    This Footlocker GOAT investment is interesting to say the least.

    So is this like when Wal-Mart got into the used video games business?

    So resellers are gunna cop from FTL on release day..and immediately sell the shoe back to them, through GOAT? Jesus Christ I hope thats not it.

    No. Instead of FL selling the shoes for retail, they list them on GOAT for resell prices instead and they share the resell profit. You will now only be able buy non hyped shoes at FL. Smart investment by FL.

    Not serious

    That’s not it...

    You guys are blowing this out of proportion

    Don’t think this will change anything as how FTL has operated the last few decades

    This just shows how big and powerful GOAT is

    So what is it then? A retailer invests in a resale platform that resells the same product, don't be naive. Didn't ticket master do the same thing reselling concert tickets on a resale site.

    Nike isn't letting FL sell to Goat. Stop being ridiculous. FL invested in a business. That's it. It won't change how FL operates.

    It's not just a business it's GOAT one of the biggest sneaker resale platforms. If you want to think that the supplier and the dealer getting in bed together is innocent that's on you. Agree to disagree....

    Exactly

    There’s something’s that are gonna change but def won’t affect retail prices. If FTL gonna start reselling they’ll lose that Nike/JB account so fast

    When you order a shoe on Goat do you really know who the seller is? It’s anonymous. A lot of shoes under retail at the moment is all I’m saying. Never know if part of the deal is to sell slower SKUs on Goat.

    FL's supplier wont allow that. What part of that do you not grasp?

    Nike wont allow that either. Nike tells stores whe they can lower prices. They cant jut randomly slash prices to move stuff. It has to be approved. For instance, my parents own a chain of sporting apparel stores. When an NFL player changes teams, they have to get permission from Nike to lower the cost they are selling that guys jersey. Seems nuts but if you have a Nike account you play by their rules. FL isnt going to be funneling pairs to Goat on the low.

    What part of agree to disagree do you not grasp. They wouldn't enter a partnership unless it means more money. We'll just have to see how that's achieved.

    They didnt enter a partnership. They invested in a company that they think will continue to grow. They will make money as the company grows. FL is not going to be selling shoes on Goat. Nike simply won't allow it. From their comments today, I expect there to be an option to ship directly to Goat rather than having it shipped to your house.

    “We want to create a more seamless, frictionless experience for our customer that wants to partake in the secondary market,” says Johnson, who has run Foot Locker since 2014. “Partnering with GOAT strengthens our relationship and engagement with our customer.”

    Sounds about right

    Order Saturday at 10:01am, list and sell on goat at 10:15am. FTL ships directly to either the customer or goat

    Orders processed way faster

    :nerd:

    For those that sell on GOAT often...If the seller dropped off the package to ship but didn’t update on GOAT with “Dropped off” will it automatically update to “shipping to GOAT”

    I bought two pairs on Monday, got confirmed pretty quickly (within 15 min)...no update on Tuesday, and yesterday it updated to “seller packaging” and nothing after.

    Really hoping it’s on its way.

    I think it eventually would once it’s scanned

    I’ve always clicked dropped off so maybe someone else can confirm

    Yea that’s what I thought should happen.

    Based on GOAT’s policy, sellers have 72 hours to ship after confirming, it’s been over 72 hrs since this afternoon. I’ll give it another week and just hope the seller will ship.

    It will auto update once there is movement on the package, even if you don’t press dropped off.
