The Y-3 drop was the ADC drop and vice versa.
Quoted and repped.
I know I for one was one of many who believed these would be released on ADC... I think, rightfully so, because the tweet said "adidas.com/kanye" that the shoes would be availabe there.. especially since the PB's were released on that same URL.
Yesterday had a lot of people ****** up. I think Adidas should have tweeted something along the lines of "In-stores now" AT A VERY MINIMUM ...even if they just said that..a lot less people would have been burned...They played the hype up as much as possible and had people glued to their computers for no reason.
If I had to sum up yesterday it would be " fool me once, shame on me..." TBD lol
