This is very possible and could be the reason but it’s not as likely imo. If you are a big time botter and you have THAT many pairs you probably have a controlling stake of the resale market. It happens all the time. Botters buy tons of stock and sit on it at a high price. As time goes that control increases bc people are selling and wearing their pairs. If a botter would do something like this you gotta ask yourself why....and why on GOAT specifically? Why for 320...essentially the break even point?

I feel like it’s gotta be either:
1. GOAT
2. Adidas
3. Another retailer or outlet
4. Fraud (tax evasion, money laundering, international, stolen)
5. Trump
This is interesting and it makes sense. All of a sudden the new highest bid went down to $311 actually, and the lowest for sale price was at $320. So if you had a bid in that range they blessed you.

$320 was the bottom because that's as low as they could go and still break even. They made all the pocket change scooping those bids (I think $352 was the highest) down to $320 and then leaving a couple pairs at that price.

Moral: Stay firm on your low bid. Mine was originally $343. I probably could have saved $12 bucks from the $355 I pulled at earlier in the day. Such is life. At least I got out before it jumped to $360+
like he said said sometimes your in too deep and need to be made whole before you take a lose. If your reselling through eBay StockX or goat you pay fees and your payout has to make sense. If my payout is under what I paid even though the shoe sells for 320 that’s not your payout. If price hits 300 I take a lose even if I’m in at 250-280 because fees kill my profit

doesn’t make sense if you could have moved all that stock through the raffle on confirmed. All that money would be recouped day 1 for adidas. I don’t think your accounting for bot users with deeeep pockets. It’s equivalent to the resellers that used to buy a stores entire stock. Bot users have turned into the guy that has all the backdoored pairs.
The volumes of these at $320 was low, maybe a hundred pairs across sizes, maybe. So very well could have been a bulk buyer/reseller.

The brands want the hype since that’s how all these releases sell. It’s the new game until it’s not. Sneakers are like baseball cards, but better. Why clear all your stock when you can create hype for the brand and model. Still sell your stock as a rerelease or through a partner and hype up the model and the next releases because everyone didn’t get them. All these brands are used to selling through retailers where the net half the box price. Better to limit them, get everyone on the secondary market bidding and sell for more.

Welp that would be considered price fixing and a form or price gouging to a degree but hey if their doing it so be it They failed with the QNTM lifestyle release. If that’s the case. Just dropping an infusion of shoes in the market at $320 for a multi-billion dollar company would just further screw resellers because it wouldn’t be for profit purposes. By making buyers drop bids to $320 would force resellers to lower prices and take a buyout around retail + tax and I’m here for that

Bariums straight to feet.

This shoe is roomy (went TTS, could have half sized down). Also no ankle socks with these joints. Colar mad annoying on the skin.

Boost feeling good as **** for a bball shoe.

The rubber toe cap on my 700v3 is creasing something horrible. Def due to sizing up but the toe box is so shallow I had no choice. Never used sneaker shields in my life but contemplating it on this pair.

Won't lie, when I posted the 320 price I wasn't expecting ppl to throw in their opinion on 'how/why' it dropped... Flat out just thought it was just bad timing on my end :lol:

We got NT'ers going full on detective mode with the theories but I'm here for it! :lol:

Watch all of you guys were on to something and this was some sort of manipulation of the market via a reseller or partner with Adidas... or better yet from Ye himself in a long game attempt to scare off resllers from future releases and try and put the shoes in the hands of ppl :nerd:

They were small sizes...guess that’s why the shape looked so goofy. That color way is pretty fire.

My Qntm arrived from ADC today and good thing I went half a size up, the toe box is really cramped, one heel cup misaligned but not a big deal 20200915_132724.jpg

Not even close to price fixing. Brands sell through channels be it retail like footlocker and footsites or resell like an eBay, SX, Goat al, the time and have forever. Controlling supply is the brands decision. They can make as many of a product as they’d like.

Resell is driven by scarcity, that’s what these brands need to control to ensure people still want these products.

QFT. I am starting realize a lot of people don’t know their TTS. (A lot of the feedback on sizing seems to come from people just happy to have the shoe.) I had to go down .5 sz w/Bariums And they fit perfect.
Lifestyles are a genuine TTS
If I am being honest 700V3 runs long. The slight tilt and the Shallow toe compensate for the extra room.

Statistically speaking, 68% of Americans wear the wrong size shoe. That was in 2015, the last time I had this conversation. Might be more now with the influx of Sneaker Lovers.

Agreed. I also went TTS in the Bariums and LENGTH wise I could do .5 size down but would be little too snug. At the same time, TTS in bariums the toe area is a bit snug HEIGHT wise but very doable whereas I have to go .5 up in 350 V2 due to lack of room in the toe area (height wise).

My sz 13 is down to $325 buy now/$310 highest bid. Crazy. People really bought these to brick em hard smfh might as well have left it alone and let everyone but at retail. Scumbags selling for 325 gonna make like $10 after fees.
