    Dear Jordan Brand,

    Please continue producing retro Jordans in large quantities like the Aqua 8 and Maroon 6 releases. This helps relieve a ton of pressure from sneaker-heads, which the majority of us actually don't make a lot of money. This allows us to not purchase $100s worth of bots, which crash your systems and costs you millions. It allows for relaxed in-store releases because most people will get their size or can purchase on their mobile phone. Most of all, it stops resellers from buying mass quantities and reselling for profit to uneducated sneaker-heads. The demand will always be there. We love Jordan shoes...especially OG colorways. That's the bottom line!

    Thank you JB! Keep it up!

    P.S. - The Nike servers need to do raffles a few days before...not the day off. It's such an inconvenience for people that don't have a lot funds to have sitting at Nike.com waiting for raffle results.

    I love that I can easily buy a GR pair of Jordan Retros but I HATE how hard it has become to pick up a decent pair of Adidas UB. However, the entire Yeezy Boost line seems to have taken a lot of the reseller hype away from J's so even earlier GR releases from this year can be had for retail, which is amazing. Sneaker hype doesn't die, it just shifts, I guess.

    Hopefully, the Retro market crashes and Nike puts models up on Nike ID... I dream of the day this happens.

    but you're reselling in your sig? If you don't make a lot of money why are you buying $220 shoes in the first place?

    LMAO!

    I'm not one for counting anyone's pockets but I must say, not making a lot of money and spending $220 on sneakers is silly in my eyes. Heck, I make fairly decent money and I still feel $220 is a lot. But congrats on your pickup...

    The price of shoes has increased. Even though materials may cost more, I feel that the amount of markup/profit that Nike has received, should have covered the increase in materials cost. I do love that it's easier to get a pair of retros.. I really want the 72-10

    I just like sleeping in on Saturday mornings. So I hope this recent trend continues.
