I stopped buying roshe's when they started to go a different route with that line. They got everyone thirsty for the simple Anthracites, Iguana's, Siren Reds, Calypsos, Big Red and then when the thirst was at an all time high, bam, ugly af cw's came out, and people ate them up.
The way Nike handled Roshe's was brilliant.
You're right, it was brilliant. I feel you on the direction thing. I love my Sport Reds and Sirens. A half size too big so I don't wear them as much anymore, but all the tie die and camo and **** that they have on them now is ridic...it's appealing to the high-schooler nike high socks pulled all the way up and basketball shorts crowd, which is the exact crowd that picks up a shoe as soon as it becomes popular and widely availible. Personally, I don't really wanna associate with that crowd, and if something like these or Retro 1 OGs were as available as everyone would want them to be, we'd all be roped in with them.
This is true but for probably a very very small %.
Most of the people who were able to grab a pair will never have an on foot pic.
Most people post "just copped"
When they really should save that post until they've flipped the shoes and then post...."just sold them for 300%return"
True, sad but true. Mine'll be going right to feet
