Hey guys, first post. I was one of the lucky ones on 2/9 .. actually really lucky - I got the Japan Link and my friend from Japan helped me order ROs. My package finally cleared customs and arrived today so I am going to post pictures of what the Japan release looks like.
Finally a relevant story... congrats !!!
There was nothing "hard" or "difficult" about this release. You just had to be at the right place when Nike sent out the tweet, be it with your mobile phone in hand or on your computer.
Mine sold this week, but they are "waiting on funds to clear". I know they send out weekly sales reports, but when I saw my size missing for a few days, I couldn't contain myself and had to email. They said it was "reserved for an online order, pending payment clearance", and if funds cleared, they would be sold...if not, they go back up.
I'll be checking for the email, because I had never set or changed my price (FC set it @ $6,000), so I'm assuming that's what they sold for.
as long as you use different CC/billing/shipping info & different Nike accounts, you will have no issues regardless if placing via same IP address. The only time they will connect the dots is when you use an early link and get your order canceled, then any other legit order you placed that same day will also get canceled...
I shipped them to FC (I live in MO), they received them on 2/21. Wanted to do a local trade, but no market here...
Size was 11.5. They now have one up on the site in LA ($4,250), but from Monday through yesterday evening 11.5 was showing OOS, when previously they only had 1 available (in NY where mine were shipped to) @ $6,000, so I was assuming they were mine. When I emailed them, they confirmed that.
Yea, I hope the sale goes through, but I'm not sweating it if it doesn't. NEVER expected them to sell this quickly, or even for that high of an amount. I got my DB5s, made my $185 donation to OHSU, which is all I really wanted in the first place. Anything else will go for other missed shoes, and things for my son and soon to be daughter (wife is pregnant...super excited).
