And once again I’m not being smart or condescending to anyone. I know why I want the shoes I grew up in that era and I’m over it already. Just trying to figure out why anyone younger would deal with Jordan 1’s and dunks right now.It seems like the younger people you are talking about are, by and large, attracted to whatever is hyped at the moment. A few years ago it was 350s, Hu/R1 NMDs, and UBs and for the past couple of years AJ 1s and Dunks have been the primary hype wave (ironically I bought SB dunks in 2015-2016 for like $50-$60 on sale from skateshops and even NDC lol). I am wondering if the overall hyped sneaker market will recede a bit for a while, seems like all the resellers are turning it into a bubble in the past year and a half or so.
sidenote: will say this for Nike/JB they’ve got everybody right where they want them. Trying for everything on SNKRS just to be able to hit on something whether they actually wanted it or not.
