for a pack with that shoe in it, they had to pair it with a pair that retailed closer to 200, even if people didn't even want that other pair. Once the packs finished, they could wipe the slate clean and basically say that everything is at least 150.

The once state of the art basketball shoe designed for Penny Hardaway from the late 1990s became a Hypebeast fashion shoe........TSE.

You know the fiends ain't trying to hear that.

I just was searching for paranorman foams on ebay and saw astronomical resale prices of 4k now. Now that's pretty got damn crazy if you ask me.

I wanted the shooting stars, but not this silly "pack". I dont care for those penny posites nor that huge box. I live in NYC and closet space is precious.

I'll keep some cash aside to see if I can cop the shooting stars alone.

Nike kind of flopped with the zoom rookies and hyperposites so they are shoving down our throats these penny posites with this pack.
