The main reason why they stopped Wednesday releases was due to kids skipping school.

Oh ya for sure I use to skip the whole day of school because at the time I lived 1 hour from the mall so we would meet up at the park throw ends on gas. Head to the mall be there around 930 get your Jordans then go home. I never went back to school though that same day LOL! Those were the days!

P.S Every now and then the rent a cop at the mall gave us a hassle but we always just be like whatever! Never got into any trouble

Yeah, I remember dudes leaving school after first period to take the Metro to the mall.


I miss the old days.  No hypebeasts, No Resellers, No Spizikes, Fusions,  No BS.

Personally i'm glad they do saturday releases now.  I have a 9-5 job and it aint easy to get time off of work...  But if wednesday releases were to come back, ill just order on the internet

part of me believes that Id want wednesday releases back, because most kids wouldnt be out all night in line making it hard for us real sneakerheads, but then getting off of work to cop shoes might not be the easiest thing either... But I guess people lining up for shoes on wednesday wouldnt be any different from kids and video games. some of the modern warfare 2 releases were horrible almost on a level of shoe releases, and that was a tuesday

saturday releases are cool in my book. is it really worth getting in trouble at work for some shoes? not in this economy. i need my job.

My moms would go get them for me and bring them to me for lunch. My dad would shake his head. I never asked for anything but Jordans when I was in school. I did everything for my parents so they did a little something for me.

The only time I can remember skipping school was that lovely October when the Concords were released. It was almost like no one knew about them at the particular store I was at. Walked right in and right out with no line at all.

I missed those days when I could cop whatever J I wanted and didn't have to worry about them selling out even when being out in line all night.  I still remember getting the concord and columbia retro releases with no prob.
