You assume that there were a lot more RO available online that Plats or Solars? Come on. That doesn't even makes sense, for me at least. But that's my opinion.
PS: @DJ Proto J
your pics a few pages back were absolutely great! Glad you got your pair.
On the contrary, everything else is just speculation, but PO's word is not.
It's not my place to say how he is connected, but just know that he is, and he is not speculating.
For the record, RO's released in all the same places you listed, just all online. And compared to the last release, it def seemed like a lot more NTers got pairs this time than last (just more seemed interested in selling than keeping).
I actually like the fact that they all released online for retail cuz it kept the camping madness out of the equation (cuz generally the only people capable of camping that long are little kids and people with no jobs)... So these boutiques couldn't have people camping for days only to mark them up to $1,500 +, like last time. I'd be mega pissed if I camped for days and still had to pay rape.
At the same time tho, I kinda would rather some of these boutiques who are struggling, who jump thru crazy hoops to have a Nike account, constantly getting stuck with crap Nike's that don't sell, have a bone thrown to them by Nike and get to make some money. A lot of boutiques are honest people who work hard and deserve the come up, where as sneaker heads making money off of these put in no work, they just happened to see the tweet and act in time, from the comfort of their home or phone, resulting in making thousands of dollars (the only ones I am happy for are obviously those who are keeping them to wear, and those who flipped them to cop some releases they've missed out on)...
