Wasn't trying to start anything but honestly I just don't have the time these days to camp on NT or euro sites to try and cop at retail. Back when I didn't have a job and could sit at my computer all day, sure, but not anymore. I've relegated myself to less cops and only copping the ones I really need at resell, so I'm not exactly saying that i'm balling trying to cop at resell but I just cut out all the BS purchases that I used to make and just buy the stuff i absolutely need. I like how NT emails you now when someone quotes you. haha goodluck to u guys trying to cop at retail, if anyone finds an 8/8.5 and wants to let it go, hit me up.
You most likely will be able to find a small size like that on the secondary market for a very decent price in time. Aussie's in lower sizes were selling for 220-240ish on leBay back when I was searching for my own size a lot. It's also easy to talk them down a little as well from a higher price point.
