All I can say is WOW. I have to admit the Jays they had on the right side of the store behind the glass case caught my eye. But then I just laughed when I saw all the ridiculous price tags.

Anyone else see this?

Oh so these are the prices that people want them to sell for at the store? How much would they need to pay First Step to sell it for them?

I've sold a couple of my shoes through their consignment program, it's real easy. It's basically the same as flight club 80/20 ratio..which is why the price tags might be so high. You never know who's going to buy your shoes too, I gave them three mediocre J's to sell (like steel X's, some low VIII's, and something else) and in a few weeks they cut me a check for $550 :wow:

The price tags on those shoes are real steep because two parties profit off the sale. It's a weird situation. Why noy sell them yourself on NT or ebay and cut out the middle man, that's what the free market is all about...

^^ the reason they need a middle man sometimes is bc people trust the stores more than some dude trying to sell on cl or nt. most people dont know what nt is so thats why some people feel this is the right thing to do. yea the prices are hella high but then again its 80/20. i think that is funny that they didnt do any checks if their was some fake xi's im new to jordans but common if you sell shoes for a living you should know stuff about shoes. but then again it doesnt matter they get 20%.

"We wish Jordan were 7-feet, but he isn't. There just wasn't a center available. What can you do? Jordan isn't going to turn this franchise around. I wouldn't ask him to. He's a very good offensive player, but not an overpowering offensive player."

the consignment program is pretty whack for buyerss, the prices are horrible!! they really dont have heat and if u need that stuff ur way better off on ebay. They wanted 675 for a pair ds bred IVs. I know their worth alot but not that much! I think that place is gonna be finished here on market because the new Sheik gets everything they have plus jordan LS series and urban quickstrikes, first step doesnt get any of that stuff.

yeah FS only has a few more years I think. they just closed down a few stores. them moving across the street and upgrading the look didn't do much but lose them money. if u notice tourist are scared to walk on that side of the street where the store is. some years ago they use to sell fakes.

I remember the good days when I could go to FS(near Blondies or the one in Serramonte) and get Jordans before the release date for retail.
