On top of what Big J said, this ^
Jordan's been getting so whack to me and it's not even like I've hated everything released this year, but when you're a brand that's selling out week after week and people look to you for something that'll "set them apart" from the rest and make them feel special, once that product doesn't move like it used to, it's done. The hype at least, done. Price hikes every 6 months, year after year, and more releases by the month. You're forcing garbage colors at us at increased prices and expecting it to go smoothly because you're just that big, but there ARE other options. Jordan Brand looks mad desperate bombarding people with lots of color ways in shorter windows of time at increased prices. We can tell you know the bubble is gonna pop and you're just trying to cash and at the same time, your price range is getting outta hand so people give up and move on to something else. I've ben getting so into air maxes I've been wanting to sell some of my least favorite Jays because I could get my favorite color ways of other shoes, even with a discount, for the same price and also not fall into the oversaturated Jordan market.
