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.
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. 🤷🏻‍♂️

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.

Clout, especially on social media, is apparently a HUGE currency with younger ppl. I doubt you give 2 s**ts about follower count, etc. and flexing but a lot of these ppl do. In fact, I don’t think you’ll find many ppl on NT who do since we, by and large, actually care about the shoes and not the likes/followers we get because of them lol

A lot of them wanna fit in and the other half is a wanna be reseller.

I was in target today and heard 2 employees talking about the space jam bron’s and he should tried for them because they are going for a lot rn.


wanted to tell him he better check again because only the one with the controller is worth anything :lol:

I remember lining up at a boutique for some sneakers and while in line the people in front of me were just talking about reselling the entire time :lol:. Mad corny imo, but that's how it is now.

Gotta charge it to the game.
Wish they get rid of the bot boys i can’t stand those clowns. No reason anyone should be getting a FSR from 1 site.
at least before the people that have full-size runs we’re outside buying pairs off people

Correct.

If only they knew how their quality of life would improve if they dumped all their social media activity and focused on actual real-life... also, if they knew how much of their individuality is being forfeited in the meantime. It's beyond sad. Parents share some of the blame too, though.

Will never return to ebay... it is the devil's playground. From scammers all the way through to the company's leadership.

Glad many are prospering, though. I'm 1000% out.

Question for the younger generation. Are you not getting tired of seeing everyone in Jordan 1’s and dunks? I’m not trying to be smart at all, I have a personal connection to the shoes but just thinking about when I was younger I didn’t want to wear what everyone else was. I remember going to puma’s and ASICS at one time. 😂
i would say no by looking at ig. all the wdywt pages are dunks, 1s, 3s, 4s, short shorts and nascar tees

does anyone know if there are any differences in mens and womens sizing and or materials in the jordan 1 low neutral greys? Im aware that 11.5 W = 10 in mens. But for this release, theres a mens and women version. So is a womens 11.5 W version the same as the mens size 10 version?

I bought both of my daughter's the white/grey low pairs while in NYC two weeks ago.

One is a W and the other is Mens and they spoke up about them being different this past Saturday.

Just from looking down at them both on foot... The W has a slimmer flatter "pointier" toebox. Other than that, the materials seem to be identical and both came in the regular og high box with a spare pair of grey laces.

If I remember this evening, I will take another look and see if I spot anything else.

I got the silver toes in a womens 13.5 / mens 12 but never tried them on. I do remember studying the toe and wondering if it was really equivalent to a mens 12, they seemed kind of small looking.

🤣🤣 This outfit description is too accurate. The only think that changes is sometimes the shirt is some type of vintage (or bootleg vintage) shirt instead. 🤣🤣

I'd always heard women's-specific sizing runs narrower, as well. Women apparently have much narrower feet than most men, regardless of the foot's length.

i can only speak for here in NY but for all the 1s that have dropped in 2 years i barely see anything more than 5 pairs on feet surprisingly. either people cook them asap or theyre hoarding their pairs.

and when i do see some they are royals, royal toes, black red, obsidan, volt and scarcely shadows
I rarely see any high top 1s worn. All I ever see worn on feet is mids. I think you may be on to something about people hoarding pairs. Shoe stores are instantly sold out in stores yet I rarely see them being worn.
