    Air Jordan 1 High “Black Toe” – 2013 NO buying,selling-trading

    Just kidding with you man. No disrespect intended. :-) You're right actually; I was stating the obvious.  I guess that there wasn't much of a point beyond the fact that I'm confused by the masses of people trying to buy as a "preorder" that which they could buy afterwards as a straightforward...

    Air Jordan 1 High “Black Toe” – 2013 NO buying,selling-trading

    I'll make it easy for you: Firstly, I'm not a "point." Secondly, even if you do think that I am a "point," do you have to be so discourteous to the indefinite article "a," by completely ignoring its placement within your sentence?  Thirdly, maybe you're telling me that my first name is...

    Air Jordan 1 High “Black Toe” – 2013 NO buying,selling-trading

    People should stop talking about their "preorders" and go ahead and call it what it is...resale price.  "Preorder" used to be a small premium you paid over retail to ensure that you'd receive the shoe. The retailer enjoyed the benefit of not having to sit on inventory; consumers would have...

    2013 Black/Gold Jordan 1 OG

    With all due respect, if you "just got [yours] yesterday," I'm inferring from that that you paid a resellers bounty for these. Considering that someone likely extorted $500+ from you, but adjusting for the "hook up" that you'll invariably say that you received, we'll just set your acquisition...

    2013 Black/Gold Jordan 1 OG

    Patent leather, has, does, and always will feel cheap and insubstantial. These shoes are no different. There are no glaring quality deficiencies which is a good thing but I could say the same thing about my Royals.  Reading through some of the responses, one would almost think that folks are...

    2013 Black/Gold Jordan 1 OG

    @ Sthebest - Beautiful shoe bro. You have to admire someone who would put the time and creative energy into customizing something to look like another thing that appeals to them. @Grape - I have to agree with you on the "hypebeast" thing. Not everyone, who buys every shoe, that has fanfare...

    Well so much for that idea. lol Thanks for the clarification.

    2013 Black/Gold Jordan 1 OG

    I thought that there were two separate iterations of the same colorway in 1985 - a proposed limited retail release that was likely leather and there has been no independent confirmation on if it ever made it to a store for sale, and a patent leather version that was likely f & f.  The decidedly...

    2013 Black/Gold Jordan 1 OG

    Did you compare them to the many OG black/golds that you've had an opportunity to own over the years?  Thank you for your service by the way.

    2013 Black/Gold Jordan 1 OG

    I specifically know someone who is interested in Royals plus $25-$50 for their black/gold 1s. Size 10.5 too. PM me and I'll give you their # if you're interested.

    2013 Black/Gold Jordan 1 OG

    There are some floating out there.  I think at this point, trading is the best way to get them for close to retail. Inflated value for inflated value. There are (or "were") quite a few people looking to swap theirs for Royals straight up. Look around on NY's craigslist. They may all be gone...

    Air Jordan 1 Banned NO BUYING/SELLING/TRADING!!

    I missed these when they came out. Jordans were in my rear view then and it wasn't until a year after their release that I revisited my love for Jordan shoe collecting.  Anyway, someone offered me a straight up trade - his once worn Banneds for my black/gold 1s. I'm not asking what you think of...

    Air Jordan 5 "Grape" MAY 4th, 2013 - $160

    Nope. I'm right with you. They are a classic shoe but I can't do the emerald/purple colorway and the Vs have never appealed to me. They just seem cheap.  Good luck to all who are going for them though.

    2013 Black/Gold Jordan 1 OG

    Please don't tell them that. That's too complex for them. Let them keep deluding themselves with the thought that people who make a good income overpay for commodities to the tune of two to three times the cost of what the manufacturer says its valued at - and of course that is already after the...

    *Release Thoughts* Black Friday 2013

    Black/Red XII Hasn't been retroed in OG form in 10 years. That's a long interim time for a classic.  And 'no' I don't count that bastardized "flu game" concoction. Wrong material. Extra symbols. Wrong shape. It might as well have been a NU 12.

    Official Air Jordan I Retro BLACK/ROYAL Thread FEB 2013 - Show Some Maturity People

    Love that picture. Brings back memories.  Unfortunately though, most of the people saturating these Jordan releases today want to be like Kanye.  And that's also how grown men justify wearing effeminate jeans.

    Official Air Jordan I Retro BLACK/ROYAL Thread FEB 2013 - Show Some Maturity People

    I have a friend who is a regional IOA with Finishline. I can say this definitively...two of the stores listed on that list WILL NOT be getting the Royals in Q2 2013 at all. Unfortunately, that is the extent of her visibility into inventory.   After this fiasco, I had to ask her. She doesn't...

    Nike's new RSVP process

    I said in a previous post that Nike should just use trivia questions, math problems, or word association. Respond with the right answer the fastest.  And they can link it to some laudable education initiative.  No bot can tell you when the last time a traction trebuchet was used in battle and...

    Nike's new RSVP process

    Nike doesn't care about stopping the bots - at least not directly. On some level, they likely realize that they can't, so why try? It's not practical, and Nike knows that. So their stratagem is much more subtle, more calculated.  Those sitting around anxiously waiting for some kid with a...
