But really we did it to ourselves, not nike. I remember when I logged into NT after what seemed like a while and dudes were talking about 800 this and 700 that for some damn 1s. I understand that they're limited and the better raw materials used must have cost nike a whopping 30 bones instead of the usual $20. personally speaking I still felt that $500+ resale was way too much for a $140 shoe so I never entertained that with MY money but to my surprise a lot of YALL in this thread was dropping bread with a smile on y'alls face talking bout "my royals were 800 and then I talked another guy down to 600 and doubled!"
When I saw that dudes were clapping for them types of purchases and lil 13 year olds was charging each other $400 for galaxy kdIVs, I knew the game was fudged up. Lol I'm really not hating at the expendable income needed to buy shoes at such high resale prices, but just sayin a couple years later nike charging us $700 for packs and low top retros are $170 retail.
