    :lol: no **** your pair isn’t the OG from 1985.... I meant OG version of the Black toe... it is an OG colorway in contrast to the Union Black Toe.

    Lol it’s a joke
    There’s some thing on twitter called “Retail Tuesday” where all the resellers sell off their brick shoes and make it seem like they doing people favors selling for retail

    Am I being punked? I keep bringing up the fact that it's not just about speed and you guys keep ignoring those points; most people understand they're small and couldn't handle the volume. That still does not explain them staying silent to explain to their customers why orders were taking as long as they were, or whether or not their orders were going to be cancelled well after the OG drop time. They told someone via a support email that they had finished cancelling orders on Tuesday, and if you weren't cancelled by then, you were safe. All they had to do was put that into an instagram or twitter post. Tack on a line about the high volume for their operation size, and the expected pickup time for UPS/DHL. They didn't. That's why their insta is still a battleground today.

    I repeat, again, because it didn't get through the first few times. The time is not the issue, it is everything else, primarily communication. I have no issues whatsoever with them reviewing orders case by case, in fact, I love that they did so. They definitely tried, but they dropped the ball on communication and weren't open with their customers unless you happened to get a non-copy-paste support e-mail. This caused a ton of issues for both the customers and them that could have been easily avoided.

    As well, what you pay for something and what they go for in the aftermarket have literally nothing to do with the businesses customer service. Trying to equate them is stupid.

    Anyway, I'm done arguing about this. If you don't understand my argument, that's fine, but please considering all angles before making a 1-dimensional counter-argument. If you don't voice your complaints or criticize poor business decisions, said business will never improve. Enjoy your kicks and have a great day.

    Mama I made it!

    These are honestly so good I got the blues for retail and sold some stuff to cover the resell on the black. Seriously considering selling some more stuff that I rarely wear to grab another pair of one of these while prices stay down. I cannot imagine these staying at these prices for too long and once they’re up they’re never coming back down 7E7893C0-5921-4164-B5A4-2FD0F0C3F2DB.jpeg

    Love people who provide nothing but being a jacka**. It was a simple question, if you don’t have anything to add to the conversation, why say anything at all?

    Because it’s a stupid question. No one knows. They can restock a lot and prices plummet or hardly anything restocks and it goes up; and you’ll get a million different answers on here. You’re better off using your own instincts.

    Right. I wasn’t searching for a definitive answer. I simply presented a topic of conversation to get feedback from my fellow NT community. You might think it was dumb, but I don’t.

    You need to just get it over with so we don’t have to read your daily updates on Black Toe pricing.
