I'd rather strike out at retail stores than to pay over retail for an early release/pre-order that runs the risk of being an unauthorized (aka FAKE) pair.
Having the peace of mind of getting them from a legit retail store is worth more to me than securing them "early".
There's always going to be multiple chances to score a pair for retail.
Just need to be patient.
EDIT: I guess people were quick to forget the whole debacle black friday 2014 when NTer were questioning the legitimacy of pre-order sites for the Black Infrared 6s.
For sure, point taken brother. My thing is to only buy from resellers that actually live in Memphis. Being that this is the Nike Headquarters location and the very factory that when you order from nike.com where the shoes are sent from I'm not as worried ya know. They buy the shoes from factory and resell em, you may ask why don't you just do that? Well you gotta be plugged in to that type of thing which is easier said than done. So at times I'll buy from the reseller to copp a grail that I can't afford to miss out on its just preference in that regard. To each his own I just want us all to be able to eat come Friday! Bless
