I thought Rolex's cost 1k 
post #11522 of 14269

Haven't hopped on here in a minute, but just figured I'd drop a quick Kanye rant for anyone bored/interested enough to read it. I've had my RO's at my consignment store in Miami for a few months and FINALLY sold them last week. With all the scams and fakes out there, I was really only going to consignment route with these. Originally had them listed at 6k (which was the going consignment price at the time- plus this store takes 25% unlike FC's 20%). Last week, I get a call from the shop saying there's a dude in there who wants my 9.5 RO's, but he wears an 11 and is "shooting for the stars." They said dude was gonna take the insoles out and whatever, he just really wanted them. Funny thing is (and lucky for me I guess) the store is terrible at updating their site's inventory (like for real, my pair is still listed on their site as of this post). This dude saw they had an 11 on the site. I think they said he was from out of the town but I can't remember. Dude drove down to Miami Beach, only to find the 11 was gone. My 9.5 was the closest to his size, so he offered 4.5k and we settled on 5k, which left me with $3,750. I ain't mad at it.

 

I do love the shoe. Like, I really love the shoe. And honestly, I was planning on picking them up from the shop that weekend. I just figured I'd rock em, but then I got that call. Again, I think the RO's are trill as **** and I love how I was able to scoop my pair from Nike... on release day... for retail. That **** NEVER happens to me and I'll remember that day forever. But man, when it comes down to it... it's really just a shoe. A wayyyyy too hyped up shoe for me anyway. I honestly thought about when I'd actually wear them and couldn't think of a time other than a friend's yearly end of the year party, but even then, I know I'd wake up hungover the next day with drinks spilled on them and scuffs everywhere... the typical ****. I just can't keep shoes clean to save my life. I'd much rather have the money then a pair of shoes sitting in a box forever despite how rare or dope they are. If they're in a box, it doesn't ******* matter. Plus, Yeezys just don't age well, especially after a few wears.

 

If you got it like that, then yeah, cop em and rock em, but damn, I see some kids scraping by and dropping stacks on this shoe when they can do so much more with that cash or at least cop MULTIPLE kicks rather than one bright *** pair of red kicks that they can't even put together a dope outfit for As much as I love the Red Octobers, it just ain't worth it unless you're really ballin'. My pair, like almost every other pair, came with mad glue marks and those black marks in random places. I'm honestly shocked they sold for 5k.

 

Anyway, sorry for wasting your time if you made it this far. Just felt like getting that off my chest and "contributing" to this thread one last time. I hope anyone who's still looking for these can find a pair soon and on the "low," but don't kill yourself for em. This release really changed the way I view sneakers in general. I'm by no means a "sneakhead" but I do love certain shoes and fashion in general. It just seemed that once I got the Red Octobers, every other shoe was just that... a shoe. And really, that's all it is. We hype **** up so much, man. It's wild.

 

Peace //

HAHA probably could've got a little more, but I just didn't care anymore. I'm not desperate for cash at the moment and either just wanted to keep 'em or sell 'em already. I'm happy with the $3,750 in free money. And I feel ya man, I guess that's what I was trying to say, there really hasn't been a release since the RO's that has got me excited... like at all. All sneakers have finally just become sneakers. And that's how it should be. Yeezy taught me (yeah, I know the context of that line- don't care.)

Woulda keept mine in the back of my closet. Not a big fan of the RO but woulda liked to have it next to my solars

Interesting perspective. One that doesn't go over well with the "hardcore sneakerheads"..

I'm not upset when people sell their pair and I'm not upset when people wear their pair.

Only thing that gets me angry is seeing someone with multiple size runs of them or just a disgusting amount that they constantly have to display and don't wear them nor do they intend to sell them.

Different as far as I know.

One is Sammy from Queens. The other is Sami from Brooklyn. At least that's their story. I don't know them on a personal level.

I'd say pretty even. Both are pretty rare and market is dried up. Plus with all the fakes floating around, at least you'd be safe trading with him.

You're winning in that deal. He is a jackass to deal with FYI. Set up a deal with him and his terms were "but you have to do it by tonight".. Some Mark Cuban Shark Tank negotiating going on.

Needless to say we didn't do a deal

Idk if they were a full size big I would just get another insole for the shoe to help with the fit. You could get a thin insole and see if that would work
