I can understand that some people have quicker internet connection through their service providers, but what do you guys mean by a "better computer" helping out? I guess I dont get it.

Buyer's beware...

I'm seeing a LOT of early release pairs on eBay and the sneaker forums being sold. Do your homework and ask for tagged pics of the receipt. Dudes looking to dump early release pairs.

My boy showed me his SDS pair and I burst out laughing compared to my finishline pair. So many slight differences and he paid double. If I didn't buy my pair in store I would of passed. Lot of dudes about to get over.

I got through on Eastbay with my iPhone. Your Internet connection and computer have very little to do with it. Majority of it is luck.
I was standing in line with my boy a University mall waiting for the midnight release. We were both on Eastbay on our iPhones. I hit add to cart and got a 3 minute wait, he did the very same and got a 7 hour wait. Needless to say I got my pair and he was ready to get into footaction.

Hope JB & major retailers can put their smart business minds together & come up with a solution to keep people safe but still make money. This has been going on for many years with jordans but it's getting worse every year, they changed the RD from weekdays to weekends to put a end to skipping school but now it's time for another idea. The resellers are making things worse because they're hogging up pairs when dudes who actually want them can't find them at retail & that leads to pure madness... SMMFH
In my opinion, I think the midnight releases should only be for 18 and up, if they adopted this method this can give the average consumer a chance to purchase. I've seen elderly men/women waiting hours outside in the cold, being pushed and even taken advantaged of by some dudes, whichsickensme.Sure we can say that we need new rules on releases but overall if someone gets killed it's free advertising for big business-it's sad but it's the truth.Now they got us looking like some fools

really a shame for those that got the authentic product
Its funny how you can literally feel the hype and anxiety amongst the communities..
People ordering from any.. And everywhere.

  
Wasn't aware of this debate. Are the HS or CT orders variants or fakes? i know both sites were on the legit list.
Neither HS or CT sell fakes, HS pretty much has the best type of account a shop could ask for with every manufacturer and has collaborated on shoes with New Balance, Reebok, and Asics. They were one of 20 shops to get to do a makeup for the 20th Anniversary Pumps that were limited to 29 pairs per shop, if you think a shop that has that kind of pull is going to put its rep in jeopardy to con a few hundred people with fake 11s, think again.  CT make take a while to ship to people in the US, especially those that order with the sneakersaver shipping option, but they've been around for a decade too. Just because a shop isn't on your radar 99% of the time, it doesn't mean they deal in fakes.

A lot of those auctions are for early release pairs and have internet and stock photos posted. I'd be blocking every single zero to negative feedback bidder immediately.
It doesn't really matter what you do when it comes to stopping someone from spoiling your auction. A deadbeat bidder can wait until the last second and put in a bid before you can cancel it. It has happened to me many times. Sellers can't leave negative feedback either. I don't feel sorry for these resellers but this is a big problem Ebay created and will not fix. I think resellers would not be getting trolled so hard if they weren't trying to price gouge people right before Christmas.

Very true. All you can really do is be vigilant and block all future bids from the ones that bid early on. Also, a reasonable price for these has gone from $250-300 to $350-400 now after all that went down on this release and the early release pair issue that @memphissfinest mentioned as the retail pairs now have much more strength on the market. I've compared an early release pair to the retail pairs I've held (which still have flaws of their own at times) and there is a very noticeable difference. It's worth it to pay a premium to be ensured you're getting a legit retail pair IMO.

God is good! I got really lucky with this release. Got my nephews pair before rd for under retail shipped. Fortunate enough to be first in line at finish line on rd. and last, got an order thru urban industry, which says when I tracked this morning, my shoes will be here TODAY! Wow. I hope everyone got a pair. Happy holidays everyone.

If they charged your paypal/cc then you should be good

These will go down just like the space jams. In March you'll see these going for 250 and up just like the space jams did. I saw a pair of space jams go for almost a 1000 on ebay just like the concords a day after release day. The hype and prices will go down over time especially if buyers don't give in to those ridiculous resell prices. People complain about resellers but buyers deserve almost 100 percent of the blame for being impatient and willing to shell out all of the extra money to buy the stuff.
